    After almost a year of personal change I have decided to finally start offering my wii repair service once again.

    I will charge $30 for my service, so I can compete with the cost of a used console or Nintendo's repair cost. You must pay shipping both ways. It is cheapest using USPS's flat rate priority mail service at a little over $10 per way.

    I accept CASH ONLY. I've had problems with money orders and checks in the past.

    I generally mail the wii back out the next business day, and many times mail it back out the same day.

    REQUIRED: Either you include a proper NAND dump on an SD card for me to use, or your wii be bootmii/boot2 compatible.

    You can check if the serial number of your wii may fall under the bootmi/boot2 compatible list here-> http://gbatemp.net/threads/bootmii-boot2-wii-serial-numbers.205180/

    I have done this service for well over 200 people without a single complaint. Everyone in this forum knows me well.

    Send me a PM if you need my service. I will not do this service for anyone outside of the United States bc shipping cost is too high to make it worth your while.

    NOTE: DO NOT ask questions about your bricked wii in here. Also, do not send me PM's asking questions about your partially bricked wii and asking me for advice on how YOU can fix it. These forums are for asking those questions. Sending me a PM is strictly for if you need to send your wii to me.

    Just my opinion but I'd trust you to work on my Wii. :yaysp:

    Quick question - you have any fixes for Wii that has artifacts? I want to reflow it with a heat gun but I'm don't want to waste my time.

    You could try a heatgun, although you have to be careful to heat the board evenly otherwise it will flex and totally break it.

    Foez, you should really consider expanding into 3ds nand modding. Its easier and there's a big demand for it given the 3ds is a current gen system. There's only 1 guy based in the US doing it right now so it'd be a big growth opportunity for your business. Sry for off-topic, won't say anything more about it. Glad your back.

    Hello- I'm trying to figure out if my Wii is bricked or not. I guess how do I know? This is the error message I'm getting when trying to load games off my external?

    Error: cIOS249rev18, cIOS222v4, cIOS223v4, cIOS224v5 or higher required for starting games from a FAT partition! Upgrade IOS249 or choose a different IOS.

    I appreciate your help!

    Yeah I'm familiar with heatgunning PS3's and 360's ;) Just wondering if you had any other ideas.

    No, your Wii is not bricked. Install the latest version of your usb loader and the latest version of d2x cIOS and you should be fine.
