    Bricked Korean Wii With Firmware 3.3

    Here's the summary of my problem. (Actually, it's my daughter's WII, and she bricked it. But, I was able to collect these information.) There is a similar post to this, but this post contains the detailed explanation of all the situation .

    >A Korean Wii with 3.3 firmware version.

    >It has got auto boot enabled Drivekey with Korean settings on jumper.

    >While trying to run a copied "RVL Wii Music (Pal)", it asked for an update. After this firmware update and then system restart, WII got bricked. It shows health screen and asks to "Press A to continue". But, when I press A, screen goes blank and WII stops responding. Before firmware update, the health warning message used to be displayed in a Korean language but after this wrong firmware update, it is displayed in English. More about the game called WII Music (Pal) which caused this brick, it contained a firmware 3.3E_v1 with ISO30 anti Homebrew inside. (Got this information from WII Update Manager).

    >No TP Hack, no HBC, no Bootmii, no NAND backup, nothing. (I heard that Korean WII 3.3 without TP Hack and HBC cannot be repaired. Is it so? Also, will NAND re-flashing help? But I don't have backup of NAND.)

    >I used Savemefrii and it booted to rescue screen with firmware 3.3(KOR) at the bottom.

    >I tried to boot from autoboot discs. Tried "Nintendo's Offical Wii BackUp Disk v1.31", "Universal Unbrick Disc V2", "Auto-boot enabled game disc", and many more, but no success. None of them auto-boot. Those disc spins for few second, then stop. Non of them were able to boot.

    It's just a Korean WII with Auto-boot enabled Drivekey on it and nothing else. I can go through a very tricky and complex process as I can't send it to Nintendo as I'm outside US. Also, I'm familiar with both software & hardware mod.

    I have a bit confusion here. I have been searching Korean games but haven't got anywhere in the internet to download. Whenever I search, I end up with Europe or USA version of those games. I would be grateful if you provide me little help about where I can get Korean version of this game download.

    The very first rule.

    afaik most times Korean version of games don't always get dumped, It might be hard finding it.
