    I have a Wiikey installed and the 3.2 update on an NTSC Wii.

    Lately I have been getting "The System Files are Corrupted" after I pass the Health Warning. This happens on every boot without fail (not random).

    The only conceivable reason I can think of for this, is that I have been installing/uninstalling a number of WADs using Wad Manager lately.

    I am able to autoboot with a disk, so I used AnyTitle Deleter to remove any WADs I have installed lately (they were all WiiWare titles). Unfortunately, I am still getting the error.

    Any ideas?

    *UPDATES (from thread)*


    I have not upgraded or downgraded my firmware lately, nor have I tried to using an autoboot in order to fix the problem. Is this the next best step?

    Unfortunately the error is not random for me... it happens on every boot.

    I have not installed any homebrew.
    The only thing I have installed is about 3 WiiWare titles lately, all of which played without error. This error came up about a week later.

    I have left it unplugged for an hour or so, and it is still getting the error.

    It would be awesome to get this fixed in a way that leaves my saves and other data intact... but if necessary I am ready to wipe it out and start over... Best method for this?

    Tried to go into maintenance mode (+/- held then A) mode did not work for me. [​IMG]

    *MORE UPDATES*

    I have successfully used cIOS Downgrader to reinstall the system menu to 3.2 (I was already at 3.2 to begin with!) This did not work.

    I then tried cIOS Downgrader to UPGRADE to 3.3... and the same error still appears.

    Not sure where to go from here.

    Hmmm, no I haven't. What would you recommend? Upgrading to 3.3 or downgrading to 3.1?

    I suppose there is an autoboot iso out there for this?

    Hmm. It seems to me like your system files are corrupted.
    If I were you, I'd try uncorrupting the system files.

    Wish I had thought of that!

    The weirdest thing is, this seemed to have come from out of nowhere. I installed a couple of WiiWare games... played them for a while... no problems.

    Then one day... bam.

    The error is consistent. It happens every time. And I have tried about 50 times. I have also left it unplugged for a good hour, and the error is still there.

    Are you saying that cIOS Downgrader will brick my Wii, or that my Wii is bricked currently?
