Hello, i've full bricked my wii, no audio, video, nothing, SaveMiiFrii also not working, it's a nice piece of a brick.
I've read in this forum it's possible to flash the nand with an infectus modchip.
I have 0 ability on soldering but i'm a really goood student when it comes to electronic devices.
my wii is not LU64+, bricked it downgrading from 4.1 to 3.3 with cioscorp installed, it fucked up the system
No bootmii2 installed, no preloader, nothing.
Is it possible to fix it with infectus?
Thanks!

I believe you should be able to reprogram the nand with the infectus, but i'm not 100 percent on that.

Im guessing that GCN is a gamecube control, i've tryed but nothing, wii is dead it won't boot up recovery menu.
My last chance is to buy a new motherboard or try with infectus.
it's hard to use infectus? will it work?

How did you exactly brick your Wii? By installing a stubbed IOS? If so, you can't do software-related things. You'll need to mess with the console's hardware. I believe Infectus is hard to use if you're a n00b like me, as you need to have some knowledge to actually use a NAND reprogrammer, like the bushing's one (and have your console keys in hand, too); but if you do it right, I'm pretty sure you can unbrick your Wii.

then it's time to test infectus i guess. i'm a really good learner, and i would be glad to learn all this, i dont have any console keys on my hand, i've got nothing.
where can i get those keys?
Withouth them, can i still use infectus?

Oh... Then, I'm sorry to say you're f*cked up, meh, D:... The only way to obtain those console keys easily is by using Xyzzy, a homebrew application made by bushing. Without them, you can't reprogram (or better to say, flash) the NAND...

If you had ever used bootmii and done a nand dump you would have the key dump. Apparently bootmii appends the keys to the end of every nand dump.

I read somewhere on this forum that i can still flash the nand, and get those keys in my computer.

Maybe if you re-flash the NAND to install BootMii in determinate blocks and make a NAND backup with it, you can manage to get that keys.bin on the SD root, just like this thread stipulates. At this point, I'm not being very helpful, though.
