    any ideas??
    Yes, you cannot load the backups from the disc channel. Usually a user encounters a specific error # when loading from NeoGamma. Does this particular Wii give an error #? Usually it can be traced to either an unmodifiable D3-2 drive or an improper cIOS install. This Wii does get NeoGamma fully loaded, right --- it'd say IOS 249 (Rev 17) along the bottom. Not a black screen just loading it up, right? How old is the Wii and what version/region is it?

    Red face Thanks!

    I just went through the guide and got my Wii working with the latest games. I have not tried installing USB loader GX yet but I dont' intend to. i'm pretty happy being able to load DVD-Rs through the disc channel.
    I had a 3.3U launch console that was already soft modded to play burned games and run emulators with bootmii2 already installed. I followed the guide from 2a but I couldn't get pass 5b because my wii would go to a blank screen after loading the homebrew channel. I had to erase the homebrew channel from the settings menu and go back to step 1c and install the homebrew channel again. I just needed a different version of homebrew channel and now I got all the updates from this tutorial. Thanks so much Dogeggs!

    You may or may not be missing some IOS. The updater to 4.0 downloads some IOS as well. Which ones, I do not know. If you go to load a game and it immediately black screens, this may be the reason. If you run into this phenomena, consult this thread to see what IOS the given title may need -- odds are you don't have that particular IOS installed.

    That is correct, a frozen black screen often means an IOS needed by the game to load is not installed or requires an updated version. Read Posts #1 and 2 of this link HERE.

    If you need help using NUS Downloader to download your IOSes, read this guide HERE.

Then continue on with Priiloader install, etc...

    Edit: you will have to extract the System Menu via WinRar first prior to copying it over into your /wad folder...

    Hey,
    Thanks for that. Will give it a go but also neogamma is doing the same thing.

    Hi, I softmodded my wii a long time ago and never modded a lot of the files.

    More specifically

    IOS50-64-v4889
    IOS53-64-v5149
    IOS55-64-v5149

    My cIOS is an older version, and I have not got bootmii or priiloader (I would like them both).

    I can run all games and install wads fine (have sports resort and new mario working fine).

    Do I run the update on these files? Do I update the original files I did as well? Or Do I just follow this guide and basically re-softmod the wii again?

    Or the last option, 'if it aint broke don't fix'

    Thanks, Tim
