Yesterday I wanted to play Skyward Sword on my Wii, I put the game and when I booted it up I got greeted with a blue screen reporting some error.

I thought it had something to do with the "Disable Game Updates" system menu hack, so I booted up Priiloader, disabled that option and run the game again.

The surprise is that Skyward Sword updated my Wii to 4.3, even though my Wii was already at 4.3 :wtf:
And now since then any of my Wii games work, they get stuck on a black screen and my wiimotes disconnect (My Wii backups do the same), but I can play perfectly Gamecube games, WiiWare channels and VC channels, and I can boot the Homebrew Channel, Priiloader and BootMii perfectly too.

I think that "Update" messed up my installed IOS, so I'm currently installing the necessary IOS(es?) with ModMii and a SysCheck file I just did, would that solve my problem?

TL;DR:

-Skyward Sword gave me a blue screen with an error

-I disabled "Disable Disc Updates" and rebooted my Wii

-Skyward Sword updated my Wii from 4.3 to 4.3 again :wtf:

-Now any Wii game works, disc or backup, but I can still play GC, VC and WiiWare (And I can still acces the Homebrew Channel, BootMii and Priiloader)

-Currently reinstalling missing/bad IOS(es?) with ModMii and a SysCheck file I just did, would that solve my problem?

EDIT: WiiShop Channel prompts me to do a system update too, I thought 4.3 was the last Wii FW?

It's probably Wii Shop Channel itself that needs an update.
As for the disc update, you were probably missing or had some outdated IOS which the update check detected.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    Tried some drag too.
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    What's the drag part?
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Drag is cross dressing, of course.

    Ah energy drink
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Yeah but not particularly energetic.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Fuck those things, six self.checkouts in parallel are slower than one manned register, and they have to have someone stand next to them to help people and validate age if you're buying beer, and unlock the machine when it gets into the MYSTERY OBJECT IN THE BAGGING AREA OH GOD HELP, HELP, CALL FOR HELP mode.
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Produce annoys me the most about using them
  • Veho @ Veho:
    We have a separate scale in the produce aisle, you do all the fiddly stuff there and get a barcode sticker that you scan on the self-checkout.
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Walmart ones aren't bad when they
    work they're the equivalent to McDonald's ice cream machine
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Yeah but the downside is that they're in Walmart.
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Walmarts not bad if you don't have
    to talk to any of the workers
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Or the shoppers.

    Checking have you had any illegal substance within the past 60 days is
