    I tried gecko with an out-of-region NTSC game, and a PAL game, and I'm getting "Exception (DSI) occurred!" Then a bunch of numbers and such.

    OK, your ios look good. You updated online correct? Your pal games will not work with the chip, so don't try.

    Does the gecko os load? And crash when you run the game, or crash at load.

    If it crashes at load try this one
    CB2_BB_Gecko_OS_1.93dol.zip

    If it loads, try to change the settings for disk ios or similar to disk default or similar. It could to set to 249, which you don't have.

    When you load your games from the disk channel, NTSC what happens?

    Yes, I updated via my wireless. The Gecko OS loads fine, it's when I hit Load Game that it crashes.

    I tried that version, the OS wouldn't load at all. When I tried to run it from the card it just presented a plain black screen.

    When I load my NTSC backups from the disk channel, it gives the question mark + disk and says "Unable to read disk. Check the Wii Operations Manual for help troubleshooting."

    I am not sure the trouble with your chip, there may be a firmware update for it.

    If you want to get your games up and running quickly I would suggest following the 4.2 guide linked below, look into usb loading.

    Can you play any originals?

    Yes, wii sports loads up fine. Is there any reason gecko specifically doesn't work?

    OK, I had some time to test the Gecko OS via bannerbomb. It loads fine, but dsi exception when loading games, regardless of what I do. It works fine from the HBC.

    Are you able to access the config for your chip? I don't think I have any other ideas for you, other than softmod. Sorry.

    Yes, I can access config. I have the settings Drivekey On/Region Override On/Update Blocker Import/Wii Disc Autoboot Off/Full GC Region Free On. And damn, thanks anyways. Looks like I should've just done that from the beginning.

    [EDIT] I just put in a US NTSC blackup and it loaded fine! Weird. Maybe the ones I had before were NTSC but not US? I guess I'd have to use Gecko to get them to work, and Gecko apparently doesn't work for me. Well it's better than nothing. Thanks so much again for all your help.

    If you install the HBC you can run gecko os, and since the us ntsc worked I would guess that the gecko os would let you run the rest. It is an easy installation of HBC.

    Alright, thanks. I've heard there's some trouble installing HBC with 4.2 systems though? Will Bannerbomb not work?

    Bannerbomb will load many apps, but some don't run right, like you saw with gecko os. Installing hbc is simple. Just read part A from the 4.2 guide linked below, it explains it all.
