    you need to get into the hbc and use ciosdowngrader to downgrade your wii to a different sys menu - try 3.2, 3.4 is useless!

    Hi Dogeggs

    Thanks for the reply,I can access hbc through preloader and get to the Ciosdowngrader,and get to the part where it says press button A to accept install,but unfortunately the wiimote dont work,when I sync the wiimote with the wii all I keep getting is 4 flashing blue lights.I bought a compatible wii game pad which lets me scroll down certain options but when I press button A on the gamepad to start ciosdowngrader nothing happens.Just wondering if the controller has to be an original gamecube pad.

    Thanks

    sounds like your wii is pretty fooked - have you tried anyregion changer? the pad doesnt have to be an original....give it a go and see how far you get...

    This fix comes from a guy called darkjesse and uses a GC controller to reinstall your sys menu and your setting.txt that got corrupted and is causing your wiimotes to not work. You need to download this rar and a PAL Sys menu 4 wad and follow these instructions:

    1. Put a setting.txt on the root of your SD card.
    2. Use gc_wadmanager to reinstall your system menu (with GC controls)
    3. Run gc_settings fix and (use a GC controller) and fix your setting.txt file.
    4. Hopefully you are unbricked.

    Greetings Darkmystery (Jesse)

    Shoutings too:
    EVERY GUY THAT HELPED ME OUT IN THE #WIIDEF IRC. Thank you guys.
    All code is 99% tona, and 99% waninkoko
    lmk how you get on

    Hi Dogeggs,
    A thousand thanks to you and Darkmystery for this.Solved all my problems and now Wii is fully operational again.You can't believe how thrilled I am at this moment in time and once again a thousand thanks you are really a genius.I am really glad I joined this forum and with people like urself,a lot of bricked wii's will be operating in no time.When I re-installed the system menu it was version 4.0,also it asked for system update on the disc channel,I declined at 1st,then it wouldnt play proper Wii games,so I went ahead with the update.It stated that if you have a modded Wii that this update was likely to stop the soft mod working.Anyhows after I updated the Disc Channel was playing normal Wii games and the back up launcher which is Gamma 0.3 was also working and playing copied games as well.

    Thanks
