So I haven't installed any WADs or anything in months. from reading around here, I have what is probably a "Banner brick"? All I've done with my NTSC-U Wii lately is play Mario Galaxy 2 and a little Kart. I have system menu 4.1 downgraded from 4.2 (all updates done according to directions on this forum. not official updates), which I did a looong time ago. I seriously haven't hacked my Wii in forever. Plus, it's acting very inconsistently. At first I noticed a few days ago that sometimes the Wii would freeze up at the warning screen, the "Press A button to continue" prompt would never appear. Eventually it would usually come on, and I could go back to playing Mario Galaxy 2. But today, it started getting stuck consistently. I tried for half an hour to turn the Wii on, and it would NOT get past this screen. Then finally it starts working, but now it says my system files are corrupt a few seconds after I get into the Wii menu. Every time. It loads up consistently now, but each and every time it gets to menu it has that error! And I truly have not installed anything new, so most of the guides which tell me to uninstall the offending wad are meaningless to me! I have no problem doing anything with my Wii. If i act fast enough and try to load a game or enter a channel or menu before it crashes, then it won't crasjh at all. It's only siting on the system menu for more than 2 seconds or so that messes up the Wii. I'm pretty much fully loaded... I have a mod chip, I have bootmii installed as boot 2, I have full access to homebrew channel, I have a NAND Backup from a year ago... so I guess I just need to know where to go from here to get my Wii fixed since there is no specific wad for me to uninstall?? Anything I can do that would keep all of my save files intact? Help! Thanks in advance!!
