    Cannot get into System Menu

    I just recently installed the newest Homebrew, no problems there. Installed Bootmii as IOS and boot2 for safety, like I always do (wanted to say this for clarification). Anyways, I install 2 new WADs, that's all fine and dandy. I go back to HBC and I select go back to System Menu... I here the chimes but I get a black screen instead of the System Menu. I turned off my Wii, and turned it on again, same thing: I hear the chimes, but no System Menu. I want to boot automatically into HBC so I can delete the WADs I installed, and so on and so forth. I don't have Preloader installed if anyone who sees this is wondering.

    So can some help me please?

    Moved to the Bricked section. Sounds like a bad wad; no Priiloader is a problem, as you've screwed yourself out of a path to HBC to remove the offending wad. As you had boot2 BootMii, got a NAND backup before you got yourself into this mess?

    If you have bootmii boot2 you can just load HBC from bootmii and load wad manager. Or load via cboot2 if needed. What wads did you install? (Do not name them if they are game wads, only if they are system wads...piracy is not supported here).
    Damn I suck!!!!

    I do have a NAND backup, I just need to load it so I can start back where I was before this whole thing happened.

    Again, you do not need to restore your nand (yet). Let me know if you can't load HBC from bootmii and get to wad manager. I will link you a cboot2 wad manager pack.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    I think the one might of been bad. Like I said, I do have a NAND backup, I just need to know how to access the Bootmii menu before the "Please Read Before Playing" screen when you normally start up the Wii. I'm pretty knowledgeable in this stuff, but it's been forever and I kinda forgot how to do what.

    EDIT: I think I need to change the bootmii.ini to access HBC before system menu. How do I go about doing that?

    Backup and format your Sd card. Extract this to SD root CB2_BB_Wad-Manager-1.4.zip

    Sd in the wii, boot the wii, wad manager starts. Uninstall the bad wads.

    Thanks! I appreciate this so much, you have no idea. I'm formatting as we speak.

    So I don't run into this issue again, how would I go about installing preloader... In all honesty I was kinda iffy on it because I heard it was unstable for some. I'm on a 4.2 system if that matters.

    Update: Deleted them, had to switch out SD cards to get to the WAD file to uninstall the both (since I don't know which one) and the Wii is running smoothly again. Appreciate your help Krank.
