    so I was following This guide to hack my Wii. I was updating the IOSs that were on the list. I think there was a bad connection during IOS 38, 53, or 55. it sent me back to the homebrew menu, but it was upside down! I turned off the wii and tried again, it was still upside down! i tried reinstalling it with the "go to the SD files" (sorry, forgot the name) method, but it said it wasnt able to install anything, not even DVDx or BootMii. right now Im restoring the NAND with BootMii. thankfully, it fixed it. I want to know, what exactly happened? should I try to update the IOSs again?

    also, another thing. I tried to install the 4.0 system menu with Waninkoko's updater (following the guide of the link), but the program froze. this was before I installed theIOSs. is there another "safe" way to install 4.0? i already had the shop channel installed before, and I think that is why it didn't work. (i believe its the version before the recent update) I installed it along with IOS61.


    notes: my wii has the 3.3u system menu with BootMii, a patched IOS36, cIOS38_rev14, IOS249

    if you used waninkoko's 4.0 updater you're luck you didnt brick your wii, as it downloads the latest ios60 which is now a stub.

    as for the homebrew channel loading upside down, search before you post next time. there are heaps of threads about this.

    it happens because its running on a patched ios. make sure that the ios that its running off isnt patched and it will be fine. if you are on 4.0+ this will be ios61, which has no need to be patched in the first place.

    I was really lucky then...

    so what other program could I use to update to 4.0? Im currently at 3.3... if its not possible,is there a way to open saved wiiware and classic games from the SD card? that's pretty much the only reason why I want to update. well also be able to change the appearence of the Wii system menu.

    download a working ios60 (V6174) and the correct system menu for your region using nusd, and then update every other ios using dop-ios or Pimp My Wii

    better off going to 4.1 over 4.0 personally though.

    what does 4.1 have over 4.0? the only reason i want to get 4.0 is because I read that the system menu hacks (change the appearance) are for either 4.0 or 3.2 only.

    nope, if anything there are probably more mods and themes for 4.1 these days.

    4.1 fixed a bug so you don't have to keep watching the Wii Motion video at the start of Wii Sports Resort after having played a game from SD.

    If you want to change your menu have a look at this

    this is a upgrader/downgrader link i provided above it will upgrade you via wifi , so have your wifi working when you run this through HBC. and be sure to pick the proper region.
    (the above link comes from this link)
    http://webrewwii.blogspot.com/2009/09/firm...11-mod-124.html

    HBC upside down is from haveing a patched ios 36..i believe is your case that enable you to install preloader, then when your done, un patch it and youll be fine agin with a regular HBC

    http://wiibrew.org/wiki/NUS_Downloader
    is the program to us to download the ios 36 click the data base tab to get the file you want
    then click pack-->wad to get it in a form you can use with HBC wad manager
    then pull the wad out of the new folder created...ignor the other crap
    install it with wad manager HBC will be rite side up again

    if its not pay attention to which ios HBC uses (it will show on the press of the home button in HBC)
    then redo this with the proper ios from nusd...but i bet its 36

    there are thread saying waninkoko updaters update with stubbs instead of the proper files
    u should use this feature http://gbatemp.net/index.php?act=search to find some of the stuff your asking here, its been mentioned alot already thats why you dont get good quik responses...

    -=-=- wow since 0m39a's 2nd response you did get quite a few...thats how long it took me to type this

    If you haven't realized by now, its upside down not because there is something wrong with your Wii but because the authors of Homebrew channel is deliberately playing a childish prank on you for having a modded IOS.

    The people who created The Homebrew Channel are very smart but also very juvenile, its no wonder Nintendo did not take them seriously.

    They had their fun but look at all the normal users who thought their Wii broke and attempted dangerous repairs trying to fix it, some probably brick theirs in the process. Not to mention the amount of threads looking for help.

    Another solution: use NUS Downloader and get IOS61 (v5405), install it with WAD Manager then uninstall and reinstall HBC.
