    so, i was only opening my wii normally and my remote wouldnt connect to the wii, then i hard reseted it and opened it and it was just showing a black screen. i installed priiloader and bootmii as ios because i cant install it as boot2 on my wii. priiloader was showing up. i launched bootmii and made a restoration of the nand but nothing happened, same problem. i relaunched priiloader and could acces homebrew channel through it and i backed everything and make a syscheck. my wii is on 4.3u. i didnt tryed something like change the menu theme. the most recent thing i did is installing riiconnect24.

    So I recently found out that my wii fell on the ground and it might be the source of the problem. I know the nand is ok. Could it be the otp?

    You mean it fell? No, that wouldn't affect the OTP area of the NAND. It could have cracked or unseated something, though.

    Do you know what components are used by the wii menu and not by homebrews ?

    Something tells me your Bluetooth chip is fried.

    It’s been around 10 years since it happened to me, so I don’t remember much, but as far as I remember, you do get a black screen when it doesn’t work, and not being able to connect your wiimote is probably an indication of that.

    Try replacing that module (it only costs a couple of bucks iirc) and everything should work again (hopefully).

    I’d try reseating the BT module first and maybe check for any other loose connections.

    If you're actually in the system menu it only uses the IOS that goes with that version of the system. For 4.3 it is IOS 80.

    Thanks but my question was really dumb because it is just that when I go directly to hbc it doesn’t check the Bluetooth chip so it doesn’t show a black screen

    I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure if the BT module is bad you cannot do anything with the console at all. You can't even get BootMii to run from boot2.

    Seriously ? Then what’s wrong in the console, it is obviously something in the because a restoration with bootmii didn’t worked

    The OTP is not part of the NAND.

    It is the bluetooth module that is the issue here.

    Sooooo, sorry for the long silence but those stupid tri wing screws take time when you don’t have the proper screwdriver.
    I fixed it. It was only a bad contact of the Bluetooth module in the wii. I simply removed it and inserted it back in. @GreyWolf and @XFlak it means you can acces priiloader and bootmii with priiloader and hbc with priiloader without the Bluetooth module.

    And thank you all for your help.

    One of the Atari ST home computer models had a manufacturing issue that resulted in the computers being shipped with loose chips on the motherboard. They eventually issued an advisory to try twisting the computer to reseat them or if that didn't work, hold it about a foot off the table and drop it. :) Of course, they didn't have optical drives in them.

    I knew it! Bluetooth module :)
    Glad it’s not fried, just needed a reseat.
