    Hi everyone,

    I need some help.
    Here it is, short and quick:
    I was having trouble with my Wii, and so as a last resort I updated to 4.2 using the official update, I'd thought I could install my Homebrew again later.
    Thing is during the update my connection died and so the update failed and my Wii switched off. Now when I try to start it up it just gives me a black screen.
    Bootmii wont start even tough I had it on Boot2, I'm assuming that it's been wiped off.

    Am I screwed? Can I still start up SSBB and use the hack to reinstall BootMii and restore my NAND?
    How do I start up a game? Rescue menu?

    Help please!

    its possible (however unlikely), that u may still have priiloader (assuming u had it installed b4)... it depends on whether ur connection died b4 or after installing your new system menu

    if u can't access priilaoder or bootmii, then ur bricked... only solution might be an infectus mod chip

    That'll give you some insight in to why it bricked.

    Do as longtom said, contact official support at Nintendo and they will fix it for you. Just don't mention anything about having it softmodded before the update.

    So is that it?
    I could probably fix it using an Infectus, but I was hoping there'd be a way that didn't involve opening the Wii up.
    Im gonna try overloading the Wiis memory to try and bypass the Wii and get onto data management if possible... i doubt its gonna work, but i might as well try.

    nope, your wii is doneskis

    that IMO is an ultimate brick

    boot2 was overwritten and preloader if installed is gone now

    it probably stubbed your SM IOS and didnt finish installing the IOS70 and SM 4.2

    ouch.

    Nintendo *should* fix since it bricked during an official update

    Ok. I can't access the Recovery Menu...

    Wait, so would Nintendo know I had homebrew on my wii? I mean shouldn't it have gotten all wiped out with the update?

    they can find anything

    your wii is fully bricked.

    and of course you cant access the recovery menu

    your have no SM or SM IOS

    No, your Wii is all f´ed up.

    Just call Nintendo, they´ll replace it.

    Well, BootMii on Boot2 is history for you...

    ninty will exchange your wii even if it's out of warranty because they know the fucked up dozens of wiis with their boot2 update.
