    How would I go about restoring my Wii back to factory normal. With all the IOS's? because at this point - I can't even launch my standard Wii Channels...
    They just reload me back to the menu.

    Is there any way to restore my IOS's?

    Btw. NOT EVEN HACKMII INSTALLER will work now...

    there are several different things to try.

    insert a disc and let it update.
    do the official update
    use bannerbomb to start a wad installer that doesnt reload IOS. then install wads of all the official IOSes

    Im currently on 4.2 and have no discs to update with

    so I'll go about the wad manager way.

    What do I need to do - and where do I find all the original IOS's?

    btw. Thanks GiantPune

    Does bannerbomb still work?

    If so, you could use bannerbomb to load a wad installer program like multi mod manager and re-install all the IOS's that are less than 200.
    If you can't use an exploit like bannerbomb or smash stack to load apps, you may have no options left other than doing an official nintendo update.

    You probably already know this now because you have made this mistake, but NEVER mess around with official nintendo IOS's.
    If you want to re-do a softmod, just install new cIOS over the old ones instead of uninstalling cIOS and then starting over.

    EDIT: looks like pune beat me to it.

    Yes Bannerbomb still works. - How would I switch it to load a wad manager instead of the Hackmii installer?

    and please give me some links to the wads

    are you saying that you dont own a single game? it doesnt matter if the game is older than your system menu. just grab one with a full update. wii sports will update, but it will only install like 2 IOSes.

    There are legal ways to download official IOS and pack them into a wad. However, for you I would recommend using a game or an official update to install everything.

    You don't seem to know very much and you also are willing to make very reckless decisions, so do it the easy way and just update with a game or do an official update.

    I know you don't have a game, just rent/borrow a game with the 4.2 SM like New Super Mario Bros Wii. If you do an official update, just rent/borrow smash stack and follow one of the stickied guides.

    did you by any chance run an old (but faulty) version of dop-mii (specifically the syscheck) to get this reload back to menu problem?

    Out of curiosity, why on earth did you remove most of the IOS in the first place?

    I believe he did this because he wanted to re-virginize his wii and re-do the softmod. He was told by others to just overwrite the cIOS's, but instead he decided to get rid of nearly everything. Hopefully this time he'll be more cautious and not brick his wii.

    My console wont allow me to update. Ive re-routed the bannerbomb file to load MMM v13.2 - another thing I have to ask is why would Wii Sports have an update? Its never prompted me to update before.


    - btw. Priiloader is still on my wii. possibly the issue with updating is with Priiloader.

    UPDATE: 9/13/2010 10:30AM -

    How would I go about installing the Nintendo IOS's? I'm currently using MMM and it looks like it has the features to let me manage IOS's as well as install them from the NUS. Is this how I would go about re-installing the official IOSs? or am I doing it wrong again?

    It's likely that priiloader is preventing you from updating. Disable the "block disc updates" and "block online updates" hacks.

    Also, you will need a game other than wii sports because it only has ios9 and the system menu on it.

    this will work.
    or you can download the WADs with NUS downloader and install them with MMM

    Heres what I'm doing:

    Im in MMM>Manage IOS>Select IOS to manage> then all the IOS's that I dont have I'm choosing to install.

    When I install them I have the following options:

    Fakesign Patch - I choose NO
    ES_Identify Patch - I choose NO
    NAND Permission Patch - I choose NO


    - if you have any other steps or recommendations on how to restore the official nintendo IOS's using MMM
    please let me know. I'm feeling pretty down on my luck and havent really found the answers ive been looking for.

    Just make sure to stay away from IOS70 because if you install the newest version of that you will brick your Wii because that is a stub. I don't know whether MMM will allow you to install a stub but just letting you know to be on the safe side.

    Or do what i somehow managed to do and have IOS80 and IOS70 active at the same time.
    Thanks to the people that posted in this thread. I have an IOS problem as well and this has given me an idea to fix it.
