Hi folks -- My friend's wii appears semi-bricked. We first used the Twilight Hack to install HBC 1.0 about a year ago. Over Christmas we updated to 1.0.6 with the online update function in HBC and then downloaded some new homebrew. Specifically, the uLoader. I patched the cIOS 14 (iirc) to get it up and running. Chrystal bearers played like a charm. Then we ran New Super Mario Bros. It played fine until we restarted the wii. Now we have the "System Files are Corrupted" errors whenever we try and do anything. Wii System Menu will start up, and I can go to the Disc Channel, but launching a game or going to Wii settings and the system locks up and/or gives the error message. Did I screw up an IOS? If so I wouldnt begin to know how to figure out which one. BootMii is installed as an IOS and Boot2, but we don't have a good back up (Doh). Unbrick options seem to be as follows: 1) UUD - I looked into this and I felt over my head -- I downloaded the UUDv4 package from Demonoid and I was overwhelmed -- Do i start with teh Startpatch 2.3 wads? LCUD? Or boot the UUD iso right away ... I read a guide online but was still left a little confused. 2) Infectus/Savemii -- I don't have either of these. 3) Pay VGCrepairs.com $25 to unbrick the wii. So here's my question. We both have launch day Wii's that are at 3.2 with HBC 1.0.6. I haven't installed anything new on mine in a long time. Can I create a back up on my wii with Bootmii and restore his wii to my NAND back up? What would be the implications? He'd lose the VC games he's purchased, but what else? Or is this a massively stupid idea? Thanks for your help. This is my first post, but I've used the stickies countless times. I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I might have royally screwed up my friend's wii so I'd like to make it right.
