Thread: "New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii" Wad reset problem - 4.1u modded Wii

    "New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii" Wad reset problem - 4.1u modded Wii

    This problem relates to the thread: ""New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii"

    After carefully following each procedure on the guide, my Wii is now fully modded with 4.1u firmware (old white Wii). Every application on my homebrew launcher works great including game backup clients, however there's one problem that still persists:

    No matter what wad manager or SD card I use, every time I install a wad using IOS 222, the wad/app just instantly restarts and brings me back to the main Wii menu. There are a few exceptions that do run, but most wads do not.

    Has anyone else heard of this problem? Thank you very much for your time.

    On a side note, I would very much like to get a Netflix client running quickly. For some reason Netflix iso's with Usb Loaders don't work anymore.

    Try using 249 (default) to install wads.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Mrkazador. Unfortunately I tried 249 also and it doesn't work.

    Pob3008, I can't because the Wii shop channel requires an update and I heard from the guide that I listed that updating it can cause my Wii to brick.

    Has anyone heard of this reoccurring problem with wads not running and just bringing me back to the Wii menu?

    Thank you.

    Thank you, Peire. I will try that. I like your avatar btw C8

    If you or anyone also knows a guide I can follow to help fix my wad problem, there are still many free wads I would like to install that I would not find on the Wii shop channel.

    If 249 does not work for installing wads there may be a problem. Do you get an error message when trying to install the wad? If so, check out this thread.

    Post a system check

    No, I don't get any error message; the wad seems to install correctly and I see a valid startup icon on the Wii menu (with music and everything) but when I click start, it just sends me back to the main menu.

    Thank you for the links however. I will check them out and reply if I find a solution.

    What wad are you trying to install? Maybe its a forwarder and you don't have the app in the correct directory sending you back to the menu.

    One example of many, is the Netflix wad which should be free on the Wii Shop Channel.
