    new to softmodding and in need of help lol

    hi all hope your well

    decided to softmod my wii today, its an old one (2006) and ive checked the chipset so no reason why it shouldnt work

    i used mauifrog's "Softmod ANY Wii" guide and installed the hbc with no issues and updated everything, but still im unable to load my backup disks?

    ive installed darkcorp and ive installed cios rev.21 as the older ones wouldnt work, ive also made sure the trucha bugs installed.

    im trying to load through the backup loader channel, is there anything i may have done wrong?

    i also noticed that when i installed the hbc, dvdx wasnt there for me to install? could that have anything to do with it?

    cheers for taking the time to read this and i apologise for my noobness lol
    any help is appreciated

    DVDx is dead and no longer required other than by some old non-updated apps. Did you install DarkCorp after Maui's guide? If so that probably fudged everything up. Can you launch backups through the regular disc channel?

    Hey Bud I don't remember anything in that guide about darkcorp. I have used that excellent guide many times for all versions 3.1 to 4.3 without problems. maybe you should read through again. when you initialy loaded hackmi it should have given you the option to load HBC, Dvd and bootmii.
    keep reading this site, learn how to do all things wii. read read and read again, I know you are busting your balls to play your backups. read again. use only one guide and one set of mod files, there is no need to mix and match things. Hard drive is the best way to go. with CFG loader, my choice. you are free to choose. All opinions are the view of the writer,

    Good luck start over, Regards Grandpa1959

    Not anymore. Installing DVDx has been removed from the last two HackMii installers. Your only option is to uninstall it if present. It is hardly required anymore usnless you are trying to play DVDs using Wii64 or similar non updated apps.

    DarkCorp's purpose is to allow backups through the disc channel. You normally can't load backups through the disc channel and have to use a loader unless you have DarkCorp. If you remove it you will lose the ability to do so and will have to use a loader.

    i agree its an excellent simplified guide and was perfect for me as ive never until today attempted to mod a wii, i meant no disrespect in the last post, it did however state at the bottom where it says about loading disc backups about darkcorp. no worries tho ive just finished installing it but still getting disk read errors, main one is 1179

    so having darkcorp installed as well wont be a problem then?

    I think it's causing your problem. It's usually one or the other. If you want to load from the disc channel you install DarkCorp and risk it interfering with other things. If you want to use a loader like NeoGamma you stay far away from DarkCrap.

    I would ditch DarkCrap because it usually causes more problems than it's worth and start over fresh with Maui's guide. But HDD loading is the way to go and I would recommend that over disc loading any day.

    Thanks Darkcide666, I use wiimc media player it allows me and my pals to use internet, load movies from DVD, play divx files, mp3, mp4 music vids. Do I not need DVDX then??????? As I said i'm no expert. But I admire all you regular guys on this great site. I only wish I had a local buddy to refer my wii mod findings with. I have modded many wii's now, I use Mauifrogs guide. Progressing on from Dogeggs, Shadowsonics. great works. I end my mods with Cios 20. using neogamma r9 beta 46, CFG 65, BBC iplayer & Wiimc. I have a copy of the system menu X PAL files i've yet to use,. I read lots of posts on this site. Keep up the great work and information, Thanks for your comments.
    regards Grandpa1959
