I got it working again thanks a ton. One more question though, do I need to reinstall CIOS after doing this? because I deleted some IOS over 200 with the "How to remove softmods and make your Wii a virgin" guide. So do you recommend me to follow the "New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii" guide?
Format you sd card and extract bootmii-photo-channel.zip
Boot the wii

Your cios38-r14 is fine, you could update to r17. I you use ios222 or ios223, they are stubbed.
can this work on a fully bricked wii? i instaled priiloader but i dont think i installed a nand
MauiFrog - thanks for your speedy repsonse - but looking elsewhere (actually re-reading this entire thread) there is a suggestion to install IOS35 and the corresponding system Menu.
i did that through WadManager1.4 and it started working again!!
i have decided to re-softmod the console - using the same instructions again - as it seems that reapplying the ios/cios/sysmenus would help me out.
the instructions i used http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
should be used by any softmodder - after all - if i hadn't used these, i would not have been able to get the system back.
i am going to re-mod using the same instructions - once the wife lets me have the TV!!
How do i get the latest IOS version installed without bricking AGAIN!!
Although working 0 please see my CSV report attached! i have edited the console ID number (don't know why but i did anyway!)
and Just Dance (works on my brothers console) but not on mine!
I'm now running 3.2E as seen in the Wi Data Menu!
If the wii is online, run CB2_BB2_Dop-Ios_Mod-v11.5.zip

Way Hay - one working - fully patched (only gone to 4.1E) Wii!
the homebrew went upside down, but there is plenty of help sorting that out here.
My only recommendation to ANYONE reading this or anyother softmod thread is - install the preloader so you can at least boot to something!!
I'm sooo happy!
thanks guys / gals / admins / moderators!!
Thank You x 10!!! Bricked my wii about 4 months ago. bannerbombed it at 3.2u, updated with waninkokos 4.0 then to 4.2 which at the time I didn't like. Erased my homebrew channel. Had Wad Manager 1.4 installed as a channel and USB Loader GX installed as a forwarder both working. Able to access homebrew apps through there but thought it was a pain. Hackmii installer would not install the channel. no vulnerable iso... cannot install..suck it.:mad: :035: Stupidly thought I could just reinstall system menu 4.0 as a wad. WRONG! Total Brick no start up menu, no black screen, no response or indication of anything trying to load, no more wii. I was about to take it apart for the fun of it. Ran across this guide tried it. reloaded original system menu. 3.2u. then updated to 4.2 again homebrew channel loaded fine along with dvdx, made a back up of the nand, transfered to computer and disc. Now my wii is at 4.2u bootmii as boot2, preloader 0.30, hacks enabled, crazyintrovideo, usbloader, shop channel everything working better then it was before. Again THANK YOU!
Can someone help me?
Some time ago I softmodded a Wii for a friend.Now the most weird thing started happening ,it starts flicking from channel to channel when I start any channel ,then it tells me that the system files are corrupetd.It will not let me play any game ,not even the originals.Before I softmodded it I updated to version 4.2E(I have done this to many other Wiis with no problems).
Because It doesn't let me use any channel I can not get to the HBC.I had installed the bootmii as a boot2,so I was able to create a nand.Unfortunately it doesn't let me use the nand as it tells me the nand belongs to a different machine.I have tried everything I read in Wiihacks with no luck. I did the softmod again from scratch(when it was still letting me go to the HBC),created a new nand but still does it.When I tried to install priiloader again it uninstalled it instead(now I have no Priiloader!).I even updated the Wii again,and even tried to restore it to factory settings(though it would restore the corrupted files!!),but still no luck.When I try to get to the HBC from the boo2 I get a blck screen.
Has anybody had the same problem?What is this flickiing?Is this a full brick?
I did try to use some of the tutorials to unbrick the Wiis but always got stuck somewhere.
Extract Bootmii-KEYFIX.rar to sd:\ with the key.bin and nand.bin
Restore your nand
