    In a pickle with Homebrew/SD card etc...HELP!

    Hi all

    Ok, so I haven't touched my wii since 2010. I had everything installed, homebrew, boot mi, preloader etc and everything was working fine. Anyway, recently I wanted to sell my wii to a friend. She bought Just Dance 4 and found that it didn't work! She was unaware of homebrew etc...stupidly she tried to update the Wii - however, she was unable.

    I took the wii back with the mission of turning the wii back to its factory state but in my haste (tried hack mi installer but had frozen screen at disclaimer) I 'erased' homebrew. Older dvd games such as 'wii sports' still work but 'Just Dance 4' still gives me a black screen. Added to that my sd card (which was working fine with homebrew installed) is freezes when I try to load in the wii menu.

    I just wanted to get the wii back to it's factory state in order to sell it on - any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not sure which version of homebrew was installed - I followed a guide 3 years ago and now I can't remember any of the specifics!

    On the SD card I have cI0s38 rev 14 installer, firmware updater 4.1, hack mii installer 1.2, priloader v0.1, truncha bug restorer and wad manager v1.4 if that helps.

    You will have to install the HBC again in order to virginize your Wii. Follow Chapter 1 of the Softmod ANY Wii guide to get the HBC installed. Then have a look HERE.

    Thanks for your response cjizzle, much appreciated. I've re-installed Homebrew without probs. Just a quick question, I've noticed that there is a slight risk of bricking the wii if I uninstall the softmmod. With the softmod the way it is will my friend be able to play new (original dvd ) games such as Just Dance 4 without having to update homebrew or anything else?

    You should not have to update anything as priiloader will block online updates and disc updates as well.
    So, Yes! Your friend should be able to play all original wii disc's without any updates interference.

    As for updates to the soft mod....you might have to , if they improve the softmod, but it looks like everything will remain the same for sometime.

    Ok, just tested 'Just Dance 4' and it just give me a black screen. When loading original games from dvd is there a special way to do it with the softmod?

    Are you saying it fails when trying to play off of the disk, or trying to play off of USB ?

    If USB, you have to set the cIOS to 224 (at least the thread linked below says it works for Just Dance 2, I presume that the same will work for Just Dance 4 as well.

    You will have to follow the entire Softmod ANY Wii Guide in order to be able to play newer games. You only did chapter 1 before.

    I cant give you percentages if thats what you are asking for. If you follow the guide carefully you should be fine.
