    Hello dear Tempers.
    I've got big problems right now - this is really urgent.

    I wanted to softmod the Black Wii (FW 4.1E) of my older sister, which she just got yesterday on christmas eve. Well, everything went well - but - the Games wouldn't load from DVD (hadn't tested HDD yet).
    Well, since I remembered that the IOS60 & 61 could be patched if errors occured, I thought that I should patch them - well...
    From there on the HBC was turned upside down - but I wanted to test out Neogamma again and tried to load mk wii - with an error. It restarted and the Wii wouldn't turn on again. Just a black screen.

    I've read tons of pages on google and gbatemp but havn't found a solution to this problem yet. BootMii would only install as an IOS, so it won't show up on boot and preloader isn't installed.

    If I can't fix it until tomorrow my sisters going to rip my arse into pieces - so is there any way to fix this? Will Nintendo repair the console for free if I say it was DOA? Can I send it back to the retailer? Would the SaveMii Dongle work to restore to 4.2E?


    Yea, I know, a lot of questions to which I don't know a answer - so can you help me? Or should I prepare to die tomorrow? ;_;


    /e: And I do have a NAND-backup of course. Is this of any use anymore? ;_;

    Better take precautions next time [​IMG]

    Is patching IOS60 all you did?
    And if so, how did you patch it?

    So you didn't uninstall IOS60, right? If you just patched it I don't know why that would cause a brick.

    Either way, DVDs probably weren't working on account of that Wii having the D3-2 drive. IOS60 doesn't have anything to do with it.

    That installs the latest IOS 60 I believe, which is now a stub, which means it runs no code. You're fully bricked. You should've patched with DOP IOS. [​IMG]

    Yep, sorry to tell but Installing a Stub system menu IOS will permanently brick the Wii. (Unless you have bootmii as boot2)

    We can't tell this enough, do RESEARCH before using apps you know nothing about
    Cause this is just too bad [​IMG]

    Since I've patched it with DOP IOS 2 months ago at a friends wii - and it ALSO bricked, but could be restored with BootMii - I decided to use the old Team Twiizer patcher .___.

    dop-ios will only brick if you had preloader/priiloader installed before dop-ing. and that is easily fixed by just re-installing preloader/priiloader.

    Preloader usually uses the system menu IOS as well

    1) So is useless in the case of stub IOS

    2) This also causes the effect Old8oy told you about

    preloader wasn't installed. I'm 100% sure of that.

    Sorry for the double posting but I've got one question left:
    What about a SaveMii dongle and a NSMB Wii copy? Would this restore the Wii? ;_;

    Savemii/recovery mode is built into the IOS/System Menu. If the IOS runs no code, which is your situation, which means it does nothing, it won't work. [​IMG]

    So the best thing I could try is to send it back to the retailer as DOA - while hoping that he won't investigate any further? ;_;

    Pretty much. Or go the long route with Betwiin, finding someone who has a similar Wii, etc..

    Well, since I have the original NAND dump from that wii - is there any hope left? ._.

    How would I reflash the NAND?
