Hello to all, i have a wii that i bricked about a year ago while using Waninko 4.0 updater. I bought another wii after that learning from my mistake but i want know if the bricked one can be fixed. I have the nand backup i made with bootmii but the wii does'nt have a vulnerable boot1, i had bought an infectus 2 chip and i followed the tutorial made by DeadlyFoez with the wires connected using the vias. Everything seemed to be connected find and i had erased the nand chip but after using the chip with the infectus software, xavbox app and bushing amoxiflash, the infectus chip went hot and after that no longer was recognized in windows. Please tell me if the infectus software is really needed to reprogram the chip to nand flasher mode to be used and if using an infectus chip to do a full re-flash with the nand backup i have considering my wii does'nt have a vulnerable boot1. Please tell me if my hopes are futile so i will just throw the wii board into the garbage like the infectus chip and sell the wii drive because it can read dvd-r's unlike the newer wii's. Thanks for any replies offered.
