Need help on 4.2U
i am newbie to the gaming world, just bought a wii (never had any video game before in life). the first day i started it, it asked to update and as anyone can imagine, i pressed Yes and got updated to 4.2U.
Then started the hacking process. I read almost 100 pages on internet and thought the FULL GUIDE FOR HACKING 4.2 on this website would be the best thing to go. I did everything exactly as this guide said. everything went fine without any errors. i got hbc, dvdx, bootmii - all of them work fine. i can start Neogamma from SD card and play the official Wii Sports game that came with Wii from Neogamma. I dont have preloader installed though, thought that could give me a problem as still a newbie.
The problem is that i cannot seem to run any backup game. i dont have any personal backed up game though i downloaded a few as iso torrents and tried all of them. Checked the filesizes before burning them, they are all good. Burned with Imgburn at 2x speed. When i try to run these games through Neogamma, it reads the disc, recognizes the game, gives me the loading options. But when i press on Load game on DVD, it flickers the screen for a second, gives a green second for a split second and then goes back to Wii Menu.
I would appreciate any idea that i can try (or something i may be missing) that would let me run backed up games?
A humble thanks to all in advance who would reply...
I read other guides on internet and one on GBAtemp is saying to uninstall/install ios222, ios223 and ios250 in addition to ios249. i think i did only 249. are the others mandatory for running backup games?
I am finally able to run the backup games. The problem was that i did not dop ios36, 53, 55 and 70 earlier. i got this extra step from another guide on this site and it worked. i think the FULL HACKING GUIDE 4.2 needs to be edited with this extra step with the download link provided.
Thanks everyone for taking time to read my problem...
