    Unhappy System files are corrupted // Priiloader not starting

    Ok, so I bought a Wii one week ago, it came with system menu 4.1E and I managed to get homebrew, backup loaders and priiloader set up on it. (I had to install bootmii as an IOS as its one of the newer wii's and didnt have the option to set it as boot2)

    A few days ago I started getting the message "The system files are corrupted.. please refer to manual. etc. etc." Fortunately I was still able to boot in to priiloader and get to hbc from there. Since everything could still be run fine I left it for a few days.

    Today I used NUS Auto Downloader to download system menu 4.1E again (making sure to select the correct region-EUR) and placed it on the SD card. I used WAD manager to install it and when I reset I still got the corrupted error, only this time I am also not able to load priiloader by holding the reset button


    I tried using Universal Unbrick Disc v4 but the wii doesnt load the DVD.. as I write this I just realised its probably as I'm running an LU64+ / LEH250+ Wii


    Am I screwed??
    (Thanks for reading)

    If you have a nand backup, you can reprogram the nand with an external programmer.

    without a backup, you sound screwed.

    reinstalling the system menu removed priloader.

    You would have been better asking here BEFORE you killed it.

    Or me as that exactly what I do...

    Infectus will cost you about 30 and you need soldering experience. Or I do the repair for about the same amount using a professional programmer (i.e. about a 1000).

    I also have an infectus for sale that Ive not needed for awhile (see above as for why) if you want to do it yourself.

    always handy to know

    Its one of those more specialised things that not many people have experience of. Luckily ive never had to try it

    Do you get the corrupted error at boot, or after the health and safety screen? If you get to the health and safety screen, try holding + and - then press A while holding + and -. See if your wii will boot into maintenance mod.

    Did you follow the 3.1-4.1 guide on this site? Installing ios60patched?

    Was your wii able to read backup dvds?

    No, it won't load up maintenance mode and I've got a D3-2 drive so it wont read backup dvd's either.

    I've put the repair on hold as I went out and bought a second-hand wii which allows bootmii as boot2 so I'll be happy with that one for a while.

    I'll look at either getting infectus or some other chip at a later date to un-brick my original wii.


    Thanks all for the suggestions

    If you live in US, I can probably fix it for you.
