    I lost my SD card, can't remember what Cios and such I installed. Should I reformat my Wii and re mod my it again from scratch? I packed it up last Christmas when I got my Wii U, so I'm a little fuzzy on fixing it. And No, I don't to softmod my vWii. I'm scared I'll get bricked, I've read lots of warnings about mod it.

    Get/borrow another SD Card and use Syscheck on it. Syscheck can analyze your Wii's makeup.

    how long does it normally take to run the syscheck? Also I'm running it with a microsd card in a adapter.

    Edit - Seems like Syscheck froze during IOS vulnerabilities testing. Not sure what to do now.

    Are you using the latest syscheck version? TBH I'm not an expert in the program itself.

    I softmod virgin Wii's all the time. I just use ModMii to get the Homebrew channel installed, and then use PimpMyWii to finish up the rest. And to anyone that thinks it's "BrickMyWii", you're a misinformed dumbass that must have used it wrong. I've been using it since 2012, and not a single brick. It helps to also have PriiLoader Mod and a NAND backup too. ;)

    This doesn't help me, I already have HBC installed. I just need to know where to go from here since I don't have my original SD files. I don't know what version of USBloader gx to use. Or if I have something installed I shouldn't.

    If you have ANY SD card, just put PimpMyWii on it with the latest USB Loader GX, and run PimpMyWii. It will download everything you need to run usb backups, as well as fix and update any IOS that need updating or installed :)

    Hi Gettwobirdsstone,

    since you say ..."I packed it up last Christmas" - I assume it was doing everything you needed of it, and since wiiU launch, wii homebrew development has slowed down as you would expect.
    so probably best to do nothing!

    looking at your syscheck, only things that are older versions are:
    249 / 250 cIOS's - latest is d2x version v10 http://gbatemp.net/threads/ciosx-rev21d2x-yet-another-hot-fix.277659/
    Dios Mios is upto version 2.11 http://gbatemp.net/threads/dios-mios-lite.329342/
    Priiloader also had an updated release earlier this year
    If you are gonna start upgrading have a look at modmii: http://gbatemp.net/threads/modmii-for-windows-official-support-topic.207126/

    ........but you're probably best leavin' it alone :)
