    I use force NTSC for my PAL games-helps when you get the B&W screen.

    So far I've tried the hacks.ini for V4 that was in the pack. The separate download of hacks.ini that was linked in the second post and the hash_hacks.ini for v6 after I upgraded to that version.

    Any ideas on what might be going on?
    What version of Priiloader are you using? You should use the hacks.ini from the pack if using any version of Priiloader besides v0.6 and use the hacks_hash.ini only if you're using Priiloader v0.6. Also make sure the hacks.ini or hacks_hash.ini are on the root of your SD card and that you are using the correct one for your region.

    when I was using priiloader .4 I used the hacks.ini found in the pack placed in the root of the SD Card. When that didn't work I switched to the alternative download of hacks.ini and overwrote the old verson with the new file. When that still didn't work I switched to priiloader .6 and used the hash_hacks.ini that was also placed in the root of the SD Card.

    I'm currently on Priiloader .6 with a hash_hacks.ini

    EDIT: Solved the issue. It looks like I forgot to reinstall bootmii on Boot2. Once I reinstalled that using mauifrog's guide everything worked fine. I'm currently doing a system update and going on from there.

    EDIT2: I can confirm that updating the system does fix the black screen issue that appears when you try to play new games such as Donkey Kong Country Returns. When I tried to play the game before I did the system update the game didn't load no matter what I tried. But after the update the game works perfectly.

    Hi, i have a few questions, if u kind to answer i'll apreciate I've wii, with bootmii installed as an IOS since mu console it's a new one and i can't install it as boot2, i'm thinking on trying this system menu mod but, if something goes wrong (always hope not, but we can never know), is there anything i can do to recovery? direct flash access, modchip or something?
    As i can read with this SM we can update wii from nintendo update, but is this helpfull? like if we need some update to run a new game, by doing this update the system will remain 4.1 with the same mods and the IOS's needed to play that new game will be updated?
    Sorry if i miss some info and i'm asking something already said before.

    Your questions suggest you're a newbie at softmodding. If you follow this guide, this would install Priiloader which would actually BLOCK disc and online updates. Your other questions are answered in the guide/thread, which points to the fact you've not actually bothered to read it:

This is a heavy mod and there can almost be a guarantee that if you fail this mod without having bootmii/boot2, you will be bricked for life. This is at your own risk

    I may be a newbie at softmodding, in fact i really am comparatively to u guys. But i'm smart enought to read the warnings and all the stuff that can go wrong when we try to softmodd anything. I understand a few things were said and discuss, and YES, i bothered to read all this post, and i know that priiload is installed, and i read to that we can acttualy update our SMX wii without losing homebrew. What i didn't understand or get the idea, the nintendo update updates some IOS's but can't update SM and other IOS's or simply can't update anything on NADN?

    Yes, with system menu x you would be able to install new IOS from disc or internet update without updating your system menu or loosing your softmods. As Nightstah said, this is really not a tutorial for beginners.
