    hey guys i was hoping to pick your brains a little.

    my system is

    wii key 1
    system3.2 with homebrew channel updated to 4.0 including back up loader & cios 10 all is well
    installed wad60 tp

    then i couldnot load my backups so i figured i would delete wad60 and now my wii is just a black screen

    everytime i turn the system on all i see is black any ideas.

    would the savemiifrii work with my problem and do i need a original zelda disk ??

    Why would you ever delete something if you don't know what you/it are doing? Of course, instead of questioning your barren mentality, I'll help.

    Sure, SaveMiiFrii will work.

    I think savemiifrii would work, just take apart a gcn contoller and hold down the 4 d-pad buttons whilst its in the 4th gcn slot and booting up with twilight princess. Hopefully it'll work, Good luck! and please post if it worked or not.

    hmmmm, why twilight princess? surely if he's on 4.0 he cant have twilight hack installed, and twilight princess cant update the wii to a firmware higher than 4.0. in fact no game can, so he's pretty much screwed as far as i can see.

    Don't think there's a solution. The savemiifrii thing won't work.
    You're not the first person to brick a wii this way. A lot of other people deleted ios60 too, thinking it just an extra one. But under 4.0, the system menu runs under it.

    That's not the point, and if it's still modded then it could run twilight princess dependin wut components have been modded. Also at worst if this worked it could update its self to 4.0 but then they'd lose the hacks. i'm only a coder so i dont know much >.< soz

    SaveMii won't work. You could only repair it with an Infectus or BootMii ...

    Well, they do. But it will cost you a pretty penny. I saw an invoice in the amount of 200 euro's because of non compliant software.

    Look if you have, preloader installed, you should be able to acces HBC and reinstall.
    If you have it, you can acces it by holding the power button simultaneously with the resetbutton.

    Wii hacking is close to idiot proof, but not quite.

    Wouldn't it work if he used the SaveMii Free (GC Controler) method with a auto boot disc that had Wad Manager on it? Auto boot the disc go into WadManager and install ios60. Would need to get a modchip though.

    If he has ios249 installed he might beable to use The Universal Unbrick Disc v2 with the method above.

    so many ppl with wad issues... why do you mess with wads?

    just keep it simple,

    homebrew + emulation + backup loader = fun.

    also if something doesn't work, dont go deleting stuff come on here first, most likely someone on here has a solution.

    I think the moral of your story and the other people with bricked Wiis is...

    1.) RESEARCH

    2.) Back up your Wii with BootMii or some other method before f*cking around.

    3.) Don't randomly uninstall your IOS files.

    4.) Back up your Wii with BootMii or some other method before f*cking around.

    5.) ???

    6.) PROFIT
