    [GUIDE] Blackscreens & Freezes - Causes & Solutions [GUIDE]

    [GUIDE] BLACKSCREENS & FREEZES CAUSES & SOLUTIONS



    You most likely ended up at this thread because you see a blackscreen on your Wii, or a game keeps freezing on you. I will point out the most common causes for blackscreens and freezing issues. Most will be easy fixes and some may be a bit more complex. Your problem could be one of these or multiple. The most common is out of date cIOS and out of date loader combined.

    First, if you haven't followed the Softmod Any Wii guide to softmod your Wii, that is probably where you should start. A lot of times things won't work like they should if you have followed a Fail guide from somewhere else.

    SOFTMODS & HARDMODS

    Loading a backup game from USB or disc:

    OUTDATED/STUBBED/CORRUPT cIOS



    BAD COPY/DUMP OF GAME



    OUTDATED LOADER



    USB HDD SETUP/COMPATIBILITY



    BAD BURN OR BAD MEDIA



    Loading from original disc:

    MISSING/CORRUPT IOS



    SCRATCHED DISC



    Loading Official Channels or Forwarder Channels:

    OFFICIAL CHANNELS



    FORWARDER CHANNELS



    Loading Homebrew or Hackmii:

    BLACKSCREEN,HACKMII FREEZE, NO VULNERABLE IOS



    BLACKSCREEN OR FREEZE / APPS



    Loading Gamecube Backups:

    BLACKSCREEN OR FREEZE GC BACKUPS



    Loading Original Gamecube Discs:

    BLACKSCREEN OR FREEZE GC ORIGINAL





    If you have a BLACKSCREEN when you power on your Wii, then follow the OH SH*T: Black Screen of Wii!!! Guide.

    If you are not receiving a blackscreen or freeze, but an error instead. Look for your error in the Error Index.

    Hi, i followed the mauifrog's guide and the channels that i installed using that guide (wiiflow, neogamma and others) don't work; when i open them, after a moment, appears the system menu, i can only open them from the HBC, why? what i have to do to use the channels from SM? I checked the boot.dol in sd and all is fine.

    The channels are just forwarders. Kinda like a shortcut. The forwarder channel looks for the boot.dol on either your fat32 formatted SD card or USB drive.
    The file path must be correct for them to work.
    The path should be for example:
    SD root: apps/wiiflow/boot.dol

    If you extracted the app pack v4, from the softmod any Wii guide, straight to the SD card you should have the correct file paths.

    Idk. Whenever it kicks you back to the system menu, it means it could not find the boot.dol.

    Try reinstalling them. And try formatting your SD card and extract the app pack to it again.
