Help! Son broke USB Loader GX, just returns to channel menu
We've had a soft modded wii since last Christmas. While I'm somewhat computer smart, reading all the guides for doing the soft modding myself was intimidating so I just paid a guy I found on craigslist to do it. I brought him my wii and the hdd drive and we picked it up 2 hours later.Everything's been great for the last year. I can add game and album images but that's the extent of my knowledge but it's worked for us thus far until this afternoon.
My four year old son has been playing the wii quite a bit lately and we all thought he knew how to navigate through the menus (even though he can't read it's just two choices right- wii menu or start?) and we have the USB Loader GX forwarded to a channel to make it even easier. Until this afternoon. He ended up on the Home Brew channel but nothing was showing (I don't know if this is normal or not, we never use it). I had him push the home button and then select return to system menu which brings us to the main wii channel screen. I thought all was fine but now whenever we try to load USB Loader GX it just never fully loads.When we select it from the channel menu, we get the USB Loader GX screen in which we can select Wii Menu or Start. When Start is selected, we'll briefly see the USB Loader GX flash screen, like usual, and then the screen goes black for a few seconds, like usual, but instead of the USB Loader GX game menu screen it just returns back to the Wii Menu. What could he have possibly done?! It's very possible that he did something while in the Homebrew Channel screen before he told me he was in it. I don't see how I can try to load USB Loader GX through the Homebrew channel- was it there and he somehow deleted it?- but I don't know if that's really the problem as it does start to load from the forwarder. Is this an easy fix?!
I have tried to look through past threads and posts, at least I'm not the only one, but either solutions weren't given or the ones that were I just don't understand, especially since I didn't softmod it myself. I don't know what version of any of it I have, though I do think I remember it's a 4.2 or was brought down to a 4.2 or maybe it was a 4.2 but was brought down to something else?! It's a red wii if that's any help. There's also no SD card, just a hdd. Can someone please help me or direct me to an explaination that I might be able to understand and follow?
Thanks so much, my kids thank you even more (at least my son will once he's allowed to play it again),
