    So, I accidentally updated my Wii firmware from 4.1 to 4.2U--my Wii was offline, and I got the "System Update" message when clicking the disc drive channel. I hit "Okay," and rather than turn it off immediately or restart, I let it finish, assuming that since it was offline, the update would fail. To my complete shock, it actually completed.

    So, this leaves me with 4.2U. USB Loader GX does not load, but Homebrew is still present and all of the relevant apps still work. From what I understand, in order to restore functionality to USB Loader GX, I need to remove IOS "Stubs," a process that can be completed through WAD Manager.

    However, when I access WAD Manager and press A to continue, my Wiimote desyncs, and cannot be re-synced. This problem also occurs when attempting to use cIOS INstaller and DOP-Mii (specifically when I "press A to continue").

    I have tried looking through every tutorial I can find, and I see no solution to this problem. My Wiimotes are synced prior to loading Homebrew, so it's not a matter of that.

    Any ideas?

    Could you please post your syscheck? A file called syscheck.cvs will be created on your sd card root, post the contents here. It should not desync because it will use the homebrew channel IOS which seems to still work.

    You're very lucky for two reasons:
    1. you apparently inserted a disc that included the 4.2 update and not the 4.3 update. Meaning: you can rehack your wii using bannerbomb (and perhaps that isn't even needed, as you apparently still have the HBC)
    2. you didn't shut down the wii during the update...that could have caused it to brick


    For the other...you're right about having to remove some stubs. And also about the programs that can do that (dop-mii, wad manager...perhaps try MMM?). Haven't heard much about desyncing controllers (to be precise: mine sometimes do that...but I can easily resync them). But perhaps this may have something to do with you not having an IOS with the trucha bug anymore (maybe it helps to install IOS236 and use that instead of the default...assuming your wiimotes don't desynch prior to choosing the to-be-used IOS).


    @FIX94: that last sentence is interesting. He had 4.1, which doesn't normally have IOS58, so...



    @Walrus: what's the version of your HBC? I'm guessing 1.0.8 (1.0.6 or earlier would have been removed in the update). Perhaps it helps to (re)install IOS58.

    Go to the hacking section and download Modmii, use the wizard telling it that it is a virgin 4.2 on your pc to get all the needed files.

    Follow the guide to reinstall ios236 and use this to install all the ios's.

    This is the easiest way to sort out your stubbed ios's

    The homebrew channel will use IOS61 then, so syscheck will also use IOS61.

    Okay, this seems to hit upon my problem--it's only when I try to continue with IOS249 that my Wiimotes de-sync. If I go forward with IOS236, the Wiimotes stay synced.

    What should I do now? I know of a number of different tutorials, but I'm not sure which one I should follow at this point. Given that my Wii was modded by a friend, this is my first time doing any hands on "modding" stuff myself, so I'm a little jumpy/unsure of myself...I apologize if I'm asking an obvious question. I just want to make sure I proceed in the proper way.

    Reinstall cIOS 249 it's simple as that.

    How would I go about doing that? Would I follow this? http://gwht.wikidot.com/ios249

    Again, sorry if I'm being a newb. This is my first time doing anything like this with the Wii, and I just want to be extra careful and make completely sure that I'm proceeding in the correct way.

    I see so many tutorials on how to do this--all with different ways--it's dizzying. What should I do to reinsall IOS 249?
