    system menu corrupted is not a brick if thats what your thinking.

    if you can boot into preloader your not bricked.

    Well if he doesn’t have bootmii then you can’t restore any kind Nand, as far as I know bootmii is the only way to do it.

    If you can tell us what he did to actually brick the thing, I may be able to help more.

    Does the system have HBC 1.0.5/6 and a non JODI patched Preloader? Is that why HBC won’t load?

    more than likely he installed the regular preloader .29
    and cant get into his system menu because of the menu corrupted message.

    he has the latest hbc but preloader was not patched.as far as i can see thers is no way to fix the problem so he's buying a used wii from ebay hopefully it won't be on 4.2.

    i tried installing a boot.dol file since that is all i'm able to do with his preloader install files.at least i think there installing.i tried the hackmii file.the uused wii might be the only option its better than sending the nitendo wii to nintendo themselves isn't it.

    you should be able to install the boot.dol in preloader to boot hbc.

    or better yet, try using preloader to set the system menu to boot with IOS 249 in the settings.
    if it works then run HBC
