    Fully Bricked Wii by a complete Noob trying to softmod 4.2U

    The last time I THINK it was working was when I was on Bootmii trying to back up NAND. I went off to do something else and got back because I knew it was going to take awhile. After it was done, I believe it went back to the Bootmi settings page, then I accidentally pressed the backup again. I wanted out so I held the power button til it turned off. Now it won't boot to system menu. It will only boot to Bootmii and HBN via Bootmii. I tired to restore the NAND but that didn't work. Please help!

    First verify that your bootmii settings are set to autoboot the system menu.
    Load BootMii Configuration Editor in HBC, set autoboot to system menu, delay 0

    If that does not work you will need to reinstall the system ios and menu. Test wadmanager from HBC, your wiimote will probably loss sync. If it does you'll need a gamecube controller, unless you have preloader installed.

    Are you sure you hit backup and not restore by mistake? Anyway, since you have bootmii, this wont be to difficult.

    You'll need to install IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].zip first
    then
    4.2u-RVL-WiiSystemmenu-v481.wad.zip second
    from wadmanager using ios249
    If your wiimotes dont sync use cboot2_wadmanager_1.5_mod.zip

    Thanks man, greatly appreciated. The bootmii configuration didn't work but the other method worked.

    I was trying to softmod my Wii 4.2u so I could play NMBS. But I didn't know that I needed to patch the game. I patched it and the game works after an update (BTW, is this safe, updating Nintendo from NSBM or even from Wii Sports Resort). Wii Sports Resort works too, so does that mean my Wii is softmoded?

    typically you do not want to update from disk or Nintendo. Also your wii is defiantly softmodded.

    Use preloader or other method to disable disk updates.

    Again, I am a complete noob. Once I get preloader, I should be all set for now considering the Wii and playing backups correct?

    hehehe, How can I get preloader? Thanks.

    Extract 4.2u-hacks.zip to sd:\
    Extract Preloader to sd:\apps\Preloader\
    Install preloader from hbc
    Then hold reset and boot
    Enable only the hacks you desire, like disk update blocking.

    You should be set for playing backups. You may come across a game that loads to black screen someday, in which case you just need to manually update the ios the game uses.

    Thanks man, one last question. I promise. =D Since I updated via NMBS and/or Wii Sports Resort. There shouldn't be a problem with my Wii due to that update right?

    Thanks again for the great help. This forum is awesome by the way. Very great support.

    sorry im a newb as well. can i just verify what has been said. ive hacked my 4.2 wii with the guide, but have been worried since that if the kids put an original disc (that includes and update) in it, it will brick my system.
    if i install this preloader, will it prevent this happening?

    Hey Mauifrog, can you answer me this question please, I have wii softmoded to 4.1, HBC, Preloader and GX USB loader installed. all works great. Kids got a copy of Disney SIng it. can play through the disc channel fine, but when try to copy to HDD and play via GX loader get a black screen. do you know what I can do to fix this?
    Cheers
