bricked 3.4usa help!!
hi! i have a 3.4 usa here that is not mine and i cant tell how it bricked.
it gives the msg "the system files are corrupted"and its all crooked weird
im able to use the savemiifrii gc controller method and it gives me the black screen with the 3.4 usa in the bottom
i tried different auto boot update disk and installed a wiikey2 with clip that i had on hand but all disks spins then restart spinning
i cant go any further!
any ideas on how i could revive this wii??
do you have preloader? (Hold reset when you power on to bring it up if you have it)
or bootmii installed as boot2? (Your dvd light will flash twice quickly when you power on if you have it)
edit: And I'm pretty sure your modchip has to be configured to auto boot for the update disc trick to work.
yess preloader has apeared! i must say that i dont know anything about homebrew ive been in the modchips always!
what should i do next?
and thanks a lot!
preloader should say an IOS and version at the bottom. What does it say?
ios v50 and system menu v385
im reading the preloader brick fix sticky by mauifrog (hope im on the right track!)but i dont see the 3.4u system update to download so im not sure about it!
if im on the right track can i use ios 50 and a 4.1 system or do they have to be the same?
Did the person recently install any wads or channels that could have been bad? I think you'd benefit from taking a look at this: http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...brick-fix.html
edit: I just put 2 and 2 together and realized that your problem is preloader doesn't work with 3.4. Follow the link above to work it out

and 3.4U: SystemMenu-NTSCU-v385.rar
(thanks to Tealc cause I stole the links from him)
but you really need to talk to the owner to rule this out:
If you recently installed a wad, usually for a custom channel of some sort, WiiWare, or VC title, do not follow this guide. You are likely bannerbricked, and this is not for you. If you can see the health screen, you are likely bannerbricked as well. You must uninstall the bad banner to fix your issue.
The following procedure will reinstall your system ios and system menu, removing preloader/priiloader in the process. If it fails to fix your issue, you will no longer have a functional preloader/priiloader to work with.
ok thanks again for the great help i will contact the owner tomorrow to see if he can clear this one out! i will post my results anyways if it can help others
