Hi all , hope someone could point out anything that may help me repair a kinda bricked wii. Let me briefly explain the wii's history. It was hacked by a friend a good 2 yrs back im not fully sure how , but after one of my kids ran a game possible a mario based game , i guess it tried to update itself with the fimware on the game disc and the wii became unstable , occasionally booting to the wii menu , sometimes freezing on the health and safety screen sometimes no loading at all. I tried all i could think and to cut a long story short it sat in a drawer until now. Since the kids have a new wii and all is well in the unmodded world , now i discover modmii and think on trying to play with the old wii to rescue it somehow. Steps taken so far : Loaded bootmii onto SD and inserted into Wii and it boots to bootmii , from there i used the info page to determine the system details. namely : bootmii v1.2 , Stub v1.1 Mini v0.3 : Console ID 02318733 : Sysmenu : 4.2E boot1b boot2V4 : NAND : 76.9% taking the sysmenu info i ran Modmii and chose everything relative to the sysmenu of 4.2 , ignoring for now any enhancements/themes/channels etc , just wanting to peove it will work. So i copy the contents of the COPY TO SD folder to the sd card insert in the Wii First step in the guide is to run the bootmini.elf i do as it says ............................. nothing happens , the only difference is now i cannot scroll through the files or step back to the bootmii options basically its froze and i have to reboot the wii. So i cannot get step 1 of my guide processed , is my Wii to ill to repair , or do i need to do something else. I would appriciate any answers in kinda laymans terms as i read these forums regular and people do tend to assume people understand at times... Hope someone can help... thanks Kind Regards P.
