    Your description of the issue is not very clear. You power on the console and what happens? When specifically do you encounter a black screen? How about posting a Syscheck? Do you have bootmii as boot2 or priiloader? Or how about a nand backup from before the problem began?

    It's not the system menu or the system menu ios since you're able to access priiloader and since you already tried reinstalling the system menu. I'm assuming you reinstalled priiloader after updating the system menu, otherwise you would no longer have access to priiloader and the hbc.

    Double check that you don't have a priiloader hack enabled that triggers a blackscreen. This hack arguably shouldn't even exist, but it does, so confirm that's not the case.

    After ruling out the above, I'm thinking maybe it's a banner brick? Launch mmm, or dopmii or Dop ios or any title deleter and CAREFULLY delete custom channels. If you delete the wrong thing you could full brick, so if you're not sure, Google it, and err on the side of caution.

    Also, if your friend recently installed a wad, it will probably still be in his wad folder, u could just uninstall the problem channel by uninstalling the same wad (again careful not to uninstall something vital).

    No nand backup?

    Reinstalling the system menu would've restored the original theme, so this isn't a theme brick either. Unfortunately since you reinstalled the system menu on your own initiative then exited the homebrew channel before reinstalling priiloader... you're pretty screwed.

    This is a good example of why you shouldn't guess at solutions because you've effectively made the problem much worse. This has evolved from a semi-brick to a full-brick situation. If you don't have bootmii or a nand backup I don't think this wii can be recovered. If it's a really old wii and is capable of installing bootmii as boot2 then it can be recovered using an infectus modchip, but it would be cheaper/easier to just buy another wii. Similarly, if you have a nand backup and no bootmii as boot2, you can recover using an infectus modchip but again it's easier/cheaper to replace the console. Heck if you at least have the wii keys something can be done, but this is dumped along with the nand so if you don't have one I doubt you have the other.

    At this stage, all you can do is test to see if by some miracle bootmii happens to already be installed on this console's boot2. Put the bootmii folder on a small/compatible SD card and turn on your wii (you can download bootmii sd files from modmii's download page 2 or from here http://static.hackmii.com/bootmii_sd_files.zip).

    If you are lucky, the bootmii menu will load and you can continue to trouble shoot this issue. If it doesn't load... well I'm out of ideas and I think there's nothing more I think you can do.
