    You have bootmii as boot2, as you state you can TRY and run HBC, but it fails? Do you have a NAND backup you can use.

    I assume bootmii is runnng properly?

    Yep, I go to run hbc and I get a blank screen. The nand backup I have is no longer working. When I went to recover after the second time, I only got 3 green blocks, so somehow it got corrupted after a restore. AFAIK bootmii is running properly, I was able to launch comex. Cboot2 just says fat driver error can't load from front sd card reader.

    Have you tried to restore the NAND from another SD card in case yours has crapped out?

    Are you using a standard SD card (non SDHC).

    Sorry, having never restored from a NAND backup, cant help much more.

    Use cboot2 with hackmii installer and install hbc then reinstall system menu and its ios!

    If I read corectly you were on 4.1 use 4.2 system menu and ios to fix your problem! To get them use nus autodownloader!

    make sure u have ALL the files required to run cboot2, it sounds like u may be missing one (although it could be a different problem, i'm not 100% sure)

    AFAIK it only needs a few files and won't even load if they aren't all there. I'm at a loss for what else to do.

    Yes I'm trying that. What I really need is something that will wipe the whole thing and let me install the system firmware from scratch, but I can't figure out how to do that with comex. I'm trying right now to install 3.2 using comex but no matter what I do it still says 4.1 when I boot with savemiifrii gc controller method.

    That doesn't really help me. I don't have any experience with bricked Wii's which is why I came here. All I want is to get this thing working.

    using nand formatter will wipe out even your bootmii boot2 installation. and you have to compile it first to use it.

    be careful before you use the formatter you have to install all the needed files on the sd card before you proceed with formating your nand or else it will be the last thing that you saw your wii still boots up.

    cleaning the NAND wont erase Bootmii AFAIK,since wiping nands dont affect boot2,if it did then just using a nand backup would brick your wii,and that's stupid,lol

    in the logic it DOES erase bootmii,then he's already run it,so that means he has no Bootmii installed,well how is he gonna fix things now?That's to say,he still is fixing his Wii through Bootmii,that means it didn't wipe at all.

    Your logic states it wipes out Bootmii,yet he ran the formatter,why then is he still able to run Bootmii?

    Long story short:I don't think Nand cleaning erases Bootmii

    the question is:
    does acemilo already run and used comex nand formatter? he need to compile it first.
    it's not a nand cleaner it's a nand formater.

    Okay, I for once experience this when i was messing/experimenting around with a brick wii with vunerable boot2

    i took out the nand of a working wii with bootmii and place it on a US bricked wii, then use comex nand formatter putting the right IOS's and US 4.1 system menu. then after that i get the same "system files are corrupted" being sure that i have put the right IOS and thought it might be the system menu region then i right to use the PAL 4.1 system menu and ran comex nand formatter again and it boot right up.

    don't know whats wrong but it worked that way but i can't changed the region because i've been getting errors with sysconf..bla bla not sure about the name because it's way back.

    in the end i just used betwiin since i've been using the same nand on both wii's so bad blocks are not an issue.

    p.s. i was just expermenting with this extra bricked wii i have

    @ wes11ph

    may external nand programmer ka ba?
