    A Few Homebrew App Issues after 4.2

    Hey, I'm new here so go easy on me. : P

    Anyway I've read over the newbie sections and I couldn't quite find the exact information I was looking for...Guess I should explain my situation and then ask my question.
    About a year ago I modded my Wii using the bannerbomb method which involved downgrading my (at the time) 4.0 system to 3.4.
    Anyway I recently updated my Wii to version 4.2U using a safe updater....Before the update I had tried to play a burnt copy of Monster Hunter Tri but my backup loader kept giving me a 002 error so I gave up.

    About two weeks later with my now version 4.2U wii I decided to try again which brings me to problem number 1.

    My backup loader (gamma v.03) does not work. I get a black screen and my Wiimote shuts off leaving me with no choice but to restart my Wii. So....I went on teh internetz to try to get to figure everything out. I read that that version of gamma was extremely old and outdated so I figured I might as well try a newer version....try and guess what happened...Yep, black screen again.

    I then decided that maybe it was just the file and not the Wii so I scoured the internet yet again for a Wad Version this time....This brought me to problem number 2. My Wad manager DID start up but my Wiimote dies and screen freezes right after I select IOS249. (I have also tried newer versions of Wad Manager, including the newest which still gives me the same issue)

    In a nutshell my questions are....

    1. Is there a backup loader I can just put on my SD card that works on Version 4.2?
    2. Is there a WAD manager that I can just use for version 4.2?
    I really dont feel like completely remodding my Wii and starting from scratch. I suppose if thats the only option then I might have to....
    Also one final thing before I (hopefully) recieve any advice.

    (I'm not sure if this is even relevant but....) I do sometimes purchase Wii games instead of burn them and I've read that messing with the IOS's will prevent me from playing purchased games.

    (Will Edit post if needed)

    EDIT: Wad Manager doesn't freeze if I select IOS254 but all the WADs I try to install give me a ret-2011 error

    Sounds like that updater wasn't so safe after all, as your symtoms are typical of a wii console that has been unsafely updated to 4.2. Look into resoftmodding with one of our 4.2 guides.

    Is remodding my only option? If so what should I do first? Clear my SD card?

    I'm not really sure...
    There arent any RE-modding guides are there.

    : ( i dont even know where to start.


    (sorry for being a noob)

    There are 2 softmod guides for 4.2 in the guides section. You probably lost bootmi and your homebrew is basically gone, as well as the ios249 being stubbed. You should start from the begining and do exactly what the guide says to do, including formatting your sd card fat32. You can always back that old data up to the pc, but yes you need to resoftmod.
