    A month or two back I formatted the SD card I used to softmod my Wii to use for other things, since I didn't think I would be using my Wii anymore. Big mistake.
    I've tried putting some of the app files in the proper folder on the SD card and the Homebrew channel itself works, but other than that? No luck. The apps that are accessed from the regular Wii menu are still there, but inaccessible.
    USB Loader GX, Configurable USB Loader, Neogamma, and Wiiflow all send me right back to the Wii menu when I open them. Like I said, the Homebrew Channel and Backup Homebrew Channel still work.
    I'm not sure if I need to uninstall and then reinstall the softmod somehow, or something less/more convoluted than that. I'd appreciate any help I can get.

    Download whatever apps your missing now and place them back onto the sd card.

    No need to redo any mods or anything.

    Your sd card needs to be fat32 format and then place the files like this

    SD:\apps\*\boot.dol

    Where * is whatever app need back

    example

    SD:\apps\wiiflow\boot.dol

    Thanks, this worked! My issue was that I tried to put .wads in the /apps folder. Guess I'll just have to remember to use the Homebrew menu instead of the regular Wii one.

    as long as you put all your apps back in the correct locations then your forwarder channels from the wiis main menu should still work.
