Alternate Method to Brick Fixing Fix various types of bricks in 4 simple steps! If you have encountered a brick, and you do not have BootMii installed as Boot2, this is the guide for you. If the brick was the result of a corrupt IOS, resulting in a less common type of full brick, you most likely will not be able to enter Recovery Mode, meaning this method will not work. Most Wii un-bricking guides suggest that when a Wii system menu becomes bricked, and BootMii is not installed as boot2, there are only two ways to unbrick the Wii: either send it to Nintendo for repair, or install a drive chip and use SaveMiiFrii to boot a Wii Recovery disc ISO. But I successfully used a different method, in which I used to fix a banner bricked Wii system menu, where the system menu would not load at all (basically the equivalent of a full brick). This is a method I like to call "Wiimmortality" because it could potentially fix any type of brick as long as you can access Recovery Mode in only a few simple steps. It is not guaranteed that this method will work, but only in rare cases will you not be able to access what this method requires. All you need to use this method are these items: Gamecube controller SD card Homebrew Loader (such as StackSmash, Twilight Hack, Indiana Pwns, etc.) STEPS 1. Make sure your SD card is prepared to load a Homebrew installer. You will need to use the Hombrew Loader you used to originally install the Homebrew Channel on your Wii, so it is necessary to make sure that ALL files used to boot the Hombrew Loader that you have on your NAND are on your SD card. This includes boot.elf and a specific file placed in /private/wii/app/ or /private/wii/ that is also needed to boot the Homebrew Loader. 2. Enter Recovery Mode on your Wii. This can be done quite simply. Just plug a GC controller into port 4 and as you power on your Wii, repeatedly press all directions on the D-Pad (this does not require you to disassemble the controller by any means), and your Wii firmware should be displayed at the bottom right corner of the screen. This may take a few attempts to perform correctly, but it is not entirely difficult to do. It is possible, however, but rare, that you may not be able to access Recovery Mode depending on the type of brick. 3. Boot your Homebrew Loader. Simply insert the game that your Homebrew Loader requires and your SD card (make sure this is done after you enter Recovery Mode), and your Wii should launch the game. Now simply follow the instructions that correspond with your Homebrew Loader so that you can launch the Homebrew installer. 4. Undo the action that bricked your Wii. You have two options here: Go ahead and reinstall BootMii as boot2 to prevent other future bricks (if possible), or just choose exit from the Homebrew installer, and you will be returned to the Homebrew Channel. From here you can install Preloader/Priiloader if you cannot install BootMii as boot2 to prevent future bricks. Once you've done that, undo the action performed that caused your Wii to brick. For example, if you accidentally installed a corrupted WAD, you can now uninstall it. Or you can load BootMii (now from the Homebrew Channel, of course ) and enter the second options screen and choose the second icon, which can recover from the brick. After all steps are completed, your Wii is officially unbricked!
