    I installed the Homebrew Channel through the Hackmii installer and everything seemed ok, except the aspect ratio. I also installed IOS236 and Cios249. And then I did a silly thing. While I was trying to install Wiiflow Master Mod by Abz I accidentally installed a Wii ios58 wad not realizing it was a Wii file, and that even then it was the wrong version number anyway, till after I installed it.

    I can still load homebrew using the Bathaxx exploit and I have installed an ios that is supposed to be for vWii labelled ios58-64-v6176(vWii).wad but the HackMii installer freezes and locks up the console completely. Also, I am on the newest firmware, so a global update won't fix my problem unfortunately.

    I didn't back up my NAND, which in hindsight was a pretty dumb thing to have done, but I have never had trouble with the old Wii's that I've hard/softmodded so I didn't think I would cock things up like this :ohnoes:

    If anybody could PM me about how I can get my hands on ios-64-v6432.wad, I'd really appreciate it.

    The IOS58 WAD you got may be fakesigned, only BlueDump makes correctly signed vWii WADs I think. Maybe one of the other members knows how to get a correctly signed IOS58 WAD.

    @Sonic Angel Knight: Do you mean the Nintendo update servers? I don't think this one is available from Nintendo. I didn't see any option to download it. If I remember right, it said it was unavailable.

    If i remember correctly on the homebrew browser there was a utility dedicated to installing ios58 for people who didn't have it installed yet. :unsure:

    http://wiibrew.org/wiki/IOS58_Installer :P

    Maybe use a ios checker verifyer utility then find out if any ioses are wrong and then use dop mii ios to fix? :unsure:

    Are ioses in wii u different than on regular wii?

    I looked into Homebrew Browser just now. I tried to run it from Homebrew Launcher v1.0 and it crashed. I'll give the IOS58 installer a go and report back, but I have a feeling it will only be able to get Wii ioses. That's the problem I've got cause I didn't back up my vWii wads and I installed a Wii ios. But I suppose it can't hurt to try. But I'm pretty sure the vWii ioses are different because I read somewhere you shouldn't use them.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    When you are in a hole STOP DIGGING!

    Please, do not rush things. That is why you are currently in this situation.
    Please, Post a SysCheck (SysCheck HDE 2.4). If a vIOS gives you trouble, use the skipios option in the meta file.

    Do NOT delete anything or try to reinstall anything!

    The only way to get a proper, non-fakesigned IOS58 is to get it from someone who takes a clean dump of it with bluedump on their own vWii. Post a sysCheck first, and your most likely next step would be to load up a YAWMM elf file with bathaxx and install the proper, non-fakesigned IOS 58.

    Thanks guys. You've all been super helpful. I stopped messing around so I don't make matters worse. From other threads I've read on here, it seems that I'm lucky I can still load homebrew and everything but ios58 related things are still working. I'll do a syscheck and post back here as soon as I can.

    I have deleted the homebrew channel from the vWii menu cause it was hanging, but apparently HBC is still installed. From what I gather, my issue is IOS58 and that is why I can't run HackMii installer. But keep in mind, I ain't an expert :ph34r:

    Is there anybody that can give me a link to a clean vIOS58 file? Or is that against the rules?
    Otherwise, is there any way to skip the IOS58 file so I can install the Homebrew Channel?

    Check your PM and I can help you out.

    This won't work for several reasons, one being that this downloads a regular Wii IOS and not a vWii IOS which is what got him into this mess in the first place, the other being that it likely wouldn't have the proper permissions having been loaded directly from an exploit.

    that's strange, your syscheck report Wii instead of vWii.

    Never delete HBC.
    that's what is said in many guides.



    About a guide to help you fix your console:

    as you installed IOS236 for vWii, you are safe and can fix your issue in less step than if you had only IOS249 :)

    but first, do you have a forwarder channel installed on your system menu ?
    if you don't, you will need the game you used to run hackmii installer again. if you have a forwarder, you can skip the "game exploit" step and use the forwarder channel.

    Download This wad manager.

    So, if you don't have a forwarder :
    Put the IOS58-v6432.wad on your SD card root.
    Put the boot.elf on your SD card root, and run the game exploit. it will load the wad manager.
    when you have the choice to reload into another IOS slot, select slot 236.
    Now browse your SD card and select the IOS58-v6432.wad file, then choose install.
    Done.

    If you have a forwarder :
    Put the IOS58-v6432.wad on your SD card root.
    you will need the "boot.dol" instead of the "boot.elf"
    locate the place where your forwarder is pointing to (for example, if it's USBLoaderGX forwarder, replace /apps/usbloader_gx/boot.dol with the dol from the wad manager)
    Launch the Forwarder, it will load the wad manager.
    when you have the choice to reload into another IOS slot, select slot 236.
    Now browse your SD card and select the IOS58-v6432.wad file, then choose install.
    Done.


    You should be able to reinstall HBC by running hackmii installer from your game exploit.
    put hackmii installer boot.elf back to the root of your SD card.

    I use bathaxx. I still have the game. No forwarder and I deleted the HBC forwarder because it was crashing. I thought it was gone. I'm relieved to know that there may be a way to restore my system :)

    I thought you sent it by PM already.
    Also, your file is not correctly named. (IOS58-v6432.wad is the correct one, just missing the "-")
    it's good when using a manager, but not when using automatic installers like the V58i.wad channel.
