    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?

    What are the symptoms of the brick? What did you do to cause it?

    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.

    Savemii requires a fully intact system menu to function...

    Stop talking about what you don't know. You can hardware flash a NAND backup. Priiloader has nothing to do with it.

    Would savemii work on a fully bricked wii with no boot2? I've read about it and am not sure if it will work.

    No, it wouldn't There is no system menu, hence no Recovery Menu. Disregard that guy's posts.

    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.

    If you do get the NAND to show up, just right click on the title you wish to extract and click "Pack WAD".

    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.

    I did that and I got my channels back. I found the save data backup. Now where are the Mii's backup?

    Here's a thread that explains how to get your Miis back. Did you get all your old channels and savegames onto the new Wii?
