    hi i tried to install darkcorp but it said i need to get the xml file so i had to reboot and i couldnt get in to system menu (i was in preloader). so i went to homebrew channel and uninstalled the wads manually and accidently uninstalled ios 257 and now i just have a black screen on startup. i cant get into preloader or homebrew now. i dont have a gamecube controller (i can get one if i have to)
    is there a way to fix this
    i want a way where i dont need a gamecube controller but if i have to then i will get one
    tnx

    The problem isn't IOS257. You uninstlled the IOS the system menu runs on. (30 or 60 most likely)
    Unless you have bootmii as boot2 your Wii is perma-bricked. Congratulations.

    There's no such thing as IOS257. The item located at "IOS257" is MIOS, which is responsible for GameCube games (definitely not what you mean).

    If you uninstalled the System Menu IOS (IOS30, IOS50, IOS60 or IOS70), you're fucked for good.

    If you delete the system menu("IOS2") then you also have a nice next-to-unfixable brick.

    Somewhere.
    Yeah, you most likely uninstalled your Sytem Menu or System Menu IOS (30, 50, 60 or 70). The only way you can fix it is if you have BootMii. If you want to check if you have BootMii, remove your SD card and turn your Wii on. After the initial flash of the disc slot light, you should see some very brief flashes. If you do see these, your Wii has BootMii, and it may be possible to fix your Wii (if you have a NAND backup). If you don't see these flashes, you just murdered your Wii.

    If you have BootMii and a NAND backup, you just need to put in an SD card that has the BootMii files on it, and boot into the BootMii menu. Now from there, you can restore your NAND backup. The other option you may have is that if you can get into the BootMii menu, you might be able to run HBC, and then run DOP-IOS or something and reinstall the IOS that you killed.

    If you have bootmii installed it should show up on every boot unless you have the CFG autoboot set to 0. Go into your bootmii folder and change it too 5 and see if it shows up;.

    You're house!
    1st of did you have bootmii installed as boot2? If not you can't access it unless you get the files that will load it

    Even if you can't access bootmii, you can fix your wii using an infectus chip to reflash your nand using your nand dump. Its a relatively complicated procedure though, I would recommend sending your wii + nand backup & keys to DeadlyFoez. He'll be able to fix this wii for sure, and he does a great job taking care of his 'clients'.

    that would work if he could access priiloader, but chances are he uninstalled his System Menu which would've removed priiloader (priiloader is also removed when the SM is re-installed)

    If you couldn't install bootmii as boot2 when you first do it, can you go back once your done and boot from elf again and install it then? or if you couldn't do it the first time you never can?

    Yeah I figured that, I skipped it as an IOS cause it seemed useless.
