Original Game DVD with softmod Wii 3.4U asking for update
Hi Wii Experts,
I am new to Wii Hacking and sorry for the asking the question which has be discussed quite often in this forum but i somehow cannot get the full picture.
I am currently on 3.4U and already softmoded the Wii and install USB GX to play games from USB.
I recently bought a original Wii Game from Amazon and now the DVD is asking for system update.
i tried to install the Pri-loader but then realized (thanks to Wiihacks forum) that, it does not work for 3.4U system menu.
is there any other way of playing the game and remaining on 3.4U ? I am somehow confused with so many different explanation of upgrading the firmware and thought i would stay on 3.4U in case i can make my DVD run somehow on this system menu(3.4U)?
I would be highly thankful for any suggestions.
Read the FAQ in my signature, and you can whip your Wii into shape with the anywii guide in my signature. 4.1 is the preferred system menu, and what we recommend here. This guide will get you setup to this sysmenu.
thanks for the suggestion.
should i upgrade the whole firmware or only the system menu ?
I would follow the whole guide beginning to end. If your wii was at 3.x, it's likely that bootmii will install as boot2. If thats the case, you can recover from damn near anything. By following the whole guide, you'll get the new IOSes (necessary to run newer games) and cIOSes (neeed to USB load) as well as a bunch of other good stuff.
Thanks for the quick response.
My Wii has 3.4U but unfortunately it was not possible to install bootmii as boot2.
I soft-modded my Wii 2 week before from the following guide (<<FAIL GUIDE REMOVED>>)
except i did not change to new firmware (i also have the nand backup).
I am not sure from where should i start with the guide you sent me
do i have IOS58 or not ?
how can i check this? or the homebrew version ?
First, don't post external guides here. We don't support them, and the answer is going to be the same - use ours. You don't need to really be concerned about what you have or dont have, just follow the guide and it will set you to right.
thanks for your suggestion...
everything worked out perfect..
I just felt sorry for myself as to why i did not take your link on the first time i soft-modded my Wii
Although i still have some problems in using the WiiMC to run normal Movie DVDs....although the DVD do run but the Wii remote does not work properly and also the WiiMC media player menu does not disappear and i cannot see any subtitles due to the menu appearing on the screen also the video format is not in full screen.
Did i overlook something ?
I sorted out from the WIIMC guide how to turn off the menu
but still i cannot turn on or off the subtitle or change the language on the DVD menu...
it seems like the Wii does not respond to some of the options but still i am able to play the movie
Need some help
in a similar situation, i have a softmod wii with 3.4U. My relative came over the house and tried to play a game however it prompted them to do an update which they did. Now my backup games won't work and the orignal game that they brought keeps prompting them to download the update. What are my options now? Do I have to update it to the latest version you mentioned above to make this work even after an nintendo update? or am I just SOL. Please advice. Thank you!
