    Safety and Health I think it's Banner Brick, Please give me a hand

    Hi, I bought my wii this last weekend, searching for backups and stuff I found this post 4.3 Virgin Softmod Guide by Mauifrog (which I would like to say thanks), that teaches how to softmod, I've done it successfully. Everything was working out so was on the step 6 restoring the Indiana PWNS, I found a third thing that showed up on my SD card which I restored too. It showed up as "LU817297075.ALL.rbk" after restoring it, I saw a "system memory" message on the neogamma, and my wii frozed up. I reseted and then, it stuck on the "safety and health" screen. I tried to use the Priiloader and yes it's working. The Bootmii restarts my wii when I try to use it. When I press + and - to go to the Maintenance Menu it also works, but at the Homebrew Channel none of the apps shows up only the bubbles going up, and when I press "HOME" I can see the menu.

    I'm totally new to it kind of a total newbie, can anybody please give me a help? I'm almost screaming and hidding from my little sis who I just gave this wii last week!

    I'm refreshing this page every second waiting for someone. Also would like to thank for this forum to exist!!!


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Already tried to reinstall system menu and WADs, didn't work out

    Please help, I don't know what else I should try, I can't sleep like this @.@ I'm waiting desperately begging for help :S

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I've tried to google it before posting, but I can't find anything like my case, I'm still looking for anything like it but I can't find it... I'm wondering what to do...

    Does your remote sync with your wii or does the wii freeze? It may appear that the wii is frozen if your remote doesn't sync. A good way to test this is to let the wii set at the Health Screen and if it goes to the System Menu after a minute or two then the wii is fine or take a look at your remote and see if the lights just blink (not syncing) or if any of them are on solid. As far as Homebrew not working in Maintenance mode, are you sure that you have applications in the apps folder on your SD card?

    Hey Krafter, thanks for answering. Yes, I do have all of the apps on the SD card, now I think after I reinstalled the system the HBC started working again, also wiimotes are working the lights on them are solid. But the screen is still freezing at the Health Screen I've tried to set at the Health Screen but it doesn't work, it takes like 2 minutes and it makes the same sound as if I pressed "A" then it frozes.

    Edit

    Yesterday I talked to mauifrog about what happened, and he got me some advices

    You should load priiloader, hold reset and boot the wii, then load the HBC. Use any title deleter mod to delete some install channels and savegame files. Don't delete any ios or system title, you probably need to free up some space. Or perhaps that LU817297075.ALL.rbk file had something in it that did bannerbrick your wii.

    LU817297075.ALL.rbk is a backkup of installed titles from a wii, I don't have any idea what could be on it or how you ended up with it.
    But I deleted all of the saved games, and installed channels but it didn't work. Does anybody knows anything else I could try? Is there anyway for me to just backup my wii like it was when I bought? I just bought it and already lost it? By the way as I said it works on the maintenance mode but the "nintendo channel" and "wii shop channel" is all white, the first time I tried the maintenance mode the HBC and all of the channels I installed wasn't working, so I reinstalled everything... Does it mean anything? Man...I just want to have it back so bad, been trying almost everything this night, I'm not going to give up untill I fix it! But I don't know anything about it, please can anybody show me the way out of it? Please....pleaaaassseeeee??

    If it is working in maintenacne mode, it could be a mail brick. Try-
    Download
    Det1re's Mailbox Brick Fix.

    to do so.
    3. From HBC, run FSToolbox r50 and follow the on-screen instructions until you see your
    Wii's file struct (import, meta, shared1, shared2, sys, ticket, title, tmp).
    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.

Whenever I leave the HBC my wii stops responding and goes black screend, gosh I don't know why my wii bricked why it happens to me, I did everything right was taking a lot of care afraid of bricking...When I think everything is right, ta-da -.-' at least I got like some minutes of happiness. BTW do you think is there anything else I should try? i'm not giving up on it!!

    Hey, so I am still trying to fix my wii....Didn't find a way yet, today I didn't sleep trying to research stuff to see what would work with me, but it seems like my problem is not such a big thing like the others I've seen. I'm not sure if the problem is with the System Menu or a bad wad? Either way I didn't install anything I just restored something on the neogama my wii stopped and then all of this happened.

    Here is what is going on with my wii since it happened:

    When it starts I go to the Health screen, press A and then the Health screen turns darker and stuck.

    Maintenance Menu works, when using it every channel works as well and when I come back to the system menu, wii freezes on black screen.

    After I restored the file, the HBC apps varnished. I reinstalled some of them using the priiloader.

    I installed my bootmi but when I load, it says "error booting bootmii IOS".

    Games works.

    Internet Channel Works.

    Wii version is 4.1U.

    When I leave a game and go to the system menu, wii screen goes black screened after the wii animation (part that shows all of those squares disappearing).

    Can I use the backupmii to fix it? Yes, I did backup as I followed the guide to mod it. Will it fix if I use? is there any danger to use it?

    Go into maintenance menu and do a system format.

    or

    Load the wii recovery disk and do the delete all function.

    It is the disk you used to install that rbk file.

    It didn't work either, omg. I don't know what to do now, I'm fried. Is there anything else I should try? Do you think downgrade may fix it? I already downgraded to the 4.1 is it dangerous to downgrade it again?
