?

Do you hope that there is a way I can fix my mistake?

  1. Yes, it could have happened to anyone; don't feel so stupid.

  2. You should have already known this, but I'm willing to overlook that and hope you get homebrew back.

  3. No; you updated through Nintendo, live with no hacks; sorry!

    So yeah, I had Homebrew Channel and all that stuff working until just recently; my sister was checking out our Wi-Fi connectivity since she was having trouble connecting for a decent Mario Kart Wii race (we have figured out that problem; turns out my father's computer is somehow linked to the problem... but that's another story). She sees an update and I think, "We're already at 4.2U, so this must be some other minor update"; thusly, I tell her, "Go ahead sis; it shouldn't matter and it'll keep someone else from doing it when they shouldn't!" Then... my Wii is what I like to call "half-bricked". It runs games and the Homebrew Channel itself just fine, but the Homebrew Browser is the only homebrew app that doesn't freeze; and even THAT doesn't work. I was able to load stuff through Stack Smash, but now my Brawl disc refuses to read at all, compared to the infrequency with which it did; so, that's another plan down the drain. I have a feeling it's an IOS problem since I was able to load through Stack Smash; but now that my Brawl disc doesn't work, I can't even do that.

    [​IMG] So what have we learned?

    Rule #1 of having Homebrew on your Wii: Never update through Nintendo.
    Rule #2 of having Homebrew on your Wii: NEVER UPDATE THROUGH NINTENDO.

    Yes, I suppose it could have been worse and my Wii could have been completely bricked and the entire family would have hated me, etc. etc. But please, if there is any way I can get homebrew back, please tell me. [​IMG]

    bannerbomb should help you get back into the game bro. Also read the simplistic mod that is stickied.

    Anyway... is it only homebrew that is not working (along with SSBB)?

    And whet error does SSBB give? Does it just blackscreen?
    Does Mario Kart Wii fail too (the same way SSBB does)?

    If you can reinstall the system menu wads you may be able to fix it.

    I don't think that reinstalling the sysmenu will fix this error...

    It's most likely a problem with IOS36, but it may not be...

    I'll just have to wait for the OP to reply.

    Reinstalling the system menu will not help.

    Reinstalling ios36 probably will not help.

    Deleting your stubed ios249 and reinstalling cIOS38-r17 will likely fix your issues.

    From my understanding your System Menu is still working.
    What seems to have happened is that you rewrote some of your cIOS with stubs.

    You'll have to:
    1. Use DOP-Mii to restore the Trucha Bug on IOS36
    2. Use DOP-Mii to remove the IOS Stubs
    3. Use Trucha Bugged IOS36 to install Waninoko's cIOS 249/250 and Hermes' cIOS 222/223
    4. Use DOP-Mii to rollback IOS36 to the most updated version.

    After that, I recommend you to install Priiloader and enable the hacks that prevent updating.
