I AM A NOOB ALERT, Thank you.
OK long story short. I had a 4.3U wii. BLACK. mauifrog guided softmod worked. I modded it as a pal system, since i want games in multi5 spanish. WAS THAT WRONG? I now have no system settings due to a semi-brick. OK I thought I would start over. Not so. I cannot letterbomb again, that freezes. I load onto my sd card bootmii nand backup i made. bootmii loads, but i cannot select anything from bootmii menu. NOW I AM LOST. What do i do just go to step 4? Am I fully bricked now? Am i screwd? I just wanted to softmod PAL wii, so i could play in spanish. I was a psp modder and i thought this would be as easy. i guess 4.3U means Usa as in no pal. not sure. can someone help... please explain thoroghly I am a bad noob!!
ok i got thru to this part and now Iam stuck..
You want me to select folder for my region... AS STATED I had a 4.3U then I modded for a PAL system but lost my settings.. OK NOW I just used this MMM system menu DL in your guide. WHAT REGION DO I HAVE NOW??? I WANTED PAL, WHAT DO I DO???

I´ve tried to fix my Wii which has a semibrick with the manual in this forum.
Everything was fine ´til No. 4. First it said:
Downgrading IOS15 to V257 *****
Preparing downgrade of IOS15 – using v523 to downgrade to v257
Getting IOS15 v523…
Loading IOS15-64-v523.wad from SD card
Could not open file: sd:/IOS15-64-v523.wad
Could not open file: sd:/wad/ios15-64-v523.wad
Please check, file not found.
Error getting IOS
(Error -1): downgrading
Press any button to continue.
After I have checked Google I installed IOS15-64-v257, IOS15-64-v523, IOS36-64-3351, IOS38-64-v3867.
Everything worked fine, but at the end it said: es_addtitlestart returned (-1035).
I have installed HBC and Bootmii and Preloader....
We bought the Wii in March 2008 in the States. Then I sent it somewhere for softmodding. Everything worked good so far, until I made a update with a German DVD. Ever since, only original US-Games were working. But I am not able to enter the Wii-Settings anymore. I have tried out so many things already and finally I was on a good way today. But it did not work, as described above.
I am really not very good in this "Wii-Stuff". So I have no idea if you need more information.
I would really appreciate if someone could help me and make my Wii works like before.
Thank you in advance.

I got a problem. When i didn't mod my wii i had 4.3e SM. and i modded it using mauifrogs guide. Since it worked for me i ddn't bother to check the Wii settings until i had a problem with a game. and now i cant access it. it says to open opera something like that. Im a bit confused because when i did a syscheck it says that i have a 4.0/4.1E SM. I didn't notice this until later. Did i downgrade it? coz ive read that downgrading would brick my wii. And so to fix my problem is just to follow this guide then? Just wanted to be sure. I started at step 4 since i had Bootmii and HBC. I just need your expert advice on this. THANKS!

I know you have recieved many of these, but I actullay just made this account to thank you again for everything. I was a total noob at softmodding but your softmod guide helped my hack the wii and when it became semi bricked again your guides came to the rescue. I now have a partitioned HD with ISO games and wbfs partition for the wii. It was everything I needed for my wii. I again thank you for your efforts in this guide and especially the clarity of it. You can honestly never go wrong.

Hi everyone, the best brick help forum I've ever seen! I can't fix my wii with anything I've read though. It's a friends wii who bought it in Indonesia. I don't think it's modded in any way, but it's somehow become bricked in that I can't access the system settings, and therefore cannot softmod / install HBC as I can't get the MAC address. When I go into Setting I get the Opera error with "marc:FIX/US/ENG/index01.html". I don't have a disc from Indonesia, so I can't update it either. Though I have updated it using Mario Sports Mix, so I'm pretty sure it's 4.3 (note I couldn't access Settings BEFORE doing the update as well!) Please help he's one of my bosses at work! ; )
Thankyou for all your excellent help!

Am I able to mod it using ModMii if I were to get one of the required games? If only I could get my MAC address!!

Use method 2 in this guide. Btw, you only need to know a wii's MAC adress if it's 4.3

Red_Gh0st Thankyou for your help : ) I've just updated my post so I'm at 4.3, will method 2 still work?
