    So like a month ago i deleted hombrew channel when my Wii U wouldn't connect to the internet thinking it would fix the problem. Afterwards that didn't work and I tried to restore it but i couldn't. So now i'm stuck with a Wii U that wont connect to the Wi-Fi so I can't play new games. I also tried to use the Bathaxx exploit and Smash exploit but i get en error that there is no vulnerable IOS installed on the Wii. Is their anyway to fix this?

    Edit: I didn't Accidentally delete it

    How did you 'accidentally' delete it? And what error do you get when you connect to the net?

    A few things need to be explained. How did you accidentally delete it? How did you install it the first time? If any, what cIOS's have you installed?

    So i didn't accidentally delete it I deleted thinking it would fix the problem. And I dont get an error when i try to connect to the net i get en error when i try to update my wii u. (I need to update my Wii U since I cant use the internet without it)

    Lol yes it is

    I didn't accidentally delete it I deleted it thinking it would fix the problem. And i used the Smash bros exploit the first time. Now it wont even load Smash Bros so i tried Bathaxx and it says no vulnerable cIOS available. I only used Trucha Bug Restorer.

    You didn't block Wii U updates in the router and forget about it did you? :P
    Or maybe someone else in your household did.

    Try to remove the custom IOSes first before trying to reinstall the homebrew channel. I assume you uninstall it using the uninstall option through the same exploit you installed it from right?

    As a last resort try to completely format your Wii U by going to settings and choosing the last option in the menu. You can still copy your saves into your SD card.

    2. I didn't uninstall it using the same exploit. I uninstalled it like you would any other channel

    3. I already formatted my Wii U

    Did you try formatting both vWii and Wii U? I'm not sure if the Wii U format would take care of all vWii space or not.

    You don't need to connect to wifi to play new games.

    You do since it asks you to update

    Their is no way to just format the vWii (That I know of)

    Somwhere you can never find.
    this might not help for homebrew chanel but in internet settings if you set preferred network to something not connected to a network it lets you play games needing updates aslong as you cancel setting connection when the game loads (might ask twice)

    about the homebrew channel, you can try using one of the exploits to launch multi mod manager (mmm) by replacing the bootmii boot.dol in the private folder whith the (mmm) boot.dol and from there run a syscheck

    Choose the last option under Wii U settings. The further one to the right. It says about restore or something. That is like formating. This will hopefully also fix the vWii issues

    I deleted my Hombrew channel too, and no Hackmii installer won't work when trying the Bathaxx method (and I never installed any cIOS)
