    It's finally here.

    RECOVERMII V0.7B
    RecoverMii is basically a guide to help anyone unbrick their Wii. Since it is noob-friendly, newbies will recover their Wii easily by using this app. The main point is to let people understand what is technically going on and never brick their Wii again. The thing I mean by “noob-friendly” is the language of the app is soft, so even a person that never had a Wii will understand what is going on with Wii.

    I decided to host the app in SourceForge instead of GitHub, so you can get it here.

    WEBSITE(Mirror Host):
    https://jit0ku.wixsite.com/repo/files
    CHANGELOG:
    V0.5 Early Beta - Beta Release
    V0.7 Early Beta - Layout Change, More User Friendly and some bug fixes
    Unreleased:
    V0.8 Beta - Beta Release 3
    V1.0 - Release V1.2
    Release V2.0 - Final Release, Won’t mess with it anymore

    Idea and website is really good, app is also good but it can be better. I believe it’s because you just wanted to make people see layout, my opinion is layout is really user friendly(I hope modmii also had layout like this it would be much much better) but there are some missing info. You should separate full brick into 2 types: iOS and NAND, that will help noobs more. Also, like you said in the recent article, the language is very noobish meaning noobs will understand it just by reading. I’m waiting for release now

    It’s not a Wii app. It’s something like modmii, but based on bricks. It describes the types of bricks, how it happened and what to do. It’s beta so you don’t really have to learn info..

    Ah, that sounds useful. I just thought it would be a good idea to put some more info so people don't have to blindly download and run it to find out what it is.

    Basically a recipe. For example think you are a newbie and you bricked your Wii. You don’t know it is named brick and how you did it. You download the app and look for what happened to your Wii, like does it show a opera error message or a black screen. You find what happened, then learn the type of the brick and read what to do. App is in beta version and it’s open to editing and opinions.

    Thanks, I’ll try to improve the app, it’s currently in beta but I’ll add so much stuff. Opinions are key for me right now, so I can think what can I add or edit with layout etc.. your reply means so much to me.

    Good idea to add Recovery Mode, lots of newbie panic about their Wii because they don’t have priiloader and bootmii..

    This should be in sticky threads after the final version releases. The idea is amazing, you have to edit some stuff in beta and release the final version then so many noobs will be saved.
