Thanks for the hasty reply. I had my Wii modded on 4.2u and the drive was functioning fine it is on the approved list it is a 500g My Book. I only upgraded because I purchased Metroid Other M and had to perform an update to play it. Is there a specific revision of cios 249 and cios222 that works better with wii flow and usb loader gx? Occasionally when it does open, wiiflow will show my games with cover art and all but when I select play the Wii simply returns to the system menu. I'm thinking maybe some of newer revisions aren't compatible, I know that Hermes r4 is supposed to be but cios249 r20 is what I am unsure about. Please let me know if anything else comes to your mind. Thank again for your time :)
You are the man mauifrog. Works perfect on my accidently upgraded 4.3u!!!!! Well, I updated because my Wii would not read dual layer games (but reads 4.7gb and smaller perfectly) thought the update would fix the problem, guess I'll just have to plan on buying a new Wii someday... Thanks for the very simple walkthrough!
Excellent tutorial, highly recommend.
OK I just had my wii fixed by nintendo. I followed this guide without doing the downgrade and everything worked fine. I later realized that the shop channel was not working so I took another look on this site and noticed the shop channel optional thing and did that. I installed it using mmm and reset my wii. No big deal. I went to click on shop channel and bam the wii did what i had doing when i sent it into nintendo. It doesn't matter what channel i click on the moment i click start it instantly restarts the wii. I can still access preloader and bootmii and through those I can get to hbc. Anything i click on in hbc will work but I would rather not have to go through preloader every time to get to my games. I suspect that an ios needs to be reinstalled but I am not sure which one so I want to ask before I make a move and brick the wii. I can still play my games on my hdd just fine after going through hbc. any suggestions on how to fix this?
Can i play pal backups on my ntsc wii with this hack?
I blocked updates with priiloader.
