    First wii hacking really should not be that hard. More importantly other than redoing the basic stages of the hack much of it should stem from the SD card anyway (or can be made to be so before you send it off).

    That said assuming what GamerzHell9137 is not the case (and I have no grounds to argue it is not) you said your local store- assuming it is not a port replacement it points at a somewhat higher level piece of fixing unless they straight up replace the motherboard which is not that cheap either and none of it is something every shop can be expected to do. To that end you might want to elaborate on what you expect your "local store" to do.

    Most cIOS'es don't support using both USB ports for loading - only the latest revisions do, and the feature is in beta stages of development.

    Your Wii is not broken. If that was the case, both USB slots would be "loose" on the board and probably wouldn't work - they're on a single "piece", see? Right next to the memory card slots.

    Come on, that "Rehacking BS" takes less than 15 minutes.
    Assuming you used Modmii, that is.

    If your USB port is really broken then I can fix it. I have a spare on hand just for this type of a situation.

    I would say to check to see if it is physically broken. Also, put some apps on your usb drive then go into HBC and try your USB drive in both ports. HBC will use either USB port.
