I updated my Wii to 4.3 (was planning on just letting it break the HBC and all, then rehacking it after) and now after the health and safety screen I get to the menu for about half a second(music plans and errthan), then it freezes and a very loud buzzing starts. I had installed bootmii when I first modded my wii (2010...9?) and made a backup, but that SD card has been reformated since then and the backup I had on my HDD went out when it died last year. I remember I had to have an SD card with some files on it to even boot into bootmii (otherwise Id just go to the health and safety screen like normal) so I had my friend do a fresh install of bootmii on his wii and upload the bootmii folder that it put on his SD card, but this hasn't gotten me into it. Question 1: does updating the wii system uninstall bootmii? Question 2: Am I 100% screwed here? I've read something about recovery mode, but I'm not sure if that'd be any help, and I've read that you need to press all four dpad directions at once on boot to get there, and my gamecube controller has some sort of pin in the center to prevent that it seems. Obviously I don't mind sacrificing a GC controller to get the wii working, but I have no idea if that'll even help.
