    I intstalled a black menu on my wii a while ago.
    I was a bit stupid and did not do a wii system back up with a nadda or what ever its called.

    If I did do a back up then I lose all of my saves if I resore.

    But back to the main point my wii is a 4.2u wii, with some dark theem that I want off.


    How do I put the white one back in?
    Where do I get the white one from the net?

    Please some one help/

    Easy, reinstall your wii system menu with the required ios.
    Warning do not install LATEST IOS, they are stubbed and they will BRICK your wii..

    I want something easy to understand, is there a so called tutorial on how to do this?

    I need a bit more then just a stupid "restore iso's"

    Use Modmii to download System Menu 4.2U and IOS70v6687. It is important you download this specific version. Download any other version and you'll brick your Wii. Install IOS70 first followed by System Menu 4.2U using MMM or WAD Manager.

    Now you need to download IOS70v6687.

    You downloaded the right system menu 4.2.

    Easier answer for later (in case anyone wants it), using the original .app file you used to make the .csm with would install the original theme without needing to install anything else. For 4.2 that is 87.app and for 4.3 that is 97.app, it would just need to be "installed" with mymenufy. I realize their wii is already working, but if this thread is looked up later this would be faster and likely they would already have the file they neeeded (it is used to take a .mym and make a .csm).

    that place
    1. The forum isn't that confusing...
    2. There is no rep system on this forum. For a reason.
    3. I love making lists of 3 [​IMG]
