Definitely a full brick there. If you have bootmii or preloader installed, than its a no big deal. But if u dont have both of them, well i think someone senior here know the solution. Good luck

actually this is a banner brick, you get it when you install ios60 with preloader already installed... try booting while holding reset if you have it, it will bring you to preloader menu. reinstalling preloader 0.29 may fix it

Just followed these instructions exactly and ended up with my homebrew channel not working, just get a blank screen.. Managed to step back with Bootmii... Any idea why this would be??

I'm having a problem with the last step: using the 4.1 update.
I'm getting either:
1. The updater sits forever trying to initialize the network or
2. More often I'm getting an exception DSI? error and a bunch of numbers on a black screen
3. Sometimes I get a an "error ret=-116" error from the updater before it goes to the exception screen
I have wii connect 24 off
I'm trying to update from 3.4 in order to install preloader as described in the other "soft mod any wii" thread. Everything was working fine until this point. ???

"error -116 could not find network"
it's a long shot but... you do have an internet connection... right???

Fair question... YES. I I do have a connection... I had it before I started the softmod process...

A quick background. I had previously sucsessfuly softmodded my Wii, Home Brew, USBLoaderGx. I was attempting to follow the guide here and have managed to banner brick my Wii. This happened when i was attempting to install IOS60patched.wad with the wad manager. I am not sure what I have done as I am still so new to this i dont even know how to tell you what wads i have installed, and had some problems doing the origional soft mod, so please excuse my ignorance as I try to learn more about this.
If I let the system boot normal I get the banner brick screen, However if I boot the system while holding reset I get the preloader v0.29 screen, and can launch the HBC from there with no problems that I can see. I can also load the WAD manager from here as well, however I get a dump screen with just about every IOS i select.
Should I attempt to restore it to a "Virgin" state, and try again? Or would one of the restore chips work better?
Damn I wish these were laid out as easy as the XBox's were!!!!!
Thanks in advance,

try configuring it again, the error suggests a problem with the connection,, maybe the router won't do a good job or sth... try again a couple of times

Many thanks Messie! I am able to boot to the system menu. Am I correct in assuming that i would just run the 4.1 update now?
The only reason I am trying to update is so the newer backups will work correctly. Is it worth updating to the new version?
