    try accessing homebrew channel?
    If not, run titlelister? (does bootmii have a .elf launcher?)

    BootMii boots up but you cant get in HomeBrew Channel that's terribly odd.
    This might be one of the cases that a Nand back up is the only way to restore the System Menu.

    If you did nothing to get this brick it must be some kind of hard ware failure..?

    There is a .elf loader in bootmii (third option).

    Run anyregionchanger through there and reinstall your system menu.

    How did this brick occur? Installing cioscorp? Preloader? A wad?

    Lol, you can launch linux with that, but that's nearly it.


    Get cBoot2, get the files you need on sd card from somebody, you obviously can't use the installer. With cBoot2 try to boot the included WAD Manager. If that works, install IOS36 and IOS61 one of both should be the used one by your HBC, and IOS36 is required for most homebrew anyways. Then install the system menu IOS and system menu, best 3.2. And then do an online update to get the missing rest. Well that's all in case you lost your stuff somehow.

    Your getting a Black screen on boot hmm Well if you didn't install\remove anything, and if it happened all at once,

    i'd say either your Bluetooth module or Wifi Module has went bad, if you can turn on your Wii with your Wiimote than its not your Bluetooth. but the nand usage 3.3% does got me alittle puzzled??? if wiipowers post above doesn't work than start looking into this post hope this helps [​IMG]

    edit: and both are easy to fix.

    like i said in my previous post A bad bluetooth module or wifi module can cause all your problems when one of them goes bad the only thing that will work is bootmii if its installed. i think its your bluetooth module myself

    Bluetooth Module

    I would class what WiiPower said as law! This is the dude who brought us neogamma!

    Dont knock good reply's such as his! But obviously dont cry to him if you accidentaly f'up (human error mistake.) Any mod to your wii is risky'ish as anyone will tell you but you got the best advice from Wiipower...If you choose to take his advice you will know it's coming from a good source!!!!

    Be lucky!!!

    Fingers crossed for you!!
