    Hello, I'd like to get some help to repair my Wii a little.

    Since yesterday, booting it caused a black screen,no Bootmii, I just formatted my SD card and put only Bootmii files on it, which apparently loads it.

    I have a NAND backup of a old system menu, but I'd like to use it only as a last resort. Is there anything I can to do check what causes my Wii to go on a black screen ? Or should I just put that NAND back and start over from it ?

    Any help would be much appreciated, as I'm not really tech-savvy myself

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Did it just brick for no apparent reason? Try turning the console on with the Wiimote. If you can't, you likely need to replace the bluetooth module.

    Also, can you get to HBC from Bootmii?

    launch bootmii, then make a fresh nand dump, then use giantpune's app call nandcheck, or nandbinchecker, or something like that. It was entered into the 2011 homebrew bounty so u can find it there for sure. Then run the nandchecker on your nand dump and it will tell u what's wrong with your current Wii

    anyways, chances are very good your problem can be fixed by reinstalling your system menu and your system menu IOS (make sure its not stubbed). To do that, just launch bootmii, then load the HBC, then launch whatever app u want to use to reinstall those file (ie. MMM, dop-mii, yawmm, etc.). Since u have bootmii @ boot2, there's no risk to doing this either, so if u want u can just try this to see if it fixes the problem before bothering with the nandchecker.

    @techboy, I don't think that's great advice... u realize if a wiimote was synced to a different Wii it won't be able to turn on the original Wii... so there are other explanations for the wiimote not being able to turn on his console other than a fried bluetooth module. Once he recovers (using a GC controller if need be), if he is unable to sync his wiimote from the Wii Menu then there might be some merrit to your fried bluetooth module hypothesis.

    edit: if u can't access the HBC from bootmii, save bootmini.elf to your sd card (included in the hackmii installer download), then launch bootmii, then select the SD card menu, then select bootmini.elf, that will launch the hackmii installer and allow u to reinstall your HBC.

    Thank you for your answers, I'll get on the details :

    I can get on HBC from Bootmii, and I kinda thought it could be that my system menu is corrupted. What should I install as IOSes ? Only the 4.2 one from Modmii ?

    Also, I don't know if it's related, but my Wii used to crash before when I went into the system settings of the Wii.

    Install IOS60v6174 ("60" from ModMii's download page 1) and "4.1X" system menu where X is your region. Note this will uninstall priiloader and any system menu hacks u may have, so you'll want to reinstall that again afterwards

    Phew, it seems to work !

    Thanks for your time, XFlak

    EDIT : On a slight note, I still can't access the Settings without it crashing

    Noted for the future. I was assuming that the remote was functional and hadn't been used elsewhere since bricking.

    Glad to see that it's fixed though [​IMG]

    Okay, I guess I'll try to clean a little all the IOS Pimp My Wii used to install at the time, since my Wii still crashes when I try to access anything from the Home Menu.

    How should I proceed to remove all of the useless ones and keep the essential ?

    Thank you again for your time !
