    Ok, i have a 4.2U, just got it for Christmas.....I started softmodding.....got to the Preloader 1 time....did nothing in it, got scared and stopped, VERY stupidly I reformatted and updated it, to see if i could, dumb I KNOW, no need to point it out, I just did.

    So it works fine, absolutly fine. BUT.......


    1) My warranty is VOID now....Is this correct????

    2) Also, I know more about it and would like to try again.....BootMii says the "CONNOT.....no vunerable ios" error...any help there i would apperciate....

    3) I might get a 2nd wii in a few weeks, could i NAND backup from a new wii to a different wii and restore it COMPLETELY?????(ie. UNVOID warranty)



    Again any help VERY apperciated.......................

    Thanks in advance



    I can't even find where i posted this .....very sorry......had up backup until i found it just to edit.....I was trying to put this in the newbie part....sorry

    1. No the warranty is still fine
    2. You need a patched IOS (read the stickies hint DOP-IOS!)
    3. See 1, however whilst in theory it is doable it is only done as a last resort to restore a bricked wii and not your warranty!

    Do you have cioscorp installed?

    Well what exactly do you want to achieve?
    Do you want it soft-modded or not - if you do then read xzxero's sticky thread in this section and follow it to the "t".

    I have read that i need to uninstall everthing and that reformatting doesn't get rid of any of this ios stuff, so i'm assuming yes

    I strongly recommend you read that thread first fully before mucking around with stuff you are not sure about.
    You will end up with a brick if not careful - two important points to note - never uninstall an IOS and always install Bootmii for brick protection if possible

    You could download loadmii, and lauch it directly from bannerbomb (rename the loadmii dol file to boot.dol, and put on root of sd card, then use bannerbomb).

    Then use loadmii to run signcheck or title lister, and it will generate a log or csv file on your sd. post the log or csv file here so I can look at it and make a tailor-made solution for you.

    (You can get all these apps from wiibrew.org)
