    You could try to extract CB2_BB_System-Settings-Replace_MOD.zip to your sd:\
    Then copy the ntsc or pal setting.txt to sd:\
    Boot the wii and replace the setting.txt.

    This may not work, Bad-Ad84 has mentioned it fails following nand formatting, but it is worth a quick try.

    OP- did you uninstall your system menu via wad, then reinstall it? That is said to remove your setting.txt.

    Edit: Forgot, you need cios installed first.
    You would need to first extract MMM_CB2.zip to sd:\
    IOS249 v17.wad to sd:\wad
    Boot the wii and select wad manager
    press 1 to install all wads, 2 wads install
    Now you have cios.

    I will try the new formatter. Can you give me a brief explanation how to use the settings.txt editor?

    Thanks

    Sometimes, I can get it to work. What I have found is to do a restore through bootmii of my original nand. Then when I run the formatter, it asks to load the settings.txt file. I click A and it seems to work. It just hangs on the wad installation.

    I'm going out to purchase a brand new SD card and see what happens.

    "A new sd card" is no good, you need "A new compatible sd card"

    Not all SD cards are created equally.

    regarding setting editor, just leave everything default except for your serial and region, save it to the root of your sd card.

    however, with that nand formatter, you need a gamecube pad as it doesnt accept input from the front buttons.

    Yes I am going to get a Sandisk Wii SD card. They have them at my WalMart store.

    Regarding the serial number in the settings file, I going to change the area to USA, Serno will change to LU and then my serial, change video to NTSC and game to US. I will save this as setting.txt to the root of the SD card. Then I will reformat the NAND as explained in the tutorial. When I try to write back the NAND, I will use my GC controller to select the setting.txt file from the SD card (option B).

    I'll post back with results as soon as I have them.

    So here is where I am:

    I got all of the wad's to install except for IOS60 - the wii hung on that one. However, I can now access the Wad Manager 1.5 using the download provided by Krank on page 2 of this thread. The Wad Manager appears and it says Press A to continue or B to restart.

    Problem is the wiimote will not connect right now and the game cube controller will not work either. So I'm not touching this until I get some ideas. I don't want to go back where I was!! LOL

    The wii still will not boot on it's own.

    So what do I do next?

    UPDATE: I was mistaken. The file that Krank supplied actually loads the MMM and I can control it via the GC controller. So now that I am into the MMM, can I put the patched IOS60 file in the wad folder and load it from the MMM?

    THanks!

    UPDATE 2: I have been looking through the MMM so I can give as much information to those who have helped me. Here is what I see as important:

    In the IOS manager, it shows the installed IOS's as IOS17, IOS31, IOS36, and IOS60
    In the System Menu: it shows v4.1 and says "select a cyctem menu and install it via online connection". I'm assuming this needs to be installed before the wii can boot on it's own.

    Under Wii System Information:
    System Menu v(null) on IOS0
    Console Region - ?
    WiiConnect - ON

    I think it is connected to the router, as I can see the IP in the list. I'm afraid to shut the Wii off and make sure the IP I'm looking at is actually the Wii!

    Hope these settings can help someone show me what I need to do now. My initial thought is to install the SystemMenu-NTSCU-v449.wad file, but I will wait til someone confirms my suspicion.

    you need to install ios60, system menu 4.1 relies on it. the nand formatter pack should of had the ios's and a few other wads (which was the system menu, eula and few others)

    if you have run the nand formatter, it wont be connected to your router - all your connection settings are gone.

    I think you setting.txt is still messed up, MMM should be able to detect your region.

    Does that mean it's bricked or do I have to mod it again?

    It is very strange!

    THanks again for the exceptional help I've received here!
    Same as one of my friends experience he backed up a dozen games to his HDD and next time he powered his wii he has BSOD
