    Power down your Wii completely. While you're turning it back on, hold down the reset button. If you have bootmii it should load up, hopefully.

    doesn't wiisports resort have 3.4? i guess you've updated to redowngrade, do re-update from a disk, causing the bad brick from a stub IOS which was warned about via wiicrazy.
    I'm assuming wiisports resort has 3.4 :/ i dunno though.

    I wouldthink that Resort would have 4.0, if not 4.1.

    If you installed Bootmii, have you ever been able to get to the Bootmii menu? You could be using an incompatible card which is giving Bootmii issues starting. It's a long shot but copy the Bootmii files to a different SD card and give it a shot.

    Well it doesn't have 4.1, as that was released to resolve a Wii Sports Resort issue.

    That's preloader, not BootMii.

    Gambia, The
    1. WSR has a update to 3.4
    2. WSR has nothing to do with IOS57
    3. IOS57 didn't brick a Wii
    4. ...

    Edit:
    Sorry, i forgot this:
    If there is no Preloader or hackmii installed, the only way to fix this Wii can be the SafeMiiFrii/SaveMii methode with Modchip if there is a trucha/IOS/cIOS.
    Otherwise Nintendo is the only one who can fix it.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I had 4.0u and then installed Waninkoko's 4.1u last night. Today I put in a retail Resort and updating from the disc, too. Everything still works fine for me.

    you're describing how to get to the preloader menu yo. bootmii should automatically load if he's got the SD card in with the bootmii folder on it.

    You probably updated with a game that's not your region....

    My bad, I did get those mixed up. Probably because I have both installed and normally have an SD card in my Wii. [​IMG]

    I always use WiU1.1 to block any updates before I burn the game. I am on firmware 4.0 so I won't have any issue. Gonna get the WiiMotion+ this week :-)
