    Hi all hope someone can help here

    It all started when my daughter formated the memory so homebrew was gone so i was trying to put it back on.

    I have a Wiikey V2 installed in my Wii, however while installing the homebrew channel first off i had to install the software onto my SD card etc and run it,

    I am running 3.4E by the way if any help.

    I was using Bannerbomb to install it first off i had to use Downgrade IOS35.dol done that installed Wad Manager and associated files.

    This is where i had trouble i dont know was something still installing or downgrading i thought it was frozen so i turned it off (nOOb) resulting in me having a black screen when i turn it on. I dont even get the safety screen to press A.


    Any help would be appricated as this is my daughters wii and dad is in trouble if she want to play with it thank feck the Sims 3 is out.

    Is there a way to boot from a cd or something, I tried that iso from wiikey site but didn't boot. I also downloaded syn-backup1_31 (did not try it) which was linked on another post but stated it didn't work with bricked wii if thats what i have.

    I am not getting any error message as some have posted just a black screen but the wii will accept discs.

    Sending it back to nintendo is not an option as its been modded.

    Would getting SaveMii work for me.

    I dont mind loosing whatever was saved better to play again than not to play at all.

    Thanks in advance

    1) Serial number of Wii?
    2) Press all four d-pad buttons on a GC controller (or dance pad) down while plugged into fourth controller port. Report back results.
    3) NEVER turn off a downgrader. EVAR.
    4) Dude. Bootmii.
    5) Sims 3 is not out on Wii [​IMG]

    black screen normally means disconnected or broken bluetooth module.
    open it up and see if it's loose if not you'll need to get a new bluetooth module.

    No still not working we were at it for ages no joy. [​IMG]

    Options 1. is there anyone here has a shop or do repairs that can do it (will pay for it to be done) i asked ghost2fitter where i bought it but they said they dont repair bricked wii

    Option 2. Send it back to nintendo i purchased it at christmas so its still in warranty but will they remove my wiikey, If remove my wiikey myself will i have a warranty void, Having a wiikey installed is it void anyway

    Option 3. buy SaveMii use it with these discs Brick Fixing Discs

    Any advice and help would be greatfull

    Normally the warranty sticker is put over the screws on the wii so as soon as you try and access the internals - nintendo will know and this typically voids the warranty.
    A totally blank screen means either a hardware failure (highly unlikely, but not impossible, in your case given the circumstances leading up to it) or NAND corruption which is entirely more likely. This can only be restored via Bootmii and as you have not backed up your NAND I cant see how you can restore it.

    If you get no video output then Savemiifrii will not work at all therefore this brick is different than what you are experiencing. Form my own personal experience I corrupted my NAND but the Wii will behave the same if the Bluetooth receiver is toast.

    Question for the topic starter. Can you turn on the Wii with the Wiimote? If you can do this it is probably not the bluetooth but rather your NAND at which point without BootMii installed you are gonna have to send it back to Nintendo. Take out the chip if you can otherwise you might have to bit the bullet.

    been having problems with it since then .. when i would try to go my Wii
    Settings it wont let into my settings and when i tried to play a game i downloaded
    a few months ago it wouldn't let me play the game and i also tried to upgraded back to 4.2U
    cuz when i was on 4.2U before i never had any problems Not Even Once So i upgraded it to 4.2U and after when i did that my wii stopped working completely and this is what i used ... 4.2U-RVL-WiiSystemmenu-v481.wad and what happen is that i tried to install IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad with DOP-Mii and couldn't do it but it somehow let me
    download 4.2u-RVL-WiiSystemmenu-v481 and after when i did that is when everything went dead and i need to know if theres any hope for me at all [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It's usually wiser to start your own thread instead of hijacking someone elses.

    For whatever reason you downgraded, in your attempts to do whatever you were doing, it looks like you borked the system menu. If you don't have BootMii on boot2 then you're rather screwed. It would be helpful to define what you're calling "dead." Does it not turn on anymore, just a black screen? Since you reinstalled the system menu, I'm guessing you killed Priiloader. Hold reset after pushing Power, if you don't see Priiloader's menu -- sorry to say, but you shouldn't mess with installing wads to IOS unless you are 100% sure of what you're doing.
