    what a sticky situation :(
    as far as i know the only way to use your backup is through bootmii. what ever you got yourself in sucks alot

    you should tell us what you did before you bricked your wii y'know too. and do you recall what you have bootmii installed as?

    thats all i can do, someone with more knowledge will hopefully drop by

    Holding down the reset button while booting up your wii only triggers priiloader if you have it installed, which you said you don't. If you have bootmii installed as boot2 you should be able to access bootmii by putting your "bootmii" folder on the root of your SD card. Also, if you've backed up your nand, you can put your nand.bin and keys.bin on your SD root and revert to a previous nand state.

    Does your bootmii folder contain armboot.bin, bootmii.ini and ppcboot.elf? If so, you might be out of options :(

    Your Wii cannot acces bootmii, it has'nt got a vulnerable boot2
    You can only acces bootmii via priiloader or Homebrew channel.

    You are screwed.

    No you should have installed priiloader before messing with themes. Your wii is too new to have bootmii at boot2 so you didn't have it at boot2. You had it as IOS and that is pretty much useless if you don't have priiloader.

    As Hielkenator said you are screwed.

    Will not work, he has an incompatible dvd drive for a modchip to work.
    Without priiloader or bootmii@boot2 there's no simple way.
    Except swapping Nandchips....wich would require a second wii as a donor.
    Or look into a nand programmer

    So basicly you will have to get a new Wii.
    Sorry.

    No. Your Wii cannot be saved the regular way.

    You need to replace the dvd drive and install a modchip, or just install a wode. Then you can fix it.

    Cioscorp can be intalled from the HBC. It only works with modchip compatible dvd drives.
