Hi all, Basically it appears I am missing a bunch of IOS files from my wii (LU59-menu 3.4U) (Don't ask ... kids will be kids ... lol) Updates from any disks fail. Updates via menu system fail. At this point there is nothing on the main wii screen (checkout mii, internet channel, etc all gone via title deleter) HBC was installed at one time now gone. After searching the internet, I think I have the basic idea of how to get the system back to square one. I am looking for confirmation that I am on the right track. 1. I need to use NUSD (beta 1.3) to download the IOS files. What checkboxes should be checked ? Pack-Wad. (ignore ticket? - decrypt? - local files?) 2. Prepare an SD card like doing bannerbomb. 3. Put the wad manager 1.4 "dol" file as boot.dol in the SD root. 4. Put the downloaded IOS files as named by NUSD in a root folder named "wad" 5. Boot the wii, goto sd card channels and wait for "no card inserted", THEN insert SD card and boot it. 6. This will run wad manager 1.4 7. It then asks which IOS slot to use. What do I use here since a lot of the IOS files are missing? (Here are the ones I have available: 4, 9, 10-17, 20, 21, 22,28, 30, 31, 33, 34, 37, 38, 50, 51, 53, 250) 7a. Do I use the same number of the file I am trying to re-install? 7b. What do I use for the IOS that I DO NOT have ?? Any guidance is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
