    Nothing will load besides Homebrew Channel apps. I think AnyTitle Deleter totally fucked my Wii. Not even BootMii will load... Help?

    Edit: Wait, turns out BootMii won't load because it wasn't even on the SD Card. Question: If I have a fully functioning Wii, and I take the NAND from that Wii into the bricked Wii, will it work?

    Edit 2: OK, so here's the situation: My Black Wii is bricked, and the Wii Motes won't sync, but I have Priiloader and BootMii IOS. I have a White Wii, that's almost unhacked, and it has BootMii boot2. Question is: Can I get my White Wii NAND into the Black Wii and can it still work?

    No, you cannot. Each Wii has different NAND keys, you can't just make a NAND transfusion. ;) If you don't have a backup of your own then you have to do whatever it takes to boot either the Priiloader or BootMii. Hold down the RESET button and use a Gamecube controller or the face buttons of the Wii to navigate the menu.

    OK, so I have Priiloader, and BootMii, what next? Make a backup of the Black Wii's NAND?

    Can you boot into BootMii menu or the Priiloader by holding the RESET button when booting?

    Yup. All Homebrew functions work. Another question: Does bricking cause total Wii Remote desync?

    Can you launch Titles from the Priiloader menu? It should detect whatever you have on the SD.

    Homebrew titles? If it's Homebrew, yes, but it can't load anything else.

    When you're done with that, you should have a log on the SD card with all your IOS'es. It's likely that you deleted something thinking it was a stub IOS when in fact it was essential.

    I guess he will need a gc controller if his wiimotes refuse to sync?

    Is there a chance that I can still save my Wii? The Black one's the only one that can play Disc Games...

    If you can boot BootMii and Priiloader then it's entirely possible to save it as far as I know. You'd be in trouble if you couldn't. The moment you provide the Wii with the missing IOS'es, it should work just dandy.

    OK, one last thing: Is a backup necessary? I mean, I already have one, but still.

    Full NAND backups are used in the worst-case scenario when the Wii refuses to respond to anything else or to quickly roll back changes.

    OK, here's where I am now: Both versions of SysCheck freeze at "IOS202", and DOP-MII stops reading IOSs at 236. Any suggestions?

    Well I guess IOS202 is the problem. Any suggestions?

    It's either 202 or 236. Download new versions of both from ModMii, install them, and run SysCheck again.
