    was given a wii today. it turns on to black screen only. it is fully bricked. apparently it was modded 2 christmas's ago and has been working fine up until recently when someone decided to update files... now from what i am told it had system menu 4.2 on it. it had startpatch on it an someone tried to update the system menu. not sure why or what was trying to be accomplished by this but apparently it didn't go well. from what i can tell no priilloader installed and no bootmii either. so i am wondering if anyone knows if it is even possible to unbrick it first and second if someone can cause i do not have infectus so i can't.

    Your only change of being able to save this is trying to see if priiloader in installed (unlikely, but hold 'Reset' while powering on the wii), or by trying recovery mode using a savemii or the savemiifrii method (requires a gamecube controller). If both of those fail then the wii is unrecoverable.

    First off, WHY IN THE HOLY MOTHER OF HELL WOULD YOU GET BOOTMII AS AN IOS?
    And keep 3.2?

    Second, holding the reset while powering on is for those who have priiloader.
    Also, you have to modify your GC controller to make SaveMiiFrii work. Derp.

    To do so, you have to take apart the controller and remove the layer under
    the D-pad. Find a tutorial. Put it back together and do the SaveMiiFrii
    again.
