I uninstalled HB incorrectly. Is there hope for me or is my Wii soon to be bricked?
Hi, I installed Homebrew beta 8 using the Twilight hack almost two years ago. My Wii system is 3.1u. I just played around with it a little but haven't really used it much at all. I installed a few Wiiware games and played a few burned games.
I hardly ever play wii anymore, and I mostly want to use it now to watch netflix. I needed to do an update before using the shop to download the netflix channel. Basically I just wanted my wii back to normal.
I went through and deleted the homebrew channel and all the of the other games that I had installed. Then I formated the system. Before I upgraded the firmware through Nintendo I figured I better get on here and see if I was going to mess anything up.
I found the "virgin" guide here: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...ii-virgin.html
I also see that I may have broken a rule or two here: http://www.wiihacks.com/wiihacks-new...-never-do.html
I know my answer is probably somewhere on the site or in one of these threads, but I haven't found it yet. I don't need to keep homebrew or any hacks on the wii, I just need to return it to original so that I can do the nintendo updates and not worry about bricking it in the future.
Thanks in advance for the help.
I just went ahead and did the update and it works perfectly! I may be back in the future to try some more Wii hacks, but for now I'm just happy to be able to watch netflix on it.
You could have just updated the shopping channel then download netflix.
