    I was trying to install cios 249, 250 and 251 to run USB loader by using this guide: http://gbatemp.net/threads/simple-guide-to-install-cios-on-vwii-backup-nand-and-keys.339890/.
    For some reason it didn't work when I was trying the ios58 base part so I decided to install ios 236 to run YAWMM and I installed a Wii ios58.

    Here's what happened... My HBC stoped working and I deleted it, after that I ran Smash Stack using Hackmii to reinstall it but it didn't work (freeze at Scam screen).

    Is there any way to restore my old vWii ios58? I don't have a NAND backup because I skipped that part of the tutorial...

    If cIOS is still running (though doubt it since its base is now Wii IOS) you could reinstall it. Seeing as you don't have a NAND backup though, you're sorta outta luck until you get a hand on it.

    Skipping parts of the tutorial isn't recommended. It was written there for a reason - to make things like this a simple fix instead of a nightmare.

    I still don't understand why people install Wii IOS even though in big red text it tells you never to.

    Hopefully you can get smashstack loaded, and run a YAWMM elf through it and load 249-251 that way. Hopefully you can find a copy of the IOS you need as due to copyright you won't find it here.

    I was thinking the same... Could another vWii NAND restore mine?

    It really depends. There was a couple vWii IOS that were touched during 4.x i believe, so it'd be a crap shoot.

    The more important thing is being able to launch an IOS with NAND r/w. Since IOS58 is out, all that's left is cIOS. If those don't work, it won't matter what you have since you have no way to write or read the NAND. 236 may work depending on what base it is, 250/251 are the others. Your 249 is most likely useless since the base is a Wii IOS.

    When you run HBC installer, check your SD for a log/text file and post it here.
    It will tell you what the offending IOS is.

    Remember that HBC won't used fakesigned IOS. So even if you dump it, it can't be patched or signed.

    I'm not an expert but I used the IOS236_installer_MOD_v7_vWii. I don't know which base was used...
    I've got a working HOmebrew Channel now but it takes likes 10 minutes to load. It's a WAD I installed that uses IOS58 to run. I don't know what should I do to recover the old Homebrew Channel and luckily Ryanrocks is handing me a clean NAND backup to see if I can restore vWii IOS58...

    you should use iOS 236 installer mod ''V8'' because version 8 doesn't require any wads

    Run Syscheck HDE, the one you're using is out of date.

    I ran Syscheck HD and IOS 236, 249, 250 and 251 have access to NAND and USB2... What should I do now?

    You'll need YAWMM or another WAD installer. Use any of those IOS to install the replacement.
