    Channel Black Screen

    Hi, every channel (including official / non-official) I go to.. I have black screen.

    I hacked my wii 4.2u using this guide.
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...y-4-2-wii.html

    After, I realized that I cannot play any backup games using DVD+R because of the D3-2 hard drive,
    I tried downgrading from 4.2 to 3.2 using this guide.
    YouTube - How to Downgrade Wii Version 4.2 to 3.2

    While doing that guide, I got stucked on AnyChanger which caused a black screen.
    At that point, none of the channels would work.

    I tried reformatting the Wii using the reformat option in the settings.
    Now, I have no homebrew channels and none of the channels will work.

    Anyone know a fix?

    EDIT: I've browsed this thread
    http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...g-channel.html

    and I do have priiloader still installed. After successfully installing a file, I go back to load installed file and it just stays at a white screen.

    Yes, I realized that.
    I can't re-hack because when I tried to load up the files from the SD card, it goes to a black screen as well.
    I am on system 4.2u LU74.

    What I think I did was, i removed IOS 249 Stub and installed a cIOS 249 (which I believed isn't compatible with 4.2u)
    EDIT: yup, something to do with the IOS 249 which caused this.

    Any other advices?

    NOTE: don't have a NAND backup. didn't think I would mess up my wii because I'm usually good at following directions... (okay maybe not)

    I can't install BOOTMII either because that requires loading from the SD card which causes black screen.

    I don't have homebrew, bootmii, or dvdx.

    Right now, I'm just trying to revert IOS249 back to it's original state which essentially should resolve this black screen issue.

    EDIT: actually I think I may have screwed up other IOS as well.

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

    The following is essentially what I did which caused bk scrn. (same directions in the youtube video)

    [FONT="]Step 2: Removing IOS 249 Stub[/FONT]

    1.Open the HBC and start Wad manager.
    2.Select IOS 250 and press on A.
    3.Select Wii SD slot.
    4.Select IOS 249.wad and press A.
    5.Press A until you see Uninstall Wad and Press A
    6.When done, return then to the HBC.

    Step 3: Installing CIOS 249

    1.In HBC, press the home button of the Wii remote and select Launch Bootmii.
    2.cBoot2 and Waninkoko CIOS Installer will start now.
    3.Select IOS 36 or select not reload IOS and press A.
    4.Accept the conditions by pressing on A.
    5.Select for Network Installation and press on A.
    6.Wait until everything has installed press A and return to the HBC

    Step 4: Downgrading IOS


    1.Rename boot.dol on the SD cart to boot_cios.dol
    2.Rename boot_downgrader.dol to boot.dol
    3.In HBC, press the home button of the Wii remote and select Launch Bootmii.
    4.cBoot2 should start and then IOS Downgrader.
    5.Press on A to start the Downgrade.
    6.Care for that all IOS files are ready and it says Installation complete. OK!
    7.When this is ready, press any button to return to the HBC or system menu.

    Other can confirm this.... but it sounds like the only thing that you got going for you is an internet update..... but that will bring you to 4.3 and you DONT DONT WANT that.... Because you are telling me anything that you try to load from a SD card wether is be hackmii-installer or in priiloader it black screens correct.....

    if not then try to hack it with the hackmii installer........

    Yes, I've tried updating to 4.3 as well.
    It brought up an error 3xxxx (don't remember numbers)

    "Because you are telling me anything that you try to load from a SD card wether is be hackmii-installer or in priiloader it black screens correct....."
    Yes, that's correct.

    if not then try to hack it with the hackmii installer........
    Again, for the 3rd time or something.. I cannot load that up because that requires using the SD card which just black screens.

    Do Section 2 of THIS guide. If steps 1-3 don't work then do step 4-a. It should fix the problem of blackscreen when launching hackmii or any other apps for that matter.

    The advice is not to do what you just attempted above. Nice you ask AFTER trying to do this.
