    Help needed urgently regarding Upgrade

    Hey every, I was running my wii on Homebrew for the last year, My daughter invited her friend around who brought with her an original mario galaxy 2 - when i walked in the system was updating even though i turned the internet off, Anyway when it had updated ( i had no chance of stopping it was @ 99% ) it delted my homebrew channel and also blocked wad manager and any other wad file i had ! - now it wont let me re-install homebrew or anything, when i click on it it just shows a box where the channels are with a ??? on it, then it wont load, how can i fix this , any help appreciated very much.

    hi pob, i appreciate that , but would this work, it doesnt say anything about systems that have already had homebrew on and wiped due to update, isnt this for fresh starts? I may be wrong

    Well if u use bannerbomb for system v4.2 u have to access from sd card menu from the wii menu as it wont work in the data management and also it is useless to unplug the internet as the update is inside the disc so it would be best not to update via game disc or nintendo as it would delete all homebrew and upgrade ur wii to system v4.2 .

    if u dont know how to install homebrew for system v4.2 , follow this link http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...y-4-2-wii.html or http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tem-menus.html , as it might help u to reinstall the homebrew and all the ios again and also be careful on not to update via game disc or nintendo .. To update ios use dop-mii or other software
