    4.2U Semi Brick Advice reqd please !

    Hi All
    Long time forum prowler, not a mad POSTer thats for sure, SWEET SITE Tho !

    ANYways, running 4.2U softmodded Wii that I did via Dogeggs guide 2yrs or so ago, , daughter dropped a friends game in it this Xmas, and hit OK to an upgrade / IOS change of some kind.

    No HBC, USBLdr reports something I knew : " Requires unstubbed IOS222 or 249 ", just before a big ole stackdump SH*TOGRAM , Sys Menu still shows 4.2U. Disc channel still werks ( uuh, Yay. )

    Insert question here : Bootmii as Boot2, does this mean when u hit HOME button when in Wii menu(s) that there is a Bootmii option ? I DO NOT SEE BOOTMII this way, please advise alternates for this n00b.

    I do not have a NAND backup ( at least not from my Wii ) will others work ?

    Not sure where to START with the unbrick, please point me in the right direction !

    Please und thanking you Gents

    You are not bricked. Follow the Softmod Any Wii guide in my signature. The 4.2 upgrade removed all your cIOS's.

    Alright, here is waht you should do: there is a link in my signature to the softmod any wii guide. Click on it and follow all the instructions. After doing so, everything will work again. And yes, you can start it even if it's not a virgin, because it's a guide for any wii, even modded ones.

    Hi All,

    Well, it looks like I've hit a WALL and would like to ask for further advice, please.
    Here is what I have done, in order, using micro SDHC which I formatted :
    - loaded hackMii via BBv2 for 4.2
    - installed HBC and BootMii as Boot2
    - Made a NAND b/u and backup up *.bin etc as directed
    - NOTICED WHEN I RETURNED SD CARD TO SLOT AND BOOTED WII UP : rolling video, sure looks like it says something about Boot2 DOL Loader b4 MMM pops up
    Chapter 2 - hacking - i switched to SD card as directed
    - Wii boots up to MMM ( don't need to access HBC ) ( ! UH OH ? ) I try to install Priiloader as directed, and when I reboot Wii holding reset whilst pressing power, no Priiloader

    PLEASE ADVISE, did i go south using SDHC until I read to NOT USE ONE in Chp 2 - Wii Hacking ?

    I should add some more info, I chose not to downgrade to 4.1, and JUST ran checksum on ModPack, since i did not unzip updatepack.

    I'm sorry Gents, my train of thought sure seems BUSTED, I did, I believe, DOT for DOT what this guide told me, my details are sketchy
    Chapter 2 Wii hacking
    - I formatted 4GB SD card, and unzipped Modpack to SD and ran mds to checksums on Modpack, not Update pack as I chose not to downgrade
    - Insert SD and boot up Wii to see rolling screen Boot2 DOL loader rolling around until MMM fires up
    - Part 1 -WAD install, I do as guide says for installing all WADs, 24 of 24
    - Part 2 , 4.1 downgrade, did not do
    - Part 3 Priiloader, APP Mgr > select Priiloader, hold be / press + priiloader installs and locks up, reboot whilst holding reset and no Priiloader, rolling black viddy screen, can once again make out DOL Loader b4 MMM boot up

    I hope this is more cohesive, please advise when you've got the Time !
