    Unhappy Unsolicited upgrade

    until some days ago I was happy with my softmodded 3.4E Wii which could play very well all my dvd (-R) backups launching them with SoftChip-r102. Then I tried to play a New Super Mario Bros Wii dvd backup but SoftChip-r102 wasn't able to launch it. However I installed Neogamma-R9b47 and it played fine.
    Now I'm surprised to see that I have a 4.2E, but I didn't make any upgrade myself, nor I noticed New Super Mario Bros Wii asking me to upgrade, and my Wii isn't connected to the internet at all.
    The problem is that after this "unsolicited upgrade" all my dvd backups don't work anymore, no one of them. I suppose my cIOSes have been messed up, so I think I have to reinstall them again. Since my Wii isn't connected to the internet, when I try to reinstall my previous cIOSes with WadManager as soon as I reach the point where WadManager asks me which IOS to use it stops working and even disconnect my wiimote making all the four blue leds blinking.
    How could I solve this problem?
    Thank you in advance for your reply.

    There is no such thing as an unsolicited upgrade. Whether the update is via disc or internet you have to accept it. You'll want to re-softmod your Wii, install Priiloader, and use it to block updates. You're lucky it was only 4.2 and not 4.3.
