    Try downgrading to what you had before.

    Dont suppose you did a Nand backup when all was well did you?

    I have a mod chip in my Wii and i`m on 4.2e, still works so i dont think 4.2 upgrades disable mod chips .

    Did you get the mod chip installed, if so can you ask who did it to check it?.

    The 4.2 update takes away the ability to play out of region games on most modchips. It is not recommended to try to downgrade. If you want region free backups, look for a firmware update from the modchip manufacturer and/or softmod the wii.

    Yeah your pretty much S.O.L with that. The only way for you to play NTSC games now is to softmod your wii. Go to the recommended FAQ section of the forum and look for either messie's guide or shadowsonic2's guide. Read both of them and see which one is easier for you.

    I also have a wiikey2 but I stayed in loop for purposes like this. Im still on system menu 3.2. I wouldn't recommened you downgrading your wii. It probably won't even fix it. It might actually brick your wii instead. Good luck on the softmodding. oh if you were curious you can have hardmod and softmod at the same time. They will not conflict each other.
    Come to the Irc room to get help or just have fun

    Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.
