    Howdy everyone!

    Half bricked wii, 4.2U with I use a gc pad to turn it on..
    If I insert a SD Card, it power up to the heath screen sometimes.
    I already got modmii... the bannerbomb doesn't work. Sometimes it freezes while loading sd card.
    Also hangs when trying to access wii settings.

    Any help?
    Thank you!

    Did you by any chance install prii/preloader ?? There is a hack that enables recovery mode.
    Boot up your Wii and hold reset to see if you can get into the preloader menu.

    Then disable the hack.

    Sounds like a region brick. Is it a US wii?

    no bootmii, no priiloader.
    I managed to boot it and loaded the bannerbomb from the sd using the sd menu.
    Then, it hangs to black screen

    Any thoughts?
    I only have the board with working bluetooh and wifi modules... no drive attached to it so launching a disc isn't a option.

    Used a CBOOT2 file that mauifrog sent me with syscheck.. and got a report.

    You say you used modmii. What happenend, when you where using the guide ?
    What steps did you take, and where did it go wrong.

    Maybe you could post the text file that Modmii generated.

    Put it between spoiler tags please.

    Next time it loads up, follow my guide below, downgrade it to 4.1 in the process.

    mauifrog: Thank you for appearing again [​IMG]
    Thing is.. it hangs i most applications..
    I'll read your guide.

    Edit -
    Part 1- Launch Hackmii Installer - It crashes!

    The only thing that seens to work is MMM
    and it asks to run from ios 249...
    I can load MMM and launch the hackmii installer?

    Download MMM-58-61_Hackmii_0.8_CB2.zip and extract the file to your sd card
    Also have the private folder from the BB2 pack on your sd card
    Delete sd:\startup.elf
    Extract startup.zip to sd:\
    Extract the elf file from bootmii booter to sd:\ and rename the elf file to boot.elf
    Rename sd:\boot.dol to load.dol
    Extract \wad\1IOS236.wad from the anywii app pack in chapter 2 to sd:\wad
    Also extract the shop channel update wad from chapter 2 to sd:\wad

    Run bannerbomb, bootmii booter should load which should load cboot2 loading MMM
    Go to Wad Manager and install 1IOS236.wad
    If the wad does not install, UNINSTALL the shop channel wad, then try to install 1IOS236.wad again. Then reload MMM to ios236, install 58 and 61 then run hackmii.

    ATD will not work with your ios250, probably a base57.

    No dvd drive attached?
    Just asking this to someone who knows, but I don't think the channels/etc work without a dvd drive in the wii.

    Unless you use sneek/uneek.
    Right? I don't remember.

    You can just run the hackmii installer now that you have ios58. Then do the rest.

    This has been my experience...missing/dead drive = erratic/no operation. My friend has a launch-day that won't even load the SM if the drive is missing.

    Looks like mauifrog managed to unbrick it w/o a drive though...maybe some boards don't need drives.

    Now I tried the hackmii installer from "MMM-58-61_Hackmii_0.8_BB2.zip" no joy.

    Hangs at Launching app

    Do you have any magic package? [​IMG]

    Just load hackmii from MMM like my guide says. Hopefully when you reinstall your SM 4.1 your issue will resolve. Also, you can't jump from guide to guide, pick one and stick with it. I only have limited experience with modmii, so I don't know what your issue is with it, it should also work.
