    until some days ago I was happy with my softmodded 3.4E Wii which could play very well all my dvd (-R) backups launching them with SoftChip-r102. Then I tried to play a New Super Mario Bros Wii dvd backup but SoftChip-r102 wasn't able to launch it. However I installed Neogamma-R9b47 and it played fine.
    Now I'm surprised to see that I have a 4.2E, but I didn't make any upgrade myself, nor I noticed New Super Mario Bros Wii asking me to upgrade, and my Wii isn't connected to the internet at all.
    The problem is that after this "unsolicited upgrade" all my dvd backups don't work anymore, no one of them. I suppose my cIOSes have been messed up, so I think I have to reinstall them again. Since my Wii isn't connected to the internet, when I try to reinstall my previous cIOSes with WadManager as soon as I reach the point where WadManager asks me which IOS to use it stops working and even disconnect my wiimote making all the four blue leds blinking.
    How could I solve this problem?
    Thank you in advance for your reply.

    As far as I know, the Wii doesn't do upgrades without a warning. It usually takes at least a few seconds (often times more) for the Wii to perform an update, and it's not exactly something the Wii can perform in the background while running something else. Odds are you missed it or someone performed an update without your knowledge.

    That being said, reinstalling your stubbed cIOSes shouldn't be a problem. I recommend following this guide and skipping to the part labeled "Update to 4.2" in order to make sure you have the most up-to-date IOSes, including IOS58.

    Edit: Also, I highly recommend paying close attention to the part of the guide that talks about installing Priiloader with hacks in order to prevent future accidental updates.
