    4.2 nightmare

    Sooo, I decided to try the safe install from 4.0U to 4.2U. Everything seemed to be going fine, but I wasn't watching for a moment and when I looked up it was back at the Homebrew Channel.

    Wii still says 4.0U, so I hit BootMii and did a NAND backup (I always get 1 verify error even after running ten backups, and my SD card (wii branded) has no bad blocks as far as BootMii is concerned. is that ok?)

    Just to be silly I hit System Update and now am at 4.2U. Bad idea. Homebrew still worked correctly, but usb loader/usb loader gx/wiiflow fail with a black screen of doooom! I cried a little bit right here, and I'm 35.

    Sure, I read that BootMii needed a gamecube controller to restore the NAND from SD but I didn't think it would REALLY need one. I was wrong. Cried some more. I have EVERY Wii game on HDD (Thank you Gamefly)...it was a very, very sad moment, and I was feeling really stupid.

    Somehow I found We Hack Wii / USB Loader with a guide on getting things back to normal with 4.2. I downloaded the wehackwii files and skipped directly to step 6 (do not pass go, do not collect $200).

    I don't have an SD card reader in the same room, so I saved a lot of time by using FTPii to get things situated. (and luckily, it still worked!)

    After all of that, everything is back to normal except WiiFlow which says I need IOS249. Hopefully I can figure that one out again...

    So, if you're just nuts, you can really still hack the wii with 4.2U. I have a second Wii still on 3.2 just in case things had gone bad.

    FYI you don't need a game cube controller. The Wii power and reset buttons are next and enter in BootMii :P

    gamecube

    Yeah, that works for getting through the menu, but when I tried to restore from SD it said you must hit A, B, X and Y to confirm... didn't work with any combo of power, reset and eject :P

    4.2u Problem

    I have used this guide to successfully update 2 wii's already and they work perfectly fine. Attempting it my third wii is causing some problems. Before I ran the update I made sure to make a back up with bootmii. I ran the update and everything went according to plan. All of the other mods are working properly but when I pop in Band Hero disc (as I have done with the other two wii's and it work perfectly) and it tells me I need to update the wii but I checked the system menu only to find that it is already updated. I have tried to restore the back up but for whatever reason that is not working. So, I read that other people have also updated their wii using the disc channel option and it worked fine for them. But I am skeptical, updating via nintendo just sounds like a dumb idea and only a few people have done this. Basically my question is Should I try updating via the disc channel? Why is my bootmii back up restore not working, Can I get the restore to work? I am at a loss and I don't know what to do. My other idea was to make my wii a virgin a start from scratch but even this seems problematic since I can not do this with v4.2. Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    This is not a thread for help but since your problem is easy to fix just update your IOS as thats all the disc is wanting to do.

    You must be on a really old version of bootmii as mine works fine without a game controller
