    restore SD as main drive for homebrew, bootmii and others.

    Hi all you helpful people.

    I softmodded my wii (4.3e) a while back, then i decided to re-softmod it so i could backup all my old GC games on my HDD.
    In the process of trying to get my loaders to work with my GC games, (yeah i followed guides) I found a way to use my HDD as a primary drive instead of my SD-card.

    But I didn't get my GC games working on my Wii and I then decided stuff it, I can live with still just using the discs, which i can't because of DM and maybe Devolution. (yes I have installed mios V10, still frezzes when i pop the in a GC disc while in the system menu)

    Now I have this problem: I want to restore my SD-card as primary drive for bootmii and homebrew and I want to remove DM, Devolution and everything that i really don't need, I'm afraid to re-install the softmod before I'm sure that it will restore my SD as primary, or that I will be able to re-install everthing from my HDD.

    What i need is either reassurance that my Wii will work after i re-softmod it or some help on what else to do

    here's my syscheck, just in case.

    Spoiler



    I hope there's someone out there who can help me.

    (sorry for the grammar, I'm Danish)

    Your sysCheck looks good to me, no need to remod. Sounds like you haven't set up DIOS MIOS and Devolution correctly (you only need one, btw). There are guides for both of these here. You can search for them pretty easily. As for how to set your SD card as the search path, open up the HBC and hit I think the 1 button. A menu should pop up and you can select the either the SD card or the USB drive. BootMii already uses just the SD card.

    Devolution is a boot.dol (or loader.bin if using it with a USB Loader like USB Loader GX) run from the SD, it makes no modifications to your NAND. Being that DM does its more likely DM has caused the issue you're describing, I too had this problem with DM at one point which is partially why I switched to Devo. Nevertheless, following dniMretsaM's advice should hopefully fix your Wii up

    Thank you for your reply, I've been using the guides to first install DM and when i couldn't get that working i tried Devolution, I guess i'll give it one more go.

    If I can't get it working, do you know if i'll be able to play my old GC games after a remod?
    didn't know about the HBC 1 button menu.

    Again thank you for your reply, it's greatly appreciated.

    As long as you reinstall MIOS v10 (get it from NUS Downloader or ModMii) or the cMIOS used by the ANY Wii guide, your retail discs should work again, at least this was the case for me.

    Remodding won't do any good (I think I already told you that). Your current mod is just fine. The DM guide is pretty fool-proof. But if you run into issues you can always ask a question on that thread.
