How do you restore your wii to its original state? I really should have found this out before modding it but I want to know. Also, are game saves and things made to the wiis nand memory or is some of that saved on an external usb hd if you have one for games. There really should be a sticky tutorial on how to do this or at least one saying look at the guide you are going to mod with. I didn't read all 288 pages. Thanks.
why do you want to virginize?
and they save to the nand, unless you use uloader (or something else that saves to either the SD or USB) and you change the settings to
I just posted this reply but it didn't post so If I wanted to, repair, update, sell, a problem etc.
I have soft modded my Wii using the instructions in Post #1. But with the channels installed I can't play PAL games only in Black and White. How can I fix this. I have read I need Backup Launcher and force NTSC but how to do I get that channel. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for this guide. It was very helpful. I have the HBC up and running. :)
Hello, I am new to using forums so I appologize if I am posting this in the wrong area. I have had a Wii for a couple of years and had it soft modded for me about a year ago (not sure how it was done). It worked great for the last year, I was able to use it to backup my disks onto a usb drive, play SNES emulator games etc. My son got a new game for Christmas that asked to do a disk update. Usually my kids know not to do that, but I am guessing with the cousins around etc. that something got updated by mistake. Before I had: Neogamma R8 beta 15, USB loader GX, Wii Flow and Nintendo and SNES emulators as well as the Homebrew channel. Now the only thing I can do is play the nintendo emulators or play original disks that I had before, Neogamma and USB loader GX just give me a black screen and Wii flow just loops back to the wii channel menu and the Homebrew channel is gone. After looking around on this site for several hours I have come to the conclusion that I need to redo the soft mod and am planning on using Maui frog's guide unless someone suggests a different solution. I just wanted to make sure I was interpretting the guide correctly. in chapter 1, step 2 it says to prepare the SD card. I just want to make sure I understand this correctly. Up to this point, I have used the SD card to install Hackmii and then the Homebrew channel and bootmii correct? At this point does "prepare the SD card" mean to remove the SC card, reformat it, and reinsert it into the Wii so it is clean in order to do the nand backup? If this is all correct then I move to step 3, this may seem stupid, but I want to make sure I understand correctly, you press the power button 3 times and the reset button twice? I am sure that is what is meant but wanted to verify that is what was meant by the different color coding. Thanks in advance for any help and advice.:confused:
So i properly followed the first step of installing BootMii and HBC.
I am now on Step 2 - hacking the wii, and am stuck at the "ModPack and UpdatePack section.
It tells me to extract the files into the SD card so I extracted ModPack-AnyWii to the SD card.
Next, I extract the UpdatePack to the SD card, but it tells me if I want to overwrite the folder "wad". What do I do??? I have read this thread a million times but cannot understand it thanks.
Thank you so much!
