    not needed, try to reinstall a nand backup... most likely your conf file is damaged, had it once... reinstalling a older nand backup saved my ass [​IMG]

    So wait, is the problem you bricked the wii or you simply don't know how to leave the Priiloader menu?

    I bricked the wii because in the corner it says no system menu found and it boots only into the priiloader menu when i turn the wii on and no where else.

    Did you enable any Priiloader hacks? If so, try disabling them.

    If that doesn't work, what's the last thing you did when it still worked?

    if the boot2 files are the same version ones, you could try to take the nand from the other wii and convert it to the one that isn't working...

    If you can possibly boot into the Homebrew Channel using Priiloader, you can use a WAD Manager to re-install your original system menu.

    If your HBC still works,Use ModMii to get a sysmenu 4.1 or 4.2 (NOT 4.3)
    also make sure to have the IOS files
    Then use Multi-Mod Manager in HBC
    use the wad manager in it,and install the files
    PROPLEM SOLVED!!!!

    If he can access the HBC, the first thing he should do is install BootMii if he hasn't done that yet and make a NAND backup.

    Installing the system menu will erase Priiloader, so if anything's wrong there's no return.

    just use wad manager 1.7 to isntall the wad of system menu so you can return to hbc after isntall of system menu and system menu ios, and reinstall priiloader before you leave hbc, and make sure to use the latest version of priiloader(0.6) as it could brick if you use 0.5
