    You kinda voided it by your homebrew tampering.

    See if you can find a way to exchange it that won't involve them having your Wii for any period of time first.

    ...that's the point Midna was trying to make.

    If Nintendo fixes it, you're lucky as hell.

    Also, they can tell by the serial code when it was purchased. Once they discover it's no longer under warranty, they might not fix it anyway.

    That doesn't matter, the serial number will tell them when it was made. Although that doesn't say when it was purchased, they can probably track that. They will also know it was softmodded. You just wasted money on shipping.

    Oh bugger you sent it? Good luck getting it back, or enjoy getting it back with a $200 repair bill attached.

    Didn't 8bit Waluigi had something similar.
    Sending in a DSi with a flashcard?
    Eventually getting the DSi back and the microSD?

    Well you might be lucky then.
    Prepare for the worst and it will feel better afterwards.

    That was before they could check if you had homebrew.

    They check for homebrew by running a "homebrew checker" disc. They can't do that if the wii won't boot.

    I guess it depends on what the OP meant by "corrupt nand". Usually when people say that they are referring to the Your System Files are Corrupt message (or something like that). If that is the case, then they probably can load the disc. I would love to get my hands on one of those discs.

    Btw, if anybody wants more info on the subject (probably the OP), take a look here:

    The OP said "fully bricked."
    The disc isn't interesting. It just looks for fakesigned content, twilight hack, properly signed content that wasn't purchased for the current wii and illegal use of the pink fish disc.

    No offense to the OP, but with no report on the details I won't assume that it is a full brick.

    It may not be interesting to you, but I still would like to have one of those discs.
