    I started with a 4.1 virgin system, and I've followed the directions listed here for soft-modding my Wii. Everything seemed to go through just fine...all the IOS seemed to mod ok using WAD Manager 1.4, and even when I installed a few WAD's they went to the Wii System Menu ok too.

    However when I click on Start for any of the WAD channels, my screen turns black and the Wii Remotes just blink 4 lights upon pressing any button. The only way to fix this state is to pull the power cord out to restart.

    That means either a corrupt wad file or that you put the wrong kind of file on it. or named something wrong. if you used wadder well then it's likely a corrupt wad....... just try from the start with a base wad supplied for wadder that is supported for it. I advise one of the earlier illegal versions of wadder for it's basewad to use with the newer versions...

    Verified that they weren't bad wads as I found new, fresh copies of the same wad and tried again... same symptoms. I'm stumped.

    I'm thinking I should start everything over again, but I'm unsure how to get my Wii back into a non-modding state

    Ensure you have the IOS the game uses installed. What you described is what happens it tries to run a nonexistant ios. IIRC, theres a download program that will let you download IOS files for you to install direct from nintendos servers.
