    So I told myself that after successfully following this guide I wouldn't mess around with much. Now, however, I want to install wiiflow, mostly for the purpose of nand emulation. Slots 245-249 require different bases than this guide ultimately uses. Is it safe to follow the d2x installation guide and change bases for those slots? Will I run into compatibility issues if I do? Last, if I do change them, I can always follow chapters 2-3 here to revert them back to this guides configuration later, correct? Thanks for all the help guys, and sorry for all the questions.

    Hello, I have followed the steps but I have a problem in the part 3 - install priiloader

    ...
    select "load/install file"
    Install
    USBLoaderCFG.dol

    I was in the menu "load/install file" and it freeze, I couldn't move the wiimote (D-pad) to select the USBLoader file.
    I saw this written:

    ****If the wii freazes, hold the power down for 10sec.****
    ****Only install priiloader once, you need to hold reset to load priiloader****

    So I hold power down for 10 sec to turn off the wii, I turned it back on, the wii menu or priiloader didn't start even if I hold reset or not, the wii menu or priiloader don't start.

    It look bricked, but I'm not sure because I don't see how turning off the wii when I was in the "load/install file" menu of Priiloader while it was freezing could brick the wii, I wasn't flashing anything.

    It's the newer wii model (with the Wii logo horizontal and without gamecube controller port), so I had to install Bootmii on the IOS.

    In short, how turn off the wii in priiloader when it was freezing could brick my wii ?

    Thanks for making this guide, but I have a problem.


    I just followed this guide to mod a virgin Wii version 4.3e (letterbomb), everything seemed to go smoothly, but something seems wrong with the DVD drive.

    It worked flawlessly before this tutorial, but now it won't play any of my games. The dvd drive is quite noisy now when the disc is in (sounds like it's rattling), the game will show up in the disc channel and I can start it up to the point where the safety message is displayed (the rattling noise happens as soon as the disc goes in) but then it black screens and tells me to eject disc and turn off wii.

    I used a usb hdd to try to install the games on it (through usb loader and wiiflow) but every disc has read errors early on. I tried to copy a game on my pc to put on my hdd but my computer just thinks it's a blank disc....so I downloaded one of my games and managed to play it in wiiflow, but I have a sizeable collection so I don't want to have to download them all just to play them again.

    Does anyone know what happened and how I can fix it?

    Much appreciated.

    The softmod would have nothing to do with hardware failure... It is likely something was already wrong with it to begin with.. Softmodding changes the NAND Flash memory.. No hardware is affected..

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here

    Maybe someone tripped over a wire and SMASH it went to the floor, picked it back up, and pretended like nothing happen.

    But, yeah, the facts that you 1.) hear rattling from the drive while attempting to read game discs 2.) get errors when trying to install ANY game and 3.) your usb loaded games however, work fine, all these signs point to the problem being your drive, and NOT because of the softmod.

    By the way, Your PC CAN read burned Wii games, just not directly from the drive in My Computer. Go download ImgBurn and you can rip them to ISO on your PC. Then I assume you know what to do from here to get them on your USB device..

    I think it's time to do some investigating around about his now 'mysteriously' broken wii.

    I'd softmodded my wii the very first day I received it without even playing any game and since I can tell one thing whatever guides and files that are posted here on WIIHACKS work perfectly. I never bothered about my conscience yelling "wait, this can brick your wii'' I just did what I wanted to do and till now everything worked on first try.

    Offtopic I know, but an experience worth sharing




    Thanks to PEIRE for the awesome signature

    I too have done about 19 or 20 Wii softmods following nothing but the guides here on Wiihacks, all softmodded & updated without any problems. Everyone, you just need to read the guided through several times before jumping into it, the fine Admins & Moderators here will not steer you wrong. My advise to those having trouble, read, read & read this guide.
