    Ok, so I haven't had any problems with my wii in the 6 months I've had it, but suddenly it's having issues. Now whenever I try to load the system menu I get the "system files are corrupted" message. Here's a list of all the relevent information about the state of my Wii:

    System Menu 4.2. I updated a couple weeks ago and everything was running fine, but suddenly today I go to play and get issues. Haven't done any modding since I last played when everything was working fine...

    Preloader .29 installed. It loads fine on powerup, but can't load system menu from there.

    HBC. Can load it successfully from preloader.

    Bootmii as IOS. I am able to load it from HBC, so I can theoretically do a NAND restore correct?

    NAND backup on SD card from immediately before 4.2 update.

    ...

    I'm still able to play games via backup loaders through HBC, so that's not soooo bad...but the sudden loss of the system menu is disturbing...

    Help?

    Preloader is set to that IOS.

    I updated through that "safe 4.2 updater" program....I'll dig up the name in a bit, but it runs through HBC

    Was on system menu 4.1 before...and originally 4.0 when I bought the system.

    The problem is your IOS70 is not trucha patched and/or ES_Identify patched. The 4.2 safe updater buy zektor does not patch any ios', it is exactly like the official ninty update except it does not install any stub ios' or update your boot2.

    Preloader requires a trucha patched and ES_Identify patched system menu IOS. But the updated version (Priiloader) does not.

    So either install IOS70patchedfreethewads.wad, or upgrade to Priiloader, or both.

    I recommend updating to Priiloader, and if u have pirated wiiware or vc games, u need a trucha patched system menu IOS (IOS70 on 4.2) for those to work.

    Upgrade preloader to priiloader rev32 (links available here).

    fyi, signatures are not working for any1 right now, even if u try re-creating one, it will tell u it is too long (even if its 5 letters). I'm sure gbatemp will get it all sorted soon enough [​IMG]

    @DeadlyFoez, correct me if I'm wrong, but the only thing 4.1 has that isn't offered by 4.2 is being able to player regionfree backup disks right (via a system menu hack)? So it would only make a difference to any1 using an older wii (one without a D3-2 chipset and can actually play backup disks in the first place), and to someone who still uses backup disks to launch games (as opposed to usb loaders).

    In short, (again, plz correct me if i am wrong), but the only reason some1 would opt for a 4.1 system over a 4.2 is if they want to play regionfree backup disks and their hardware can support it.

    That being said, 4.2 doesn't offer anything that 4.1 doesn't... but I just like being on the most recent firmware and still playing all my games off a usb just to rub in ninty's face!
