    okay the strangest thing happened to me yesterday
    i had recently downloaded onslaught (call me a pirate i dont care) ive had the wad installed for a couple weeks now
    anyways when i turned my wii off and turned it on today onslaught was gone
    i thouught at first it was just a fluke but i called my friend and he told me the same story about how all his wads were gone
    (not including homebrew channel)

    any thoughts on this?

    ok Mr. Pirate , you have a Wii console ( great ) , running System Menu !!! ( ????? ) , you have Installed HomeBrew Channel and !!!!! ( ????? ) , Wii user agreement !!!!! ( ????? ) , now considering you might be running 3.3v2 and up and you have agreed with the new user agreement and allowed N to make changes to your system with out notifying you it will explain the Wad Disappearance , however can you provide more info about your system and what did you install so far so we can analyze the strangest thing that happened to you yesterday [​IMG] thanks [​IMG]

    @BIG MOE:

    Please stop. You clearly don't know what you're talking about. Ninty wouldn't do this, if something went wrong, then you'd be bricked and could sue them, and Nintendo never does anything which their lawyers recommend against.

    And the "new TOS agreement" isn't really new, they just changed the words to make it easier to understand the statement which was already present. It's all FUD.

    I don't think there have been any instances of N changing anyones system menu without previous permisson. Pretty sure one of the more knowledgable WII hacking peoples has confirmed that there is in fact NO CODE in the WII that enables Nintendo to do this. Still strange story and yes, more info is needed.

    Happened to me today.. I have 3.2U with preloader installed connect24 turned off.
    All wad channels gone and saved of those games gone.
    Gone:
    Onslaught
    Tetris
    world of goo
    Wad manager
    ftpii
    wiiradio
    tv game show

    Left on:
    backup launcher
    Wii dumper
    Super N emu

    Only thing I did today was change 2 settings in preloader. Diag disk check and move disk channel, I enabled them both earlier today. I changed them back now. this had to be this afternoon since they were all they earlier.

    I think it's some sort of wave, similiar to the ban waves that Microsoft pulls off. They could be doing this to attempt to wipe 4.0 Wiis clean to make them pirate free [​IMG] . However, Nintendo must not realize that people can still install WADs through cIOS. The longer they don't know this, the better.

    as I said in the other thread, I had 5 channels dissappear right after doing a ARCmod05a downgrade, followed by a usbciosv2 install.....Im thinking maybe its a wave based system where random users connecting to NUS are flagged and then.....(because primarily only stolen channels have this) random titles with the Region free bit set are removed.

    no IOS were removed....it's possible they can't get access rights to that remotely, although obviously they could overwrite them, since they do that (254,16) so it wouldn't matter if they couldnt anyway.....which is what makes it so weird that my HBC and 249 are fine....they have to be aware of them by now....why release an IOS16 and not a dummy 249?

    Here's my stats:
    3.2U
    "Legacy Wiikey" (v1 Wiikey modchip) with 1.9s firmware
    Preloader Installed
    No Backup Loaders or CIOSCorp installed on my Wii

    If you want any more information, just ask! I want to get down to the bottom of this issue [​IMG] .

    I agree with you bro [​IMG] , and IOS16 served the purpose already and it's time for another trick [​IMG] , IOS249 they can't do much about it or about HBC cause you can change the ticket code and install location from 249 so it's point less for them to fight that part , but I think they are doing a testing wave of pirated Wads deletion mostly region free ones but not system files neither IOS files [​IMG]

    I agree with both of you, also. I'm just worried that they'll take this farther: an IOS deletion wave. For those who upgrade to 4.0X, cIOS is their only ticket out (well at least as of now). If Nintendo deletes the cIOS, these people are stuck.

    Therefore, it may not be smart to update right now.

    don't make me laugh please I'm not in the mood !!!! go read a bet more and learn that if they delete your pirated files they are not breaking the law , and your law suite can kiss the N @ss , you are breaking the user agreement so they are not liable for what happens to your console [​IMG] , however they still didn't delete any system files or IOS so your console will not brick as I assume [​IMG] peace mr. knowledge

    Did you have an SD card inserted when this occurred? If so, check it for the saves. The weird thing for me was that the save files were copied onto the SD card -- maybe Nintendo felt guilty? [​IMG]

    do you other guys who have this problem also have launch wiis, it is probably irrelevant, but I was just curious.
