  1. Hi Guys,

    I have an old wii which I bought long back, it was an initial release of the Wii. its a Japanese version.
    I had modded it into a US wii using one of the hacks which allowed to change region and language.
    It was pre modified using one of the drive mod chips wiikey which allowed it to boot backups hen I bought it and also made it reign free.
    Now once the homebrew scene exploded with hacks and crack with all sorts of loaders, home-brew loaders etc I soft moded it for playing emulators.

    I had stopped using it in a very long time now and it has been gathering dust. But it had already stoppedsgoing into tge main wii menu. II hav friend who has a 3year old son. so I thought let me put it to use and give it to the little guy. but once I turned it on either it goes into Bootmii menu (installed as boot2) or if I select wii from the selection screen it goes into a black screen.

    I read on GBAtemp that it might be bluetooth issue so I ordered one of the bluetooth modules off AliExpress and changed it myself. it made no difference.
    Then I thought of creating a new Nand using the onschwarzenneger tool from old nand backup. I created one and flashed it it still has made no difference.
    Guys can you please suggest a way of getting around. My friends 3 year old son will love having it.

    Cheers,
    Sid

I restored my old nand using bootmii. Bootmii did not accept the old nand. So i created a new one using ohnesschwarzennger tool. After the flashing goes successfully, i still get the black screen. I check the new name created on the top using flash toolz, it did not report any bad sectors. However when i restore the making of the bad sector is Same as the old nand.
Should i buy wifi card and Try restoring that.

Hey Guys,

Posting after a very longtime. I was able to troubleshoot the problem.
It was the wifi card which was loose and was preventing the wii to boot.
Hope this can help someone.

Cheers,
Sid
