    Hi, so today I thought it would be a good idea to get a theme for my Wii, running 4.3E, with MyMenuify and Homebrew. However, I mistakenly installed a 4.3U theme, bricking my Wii. When I took my SD card out to fix this, it was corrupted, my Wii is now bricked with no fix I can find. Can anybody help? I've looked everywhere but to no avail. Please help, I just want to play Mariokart again... :(

    Were you able to install BootMii as boot2 or did you install Priiloader? If not you are likely out of luck unless you can find someone to remove the NAND chip and reprogram it.

    Ouch...
    ...well, on the bright side, Wiis are reasonably cheap these days--probably cheaper than it'd be to pay someone to modify the contents of its NAND. When you get a new one, definitely install BootMii/PriiLoader to avoid having this happen again.
    With one of those, you'd be able to boot to Homebrew Channel and install the correct System Menu and fix the problem, but without them, your Wii has nothing at all whatsoever other than your broken System Menu to boot to. Alas, your Wii is now a paperweight that successfully draws power from your wall. :(

    I suggest reading and paying closer attention to warnings and disclaimers in the future as well.

    Sorry for late reply, but it's okay. I got a new Wii! I'll be more careful this time!

    Wherever there's food. And Nintendo.
    I'm sorry to say but your screwed. The first thing I did once I homebrew my Nintendos was make a NAND backup just in case. Remember that in the future. There're some people who are willing to take apart your Wii for ~$100. Keep searching!

    He got a new Wii.
    I'm willing to bet the new Wii he got was cheaper than $100. :P

    Oh yeah didn't see that. Wiis today are selling for cents on the dollar. How much can I sell a Wii U for in 'Like New' condition?

    Best I can do is suggest looking at Amazon's prices and mentally form a condition/price ratio based on what you see there, and set your price accordingly.

    1-Try to buy a WiiKey on the net
    2-Install it on your Wii
    3-Search for a homebrew launcher disc image on the net
    4-Take a GC pad and dissamble it
    5-Plug it on the 4th port of your Wii
    6-Press all the directional buttons (up,down,left,right) and turn on your Wii pressing them while holding the buttons

    that's a secret combo key on the Wii that will load any disc directly on boot

    you need a modchip to be able to boot a custom disc using that combo key

    once in HBL, use anytitledeleter to delete the USA menu
