    Question Hi, newbie in need of help on bricked wii ??

    Can someone please point me in the right direction to get some help on unbricking my wii?

    My wii has the original wiikey 1.99 beta installed. I had the homebrew channel until I loaded Mario Galaxy 2. Requested update. Dumb me did it. Im at 4.3u. Lost home brew channel. I tired to do the SSBB with fix 4.3 r6, and it told me it could not install the homebrew channel for some reason. I took a picture. It says " This Installer can not continue" There is no known vulnerable IOS installed on this Wii. Please note that we will not use a fake signed IOS due to security reasons. ETC....

    So I tried the process over again, and when I tried to load the WAD again, it told me, " loaded 1, 16 failed. Anyway, now I have a black screen, and no Wii menu. When I put my SD card in, I do get the BOOTMII screen, that gives me the option to reinstall my saved NAND. I have the saved Nand.bin, but do not have the keys.bin. I tired to recover it, and it went thru all the green blocks and now they are grey. I still have a black screen.

    What am I doing wrong, or what do you professionals recommend to recover my wii?

    Thanks so Much.

    Hey rkelly6, this section is for intros. Perhaps the BRICKED only section would be the place to start looking. Read the Sticky threads. Bootmii starts so you can probably fix it, so that is good news.
