    Hello everyone, i did something real stupid, i made a nand backup, however thats on a 2.5 sdata hard drive and i cant get to it. so now im left here with a wii that wont really start up. i can get into preloader just fine. am i screwed?
    Is there anyway to fix this issue?
    also i installed dark/corp 1.1 if that helps. i just wanted to play kirby-_-

    also i have been looking over this thread
    http://gbatemp.net/t185984-bricked-wii-wit...ackup?&st=0
    i have a compiled version of cboot2 v16 ready to go if that helps:/
    also im a noob when it comes to un bricking a wii as i have never done it before.

    THE HOMEBREW CHANNEL DOES NOT WORK

    Any help at all would be great thanks

    if you canget into HBC and reinstall all your ios you should be fine.
    MODMII is the way to get all you need.

    EDIT: oops i saw in the title after. I would try to install a .dol of MMM to get those wads installed it might work

    Boot into preloader and start the Homebrew Channel
    Put IOS70-64-v6687.wad and System_Menu_4.2.wad on your sd card and use YAWMM to install them.
    Once your back in HBC install Priiloader v0.4.

    Guys, he clearly states he cannot boot into the Homebrew Channel... = ="

    Do you know the reason you can't boot into the HBC?

    I'm thinking the issue is that installing DARKCORP messed up your IOS.

    Some questions:
    1) Do you recall what system menu version you were on?
    2) Do you have BootMii at boot2?
    3) How is your NAND backup unaccessible? Is it that you lost your HDD?

    If you have BootMii at boot2, you can easily place the BootMii files back onto your SD card, and restore you NAND backup if you can get it. (Transfer out of HDD onto PC and then onto SD card)

    Well damn, if you have no NAND backup it's going to be complicated, especially since you can't boot into the Homebrew Channel.

    I'm not too familiar with Priiloader, but is it possible that you can boot into BootMii IOS (which you should've installed no matter what)?

    Ok i was not clear enough in my post more clearly...

    1. download modmii
    2. use that and download all ios (page 1, i)
    3. use it also to download mmm (page 2,mmm)
    4. put the .dol of mmm at root of sdcard and install it into preloader.
    5. run it and install all the wads you downloaded

    DARKCORP patched your IOS files. Try a newer WAD Manager if yours is older (WAD Manager 1.7, MMM, etc.) and run from IOS249 and see if it helps.
