Hey... have been working on this for far too long without asking for help so thought maybe you guys had some advice. Basically, about a week ago I had a change of heart and decided to buy my first game for the wii, Metroid the other M. After starting to play and realizing that I had a disk error in the same place 5 times in a row, I checked online and found out it was probably because I had homebrew/cIOS installed. So, I decided to virginize my wii and completely unhack it. Unfortunately, I was too stupid to look up how to do it online first and instead just formatted thinking it would get my wii back to its default settings. Obviously I was wrong and I still can't play metroid. So now my HBC is deleted post-format and my menu is updated to 4.3. I rented super smash brothers brawl from blockbuster and thought maybe I could use the super smash hack to reinstall HBC and then delete all my homebrew. Unfortunately, the hackmii installer gives me the IOS error (i installed cIOS so it wont run) so I have no way to get my HBC back. Then, I did a little more research and thought I could use loadmii to load all the .dol files that i need to revirginize my wii. I can get the loadmii elf to run via the smash hack but for some reason, loadmii cannot detect my SD card (even though it is RUNNING off my SD card). I tried to run the .dol files through loadmii on a USB stick but when I try, it just crashes. So I guess I have a couple questions: 1. Has this ever happened to anyone before? 2. Is there any way around the hackmii IOS check? 3. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong with loadmii and why it wont detect my SD card 4. Are there any .dol loaders in a .elf format that I can load with the smash hack 5. Why was I such a moron Thanks ahead of time for all the help. Hope you guys have an answer.
