    Question Partial brick from 4.2u theme

    I installed the Oldschoolnintendo theme with mymenuify, (I know the risk, I've researched the subject for months. ) and everything but one thing works ok. When I go to settings, it freezes on a black screen with the menu BGM still playing.

    What I need to know is if there's any way I can fix this without having to do a NAND restoration via Bootmii, (last resort imo).

    Look at the semi bricked theme. You can reinstall your original system menu or if you have boot2 do a NAND restore. If you don't have boot2 then you should kick yourself for messing with themes.

    Well I have Priiloader and the latest version of Bootmii as ios. It will let me do a nand restore if I input the Konami code, but I'll try the reinstall of the original first. Everything but settings works so it's not a HUGE emergency atm. I may end up waiting even for a firmware update that actually has new features unlike 4.3.

    get your system menu .app using thememii

    put the app in your theme folder...load priiloader from there into hombrew channel load mymenu and install the .app...its easier then installing system menu and loosing priiloader

    MAKE SURE THE .APP IS FOR YOUR REGION AND YOUR SYSTEM MENU

    And since you only have bootmii as an IOS I would forget all about themes from now on... One day you might not be able to restore and then it's...

    Hence why themes should be avoided. We had a staff get bricked from a bad theme and couldn't restore with priiloader. They had bootmii as boot2 though so they were able to mess around with that kinda stuff. If you only have it as an IOS and get bricked you're pretty screwed if you lose priiloader like they did.

    Theoretically you can't, but it has happened. Hence why they're so dangerous.

    Well I updated the HBC last night but due to the channel id change to make it 4.3 friendly, Priiloader no longer recognizes it as being installed. Any fix for that?

    With that in mind, my next question would be is there any way I can further mod my system to GET Bootmii as boot2? I got the Wii last christmas and it has a D3-2 disk drive if that matters. Because of that, I'm also considering the purchase of a Wode jukebox.
