    Slight Bricked - 4.2e BootMii and Priloader

    Hi there,

    SO I installed a theme with thememii and it restarted with just a black screen.

    I have a 4.2e softmodded. Bootmii but as IOS
    Wii turns on and off via wii controller.
    I can launch Homebrew, Priiloader and BootMii no problem.
    I can basically still do all the things i used to do in the past but just dont have the system menu anymore.

    I have a NAND backup on the SD and a backup on my laptop.

    When trying to recover the NAND via BootMii I get an error saying BootMii not found and that it is too dangerous to continue and to hit 4 buttons at once, but I dont have a GC (Game cube) controller.

    How do i go about recovering this wii ?
    Could it not be as simple a pulling a wad with 4.2e system menu and installing it via wad manager ? Like in this link 4.2E RVL WiiSystemmenu v482.wad

    I choose to reject reality and substitute it with my own... Yet We stand in our own shadow and wonder why it is so dark!

    You did not read the warnings did you? Either way, you have hope since you can still launch HBC and priiloader. Re-install your system menu and ios.

    Mauifrog (from one of the many theme brick threads):
    You can fix it
    You can fix it with boot2 bootmii
    You can fix it with priiloader
    You can fix it with a modchip or dip patched system ios
    -With dip patched system ios (cioscorp) you can load a recovery disc via savemiifrii
    -With a modchip and a trucha patched system ios70 you can load a recoery disc via savemiifrii
    -with a modchip you can load a game exploit. You can install a game exploit by going to data managment via netflix disc. You can run smash stack pal via disc swap pwns.

    Without a modchip you can update the wii to 4.3u via savemiifrii using a retail ntsc-u game with a 4.3u system update.

    The fix is simple, install system ios and system menu via homebrew or disc update.

    Installed it and all was back to normal.
    would be nice if we could offer at least one custom theme for each version and how to install it.

    I don't know what guide you were following, and am not encouraging you to keep trying especially since you do not have boot2 but here are some links we have:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/wii-custom-s...mymenuify.html
    http://www.wiihacks.com/member-submi...-tutorial.html
    http://www.wiihacks.com/submit-artic...wii-theme.html

    again, I am not recommending that you do it, but if you do please read and proceed with caution. You already know the dangers and dodged one bullet. Boot2 is the only way to be pretty sure you are safe.

    Your signature indicates that you will try again
