I have a Wii that started out as v3.1u, the DVD drive is toast. I bannerbombed and got HBC installed. Played some snes9x and whatever. That all works. Tried installing USB Loader 1.5 with cIOS38 rev13b. Everything installed fine. BUT No backups boot. Followed this: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=144835 And got sysmenu 4.0u installed. Followed everything to the "T", and everything installed without fuss. Reinstalled USB Loader and still nada, except Super Paper Mario gets "Exception (DIS) occurred!". Nothing else even tries to boot through USB loader (screen stays black). BTW this is with cIOS36 rev10. Followed the same tutorial and revert to 3.2u. (beforehand I run cIOS Uninstaller, and AnyTitleRemoverMOD to delete IOSs 249 and the USB Loader channels) Again, everything installs without a hitch. The guide uses IOS36 rev10, so I install the original USB Loader 1.5. Still NOTHING BOOTS VIA USB!!! Any ideas?? How do I "start fresh" without internet? If that's not doable, should I just get a wireless router and do update? Will that clear ALL of the cIOSs installed and patched ones as well? I'd like to start from the very beginning. I don't mind bannerbombing it again and starting from scratch. Is this the only way to go "factory fresh" without a DVD drive? Any other ideas I should try before I do this? Or should I put the Wii in an SNES case and call it done?
