    I'm using Wii Firmware 4.2 U
    I used The Ultimate Wii Hacking Guide
    http://forums.qj.net/wii-capabilities-hack...king-guide.html
    (List of programs used at bottom of message so you dont need to visit the site)

    Before I waste your time reading this,
    here's the Questions -

    Is there any way to get my Wii back to its original state(pre Softmod) or Download a NAND backup from someone else or anything like that or should I just re do the Hack and hope I dont BRICK my Wii?

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Everything from the guide was installed and fine, Used everything and still fine, then........ I deleted everything off my SD card
    (which is from a video camera and I need to use a USB to connect it to my computer)
    So when I deleted it I also lost my NAND backup and have literally no way of retrieving it ever)

    Then just awhile ago I went to the HBC channel and that didn't work(probably because I deleted everything off of the SD)
    So I put all the modding files on the HDD then went to use my wii to use USBLoader when I noticed it wasn't reading the disc, wouldnt let me back it up.

    Then I went to just play my game directly from the Wii disc launch channell(IT's a real disc by the way not a burn or anything)
    It said I needed to update it and it worried me because it had the signs of a POSSIBLE BRICK and none of the HBC, USB Loader , Neo Gamma etc. channels would boot up they'd go black and Id have to restart.

    So anyway I updated and the game and Wii work but I just want to REVERT my Wii to before I did any of this and avoid a BRICK which I feel is coming soon for me since Im an idiot

    So is there any way to get my Wii back to its original state or Download a NAND backup from someone else or anything like that or should I just re do the Hack and hope I dont BRICK my Wii?

    Thank you to any and all who read this or have any suggestions.

    I'd run bannerbomb again and reinstall BootMii to your SD card. From there you can make the NAND backup. Your channels are not working because they are forwarders, this means they will look for those channels on the SD card, but since you removed them, it can't boot them. That's normal and nothing to worry about.

    OK, thanks so much I appreciate it. I was kind of freaking out for awhile there. So my game asking for the update must have been a coincidence. Thanks again!

    Once you have Bootmii installed and the NAND backup done, you can rename it to "bootyou" or whatever so it won't autoboot all the time. No problem.

    You can retrieve deleted files from sd cards.
    "Stellar Phoenix fat & ntfs" is a pretty good recovery program.

    thanks Nollog, I'll try that first so hopefully I can retrieve my initial Wii NAND instead. If not I'll just run Bootmii again like Bitbyte said. much appreciated you two. Thank you for all the help
