To boot into priiloader, hold down reset button when powering up.

You should be able to use bootmii to redo hack/restore and start afresh. Best to have bootmii on sd card just in case it was not boot2.

Yes m8 i made a backup of the nand when i first $acked it, it was still on the card so i pluged in game cube controler ran the restore option but it didn,t work still getting same error, so i formatted the wii it starts up now but wont load any games copy or original, i have tried letterbomb again and wii crashes on the hackmii txt page where it tells you to wait for couple of mins.

Not sure what to do now open to advise. Hope it can be fixed her kids will be upset if its bricked.

sounds fk'd m8,

all you can do is download the latest version of modmii and try again, it doesn't use letterbomb anymore (uses it own similer hack)

if it is goosed then second hand wii's are going for round 50quid in gamestation and those sort of places...

Have you tried putting in a retal disc with the 4.3 update on it?
