    Hi guys. This issue has been going on for a while now, i turn on my wii and it freezes on the health and warning screen, so im thinking its banner bricking itself? the time before it bricked itself, i was just flipping channels in the system menu. I was on super smash bros injected, it loads fine, next was sin and punishment, which was fine, i went back to ssb, then backwards to the homebrew channel, voila "The system files are corrupted"! Weird. So i turn on my wii again, everything is fine. Shut it off, went to bed, next day find that i can't boot it up with my wiimote, and when i press my power button, health warning screen freeze. Now i can only access my system menu by switching to ios 36 in preloader, then back to ios 60. Here is a list of what i have installed:
    Cioscorp v1
    CIOS rev 10
    CIOS60BF.wad
    custom injected channels as well as regular vc games (although this issue occured also when there were no vc games installed, only HBC)

    So is homebrew channel causing me bricks? WTF? Also, i don't know if this is related to the disc read failure of Metroid Prime 1, and occasionally metroid prime 2 (both wii de asoubu)

    Any ideas on whats going on?

    good freaking lord, lol. sounds like it could be a mess of things.


    sounds like

    a-either you installed bad wad(s) or your system menu is corrupt
    b-your bluetooth module may be dying/dead

    no its not the remote, cuz my other 2 do the same things as well. I have no idea what could have corrupted it. Cioscorp maybe? Never had a problem with it in 3.2u but this random bricking things started when i updated to 4.0u

    Is there a wad validator to check if the packages are not corrupt? its a good thing i have preloader and bootmii installed.

    ok, but when i was on 3.2 yesterday, the thing booted just fine with the remote. im sure its a software thing (IOS related). the thing never fails to boot on 3.2 or 3.3 or 3.4, just 4.0

    why would it be broken or dying? it just updated to vanilla 4.0, and it works perfectly now, but no backup support.

    It was perhaps your IOS files. In theory the update might have 'fixed' it by installing proper versions of IOS.

    Well, if you couldn't power your Wii on with your Wiimote, this surely must have been a hardware issue, right? When the Wii is off, no software is running, therefore it can't malfunction, but hardware can fail at all times.

    EDIT: I just realized that this only applies if standby mode is disabled, of course. IOS continues to run when the Wii is in standby mode.

    Powering on the Wii with your Wiimote is possible regardless of whether standby mode is enabled. If it doesn't work at all, the bluetooth module might be dead or dying. If it works when the Wii is completely off, but doesn't work in standby mode, the IOS (I guess System Menu's IOS) might be damaged.
