Thread: Modified Wii cannot play original games?

    Modified Wii cannot play original games?

    I've bought a modified already Wii and have been playing pirated games all the while. Recently I bought GH5 but it won't play the original game. Is it true that all modified Wiis are unable to play original games? What can I do? I've already opened it, can't really sell it right?

    They can play originals. It may be a missing IOS, install IOS56 with DOP-IOS or get the wad and install it via WAD Manager.

    An IOS is basically what wii apps, channels, games etc run of off. Different things use different IOS. E.g Guitar Hero 5 uses IOS56. Wad Manager is a homebrew tool and if you modded your wii you should have it in homebrew channel. It installs .wad files (basically wii setup files), you need to find a wad for IOS56, put it in the wad folder on the root of your sd card and install it.

    Whats a homebrew channel?

    So basically I have to download this IOS56 into an SD card and then install it on my Wii? How do I install it and what should be the name of the wad folder because I have never used an SD card for my Wii.

    It seems you don't have homebrew, take a look around the tutorials:

    It Depends, what firmware do you have?

    I believe you would have something between 3.1 - 4.1 so try this:

    In Wii Options and Settings, it should say your firmware.
