Moved to the bricked section of the site. You may want to check out some of the sticky threads and see if you have boot2 on this unit (power it on and see if the LED flashes twice in quick succession or not).
Ok, I just bought a used wii that was softmodded, it powers on to a dark/black theme (I am new to the wii, and only saw the stock white theme before, and this isn't it).
There are a couple USB loader channels, a homebrew channel and a neogamma channel.
Everything on that end looks like it's working but every time I try and go into the Wii Options -> Wii Settings the wii hard freezes and I have to yank the power cable.
I have no idea how this was softmodded so I can't answer any questions. I have no idea if there is or ever was a nand backup made and put on the sdcard that came with it. I was told it was 4.2U but I can't go in and verify it now. Can this be fixed? Can I restore it to stock and resoftmod it or is it screwed?
ANy help would be awesome and repaid in beer!
thank you for moving to the correct section.
It's not bricked technically though, it does work, just the settings menu doesn't. let me go read and look
No boot2, the wii goes solid green when I power it on, no blinking
no, the slot only blinks blue once.
Now, and bear with me here since I did say I was new to this, I am assuming I need to resoftmod it, correct? If so, I will go read the stickies on that but would ask your recommendation on how to proceed for that.
I owe you one sir!
It would be safest to just start a guide as if it was a virgin Wii, since you don't know what is on it. Any old softmods will be overwritten, so everything will be up to date. You can find several guides in the Recommended Guides section, but I suggest this one.
