Yesterday I was playing wii fit plus for about an hour (on usbloaderGX) and when I was done and returned to the system menu I was met with a "system files corrupted" message. I had not installed anything in a couple of days so I am not sure what the exact cause of the brick is. Last week I installed some wiiware titles and two of TroytheAnimatedZombie's emulator forwarder channels, but I moved all of that stuff to the sdcard except for the NES and SNES forwarder, and the USBloadergx forwarder. I have played the wii a lot since I installed that stuff with no problems so I am not sure if that is the cause of this message. I am on system menu 4.1U and I have a backup with bootmii as boot2. Preloader 0.29 is installed. I can access bootmii and preloader, but when I try to jump to homebrew channel I get nothing but a black screen. I would guess this means that the only way I can install any wads is to either do the smashstack by autobooting or by using preloader. I am not sure how preloader does with installing/uninstalling wads though. Most ppl say to use wad manager for recovery but I dont know how I can get to it if the autoboot thing does not work. I would like some input from others as to how I should proceed. I do not want to take inappropriate steps and make my situation worse. So, should I just recover with bootmii OR should I reinstall the system menu wad for 4.1U and hope for the best? Thanks to anyone who can help, I was going to take my wii to my parents house tomorrow so the whole family could play. So I hope I get this fixed. I dont have money to buy another today and hack it, lol.
