    Hi everyone, this is my first post, and I'm in need of some help. Okay, heres the story.

    I softmodded my wii a while ago by downgrading firmware and installing the homebrew channel and backup launcher (I just followed some guide, I don't know how it worked). Recently I gave my brother my Wii since I wasn't using it at the time. He didn't know how to use the backup launcher so he launched a game the regular way and upgraded my firmware back up to 4.1U. Now, everytime I try to launch a game or look at the files in my SD card, it either freezes or restarts. Although I can still access the homebrew channel.

    Now, I have no idea how to get my firmware back to normal or fix what has happened.

    Is my wii bricked?

    If not, how do I downgrade my firmware again?

    And should I just abandon all hope and sell my Wii for scrap metal?

    Thanks guys, in advance.

    You should read the guide. Because it tells you how to get the update.zip

    No need to downgrade the Wii either. Just get things working again and be happy once it's all running.

    I honestly don't see the link to download the update.zip file. Can someone point me in the right direction of where the link is on his modding guide thread?

    the 1st part says

    Setting up the SD Card
    1st download the precompiled link update.zip for your region by emailing simplisticmod@gmail.com
    Extract the "update.zip" & put the files onto a SD card & insert the SD card into the Wii.

    you message the said email, and it sends you a link the files, what part of that dont you understand?

    are you serious? give up on modding your wii if you cant even read the guide properly.

    Setting up the SD Card
    1st download the precompiled link update.zip for your region by emailing simplisticmod@gmail.com
    Extract the "update.zip" & put the files onto a SD card & insert the SD card into the Wii.

    Someone should just make a thread about reading read-me's/the installation instructions FIRST to avoid bricking and many common questions. Reading is a quite useful skill these days.
