    Hello, i am Kyranio.

    Let me first tell you this:

    I wanted to hack my wii because i wanted to do more things with my wii.
    So i followed this tutorial series on youtube
    REMOVED FAILTUBE LINK
    So i did evereything what he told me to do, and a lot of tutorials are the same.
    I used LetterBomb, got evereything just like the guy showed in the video.
    (I have an old white wii from 2007 or somewhere around that time)
    I got the HBC (Home brew channel) and Bootmii and actual just evereything you need.
    I installed a hack pack, wich worked.
    Evereything went all well untill i installed this theme.

    Now in the tutorial he told you about a black wii theme, wich was only for version 4.1u
    (I had version 4.3E)
    So i installed it, and it got bricked.
    Next i thought, hey i have PriiLoader installed. I can give holding the reset button a try.
    It worked, i entered that menu and degraded my wii to version 4.1e.
    Then i stupidly wanted to test the theme, but it didn't work again.
    (Then i found out that the guy with the tutorial just putted a stupid little text balloon with warning this is only for 4.1U -.-)
    So i tried my solution again, but i think in 4.1 the wii boots diffrently so i can't enter the menu anymore. How quick, hard or whatever i press the reset button. It doesn't work anymore.

    So my question is:

    How to fix a full bricked wii (boot does work, light flashes once, no warning safety thingy but a black screen.)
    where you can't enter PriiLoader for some reason.

    Pleace help...

    Thank you for reading,
    Sincerely

    Kyranio.

    You screwed yourself. When you downgraded to 4.1 you removed priiloader. When priiloader is installed it attaches itself to the system menu. If you didn't reinstall priiloader, you don't have it anymore.

    Your only hope is if you have bootmii installed as boot2. Watch the blue light of the disc slot closely when you power on your Wii. If it flashes twice very quickly you might be able to recover.

    I'm not sure if savemii would work in this situation or not. I'm not a brick expert like mauifrog is so some research would be in order if the boot2 option is off the table.

    Hold up a sec. Did you uninstall bootmii?!?

    If the bootmii folder is not on your SD card it will not require you to push the button twice. We have most people just rename that folder until they need it. If you didn't actually uninstall bootmii there may be some hope!

    Oh man, you failed big time on so many levels. Sorry dude....

    Do some research on the savemii option. Im super busy working on another WiiHacks project at the moment, but if you are lucky you might be able to do something. (I dont want your luck tho...lol)

    It's always standard in a wii...

    Do you know for sure you don't have bootmii as boot2? You could download the appropriate bootmii folder from this thread http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...creen-wii.html put on a fresh sd pop in wii and hope for the best... also that article is good reading.

    Yeah that's what I was referring to, savemii. Or is it savemiifrii? Hell, I was carefully enough never to have to use it, so I've only read about it. Either name, that's what you can look into. And blu's advice as always is good.
