    I bricked my wii. =[ but there is hope =]
    the way i or should i say a wad bricked my wii.ok so i installed a bad wad i feel so stupid i mean a bad wad oh my gosh. O well here is my situation.... i tried the save mii frii but that didnt work. this isnt a semi-brick to and my wii boots normally to boot screen then i press A..... the music goes on.... then black screen i dint even see the menu and music stops. I tried to open priiloader but it doesnt work =[. so i have 1 last chance of unbricking my wii i have it all planned out =]. yay! but i need a mod chip to auto boot a disk so i can boot wad manager but i was wondering does the WiiKey Fusion work with the auto boot function and all i need is a YES and il order it and program it on my friend's wii =]
    also some details to my wii is its softmodded via return of the jodi hack and have the D2C (v1)ship set and have darkcorp install it was all working perfectly all i need to know is that does the WiiKey Fusion work with auto boot and im ready to go thank you in advance =]

    Hold your horses there, Damoder. Before you go off buying Wiikey Fusions, there are things you must know.

    The Brick fixing discs will only work if certain criteria are met. There is a list of them here, and they all have requirements listed. I doubt you'll be able to work without the Recovery Menu (SaveMiiFrii), but there's no harm in trying.

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=123708

    For the record, what you have is called a Banner Brick. These are pretty hard to fix, but they can be fixed given the right software. Unfortunately, it seems that you don't have a functioning Priiloader installed, so that rules that one out. Do you have Bootmii installed? More importantly, what firmware is the Wii on?

    If you have Bootmii installed, you may be able to recover it without using a Modchip. If you don't have Bootmii, you'll have to get an autobooting modchip, but rather, instead of going for Wiikey Fusion, you should go for a Drivekey as per this tutorial:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii...-brick-fixing-savemiifrii-autoboot-disks.html

    If you read one of the posts, you can use the Wii Netflix disc to unbrick your wii with a modchip.

    But before you go buying modchips, do you have Bootmii installed? Bootmii is your only hope for fixing this wii without buying a modchip...

    You cannot use Bootmii as an IOS to unbrick a Wii. Unless you can get Priiloader/Preloader to work by some miracle, your only option would be to get an autobooting modchip, such as the Drivekey, and autoboot some recovery discs, which will only work if you have the Trucha Bug installed into your IOS. If there is no Trucha Bug present, you could try to use the Netflix Disc method I mentioned earlier to install a game exploit file to use to access WAD Manager.

    Other than that, you'll have to resort to either using Hardware to fix the NAND (Dangerously hard), replacing the Motherboard part of the Wii (Easy but expensive), or doing nothing.

    I'm afraid I don't know about that....Give it a try if you want, but I don't know if it will work. To use one of the homebrew autoboot discs though, you will need Trucha Bug present in your IOS, I think it's IOS 36 that needs Trucha Bug, without it these discs will not boot.

    I doubt that WiiBootme will work on it's own without a modchip, but give it a try. You'll need to be able to activate the recovery menu in order to do this, so you'll need to know how to perform Savemiifrii.

    Many of the experts here said you were screwed. I'm glad you fixed your own issue.
