Nintendo Wii 32017 Error Fix
I hooked up my Wii for the first time in about 3 years. I remember I “hacked” it once using some kind of mod I found to play downloaded games. I don’t play games
When I plugged it in, there was an update available. Everything seemed to be fine, but after a few minutes I got the error code “32017″. anymore, and really just wanted to use my Wii to stream Netflix on a TV that didn’t have it.
I was able to fix it by doing the following:
I searched for a while and couldn’t find anything other than “You have to send your Wii back to Nintendo to fix it”. Typically all of the outcomes I had read showed that this was not an option – they end up saying its been “hacked” and they can’t fix it. Well, that’s not acceptable for me.
NOTE: I was using OS # 4.3U, not sure if this mattered or not.

1) Factory reset your Wii, it will erase literally everything – saved games, roms, whatever else on your system.
2) Use the “Smash Stack” hack to run a boot loader
3) Instead of INSTALLING a OS BootLoader – choose UNINSTALL on everything
4) Reboot your Wii and enjoy your update, netflix, etc!
