    Just bought a 2nd hand wii already soft modded

    Hi I`ve just bought a wii which was already soft modded. Everything was running fine and was playing backups from disc.... until the missus ran the nintendo update. She said she took the sd memory card out 1st in case it buggered anything up! lol ! Now the wii is running on 4.3E. Put the SD card back in and the Hombrew Channel is still there but when you try to run a backup from disc through NoGammer the screen goes black and you have to reset the console. I have tried to have a look on the sd card but the computer will not read it and says it needs formatting. (I havent formatted anything btw). It looks as though you can access the WAD manager ect. So is there a way of restoring it or back dating? Or will I need to get hold of a copy of lego indiana jones and re-mod it?

    I`ve read about restoring the nand backup. But because it is 2nd hand i dont know if one was created or where it would likely to be (or how to restore it for that matter).

    Any help in getting it back to booting back ups would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi.
    That happens to you is normal, when you upgrade to 4.3 Nintendo delete items you need to load backups (as CIOS).
    Thank goodness you had the latest version of Installer Hackmii not deleted you the Homebrew Channel.
    What you should do is to patch the IOS necessary and reinstall the CIOS.
    For example you can do with the application Pimp My Wii.
    This application patched / installed IOS and install CIOS.

    Sorry for my English, I'm Spanish

    Thanks. So do i start from the "Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed" part of this guide? I`m guessing so but not sure if i should try and grab a copy of Lego Indiana Jones and start from scratch?

    I`ve just realised I`ve started this thread in completely the wrong place!! Don`t know how I managed that!... Noobs eh... Who`d have em?!!!!

    Happy new year wii folk!!

    Probably why the mods havent replied.. Maybe they'll move it to the right place for ya.

    Im not and expert on all this.. Ive just been lurking and reading alot... ALOT.... lol... I modded my new black wii with 4.3u and along the way found alot of helpful things and read about of other peoples issues.. so i guess I learned a little..

    I believe if you follow the guide you'll be fine.. or do some research on this site to make sure.. The answer is here somewhere.

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here

    Talking 4.3e

    Hi
    My daughter did the same to my wii, I carried out the complete soft mod for 4.3E again using indiana jones and it now works perfectly no problems.

    Ok i`ll try get my hands on an Indiana game. Could see if i could rent it.

    Just tried looking on the sd card again and now i can access the files. Not sure what i should be looking for on there but cant see anything obvious that there ha been a backup file created.

    Does anyone else know for certain whether I can sort this out without Indiana Jones' help?

    Did I miss the part where you mentioned you had a modchip? If so then forgive me for closing this thread. This section is for hardmods only and not softmods.

    Just follow the 4.3 softmod guide. Ask all questions there.
