    The only ways I have heard of are sending it into nintendo and buying a new one with a broken disc drive and swapping them out. Is there any other ways to fix one? I don't care how far fetched they are or expensive.

    How is it bricked? Because it could be a lot of other things.

    If its a low level brick and you have access to Homebrew or the Wii system menu you should be able to fix it fine. Try re-installing IOS's after making a nand dump (you have bootmii installed as a boot2 replacement or at least preloader right?)

    Oh thats not a good brick. Thats a full on brick, and you have no preloader or bootmii?

    Yeah I think the disc drive is the best fix right now, always have boot2.

    There is no way to fix it, unless you have a mod chip that reads dol files directly from DVD-R's.
    If it doesn't matter how much its gonna cost you to fix it I suggest you buy a new Wii.
    Call nintendo say your Wii bricked while updating, don't say you have cIOS or HBC.
    If they don't know that you have it when they fix it they might not charge you a lot.

    Yeah it likely won't even void your warranty if its still applicable. Next time, boot2 replacement please [​IMG]

    First thing

    Can you get into the recovery menu using savemii or savemiifree?

    If yes you might be able to redo the wii sports resort update

    You would need a modchip installed and the wii sports resort as .ios converted to auto boot

    then burn to disc and it will write the update again back to the wii in recovery mode

    good luck
