    Exclamation Need Help With My Bricked Wii, please.

    My Wii is running 4.0U and is fully bricked (once past preloader, i get a message about the system files being corrupted). A tutorial on how to get this up and running again (in the simplest terms possible) would be great. Thanks!
    EDIT: I forgot to mention that prealoader and bootmii are working. I also have nand, although I'm confused as far as how to use it.

    So it's not actually fully bricked at all then.

    Anything where you can get preloader is not full bricked.

    What you have is probably a preloader brick which has been discissed on here, oooh, must be coming close to a thousand times now.

    Using wad manager ..

    Install IOS60patched IOS60patched.rar

    And then

    Install Sys Menu 4.0U 4.0U-System menu-NTSC-U-v417.wad

    You should have your Wii back but you will then need to reinstall Preloader.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Thank you! But one question, and I know this will sound stupid and that's because I am, but how do I install the system menu wad and the ios rar?

    I told you already

    Using wad manager ..
    If you don't know how to use Wad manager then what on Earth are you doing hacking your Wii?

    My brother hacked it before he went off to college, and I don't really know too much about it. I'm gonna start doing some research to find out what exactly he did...

    WAD manager is really straightforward so you shouldn't have too much trouble. Ensure you install in the order I illusstrated.

    Thank you- my Wii was successfully ubricked. However, when I tried to install IOS60patched.rar I got this:
    "[+] Installing WAD, please wait...
    >> Reading WAD data... ERROR! (ret=-1)"
    What do I do?

    Also, after doing this, I could no longer play burned discs. Does this mean that I have to go through the process of loading the necessary programs to do so again?
