    After using Brick My Wii, My HD no longer works (whodda thought?)

    Not new to this but I was upgrading from running neogamma r8 beta7 IOS249 Rev14 up to Rev 19 using pimp my wii. Everything worked before from my hdd to my usb stick. Now neogamma will not recognize either one and I have no clue why. anyone else experience this before? thanks.

    Why oh why did you use pimp my wii?
    As a great mod once said: "programs like pimp my wii are not worth their dirt and will drop you off at fail right before your wii dies."
    Just download the cios installer to your apps folder on your sd card and run it through the homebrew channel, though I recommend you stay on rev17 or update to rev20.

    I guess the first thing you want to do is to post a sysCheck, just so we can see how badly your Wii got pimped.

    Look here for sysCheck - http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tem-check.html

    Since user chose the FAIL route rather than the Wiihacks WIN method, moved to bricked section of the site (Now you have first-hand knowledge of why this tool is called Brick My Wii --- though yours is a milder case than some).

    so there's a cios 249 rev 20? google wasn't pulling one up off the bat. it's cool to just go ahead and install cios 249 rev 17? if you have good links to the files it would be appreciated. thanks

    Apparently neogamma r8 is the latest stable version so you could use that, personally I use wiiflow cause it looks much nicer, heres a link to guide on wiiflow if your interested, courtesy of ithian
