    Formatted Wii (previously hacked) won't accept update or Letterbomb

    My Wii was hacked before - I don't know what specific software was used, wasn't the one who did it. The person took the SD card out and with them and all the files, leaving me with a halfway modded Wii. Homebrew wouldn't load so I formatted the Wii (from system settings) and loaded Letterbomb onto my SDHC card (Kingston 4GB). Found the Letterbomb in my mail but the system froze when I tried to load it, did some reading and found out it was because I needed to update to 4.3 (currently running 4.2).

    However, when I try to update, I get error 32004 - Nintendo's website says that means either the internet connection is unstable (I unplugged my modem/router and let them sit, and plugged them in again, didn't work) or that unofficial software has been run and they have no solution.

    Is my Wii now bricked? (Sounds like a bad thing, from what I've heard). Am I SOL?

    No you are not bricked. Formatting the wii really just screws you out of all of your game saves. It sounds like whoever did the mod was wise enough to put priiloader on there and enable the hacks to block updates. If you wii was fully modded and removing the sd card is the only problem you HAD then all you needed to do was to get another sd card and replace the apps that were on it. If you know what apps you had just get them and your wii might work like it used to. Formatting does strange things sometimes though.

    As stated in OP, I did not know what was done previously, and have already formatted the Wii. What can I do now to clear this 32004 error and get it to accept the update so that I can load Letterbomb?

    Or, alternatively, is there another hack that I can run off 4.2 - since the update is currently the issue.

    But it says:

    Works with 4.3u/e/j/k

    So will it still work with my 4.2?

    I don't think you are having the same problem as th op. Unless u are on 4.2 and trying to use letrerbomb. Instead of hijacking this thread you should ask the question you have in the guide u are following.

    Well my wii was hacked with letterbomb before and then formated.
    After it was formated I can not install the letterbomb again. When I click on letterbomb to install it on the wii the console get's stuck. I have to keep pressed the power button for it to power down and power on again.
    Sorry if I wasn't paying attention to the first post, I guess is half of the initial problem.
