    so the wii worked with the old cable, then you bought and tried a new cable, which didn't work and you figured the wii was at fault?

    Is bootmii installed as boot2? (If you don't know: Does bootmii run when you turn on the wii?) If so, it can be unbricked.

    EDIT: Removed one question. He formatted his wii, so it's irrelevant.

    Did you try the old cable before you tried revirginizing it? It sounds like you had the component cables plugged into the wrong place, ie you had the audio red cable plugged into the video orange spot.

    Anyway, it just seems to me that you jumped to extremes after the cable didn't work.

    Anyway: I just remoded a wii and it didn't boot up--turns out that Bootmii didn't like the SD card that was plugged into it, after I removed the SD card it worked fine

    Did you make a nand-backup?

    If you didn't make one. You'll have to compile cboot and install the sys-menu. I'm afraid your mom will find out before your done with that.

    Won't matter if he did. He formatted his wii.

    Formatting changes the NAND key, so even if he has a dump, bootmii will refuse to restore it saying it's from another wii. He could fix that with betwiin and a second dump (from the now-bricked wii), but cboot2 is easier.

    The NAND key cannot be changed. There are no problems restoring a nand backup after formatting.

    I think you two are referring to comex's formatter. You can restore a bootmii dump after using that.

    I was referring to the "Format Wii System Memory" button in the Wii Settings menu...which, the 2 times I tried, rendered the bootmii dump useless.

    I'll test again when I have a wii I can format...which likely won't be for a long time.

    I could do most stupid stuff (actually, all except messing with boot1 and boot2), but it'd be at the expense of my save data and paid channels (have 2 of them, Sonic 2 and Vectorman, from before the 'brew days...).

    And, you have an infectus...
