It's going to be a long write and I feel it deserves its own topic. Basically, my little brother finally persuaded our parents to buy him a Wii, and I decided to softmod it for him so he could play back-ups. Like a lazy noob bastard I am, I found an easy guide on the internets and decided to *generally* stick with it, but ehem... ran into some minor problems. Well what I did is this: (Step 0: New/vanilla Wii with firmware 4.3E) Step 1: Installed the HomeBrew Channel and BootMii via the Letterbomb exploit (as per instructions on the WiiBrew site) - Also backed up the NAND via BootMii Step 2: Followed the instructions for further softmodding here: http://chrislowthian...3-nintendo-wii/ - Basically, as far as I followed the output of 'Wii Mod Batch v2.9', it installs a bunch of cIOS routines - Also added some bricking protection by installing Priiloader and disabling software updates Step 3: I was supposed to install a content loader of some sort, but I went playing around with the included Wii Mod and discovered a menu called 'Other menu'. Being a curious noob, I delved further and discovered this menu hides the option to install IOS 36 (or maybe 38?) w/Fakesign patch... Proceeded to install this patch (I read on some older guide it is beneficial), but it threw an error somewhere during the install. Fortunately, the Wii did not brick and as of now still works. Step 4: I read somewhere that on newer Wiis you're not supposed to downgrade IOSes, and realised I just made a serious mistake by installing that IOS patch. Nevermind, everything still works, let's install USB Loader GX. The program ran fine in HBC and successfully loaded an USB back-up, but trying to install the included channel via the Wii Mod's WAD manager threw me a serious error: 'Unknown error'. I don't know about you guys, but I have some experiences with Unix systems of various sorts and 'Unknown errors' scare the shit out of me. Definitely it shows a bad state of IOS affairs. Now, this is as things stand as of right now. The bloody thing is functional and even loads back-ups, but I am still looking to revert the state to Step 1 (or maybe even 0?) and try to softmod it again from scratch. How do I remove all the cIOSes and revert the IOSes to ther original (vanilla) state? Is there a program that does this for me or do I have to revert them manually? What can I use as a reference for the default state? Is this even possible?
