    I have bootMii installed and my wii just got a brick/semi brick

    It's not turning on, and my bootmii won't show up.

    It did this early today, and I reinstalled the System Menu, but it worked fine

    Am I screwed?

    If you can't get BootMii to show up and you don't have Preloader installed, you are screwed. Your bootmii.ini file is set not to autoboot?

    Try unplugging the powerpack for a while... do you see red/orange/green LEDs at all?

    I did this and shot air in the back and a metric fuckton of dust shot out.

    Now it turns on fine, except BootMii turns on every time. Is this supposed to happen?

    Well before it would only come up after the Wii completely powered down (to red LED)

    Now it comes up everytime - should I be worried?

    Oh, I don't know why it would only come up when you completely powered down. There is no reason to worry though. Just do what I said.

    Anddddd now it's doing it again.

    I just unplug it for a minute then wait, but eventually after I keep trying it works.

    It does this every morning, did I do something wrong?

    It may be an SD card compatibility issue. My SD card doesn't seem to be compatible with BootMii fully. BootMii starts up every 50 or so times I start up my Wii.
