Damn I suck!!!!
thank you for the usefull information. my wii was on 4.0 when I bought it and I upgraded to 4.2E then I softmoded my wii but I can not play backup games does that mean that I have a chip installed in my wii which prevents me from playing backups ? and when I try to play ISO from my HDD I have to remove the usb connection twice then it starts. so is that normall?
Yes if your Wii Is new then that is probably the case.I softmoded my wii but I can not play backup games does that mean that I have a chip installed in my wii which prevents me from playing backups ?
I have heard of people needing to do that with certain hard drives. So normal to an extent. Try a different loader.try to play ISO from my HDD I have to remove the usb connection twice then it starts. so is that normall?
Also make a post in the introductions section if you get the chance.
Damn I suck!!!!

Did you do this? If not the IOS will not be there.Note: For Offline Install Download IOS36-64-v3351.wad --Copy This to the WAD Folder On Your SD Card.
Also Please give more info then "It didn't work". What didn't work...what part failed? Did you get errors? Thanks.
