    I installed Patched IOS 60 on my 4.0U wii, then I couldn't get into the system menu... not thinking I went back into wadmanager and uninstalled it. now I cant even get preloader to open... I get a blackscreen when I try to turn on my wii.

    Any hope for me?

    There
    the problem is you uninstalled ios60.

    You NEVER do that.

    You should see if bootmii works(if you even have that)

    Ask DeadlyFoez to fix it for you. Either that or send it to Nintendo.

    first I'm assuming you don't have bootmii, and that you held the reset button when turning on the wii (which loads priiloader/preloader)

    Also, this may not be the first thing you would want to try, but you could look in to savemiifrii and use it with the new super Mario bros Wii (or any other game with Wii update higher than 4.0)
    but you might want to wait for other reply's before trying that, as it involves opening up a Gamecube controller

    1. You can do it with the D-pad intact on an official GCN controller by pressing the center of the pad firmly.
    2. Doesn't matter because this requires the System Menu IOS (hint: IOS60) to work.

    DeadlyFoez knows more about fixing no-protection bricks like this. In fact, I think he had a guide up but blanked it a few hours ago out of anger.

    bootmii as ios, tried the reset, nothing happens... it's a black screen...
    I will try savemiifrii as a gamecube controller is cheaper then a new wii.
    Anyone know of a game that has the 4.1 FW? I don't really want 4.2 but I will do it if need be.

    EDIT: If IOS60 is the problem then you are fucked.

    Don't bother. Without a System Menu IOS, you're fucked. Savemiifrii won't work if no code can even run. Contact Nintendo or Deadlyfoez. NEVER uninstall any IOS below 200 unless you know what you're doing.

    Ok wait. Do you got a NAND BACKUP? If you got your nand ID and nand backup it is reprogramable. If you dont have, you are screwed because you cant get your keys in a bricked state unless you had bootmii as boot 2.

    btw after you installed patched 60, perhaps preloader wasnt set to autoboot sys menu and to use ios 60.
    and because you went UNinstalling it, means no system menu means no preloader means brick.

    I hope you got the nand keys and a nand backup.

    Sorry but youre bricked

    Now what really bugs me is why did you uninstall the sm ios.
    There was a huge wave of People doing that some months ago,
    but I never understood why.
