    You installed the wrong version of ios58 dude. I hope you learned a lesson about being more careful and following the correct instructions. It looks like you got lucky this time, the guy in that other thread found a solution. But next time you don't follow instructions, you might brick something.

    To directly answer the title, you did a semi-brick.

    Yea, that seems to be what they call this, a semi-brick. But that is a stupid term. It's like saying semi-pregnant. The correct term should be quasi-bricked.

    Full brick = not useable.
    Semi-brick = limited use.

    I saw another thread where you try to use pimp my wii.... NEVER USE THAT.
    It's for Wii, not for WiiU vWii !

    Read the sticky thread in the hacking section of the forum, there's one explaining what you can do and what you MUST NOT do.

    Do not follow Wii softmod guide on vWii
    Do not follow vWii softmod guide on Wii
    Wii and vWii are not the same!

    I see you posting all over the place asking people to help you fix your vwii, can you try to stick to this thread that you made? You haven't even really said what all you did. Did you get any cIOSes installed to 236, 249 or 250? I saw somewhere you posted that you couldn't figure out how the IndianaPwns hack works so how did you attempt to hack to begin with?

    Why "semi" ? He seems to not be able to enter vWii at all...

    Well on a vWii, all bricks might as well be full bricks. There is zero brick protection.

    However, he doesn't have a real brick at all. He can access Wii mode just fine. He just can't run any channels because he ran Brick My Wii. If he re-installs the vWii IOS's from a NAND backup (which he hopefully made), then everything should run fine.

    OK, I thought when he was saying he wasn't able to launch any channel that he didn't see them.
    But if he isn't able to launch the game channel, how would he launch the game that could get him out of here ?

    Hopefully not every vIOS was replaced. He'll just have to try some. If nothing else works, he can just wait for an additional vWii update, if one ever comes.
