    I just now registered because I have a problem now. I didn't need to register before because everything had gone well. I did skim through the forum rules, and I admit I didn't read it until the last period, but I did make sure I posted this in the correct sub-forum and give a detailed and clean explanation of my problem. I understand that you don't want other users clicking on links by other sites in order to preserve the exclusivity of the procedures posted on this site. I already apologized for it. I acknowledge it was a noob mistake of mine which I will not reproduce, and I apologize once again. It will be very unpleasant if I'm still judged on this ground at this point... I plan on donating what I can to the site for having helped me throuhgout the years I needed to hack my Wii.

    As to my actualy problem:
    To my knowledge, I was simply using cIOS 222 with WiiFlow and everything was working fine, but I'll take your word for it because chances are, you know about this much more than me­.

    I'll come post my results when I complete a fresh hack of my wii when I get back home from work (installing the correct cIOS from bottom up -- HBC is already installed). But before I do, can I simply replace the cIOS/patched IOS I have currently on my Wii with newer ones? I know that for the most part, "updating" a cIOS simply means "replacing it with a newer version," but I'm asking just in case. Thanks for the help in advance.

    Yes, if you follow the guide it will just overwrite what you have there.

    Is it absolutely necessary to follow this step? I mean, I'm on System 4.3U (v513) and I don't want my wii to be bricked if my kid brother plays around with the system menu and accidentally upgrades my wii from nintendo..

    from http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
    Select the folder "System Menu 4.1" -press A
    Never Uninstall IOS, or SM you will brick your wii
    Never Uninstall IOS, or SM you will brick your wii
    Press (1) to "Install all Wads" - Press A
    3 wads should install without error
    "Press any button to continue"
    Be sure all 3 wads install, very important
    This installs a version patched SM, which I recommend. If this bothers you, don't do it.
    Never Uninstall IOS, or SM you will brick your wii
    Never Uninstall IOS, or SM you will brick your wii
    WARNING: This is a version patched System Menu, running on a version patched cios60. NEVER replace cios60-v54321 with ios60-6174. Doing so will brick your wii if you update from Nintendo. Never update from Nintendo, don't MUCK up cios60-v54321. You have been warned.
    I'm assuming it's not necessary, but I'd like to know what this does actually. The maker of this guide says he recommends this, but doesn't explain why. Thanks for the clarification.

    If you have an older wii, 4.1 allows you to play backups from disc. 4.2 and 4.3 were nothing more than homebrew killers, there was no additional functionality added. Also, the 4.1 system menu maui has put in this guide has been set up so that it would be almost impossible for you to accidentally update and brick. Of course, you should enable your priiloader hacks as well.

    Well, the sole purpose of me doing this hack is to avoid using my game discs, (to avoid them being scratched -- I compare them to PC installation discs) and because I'm too lazy to switch discs .

    I followed the softmod any wii guide (sans the 4.1 sm part). I might actually go ahead and do that too if you think it's better (this means I'd be downgrading to system 4.1, correct?).
    I still seem to have the same issues I previously had. I'm testing the games out now, I'll post the results when I'm ready. Here's my syscheck:

    Spoiler



    EDIT: Yup. Exact same issue persist. I tried loading the games using 249 with WiiFlow and CFG USB Loader, and the games freeze or give me black screens after they launch (eg: DKC after I select a stage, Twilight Princess after I press A+B, New SMB after the wiimote strap warning, and so on...). 222 also gives me that. 248 seems to lose connection with my wiimote at some point.

    EDIT2: Epic Mickey works fine, so that scratches out the possibility that it's a hardware-related problem.

    EDIT3: I'm beginning to feel like my game dumps are corrupt. I'm going to try to erase and reinstall a game that wasn't working.

    EDIT4: ...................................and I was correct. My Twilight Princess froze after I fressed A+B. I deleted it using WiiFlow. Reinstalled it on my USB HDD using WiiFlow. Launched it with the exact same settings. Works like a charm. I guess sometime between the period I stopped playing and now, the game files on my HDD got corrupt (we moved around the console a lot lately due to renovations, we probably dropped the HDD or something)...... well, the up side is that at least my Wii is up to date now, and other people having similar issues might read this and try re-dumping their games to see if the problem comes from corrupt ISOs. Thanks for all of your hlep!
