Thread: Trying to set up USB drive

  1. #1

    Trying to set up USB drive

    I have a first generation Wii.
    It also has a Wiikey installed.

    My drive is very loud right now and having troubles reading certain discs so I heard I could run games off of a hard drive.

    Currently I have the latest 4.3 OS on the Wii.
    I have the latest Homebrew channel up and running.

    I was using the following guide to get everything set up being very careful to follow all the instructions: Removed Out side Link.
    Where things started to go bad:
    1. I downloaded (DOP-Mii and installed I0S36 as it instructed.
    2. I put the WBFS Manager on my USB drive
    3. I went back to the GSX site to download (USBLoaderGX_1.0_Installer.exe) and discovered that all the loaders are for IOS 249 or 250.
    4. I went back on Homebrew to install IOS 249 off of (DOP-Mii) but when I go to do so my Wii controller turns off.

    I believe the instructions I used are a few years old and I'm certain a lot has changed.
    Unfortunately I feel like I am half way into the install and don't know how to back out to do it correctly.

    Any help would be appreciated and I will try hard to give you all the information you need to make this successful.
    thank you for your consideration!

    Go to the link at the bottom of my signature Soft Mod Any Wii Guide and follow it all the way through.
    Please read the Guide a few times , then proceed.

    Thanks jax.

    What do I have to be careful with since I already have the IOS 36 installed?

    Thanks jax.
    Hard modding is quite a bit easier for me!
    There aren't as many checks you have to do... solder a wire here and a wire there.

    I appreciate the help and the incredible guide!

    I am on the step to install the wads.
    I did the batch install and the screen is stuck after the second wad.
    It says WII MODV3.2 in blue at the top.

    Should I turn off the Wii and start over?

    I restart the WII and went back to the guide and now it is sticking when I get to "retrieving file list".
