Please help me troubleshoot my softmodded Wii [with pics]
I recently bought myself a Wii (early December), and took it home with me (by the way, I live in Vancouver, Canada). I was a happy guy. So I did all the basic stuff...did all the updates and such. My firmware was upgraded to 3.4U. I was planning to get my Wii modded with a chip, but after some research, I found out I could softmod my Wii.
So after I unwrapped Kung Fu Panda for Wii as one of my Christmas presents, I decided to return it for Zelda: Twilight Princess instead, to apply the Twilight hack and install the Homebrew channel.
What I am trying to do is play burnt Wii games (from Torrent sites) on my Wii without modding my Wii, and through Homebrew. I heard that it is possible.
I got home, and successfully installed the Homebrew channel (version 0.1 beta 2 for System Menu 3.4 via HackMii.com) using saveslot number #2 (TwilightHack2). The SD card I used was PNY Technologies 1GB.
I downloaded a few applications off the Internet, and I ended up with this:
For the following trials I used Wii Music from this torrent, burnt on a Verbatim DVD-R at 4x speed with ImgBurn, as recommended by one guide on this forum.
1. Wad Manager V1.1
I tried this with this torrent, but my Wii returned an error instead.
2. DVDx V1
I tried installing this, but failed also. It said I needed to do an advanced install, choosing IOS249, but it wasn't available at all.
3. Backup Loader V1.2
Failed to open game.
4. Wii Dumper V1.2
Whenever I load it, the screen goes black and the Homebrew channel restarts.
6. Backup Launcher 0.3 Gamma
Brings me to a couple of errors once I try to play Wii Music (I even tried configuring the settings, and got the same errors):
I heard that this Backup Loader was supposed to create a new channel on the System Menu, but I couldn't get it to do anything. My Wii Music disc wasn't loaded up, and I couldn't get a new channel.
7. cIOS Installer 0.3 Gamma
This downloaded the files smoothly without problems.
8. GameCube Linux
Haven't tried--not of my interest at the moment.
9. Gecko OS 1.07
Fail to launch the game.
10. Region Free
Not a valid Wii application error.
Checked and working properly
12. Tetris Wii
Not a valid Wii application error.
Not of my interest.
So, any help on running my game?
By the way, my SD card on my Windows looks like this:
I'm a tad bit frustrated right now. Really wanting to play some games.
Help would be oh so much appreciated!
wad manager requires 3.2 or edited 3.4 *just get 3.2*
same as above if i recall
it rarly works =P
you got to have a game in, make sure you do befor trying, or maybe its corrupted
if it has a edit, like scrubbed or brick blocked it wont run *meaning if u didnt download a 4.3 gig file it wont work (just because that game is rarly uploaded in full)*
you need to install the wad =P
it really is useless on the wii, for the most part
you need a chip to use that program or a real game
must be a .Dol, not elf
same as above
then dont mention it -.-
hehe i like how you found out about this, but it ended there...
everything needed, seriously
So I need WAD Manager version 3.2, is it?
I downloaded it, and it expanded to a 4.3GB file.
Oh, okay sorry for being such a noob. :P
And when you say it rarely works, you mean the WAD manager or running the games?
to the original poster ... start over.
Use the link in my signature. It has all of the files you need also.

Hello, I managed to get the Gamma Backup Launcher Channel installed...THANK YOU!
And I got The Opera Internet Channel Installed.
But...I tried running Wii Music, but it ran in black and white. Any way to fix this? Thanks!
What regoin is wii music that your trying to play?
Also gamma loader has some options available to it, I think you hold 1 while loading and it brings up a menu.
try burning on a Quality disc(verbatim) at 2X speed.
