    you must be extremely lucky that you haven't brick your Wii.

    Rule #1 for Wii homebrew: Don't install anything if you are not sure what it is.

    I think it's rule number one for ALL hacks on all consoles.
    always understand what you are doing and why. know what you should expect as result to be able to verify you did it correctly.

    I'm guessing you installed the full IOS needed for 4.1U instead of a stub, or something like that. I can't 100% remember how installing IOSes on the Wii works right now.

    he just installed the system menu 4.1U wad instead of the 4.3U wad when using modmii.
    They are both using IOS70 so he didn't brick.

    But even if he reverted back to an old system menu, it wouldn't have bricked either if he used modmii, because as safety modmii install IOS70 in all "system menu requested IOS" slot : slot30 40 50 60 70 etc.

    information :
    4.1U is TOTALLY FINE.
    it's even better than 4.3U. so don't try to update or replace it. keep it, it's easier/safer/less issues.

    Use IOS250 or 251 (whichever one it will boot on) for Just Dance. It doesn't work with IOS56.

    Games don't care what System Menu you have, the last functionality I know of being added by a SM was SDHC support with the release of 4.0.
    4.1 fixed having to repeatedly watch a Wii Motion+ video and 4.2 and 4.3 just tried to block Homebrew.

    It looks like Just Dance 2015 added mic support which would require a cIOS with a 58 base. Given your setup that means IOS251. If your current 251 is still not working, you may have to download/build a beta53-alt version that supports plug and play USB.
    There are only a handful of games that require a base58 cIOS, all the others also use instruments connected via USB.

    IIRC, I'm using the v10beta52 for my 245-251 cIOSs but my WD drive worked fine with the v8 and previous cIOSs. The v9 and v10-alt added support for PnP and some problem drives (but broke a few things) while the v10beta52 reverted back to v8 base.

    Usually when people install cIOS223 it is a 37+38 merged install and 224 is 57 based cIOS.

    There is NO good reason for patching/modding all the game IOSs. While your disc drive may be old enough to play a backup disc you are obviously using USB loading and playing from a backup disc will shorten the life of your drive. I don't think PMW allows for backup disc loading but CIOSCORP/Dakcorp will also patch game IOSs.
    The only IOSs less than 200 that should be patched/modded are the SM ones, 11, 20, 30, 40, 50, 52, 60, 70, and 80. They should be built with IOS 60v6174 and have all the access patches.

    You managed to get through PMW updates without bricking so congrats, you could leave your Wii alone but if you want to fix it or ever do another Wii, use Modmii or Softmod ANY Wii .
    The Modmii page may not be working right now but that is the current link.

    PMW did some weird mod, either it made SM 4.1 run on IOS 80 which is dumb or it took IOS60v6174 and just changed the version number to 6400 (which is the Nintendo stub version number) making it had to tell at a glance what is going on. Both Modmii and Softmod ANY Wii guides change their SM IOS version numbers well beyond the Nintendo numbering so you can tell what they are.
