    sd card & channel help plz

    i have searched all over google, guess im not wording it right coz im not finding any forums on this. I thought i'd ask here for some help or at least would appreciate a link in the right direction

    First of all i have a 4.1e wii softmodded with bannerbomb and have softchip r99/neogamma r7/usb loader conf and usb loader gx installed for booting games. i have cios 38 rev 14 and have 249 and hermes 222/223.

    All I want to do is boot my ill gotten wiiware and VC from an external sd card, i have a 8gb san disk sdhc card. its formatted as fat 32 when i move a game from wii to sd and try to start it says 'launching' then seconds later 'failed to launch'. When I try to move it back to wii it says 'may or may not have been moved' but it hasnt so i just have to delete it from the sd card. I've noticed it takes ages to load the sd card even though theres only one game on it. So what am i doing wrong or what have i missed?

    Also when i try to launch the weather channel or news channel i get the message 'Error 109139 WiiConnect24 off' I remember needing to turn it off in a step to install homebrew channel. Can this me switched back on now?

    If they can't can i delete these channels and also the photo channel. I don't have much use for the photo channel and its just in the way.

    When i try launching the Wii shop channel i get the message 'there is an update for the wii shopping channel, please update' then a button to start system update. I'm sure clicking this will mess up a lot of custom settings and homebrew and probably brick my wii. So is there a way to get this channel without using the update button?
    thanks, guys

    I have had my WiiConnect24 on 24/7 for 6 months.
    You can delete channels you no longer want from data management
    There is an update wad for the shop channel.

    here Shopping Channel-NUS-v18.rar

    also internet channel although it is free

    Opera Internet Channel UPDATE v512 PAL.rar

    i got this sorted myself. If anyones looking for a fix for these problems here how i got it fixed

    first go to wiibrew site and search for wii scu, download this.

    start wii scu through homebrew channel
    update IOS 61 (-trucha) and wii shoppping channel to get access to shopping channel

    update ios 60 (+trucha) to get sd card working with VC & WiiWare on sd card
    WARNING updating ios 60 is dangerous as this is what system menu on 4.1 use
    this will also temporarily BRICK your wii if you are using preloader

    Preloader Fix (put preloader in apps folder on sd card again if you took it away)
    once youve updated your ios 60 start the wii while holding reset to start preloader then go across to homebrew channel using eject button then push reset to get to hbc and reinstall preloader

    thanks WiiJohn i turned on WiiConnect24 with no problems and can access news and weather again

    Question

    Does this work for 4.2U users? I am having the same issue unless I leave it on the console memory. Got a few that will not error out on the SD card.


    Soft modded 4.2U with cIOS249 rev14

    Also can I get rid of the banner bomb? Everytime I load my SD card it asks to run boot.elf

    I couldn't say if it would work for 4.2, hopefully someone will reply whose tested it

    you can delete bannerbomb from sd it was just a one off install to get the homebrew channel working
