partial brick, no NAND backup but can access priiloader/hbc
so i got this wii offa craigslist strictly to stream VIA netflix and load VIA usb. turned it on, it boots to wiiflow. grr. hit the home key and it boots to the homebrew channel (yay).
hit home key again, boot to sys menu. health and warning screen comes up, but the press A to continue does not. power off wii, power on while holding reset. no priiloader. crap. wiiflow comes up again, hit home key to boot to HBC.
followed mauifrog's guide for softmodding any wii. started from step 2 (since i couldnt get step 1 to work because i couldnt access the system menu) and finished the guide.
now getting a 'the system files are corrupted' message. can still access priiloader, hbc, etc etc. but sys menu will not load.
was able to boot MMM and install ios 58 and 61. loaded hackmii installer no problem, was able to install bootmii as boot2 and reinstalled the homebrew channel. am NOT able to make a NAND backup. screen goes black and freezes.
currently, am sitting on a fresh mod following mauifrog's softmod any wii guide. have completed ALL steps except making a nand backup. have tried switching my sys menu to 4.2 VIA modmii's wizard but no dice, same error message.
attempted to use this guide to fix since i still have access to priiloader:
however, when i get to the step to install ios 60, i choose SD (cant connect VIA wifi since i cant access sys menu) and it keeps repeating the option. if i choose USB, i get an error -1 that it cannot locate the file despite me copying it to USB:/wad and USB:/. the same for SD, i have copied the files to sd:\wad and sd:\ but i dont even get an error code, just prompted to select my source.
im at my wits end. i can still play backups VIA usb since i can load cfg usbloader from the homebrew channel. i can still watch and stream movies with wiimc. just cannot access the darn system menu!
