    System Menu Corrupt, and cannot reinstall any version

    I was asked to fix someone's Wii yest. It had NOT been softmodded, or anything like that. But apparently while trying to update it, something went wrong.
    It's on 3.2u and just gives the system menu is corrupt after health screen. Started in maint mode, and can access everything but internet. SO, I modded it, and used priloader to install 4.1u thinking that reinstalling system menu would fix the issue with corrupt files. Didnt work. When I use MMM to check out settings it says (null) on sys menu version. Tried using a disc to update, and its still on 4.1u in settings, but still corrupt sys files.
    I reinstalled with MMM all the ios in Mau's tut. Just stuck on why in maint mode, cant reinstall any sys menu.
    On the up side, can play disc games now in maint mode, but cfg usb loader just brings back out to menu that doesnt work.
    So if ya happen to know whats erring out on it to be able to play everything (cant access internet in maint mode, so cant update from MMM either)
    Just got me all stumped cause seems all the hardware is working fine in maint mode, but still wont reinstall sys menu, and just keeps giving that damn sys files corrupt message.
    Tried installing priloader but it didnt install either.
    However I was able to mod it in maint mode. Strange. So I do have bootmii as IOS, and although priiloader seems to install, it never starts up when I hold down the button on startup. So I assume it's the same missing or corrupt file that is stopping the firmware update.

    hmm... well u check the system menu at the settings .. and if u cant access the system menu most probably it is half brick ..

    oh ya u didnt do one step which make the wii become like that .. that is u forget to install the patched ios 60 because if u didnt and just install the system menu then the wii will have weird side effects.. if u want to update wii u need to install the patched ios first then install the respective system menu .. sides it is also mention at the softmod guides..
    SYSTEM MENU V4.1U .. HBC v1.0.8 .. PRIILOADER V0.7(rev 138) .. Cios d2x v7-final ... WIIFLOW r417 .. NEOGAMMA B9 rev 47 (still lookin for new ones) .. etc etc

    You have a corrupted message board, a mail brick. You have two options, either go the the wii settings and do a system format of the wii settings, or follow these instructions-

    to do so.

    3. From HBC, run FSToolbox r50 and follow the on-screen instructions until you see your
    Wii's file struct (import, meta, shared1, shared2, sys, ticket, title, tmp).

    4. Navigate to shared2/wc24/ and replace any file with the one from SD by pressing PLUS.

    5. Navigate to shared2/wc24/mbox/ and do the same there.

    6. End the app and restart the Wii. You will get a message that your Mail account is broken
    and will be restored.

    8. PROFIT!

    Thanks Mau. Yeah I had run across that complete softmod guide and brick fixes on google that said it was prob a message board brick, but it also said that if I formatted it, it would fully brick if priiloader was installed. Figured I'd check with you guys to make sure. Thank's once again!
