    Are you referring to having HBC instantly start up once you turn on the Wii, and not the Wii Menu? Or getting into Priiloader and backing up your NAND on bootmii?

    I'm guessing your Wii is bricked...
    Did you install bootmii as a boot2?

    No it is not possible unless you had installed Priiloader with it.
    In the rare case you can try getting into your system and attempt holding reset. If that doesn't work then your probably screwed.


    Here are my solutions;

    Buy a new Wii (Probably one of the worst solutions, and most risky due to newer wii's being updated on Ver 4.2 by default, along with the System Menu Update which makes you unable to mod your Wii with Homebrew

    Repair, or replace the Wii NAND completely by hand, and replace it with a previous NAND on an older wii (Buy the right NAND for your region. NTSC = USA, JAP = Japan, PAL = Europe, KOR = Korea.) Make sure you have the right system update you want. And the right region.

    Use SaveMii Dongle, orrr ModChip. Both are bad methods due to them no longer being made. (They go for 100's of dollars now.)

    Have Nintendo repair it. Again bad choice.

    Don't get discouraged by this. Also I saw a few modded wii's on EBay. I think you may want to check that out. But if saving money is your deal. Thats cool, just buy a Wii NAND off of EBay. - Actually cross that. The Wii NAND is more expensive than buying a modded wii. So just go with that.

    You can do so here. But keep in mind this will happen once you give it to them to repair it.

    - The console will be updated to latest firmware. And console mods will be removed. Console issues may occur once you receive it, will have menu update installed making it impossible to mod the wii in the future. (Some exploits may work)

    - The console may be impossible to fix depending on what you installed

    - It costs more money than all methods above (ranging from $450 fix - $1000)

    - May take initially longer to fix your Wii, instead of all methods above.


    Proceed with caution in the attempt you start modding a new wii.
    How did your Wii brick anyway?

    Oh. Yeah WADS are normally the most dangerous files for Nintendo modding since it has to mess with a lot of stuff to fully work properly. (Including game disc slot.) I normally avoid WADS completely if I am required to install them using Multi WAD Manager or something like that.

    Just for reference of people trying to figure out to prevent this issue I will put it here anyway.

    Have Priiloader installed as soon as you get the HBC (Home Brew Channel)
    Do not install WADs. Ever unless required to. They can cause a lot of issues with the Wii.
    Have bootmii installed.
    The only exception when messing with WAD's is using save game manager GX. Doing so will load certain games onto your Wii legally as long as you have at least one save file for the game.
    Only put WADS on root of the SD Card if optional. (Ex: A hack/hash folder.ini)
    Never install WAD's if you do not know which cIOS, or IOS they may use

    If you would have had Priiloader installed it could have been fixed easily, by simply running HBC threw Priiloader going into Multi Mod Manager, and then uninstalling the WAD completely. But since you did not you will have to use the solutions above to fix your Wii.


    In the rare case (again just want to point out) If you believe you installed Priiloader turn on the wii imdetly and hold reset, or turn the Wii off then hold reset, or wait until the menu screen comes up then hold reset.


    Its likely the WAD may have altered the System Menu causing it to malfunction, not load correctly. Or by installing a custom theme.

    Do you have a gamecube controller.If yes try inserting the gc controller into the 4th slot after turning on the wii,Then click all D-pad controls UP,LEFT,
    RIGHT,DOWN at the same time.I have not tried this method but i have heard many of them unbricking their wii using this method.

    If you do this you get into the recovery mode.If you get in you are lucky.

    That might work depending on how bad the brick is. If it gets you into recovery mode, your golden.

    You can also do this with just a Wii remote. Turn on the Wii, and hold down these buttons on the Wii Remote once the warning screen is present.

    +, -, A

    If that works, and if you are lucky you can go into Homebrew, and recover your Wii.

    @TheTurkGamer have you tried this method yet?

    Not with a Wii Remote. You could attempt using another method which is using a GC Controller, or Wii Classic Controller. However I doubt it will work due to your Wii is in a full brick, and unrecoverable.

    The best method would be buying a Original White Wii, and modding it (this time play things smart though.) And make sure the Wii Menu Update is not on the Wii. If it doesn't have that you are golden.

    You could even buy a modded Wii from someone. Just be careful who you buy it from.

    You could use the SaveMii DongleChip but since your Wii is in a full brick. It would be impossible to recover from.

    I'm not to sure if your able to acsess maitence mode with a Wii Classic Controller. What controller were you orginally trying to use when you were trying to get in maitence mode.

    If it's a banner brick you can use the following recovery methods,
    1. Use Priiloader (Not possible since its not installed.)
    2. If Bootmii is boot2 your able to activate it by holding reset I believe, or eject, this will take you to the Bootmii menu.

    The SaveMii Dongle method may work, this may allow your Wii to autoboot forcibly into a menu screen, allowing you to get into Bootmii IF Bootmii was previously installed!
