Last resort (Loading...)
I hate asking people to tell me what to do, so trust me I've tried EVERYTHING else.
I bought a 3.3U wii about a year ago and updated it to 4.3U. I went through the downgrade process and now I've got a 4.1U North American wii.
I'm using a hard drive that I've verified with 3 other people that it does work with the Wii. I have a 100gig FAT32 partition for movies and whatnot but the games are on a 400ish gig WFBS partition using Wii Backup Manager. Best Deal: Seagate FreeAgent GO Portable Hard Drive, 500GB 5400RPM - Silver - STAL500501
I've tried using CFG USB Loader and USB Loader GX both and get the same-ish problem with both.
Using NTSC games using IOS222 the game loads fine, I get the white "don't be a rere use the wriststrap" screens. Then it shows a solid black screen and on the bottom left corner theres the word "Loading..." and it just sits here, never progresses.
I've tried this with a few different NTSC games (CoDBlOps, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Monopoly Streets, Tetris Party Deluxe) and they all do the same thing so i'm pretty certain it's not just a corrupted file. The only difference is that with USB Loader GX it keeps popping up a "insert your DKCR disc" and this does not happen on CFG.
With PAL I've tried the games (Mario Kart, Golden Eye, Epic Mickey) using 249 on CFG USB Loader using the options "Force NTSC" and "Video Patch On" (i have no idea what Video Patch does but it wont' work without it on). The game will load up but after a few mins it will just freeze.
I've double checked and reinstalled all the IOS i can think of. Even risked it and used Pimp My Wii and it did full install but failed to download 2 of the IOSs.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It looks to me like you failed at a lot of stuff. Perhaps you would be better off re-softmodding your Wii. Just looking at the start of your post, why would you downgrade to 3.1, that system menu is useless. Some of the games your are trying to play will not even load with IOS222. Then you toss in some out of region games to add to your problems, and then topped it off with pimp my Wii. Trust me, re-softmod your Wii.
I did some huge mistypes... I downgraded from 4.3 to 4.1, not 3.1. Sorry. Do I still need to just start over? If so what is needed? Do i just update system menu and start over or is there some process of removing what I've done?

Oh, great... FAILCorp aka DarkCRAP along with IOS 249 Rev 20. Sorry, no prize for you. I'm not even gonna go there... I love folks who come and ask us to fix THEIR mistakes, lol. And it looks like mauifrog's IOS 90 thrown in for good measure. What the hell did you do, take a shotgun approach sheesh.
Whats the big deal with Dark"crap"? I got it off a guide in the recommended guide forum on this site (http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...mod-guide.html)

I'm just looking for a point in the right direction. What do I need to do? I followed a recommended guide on here that you said was bad (DarkCRAP) and guides from other forums.
To get from what i've got now, to a working softmod, what do i need to do?
Why don't you ask us why we dislike Pimp My Wii? You might as well, pretty much the same answer. Let me mention: you don't borrow "a little of this, a little of that" with regard to softmodding guides and not expect unintended results, do you? IF (I repeat IF) this is NOT DarkFail V1.1, you can use this guide for proper removal. cIOS 249 Rev 17 is the recommended version for about 99% of things out there. Remove the FAIL, follow a wiihacks guide please.
So is there any way to remove Darkfail 1.1? I have 1.1 because it's what the guide i got off this site suggested.
