When updating from 3.4U to 4.1, just for my understandings, will it become 4.1U or 4.1E?
WILL I EVER UNBRICK? Please HELP!!!
Hello everyone, I have a D2C with D2CKey installed and running 3.4U. Recently decided to follow softmod instructions, installed Bootmii as boot2, and installed the Homebrew Channel. Then I backed up my NAND as per step 2. Then I loaded the Wii system menu, and could see the Homebrew Channel. I could load and exit it, moved the channels from their original places and turned off the Wii.
When turning on the console the Wiimotes lost their connections, and can't even turn on the console. Bootmi loads, but when selecting the Wii system menu I see a black screen. I spend the night reading all the threads I can find in the forum , my wife is mad at me as I go to bed late in the night, but I'm still so desperate I don't try restoring the NAND.
Am I already fully bricked at this point? Should I simply go ahead and try restoring the NAND?
Next day I buy a gamecube controller and am able to run Trucha Bug Restorer to load IOS36, downgrade IOS15 and load IOS15. But when I run cIOS38 r17 installer the gamecube controller also stops working. Is the Wiimote a must for this step? Or is there a version that works with the gamecube controller?
After reboot I can load cIOS38, but it does not proceed. Is this the time to try restoring the NAND from the backup? Or should I try Inbuilt Recovery Mode, NAND flash or some other system update?
I'm kind of lost after reading so many different threads in the forum and too unconfident to try anything else. What do you guys suggest?
Hey guys! n00b here on these wonderful forums. So, I decided today that I'm going to try to softmod my new Wii. Yay!, right? Well, being a paranoid freak that I am, I set out to devour as much information and knowledge on the subject as I could, before I venture into my modding crusade. As I'm reading this TUT (which is wonderful by the way), I came across the statement above which kind of confused me. I understand about updating, but if you are on 3.3 or 3.4, do you update via the Firmware Updater?If you are on 3.1 you will have to update to 4.0 first, make sure you install the patched IOS60 first though still. Before you update to 4.1 make sure you have at least 250 blocks free or you will brick, install IOS60-patched first with Wad Manager using IOS249, then run Firmware Updater 4.1. If you are on 3.3 or 3.4 then you must update now - DO NOT install priiloader until you have updated as it will cause untold problems!.
Also, do you use the Firmware Updater for these versions as well?if you are on 3.2 or 4.0 you can update if you want and it is recommended that you do
Sorry for the n00b questions, I just want to cover my bases before I start. I did a search and turned up some information on the subject, but nothing directly relating to my inquiry.
what system menu version do you have?
yeah you can use the firmware updater,Firmware-Updater_4.0 for 3.1 update to 4.0
Firmware-Updater_4.1 for the rest of the versions
