    My brothers wii came up with a screen saying that something was corrupted and it needed to be formatted. He formatted it and then tried to install the homebrew channel with the INdiana pwns and it says that the ios to do it is not on the wii. How do i fix this?

    He only needs to reinstall HBC. The rest of that guide would be pointless since cIOSes aren't deleted by formatting.

    Belive me: it does happen. You try to turn the wii on and right after the disclaimer screen you get a disastrous black screen saying theres some corrupted files and you need to format or something.

    Luckly i searched the internet before taking any measures.... and turns out that if you do nothing the problem maybe just go away

    I did nothing... and after happening twice the problem really did went away.

    I was on 4.1U and on startup, totally at random, it says, "the wii system menu is corrupted." Havent had it happen since I updated to 4.2. I dont think it tells you to format, but I could be wrong. I had to unplug my wii and then it would be fine.

    @techboy If he follows the guide he will update and not ever see that message again. Its just easier to tell users to follow the whole guide that way they have everything they need and it doesnt turn into these special cases.

    Kind of figured CORP was the issue. It's been answered on here many times. Launch a tool like DOP-Mii from Indiana Pwns or Bannerbomb, then install an IOS36 and IOS61. Say No all the patches. After that, try to install HBC, it should install fine.

    @TRushInfo: That guide won't work on his wii in its current state. The first step is to install HBC, which he clearly can't do right now.

    How do I get it to start the dol from Dop-Mii to start with the inidpwns it tells me that it needs an elf file?

    Renaming doesn't always work.

    If it doesn't work, use bannerbomb instead.

    It says that it is not a valid elf Ill try bannerbomb.


    When I tried it I was able to run dop-mii and I installed those ios and then when trying to get the homebrew channel on it stills says there are nonvulnerable ios and it cant install it.

    download cioscorps or maybe the new darkcorps...
    then use its uninstaller!
    then install hbc!
    use whatever exploit is available for you to do so!
    then install darkcorps!

    was it this message? [​IMG]
    you may have just assumed you needed to format it, then afterwards when it messed up claim the wii told you to do it [​IMG]
