So I got my son Tony Hawk Ride for xmas and I got Wii Fit Plus & Board from mom. ANYWAY. I've had a softmodded wii for over a year, happily playing ALL kinds of games old and new.
I put in the game discs for the above two and no go...disc channel says "software requires system update"...I'm afraid to update and brick so I back out and restart wii.
I think I've found a way around this - I backup my disc games above using Usbloader and boot them from uloader. No go.
My fit board won't sync and my skateboard won't calibrate/sync.
Do I need to update my IOS?
I never installed priiloader (embarrassed to admit that I never understood it) or bootmii.
I have wadmanager & hbc.
I THINK I'm working off 4.0 US menu - I can check though...
I'm SO frustrated and my son is a wreck that his game won't work.
Can I just install the IOS53-xxxxx v4633 through wadmanager or do I need to do much more?
There's so much talk about updating through wifi and updating your usbloader programs and cIOS files....I'm swimming in too much info right now.
you should install priiloader
after you installed it hold the reset button to acces it
then go to system menu hacks and enable the hack, block disc updates, then save settings
after all this, everything should work

thanks so much!!
i thought it had something to do with priiloader not being on there, but i couldn't figure out at what point i should install it when i was walking through the dogeggs tute last year.
i'm making my way through the shadowsonic preloader/priiloader tutes now - thanks a million!
I thought you couldn't install priloader on a already hacked wii?
My Black Wii has 4.3u and I can install priloader through the homebrew channel home menu.
I got Defjam for xmas and it's asking for the update.
So is it safe to install the priloader on wii?
Likely the issue you (mis)speak of is Priiloader V0.5; if you didn't have internet already setup and configured for use and you installed that version, it'd brick your Wii.
ok, so i've installed priiloader from shadowsonic's tute.
everything is swell except when i try to access 'system menu hacks' on the priiloader main menu, it gives me a "cannot find hacks.ini file on sd" error.
i've copied the hacks for my menu (4.0U) to a text file and saved as hacks.ini but notepad/win7 is not allowing me to name with quotations ("hack.ini")
i also noticed some of the hack files are being called hacks or hash - does this matter?
i've checked the sd card and on the root of it is my text hacks.ini file.....why wont priiloader see it?
THANKS in advance.

THANK YOU soooo much. You guys are absolutely amazing and responsive. I'm donating again.
For some reason, the file i had (which i downloaded from here: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...eloader-5.html) did not work but the one i just got above did.
