    Hey guys, I got a problem. I formatted my Wii SD Card with all my folders and Homebrew apps on it. I am wondering if there is a simple way to restore the files? I was looking through the walkthroughs to try to find the exact step where I setup my SD Card but I am having little luck.

    If it helps I used the Letterbomb method of hacking the Wii and I am running IOS 249, menu ver 4.1U. The Wii still launches and shows all the games on the USB Card but all my homebrew stuff is gone as well as my USB Loader GX options. Perhaps someone might toss me a zip of their files (or something, heh). Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Restoring your original files is out of the question. Formatting any storage drive will completely erase the drive and it's data.

    On a positive note, adding apps back onto your SD card is simple. All you need to do is create a new folder on your SD card called "apps". After you've done that, just drag and drop the folders of the apps you want directly into the apps folder. And that's it, you're done.

    As an example, your folders should look something like this....
    • SD:/
      • apps
        • homebrew_browser
          • boot.dol
          • icon.png
          • meta.xml
        • sysCheck
          • boot.dol
          • icon.png
          • meta.xml
        • usbloader_gx
          • boot.dol
          • icon.png
          • meta.xml
    Any other files and folders that are needed by the apps are typically automatically generated once you start up the specific app.
