    Reason:
    I got Homebrew Channel installed and accidentally updated it when I went to the Disc menu (where you start up a game). The Wii updates, then the Black Screen of Death started after that...

    Some methods I did:
    1) Tried the SaveMiiFree with 2 Gamecube controller but nothing happened.
    2) I bought a Blue Tooth Module because I heard it's the main reason of the problem. But I waited for 2weeks and it didn't solve the problem...

    Can anyone tell me if there a way to fix my Wii?. I'm planning to buy a new one, but I want to make sure that there's still a way to fix my Wii. I can't just leave my files on it.

    Thanks

    Was the update you installed out of your region? If it is, you may have bricked the console and without having bootmii installed, you may be screwed.

    It was in my region, the game is called Conduit and updated the Wii when I tried to start it.

    I did downgrade it, 4.1U to 3.2U

    Gambia, The
    Then you got a Stub IOS Brick.

    Savemii will not work.
    The only way to rescue your Wii is Bootmii as Boot2.
    But i can be wrong...

    I was gonna order SaveMii Dongle thanks for the info. But I can't even get to the Menu or to where the "Press A" thing when I start the Wii. It only shows Black Screen completely when I turn it on. I can't use BootMii...

    Sending your Wii to Ninty would be the only way out AFAIK...

    I'll try to send it when I'm not busy (got job + I go to university) so yeah. Just one last question, if I send it to Nintendo will they able to fix it without deleting my files on it and do I have to pay like $200 because it had Homebrew channel?
