    I have a bricked wii that doesn't have priiloader installed or bootmii as boot2. It was simply a mistake that costed me my wii (for now). I opened wad manager 1.7 and installed a wii theme. I didn't like it, so I uninstalled it and now I'm facing the consequences. A FULL BRICK. Any help is appreciated as always, and if nothing works, I will simply A) Buy a new wii, or B) Send it to DeadlyFoez for repair (if possible). I know that the system menu is simply uninstalled from my wii. Is there a way to fix it?

    EDIT: I posted something in the Random Discussion forum section, and felt this would be a better place for this forum to be.

    I think I may be able to access recovery mode and then Boot up an updatable Disc to make it a semi brick, and fix it from there.

    You uninstalled the System Menu. Without a nand backup, there is no coming back from that.

    How can I tell if I have a nand backup?

    And hello again lol

    Edit: I watched how to back up NAND and I do remember Doing that! It was required. So, with that being said, will the recorvery mode work?

    I don't understand why these people don't take preventive measures like installing priiloader and saving a NAND backup. But then again with a name like firecrotch219 I think I understand...

    No No, I did install priiloader. But when I installed a theme, I was unaware that uninstalls priiloader. So I had a backup plan that went wrong. And I have a NAND Back up I just dont know what to do with it I suppose

    Well, you're only hope at this point is sending the wii to me with an SD card that has the NAND.bin backup on it.

    Okay, I may have to do that. Thanks for replying btw, And how can I make sure I have it on the SD card?

    Edit: nvm, I found it.

    Edit2: Oh crap, No I didnt. That isn't my Nand.bin Backup. I had two copies of the same SD card for my friends wi and my own. Mine doesn't have a nand.bin or bootmii/Boot2, or priiloader installed.... So I take it there is nothing I can do now, Right? Or would it be possible to use a NAND dump from another wii and some how make it work on my wii?

    a NAND backup from another wii will not help you. But there is still a chance as long as you DONT TURN ON YOUR WII ANYMORE!!!!

    The more that you turn on your wii to screw around makes the chance of repair a lot less if you don't have a NAND backup for that wii.

    DeadlyFoez, you are a savior, I shall unplug it right now. How much do you charge in a situation like this?

    Edit: I think this version my be possible to have Bootmii on Boot2, but I didn't set it either because it wasn't or I didn't know how to. Of course I do Now.

    This is why I wish XFlak would remove the option to install a SM wad with the theme. When messing with themes, you should never re-install the SM, because then you lose Priiloader.
