    Use reset and power buttons to navigate the BootMii menu. Try booting System Menu. If that doesn't work, try booting HBC. If that works, run dop-Mii from there and reinstall the System Menu and its IOS. If HBC doesn't work, try and restore a NAND dump.

    Download the latest Hackmii Installer, extract the bootmini.elf to your sd card root, start bootmii, navigate to the sd card icon, select the bootmini.elf and start it, now you should be in the hackmii installer. Reinstall the homebrew channel, press exit and you should be in the homebrew channel.

    If that doesn't work, your only option may be to use Comex's NAND Formatter. Take a new NAND dump first though, so you may be able to recover your savegames and miis. And don't try that till you're SURE there are no other options. BTW, you never said how you bricked your Wii. That might help us help you fix it.

    Huh? I don't understand: You dropped your Wii? On the floor? If so, software probably ain't gonna fix that, you're looking at a hardware issue. Can you power on the Wii with the remote?

    Ask someone qualified to open wii and make lucky fix by reconnecting things inside.

    Sounds like Bluetooth module may be broken. That stops video output working on System Menu and all IOS based stuff e.g. HBC. I didn't know that BootMii still worked with a broken bluetooth module, but I guess it must be low-level enough to work without it.

    So you can start the homebrew channel now, but you still can't start the system menu?

    Let me get this straight, the wii wasn't working and you, on your frustration, dropped it on the floor on purpose???... if thats the case then you might have raped it, more than bricked, get a new one and next time relax b4 touching your wii...

    Do You want to buy something without even knowing if it's broken?
    Where is LOL button?
    Just look closely at the picture and tell how BT module is connected to rest of wii.
    Open wii, reconnect, fixed.
