    Hello,
    My wii is working fine, i've got BootMii installed as an ios, ive got the homebrew channel and I have a modchip,
    I can play online, open all the channels, and play all the games, however when I click on the envelope on the bottom on the screen and try to post a message i get the following error,
    "System Files Are Corrupt".
    Any help?
    Its weird everything is working except for the Messages on the Wii,

    thanks for the help in advance

    thanks,
    I'll look into using dop-mii, before using it im gonna read about it so i don't do some noobish wrong move and brick it.
    I've got a question though, is it worth fixing? I dont really use the Wii message board thing, or is the solution not very complicated?
    I found this:http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/how-to-use/dop-ios#SYM
    I guess I'll read into it.
    thanks

    Yeah, it's not too complicated.

    Just follow that link you posted. You can't go far wrong.

    As always, have a NAND backup just in case.

    How in the world does someone even get a mail brick? How do you send a letter to someone that somehow bricks them? Is it some kind of deliminator character?

    DOP-Mii is definitely the way to go. Had this problem not too long ago and it fixed it right up. let us know!

    There are a few diff ways to get what is called a mail brick, I used to have some info about it and how to fix using a tool like FSToolBox-0.4 for example (but this app just deleted 1 file when ran), as you only need to delete one bad file from NAND.

    I'll have a look and see if I can find it and post it to you. Or if you're impatient or I don't respond soon enough the info is on Wiibrew and so is FSToolBox-0.4.
