Dear GODS, help me PLEASE! Re-hacking after a hdd failure :(
I have searched and searched and tried to piece together what I need to do, and then when none of that worked, tried going back step by step until I even was trying to softmod it like a virgin. Please help me walk through how I can get my wii back up and running!
Hacked wii a year and a half ago, running everything off a usb drive (FAT 32 and WBFS) Love it, especially wiiflow and wiimc. Then my hdd crashed about two months ago. I rescued it, and fumbled my way through resurrecting my wii. A week ago, my hdd failed BIG TIME. I ended up having to write the entire disk with 0000's, then fresh formatting it to FAT 32.
Here I sit with my freshly FAT 32 formatted hdd and my wii that has been softmodded (originally using messie, but then using maui frog's two months ago) for over a year and running successfully. I'm hoping to run everything off of FAT 32 this time.
I tried using mauifrog's softmod any wii thread, using the instructions to update an already softmodded wii. Didn't work because I don't have mmm on my virgin hdd. So I went back up the thread to installing on a wii that has homebrew working. Got mmm working, but it won't mount my hdd. Says unable to mount device: usb. I *know* it's compatable and it is in perfect condition now.
PROBLEM 1a: If I try using the MMM-58-61 containing bannerbomb2, nothing comes up in homebrew at all.
My bootmii boots to a black screen. Tried doing the threads about fixing the hackmii errors (same thing?), but I no longer have a small SD card Only have micro's. Can I do this with a usb? Somehow I doubt it because there is no USB icon to click on :P
Editted to add: 4.2u
PLEASE HELP ME. I swear I'm not being lazy!!!

Have you tried to use a micro sd? I have used them more than once and they worked.
Yes and it just gives me an error or a fail.
Forget I ever posted this. All I had to do was reinstall the program files to the apps folders. The old channel forwarders even work. I WAY overcomplicated this.
