Hey all. Last month my sister pilfered my Wii from my room. I didn't give it much thought, she does it all the time. The other day, I wanted to play some TvC, and discovered a warning message in the Disc Channel that simply stated "Unable to read disc". After a few resets, I decided to check my settings, and sure enough, it had been updated to the latest (at the time) firmware, 3.4U. Seems she had connected the Wii to the internet and downloaded the update since it asked and she didn't know any better. Yes, not telling her about the hacks was my first critical mistake, I just assumed she wouldn't ever turn on the wi-fi because all she ever does is play Mario Party. My second critical mistake; I went into a bit of a panic mode and decided that maybe undoing all the hacks would restore my Wii- of course, that means that in my panic I also removed the HBC... So now, I don't have the ability to read discs OR the ability to re-hack the Wii via HBC... How boned am I? I'm resigned to the fact that my Wii is now a shiny white brick, but I thought I'd ask here to see if there was any other way to return to my former glory that didn't involve spending $250. My last resort will be to allow it to update to 4.0 to see if it'll fix disc playback, but I doubt it will. Can anyone help?
