    Hi,

    Im trying to solve a friends problem.
    I've been looking for a solution but couldnt find one.

    He was in 3.3 so he updated to 4.0 with wanin method.
    Here...everything ok. But when he updated to 4.1 (wanin method), the wii doesnt boot.

    Led gets green but no video output.
    No health screen, no bootmii screen (despite he has the bootmii installed as boot2).
    No Gamecube cards or controls.

    Accepts and starts to read GameDisk...but no output.

    UPDATE: From what he said...he has made a downgrade (really long time ago).

    Any help? Please?

    Sounds like a full brick.
    Unless you had Bootmii, you have to send it to Nintendo.

    Thing is...
    He has bootmii as boot2.

    And he has a nand backup.

    But nor health screen nor bootmii screen boots up on begining.

    I've heard about the GC controller method. Think it will help herE?

    if your friend has bootmii as boot2, i can't understand why bootmii cannot load. might as well verify the configuration file of bootmii in the sd card. updating from 4.0 using wanin's firmware updater to 4.1 also using wanin's could not be the source of the brick unless the power is interrupted during the system menu upgrade...strange?

    The only way that BootMii as Boot2 could have been defeated is...

    -Hardware failure, probably unrelated to the install of Waninkoko's firmware
    -Updating to 4.2 through Nintendo

    Installing Waninkoko's 4.1 couldn't have gotten rid of bootmii/boot2. I know this sounds stupid, but did you make sure the video cables were completely plugged into the Wii and your TV?

    is the Bootmii folder on the SD card, i think Bootmii boot2 will only boot if it is
