    Seriously, I have had enough of my Wii.

    Not exactly sure what IOS/MIOS/CIOS or anything I have, but I have wiped my Wii with Any Title Deleter more then once.

    It started out as me trying to get my USB to work with my wii, I was on 3.2. everything worked on it perfectly, Wii backups, Gamecube backups, etc.
    for some reason (Dont ask me why) I thought USB Loader wouldnt work with my Wii until I updated. so I updated to 4.0
    I have been wanting to do this for a while because of the SDHC compatibility. I found out the only reason my USB wouldnt load is because WBFS Manager somehow formatted my partition wrong.
    So thats all fixed, but anyway.

    When I updated and fixed my wii up with USB stuff, my gamecube backups would no longer run.
    So I tried to reinstall what most guides come with, the mios patcher and DVDX.
    Didnt work. I figured this was because I was on 4.0. I mean, it worked before I updated.
    So, I downgraded via AnyReagon.

    STILL didnt work.
    So I wiped my whole wii from its IOS and other such things with AnyTitle.
    come to find out everything fucked up, so I found a guide online with all the wads of ios I needed to install shit.

    Needless to say I have been to hell and back with my Wii.
    Sad part is, it loads, but im not sure if my Wii will load USB or GC right now.
    I havent botherd trying to load USB yet. Since i want to fix one problem at a time.
    No gamecube backups will load, at all, period.
    The gamecube launcher shows its logo, no options show, and my wii simply reboots itself.


    What I need from everyone is a small guide or something or a hand. Please give me the exact name of the version you want me to download.
    I completely wiped my Wii again via Anytitle.
    I am on a (should be) New like 3.2U with a upside down homebrew channel (I know how to fix this bug, so ignore this line of text), no IOS but the basic, a network connection.

    Can someone lend me a hand and tell me what I need to get Gamecube Backups, and USB Loader working on my Wii.
    I dont care what version(s). As long as it works.
    Also, Id like the Gamecube Backup Launcher to have the version 0.2 or higher. Because it runs AR. (I think its 0.2)

    there are so many verisons of things now, I lose track easily of what is compatible with what.

    Funny thing is.
    If you have all the files needed, and guides, Id probably get lost.
    Most people write guides for the newer Wiis. 4.0+
    However, I just need my 3.2 to work again. Seeing all the different typed of guides would probably just confuse me.

    Apparently it's not working perfectly fine or you wouldn't be making this topic.

    I tried to fix the upside down homebrew thing by reinstalling homebrew.
    I came across that "cant find a vurnable ios" error.
    So I tried to update to 4.1 to apply a ios, then redowngrade, but it didnt work because some Cios was poping up giving error 1029.
    So I just used anytitle again do just whipe my wii clean again.
    Now I cant even boot my homebrew channel.
    Nor can I install it, because of the "Cant find vurnable ios" error.
    IM GOING IN CIRCLES -_-
    Will someone acturally help me?
    Im at my last limb here.

    I say you hit the big shiny Wii System Update button (yes, to 4.2) so you can get your IOS's back in order, then softmod the thing from there. Then don't bother downgrading the system menu since that seems to be where half your troubles come from.

    How? lol
    I get the error 1036
    Yes, i have more then plenty of space on my Wii.

    When I try to downgrade too for laughs again, to see if it would even work. I get a -1017 error and a hash BAD thing.

    I think im pretty much fucked.
    Is there any way to downgrade a 4.3 yet? I have a spare Wii, but I want to make sure that I can acturally downgrade it and use it like I want without fucking it up too.

    EDIT AGAIN: uhh, I made two posts without noticing. Sorry.
    EDIT 3.0: Damnit nevermind. Doesnt seem like I can even touch the 4.3 Wii with any downgrader.
    for the love of christ..
    what the hell am I supposed to do? My wii is stuck and wont update or downgrade or anything, wont really even start any homebrew without errors.
    god damnit, I am so pissed off right now -_-
    Edit 4.0: I got my homebrew channel back.
    Still upside down though.

    Man, you are having some fun with that Wii, Not.

    No such version as 4.3 ??

    As previously stated, why not just update to 4.2 and be done with it.

    Else, cant you back it back to before you started playing with it a via a NAND restore.
