Please help!!!! My son had an accident and deleted the homebrew channel now alkl im left with is a black screen nothing else!! I dont have a nand so is there anything i can do or is the system totally messed up??? Failing that can nintendo restore the system??? Please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(
Deleting the homebrew channel alone would not cause a black screen. Your son must have done something else. If you could find out what else was removed that would be handy.
So you get no warning screen or anything?
Do you have preloader? Hold reset as you power on the Wii?
Do you have bootmii/boot2 installed? Does the DVD slot flash twice within 1 second or so when you power on?
Hi mate, HE IS 7 SO ALL I COULD GET OUTTA HIM WAS "HE PUSHED THE DELETE BUTTON ON THE CHANNEL WITH ALL THE BUBBLES" AS I SAY I DONT HAVE A NAND FILE BUT YES I DID INSTALL BOOTMII AND BOOT2! WHEN I INSERT THE SD CARD I GET THE 4 GREY HB ICONS ON BOOTMII ie. RETURN TO WII, HB CHANNEL, AND THE COGS ECT. BUT I CANT GET ANYTHING TO HAPPEN with them. So I guess im screwed!! pardon my french!!!!!! any ideas??

As for the cogs, well I'd imagine that Wii menu is gone, Homebrew channel is gone but you should be able to use cboot2 to launch some apps to re-install stuff.
You will need to beg, borrow or steal(not really steal) a gamecube controller to use that menu and any applications which you will need to get your Wii back. You can get one pretty cheap.
