    Not normally no. Depends largely on what you have done to cause the brick in the first place i.e. State of System Menu.

    A full brick typically means you have no System Menu to boot. A black screen at power on and no Preloader.

    You can test by using the savemiifrii technique to see if you can enter recovery mode. Put a Gamecube controller in Port 4, press Up, down, left, right when you power on the Wii. If it works you'll get your System Menu revision in the bottom right corner. Check youtube for savemiifrii.

    I did something really stupid, I installed a bunch IOS's from 4.2 on my 4.1 system.
    I was trying to get rid of cIOScorp, so I could update my homebrew channel.
    I thought I was installing the IOS's for 4.1. I screwed up bad.

    All the IOS's that I installed

    IOS9-64-v521.wad
    IOS11-64-v256.wad
    IOS12-64-v269.wad
    IOS13-64-v273.wad
    IOS14-64-v520.wad
    IOS15-64-v523.wad
    IOS17-64-v775.wad
    IOS20-64-v256.wad
    IOS21-64-v782.wad
    IOS22-64-v780.wad
    IOS28-64-v1550.wad
    IOS30-64-v2816.wad
    IOS31-64-v3349.wad
    IOS33-64-v3091.wad
    IOS34-64-v3348.wad
    IOS35-64-v3349.wad
    IOS36-64-v3351.wad
    IOS37-64-v3612.wad
    IOS38-64-v3610.wad
    IOS50-64-v5120.wad
    IOS53-64-v5149.wad
    IOS55-64-v5406.wad
    IOS56-64-v5405.wad
    IOS60-64-v6400.wad

    So do you think there's no saving it? I did have preloader, but I guess it was installed on one of the IOS's that I over wrote.

    Only now am I fgetting back to this thread.

    You stub bricked it. IOS60 v6400 is probably a stub IOS as 4.2 doesn't need the 4.0/4.1 system menu IOS.

    Unless you have bootmii/boot2 you are stuffed. Pay for a Nintendo repair or throw it away.

    I do have don't have bootmii as boot2, only as an IOS. I couldn't install it as boot2.
    But I do have a nand backup, so what do you think about the infectus chip?

    I don't know a whole lot about infectus. I know a couple of guys tried it but it failed.

    It's surprising how little information there is about infectus. It seems to be an older method of brick recovery. You would need your NAND keys anyway.

    I think the nand key is in the nand.bin right?

    No. Your key is contained within the nand.bin. In hackmii beta 3 I believe they started to save it as keys.bin or something.
