problem with softmode
Happy New Year everyone!!!!
I installed breware softmode I inadvertently updated homebrew and it wont work. When I go to homebrew and run bootmii it brings up 4 icons on the screen but I can't choose any because it appears to lockup. All I can do is reset the wii. How to I boot from sdram so I can remove the updated homebrew? By the way I just purchased the wii Dec 30/09
Thats BootMii starting up, which is a good thing. Means you have the ultimate brick protection. You can either use a gamecube controller or the Wii Console buttons [power to cycle and reset to choose] to navigate the menu. I would recommend making a NAND backup with that program so you can restore your Wii if it ever bricks. If you do not want to see the bootmii screen anymore, just go into your SD card and delete the bootmii folder that is on the root.
