First off I would like to say this forum is very knowledgeable and I have learned a lot in the past few days of reading. Let me start by explaining the situation. A friend gave me his WiiU that he had previously softmodded (Method Unknown). I can still get into the vWII but HBC is missing. I have tried the hackmii 1.2v installer but it hangs on the scam screen. After digging I was able to get Wii Homebrew Launcher to work using the batman exploit. From there I used Multi Mod Manager to check IOS's and noticed he does not have IOS236 installed but 249-250 as well as some older cIOS versions like hermies (Which hard locks the vwii when trying to load). I have NAND access using IOS250 and removed the hermies which causes the hard locks in syscheck. When I run syscheck it scans all of the IOS's and then finishes but hard locks when trying to mount SD so I cannot get a saved report. When I try the IOS236 installer it just fails and I also tried the d2x beta 52/alt and it locks up when loaded as well. At this point I am stumped what the next step would be. would it be possible to flash HBC using a WAD instead of the installer as well as the other IOS's that will not install?
