I recently updated to 4.0U using the online installation method found here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=144835 I screwed up during the installation process, and did not perform the NAND backup. I just read right over it. The system upgrade worked without any problems. At least, I was able to load the system menu. I then found out about the DarkWii theme (and themeing in general), and decided to give it a shot, using mymenuify. That's where my woes begin. I get this when I try to load the system menU after installing the csm I made: I can probably get a higher resolution picture if needed, but I doubt anything useful can be gleaned from it. For reference, it is a launch day Wii. I have redownloaded/unpacked/repacked the files for the darkwii theme (app files to csm via mym) to try reinstalling. No joy. I then tried running the 4.0 online updater from above again, starting with step 3. When I get to the step that calls for the NAND backup, I get an error (Backup Failed -1) I get an error on the last step of the actual firmware updater (ret =-1) as well. My system has both preloader 0.29 and BootMii installed. Both work fine. HBC loads with no obvious problems. I read somewhere to try loading the system menu with a different IOS. It was on IOS 30, and I tried 36, as had been mentioned in the thread I saw. Same results. A little research revealed that iQue is Nintendo China. I have no idea how that happened, but I'm sure the file that put it there came from one of the above processes. Of course, that's quite a large number of files, and I only barely understand the Wii's kernel, so it's probably only confusing the situation more. I have the clean wad for the system menu, but I have no idea if it's safe to try installing with the wad manager, so I'm hoping for some input. I did try searching for this, even used the advanced search to no avail. If it's been covered before, I could not locate it. If I'm totally borked, does anyone know of a way to play wads from HBC?
