Just for personal assurance, all I gotta do is download (4.1u)-System Menu-NUS-v449.zip, install with wad manager, and done, right?
No good. got ticket (-1035) error
So I am about to follow this great guide but wanted to just clafiy or gain advise before i proceed.
Background: Wife bought me a Wii from China, I live in Canada, some sort of mod (not sure what) as it has played some of the games i have acquired but prob only 20%, most load the disc icon but go no further other tha lockup..anyway...I Dl'd an NTSC TigerWoods PGA 11..it did some sort of update (In chinese) and now wont recognise any discs at all, the wiii boots up no issue. Settings page is stuck on Opera.
My main challenge is that everything is in chinese which really doesn't aid navigating the console or doing anything, but i've muddled thru thus far. I think it must be 4.x as it was the SD card icon, bottom left next to the Wii icon. correct?
So my advise questions...
Is there a way to change the language file?
Which region fix should I choose considering I live in NA - NTSC(U)?
The mod it has - I will open it up and check for a chip but not knowing, can I then put in the Wiikey fusion I have just bought in it? - anything i need to do / check / disabe b4 doing this?
To stop this happening again do you recommend a brickblocker approach?
Think these are my only need to knows b4 i attempt this guide - hoping its easy to follow and Eng rather than Chinese, unless anyone says different.?
thx for your time in advance.
Hi there, just trying to follow your very useful guide. i have a question:
If I have cIOS38 and do all the steps anyway will the hack still work?
Also, my Wii has cIOSCORPS on it, so some of the IOS installed in the guide are replacing the cIOSCORPS versions (as far as I understand it), is this likely to create any problems?
Sorry if this is too many questions at once
Thanks for your help
Load MMM, install system menu 4.1 online or via wadmanager
Load the MMM app manager, launch priiloader installer
You need ios60 install before you install SM 4.1. If you are not sure that you have it, you can install cIOS60-v6174.zip via MMM wadmanager, it will not break your corp.
Very helpful indeed mate. Thanks
I have already run Dopmii just to do the checks and I have IOS60 v6174 that I think I installed myself for another guide (from this forum). cIOSCORP still works. This means I can go ahead with MMM and install the SM 4.1e. Great!
Couple more things,
Should I be running my Wii thru priiloader every time and under IOS249?
If I turn the Wii off and back on will it reset to the system menu IOS?
Can I just leave it to system menu IOS except for when doing installs etc.?
Ok I'm off to try this out!
It worked! I now have a great menu in english and can access all system settings like a regular Wii! Thanks heaps for the help!
There are not many reasons to run the system ios on 249, it is not the best system ios. You should leave the ios to the default ios60. If you have 4.1 and ios60-v6174 installed, cioscorp should not work when the system menu is running on ios60. Loading ios249 is probably fixing this issue for you, but you should either install the cios60 I linked you to, or install darkcorp 1.1. You should have priiloader installed, with update blocks enabled, loading the system ios (ios60), and you should not need to change this to do anything.
The version of IOS60 currently installed is 6174, and I had priiloader 0.3 installed but it appears that installing the SM 4.1e has removed it, it wont come up holding reset while powering on.
My next step is reinstalling priiloader and I guess it wont hurt to install the cIOS60 u linked to.
The reason I asked about IOS249 is that when I was running system menu IOS (from priiloader settings), Dopmii and syscheck would not work and would crash/halt when I tried them. When I switched to IOS249 in priiloader they worked fine. Perhaps installing the cIOS60 will help with this.
Again, many thanks!
