D2Pro9 Chip and Black Screen on New Games
I have the D2Pro9 chip installed since June 2008. I have not updated any firmware on the chip (not even sure what version it is at). My Wii is at 3.3U.
I have been able to run backups until about the release of new games about 3 months ago. The new games are recognized at startup, but as soon as you click on the icon, the screen will go black. This only happens with the new games. My old backups still function.
I've tried reading other messages, but am getting confused as I think some solutions are geared toward people with soft mods.
I've also read some people not recommending to upgrade past 3.3U because Nintendo will be able to force updates on you without your consent. Then I'll see another message where someone states they went to the Nintendo website and upgraded their Wii to 4.x and the new backups now work. But is that a mistake to do for future updates pushed by Nintendo?
I'm also reading about using a WAD Manager and installing IOS55. And then using GammaLoader?
Some other posts talk about editing the ISO before burning. Again, I'm not sure if that applies to the soft mods or modchips as well.
Can someone please help me in my situation? Based on the setup I have, what is the best course of action to get the new releases working?
