    So........I proper bricked the vwii via using the wrong files that were left on the sd card from previous Wii hacking. I have no back up files either. Its dead. I accept that.
    My Wii has been updating fine but now the 5.5.1 update won't update and now games have updates that won't install without the system update. I'm currently on 5.5.0.
    Am I proper screwed.?
    Error 106 - 3206 I think

    AFAIK yes, unless you made a backup of IOSes (an optional step) as for now there is no way to use IOSes from other consoles or from NAND backup. I'm sorry

    you can use vIOS from other people's backups as long as they are clean and are the latest revision iirc.


    this is because of some Wii IOSs installed or vIOSs missing.
    if your vWii can still boot and you can get some of the hack loading exploits working, you might be able to unbrick
    what Wii IOSs did you install?

    Here simple steps to know if you can fix your vWii. (Edit : This Q/A is outdated now that we can access vWii NAND from WiiU mode!)
    Click "reply" to my post and fill the answers.
    Reply to each question in order to find which is the last question you could reply.

    1. Can you still run vWii ?
    - no : sorry, it's a full brick.
    - yes : next question

    2. Can you run HBC?
    - yes : run syscheck and post the result. follow the tutorial in my signature, don't post the wrong file! (Run the latest version, do not run your version. DELETE all your Wii SD card content or use a new SD card only for vWii)
    - no, or not installed : go to next question

    3. Do you have a USBLoader forwarder installed ?
    - USBLoader forwarder installed : good, you can fix it.
    - Other forwarder installed : You still have a chance, tell us which one you have and reply to next question.
    - no : next question

    4. Did you install vWii cIOS or wii cIOS ? and are they still available?
    - no cIOS or IOS236 : You can't fix it.
    - Wii cIOS installed : sorry, you can't do anything.
    - vWii cIOS installed: you still have a chance to fix your semi-brick, go to next question.
    - You don't know if Wii or vWii, or if you have any cIOS installed : we will have to check. go to next question.

    5. Do you have a game disc compatible with vWii exploit?
    - no : You will need one.
    - yes : next question

    6. Is your exploit game still working?
    - no : try another compatible game.
    - yes : you can fix your semi-brick as long as your game disc can be launched (you need the correct requested IOS working, different game use different IOS slot).

    It's a full brick. Vwii black screen and hangs. There were Wii cios on the sd card that I didn't realise. I'm not fussed about the vwii more bothered about updating the Wii u. Is my only hope hoping that one day 5.5.0 will one day be able to spoof higher firmware

    if you cant even enter vwii then you cant fix it sadly, just hope for 5.5.0 kernel someday to spoof to higer versions or iosu to unbrick your vwii until then your screwed.

    there was probably a mod of vIOS 36 (for brawl?) and vIOS58. do you have any other exploit games? (LEGO Indiana Jones, LEGO Star Wars, ect.)

    do you have any fowarder channels installed? (USB GX, Wiiflow)
    if so, can you access them? you might be able to save your vwii
    if you dont have them/cant access, you might have to drop some cash on another exploit game and hope it uses an unmodified vIOS. the lego games go for dirt cheap these days anyways (Lego Star Wars is $10 USD at my local game stop)

    if you're able to access a fowarder to boot homebrew, run this first and check the IOSes. Syscheck HDE

    Are my questions too hard to follow and answer in order?
    we still need to ask the same question, while you could have answered them all at once, and you still are not answering them.
    If you don't listen to users who want to help you, you might break it even more.

    You should answer Cyan's questions so that people can help you correctly, make an effort to be helped even if English might not be your main language.
