Hey, i'm creating another thread because only 2 persons replied to my other one, and i have a little made 'progress' since... I think that more people will be able to help me if i explain the whole situation on a new thread. That being said, let's go to the problem. My wii is bricked. It was working just fine, but i didn't use it since ~2011 . I was trying to play Mario Power Tennis and i couldn't get it running, i googled it and saw somewhere that i should try to launch it with ios 222. As soon as i did it, the game didn't launch,gave me a black screen, i turned it off and then,since this, the console gives me a black screen when i turn it on. Notes: -> The cables are working just fine. -> It's not a Bluetooth problem . I can still use my wiimote to turn it on, but it won't connect to the console. -> Wii's DVD reader is not working at all. Had this problem some time ago, but didn't manage to fix it, therefore i've been using USB LOADER GX to play backups. -> I DON'T have a Nand Backup from before the wii bricked. Only a Nand backup that was generated AFTER the wii bricked. Things i have tried: - Removing all cables from wii and from power plug for 5/10/120 minutes. Didn't work. - Tried checking if i have priiloader installed doing the reset button press. I don't. - I know i have bootMii as boot2 , i went to ModMii and generated some files, i can access bootmii. --When i try to select "Wii Menu" from it, black screen. ---When i try to select "Homebrew Channel" from it, black screen. -I tried selecting the third option in Bootmii (the SD CARD icon) , and booting "bootmini.elf" . Didn't work,all i got was a greenish screen. -Tried to use this tutorial : , did not work. As soon as the wii boots up, i get this error : ( " cboot2 dol loader v16 Ios version 2 v16 0x00020010 failed to load ios " ) -I'm trying to use ohneschwanzenegger to format my nand backup (the one after the brick) and restoring it on Wii. but I get this error : "Dump is for another Wii" , and if i press Power/Reset/Eject, it says "Try harder, Hashimoto-san!". -- AFAIK , i would need an GC Controller to 'force' it to restore the new 'virgin' NAND ,doing the KONAMI code thing . I don't have any,and it's kinda difficult to get one here where i live. Well, that's pretty much it. I'm trying all ways to fix this as soon as possible. I DON'T MIND ABOUT GETTING EVERYTHING EXCLUDED (saves/wads/etc.) As long as i manage to get it working. I'm only trying to revive that particular Wii because i'm going to lend it to my girlfriend, and she was very excited about it. PS : -From what i read, another solution would be getting HBC to work (either repairing or reinstalling it), then i would be able to fix my problem. -Someone also told me that my BootMii is 'outdated' , and that could be a problem ... Any way to update it without HBC? Remember i only have Access to BootMii , no HBC or Wii Menu. Well,that's pretty much it. I'm willing to do mostly anything, since this wii has no use now. Just want to get it working. Feel free to ask anything, to ask me to do tests, etc. Thanks in advance GBATEMP, happy new year.
