    Unhappy I Fumbled the Football and Lost the Game With My Thread Title

    Hey,
    where do i start....

    iv got a black wii with a wiikey fusion (wasp3) & on 4.3E (i see its a bad choice round the net tho)

    Only wii party runs off a 8gb SDHC card via the wiikey slot
    & mario kart 'nearly' runs from my original 32gb SDHC card - it gets to the white 'safety' page & freezes there.
    all other games iv tried (inc other mario karts) just do not work

    now, i did try abit of softmodding before i got the chip, now i got homebrew & neogamma installed as wad's via wad manager, then when i got my chip i deleted the neogamma wad from main menu - but after realising alot of my games wont/dont work, i decieded to try re-install neogamma after seeing alot of posts saying to use it to launch games - OMG what a friggin nightmare its been! - iv tried doing a ios236 patched coz i get errors with EVERY SINGLE wad i try to install - the error seems common, but MY fix isnt! - its the 'ERROR = (ret-1 2011)' i think it is....?

    i didnt want to do a thread as i like to read around & learn for myself, but im proper stuck now.

    can someone PLEASE HELP!!???

    thanks

    Follow a complete softmod guide in our recommended guides section, instead of trying to randomly install things.

    lol nice edit on title.

    & i have followed softmod guides - more then one infact & nothing is helping so far - followed the 4.3 one perfectly as thats what my wii is on, tho when i done some softmodding, it was (as standard) on 4.2U.
    i done the patch because it says its where the error iv got comes from....or gets rid of it. & even seeing others saying it worked for them, but hasn't for me

    what is the norm for my error? or is there other ways around getting neogamma on as a wad?

    EDIT: also would the wiikey being installed after the couple of softmods make any difference? & as for the softmodding - i only installed neogamma & homebrew

    You followed our softmod guide, but only have neogamma and HBC installed?
    You know neogamma is the best choice for disk loading, which your black console can't do, correct?
    There are other loaders out there and that guide should have installed at least one of them.

    yep.

    bootmii freezes when i click it via homebrew
    & i wanted to try neogamma as iv read a few times/places that you can load games through it from SD card - i know my console cant do disks due to the updated DVD drive, hence me going SD card route, but my wiikey fusion isnt loading majority of games via its reader, so wanted to try the neogamma route,.......from what iv read anyway, it can load SD cards - it was only then i realised my neogamma wad wouldnt install this time - maybe thats due to the update to 4.3E i did....?

    can you recommend a loader for mine? bearing in mind my wiikey sd reader should be doing this anyway surely!?
    i have'nt tried uloader - any good?
    i do see alot of USB or HDD ones, but no SD ones

    Need the bottmi folder and it's contents (from when you ran bootmi the first time) to get it to work.
    Yes neogamma can load from Sd, but I believe a few other loaders can as well, and the money you are spending on 32 gig sd cards could buy you a hard drive.
    Also neogamma only uses the cios in the 249 slot, it cannot use the ones in 222, and 223. There are many more slots to install cios, but you will have tunnel vision to this if you are using it.
    The error you speak of relates to not having a cios, so perhaps you should try the guide again.

    thanks

    but i dont have original folder i started with, was done on another persons card while i didnt have one, then i blanked it, :\ just had neo & HBC as wad's/channels, but never used them once i got them there & as soon as i got my chip, i erased neo channel
    S'how would i go about this? (other then the guide again.......for now) i take it you wouldnt know of what cios is missing? anyway of finding out? thats why i thought the patched 36 one was what i needed after the error code in google kept pulling it up, but obviously it didnt change it one bit.

    better still, as iv got a new modchip, what i can do to get that to read my SD card instead of a manager type app do ya? didnt think having a proper hardmod would need me to do this!

    You might want to uninstall the wiikey as this MAY cause a conflict........unlikley yes but worth a try (just my opinion after working in the electronics engineering trade for 10 years!!).
    Then follow the complete softmod guide start to finish, my advice is read twice then DO once!!!

    Also, there have been instances of people having trouble with SDHC cards, some wii's just don't like them for some reason, I'd go with spending a few pennies on a proper USB HDD.........250Gb £50-60.....$75-85(ish)!!

    IN MY OPINION softmods are alot more versatile and user friendly/configurable. Why spend money on a hardmod when you do a softmod for free!!!! LOL. Just think the money you spend on a hardmod, you could buy a cheap USB HDD instead.....LOL


    @nightstah........apologies for the double post, thanks for merging.

    Since your thread title lacks, I further assisted (after another mod's first alteration of it) you with sending a message.
