    Question Got a Wii little problem -_-

    hey everyone,
    sorry that my first post is asking for help but im really desperate and totally stumped at the moment lol.

    ok heres the situation..
    i was given a Wii to fix which had been softmodded, using Dogeggs' method (which worked great on my Wii thx ) and it also has preloader. now what has happened is apparently they tried to "update" some files and their HBC has stopped working.. so they decided to format the wii system memory and start again.. which they found didnt actually work.

    so here i am with a wii that has no channels other than the original Wii ones. and it gets better...

    every time i try to run a .dol or .elf file either from channels or from preloader it black screens and freezes to the point where i have to hold the power button in.. so that means no loaders, no AnyTitle deleter, no wad manager, nothing. preloader and system menu work fine. if anyone has any suggestions other than telling them to throw it out the window or beating them with a large object it would b greatly appreciated lol. heres some details.

    Systemmenu Version 4.1E
    preloader booting to 60
    no idea what IOS or CIOS are installed coz no AnyTitle

    Thanks in advance to anyone who has a read
    just let me know if more details are needed n ill see what i can find

    Have you tried running hackmii installer again to re-install HBC? I just don't see this in your text that you've tried.

    I can only guess though that the update and system format has somehow corrupted your IOS so that you cannot run any homebrew. It's strange that Hackmii installer won't run, perhaps the necessary IOS files are corrupted, like when cIOScorp is installed but somehow worse. If you had boot2 installed you could always try cboot2, that could bypass things better than preloader.

    It's going to be tricky to recover if you can't access any form of homebrew where you can affect change.

    Why oh why do people insist that formatting the Wii will be the answer.

    On the brighter side, at least it's not your Wii.
