the forwarders seem to be your problem try each one....
i re-installed ios58-64-v6175.wad. i tryed using cfg they both (222,249) show me the games but when i click on the game it freezes the blue light on the wii comes on and thats it.. i have to unplug it to get it to restart (wii). anyother suggestions?
Hi Cile, I am new to the forum and have read over and over before I ask these ques. First off I soft modded my wii using your soft mod thread for 4.2 and its working great. I have a 160 g Seagate hardrive and trying to follow this thread to backup my games. Everything was going fine until I got to the step "Installing Loader and Fowarding Channels". It says I need to have ios58 installed. There is a ios58-64-v6176.wad in the wad folder is that what it is talking about?
It gives me two options I can use either Configurable USB Loader or WiiFow. Which one should I use or recommend?
Does the forwarder and cIOSx 249 (since I used your soft mod thread) both go on the hardrive? The reason I ask is becuse it says "Copy the Wad file to the Wad folder on my SD card and start HBC and load Wad Manager. Then select IOS249 and press A" when I do that on the wii the only 249 file I can find in the Wad manager is "cIOS249-v20" and when I click "A" load it won't. It says "did not complete and give me a code (-2011).
I'm I going about this step all wrong cause I can't figure it out. Every other step including the soft mod went great. Thanks for helping
how do i post a system check? and when i try to format the hdd it would not let me format it to fat32 only ntfs thats why i am stuck with only one option
you already have ios58 installed from my softmod guide....
you can use both .....wiiflow and cfg both 249 and 222 version....
put the wad on your sd(fat32) and install with wad manager homebrew apps etc dont work of ntfs(thats why we recommend fat32)
when you install the wad use ios236 to do it....
or go with fat32 for apps etc and ntfs just for games
20GB(fat32) the rest ntfs
I am following this guide, but I am a little bit confused
Copy the Wad file to the "Wad" folder on your SD Card
Start HBC and Load Wad Manager
Select <IOS249> -- Press A -- Nand Emulation <Disabled> -- Source <Wii SD Slot>
Select the Wad file and Press A -- Press A again to install - Wait - Finished
- - - - - - - - - - - -
I have IOS249 already installed on the Wii, and I don't have it in the Wad manager list. I can put it back on the SD card from the Modpack-AnyWii that i used to do the initial soft mod, is that what I need to do?
In messing with it I don't see anything like Press A to disable Nand Emulation.
And what does the ****** represent in the paths? This isn't even seeing my hard drive, it is a 2TB Seagate Free Agent Desk, it's on the compatible list.
Do I need to load any files on my hard drive for this to recognize it??
The ****** is just the name of whatever loader you will be using, i.e. sd:\apps\USBLoader\boot.dol, etc. just replace them with the name of whatever loader you are going to use... As for Wad Manager, you use 249 to load/install your wads, then you press A, next should be NAND Emulation <Disabled>, which should be disabled by default, if not change it to disabled, press A again, Source <Wii SD Slot>, which should be on that as default, if not, change it to it, click A again, then you will see the directory structure of the SD card, use the D pad to navigate to the Wad folder, pick your wad file you want to install, click A again...
If the packs for the loaders are used as is then you don't need to worry about the paths (just there for reference). When you extract them to your SD or USB they will be in the correct directories.
I ended up just making a small 100GB partition on my Seagate dedicated to the Wii and got it working another way
