Thread: Virginze my wii, quick question!!

  1. #1

    Virginze my wii, quick question!!

    My wii isn't brick i dont think but have never been able to get to work correctly after softmod. Didn't get the answers I was looking for in previous post, most likely its me. Read through pages and pages os posts on virginizing and didn't find what I was looking for. I don't think a softmodding is for me so I just want it back to factory.

    Basic question. I just bought my wii so it came with 4.3u. After softmodding, it shows i'm running 4.1 Do i follow the 4.3 guide or 4.1 guide. Thanks guys, i appreciate any assistance.

    You are not very good at following directions are you? There is no reason to be on 4.1 if your wii is brand new. You must have missed that in whatever guide you followed. You have formatted your wii, which is another mistake! You have been asked to post a syscheck so someone could actually try to resolve some of your problems. You have been informed that "virginizing" is a bad idea, but you seem determined to do it. I have answered this question for you already in one of your other posts. When you have a full brick you will only have one person to be pissed at. Wiihacks tries very hard to help, it's up to you to accept the help or just move on.

    Skellinator:
    First: the Softmod Any Wii guide states that downgrade is option because it enables bannberbom v1 and v2 which I have read to be helpful. No where does the instructions say to NOT actually do a downgrade.

    Second: I formatted the Wii before reading these threads, noob mistake now I know, but isn't that what a newbie forum is for? for noobs to post their mistakes to get assistance instead of just smart comments from helpful ppl with nothing better to do at 4am in the morning. This is the REASON I decided to virginize my wii. There are people who want to be helpful to answer simple quests for noobs who don't know what they're doing. Then there are helpful ppl who rather leave long as comments and waste not only their own time, but other's time to read which doesn't lead anywhere. As far as doing a system check with syscheck v2 as recommended, I'm working on that but it freezes at the exact same spot every time, so you can see why I might be a little frustrated.

    Third: You never answered this question. My earlier post stated I wanted to know which guide I should use to resoftmod my wii, you said to use the version my wii said. See, I did follow instructions because I do want to this to work, but still the resoftmod didn't work. Never have I asked a question about my system to virginize. I'm asking to be thorough so I DON'T brick my Wii you helpful person.

    Finally: your a really great person. I just wish I were capable of being grateful and listening to what was being told to me. (had to make sure if you couldn't tell from my sarcasm in responds)

    I know what you mean that the threads are hard to read!!!
    I tried a few times before managing to carry out a full complete and working softmod on wii 4.3E. I would say to update completely from nintendo and then you can remove the channels after the update to put it back to normal.

    I have soft modded around 10-15 4.3E/U wiis now and have not downgraded any of them and so far all games have worked ok for me. If you have any queries just pm me and i will try to help if i can. (I am in no way an expert but will help if i can).

    OK, the guide does not say why downloading is or isn't a bad/good idea. I guess I should not expect you to have seen all of the discussions on that topic.

    Yes this forum is for people to help others who have made mistakes or are having issues. I don't know where you live, but according to the timestamp on my screen you were the one on here @ 3:36am. You were having issues about 5 days ago with GX and were asked to post a syscheck so someone could help you. If you are having problems running a syscheck don't you think it would be a good idea to ask for some help on that?

    I did answer your question, I said to follow the instructions for the system menu that your wii is showing that it is on. Your issues may have to do with whatever you installed in the first process. Without that syscheck we have nothing to base any of our answers on.

    You probably should re read the rules too, some of the language you chose to use is inappropriate. I can handle the flaming but would rather not have people having to read profanity in it.

    EDIT:
    The way you talk to Skell is what you call ''jerky'', and don't expect him/us to take everything you say.
    He was only trying to help you, and if there's no appreciation or respect for that, then it might be better if you just...go away.

    Wow, we got a real winner here. Thanx for trying to help skell and hopefully you won't let this one ruin your desire to do so. Some ppl honestly think the world owes them everything, and that our only purpose is to sit here and be insulted.
    I would say anyone helping this guy from now on is pretty much fail.

    I was really mad and angry, especially because Skell took the time to reply to him once more. I couldn't do it.
    I might sound relaxed in my comment, but I wasn't. At the end, it was tempting to say something way more powerful, but I dealed with ''go away''.

    ....... ok... soooo.. The profanity is for sure a little over the top... but we can all understand frustration right? But the approach to the problem can also cause more aggression.. from what I gather, Skellinator was trying to help previously... As far as his first post in this thread his comments seem discouraging... Shouldnt we be encouraging others to learn and help them understand this stuff a lil better? Im new to all this also and can understand how frustrating it is when you feel like your about to break something, or your struggling to figure out what everything means/does.. Also.. Telling someone to move on or go away doesnt help anyone.. I understand standing up for a buddy, but from what I see Skellinator can handle it himself.. Dont think he needs others to chime in with non-helpful things to say.. And if it's that bad, then simply choose not to respond.. Seems thats the approach most people here take anyways..
    [SPOILER= Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here]Shift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1

    Disclaimer:
    First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site (wiihacks.com) or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one person’s opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Let’s get started!

    [SPOILER="Outlook On Forum Rules "]Now I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away… It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... It’s still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with “speed reading”...

    [SPOILER="Why we have rules on this site"]The rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. I’m only going to hit a few.

    Conduct - We know it’s the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bully’s/and plain jack ass’s... We don’t like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so don’t do it.

    Piracy – This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We don’t want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big “N” (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.

    Personally, I don’t care what you do... I don’t care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. It’s your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.

    We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I won’t allow a poor decision result in losing this site.

    Cheating – Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.[/SPOILER]

    There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant... [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “So you Think You’re a Hacker”]Warning: Spoiler below is a rant. [SPOILER= "Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"]Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol

    The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant[/SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “Need Help?”] That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...

    We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…

    Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= "Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"]Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.

    Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..

    Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!

    Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....[/SPOILER]
    More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out![/SPOILER]
