    Bricked...could not open boot file, PLS HELP!

    Hi,

    I got a soft-moded Wii and recently updated with cIOS38_rev16. Today I connected it to Internet first time and was prompted to update the system. I made a big mistake by clicking on yes and it went on to the update, but an error message came out saying there is a problem with Internet connection. So I aborted the update and restarted, and it tries to run the cIOS installation, which again had some exceptions and didn't complete. After that what I got is the following messages on a black screen:

    Systemmenu
    Homebrew Channel
    Installed File

    Load/Install File
    Systemmenu Hacks
    Settings
    Update

    There is an important update to v0.30
    Could not open boot file!

    IOS v30
    Systemmenu v257 preloader v0.28



    Not sure if this is a semi-brick or full brick. Would really appreciate if someone can provide advices on how to unbrick it, many thanks!

    Go to the homebrew channel? Go backwards from there, maybe updating cIOS through WAD Installation or updating safely through NUS Downloader or Waninkoko.
    4.1E - Priiloader 0.3b - bootmii as IOS - cIOS 38 r15 - Triiforce MRC v.7 - MPlayer CE v.0.76 - Configurable USB Loader v.48 - WiiFlow v1.1 - SanDisk 2GB SD - 320GB Vertabim HDD
    Please remember to hit if I've been of any assistance to you.

    3.1-4.1
    4.2

    Playing WiiWare and VC Games off of USB/SD

    That's preloader and you are still on 3.2 according to the IOS v30, v257 info displayed.

    I'm not familiar with the open boot file message so I had a quick look on Google and it seems it's a Preloader issue that would be fixed by re-installing System IOS and Menu and re-installing Preloader or Priiloader.

    No one can. Throw your Wii in the bin.

    j/k

    Your post is fail. Make a proper one or forget it, your choice.

    What system menu are you using? Did you install bootmii as boot 2 or as IOS? Is the Homebrew Channel accessible? Do you have a copy of your NAND.bin file? Need to know this info so I can help you. Thanks.
