I hate to scare you but that's not good. You might have bricked your Wii by installed a bad .WAD -- installing a bad WAD will most definitely brick your Wii. Hopefully you did a backup using BootMii before you did that and backed up your Wii's NAND. Thats the ONLY way you can restore your brick Wii from bad .WAD installs. Here's a few great guides that might help you unbrick your Wii.. good luck!

Why is black ops not playing on my wii?


Maybe your disk is corrupted. Or try to use another loader like NeoGamma or WiiGator. Just Install the wad file with your wad manager. ;)

Wii soft mod guide


Wii SoftMod Guide 3.1 - 4.1
Before we start into the process, you will need an SD card, at most 2gb capacity. This SD card will need to be formatted into FAT32 format.

Note: If you are on Wii System Firware 3.1, 3.3 or 3.4 You need to be connected to the Internet, unless you know the proper steps to upgrade using the Wii System WAD and Firware Updater 4.1 which I may include later.


First, download this file pack. Wii SoftMod 3.1 - 4.1 Pack
Download Readme file here. Wii SoftMod Readme

Step 1. Install The Homebrew Channel & BootMii

1. Put all the files from ‘Wii SoftMod 3.1 - 4.1.rar’ onto the root of the SD Card.
2. Insert the SD card into Wii.
3. Go to Wii Options, then go to Data Management > Channels > SD Card, then you will get a message saying "Load boot.elf?" , select 'Yes' and the Hackmii installer will run. (Goto the Channels first, then insert card or your console might freeze)
4. Install Bootmii as boot2 if you can, if not then install it as an IOS then go back and install the Homebrew Channel.

Step 2. Install Recommended CIOS

1. Go to Homebrew channel and run Trucha Bug Restorer, load IOS36, press 1, read the warnings then select 'downgrade IOS15', select to load IOS from SD card then let it do its job, keep an eye on what it is doing and make sure you select 'load from sd card' when it asks & don't get any errors.
2. Run Trucha Bug Restorer again, this time select to load IOS15 on first screen using dpad left/right, then select the IOS36 menu & install patched (select 'yes' on all 3 patches) IOS36 to slot 36, again using IOS from SD card.
3. Run Trucha Bug Restorer again, load IOS36 and this time select restore IOS15.
4. Run cIOS38 r14 installer, select IOS36 as the one it should use and then select wad install.
5. If your Homebrew Channel flips upside down then continue with the guide and when completed reinstall the homebrew channel.

Step 3. Update System Menu (Only for 3.1, 3.3 or 3.4 Firmware) Note: Internet Connection needed

1. Before you update to 4.1 make sure you have at least 250 blocks free or you will brick, install IOS60-patched first with Wad Manager using IOS249, then run Firmware Updater 4.1.

Step 4. The Final Step

1. Go to the Homebrew Channel and run Wad Manager 1.4 and load IOS249 (Default) and SD card.
2. Instal the following IOS.

* IOS38-64-v3610

* IOS50-64-v4889

* IOS53-64-v5149

* IOS55-64-v5149

How to fix a bricked wii


Q:What is a brick?
A:To brick a Wii is to damage the console beyond repair - as in 'A bricked Wii has all the electronic functionality of a brick'. To put it simply, fully bricked Wii consoles do absolutely nothing. The term is often used in situations where modifying a system's firmware (without necessarily making any alterations to the machine's hardware) has caused it to become inoperable.


Q: I've heard people talking about semi, banner and full bricks, What's the difference?

A: Semi bricks - Usually caused by installing an update from an out of region game. This is when a small error has occurred in the wii's system menu. If your wii is semi bricked you will not be able to access the Wii Settings.

Banner bricks - This is caused when one installs a wad that is corrupted or has an incorrect banner size. It may also be caused by installing Preloader on the wrong system menu. You will know your wii is banner bricked because when you boot your wii and it freezes after the health screen and/or say the system files are corrupted.

Full Bricks - These bricks are usually caused when the System's IOS is corrupted or uninstalled. The wii will either give an opera error or just a black screen at boot.

Once you figure out the type of brick you have then go here and read the faqs on how to fix it:

My wii is showing error 003 "unauthorized device has been detected on d moment i start it! it comes on a black screen


Hi,

Sounds a hacked Wii. When you updated the firmware found the hack and now your Wii may be bricked.
You can try this: While holding down the reset button, turn on the power to the Wii. If a menu comes up then your wii is definitely hacked but it has a brick safety program to get you out of it. If nothing happens then you may be out of luck.



Good luck.

Downgrade wii from 4.0 to 3.4 or lower


The Following Steps assume you have the Homebrew Channel:

STEP 1- Load Wad Manager from the Homebrew Channel (hbc) and install
"iosinstaller.wad"


STEP 2- Load Custom Wad Manager from hbc and install "cios-fix.wad"


STEP 3- Load IOS Downgrader from hbc. Follow all directions until it tells you
that it has been completed. **KEEP IN MIND that this is different from
"cIOS Downgrader"!**

STEP 4- Load cIOS Downgrader from hbc **KEEP IN MIND that this is
different from "IOS Downgrader"!**

-L@@K---> MAKE SURE YOU PICK YOUR CORRECT REGION <---L@@K

-For example: 3.2U= USA/Canada; 3.2E= Europe; 3.2J=Japan

-OPTIONAL: You may choose another system firmware other than 3.2
if you want. My intention is to help guide you to downgrade to 3.2.
Remember that System Menu 3.2 is considered the 'ideal' firmware
for homebrew (if not all) to work properly.


STEP 5- (You may skip this if you wish) At this point you should be on System
Menu 3.2 (or other firmware). You may check your Wii settings to see
for yourself.

~~Again if your NOT in System Menu 3.2 you will not be able to do Step 6~~

STEP 6- Load Starfall from hbc. After reading the discalimer you will be
instructed to press B+1 instead of B+2. Press B+1 to continue on to
the next screen.
-As of version 0.5 Starfall has 8 options/patches to the Wii in which
you can install. The last 3 are the most important ones. Some people
just install everything which is fine.

-STARFALL comes with these options (the ones in red are the important ones):

~Replace healthwarning with back menu
~Region free GC games with video mode patch
~Region free Wii Games
~Region free channels
~No Mainmenu BGM (Background Music)
~Start rescue-menu when Y is held on 1st GC controller (Usefull for
recovering bricks)
~Remove rescue-menu diagnostic disc check
~Skip disc update check

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Complete~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Congratulations you have successfully downgraded your Wii along with
a rescue menu if have accidently bricked your Wii.
