I have a problem. I'm having a problem with my Wii remotes. They won't sync with the console. I can still boot to priiloader and homebrew channel and navigate with a GameCube controller, but that's about it. I've already done hours of googling for solutions, but NONE of them have worked for me. I've tried unplugging the console for 1 hour, removing the batteries from the remote for 2-3 minutes and clearing the synced remotes from the Wii. Are there any homebrew solutions to fix this or am I SOL?

Hello.:)

Have you tried it on the Safety/Health Screen and/or when you boot in the Wii System Menu ?

Are your Wii Motion Controllers original Nintendo ones ?

Thank you.:)

I have

I have tried it on the Health & Safety screen and all the remotes are genuine Nintendo remotes.

Thank you.:)

What happens to the Lights on the Wii Motion Controller when you try to re-sync it please ?
Does all 4 lights flashing ?

Did you use USBLoader GX and maybe turned on NAND Emulation to FULL ?

All four lights blink on the controller when I try and sync them and I never recall using USBLoader GX.

Can you please tell us the exact Steps how did you do this ?
Thank you.:)
First, I have the Wii fully powered down. Then I turn it on, wait for the health & safety screen to show up and then press and hold the red sync button under the SD cover for 15 seconds.

Would you be so kind and try it again with a longer time (up to 30 Seconds) please ?
Thank you.:)

And an other Thing please: Did you installed some cIOS/WAD or something before this happened ?
I do not think that the Wii´s Bluetooth Modul is broken because your Wii is normally booting.:(

So, the 30 second trick did not work, and I do remember installing CIOS to IOS249 and IOS250. I think I only installed a wiiflow forwarder so that I don't have to use the homebrew channel but that shouldnt affect the controllers.

Hello.:)

I would also suggest you this yesterday:

Please go into Priiloader and boot directly into the Wii System Menu and try it again.
(As i understand you correct,you have always tried it only on the Safety/Health Screen ?)

- then hold the Sync Button on the Wii for 30 Seconds and release it.
- please press the Sync Button on the Wii once and press the Sync Button on the Wii Motion Controller and WAIT until it has sync again.

Thank you.:)
