    What means "accidentally install ios249"? Installing cIOS won't brick your Wii.

    Yes, if Pre Loader will boot up and you can use the HomeBrew channel then we can fix this Wii..[​IMG]

    First we need some info of the Wii.
    Like what was the System Menu?

    Ah, The easiest way but dangerous way is to use "cIOS Downgrader v1.2" and reinstall the System Menu but this deletes Pre-loader so if you brick it while doing this there is no hope of fixing the Wii.

    If you need help using cIOS Downgrader v1.2 or a link to it let us know....

    GOOD LUCK!

    I un-bricked it, thanks to you tube video (search for unbrick wii) and follow the instruction of unbrick using preloader. Basically I was able to reload it back to 3.2u and get it back and running. Again I bricked it when ever I ran the IOS60patched during the upgrade to 4. I decided not to use that but my wii is working so now I know how to fixed bricked wii. Thanks all.
