    1: Wait for a new update to come out
    2: reprogram NAND backup (assuming you have one) with NAND programmer.

    newbie mistakes

    no sadly i dont have priiloader installed, i dont have a nand backup either. could i get a nand backup for my 4.2 system menu? so is bootmii all the way useless unless its installed as a boot2? i've heard that endless ocean 2 has a 4.2 update on it, can my 4.2 system menu restore from a 4.2 update? thank you for your helpful replies.

    No, I gave you the 2 options above. As you cant do option 2, its only option 1.

    What guide did you follow to softmod? If you have a system ios patched, or any ios that runs a game patched (like ios36), you can fix this with a modchip, or what for the next system menu update to come out on disk (could be awhile).

    You should give this a read-

    i used bannerbomb hackmii 6.0 i couldnt leave good enough alone and tried to put a theme on my wii after seeing a friends done successfully. i have dvdx homebrew channel and bootmii as ios installed. ran trucha bug restorer mod to ios 36 and 236 to delete ios 249 stub, and installed ciosx-rev 19 with ios 38 as a base. are mod chips hard to install?thank you for the help at least theres a little hope with a modchip where can i get one?

    the link was helpful but i dont think i meet the requirements due to the autoboot discs not loading they spin and stop when im in the savemii free recovery menu

    Modchips are not hard to install, they are about 40-60 $. Also you need a dvd drive that reads dvds, some new drives do not read them. Nothing will load from savemiifrii without a modchip. A new update will load without a modchip, but that could take some time. From what you have described your wii should be fixable with a modchip.
