Awesome forum everyone! Thanks!
I purchased a Wii from a friend who had already loaded the mods on a version 4.1u system using uLoader and a previous version of CIOS. I bought a 750GB WD MyEssential USB drive and was able to copy all my backups to the drive and everything worked great UNTIL ABOUT 5 hours ago...
I couldn't get Super Mario Bros. Wii to work so the first (and stupid) thing I did was to let Wii update its software! Oops... now I am at version 4.2u and uLoader can't find any IOS to use so now I can't play any games from my hard drive!
SO... I quickly became a member of this forum!
Within 2 hours, I formatted my SD card, installed Homebrew and DVDx and installed CIOS249 rev14. I now am using the latest version of USB Loader GX which ROCKS compared to the uLoader I was using before. AND NOW ALL MY GAMES WORK!!
All thanks to this forum exclusively! I hope I can help some newbies soon myself!
Hi and welcome to WiiHacks cyoakum
If you need advice or help for anything Wii related you have joined the right site, whether its hard or soft modded.
Don’t be shy, ask if you are stuck, just don’t expect other people to do all the work for you.
Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.
Make sure you post in the correct areas of the forums.
Here is the site index wiihacks ultimate index written by ShadowSonic2
If you are starting from scratch, new 3.1-4.1 written by Dogeggs
If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs
Don’t update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie
2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.
And please do donate to the forum if you are able so we can go on helping the Wii community.
I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.
