I accidentally bricked my Wii. I don’t have bootmii/boot2 or preluder installed but I do have a backup NAND with the key. Could you flash it? Any other alternatives?

Uninstalled System Menu. I thought there is a wad that could create a channel of the menu and the EULA. Nothing works. It will run (the disk spins). That's it. I do have a backup NAND.

Okay, you're in an unrecoverable brick situation (in terms of software fixes). I don't flash NAND the hardware way but DeadlyFoez sells it as a service, so PM him for details.

I just purchased a Wii system. Hopefully I can transfer my backup NAND to this new one and it will work. Does anybody know if I will lose anything out of this (purchased games, friend codes saves, etc.)?

You can't reflash your NAND to a new Wii unfortunately, since the keys won't match. But you can use ShowMiiNand/ShowMiiWads to extract titles you want to keep from your old NAND and install them on the new Wii.

My NAND is not showing up on ShowMiiNand program. I extracted my NAND with folders such as import, meta, shared1, sys, ticket, title, etc.. Now how would I go about putting the titles on the Wii (making them into wads)? I have games, saves, miis on the nand. Is there any way that I can get those components on the Wii?

By the way; My new Wii system came in today.

Got to Options > Change NAND backup path. Make sure the path you choose is the folder which contains all those folders (import shared etc.). If that doesn't work try the unextracted NAND backup path.
