    Ok so I just installed everything and everything worked fine!!
    Then I installed the new wiiware game, kindred spirits and now my wii freezes at the startup where it says press A

    I have Bootmii but only installed as an ISO.. I was so STUPID not installing preloader.. please help me! It's not my wii and I feel messed up!! Just that one game ruined it. I made sure it was the same region, and I got it where I got all my other wiiware games but no go.

    what system menu are you on cause a system menu reinstall might work like with mymenugify or soft mii just make sure your .app is the right one
    i had kind of the same prob but it wasnt from a wiiware install but it worked for me [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    sounds like you installed a corrupted wad

    depending on your system menu version, you might be able to save it still

    Check this thread. It may be your saviour.

    Ultimately you want to get into HBC and uninstall the WAD with Wad Manager.

    The link above is for an Bootmii Autoboot Forwarder Disc.

    I've got it downloaded and burned, do I have to do something or will it autoboot? Cause it doesn't seem to be doing anything =[

    You need BootMii already installed as an IOS for it to work.

    EDIT: Oh you already do. My bad [​IMG]

    I don't know if you'll be able to boot it since you didn't use preloader to disable the diagnostic disc check. You'll need a chip for it to run in that case. And your IOS50 has to have been trucha patched.

    So I've been reading a modchip is the only solution.. any recommendations? Keep in mind I only want one so I can unbrick this wii! I don't need a good one with all the options, just one that will help me fix the wii and that's it!

    My IOS50 is not truchapatched.. that may be the problem.

    i have the same issue with the same corrupted .wad for kindred spirits wiiware. I am running 4.1u. I had bootmii installed as an iso not as boot2. No preloader/starfall. Can that bootmi recovery disc work for me? If so what do i do?

    1. burn iso onto dvd.
    2. startup wii?

    or do i need a safemii/gc controller hack. If so how do I make my gc controller into a savemii. I also dont know if i had trucha installed. I am assuming no since my wii was 3.4 when i brought it home last month and i went to 4.1u.

    guys if you can't install bootmii as a boot 2 why wouldn't you install preloader. do you guys read anything before you softmod your wii? if it is still under warranty call up nintendo.

    That disc requires a few things before it will work, from the sounds of it you may not be able to use it. Good Luck getting your wii fixed.

    Would SaveMii be useful in azaa or cseru1s case?
    It could be a good way to go if you want to avoid Nintendo.

    Sorry for the bump! I just still have one last question!
    I ordered a Wasabi Zero, will that be able to run the Nintendo Recovery disk by using the SaveMiiFrii method?

    Or am I totally screwed and should just send it back to Nintendo

    Not the chip you ordered, but I've had 100% success on full-bricks with the Infectus chip.
