    Hello, everyone!

    About half a year ago now, I had softmodded my Wii U's vWii to get the Homebrew Channel up and running on there. After a few weeks passed, I had the intention of using USB Loader GX to play and rip my Wii discs from and to a USB.

    But what I didn't know is that you shouldn't have messed around with the vWii IOSs and that you should have installed cIOSs, instead. So, what I (stupidly) did was obtain a patched IOS58 (EEK!*) and install it into the vWii NAND (killing the existing vWii-IOS58 optimised exclusively for vWii)! Without knowing what I did wrong and thinking everything was okay, I exited HBC and went back into it (because I forgot to do something) only to find a black screen in the end!

    *I say 'eek!' because HBC relies on IOS58 to load!

    This has led to my Wii U being unable to update when in Wii U mode, slapping me round the face with error 162-3006. Can someone show me how to reinstall fresh vWii IOSs so I can be able to get Wii U updates again?

    Thanks in advance! ^_^

    Points to have in mind when answering me:
    • I can only load up ELF files since I only have Bathaxx with me now, and not HBC or Twilight Hack which I can't use anyway.
    • Because of the above statement, sending me links to DOL files will be no good, unless there is a DOL loader out there which is in the form of an ELF. In which case, send me the link to the DOL loader.
    • For some weird reason, I installed "IOS58-64-v6432"(apparently the vWii IOS58) but still didn't work?!
    • When I use YAWMM (through Bathaxx), it will crash 75% of the time when trying to load an IOS. (Even when I still apply patches manually (choose IOS248, then choose IOS249 or 236) it won't work most of the time, still.)
    • Someone needs to send me a link to SysCheck in the form of an ELF file, so I can post a SysCheck later on.

    Are you sure about 248?

    248 used to be an old D2X wiiCIOS. D2X v10 should have been installed in 249-251.
    Not sure how you got the IOS58 installed, but if it didn't work, it's very likely a fakesigned copy.

    You'll need to obtain a proper (not fakesigned) IOS 58 (PM me if you want it), then install it with YAWMM (make sure you get the latest version) with IOS 236. But definitely post a syscheck first.
