    wii got formatted, help please

    Yeah, I formatted my wii (cuz it removes "all" info) and attempted to update, but it stopped midway, gave me an error, and now i can't reinstall hoomebrew at all. I mean, i've looked online, but the thing is, i need these files to get rid of all the info and cios es, but I need homebrew to run these files. what do i do, i'll be very sad without my hacks. I have flash drive I can use for usb loading. I tried to do letter bomb and stack smash, but no luck.
    help please?

    My wii acts like an unmodded wii. i'm a moderate noob at this, so i don't know what boot2 is, however, before i formatted my wii, i did use bootmii to get setup.

    I cannot access homebrew or bootmii. When i attempt to reistall, i get the message that says to demand your money back if you've been scammed, a little 1 shows up at the bottom, and i press 1 on my wiimote, but it's frozen there. I cannot access anything homebrew. I looked at the guide, however, I can't run syscheck, because i have no homebrew.

    You're right... you don't have the full story. The full story is that I killed Col. Mustard in the Living room with the Nunchuck, substituted as a garrote wire.

    But seriously, I thought that formating my wii would create what has been afore dubbed as "a virgin wii." Why, you ask? because I once had a half brick occur where it would not read any disks, so i formatted my wii, and sent it in. My warranty held, because, as I had assumed, the hbc was gone, and i got a perfectly working wii. i wanted to restart with a virgin wii, and get the newest stuff, and get rid of all of the old stuff. so, that's what i believe to be all of the story.

    It only removes accessable data from the console, not things installed into the operating system.

    I haven't a clue as to what is gone and what is there. I can tell you what the heck it is i see. Also, is this becoming a joke thread?

    Ok, I turn on my wii, and it is exactly like a regular wii. There is 0 homebrew that you can see on it. It shows that the version is 4.3U. If i try updating, it stops midway, and shows an error. nintendo says try and update again, or call them. No matter what I use to upload Bootmii, it gives the whole diagnostic message thing, and then shows the screen saying that if you paid for it, you've been scammed. The little (1) shows up at the bottom, then it freezes, or rather nothing happens. I used Stack smash as well as LetterBomb, and both stopped at the same screen showing "If you paid... press (1). " I'm noobish, so I don't know what the full story might be. I can take a vid of my wii and show you all this if you want, although, it'd probably be easier for you to just ask me, because I really don't know.

    The only thing that was different that usual i guess is that I used a program called "Pimp my wii" to install wad files. I heard that the program was reliable, so I let it update. I found it here. That's probably why I can use the shoping channel.

    So, yeah. for non-modding personnel, my wii works like a charm, just like you got it from wal-mart fresh from the box. For my tastes, it is sadly lacking in softmods, and the ability to be softmodded. however, if a virginitizing program is out there that can be run like bootmii (using the letterbomb or stack smash methods), then I would be happy, nay, ecstatic to have such a thing. *sigh* too bad twiizers haven't figured out how the wii is put together in the software way, then i could just re-install wii on my wii.
