    Right Behind You! Uh Oh!
    you should maybe try to use ANY TITLE DELETER to uninstall then re-install the CIOS's you have installed just to be sure they are'nt "broken"...just a suggestion...

    why do people insist on uninstalling IOS's ???

    seriously - just leave them in - they dont get in the way and installing a new one overwrites it - theres never a need to uninstall an ios unless its corrupt

    and by uninstalling the wrong one your risking bricking your wii - bye bye wii in 2 seconds

    I agree no need to uninstall an IOS or a Cios unless it is corrupted or have an issue , other wise you can over write if you need to [​IMG]

    actually theirs only two wads in your system titles if you uninstall them will brick you, the System Menu wad and its required IOS, if you delete them you'll be bricked for sure, I think anytitle deleter has protection against letting you do this, but i've never tried uninstalling them with wad manager, just sounds stupid to me.

    OK lets say i was stupid enough to uninstall the CIOS and now when turning on my Wii it was nothing but a blank screen

    is there anyway to fix this problem? or should i start saving my money?
