Hey guys. I've found myself in quite an odd situation involving my Wii. I'm new to the homebrew scene and soft-modded my Wii about 2 or so months ago. Today, I came home from work to find that something was wrong with my wii. While I was gone, my little brother and his friend had attempted to play an original copy of an NTSC version of Super Mario Galaxy 2. Apparently, the game started up and began to update. I found this quite strange considering I had a 4.2U softmodded wii; i didn't think it would need to update! but it did nonetheless. My brother powered off the Wii mid-update fearing that it would in fact brick the wii. Now when I turn on the wii i am confused. Several things seem to be working quite normally, such as WiiMC which runs with no issues. Yet USBLOADER takes me to a black screen listing "exception dsi occurred""stack dump" and "code dump". Neogamma also doesnt function as it should. It starts up, but doesnt display the same options that I had before. (such as the ability to choose where i wanted to load the game from; sd, dvd, usb etc.) My wii system menu seems to be working perfectly along with the wii settings menu. Some facts about my wii: It is an NTSC. system menu version 4.2U and my homebrew channel works. I did not install preloader and bootmii on my wii. (which i now regret.) I haven't a clue what seems to have gone wrong! I don't even know why the wii tried to update when it was already at 4.2. I wonder, is it possible my CIOS's were wiped out? Such as the ones needed to run Neogamma and USBLOADERgx? Any help that can be given would be greatly appreciated. I'm seriously shocked this has happened and would really love to ameliorate this terrible situation. Thank you very much GBAtemp community!
