    Well, can't be a good thing. At least you're seeing the screen.

    Ouch. I was afraid of that. Thanks for letting me know so I don't sit here just aimlessly trying again and again and....

    ...and to anyone else, let my foolishness be a lesson:
    Do not panic! DO NOT REFORMAT!

    Yeah, you all probably already know that. *sigh*

    Not as many as you would think. Not an uncommon error. I think it's because we are so used to our PCs. Now, you should be able to at least have a regular 4.2 Wii that can play game originals. So, did the reformat leave you with a lovely white box or can you go ahead and just let Nintendo do their dirty deed again to you?

    i just found this

    For those of you who do not get the hint already: THIS UPDATE DOES NOT AND WILL NOT DESTROY HOMEBREW. An updated HackMii installer that will work around all “issues” caused by this update (except for bannerbomb, which is being looked at separately)including bannerbomb (thanks comex) is in testing (this time I’m testing it, instead of working on it). None of the changes in the update are insurmountable; in fact, as you’ll note if you read this post, they’re pretty lame. What this means is that you definitely should NOT panic and start patching stuff. Certainly do not update using any hacked versions, unless you’re a pirate (in that case, you probably already have a system inconsistent beyond repair anyway). Patching the System Menu is absolutely completely unneeded. I repeat, there will be a fix out in the following day or two, one that simply involves updating HBC/BootMii using a new installer, without any patching or manual updating nonsense. There are only three sane courses of action at the moment, from best to worst: 1) do not update, 2) update only the shop and its IOS using pristine, unpatched versions from NUS, 3) update and lose homebrew until the new installer is out. Anything else is sheer insanity and will get you and your Wii into trouble. Especially quick fixes and stupid workarounds released by people who do not know the meaning of the word “testing”.

    I don't quite understand what you're asking. It did not brick me. It just seems as though after my panicked reformat I have a virgin Wii 4.2 All my original games play just fine. Back-up copies, well, let's just say I now have a case full of lovely shiny coasters. I think I'll hold off on using them as Frisbees though. I have faith that someone will figure a way around this.

    Good, I was just checking to make sure you had a functional regular Wii. So, hang on, many groups are working on this.

    Yes, I do, thank you. I have played a few games to check. Unfortunately I lost my saved games. Doh!!! I just also happen to have a 2 yr old niece who likes shiny objects. So I feel safer using back-ups than the originals. That and I can be a lazy-ass and take one disk out, toss it on the table, stick the next in. After all, where else would my niece be grabbing disks from? So I guess I need to take those few extra seconds and stick em up where she can't get them.

    It's not just 2-year-olds that can endanger your expensive game discs. I went to a USB external HDD after seeing my 18-year-old nephew, throw a couple of game discs on the floor, stack them on top of one another on another occasion, jam them along side some miscellaneous stuff...couldn't take it anymore. Teens listen to your rational instructions just as well as 2 year olds do, too.
