what one's are the apps when i un zipped it (use winrar) it only had 5 wad files and they were all ios
and on step 3 how do you boot it and install patches i don't see it
Everything ran successfully, but now when I rebooted the system, my wiimote does not show a cursor on the screen. The Menu and cursor keys work but not A or B.
Did I miss something?
AH..... Ifeel like such a newb!
Turns out I was sitting way too close for the remote to work! Doh!!
Anyways, I found that gecko 1.9 would not load any backup games. Kept saying no dvd in drive. Is that normal for 4.0?
Instead I installed the WiiGator 3 as a chanel and it works great! One thing though, I have to force NTSC on most games even though I enabled region free in the sysmenue. Is that normal? Probably should ask this somewhere else, sorry!
Thanks for such a terrific guide and package of WiiPower's utility tool. This worked great on all my machines including an lu39, lu63 and a lu65.
I purchased in hopes for a boot2 but no luck... All required to be installed as an IOS.
In any regards, I'd love to install preloader however I'm still on system menu 3.4u and curious what to do now after understanding Preloader requires either 3.2 or 4.0 system menu to be installed.
What are my options and what would be best? I'd like to understand what will happen at this point updating through Wii System update in comparing to using Wininkoko 4.0 patch if this method works and what restore options do I have?
One last thing, I noticed when attempting to go through Wii System update, it asks if I want to connect and then displays a warning screen asking to press A to continue or turn off wii by pressing power button for 4 seconds.
How are you to know what is about to be updated by the Wii System update, if even possible at all?
Thanks so much for something so wonderful :p
@insane - you had me thinkin wtf? for a minute there! gecko only works with modchips and the region thing gets complicated...
@wdforty - you can use preloader 0.29 on 3.4 but there ishn't any hacks for it on that sys menu...wanins update just updates your sys menu and ios60, leaving all the old ios where doing an official update does everything....have a look here for more info on preloader...
I'm actually looking for information to clarify what this means, espeically in regards to 3.2/4.0 with ios downgraded?
You mentioned preloader can be installed w/ system menu 3.4 however without any hacks? Does this still allow me to disallow system updates or is that included with no hacks, as I tend to think hacks as game exploits to cheat in some way or another which that I'm not interested in.
I'm truly only wanting to run preloader for recovery options as I'm not able to install bootmii as boot2, therefore setup as an ios leaving me out in the rain on a crappy day ;)
I've found this information to be missing from nearly every guide I've ever read over the past couple of weeks, not a lot of information on this and what's given is basic instructions for installation but, without details of what's truly going on, being changed and the options you have along with the benefits (pros/cons) of each method, regarding updating your system menu to 4.0 (making use of nintendos wii system update or use of waninkokos system menu 4 patch).
If I could understand the difference and what problems each may cause for me so I may decide whats best for my situation would be fantastic! Also, there's a lot of information floating around that updating your system menu through nintendo will brick you however many have stated that's not true and only from not protecting yourself by re-installing preloader and creating necessary backup which results from failed wad installations or other tampering, if I understand correctly.
Hope this makes sense and would love to complete this step as I have already installed using this method, created two backups already including one after hbc installed and another after completing trucha steps w/ cios which I used 13a.
I'd like to use the machine for mostly gaming and movies however additionally support for motion plus, wiispeak and ability to purchase wiiware/vc.
I have neogamma and usb loader gx and understand that process along with use of wbfs however this preloader and system menu stuff is where I'm confused, missing information that I believe everyone should try at least to understand, which helps in preventing a brick.
Any information, resources you can assist me with would just be great! Thanks
the hacks in preloader have nothing to do with cheating - skipping disc updates is one of them, making channels region free, allowing copy prortected saves to be copied are a couple more ;) have a look on wiibrew for a full list.
To put it simply waninkokos upgrader doesn't update your ios to the new versions, the old ones had a bug that was exploited to run unsigned code. The nintendo updater overwrites them with new fixed versions, but you can always run ios downgrader to get the old ones back.
I was told from a few people on irc this wasn't necessary unless they were omiting the fact I was wanting to install preloader, only making use of a backup loader.
There's so much fluff and everyone tells a different story however I believe what your selling to be the truth, so thank you!
How does one decide what version of system menu to use, is there conditions that force one to another? Links or information appreciated.
Be great if you threw this information into the tutorial, seems rather important to have this piece of software installed.
Don't mean to be a n00b but, I think it's important to fully understand what were doing and as I've mentioned, I'm not able to recover from mistakes as others w/ older boot2 flaws.
you don't need to downgrade your ios to install preloader, if you have an lu64+ you need to patch your ios36 using this guide (or another one i posted a few days before that this one replaced). The only real difference between sys menus is the sd loading that you get in 4, and i have heard that ciosr14 will add this feature (or something similar), if you want more technical info have a good read through wiibrew.org :)
Thanks for such a terrific guide and package it work great with the BACKUP cames but not with dvd please i need help please:)
