    Well, I was applying a Drivekey modchip into my 4.0u wii, which was done successfully after a few tries. As soon as I turn my Wii on, it showed a black screen. That was when I knew it was bricked. I can use SaveMiiFrii and it shows the 4.0U at the bottom right corner. I was wondering if there was a way to update from 4.0U to 4.1J while the Wii is bricked. And if I can do it successfully, am I able to downgrade from 4.0J back to 3.2U? Any help would be great.

    This was a clean Wii with no preloader, starfall ,etc.

    how have u managed to brick you wii with out actually soft modding it first?

    sounds to me like youve damaged the wii by incorrectly installing the drivekey

    Well, I just tried to boot up the wii without the Drivekey installed and it still shows on the screen as if it was bricked.

    That is wierd. Whatever you do, Don't install 4.1J cause that will cause a region brick.

    Alright. Thanks for the tip. I guess I'll just wait until a 4.1U update download comes out and try SaveMiiFrii.
