Hi, I have a problem, I did step by step in this tutorial and I successfully moded my Wii, the only problem is when I try to play any of the games I have on my USB the screen just goes black and nothing happens, the console just freezes. i tried 3 different usb devices and nothing helps
I googled online to look for an answer and even switching to option "force ntsc" or force 50pal doesnt help.
anyone can help? or direct me towards a solution?
I set my loder to system default for video as a global option and I never have any issues regardless or region. Maybe you have usb plugged into wrong port?
Try re-ripping the game disks directly to the hard drive using the USB loader's install function.
I've softmodded 11 different Wiis now and every time I use this guide.
Many thanks for your time, effort and expertise.
( Background: I have bought a used white Wii. It is working fine but apparently the
power button on the console is not working. I use the Wiimote to put the console to sleep
or wake it up. I don't have a GC controller & so I have decided to softmod the console with
help from a professional. The current stats of my console are as follows. . .
System Menu 4.1U
Homebrew 1.0.5 - IOS 36 v12.22
NeoGamma R7 - IOS 249 (Rev 14) )
Can someone please check the following list of the Version numbers of IOS's, System Menu,
HBC etc. that a Wii console would have on completing this guide? This is so that I can
specifically ask the modder to install all those.
Homebrew Channel 1.10
Bootmii 1.4 as Boot2 (or IOS)
ModPack.zip to SD Card
IOS Update.zip to SD Card
(Shop channel not required)
Install 30 Wads (ModPack)
Install 25 Wads (IOS Update) <-- Upgrades System Menu to 4.3
(Enable any hacks you like....block updates etc)
AP-V5.zip (App Pack v5) to SD Card
Please let me know if the above list is correct or if I am missing
Thank you :)
Posting a proper syscheck (directions are in my signature) will let us answer your question better than what you gave.
And for the record, IOS Update doesn't install System Menu 4.3, but does install other internal components (IOSs) that do make it equivalent to a 4.3 system, while keeping whatever menu you had (we recommend people use 4.1 per the guide).
A syscheck would be required to run on the console itself which I have never done.
My primary question was what the console should "look" like after this guide is followed.
I have posted the files & version numbers according to my understanding of this guide.
Are they correct & is everything included?
When I have the ability to run a remote syscheck, I'll get back to you.
If you don't want to wait that long, you have to meet us half way if you want to get your questions answered.
If you don't want to learn how to run a syscheck, then talk to the people you hired to mod your system.
I believed this guide updated/upgraded all systems to a similar setting making them all equal
irrespective of your current setup! Does the post-softmod console setup look different dependent
on what you current system is?
Mine is a used console. The power button on it doesn't work & the homebrew app give a persistent
blue blinking light on the DVD tray. I had tried it earlier. These are the reasons I did not intend to
make matters worse by trying to softmod it myself & hence my intial post (#17305).
But if the answer to my query (what are the post-softmod version no's of various files) is dependent
on the current system setup, then I will see what can be done. Thanks.
Why are you arm-chair quartering a so-called professional? These questions can lead me to no other conclusion than a non-professional (or more importantly, someone who doesn't care to follow our guide) is involved. You want to know what your SysCheck would look like -- find the spoiler in the guide entitled, "Cios FAQ- What this mod installs."
