    I'm too lazy to make a thread title here...

    So I bought my wii from a guy on Craig's List. It came with the home brew channel but the tard messed it up and the channel was upside down... Well I didn't care to much about it and just deleted the homebrew. We don't play much and this was about a year ago. I decided today to get on there and see what deal was. I noticed that the version was still 4.1u. Tried to update and I get error 32004 and figured the guy really f'd it up. I tried to format the wii and now the turds are flying...

    So what I want to try now is to get homebrew back but I can't really find the right stuff for 4.1u or remove it all together and update to 4.3u then hack it with smash stack.

    Right now I can't go forward and I can't go back...

    When I first boot up I get "unable to locate sd:/bootmii/armboot.bin" so I know I am missing part of the boot loader.

    If I let it sit it will eventually boot into the wii menu.

    I just don't know where to go from here... I think this might be better in the newb section but I figured it was such an odd scenario it might be better off here. If it needs to be moved please do so. Thanks!

    Ok 1st there is no benefits to have 4.3.....
    Introduce yourself and receive a link to the mod any wii guide and follow that from head to toe.....

    Ps the guy probably installed priiloader and had blocked online and disc updates which is a good thing. This is why you are prob getting error msgs when trying to update but that doesn't matter because you aren't going to update are you lol

    Sounds like priiloader is installed and blocking updates. it might also be set up to boot from sd which you dont have.. no biggie.. probably an easy fix.. you should follow the softmod any wii guide from my sig and you'll be fine.

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here

    If you're following the linked guide, best to (search first) ask within said guide.
