New black wii
I softmodded a black wii yesterday, using: Amarokz Softmod Wii 4.2 Guide. This guide has never let me down. i checked the black wii with a copy of the new super mario bros from sd card it loaded and played no probs. the problem is it doesnt play back up games from dvd-r the games work fine for me but not on his. But load every time from sd.
i am just missing a vital piece of the puzzle.Can some one please help with this.
when i finished the tut i then followed this bit of a tut from this site(wiihacks.com the best site there is) to get the preloader installed, this is the tut :
The following are really optional and not needed to play backups. Also mind that incorrect use of them might brick you!! so use with caution!!
D6) This will install a hacked ios70 on the Wii. Please read below very carefully, as you may brick your wii if you dont follow instructions properly. A hacked ios70 is needed for 2 reasons:
a) Allows wiiware and VC games to run through SD card.
b)Allows installation of priiloader, which is the only brick protection you can get if you don't have Bootmii/boot2. It is totally recommended to install priiloader.
Here is how you install ios70:
-Start wadmanager from HBC
-Accept the agreement and with default settings (ios249 & SD card) press A to browse the SD card.
-Find IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad and press A
-Make sure you install and NEVER EVER uninstall the ios70! If you uninstall ios70 or any ios lower than 200, your Wii will suffer a slow and painful DEATH!
-Once you are 10000% sure it says , press A to install the file.
-Once it's done, press Home to return to HBC.
-Now you can breath.
In the first (amarokz) tut i followed, it uses dop-ios to install ios 53,55,70. do you think the second step of installing the patched ios70-64-v6687 has anything to do with this or am i missing something. Or did i not have to install the patch and just install preloader cause dop-ios has already installed ios 70
I did my friends wii with the same tut a while back but did not install preloader or the ios70-64-v6687 and dont want do it until i know what it will do. and dont want to get a brick.
Can someone please help me

is your wii also black or the white..... the new black wii's have new drive chips that block dvd-r backups.... you have to USB LOAD with those wii's as there is not a fix yet....
Yes the one that wont play back ups is a black one the other one i did is white one and works both on system menu 4.2. would it be ok to install ios70 patched then the preloader from the tut on this site, as i need some brick protection on the white one. even though i have already installed 53,55,70 with dop-ios, thanks for your help and replys.

Yes, on the black wii you should be on 4.2U sys menu.. so you will have to use messies tut (link in my sig) but like you mentioned make a NAND backup and priiloader and bootmii, the bootmii is really your brick protection. also make sure you re-read the tut before you go forward with added to the mods on the wii (black and white)
(also install at your own risk )
So just to get this straight. i have spent two nights reading the tuts. i am going to install the "IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad" then install preloader.(on the white wii) with the hack ini file in the root of my sd.
Also i have installed preloader on the black one i cant get it to change to load straight to the wiis system menu even though i have changed the settings to boot to system menu. is this right?
there is a problem with Priiloader .02 try finding the R32 release or reinstall priiloader V .01 on top of the current priiloader
This is for the black wii
