    i soft modded my wii years ago with the twilight hack. All of a sudden now it goes to the health & safety screen & when i press a it loads for a second and then i gwt the system files are corrupted. i dont have a nand backup since i never really fooled with it since the twilight hack except to update neogamma. is there anything i can do to fix my wii or do i have to call nintendo. thanx

    Did this happen after installing a channel wad?
    Can you load maintenance mode by holding + - at the health screen, then press A while holding + -.

    Do you have PriiLoader/BootMii installed so that you can launch a Title or load up Homebrew Channel?

    Sounds nasty. Hold the reset button when turning the console on, perhaps you do have Priiloader and just forgot about it.

    OK, then go to the wii settings and do a system format.

    Yes, you can run everything. Just wc24 and message board is disabled, so letterbomb would probably not work on 4.3. HBC, bannerbomb and such should all work on a working wii.

    well you need to run the wad manager. but homebrew channel doen't work. the only option is using cboot2 if your wii has bootmii

    You can only save them if you can load HBC. You can try to use bannerbomb to load hackmii.

    Formatting should fix your issue with the wii system menu not loading. Your other issue with the black screen when loading stuff, that is a different issue.
