    Hello there, I've a problem to ask you guys.

    I had a Wiikey modded NTSC Wii version 3.2 ; and I updated to 4.0 through this guide: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=144835

    I used it fine for a while, but then I tried to play a backup copy game of my own (NTSC). Couldn't make it run (probably from the disc...) so I tried the original copy I had (PAL). It didn't run also, so I tried the NTSC again... But when I restarted my Wii, I got the message "The System Files Are Corrupted...". The message is also corrupted, I've to swing the wiimote a bit to make it readable.

    I don't have a NAND backup but I've the things installed ready in that guide. What can I do? I tried to install preloader 0.29 again but i still get this same error. I can access both bootmii and preloader fine, but still get this error upon selecting Systemmenu.

    Edit: I only use my wii to play games, and want to use homebrew channel maybe to install VC and WiiWare games. I don't really knew what I would lose upon installing 3.4 or 4.0 directly, so I installed with that guide just in case. If there's a way to return things back to normal 4.0 or something, let me know about them too please. Thanks.

    Considering that you are using a modchip, there should be no issue with playing backups. When you say you got the error screen, was that as soon as you started up the console and you could not get to the menu?

    Try using wanikoko's cIOS downgrader. That should install a brand new system menu so it should work again.

    It worked, thanks [​IMG]

    Now I've a 3.2U Wii. I want to update but since I've Wiikey, I don't really need to use the guide eh?

    And if that part is correct, I want to erase all the useless stuff I've installed with the guide, how can I do that?

    Considering that you are using a modchip, updates dont really apply to you.

    Not true. He said he wanted to install VC and WiiWare games.

    Try using Wanikoko's updater 4.0 or 4.1.
    I used the 4.0 updater from 3.2 and it worked like a charm.
