    I soft modded my wii probably 5+ years ago. I have a nand backup from then and I remember installing both Priiloader and bootmii. I had all of my disks copied to an external hard drive and was playing them off there. Everything has worked fine all this time, until now.
    Here's what I did. I installed Dop-Mii because I read I needed to update some IOS for a wad I wanted to install. Anyway, I must have clicked the wrong things because now my Wii will not boot. I've tried disconnecting all the USB devices, I turn the power on and the blue light comes on and then nothing. I can't even get into Priiloader for some reason. It used to work no problem. Holding reset while turning it on just gives the same result. I can turn it on with the wii remote, but with the same results.
    So basically, no matter what I do I just end up with a black screen. I can't get into Priiloader. Am I totally screwed here?

    I don't know. I don't remember how all of this modding worked. I just followed a step-by-step guide years ago to get it working. Is there a way to find out?

    Download the bootmii SD files and put them onto your SD card. If you have bootmii installed as boot2 on your Wii, it should launch the bootmii files on your SD card when you first turn it on.

    You can find the bootmii SD files using ModMii. The folder contains armboot.bin and ppcboot.elf.

    If bootmii is not installed as boot2, SaveMiiFrii can help you out. Do you have a gamecube controller you're willing to take apart?
