Time to ask for help
Hi guys, I've been reading for a couple of days before I attempted to hack my 3.4E Wii, but now I'm stuck.
TBH I thought the soft modding would have been easier, I've managed to install CFW on about 11 PSP's before, so wouldn't class myself as a total n00b to the modding scene. Also chipped my GC a while back.
Anyway, I got HBC, that was the easy part. It was after trying to install a cIOs that I've got stuck.
Done step 3 in here: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
Seemed fine. Got Preloader working fine. When attempting systemenuhacks it says "hacks for your system menu (v386) cannot be found"
My main Wii channels menu is getting the corrupted message, but I can boot into HBC and Preloader holding the reset when powering up.
I'm looking to downgrade to 3.2, but I couldn't configure my Wi-Fi properly before I lost the main Wii menu.
Can anyone give me some freindly advice as to where I'm going wrong?
Thanks in advance
yup u got a semi brick 1st try to reinstall preloader through hbc if that dont work use anyregion changer or reinstall your system menu using wad manager and a sys menu wad then u can configure your wifi in settings then
reinstall your cios- cios on any wii.rar
Thanks for that.
Got any links for a new sys menu wad? Or doe's that go by the same rules as not asking for ISO's?

Cheers Dogeggs. Will give this a go later tonight.
OK guys, went straight for WAD Manager 1.4 to install the system menu, but got error (ret = -1022)
What should I do now?
Hmm. I'm not going to mess with it anymore until I get some more info.
I've now lost HBC but got preloader (v.029) still. Got a message sayin "Error autobooting systemmenu! SetUID failed!"
IOS is v50 and systemmenu is now v0.
I understand having IOS v50 must be bad. Only one other person on the search has had it, and the suggestion was to re-install pre-loader. The outcome wasn't recorded on here.
I have a gamecube controller, so may be able to use the savemii hack. But the only games I have are Mariokart, Wii Sports, Wii fit and Wii play. How can I tell if they have 3.4e on them?

ios50 is not 'bad'!! it is used by the system menu 3.4, delete and you will have a full brick. have you tried reinstalling preloader?
I didn't because it seemed to work OK. But now I can't because I don't have HBC. Unless there is another way?
Ignore that. I have HBC back again. Tried to re-install preloader, installed, and still on v50.
Will try the system WAD again.
