I am trying to remod my newly repaired Wii using mac osx. I just received it back from repair (new disc drive and mother board), and it was updated to 4.3U. I installed HBC using the SSBB method, and downgraded to 4.1U using a video tutorial. Everything seems to work fine in HBC except playing back ups from dvd-rís; I get Err (1208) via every loader, possibly due to the new disc drive not being able to play dvd-rís. I have also installed usb gx loader to play my isos via hdd but it doesnít locate the games. My hdd is formatted FAT 32, with a partition section formatted to WBFS for the games(using WBFS for MacOS X v1.2 to put isos on the drive) . I was thinking that either the usb loader gx is outdated, or that I have the wrong cIOSX installed, or maybe that my entire drive should be formatted to WBFS. Any help for guidance you could give would be greatly appreciated. It has been kind of tricky finding the right steps to do this on a mac, but I will explore the forums this evening and try to get going. I am dying to play Monster Hunter Tri!
