    Here's something i've never come across. . Was fiddleing with ios 38. Yes. I know i was a fool and deserve some kind of retribution for my stupidity but i'm hoping i can dodge a bullet. When i turn on the wii now i get the press a to continue screen but when i press a button on the wiimote four lights flash blue but it doesn.t connect to the wii. If i leave the wii for a couple of mins it automatically goes to the normal system menu. I've tried repairing the two remotes i've got to the wii. No luck. Have plugged in third party gc controller. No dice. Have nand backup but bootmii loaded as an ios so no good. System menu 4.1e. I do have a modchip installed. No preloader etc. I'm out of ideas. Help

    In the middle of gun fire.
    Wait, did he brick two remotes, or just one?

    So, if you tried the GC remotes and they still didn't work, this probably partially bricked some part of the Wii.

    Someone else could probably help, but that is the only thing I can provide.

    This may sound obvious but you didn't say you did this so I'm going to ask anyways: Did you sync your Wiimotes again? I forget how but it's in the instruction manual somewhere.

    Why were you fiddling and what were you trying to do.

    Was trying to get an usb loader back working. I think i may have installed two different versions of 38. Dunno if that.s a potential issue ?

    Ios38 is not used by the sysmenu.
    Unless you messed with ios60 too, the issue lies somewhere else most likely.
    My guess would be hardware. What did you do to "repair" the wiimotes?

    Crosstest against known good to see wether its wii or motes.
    (your motes to good wii + good motes to your wii)

    Sorry that was a bad turn of phrase on my behalf. When i said repair i meant resynch. Am convinced hardware is fine and the cock up lies with ios . I can't do anything with ios without wiimote functionality

    If you do now want to crosstest it that's your choice.
    Imho its the first thing that one should do with every single problem involving multiple possible sources.
    But you excuse is just stupid.

    Though the gamecube controller issue may mean there is more going on here than just a sync issue. Still, worth a shot.

    I wasn't aware that i'd made an excuse ? I'm not going to cross test my remotes as i find it hard to accept that two remotes would fail at exactly the same time. It seems far too much of a coincidence that i was messing with fairly low level software in the wii at the time the problem occured . . .
