    Can you not just re-install your system menu or just update your Wii, I'm guessing its not completely bricked right?

    Well then i guessing its completely bricked, does the savemiifrii recovery menu still work, if it does stick in a Original game with a 3.4 update on it, ex Punchout: while your in the savemiifrii recovery menu and see if it will let your Wii update, if it does it may just fix your Wii

    Do you even know what savemifrii recovery menu is? You never said you removed your system menu, only that you installed a bad CSM, therefore savemiifrii recovery menu might still work, If you not going to take advice or even try to unbrick your wii i'm done helping you. And changing your Nand, Good Luck with that one, I recommend talking to bushing and see if he can help you in that area
    Good Luck

    Heres a thread on it.

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=113515
    and your wii doesn't have to be apart like the video shows either

    put your GC controller in port4

    press and hold all 4 directions at the same time on the GC controller, you will have to take the controller apart to do this now turn on your Wii if it boots to a black screen with the firmware number in the bottom right hand corner thats means you're now in the recovery menu. if it works just try what i posted a few post up.

    and if it doesn't work then you may want to start thinking about different ways to fix your Wii.


    edit: If you do manage to get the recovery menu working, it will show your firmware version in the lower right hand corner just place a game in the Wii at this point, with a Firmware update on it higher than 3.2, Punchout contains 3.4, Now it wont let you know that its doing anything so leave the game for about 10 or 15min, than reset your Wii, it will update and fix your Wii.
    So let me know if you manage to get the savemiifrii recovery menu working

    I'm having the same problem! Except I do have my preloader, when I try to exit to the system menu it says something about consulting the manual, but the text isn't really readable, however whenever I try to do anything from the the preloader it doesn't work out so well, I'll launch wadsmanager to try to install something and it just gives me a bunch of "dump code" i think it calls it, can I use the preloader to do anything? Or should I try this GC controller thing, I have no clue what savemifrii is but anything I will try to help.

    jsaden: You need to reinstall the system menu for your region/version. If you have bootmii and a nand backup, you can use that as well.

    I have neither of those I do'nt believe, I didn't know about bricking my system since I only started doing this like today, very noob of me >< so I didn't install them, I put up a topic at http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=162919 with more information on what happened. How would I reinstall a system menu? And do you know where any mirrors would be? I had a 4.0u before all this
