Fully bricked my newly bought wii when trying to upgrade to 4.1 after softmoding. Maybe I should have never done this! Anyways I was following the sticky article and successfully installed hbc, hackmii, patched ios36 (using TBR) and installed cIOS38r14. Everything looked fine until trying to upgrade to 4.0/4.1 following this guide: http://webrewwii.blogspot.com/2009/04/syst...stallation.html Actually even 3.x->4.0 went through. However after I did 4.0->4.1 and it said ready to restart (after all the successful installs), it gave me a blank screen. Remote cannot sync (blinks) and I can do nothing but power it off by holding the power key. I cannot get any system menu. The questions are: 1. I've made NAND backup before doing this. but I guess I cannot use it as I don't get any menu at all? 2. Is it true that after updrading I lost the preloader? I tried power on while pressing reset but nothing happened. 3. savemiifrii video on youtube looks encouraging and I will try that after get the controller. But even after it succeed, what else should I do after entering the recover mode? 4. Will savemii work? What's the best solution here? Thanks for your advnice in advance!
