    Inability to install StartPatch that got worse

    I have a Wii with System Menu 4.1E. I used Bannerbomb long ago to install Homebrew Channel so I could play the imported GameCube games I own. Later I installed IOS56 and the new Shop Channel so I could buy some games.

    Then, a week ago, I wanted to play Sonic Colours. Unfortunately, the game comes with an update to System Menu 4.2. I turned off my Wii, googled, and eventually asked for help on a video game message board I frequent. It was suggested that I install StartPatch to block disc updates.

    I used[outside guide link removed]guide.

    According to the guide, I needed IOS236 first. I downloaded the installer and installed IOS236 without a problem. Next I tried to install StartPatch, but it gave me an ES Identify error. According to the guide this meant that I needed to install d2x or upgrade to System Menu 4.2.

    Wary of installing another cIOS, I tried to upgrade. The first step was upgrading boot2 to version 4 using DOP-Mii. However, the latest DOP-Mii doesn't include the upgrade. Getting the upgrade as a .wad file seemed to be a pain, so I backed out.

    I installed d2x as IOS248 with IOS38 as base. The guide suggested the base, but didn't tell me in which slot to put the cIOS, so I just took the first regular slot.

    At this point, I tried to install StartPatch again, but it still didn't work. It gave me the same error. I tried to install using several different IOS, but none worked.

    Next I wanted to run a system check using DOP-Mii, but it gave me a DSI exception. Subsequent tries had the application freeze. I kept trying, and sometimes I'd get a DSI exception again, and other times it'd freeze.

    I figured that maybe IOS248 was to blame, but as DOP-Mii became unusable I couldn't remove it that way. I tried the WiiBrew version of DOP-Mii, which patched my IOS236, but otherwise had the same problems.

    The only other way to remove cIOS that I knew of was Multi Mod Manager, so I put it on my SD card. But the application also got me a DSI exception and freezes.

    I wondered if changing the IOS in use would help, as both DOP-Mii and Multi Mod Manager run as IOS61 by default. I quickly changed the used IOS in Multi Mod Manager, and it didn't freeze any more. Could I somehow have corrupted it by trying to run the StartPatch installation using it? I thought it didn't modify those.

    I removed IOS248, or so I think. It stayed in the list. Next I wanted to reinstall IOS61 to hopefully fix it, but then it started asking me questions about fake-signing and permission, and it hit me that I didn't know what I was doing, and I turned my Wii off.

    Does anyone have an idea of what's wrong, and what I can do to fix it? I wasted a lot of time on this, and I'm getting desperate.

    If you want to use outside guide that's your call. Don't post them here or ask for support here. I suggest the you go to the site you found the guide on if you would like to continue that route.

    Personally I think you should update your old mod with the softmod any wii guide we have on this site. There is a link to it in my signature. Startpatch is an old program, priiloader is what you should be using now. If you follow the guide we have you should be all up to date and have priiloader in there to prevent any updates.

    Why the hostility? I just want to understand what went wrong and fix my problem, and this message board looked like a good place to ask for help.

    If you're all going to be so unhelpful, snotty and elitist, please remove my account now. I want nothing to do with such a community.

    In the first part of my response I was pointing out what you should have already known, had you read the rules that you accepted. My other option was to just call fail and delete it, I opted to try and point you in the right direction regarding our rules. The user that posted after me should read the rules as well, post are supposed to be contributory. If you read the second part of the post you will see my advice. If you follow that advice you will be happy with the performance of your wii. If you would really like to be removed from wiihacks then I can take care of that for you, just repost and it will be done.

    I did read the rules (and read them again), and there's nothing in them that prevents me from asking for help after following a guide that is not from this website.

    Your suggestion was not going to help me detect or restore possibly broken IOS.

    I guess you didn't read this...
    g) Should you post a response to a query that provides a link, that link should be directly to the open source material and not just to another information forum of an outside Website.

    My suggestion to follow the guide I referenced would have fixed all of your ios/cios issues.
    So whats the verdict on the account deletion?

    StartPatch is not an old, out of date application. StartPatch has been fully updated to work with the latest system menu (second version of the 4.3 system menu). Maybe StartPatch is being confused with StarFall? User beware, StartPatch and Priiloader do not play well together.

    Thanks Stomp, I used to use Startpatch but switched to priiloader and assumed Startpatch was off the radar. My mistake. I remember the "warning startpatch does not play well with priiloader" but forgot to mention it.
