    I'm currently on 4.0, upgraded via kongsnutz's method. I have IOS249, IOS60 and IOS61 installed.

    I've got an odd issue. I noticed that I had a VC game, Super Metroid, which I legally purchased and downloaded through Nintendo, that wouldn't copy to my SD card. When I hit Move, it worked, then gave me the error that "The data may not have been moved." As Super Metroid was a small game, I didn't worry about it.

    I later found I had another game that was WAD-installed and took up a lot more space with the same issue. When I couldn't move it, I attempted to Erase it. The Wii promptly locked up- it kept spinning as if it was deleting for a half hour, and I could move the wiimote, but I couldn't do anything to stop the process. I eventually had to pull the plug.

    When the Wii came back up, the game was gone from the menu. I went to the Channel management screen, but the icons never load and if I back up it freezes with a black screen.

    I went into WAD Manager, and tried to uninstall through it. It said "Deleting title...OK!" then "Deleting contents..." and locked up there. Had to hard reset.

    Same thing happens if I try to go to the SD card menu. It tries to load data from the SD card indefinitely. I know it's not a problem with the SD card being corrupted because I tried another card, same result.

    I'm guessing the VC title isn't fully uninstalled and preventing the menu from loading. I can still play all my games, go into the shop channel, launch homebrew can I fix this?

    Formatting isn't an option as I'd lose homebrew :/

    if your menu is freezing up and wad manager is freezing up, im just gona guess that it has something to do with your ios files. try doing a downgrade so all the ios files will be overwritten?

    You didn't install bannerbomb to your nand did you? I know my SD menu from 4.0 sysmenu will freeze with bannerbomb on an SD card. I haven't installed BB to my wii to test the theory but I would imagine the same.
