    I was doing this http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=146735 and at the last step I installed 4.0 and that was the firmware that I already had so that was dumb of me. I though maybe it had a patch on it or something. But after I did that the wii froze when I tried to go back to the wii menu and so I unplugged it and plugged it back in. When I turned it back on nothing appeared. It was the same blue screen on the TV as if no AV cables were plugged in. I had a pre menu on my wii and I though that was so if anything like this happend I could work it out in that menu, but I guess not. So if there is any way to fix this or if anyone knows more about what exactly happened please tell me.

    Full brickarooni. Never downgrade your system...it's pointless, dangerous, and dumb. No bootmii in boot2 and nand backup? Preloader does you NO good if the system menu is toast. Call the big N and set up your repair options.

    nabster92 says it best on the last post of that thread...

    When you're bricked, Nintendo sees the same black screen of doom that you do. They can't tell what caused it so just say that the power went out while you were updating.

    Just to make sure, should I tell them that I updated to 4.2 and it got bricked for no reason, or say that the power shut off while updating like someone said beforehand?
