    Well, as a newcomer in the wii world I unfortunately ended up at the " The system files are corrupted etc " stage in my screen, also the safety warrant doesn't appear before that. Fortunately I can manage to go to the preloader v0.29 menu by holding down the "reset" button and there are 4 options - Systemmenu ( like obvious - doesn't work ), homebrew channel ( I have installed that also ), Installed file ( which leads to the wad manager 1.4), Load/Install File ( Boot.dol, downgrade IOS35.dol, Wadmanager 1.4.dol - in my SD, all of them are installed ), Systemmenu hacks and settings.

    In my homebrew channel I'm able to launch the BootMii by clicking the "home" button on wiicontroller, but in BootMii I can't navigate with wiiController and also I don't have a nintendo controller.

    Anyway, is there any possibility for me to fix this unpleasant situation ? If there is, I would be more than thankful if it would be step-by-step, because according my experience and knowledge about wii console.

    Thank you,
    Cheers.

    Yeah... it's pretty easy: use wad manager / AnyTitle Deleter to delete the last thing you've installed (ex: a bad wad)
    You can reinstall systemmenu with wad manager... just download and pack it with NUS downloader

    do not reinstall system menu wad! It will remove preloader and won't fix the brick if u still have the bad wad. It essentially means it iwll fully brick your wii.

    Yes, it happened after I installed the WAD for some kind of a music channel.
    When I'm going to the preloader to use the wad manager it offers me to select the various version IOS-s, it doesn't offer me a "AnyTitle Deleter" or such.
    And if I use any of these IOS-s and press "A" to continue the system crashes by throwing some kind of parameter on the screen.

    If your on system menu 4 reinstall preloader that should fix your problem ( well it did for me )

    Only removing the corrupted WAD that caused the banner brick should do the trick. Try the following:

    :. Download http://wiibrew.org/w/images/8/8c/AnyTitle_Deleter_HBC.zip and decompress it under any folder under /apps/ in your SD.

    :. Boot with preloader and run Homebrew Channel. Select AnyTitleDeleter from the HomeBrew Channel Menu

    :. Browse the titles until you find the last one you have installed. Delete it and reboot. You should be good now.

    Um, you can navigate in bootmii with power and reset buttons. i know the issue is resolved but you mentioned in first post you couldnt navigate. i hate how so many n00bs installed bootmii and then complain their wiimotes wont sync.

    EDIT: Just noticed you're talking about IOS version, which wont work with front buttons, and must be controlled with Gamecube controller.

    Bootmii launched via HBC supports only navigation through a GC-Controller plugged into port 1 [​IMG]

    Nice to see a "newcomer in the Wii World" being told to use any title deleter - its only a few klicks away from fully screwing his wii into bullshit...

    @alakt: as i understand you can boot into hbc and also lauch wad-manager? if so, just use wad manager to uninstall the wads that you installed latest. This should fix your brick.

    he did say that the saftey warning didn't appear, which is uncharacteristic of a banner brick. Usually the warning shows up and then the menu crashes when trying to display your channels.

    As I told earlier, when I use wad-manager, it gives me a option to choose various amount of IOS-s and if a choose one randomly, it throws only some parameters on my screen.
    Also, I installed an AnyTitleDeleter, just in case if I need it someday [​IMG]
    Well, my problem is solved by now and I'm very thankful for everyone, who were able to help me [​IMG]
