    As you may or may not know, my Wii got bricked.
    2 wonderful people replied on my previous thread, and I can't thank them enough..
    But what they recommended me to do was pointless.
    I thought that my Wii bricked for no solid reason, but apparently my younger brother was the cause of it. (I think so at least)
    My younger sister told me that he held the power button down for 5-7 seconds to turn the Wii off, which I refer to as the "Emergency Technique" (E.T for short). But that alone doesn't seem like a problem, right? Well... Either VbaGX or xSnes9GX caused this to happen, my younger brother used the E.T to turn the console off.
    And if you've read my previous thread, I haven't installed BootMii/Boot2 nor Riivolution.
    And from what I've researched, NAND Formatting is the only way to get my Wii back.
    However, I am new to BootMii/Boot2 and I do NOT know how to install it.
    I've seen people having BootMii/Boot2 immediately when they turn on their console.
    Is there ANY way I can have the same setup, so I can access the NAND thing?
    Thanks in advance!

    What happens when you power the Wii on? you have a few recovery options listed here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Brick#Brick_Recovery

    Do you have a NAND backup and know your NAND keys? If yes then you can use a NAND programmer to restore the NAND backup via hardware and the Wii should work again.

    If Preloader is installed then you could maybe make it boot something else depending on the brick and go from there.

    It just gives me a black screen.
    And I softmodded my Wii, so, I don't have a Modchip.
    I don't have Preloader installed.
    Am I doomed?

    Probably unfortunately, if you have a NAND backup you could restore that with a NAND Programmer (requires soldering to the Wii’s motherboard), it’s also possible the Bluetooth module inside the Wii could have failed which can present the same symptoms.

    Without BootMii or possibly Preloader installed I can’t suggest anything else you could do to recover unfortunately.

    I really need to say this.
    Did you try savemiifrii,

    If you have not installed or changed the system menu.Just try it.(You need a gamecube controller).

    I have heard it works but i have not tried it.
