    I wasn't sure where to post this, so I figure here is just as good as anywhere. Anyway, every once in a great while (I think it's only happened twice counting the most recent time) I get a message telling me that my Wii's system files have been "corrupted" yet when I turn off my Wii and turn it back on everything is fine. No save files are ruined, nothing on the Wii itself is out of place, my channels are all intact--nothing seems wrong. Should I be worried? Like I said, this isn't a frequent thing. I've only seen it twice so far, both times after using homebrew applications. The first time was when I injected a custom made EarthBound wad to play as a Virtual Console game the second time was just today after I finished playing Disaster: Day of Crisis through the Backup Launcher (I have a US Wii). When I was done playing I went back to the system menu and popped in Punch-Out!! and got the "system files are corrupted" message when I went to start up the game but it worked just fine after I turned it off and back on.

    Has anyone else run into something like this?

    Happens to me. Usually when it loads a game wrong or even in the menu itself. I'm not sure.
    It happened the most when I was trying to install the Mario Kart channel.
    Also, do you have a soft-modded Wii? Because I don't.

    Yeah, I have the Homebrew Channel installed and use the Back-Up Launcher occasionally. For all I know the Wii is getting confused because I'm running games from other regions on it and it was still stuff in PAL mode or whatever after I exited Disaster. I don't really know what to make of it. It's strange, but it really doesn't happen often.

    If you don't have any mods done to your Wii I'm not sure why you would be seeing the message though.

    This happens to me every once in a while.

    But my Wii's IOSes are all screwed up, I think, because in my efforts of uninstalling cIOScorp I ran IOS downgrader, that thing that lets you change your sys menu version and then I installed a .wad of IOS9.

    cIOScorp is gone (I think) but my wii has become slow, unresponsive, the settings menu doesn't load some times and the corrupt message thing too.

    The flat lands.
    Only thing I gotta say is first, install bootmii as boot2 if possible and make a NAND backup, because if you do that and what's happening to you gets worse, you can reinstall your NAND.

    This happens to me when i skip through the Wii channels quickly.It first started a couple of months ago after i upgraded from 3.2E to 4.0E but everything works fine as long as i don't skip through the Wii channels quickly.

    Happens to me to although it hasn't happened in quite some time. Just like Fiddlefaddle it happened to me when I go through channels quickly. I also seem to remember it happening if I click on the disc channel than back out and then click on the disc channel then back out.

    It certainly scared me the first time it happened (which was before bootmii was out). I went from being scared of it to trying to make it happen. Again I don't remember the last time I saw it.

    This happened to be once because my Mario Kart disk was dirty. I guess the Wii read the banner wrong and when it loaded it would be a messed up banner, therefore giving a temporary banner brick. Check your disk just in case.

    Hmmmm... That's an interesting theory. It seems kind of improbable, but I guess that might be why.

    A reinstall with the wad of your system menu usually fixes the problem

    Actually, something similar to this happened to me once. I put in the disk, the Wii tried to load it up, then said "Uh...no." and gave me an error. Turns out there was some crud, dust or something, on the disc.

    This happens to me every once in a while too, when I flip through channels quickly, using + and -. Incidently, how would one install bootmii on a LU64 wii?

    The flat lands.
    As an IOS. Boot2 if you can. Use the hackmii installer.
