    A while ago, my wii was displaying an error upon booting the system menu. There was some corruption which was seen by my console name being scrambly looking. I was able to fix it by restoring to an older backup. All was fine then.

    However, months later, I tried using internet services and my wii is unable to connect with error code 101246. Upon googling it, I found it can be related to a corrupted save. So I go into Wii Settings ---> Wii Saves: it stalls and doesn't continue.

    I load up any title deleter and completely delete all my saves, this did not fix anything.

    When I go to Installed Channel Titles, the only thing I have on there is the hombrew channel and Kirby 64. Kirby 64 cannot be deleted by any title deleter (stalls). Also, I cannot load any channels on the system menu as they stall (but was never a problem because I load directly into homebrew channel).

    So I'm guessing Kirby 64 is the culprit but anytitle deleter is not removing it. How can I get rid of this channel (or possibly start my wii from fresh). I have all my saves backed up so I don't really have anything of value (not to mention I already deleted all of the installed saves).

    Edit: This kirby 64 was downloaded from the wii shop when I first got this wii years ago.

    Stalls on: - Deleting title dir/title/00010001/4e414d45...

    I remember hearing about being able to extract the nand, open it with some files, delete remnants of this game, restore the nand?

    which version of anytitledeleter have you tried, i suggest trying AnyTitle Deleter v1.1 by bushing, older version may not give you enough permissions

    Maybe you should rehack it again with Letterbomb.
    You could've deleted the corrupted channel using a wad manager instead of restoring an old backup.

    I should have made it clear that before I restored it, it was not a corrupted title, it was something like the syscon file that could have been corrupted.

    Stev, good point. It doesn't say version 1.1, it's a version I picked up years ago... I'll report back soon.

    Ok it says - Deleting title dir/title/00010001/4e414d45...
    Error! ISFS_Delete(ret=-102)
    -Deleting ticket file ticket/00010001/43414d45.tik...
    Ticket delete failed (No ticket?) -102
    Press any key

    I re-installed the homebrew channel, it still stalls while trying to load a channel using the system menu.

    After I restored a few months ago, I reupdated all of the IOSes using ModMii

    well, there's only one thing to do i guess, delete the entire hack and start all over again, thats right, update the wii normally then rehack it with letterbomb.

    That problem can lead to corruption of the NAND, who knows?

    Well it's 4.3 already and refuses to go online (so no update online anyays).
    If I try reformatting it, it stalls on something and doesn't finish.

    I wouldn't mind starting fresh, is there a homebrew I can use that will pwn the filesystem back to factory?

    AFAIK, no, and why it doesn't let you update normally? Maybe you have priiloader and its blocking online updates?

    Wii cannot connect to the internet: Error Code: 101246. There is a problem with the WiiConnect24 service.

    Edit: Googling told me this has to do with corrupted data.

    Edit2: Same exact problem with this this guy: http://www.fixya.com/support/t13948131-wii_39_t_get_past_home_menu

    Channels and wii system menu stuff taking minutes to load.

    Maybe try reinstalling your system menu.

    Easiest way to reinstall system menu offline is probably DOP-Mii. Just download the wads you need using something like NUS Downloader, and place in root of SD card. For 4.3U grab system menu v513 and IOS80

    ps. If anytitledeleter was spitting out Error! ISFS_Delete(ret=-102), then you aren't using v1.1, since bushings version uses AHBPROT http://wiibrew.org/wiki/AnyTitle_Deleter#AnyTitle_Deleter_v1.1_by_bushing

    The version that I was using was using AHBPROT (patching IOS 58 right?) and still gives that error. I just woke up, I'm going to try and reinstall system menu and the corresponding IOS that relates to it. The one thing i am scared of is I won't have a valid internet connection (and if I'm not mistaking, this is going to get rid of priiloader). It will take me upwards of 3 minutes to get into the homebrew channel (unless I prepare an SD card that will work with my bootmii as boot2).

    Reinstalled all of the IOS's (including 80) with system menu 4.3 (513). Still has problems with wii connect24 and that kirby title cannot be deleted with anytitle1.1 by bushing or the new redsquirrel mod

    Wii channels still take ~ 3 minutes to load

    Ok: I have found an identical post, can someone help me figure out what was done?

    http://forum.wiibrew.org/read.php?21,60707,61309

    They are saying, make a backup of a valid wii, take my wii keys, use wii keys + other backup to fix or use Comex's nand tool?

    Just an update on how I fixed the problem, I used Ohneschwanzenegger to start a clean nand, flashed using bootmii, no longer having problems loading channels but I had another wii error code (it was the problem with authenticating my wii with the servers?) Quick google and Tueidj answered it somewhere saying to do a format. Did a system format (which actually didn't hang this time), fixed the issue, re-hacked my wii and all is well.


    I also wanted to mention that the title that was not able to be deleted was giving invalid hmac during nandbincheck
