    Ok last night I was using the wii, this morning I'm getting a black screen with 4.2.
    I cios rev 17 installed and mios and everything was ok yesterday.
    What could be the problem?

    Black screen on what? I expect in general; before anything happens.
    Check the cables first.

    He says it's got 4.2 in the corner, meaning it's the "recovery menu" showing up for some reason or another. It could be a preloader hack you installed, or just random happenstance. I've had it randomly load on my Wii a few times, but resetting always took care of that.

    EDIT: Or at least that's what I gather has happened since he said "black screen with 4.2," anyway.

    no no I got system menu 4.2, last night I was playing with it then this morning I'm getting a black screen even it feels like a full brick except I didn't mess around with anything and I can boot into homebrew channel/priiloader via power/reset buttons through bootmii in the dark.

    Oh yeah and I'm using a vga cable

    ok maybe it's your VGA box the problem.
    My crappy one (XCM) doesen't support NTSC nor PAL but only "EDTV/HDTV" (and higher resolution but Wii doesn't support anything higher). so if my wii is configured to be PAL I just got a blackscreen on my computer screen.
    Check your connection, cable, resolution mode, and so on

    Ok so I manage to access the hbc through priiloader and I tried to run a game through softchip, only the screen goes black after that green flash when you try to play a backup.

    if bluetooth is broken, bootmii can still work. tried it first hand.

    but you can't do much since bluetooth is broken

    From the thread topic I thought this was going to be about a VD. [​IMG]

    VD isn't funny [​IMG]

    Try turning off all of your preloader hacks.

    Did you try installing IOS70 like someone said?

    DO NOT do a system update / safe updater as there's a good chance that'll kill preloader and then you're in a worse state than you're in now.

    Restore a bootmii backup?
