Hello there. So, this is what happened:

- I decided to play my old wii (v4.1)
- Everything was doing ok, except for Mario Power Tennis (gave me black screen everytime) , and I saw somewhere on the internet that the game required to be launched with IOS222.
- I entered USB Loader GX, went to mptennis , and I selected "ios 222' in launch options or however it's called.
- Now Wii gives me a blackscreen upon startup, and won't connect to any wiimote. I can turn on the console using the power button on the wiimote,but afterwards it won't connect.
- All i know about this wii is that it is on 4.1 , and i was using USBLoader GX. I don't have any NAND backups or so.
- I tried:
>turning it on and right after pushing the power button i held the reset button : nothing happened.
>turning it on without usb stick / without sdcard / without both / with both : nothing happened.

I don't have any disc games here, because i started playing backups from usb as soon as i knew that the optical drive on this wii was broken/faulty.
I don't have a GC Controller either.

I don't really think that it is permanently bricked just because i decided to use that IOS(222). I mean, i wasn't trying to install anything, just trying to run a game.


Please,can someone help? Many thanks in advance.

Well go to the bootmii website extract the files to your sdcard and try turnon your wii... If you intalled bootmii via boot2 you can fix your wii :)


I tried that.... Nothing happened. Do i need to press some button or something else?

when did you mod this? Did you make a nand backup? Do you have it? Ios 222 won;t brick the Wii so something else was done. Is priiloader installed? Priiloader can take a second to initiate, when you power down hold rest and press power and continue holding rest for a few seconds (do 10 to be safe) what happens? If you are still getting black screens you will need the update through recovery menu using a GCN controller(savemii frii)

OOPS savemii frii need disc like the post says.hmmm

Well, i remembered something else : The same post said that i would need to turn ocarina on and off in order to use mptennis , and i did so, but i didn't had the file, so i connected the wii to the internet and downloaded it via USB LOADER GX. Game didn't run, i restarted wii and everything was working.
Afterwards, i was just thinking about what could i do and i entered the 'theme' section on Usb Loader GX. i saw like 8 themes, i didn't download any,just saw them on the catalog. I pressed + to go right and - to go left on the catalog. When it reached the first theme pages , i clicked - again and it gave me an black screen with some stuff written...
Restarted my wii, and everything worked normally. now, then i changed the 'launch with ios 222' thing, the game did not run and when i restarted it ,i got my actual state: Black screen, controllers won't connect.

I tried putting bootmii on the sd, powering up and holding reset button, hold reset button and press power button.... Nothing seems to work.
