    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.

    Wait... The gc thing requires a working dvd reader...
    Conclusion: you got hard brick and its (almost) impossible to unbrick it!

    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.
