    I did something dumb and messed up my vwii. I was using MMM and install ios36-64-3608
    to use any title deleteter. I went to ATD and It said something about semi bricked, but I went ahead and deleted
    what wiiware wads I wanted to in installed channels and I messed up and deleted homebrew.
    I reset the wii u went to wiimode and started super smash bros brawl to reinstall hbc again and the screen was black and nothing happen. I think it was the ios36-64-3608 that did it. I install it on ios36 and said it was a newer ios. Please help!

    Why do my other games work? does smash bros brawl run on ios36? can I use other exploit to get homebrew to install a older ios36?

    if you can use an exploit on a game that does not use ios36 , you may be able to install the Homebrew Channel and use a wad manager to install the vWii version of IOS36 assuming you can find a way to acquire it and if one of the exploited games uses something other than ios36.
    I am not sure if you can install HBC without ios36 being present. I have not had to install it under that kind of situation.

    Lego Indiana Jones 1 and Lego Star Wars the Complete Trilogy both use IOS33 and are exploitable. Pick one up on amazon for ~$8. Like smash bros, SDHC isn't supported, only SD.

    Behind you
    *facepalm* I think it has been warned NEVER to install IOS on vWii, specially Wii IOS's.

    You are NOT supposed to install any IOS unless it explicitly states that it is for Wii U (vWii). Do so will either instantly brick your vWii or left you with problems extremely hard to repair (if not impossible to repair).

    Your first step is finding a way to install Homebrew Channel back. Do what bobmcji have suggested.

    There should be only one IOS 36, the one your Wii U originally came with.

    Did you make a NAND dump on vWii beforehand?

    Good, use ShowMiiWad on that NAND backup to create a IOS 36 WAD.

    I got the wad from the nand, but I have one more question. Where I mess up and installed ios36-64-3608 can I still install homebrew channel with Lego Indiana Jones 1 or Lego Star Wars the Complete Trilogy
    exploits?

    Well if the above post is correct indiana pwns and return of the jodi use ios 33 so yes the game and exploit should load. the hackmii installer needs an unpatched official ios to be able to install the homebrew channel if none are found you will get a no vulnerable ios error,the ios that the hackmii installer uses are ios 31,33,34,35,36 and 58 (correct me if im wrong) so ios58 is patched for usb2.0 support because you had previously installed the homebrew channel,ios 36 is screwed and cant be used. That leaves you with ios 31,33,34,35 all unpatched official ios. so yes it should work you are one of the lucky ones. You should post your results let us know if it works.

    I will post my results. I don't know when I'll get one of games for the exploits (with super Mario 3d world coming out soon) I will post the results when I get one of the games, or maybe both, I might start playing the lego series.
