Yes it is safe for you to follow the guide to update to 4.1. IOS35 has nothing to do with your system menu and if syscheck completes then your IOS35 is fine.IOS60 (rev 54321): Trucha Bug
Damn I suck!!!!
Correct. Then finish the guide of course.
Damn I suck!!!!
I have searched and cannot find a complete answer so I hope someone may have an answer for me!
My Wii has stopped working (maybe it got an update? Found that Wiiconnect was on!). When I turn it on, I go to the system menu from the Priiloader v0.3 (r45) to HBC and after selecting the HBC the screen is black and the Wii is locked.
In this guide, there is a section “Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed”…can I just follow this section? If so, after that section is complete, then I continue and follow the rest of the directions correct? Sorry this may seem like a lame question but it does seem that the section “Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed” may update everything and then I should be OK and hopefully the system will be up and running.
(system menu IOSv70 v481) (Priiloader v0.3 r.45) (Wii v4.2u)
Please help! Thanks!!

The only thing that will remain is the neogamma channel that was installed this can be uninstalled using the wad that it was installed with or an app called any title deleter....

Thanks for the reply, I really appreciate your help and all of the good info here!
OK….will be running the complete re-install tomorrow (Saturday), so I hope some of you will be ready for a question if I run into something (I really don’t want to brick it and wifey will be pi$$ed if there is no more Mario races!)
Thanks again! (BTW, I would have thanked you but Active-X is blocked at work...will get you later!)

Hi new to all this reading for weeks but still dont know answer.
Softmodded black wii at usb-loader step
My question is I have followed guide to the letter installed all 24cIOS without error -
Do programs autoload the correct CIOS when needed ? or do I need to do a setup before
I load programs in. eg. USB-Loader says ..FAT32 & NTFS Drives-- Install Hermes cIOS v4. (IOS222, IOS223)
4.3 guide states I have all cIOS needed ... confused should I just run usbloader from homebrew channel and will it find the coorect cIOS ( Think reading so many guides may have me a bit confused )
Thanks in advance ... (Wife said if I screw up just pack my bags) it her Wii
also... if you followed the guide exact you DO have everything.. and only minor tweaks are needed. following this guide should have CFG working out of the box...
SpoilerLoading Backups FAQ:
Does my wii load dvds? If it is new, probably not. Discs suck anyway, usbloading is much better. Disks must be loaded from a disk loader, like the neogamma channel installed on your wii. They will not work from the disk channel, unless you installed darkcorp. Read this for tips on burning- http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...ackups-24.html
Cios- you have:
Hermes- cIOS202-v5.1 for WiiMC
Hermes- cIOS222-v4, cIOS223[37-38]-v4, cIOS224-v5.1
Wanikoko- cIOS247-v20, cIOS248-v20, cIOS249-v17, cIOS250-v20
You have all the current cios needs, so if you have any issue and so and so says use this cios, you have it.
CFG-USBLoader has been set to use cios250-v20, this should load just about everything for you. But is you have games that need other cios you can use those as well. Triforce compatibility has been maintained with ios249-v17
Setup you HD for usbloading: You can use FAT32, NTFS, or WBFS file systems. FAT32 is recommended, so I think you should use FAT32, but you do what you like.
These guide will explain this topic in more detail-
FAT32 Hard Drives - Formatting, Loading, Ripping, Playing
Loading and Playing Wii Backup Games from USB HDD

Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more hereShift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1
First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site (wiihacks.com) or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one person’s opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Let’s get started!
Outlook On Forum RulesNow I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away… It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... It’s still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with “speed reading”...
Why we have rules on this siteThe rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. I’m only going to hit a few.
Conduct - We know it’s the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bully’s/and plain jack ass’s... We don’t like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so don’t do it.
Piracy – This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We don’t want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big “N” (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.
Personally, I don’t care what you do... I don’t care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. It’s your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.
We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I won’t allow a poor decision result in losing this site.
Cheating – Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.
There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant...
“So you Think You’re a Hacker”Warning: Spoiler below is a rant.
"Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol
The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant
“Need Help?”That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...
We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…
Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...
"Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.
Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..
Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!
Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....
More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out!
Thanks for this great guide (:
I've made a backup copy of my Indiana Jones Adventures PAL game, can I use that for softmodding?
Or do I need to use my original / genuine game?
