    wii system update fail, want to virginize...

    hey my brother softmodded my wii like 9 months ago, he's pretty smart with computers and said it would be super easy for me to use, but i moved to a new town and we stopped talking. i never got the mod to work right and just kind of gave up on it and kept buying games. I recently bought donkey kong country returns and it asks for an update but fails. I panicked and formated my wii but it still wont update...
    please help, i dont care if its modded, i just want to play my game.

    Virginizing is a good way to brick it. I don't know why everyone always tries to format, but that can make things worse. Turn off your Wii, press POWER, and immediately press and hold RESET. Keep holding it until either the System Menu or Priiloader comes up. Reply and tell me what happens.

    NEVER UPDATE FROM NINTENDO! Reason why the update failed is probably because you have priiloader installed and updates disabled.


    It is not recommended to virginize a wii but here is a guide

    Select "System Menu Hacks"- Press A
    Enable "Block Disk Updates", and "Block Online Updates"

    Okay, at least you have an (old) version of Priiloader installed. I suggest you follow the Softmod ANY Wii guide, followed by Update All Your IOS's. Links to both are in my sig. I know it may take some time, but this is the best way to get everything back in order. It will also allow you to play the latest games.
