    Messed Up Big Time when creating a thread title.

    I used the banner mod exploit to mod my wii, worked great. Installeld cIOS to load games direct. Works.

    I go to mod my brothers wii. The banner mod doesn't work. Had to try a lot of different things, but I got it to work. Go to install cIOSCORP_v3.1 from xbins, and it makes HBC upside down. Couldn't figure that out. So after installing cIOSCORP the games still don't load direct. So I tried installing other IOS and cIOS from xbins. Honestly I tried all these in this folder.

    After this nothing will load from HBC (homebrew apps) even ones that worked before. So HBC is upside down and no homebrew will work. This is where I think I made my biggest mistake. I tried formatting the wii, thinking it will bring things back to factory but it doesn't. Now the banner mod exploit freezes after i click YES.

    The wii us 4.2u and Priiloader is installed and working if that helps at all.

    I've been trying to fix this now for over 6 hours, and i have done lots of reading. I know now I messed up by messing with IOS files. I should have just dealt with loading games from HBC.

    Yes, there is a multitude of FAIL here. A simple sofmod using one of our guides would have been sufficient. Cioscorp is for advanced users and will only serve the purpose of playing backup Disks through the disk channel. Formatting the system memory is never recommended. At this point you should find the guide to virginize the wii, then read before trying to install things, because you have simply gone about it the wrong way.
