    Wii System Menu loads, channels and games don't

    Hello everyone,

    Recently, I updated my Wii's IOS to IOS61 using DOP IOS mod.

    Since then, whenever I try getting into the homebrew channel (or any other channel or game on the Wii menu), I get a black screen, I hear a noise from my Wii like it's reading from disc (even though there is no disc inserted) and I get kicked back to the system menu.

    When I try loading a game via disc (like Twilight Princess or Brawl), the same thing happens, except I don't get kicked back to the system menu.

    I have system 3.2u firmware installed. If you need any other specs from me, I will be glad to provide them to the best of my ability.

    Is my Wii r0x0red for good, or is there any way I can recover from this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    *moved to the bricked section*

    This is a known issue with DOP-IOS.

    Standby for Streamlinehd, Bad_Ad84 or mauifrog for suggestions.

    Simple Fix

    Load Dop-Mii with BB1 and run a system check. After the system check completes the Wii will be repaired.


    Edit: This is a BB2 pack so just swap the private folder in this pack with the private folder from BB1. Dop-Mii_v13_CB2_BB2.zip

    Also a link for BB1 just in case http://bannerbomb.qoid.us/index.old.php

    Suggestion:

    You should have a private4.1 and private4.2 folder, then a batch file which deletes private folder (if it exists) and then asks you which system menu version you are on, if 4.1 or below it copies private4.1 to private etc

    you get the idea, I have same setup on my diagnostic sd card, but instead of a menu i have 2 batch files that just do it (for speed)

    Good idea. I was just thinking I should get my files more organized.

    in my private4.1 and private4.2 folders, i have the return of the jodi saves too, as those are co exist with both versions of BB.

    Im running back and forth fixing all those wiis at the moment, but when i get chance i will paste the contents of my batch files, tho im sure you are capable of figuring it out.

    i also have it copy bootmii_cb2 to bootmii, as when i run hackmii installer, sometimes i forget to switch to my bootmii sd card (with bootmii + nand formatter) and end up overwriting cb2, so this copies it back for me too

    You guys are going to kill me.

    After I posted this topic, I was so damn impatient about getting this fixed that I updated my Wii to 4.3u, thinking it would get rid of the corrupt IOSs. It didn't.

    The Wii still boots, but I still can't load any games or channels. I tried streamlinehd's solution by loading BB v1 with DOP-Mii, but nothing happened, so I tried loading BB for 4.2 w/ DOP-Mii on my SD card and tried to load it via BB, but I got the error 004 message.

    Is there still a way I can load DOP-Mii to fix the files? I have Brawl, so I can use the SmashStack to get the homebrew on.

    Is there anything I can do at this point. I won't touch the damn thing until I hear some replies so I don't make things worse.

    I really appreciate you guys looking into my problem and it's a shame that due to my impatience, I made things more complicated (or probably unsolvable).

    Thanks for your time.

    Man..... I hate to tell you but you messed up. You just made things much harder to fix. Didn't you see post #3 before the update?

    The only hope now is if you Bootmii/Boot2 or have your nand flashed via a programmer with a backup.

    Streamline's solution will not work on 4.3

    You just did exactly what you shouldnt have done.

    Gah, I installed BootMii as an IOS and I can't find my NAND backup anywhere (I know that I did it, though, because I distinctly remember the little blocks on the screen being filled up during the backup).

    I'm a little bummed out, but I'm not too terribly heartbroken about it. I've been using Homebrew for a year or two and I mostly just used the Wii as a media center.

    Anyway, I thank you guys for taking the time to respond to my plight and doing your best to help me out. Maybe I'll learn to be a little more patient.

    Take care!
