    Exclamation Semi-Bricked NAND after RestoreMii-any advice?

    Hi Guys,

    Recently, I tried to restore my wii, because one of my cousins accidentally installed one of his savegames over mine. When I tried to reinstall my NAND memory as IOS, NOT BOOT2 to bring back my savegame, it partially bricked my Wii. Luckily, I installed BootMii and Priiloader beforehand. I backed up my Wii NAND with IOS on BootMii. I didn't have BootMii boot2 when I backed up my NAND, only BootMii IOS. After I backed up my NAND, I didn't have BootMii boot2 before I got bricked, so my NAND backup doesn't have BootMii boot2. My cousin also told me to install Priiloader v0.7, but it was after I made the NAND backup, so my backup doesn't have BootMii boot2 or Priiloader, but my backup has BootMii IOS. My cousin and I once tried using RestoreMii with the NAND, but before we started, we realized that boot2 and Priiloader weren't in my NAND backup, so we decided to not use RestoreMii. My cousin seems to think it is a bannerbrick, but I can still access the Wii Menu. However, I can't access the System Settings or any of the Wii Channels; it shows me the black screen of death. I can't access HBC or ANY CHANNEL via System Menu. I also lost my Wi-Fi connectivity after the incident. With BootMii I can access the Homebrew Channel and still be able to load games that way, however, I can't add to the save memory any further (in other words, my game progress is locked). Is there any way I can fix this semi-brick problem through soft-modding and make my Wii fully functional again? I don't really want to send it off to Nintendo, and I don't do any hard-modding. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I followed Mauifrog's softmod any wii guide and I have 4.1u with all cIOS.

    If you have bootmii installed as boot2, the simplest way may be to everything by doing mauifrogs anywii guide from start to finish. Start the process using the "other desperate options-boot2" option. Installing everything in the guide will sort it out for you.

    Load wiimod v3 from the hbc. Select title manager from the advanced menu. Look under system titles for ios0, if you have ios0 delete it.

    ios0 is just a ticket file created by apps to get su permissions in the system menu, or something like that. It is usually created by system check tools, and other things. But it is not supposed to be there, it should be deleted by the app when done. Some versions of some apps fail to delete this which causes symptoms similar to the op. It is call a dop-ios mod brick because dop-ios mod v11.3-11.4 cause this, but I believe some versions of pimp my wii have done it, and who knows what else.
