    Friend updated Wii and now it's all messed up

    A few years ago I softmodded my friends wii, this was when 4.1 was the newest version. Someone bought him the family fued game for christmas and it wouldn't play, so I used Guide bots guide to update.
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    I believe I tried it and everything was working fine, but not positive.

    Anyway, I gave the wii back to him and I talked to him again and his family member wanted to play Family Feud. Well they updated the wii. After that the wii stopped loading the usb drive using any usb loader I have tried. It fails to mount it.

    I checked the wii settings and it still says it is in 4.1 and still has homebrew, but it will no longer mount the hard drive.

    I had priiloader installed which blocks disc updates, I tried to start all over and update to 4.3. I connected to the internet and chose to update through the nintendo channel and it said it was doing it, but it is still in 4.1 and has all homebrew, but like I said won't mount the hard drive. I tried to load priiloader, but that no longer works.

    And ideas suggestions?

    Follow the softmod any wii guide again. This time when you enable the hacks to block online and disc updates, make sure you save settings.

    I tried to follow the guide again using the Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed, when I try to install the wads using MMM 58-61 it fails to install the wads. Basically I cant get wads 58 and 61 to install, so I don't think I can remodify it. What can I do to install these?

    edit: oh didn't know I could skip to chapter 2, will give that a try

    You already have higher revisions installed, just skip that.

    Glad you got it. Make sure you click save settings after you enable those hacks. Then if someone tries to update it will give an error, instead of wiping your softmod.
