    Virginze my wii, quick question!!

    My wii isn't brick i dont think but have never been able to get to work correctly after softmod. Didn't get the answers I was looking for in previous post, most likely its me. Read through pages and pages os posts on virginizing and didn't find what I was looking for. I don't think a softmodding is for me so I just want it back to factory.

    Basic question. I just bought my wii so it came with 4.3u. After softmodding, it shows i'm running 4.1 Do i follow the 4.3 guide or 4.1 guide. Thanks guys, i appreciate any assistance.

    You are not very good at following directions are you? There is no reason to be on 4.1 if your wii is brand new. You must have missed that in whatever guide you followed. You have formatted your wii, which is another mistake! You have been asked to post a syscheck so someone could actually try to resolve some of your problems. You have been informed that "virginizing" is a bad idea, but you seem determined to do it. I have answered this question for you already in one of your other posts. When you have a full brick you will only have one person to be pissed at. Wiihacks tries very hard to help, it's up to you to accept the help or just move on.

    Skellinator:
    First: the Softmod Any Wii guide states that downgrade is option because it enables bannberbom v1 and v2 which I have read to be helpful. No where does the instructions say to NOT actually do a downgrade.

    Second: I formatted the Wii before reading these threads, noob mistake now I know, but isn't that what a newbie forum is for? for noobs to post their mistakes to get assistance instead of just smart comments from helpful ppl with nothing better to do at 4am in the morning. This is the REASON I decided to virginize my wii. There are people who want to be helpful to answer simple quests for noobs who don't know what they're doing. Then there are helpful ppl who rather leave long as comments and waste not only their own time, but other's time to read which doesn't lead anywhere. As far as doing a system check with syscheck v2 as recommended, I'm working on that but it freezes at the exact same spot every time, so you can see why I might be a little frustrated.

    Third: You never answered this question. My earlier post stated I wanted to know which guide I should use to resoftmod my wii, you said to use the version my wii said. See, I did follow instructions because I do want to this to work, but still the resoftmod didn't work. Never have I asked a question about my system to virginize. I'm asking to be thorough so I DON'T brick my Wii you helpful person.

    Finally: your a really great person. I just wish I were capable of being grateful and listening to what was being told to me. (had to make sure if you couldn't tell from my sarcasm in responds)

    I know what you mean that the threads are hard to read!!!
    I tried a few times before managing to carry out a full complete and working softmod on wii 4.3E. I would say to update completely from nintendo and then you can remove the channels after the update to put it back to normal.

    I have soft modded around 10-15 4.3E/U wiis now and have not downgraded any of them and so far all games have worked ok for me. If you have any queries just pm me and i will try to help if i can. (I am in no way an expert but will help if i can).

    OK, the guide does not say why downloading is or isn't a bad/good idea. I guess I should not expect you to have seen all of the discussions on that topic.

    Yes this forum is for people to help others who have made mistakes or are having issues. I don't know where you live, but according to the timestamp on my screen you were the one on here @ 3:36am. You were having issues about 5 days ago with GX and were asked to post a syscheck so someone could help you. If you are having problems running a syscheck don't you think it would be a good idea to ask for some help on that?

    I did answer your question, I said to follow the instructions for the system menu that your wii is showing that it is on. Your issues may have to do with whatever you installed in the first process. Without that syscheck we have nothing to base any of our answers on.

    You probably should re read the rules too, some of the language you chose to use is inappropriate. I can handle the flaming but would rather not have people having to read profanity in it.

    @mrnugyen --- I smell a...

    Spoiler




    EDIT:
    The way you talk to Skell is what you call ''jerky'', and don't expect him/us to take everything you say.
    He was only trying to help you, and if there's no appreciation or respect for that, then it might be better if you just...go away.

    Wow, we got a real winner here. Thanx for trying to help skell and hopefully you won't let this one ruin your desire to do so. Some ppl honestly think the world owes them everything, and that our only purpose is to sit here and be insulted.
    I would say anyone helping this guy from now on is pretty much fail.

    I was really mad and angry, especially because Skell took the time to reply to him once more. I couldn't do it.
    I might sound relaxed in my comment, but I wasn't. At the end, it was tempting to say something way more powerful, but I dealed with ''go away''.

    ....... ok... soooo.. The profanity is for sure a little over the top... but we can all understand frustration right? But the approach to the problem can also cause more aggression.. from what I gather, Skellinator was trying to help previously... As far as his first post in this thread his comments seem discouraging... Shouldnt we be encouraging others to learn and help them understand this stuff a lil better? Im new to all this also and can understand how frustrating it is when you feel like your about to break something, or your struggling to figure out what everything means/does.. Also.. Telling someone to move on or go away doesnt help anyone.. I understand standing up for a buddy, but from what I see Skellinator can handle it himself.. Dont think he needs others to chime in with non-helpful things to say.. And if it's that bad, then simply choose not to respond.. Seems thats the approach most people here take anyways..

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