So long story short my nephew did the official update on his softmoded Wii from 3.2u to 4.0u. The problem is that now the Wii won't read any disks original or backup, they show up on the disk channel but as soon as I hit start it goes dark and stays dark. Now I don't think is fully bricked since we still have access to everything else like the wad games and HBC, I've even installed new wad games and they play just fine and if I launch usbloadergx I'm able to play any game in my HDD. I tried installing preloader but tells me it can't, bootmii will only install as an IOS and for what I've read thats just useless. I want to downgrade to 3.2 again but really don't want to try it since I have no safety net like preloader in case it goes bad. I've searched this and some have had success but most had a chip installed while others where told "you're sol buddy". I'm also thinking about reinstalling cioscorp but I think I would get the "System Files Corrupt" which will require me to reinstall preloader. If I was to run Trucha Bug Restorer would that help me at all? Thanks in advance for any responses.
