    Use Bannerbomb to run Dop-Mii and reinstall the system menu.

    I would then advise installing Bootmii and Priiloader.

    If you need more detailed steps, just ask.

    He can't really run bannerbomb, when the wii doesn't boot up. Does it still autoboot disks is my question?

    I was thinking that untill I saw this guys video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oACM8bgqksg he does a gamecube controller trick where he presses all 4 buttons and then he can update his system with a new game? is this possible if so i might be able to save my wii.

    Seconded, Is there any way for him to make that start-up logo dissappear? If he sends it in to Nintendo as it is, they will surely notice that his wii is modded.

    Well, no harm in trying, can't get much worse. Since you're on3.1 find some disk with an suitable update and hope that it helps.

    Actually, possible to autoboot homebrew discs if he got a modchip?
    Maybe that will fix it.

    updating using savemiifrii should have work.
    what did u do? turn it off in the middle of updating. cause it doesn't need the internet, it updates off the disc

    edit: can u still boot into savemiifrii? if so what firmware does it show now. if not you may have just screwed yourself

    Well, in someways it improved. He can now sent his wii to nintendo without them finding homebrew. But seriously, why the bickering about the internet. Any update would have ran from disc, there is no internet in the savemiifrii solution anywhere. Did you interrupt the update process?

    I have some good news for u,

    since ur wii is old (3.1 SM) it is VERY likely it has a vulnerable boot1 (allowing bootmii as boot2 to be installed) you can use an infectus mod chip to install bootmii @ boot2, then use that to access the HBC to fix your brick. (note, once u do that, u no longer need the chip)

    Unfortunately, I don't know much about infectus, but if you want to send your wii off to my buddy in the states, he can fix it for sure! His email is deadlyfoez@yahoo.com

    If you want to do it yourself, check out some of DeadlyFoez's infectus tutorials that I posted for him.

    edit: the right email address ends in .com, not .ca... oops

    If you had the twilight hack save file already on your Wii, I guess you could have put in Twilight Princess with the autoboot through savemiifrii and ran DOP-Mii to reinstall your system menu. You probably didn't have the hack save file, though, and it doesn't seem to matter now as your system is worse [​IMG]
