Wii System Menu Gone
I recently softmodded my Wii 4.2 pal using the "official 4.2 offline mod pack"
Worked a treat and can now play backups, I gave my friend the same files and somehow he has deleted his Wii System Menu.
He cannot get to the Wii System menu by any means, and if a program tries to "exit to system menu" a black screen comes up and the Wii Freezes. Obviously he can now not access the system settings / mii's etc
Posting for my friend as I work on a pc all day so can check back etc...
Bit more information:
he can load up the homebrew channel and use neogamma etc to play a legit or backup game of a legit game. but just cant get to the main menu.
Is he able to get the preloader/priiloader screen up? If so, what does the IOS v xxx and System Menu v xxx say?
Preloader has System Menu, Homebrew Channel, Load/Install File etc text going down the page.
That sounds like the screen he gets at boot up - I will send him a text and see what he says...
Marmankites has posted on my behalf
preloader screen says v0.29 when i press No: 1 button twice on controller in ends up as a black screen and freezes
i have managed to setup wii to boot directly to homebrew channel but any attempt to reach the wii menu just get black screen and need to reboot
look in the the lower corners there will be an ios number. We need to know that so we know what system menu its trying to load.
Also when i say we i actually mean them because I am still a follower at this time. I know enough to not brick my wii(searching on here first)
Ok brilliant. Still need the IOS version and System Menu version though.
Recovery from this 'should' be straightforward.
lol Twiggy. :)
IOS version V70
System Menu version V482
It should be just a matter of running Wad manager, picking IOS249 and installing the following IOS70patched IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].zip and System Menu v482. Use NUSD to grab Sys Menu v482 http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...ownloader.html as I don't have it in storage at the moment. Make sure you pick the right one.
You will need to re-install priiloader again once this is done.
We are still unsure why Priiloader/Preloader does this from time to time.
followed as instucted but have fallen at the wad manager
(+) mounting device please wait........ error! (ret = -1)
press any key to continue
unable to proceed any further?
wadmanager version V1.5 if this has any impact
Try 1.4 Version, it has less options to confuse you.
Ret=-1 means the manager can't find your card or the wads in the wad folder.
