    As the title states, I was attempting to install USB Loader. Step one on the guide I was using was to downgrade to IOS36-64-v1042.wad.

    I did this......and now nothing works, any thing I try to launch goes to a black screen!

    I am on 4.1U.

    Will updating to 4.2 fix this and allow me to start over? Or will it simply brick my system?

    Can I use my legit copy of NSMB to sstem update to 4.1? And that fix the downgraded IOS?

    I hope I have not semi-bricked my system...

    I have a NAND backup made with BootMii....
    I do not have PriiLoader installed.

    I know, but will this delete my neogamma and all?

    I just need the updated IOS-36 installed, but have no way to install it.

    How about reading up properly before going in, guns a-blazing?

    If you follow all the steps in the guide, most likely everything will work flawless for you.

    I've done it to 8 Wii's and counting, no problems at all.

    yes everything from your NAND backup will be gone.

    But its really the best to do is to restore according to me, I hope someone else know a better way.

    Gambia, The
    The default solution for this is: Boot Trucha Bug Restorer via bannerbomb, skip IOS Reload, install an IOS36 with it.

    Not to sound like a moron.

    That would mean copy the Trucha app folder to the root of the card?

    I have bootMii Loaded....SD card was out of structure.

    Anyway to navigate without the GC controller?

    The reset button resets the system, the eject button is ejecting.

    I guess I need to hunt down a GC controller.

    Nope just copy the boot.dol from your Trucha folder to your root, that'll work.

    I need to fix my NAND backup as it thinks it is for a different Wii.

    Also, I can load into Trucha....but no controller responds, even the GC controller.

    Just to try, its a longshot. But disconnet the CMOS battery and put it back in again
    and just see if it makes any diffrence.

    I am about to restore my NAND backup. I assume I will need to start the mod process over, as well as my save games! Crap!!!
