    A while back I did an install of HBC and all of the goodies but with one problem. When I was going through the walkthough and it said to delete three particular IOS files, I accidentally deleted the first few files because I didn't realize that I had to click a different button to skip past them.

    I have no idea what IOS files I deleted, but obviously I need them because I've performed softmods correctly now and the same files that would not work on mine would work on the subsequent Wii's I've modded.

    Is there a way to figure out what I have, what I am missing, and how you get them back?

    I'm using a 4.3E softmodded by use of the IndyPWNS exploit.

    Could you please post your syscheck? A file called syscheck.cvs or something like this will be created on your sd card, post the contents here.

    Well, your syscheck is fine. You aren't missing any official IOS, and all cIOS are installed too.

    Okay... Wondering if I should just try reformatting the bastard and starting from scratch. No idea how I should take it. It's really wierd that I can't play some games on mine that will play on other modded boxes considering I did them exactly the same way short of deleting certain IOS files...

    If your syscheck is fine, then obviously you didn't actually delete the files as you may have assumed. Give us details on what games you're trying to run: official or backup? If backup, on DVD-R or USB loader? What USB loader if you're running through USB? For DVD-R, are you sure your Wii is capable of reading backups? Specific games that don't work?

    All my games are backups of the originals running from a hard drive using USBLoader GX. The game I'm having trouble with off the top of my head ATM is Crash: Mind Of Mutant. I click to run it, and the wii just locks up.

    Try forcing pal/ntsc (what ever the game's region is) rather than the default video setting and see if it starts.... and if that doesn't work, reinstall the game or try a diff loader.

    Your Homebrew Channel was installed on IOS61 it seems.

    Run Indiana Pwns exploit again and reinstall Homebrew Channel, it will run on IOS58 now (best IOS for it anyway)

    After that run Dop-mii http://wiibrew.org/wiki/DOP-Mii and reinstall IOS61

    I suggest you to stop messing with IOS before something bad happens (principally IOS80, if you delete it = full brick), this game issue maybe is a faulty ISO.

    Done. I thought about running the indypwns exploit but when you screw up once, you tend not to want to screw up more things. Everything went better than expected, not to mention that fixed my issue with WiiMC, so thank you!

    Now, if I could just figure out this thing with Crash. The ISO is good, like I said if I take it to another wii that I've softmodded, it runs fine.

    Using the same cios and same loader? That is really odd...

    Protip: Never delete an IOS or CIOS ever.... EVER....


    Did I mention EVER?


    If not.... EVER!

    Seriously there is never ever EVER EVER EVER EVER EEEEEEVVVVVEEEEEER a reason to delete an IOS or CIOS. If something is outdated, simply install a newer version over the old one. Stop using a specific program that uses 1 certain IOS/CIOS? Leave it alone... you could use something in the future that may need it, or it'll simply be overwritten in the future with an update. Either way, not a big deal.


    Stop deleting IOS! Do a search of the forum for the term "brick" and over half the threads are from people deleting IOS.

    You are right. But aren't IOSes greater than 200 safe to remove? (although you probably never will have a reason to do that)

    Thing is I don't know if I screwed up with the cios or not... Mine was my first one, and for all the reading up I did, going through it was fairly simple, but I managed to stuff up deleting something (or so I thought) so I don't even know if my cios are correct.

    @koji2009: Uh yeah. That was my moment of stupid, and I'm leaving it at that one.

    Delete the .config files from your loader.
    I''s on your SD.

    Yeah that wasn't necessarily aimed exclusively at you... Again, there are dozens if not hundreds of threads with people who have bricked wiis from deleting IOS. It should be in a sticky somewhere to never delete them and in most guides they don't recommend it (some advocate removing stubs... which is "safer" but still unnecessary in 99% of cases as long as some cIOS or patched IOS is installed in some slot...)
