    im out of suggestions without looking at the console in person, as everything that should work has been covered.
    I thought the same thing about bootmii working and didn't want to call it a corrupt boot2 for that reason. That being said, boot2 is responsible for loading the system menu IOS which it seems isn't happening. As you suggested, going from boot2 v2 to v4 would wipe bootmii and I don't want to go there just in case someone else has other suggestions.

    I'm still trying to replicate what you did as I can reprogram if I run into the same problem. I just want to see if there's anything else it can possibly be. Unfortunately, your modchip or a savemii isn't going to help out in this situation as Bootmii would be able to do far more for recovery and we've had no luck thus far.

    I'll be posting back soon if I figure out a feasible solution or have anymore suggestions. I would also like to point out that I'm not entirely certain installing boot2 v4 over v2 would take care of the issue as mentioned. Installing over a corruption issue never seems to work, this is usually when the nand formatter would come in and solve the problem with a fresh format and install. However, the formatter leaves your boot2 as is so simply installing over it with v4 might not work. The only certainty is that it will delete Bootmii.

    EDIT: I actually deleted ALL my system channel titles for /0001002 (48414745, 48414741, 48414241, 48414645, 48414641, 48415941, 484144141, 48414341) and even my hidden channels /0001008 and still can't get your results. Leading me to believe this is indeed a boot2 issue or some other hardware issue.

    Is there anything else you could have done that you might be leaving out? If not, I don't really know where to tell you to go from here besides getting boot2 flashed.

    EDIT 2: What happens when you try going to the system menu from Bootmii?

    What happens when you try autobooting a game with your modchip?

    Have you tried removing your modchip to see if it boots? I would just completely remove the disc drive and see what happens.

    This isnt a boot 2 issue.

    Bootmii as boot2 works because boot1 has the trucha bug, which means the boot2 is still (fake) signed.

    "Corrupt" boot2 would mean not correctly signed, therefore not working.

    Also, the very fact its booting shows its not boot2, without the technical information needed to prove it.

    You are barking up the wrong tree.

    It sounds like hardware (wifi, bluetooth or dvd drive) to me.

    We already know it's not BT or wi-fi and I've inquired about the dvd drive and had no response yet. Anyway, I'm not talking about boot2 signature corruption I'm simply saying it seems that boot2 isn't loading the system menu. The fake signature of boot2 makes boot1 bypass doing a proper signature check since it has the trucha bug and therefore the actual value of boot2 is never checked properly against the signature. This means the boot2 code can be corrupt however boot1 will essentially still allow it to run. This is why the ARM code injected into boot2 doesn't cause boot1 to halt boot2 when Bootmii is installed as Boot2.

    @OP - I don't think this will hurt anything and is worth a try if my suggestions from my post above in edit2 still leads to a black screen. This of course won't fix boot2 however it will rule out any possible problems with the loader code bootmii attaches to boot2.

    download this setup of Hackmii_installer_v0.8
    Extract contents to SD card in the exact format they are in
    Insert SD card in Wii and power on
    When Bootmii menu comes up navigate to and choose the SD card logo (this can be done with power button to advance and reset button to select)
    Navigate to bootmini.elf
    Homebrew installer starts
    Reinstall Bootmii as boot2
    Exit installer

    @ Bad_Ad84

    See this on Bootmii boot2

    " BootMii hijacks the boot process before the normal boot2 is run, optionally allowing code to be run directly from the SD Card."

    If Bootmii doesn't hijack AKA without Bootmii folder on SD card, then the normal boot2 executes.

    Just because I cant be bothered to argue with you, don't try to make it look like I don't know how it works.

    by your own admission, bootmii works from SD, therefore corruption on boot2 (even tho its not that) wouldnt matter as the code is loaded from SD. therefore booting the wii from bootmii would work, even with your theory of boot2 being corrupt.

    As I said above, I cant be bothered with this anymore, please continue along which ever line you want.

    When boot2 is corrupt, the Wii does not boot. The drive light goes solid and does not turn off.

    I still don't think you're following me however, I'm finished with going back and forth as well.

    Yes, Krafter is right and I'm sorry.
