Ok guys, im going to write everything i did today so that you can understand what's the problem and hopefully help me to fix it. First off all, My Wii is chipped with a Wiikey chip. I got this Wii last year. My current firmware is 3.2E. Anway, i tried to boot my NSMBWii backup that i made yesterday but it didnt work. Everybody's talking about how this works with Neogamma, so i thought i'd try it too. I downloaded it and entered THE HBC. No problems yet. When i loaded it up it said i didnt have IOS36 or something like that, and that i had to install IOS. Didnt know what it means so I searched the forum and found this guide: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=168890 and followed it. The guide said that older the IOS36 doesnt need to be patched on older Wiis, and my wii is old. anyway, i tried to install the Preloader but it didnt work, and than i tried to boot the cIOS38 rev14 but it didnt work as well. I then patched IOS36 according to that video the guide gave. I dont have internet on my Wii so i put the wads in my SD root manually. I think i did everything right. Anyway, when i was finished with the patching i came back to the HBC and entered the PreLoader. From what i understood this was supposed to prevent bricks or something. dunno... anyway, i was done with the installation but i wasnt sure about it. it automaticaly booted it up afterwards. now, because i wasn't sure if installed it sucessfully or not, i messed around in the menu and entered "Load/Install File" and install the boot.dl that was in there. I was sure for some reason that it will do something good. I installed it and quit to the main menu. Problem is, there wasn't any. Instead of the Wii Menu i got this error that my Wii files are corrupted or something like that. I panicked like shit and started shivering like a maniac. I turend it off and tried again, but with no luck. I then tried again only this time i held the reset button to go back to the preloader. and it worked. i can even go to the homebrew channel and it works. The only thing that doesnt work is the Wii itself. I'm totally scared now guys. I thought i did everything ok but i ruined my Wii instead. Please tell me there's something to do. Please. And sorry for the long read, but i thought it is nessecary. edit: sorry for the oh now. lol i didnt pay attention to what i was writing.
