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,I was downgrading to firmware 3.4 and no the download wasnt successful and was still on firmware 4.0,I tried the downgrader again and thats when I encountered the system files are corrupt problem.I cant access the Wii at all with the Wiimote,but can access preloader 0.29 with power,reset option,and today I bought a gamecube controller.
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.
Thank for all the info you have given me to try and get my Wii working,unfortunately the info hasn't got my Wii working,I totally give up now and am putting it on Ebay auctions as spares or repair.
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:
lmk how you get on1. 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)
EVERY GUY THAT HELPED ME OUT IN THE #WIIDEF IRC. Thank you guys.
All code is 99% tona, and 99% waninkoko
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.
