What's up folks, A couple of years ago I purchased a Wii and got a random friend of a friend to modd it for me. I am oblivious to what method he used, but since I was able to play back ups via neogamma just fine, I never asked questions. Over the years the amount of new games that I was able to play were less and less. I began reading into it, forum post after forum post would suggest lengthy lists of iOS patches, and alternative back up loader apps (such as USB loader) that would help me deal with newer games. But every time I would start following through detailed lists of instructions on how to install this or that iOS, was, or app, I would start getting some error messages. I would then google that error message, only to end up getting yet another error message trying to fix the original. Three days later, and I find myself with a big mess. Almost no app works, and I have a complete mess in regards to which I OSs I have, don't have, or are incorrectly installed. I can't even get bootmii to open from my buggy homebrew. My troubleshooter intuition tells me to find a way to restore my wii to original factory settings and original, and start from scratch using one of the more comprehensive guides. What do you think? Does the wii's factory restore option even install original Ios's? Will it brick my Wii? Are there alternate methods to refresh all iOSs to factory versions? Should I try to access bootmii again, using one of the other soft mod methods?
