    I updated my Wii to 4.3U using the Wii's system update. I then followed the guide here:

    http://gbatemp.net/t171901-modify-any-wii-4-3-below

    It was all very quick and followed the guide as expected. I used SmashStack, installed BootMii, backed up my NAND, and installed Priiloader. Now, about a week later, I can't get the Wii to boot properly. Priiloader no longer runs when I hold Reset as I turn the system on; it just leads to a black screen. BootMii will load if I have the SD card inserted. However, choosing to go to the system menu or to HBC both result in a black screen as well.

    I tried to restore my NAND through BootMii, and here's what it does:

    "RestoreMii, NAND ID: ecdc1095
    Checking boot2...
    BootMii found in boot2, ok to proceed.
    Dump is for a different Wii.

    Once again, if you are really
    SURE you want to do this, KONAMI.
    Otherwise, press [Z] to give up."


    I am 100% sure that the NAND backup is, in fact, for MY Wii.
    After that, each time I press any button on the GC controller, it says:

    "Try harder, Hashimoto-san!"


    Does anyone know what the problem may be, and what some options would be in this situation? It would be greatly appreciated!

    Possibly due to different versions of Bootmii installers being used.

    hope you get an answer, i am curious to see if this can be fixed.
    because i do not know what to do if the backup nand does not install.
    so i'll be looking forward to finding out the solution.

    i wonder if you installed priiloader properly. do you have the hacks.ini on the root of your sd? although it wouldn't help if priiloader does not load.

    any way i did find this piece of info
    you first need to fix the files (i know, i know... why are they broken?.. it beats the crap out of me, some bug or something. eitherway, it doesnt matter, because its fixable thanks to BlackAce83 and redia (some dudes on here, who know stuff we dont)


    first you need to download this file

    Wow, thank goodness for the Konami Code. I honestly had no idea what it meant by Konami in the first place. I entered the code, and it did the full NAND restore, I now have a fully functional Wii (I hope) once more. Thanks adambomb and BlackAce!

    a Full Bricked wii can only be fixed by a NAND reprogramming. Full Brick implies that there is nothing displayed as visual output from the wii and no user interaction will change anything or allow any code to run. There tends to be confusion about the difference between a full brick and a semi brick. Even if you can load up bootmii from boot2 then it is not a full brick because it is recoverable without a hardware programmer.
