    Failed update from udraw - semi brick?

    Christmas gift of udraw. I did not hide the disk fast enough after loading on the USB loader and the three year old started it from the disk and started the update. The update failed when I pressed the eject button...which likely did more damage.

    I can't find the HBC channel, so that is likely gone. Says system 4.2U. Wad Manager won't start. USB Loader won't start.

    I did all the softmodding myself, but I don't know where to start evaluating the damage or how to start trying to fix it.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

    re-softmod with the guide in my sig, im guessing it updated you from whatever you had to 4.2, which removed your modding.

    Note: Priiloader is not an option, it's mandatory (and would've avoided your problem in the first place).

    Do you mean the tutorial titled "Softmod for ANY 4.2 Wii!"

    Don't know what "in my sig" means. I tried to link from your signature and your profile and that's all I found.

    I don't think Priiloader was around when I did this originally, but I will get it now.

    Thanks!!

    This worked. Thanks. Now have bootmii and priiloader and we are back in business. Clearly the problem wasn't too serious, but your help saved me hours of trying to figure this out!

    I'm using USB Loader GX v1.5. Can priiloader be used to load that instead of the system menu?

    What does 'in my sig' mean?

    sig = signature, usually found at the bottom of every post of a given user (who has adopted one; not all have signatures, nor links in their signature for that matter). On the other question: yup, look here.
