    4.2 Softmod Preloader installed (not working) banner brick, Autoboot? HELP!

    First of all I have a 4.2u softmodded wii I used the "Softmod for ANY 4.2 Wii!" . Ok so I have recenetly modded my wii and have been very succesful I've been able to get everything running and working properly and fairly easily too. Until the other day I woke up and turned my wii on and it gave the "system files are corrupted" message BUT I could still boot into priloader, so I wasn't too worried. I started researching online and someone said that I needed to install my system menu so I donwloaded a patched version of ios70 and installed it via wad manager. I rebooted and got some sorta error relating to es_identify verification or something. So I kept looking for a solution and someone said to update my preloader and my hacks.ini so I got the latest version of preloader and got the latest hacks.ini for my system menu and installed them. My es_identity problem was fixed but now I was back where I started. I then read somewhere that I should use nusdownloader to install my system menu and my ios. So i got the system menu v481 and ios70-64-6687 wads and installed them. Soon after I restarted and My preloader would no longer boot and I still had the system files corrupted message. Finally I got my wii to recovery mode where it displays 4.2usa, I've burnt homebrew installer disc and lcud v3 and I patched a wii game with the bootme app to see if I could get it to autoboot and nothing. Those three disk will spin for about a minute and then stop and the 4.2usa is still displayed. BUT if i put an original wii disk in like ssmb,twilight, or tnsmb they will spin up the 4.2usa will dissapear and the disk will continue to spin. But nothing else happens It just sits at the black screen..i've left it that way for hours and nothing has happened. Once when I rebooted it almost most go to the system menu, like it showed the outline of the channels for a split second, and then took me back to system files message. Is there anyway I could repair this without have to get a wiikey? Am I doing something wrong when I burn those disk? (I used the same process I do when I burn GC backups (that work)). SOMEONE PLEEEASEEE HELP thx

    also

    I used the trucha bug restorer allot during the modding process, I'm not sure if have the trucha bug or whatever, I have bootmii installed as an ios, I have preloader installed and it just isn't loading and I also installed cioscorp a while ago. I mean since my wii trys to load my original game discs does that mean my autoboot is working? And do I need to wait til 4.3? or is there a way of hacking an iso to make the wii think it is a higher version? I'm burning wad manager iso right now, HOPEFULLY it will boot. I broke down and ordered a wasabi dx last night, but if my wii is already autobooting I feel like I may have wasted my money...I have modded a few others wiis and I really need to fix this, so that I will have the tools to fix theirs if the problem arises. Thanks for your help already.


    I just burnt two different copies of wad manager to disk, i got the isos from here Autobooting Wad Manager ISO - GBAtemp.net . And my wii will not read them either, It seems that it wont read the burnt discs. But i could play burnt GC games when it was working, but not through the disc channel. Hmmm, this is confusing.

    Well I just figured out what caused the brick...When I downloaded my ios and sys menu from nusdownloader I didn't have a key.bin so it made two bad wads I guess. Hopefully this will help somoene tell me what to do.

    Do you get the system file corrupt error at boot, or does it happen after the health and safety screen?

    Also, who told you to do all this stuff to fix your wii?

    the error happens after health screen. I basically just used different guides in forums like this one that I found using google. I hope this helps

    When at the health screen, hold + and -, then push A. If the system menu boots, do this-

    4. Navigate to shared2/wc24/ and replace any file with the one from SD by pressing PLUS.
    5. Navigate to shared2/wc24/mbox/ and do the same there.
    6. End the app and restart the Wii. You will get a message that your Mail account is broken
    and will be restored.

    Ugh I've tried that aswell. It's beginning to look like I'm going to need a modchip to boot into burnt discs. I mean the only progress I can make at the momemnt is either, the health screen or the recovery mode. Do you think the wasabi dx should do the trick?

    Sorry to here that, it makes things more complicated. The wasabi dx is a good chip, I have one myself. However if you install a chip, it must be preconfigured to autoboot, region free game, and the update blocker should be disabled. The chip seller must configure this for you as you will not be able to configure it on the bricked wii, or you must have access to another wii.

    The next issue is your ability to autoboot custom dvds. I doubt you patched ios70-64-6687 with the trucha bug when you downloaded it with nusd, if this is the case you will be unable to boot any of the custome dvds. No autobooting wadmanager, HBC, nothing like that. The only thing you can do is atempt to fill your nand to max, forcing the wii to send you to data management, where you could load bannerbomb v2(click on bannerbomb and copy) or install indiana pwns. This process is time consuming, but it is probably your only hope and is described in the thread below.

    So with wasabi I should be able to boot into the orginal game discs that I have? Also If I install the chip onto another wii to configure, Do i need to mod the wii first and How do I get to the config menu? I was also curious as to why the wii tries to boot my original discs when I'm in recovery mode, Does that mean autuoboot is enabled already and I just can't play the games? and if so does that mean the wasbi chip will be useless? One more thing, Do I need to take a backed up iso and make it autobootable before the games will autoboot anyway? and if that's the case, will my wii be able to read the discs? ugh as soon as that chips gets here I'll update you..Thanks for all the help.

    Also If I install the chip onto another wii to configure, Do i need to mod the wii first and How do I get to the config menu? No the wii does not need to be softmoded. The config is assessable by pushing eject 3 times.
    I was also curious as to why the wii tries to boot my original discs when I'm in recovery mode, Does that mean autuoboot is enabled already and I just can't play the games? The wii checks the disks to see if they are diag disks (autoboot enabled), but it won't boot them.
    and if so does that mean the wasbi chip will be useless? The chip will autoboot most games, but not all of them. Also since you are on 4.2 it will only play games in your region.
    One more thing, Do I need to take a backed up iso and make it autobootable before the games will autoboot anyway? Possibly, but not always.
    and if that's the case, will my wii be able to read the discs? The wii would read a disk patched to autoboot. This does not require fakesign.
    ugh as soon as that chips gets here I'll update you..Thanks for all the help. Keep me posted, best of luck.

    "I just burnt two different copies of wad manager to disk, i got the isos from here Autobooting Wad Manager ISO - GBAtemp.net"

    Anything you download of GBAtemp will require a autoboot method. When your chip(s) arrive, just download anytitledeleter, WAD Manager or the Universal Unbrick Disc, preferably the 3rd one that way if you ever brick again you''ll already have the disc to fix it.

    regretubally I've already burnt all those dics in an attempt to fix my wii lol, I also have two autoboot patched games and a homebrew installed disc too haha . I was trolling for hours and tryin almost anything that sounded legit, I think my chip will be here today (i ordered it sat and it has three day shipping ups, so hopefully) and then we can start making some progress hopefully.
