    accidentally updated after softmod!

    Hello guys!

    I'm 23 years old and from the Netherlands. Gaming is one of my most favourite hobbies. I have all 3 systems, and play the best games on each system. I just finished playing God of War III on my PS3.
    I wanted to continue playing Super Mario Galaxy 2, but then I encountered a problem with my USB Loader.

    First, a brief history of my Wii. I got my Wii a few years ago and had an hardmod done in February this year. Then I learned about the Wii Homebrew Channel and playing region free games and turning your Wii into a media player. And when I read some articles about the USB Loader, I was sold...
    I had firmware 4.3 before softmodding, that's why I ended up using NeoGAF's Wii Homebrew Tutorial, which took me step by step through all the fases. I succeeded it making it work.

    But a few weeks later, somebody accidentally updated the firmware, it was already on 4.3 and still is… But apparently it got refreshed or something.
    Now, when I try to start up Configurable USB Loader it says: ‘ERROR: Custom IOS 249 is a stub! Please reinstall it.’
    I reinstalled IOS 249 using cIOSX_rev20b-Installer, but nothing changed.
    Then I wanted to reinstall Configurable USB Loader. But unfortunately that didn't work either.

    Before try anything else myself, I thought it would be wiser to get some advice from other people. I hope I can fix this thing sooner rather than later.

    Btw when I use the Media Player from the Homebrew Channel, I can still load movies etc from the external hard drive. So that's relieving.

    Hello Maxi
    Obviously Neo Gaffs Tutorial didn't tell you to install priiloader and block online and disc update. It still sounds like you are able to use HB so take a look at Mauifrogs Mod Any Wii Guide (link below). This will write over what ever part of the original mod that you may still have on your system but at the same time hopefully get you up and running again..
