    I was stupid enough to install Piiloader on my vWii. Now it's bricked, just black screen. Wii U works normally. What do I do?

    why wouldn't you read a guide first? i know it's a mundane question and not what you want to hear, but man, why would you do something without knowing if it is safe or not?

    there is no hope for you with anything available at the moment. you will have to wait... if anything ever even happens at all to be able to fix it...

    I have been expecting more of these threads. Any guide I've found is clear, no priiloader. I do have remorse for bricks that are not caused by illiteracy and assumptions. Accidents happen and maybe if Wii U unlock is shared then you can fix this. However, this still makes me laugh a little. "Do not install priiloader you will brick.". Then the good old, "Help me I installed priiliader and I bricked" threads comes along.

    I got mine back from Nintendo the other day fully repaired, it's worth a try to attempt a warranty repair if you play dumb.

    What if Nintendo sends it back to you saying, sorry boy, you installed not approved software on the console and thus the warranty has been void xD

    Saludos gente!

    BootMii doesn't work on vWii so if possible it would take some special equipment and you'd have to have the keys for that console already to maybe use some of GiantPrune's tools to adjust the dump to be usable with a different Wii U.

    I've sent my modded bricked Wii to Nintendo multiple times and they didn't do any check on the nand for unauthorized software. Just call and say "hey, my vwii mode just takes me to a black screen, FIX IT!" they will check your year or more warranty and say "ok" but this will take your Wii U away for a few weeks.

    Try maintenance mode (hold + & - at safety screen then click A). I semi bricked mine and have to load into this mode to play games.
