This worked pretty well for me. Just got through playing through the mini-castle in World 1. After about 30-40 min, just got a disc error. But this time more along the lines of "The disc could not be read." than the usual disc error that you get with NSMB.
But I think it should be fine. Thank you for this guide.
And like everyone else, I too prefer the load disc method. Softmod feels too unreliable as far as always having to install new IOS and loaders.
Yea followed the guide step by step and I get a green screen when I load it from either patched or unpatched copy of the game.
Hi, I am new to the hacking process. I followed all the steps and was very hopefully, I did not get the Error #002 message I was getting before. Instead it mentions that it will be loading the game, provides the details and then goes to a green screen. After that it boots the Wii menu. Any help would be great.
One problem most likely is that the settings menu tells me I have 4.2u I was hoping this wouldn't be a problem because I don't think I actually have the whole update. It never started updating when I went to do it and it still says I have to update my system if I try to access the wii menu disc channel or shop channel.
I am getting a blank screen when I load dop-ios
everytime i try running dop-ios or neoGamma i just get a black screen and my wii freezes and my wiimote turns off

Thanks, it works for me. Wii + D2pro + 4.1U + HBC + CIOS53 + NeoGamma R8 Beta 12 + NSMB unpatched on dvd.
I don't have anything else installed. This was the first time I softmod my wii. No other IOS, and software installed. It even works without loading the .dol on SD card. Been playing for like 2 hours.

A question, I get a message that says "you are not using IOS249 If you know what you are doing ok, @all others: Install a CIOS Press any key to continue" when I start up NeoGamma. I can't figure out if I need to install a cIOS, and how. Any help appreciated.
When I try to run the Wii disk directly, it will show the wii strap warning and then go back to the main menu. My other Wii backup disks still work.
This was extremely helpful. After hours of frustration from other posts, this was clear and easy. I had to update to 4.1 from 3.2, but I was glad to do so. The fix for Mario, albeit a pain having to use the NeoGamma preloader is a pain, now lets us enjoy this great game.
On the other hand, playing with my wife and daughter is challenging. We are too competitive, and this game requires co-operation! We played for 1.5 hours, and now are all very angry at each other.
This community is so helpful. Thanks so much.

First, just wanted to say, torange, you're awesome for such a straightforward guide. Without NeoGamma and other steps, was only able to play about 5-10 minutes of NSMB on a d2pro chipped Wii before getting a disc read error. After following these steps, I was able to play for a good 2 hours straight today. Yes it does defeat the purpose of the hardware mod, but at least it's easier than opening up the Wii to install the mod chip in the first place.
