    Theme brick, bootmii boot2 installed

    Hello,I recently bricked my Wii (Theme Brick , MyMenu), but i was able to get it running (kind of) by using Wad Manager and flashing (proper term?) a system menu from NUSD. The only problem is, it would only boot from the SD Card. After following this guide until the "Backup using BootMii", my wii wont boot at all. Not from the SD, or anything. I followed the guide using the "Already Soft-Modded" spoiler. Once i rebooted from HBC, my wii froze and wont boot. i can probably still boot from the sd card using the same setup i had, but i would like someone to guid me through how to get it to boot without the sd, and get everything set up.

    Answers to your questions:

    No, i don't have my previous NAND backup (roommate stole the SD Card)
    Yes, I can turn on from the Wiimote, But it disconnects.
    Yes, I have 2 quick flashes from my disc drive upon "boot" (BootMii is installed as Boot2).
    The light turns GREEN/YELLOW (depending on who your asking) when "turned on".
    No, I don't have a GCC to use frii-whatever-its-called, nor can i buy one.
    Hard-Modding is not an option (no Infectious)
    No, I didn't skip any steps.
    Yes, I'VE SEARCHED FOR HOURS ON END, EVERYWHERE!!! DON'T tell me to use the search button, im not new to forums.
    I've Soft-Modded 1 other Wii and used Ocarina Code Manager. Yes, I'm kind of a noob. I expect to be talked to as such.

    Also, any information to help me understand the programming behind the Wii OS would be helpful, what the hell are the functions of the IOS's, why is theming so dangerous, etc, etc.

    TIA, Austen

    Thank you for the quick response, I followed those instructions from a fresh SD Card, my Wii DOES NOT boot into MMM. Instead, I'm greeted with the health screen, saying "Press A", which boots into the normal Wii OS. Still won't boot without the SD Card.

    ---EDIT---

    Should I retry the same steps through HBC?

    Keep going on the guide to chapter 2, install all the wads per instructions including the modpack, iosupdate, and 4.1 system files. Also extract this to sd card, http://www.mediafire.com/?3u9a9o2rp8bn6yb That should fix your issue, if not we will think about it some more.

    Extract the cb2 file before installing the wads, it should load wiimod when you turn on the wii. Then install all the wads.
