    hi,
    my friend fully bricked his wii, he done something to his system menu.
    he has no preloader or bootmii installed on it.

    i was reading about savemii and its is a branch d problem.
    http://savemii.net/troubleshooting.html

    i think he needs to rebuild his nand fs and what is a nand flash programmer. how is he supposed to install bootmii on a fully bricked wii?


    Would a infectus modchip help him in any way as one site has suggested this?

    Should he buy a new wii?

    Can some 1 please help me?

    thanks in advance.

    It'd be a lot easier for him to simply send the thing to Nintendo.

    It definitely would not. Infectus chips have 21 soder points, it'd be a bitch to remove and then add it again. Plus it's a pretty old chip which means it out of warranty. From what I've read, I believe Infectus supports Auto-boot, since I've also read that it's been confirmed that Argon does.

    Try an auto-boot disc with wad-manager or something. Maybe somebody else could help with that since I don't really know much about it.

    He doesn't have an Infectus already, which is why it'd be easier for him to send it in.

    If it's bricked hard enough they probably won't be able to tell.

    Tell them it bricked doing the 4.2 update.
