Once upon a time, I had a near-launch Wii. After some stupid moves (but not "I'm going to delete the System Menu IOS" stupid), I thought I bricked it. (I now think I could have recovered.) I sent it to United Radio (Nintendo's authorized NY repair facility), convinced I couldn't do anything to repair it. My replacement came with System Menu 3.3 (sans Wii Shop Channel update) and the f01e boot1. I was shocked, extremely happy, and extremely sad, for I could easily hack for homebrew. However, it also meant I am unable to install the beloved BootMii for brick protection.
And they all lived happily ever after.
