    Just curious, I updated my wii to 4.2 without the methods listed here. Just plain ol update.

    My wii doesn't play back ups anymore and homebrew is gone.

    Plus side it plays retail games [​IMG]

    So my question is, is there a way I could use my back up games again? Or are my mistakes too great this time?

    Wow...Do you not see the stickied guides? The one that should stand out to you is the one that says:
    "Modify any Wii 4.2 & below, aka the simplistic mod"

    If you already were softmodded, you could have used the safe updater, but I guess you don't know how to search. And your name is google monster? [​IMG]

    Do you at least have the homebrew channel still?

    If not, gonna have to use banner bomb or something to use the hackmii 1.06 installer.


    Then you just gotta go from there.

    This got me a bit confused with the Newmod.rar thingy. Homebrew doesn't show this.

    2] Run Any Title Deleter DB
    Choose IOS 36 and press A.
    Go to System Titles and press A.
    Select IOS 222 and press A to delete.
    Select IOS 223 and press A to delete.
    Select IOS 249 and press A to delete.
    Select IOS 250 and press A to delete.

    just shows wad manager, custom ios38, dop-ios mod, cios installer, cios 222/223, mios patcher, preloader.29, startpatch v4.2u

    No. As zektor said, use Bannerbomb: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Bannerbomb TBRMOD: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=184295 and then what you wish with cIOSes and the like after.

    You are still capable of returning homebrew functionality. Just use bannerbomb hackmii v0.6

    these two different programs or one? I've done all the prep work up to step 5.

    I did trucha steps (a step after installing hbc, bootmii, and dvdx) from xexero's guide though. So I can just ignore all that and continue to step 5 of Zector's guide?

    If I understand correctly this should work:

    Bannerbomb (system menu 4.2 version) + latest Hackmii installer boot for the Homebrew Channel and Bootmii
    Trucha Bug Restorer, downgrade IOS15, patch IOS36, restore IOS15
    AnyTitle Deleter MOD to remove the stub IOS249
    Install cIOS249 using IOS36
    Load Dop-IOS and patch IOS70 if you want to move VC Channel (otherwise skip)
