    I have 4.2U with homebrew channel and such but some things freeze and I think I messed something up...anyone know how I can delete EVERYTHING that has to do with homebrew and start over with it while keeping my save files?

    By not deleting ANYTHING, pretty much everything can just be reinstalled over itself to update it. Trying to solve your problem specifically would probably be more efficient than trying to nuke everything on the system to get to it.

    Did you update via nintendo by any chance? You probably have a stubbed cIOS. Use anytitledeleter to deletes IOS249 and 50.

    Then install CiosRev14 again. That should fix your wad manager problem

    Yeah I did heres the story

    My friend helped me hack my wii at 4.0 everything was great then 4.2 came and he walked me through the guide on here but read only the part as if I was already on 4.2 but I wasn't...and some wads wouldn't install...then wiihelp told me to just update by nintendo to 4.2 and redo everything as it would delete the hbc and stuff...well it didn't I still have everything but only hbc works (in regards to homebrew) not even bootmii comes up....that's why I want to start completely fresh on 4.2 and redo all this homebrew stuff but I do not wish to lose all my save files..

    Start here and read it all:
    http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/ha...uide/the-basics

    Then go to the next step here:
    http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/ha.../trucha-bug-4-2

    If you do all the steps properly, your 4.2 wii should be working as intended. I recommend that when it says (as a tip) to install the cIOS use the Waninkokos cIOS rev14 (not rev15).
    And also after the NAND backup is complete (if possible) search, and read up about priiloader as its a fairly handy tool to have installed as well.

    you could virginize the wii and start over, but its likely not needed. Good luck and read everything before you go ahead and end up bricking your wii!

    Well outside of only having HBC in there, who knows if you have Turcha Bug enabled IOS or not, etc... Since you mentioned that you basically skipped steps previously, it would be wise to make sure all steps are taken this time.

    If your really concerned, you can always re-run the official N 4.2 update or use the safe updater, then take it from there using the guide.

    Hmm well I cant answer if it will effect your save files or not. And unfortunately "I think" that the copy protection exploit is a hack in priiloader? So unless someone is more familiar with that situation..?

    I think you'll just have to roll with the punches.

    Granted I could be mistaken as I never concern myself with save stuff. However anyone more familiar with those details is free to correct me if I am wrong.

    re-run the bannerbomb and reinstall the latest bootmii package.
    Make a NAND backup and take it from there.

    There should be no reason for anything to not work from that point onward.

    Just make sure you have the folders "app" and "wad" and be sure to make sure the apps are named "boot.dol".

    HBC is the key to modding your wii. From that is where everything else is run. So lets say for example you are on this page:
    http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/ha.../trucha-bug-4-2

    You'll get the Trucha Bug Restorer 1.1 and its a zip file.
    On your SD card, you'll want to make a folder called "apps" and within that, "TBR" and inside that folder (TBR) is (most importantly) a file called "boot.dol".

    HBC once loaded, should see this file and list it as a runnable application, you click it and off you go.

    This is how all "apps" in HBC work.

    just make sure you use a trucha patched ios when installing a wad.
