    I was able to brick my wii somehow by loading Original Zelda Tp from Neogamma.
    I booted preloader and entered HBC and started Wad Manager.
    I followed this guide http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAwwUtjZUn4
    Stupid as i am i just installed the system menu updater first and not the one the guy on youtube install first.
    i rebooted my wii and now i have just have a black screen, Disc drive is spinning, i tried the GC crontroller rescue menu but i dont get my firmware version in the corner [​IMG]
    since i cant even get to the rescue menu will it help to install a Modchip?

    Sorry i am bad at explaining, I hope u can help me.

    Well you needed to install the IOS30 first, otherwise the SysMenu doesn't have an IOS to be on, cause the package only has Wad Manager in the apps, so now you installed a SysMenu, so you deleted preloader from your System, and if have an stub IOS30 (if your FW was on 4.0 or 4.1) that means your Wii is fully bricked, strange the guy in the video says this help recover from full bricks, wich is impossible cause there is no turning back from there, sorry fella' send it to Nintendo...!!

    in order to get to the savemiifree you need to mod the gc pad to let you push all 4 buttn s at once

    If your Wii has a vulnerable boot1 it's possible to unbrick it with the infectus(click).

    How do i know if it has a vulnerable boot1?

    EDIT
    I have a Nand Backup for my wii, i used the softmod guide on this forum to make it.
    I have read somewhere that Infectus is not compatible with D2B?
    I think i have D2B - LEH11126727[9]

    Since i have a Nand backup it should work right?

    It depends how you installed bootmii. If you installed it as boot2, you should be able to restore from your nand backup and have your Wii exactly like when you made it.
