Alright firstly id like to apologize if this has already been asked but I'm not gonna look through 440 pages on the subject of "black screen" in "Wii-hacking" forum and searches related to that. OK I'm going to start by telling you about my Wii console. Serial Number: LU338411745 IOS: 4.1u Second of all i have hacked another Wii before and was a cinch an used the same guide as the one below. I followed this simple guide: http://www.pothsprojects.com/viewtopic.php?f=135&t=30 I got to this part "Run IOS Downgrader Open up WAD Manger in home brew again and install the Wii gator backup launcher so you can boot your games from DVD or install the USB loader if you plan on booting games from SD or USB hard drive." BTW i successfully hacked the Wii and was tested and confirmed working, but some home brew did not work like Softchip R99 (which i currently use on my other 4.1u Wii) So i decided to continue the guide so more i just got to the part where it said "Should be all hacked now and.." as soon as i seen those words i immediately tried a burnt disc and it worked and i like i said some home brew didn't work so i continued the guide. So then i tried the IOS Downgrader (in mind that i probably just needed to update and maybe it will start working) and all went well except at the end it said "success! something something...restarting Wii.." Wii-mote's lights went off and the wii was froze for like 3 minutes and just wouldn't restart so i took pressed the power button and turned it on again and all i see is a black screen. So then i just googled like crazy and it said : "Solution #3 Black screen, no connection solution Another solution to this problem is as follows 1. Eject the game disk (if there is one). 2. Unplug the Wii from the back. 3. Wait 1 minute. 4. Plug it back in. 5. Turn it on from the Wii Remote. 6. Press reset if it does not come on. 7. Hold down the power button to shut it off. 8. Turn it on again. " Didn't work...i am all out of ideas and i wish that someone would help me just get the Wii back, i don't care if i have to revert back to 4.1u (non-hacked) i just need it back up and running. Thank you for anyone that took the time to read all of this. Fox.
