    So, I registered in these forums hoping for a solution of my mess...

    I'm using a Wii with USB Loader GX. A problem I always had was that Kirby's Return to Dreamland would always just get a white screen after the first cutscene. I looked for a solution for this and in a page it said that I should install "d2X cIOS". I installed it in an empty IOS slot and configurated the game to load that IOS (252).

    The game entered well, but the Wiimotes wouldn't even work. The console didn't detected them even if I resynced them. So, I turned off the console. Because it didn't work, I tried using another IOS (251, I don't even know what it was installed in there, just wanted to try). Same issue, except this time when I turned off the console and turned it on again, the Wiimotes wouldn't even sync there.

    I used Priiloader to just load straight to USB Loader GX, because it was annoying to always select it from the Wii Menu. Is the problem related to not being in a Nintendo menu/a game? If so, how could I get it to boot to that without having a Wii Remote?

    I'm kinda noob at this, so it's kinda difficult for me to understand what I did wrong. Sorry if I put this thread in where I shouldn't...I really don't want a bricked Wii...:blush:

    Hold reset when powering on the Wii and use the power/reset buttons to navigate to System Menu and boot it, then you should be able to sync your Wiimotes.

    Make sure you're holding it as you press the power button, and keep holding it for a few seconds.

    I hope you see this since you answered this in 2017, but I’m having the same issue but when I try to navigate with the power/reset button, all it does is go back to the main menu, or it turns of. Help please :)

    So I am having a similar issue with a modded wii, I need to use priiloader, however whenever I boot to priiloader, if I press reset nothing happens and If I press power it just turns off.
