Okay, so I hate to be a noob, but after searching this site and others, I have yet to come across anyone with problem quite like mine so I'll ask your advice. I've been running a soft-modded wii for about a year now. I've never had any problems with it, because I mostly only use one or two channels to load my back-ups from the usb drive ( neogamma for a while and then the gbx loader) anyway, I tried to install a wiiware game with the wad installer and I wasn't paying attention to my free blocks left so I went over. After I got the Wii system data full error and it sent me to the channel data screen I immediately started uninstalling channels to make room. In the middle of uninstalling "My Life as a King" there was a power outage in my house (stupid to do things like that during a storm I guess) After that, I rebooted my wii and got the same error maessage, but this time the channel menu was completely blank (not even showing the empty windows where files should be) so I researched a little and decided to format my system memory. after watching the 'formatting wii system memory' screen for 30 minutes I decided to let it run and go to bed. after 8+ hours I turn the tv back on and it's still formatting! so I leave it be and go to work, come home to find my little brother and his friend playing new super mario bros on my wii. Apparently it was still formatting so he turned it off and rebooted and put the game in and it plays fine after a system update... I freak out and go to the wii menu, the only things left are the disk channel, forcast channel, news channel, mii channel, shop channel, and photo channel on the wii menu. So I go to the channels menu in the data menu again, and the same problem, it's blank and freezes when I try to exit to the wii menu. I also can't click on the back button or the SD Card tab, though I can move my cursor via wii remote. All of the channels I have work fine, but I can't get into the channel data menu to do anything else... Long story short: whenever I go to the channels menu in the Wii data menu, it's completely blank and I cannot return to the wii menu or the screen just goes black and continues to play the little bgm for the wii menu. I also can't click the back button or SD Card tab. Formatting wii system data just goes on indefinitely without finishing. All but my factory channels are gone, but they work just fine. I have a US wii which is now running 4.2u My question is can I reinstall the homebrew channel without having access to the Channels data screen? I do have the new SD Card button next to the Wii menu button on my screen thanks to 4.2 being installed. Does anyone know of a way to fix this problem? Thanks for your time.
