Don't know if this is the right place for this but I would ask that it be moved if not. Anyways- my wii is softmodded, I have HBC, apps for things like CFG, a few wads installed for DIOS MIOS, and bootmii (I think? I'll elaborate on this in a sec). I've been looking around for how to fix this but for most people the issue was just over heating, and I THOUGHT that was my issue this time... except it hasn't done anything for nearly 5 hours, despite several attempts to get it to show something. When I turn it on, the light turns green, and the disk drive runs (because of DM) but nothing happens after that. Now, my wii has had some problems previously (at least, I'm ASSUMING they were problems and not how it functions for most people) including LOTS of freezing with DIOS MIOS, whether starting up or mid game, and occasional freezes playing wii games via CFG. In general though the wii hasn't been that uncooperative unless I try to load via bootmii or play GC games for too long. It's done something like this before as well, but started working when we gave it time to cool down. Now I don't really know whether this is relevant or not, but here's a brief summary of the long story of modding my wii in the first place: >Wanted to play Melee: SD Remix, so I go to learn how to softmod wii a few months ago >try stack smash >doesn't work, stage builder just loaded to a exception 0700, w/e that is >try a dozen times, including with clean downloads and new SD cards >Still didn't work >Ask for help various places, letter bomb suggested >still didn't work >double check everything, clean install on new SD card >still didn't work >EXCEPTION 0700, EXCEPTION 0700 EVERYWHERE >occasional stack dump while trying though >Day after I gave up, dropped wii 2 feet onto tile accidentally >wondered jokingly to friends if it would install HBC now, start up letterbomb hack >It finally worked >Still fucking confused to this day Now about having bootmii... I installed it when I finally got letterbomb to work for me, and at the time it worked so I made a NAND backup, which I still have. But a while later I tried to start it up to no avail, the drive just flashed despite having changed nothing. I have since taken the files off my SD card (tho I still have them on my laptop) so that I could still use my wii. Just yesterday I TRIED to install a wad so I could have a forwarder for CFG (the glass on in particular) but it refused to do so, giving me an error and saying "ret -2011". I feel like that wouldn't be the issue, but may be related to a core issue that is the primary cause of most of these problems I'm having with my wii, including this current one of pretending that it's not on. So having said all that, a condensed history of my bad luck plagued wii... does anyone know how to help or what the problem is? TL;DR Wii was uncooperative trying to initially softmod, was moody after we successfully softmodded it, and now randomly one day won't even output any AV. Any help please? I can show a syscheck that I did just yesterday after the CFG forwarder wad refused to install, if that helps.
