Can play NTSC backups (U and J) but not PAL ones on 4.2U
Hi, I have EXACTLY the same problem. I have a Wii with 4.2U and everything is working on it but PAL games. I follow the softmod guide for 4.2 and all went through ok... I could get all patched IOS installed, bootmii (as IOS), Trucha bug restored, Waninkoko (249 and 250 rev17) cIOS installed, Hermes cIOS installed (202, 222, 223), USB Loader GX and all works...
However WHATEVER PAL disc I try to play it just refuses it saying It can't read the disc... see wii operations manual... bla bla bla... And I can play MANY other backups if they are NTSC (U or J, both are working) and through USB Loader GX I can play all PAL games...
To summarize, I'm on 4.2U, cIOS 249 rev17, Neogamma r7 (and tried r8 b15 as well)...
*** Any chance to get this fixed installing ciosCorp 3.6?
PLEASE... Could someone sheed some light on this???

You need to make sure you have a blank line at the end. This can cause the error you're experiencing.

neogamma loads to black screen
I was an idiot apparently an downloaded and installed an app called mplayer. Up to that point I have had my 4.2 softmodded running all games no problems using neogamma or usbloader. Now I cannot get neogamma to load anything. So I tried downgrading and reinstalling the softmod and I am getting nowhere. Any suggestions?

Step 5 .... No way without internet???
I have no internet connection with Wii.
OK. I managed all steps up to 4 (included) using wad files form SD.
I sucessfuy evaded "blackscreens" by resetting Wii after each substep.
But in step 5a, when I trie to instal ISO53, it said just "You have to have internet connection, sorry!" or something like that.
So, does this mean that I should forget about softmoding my Wii until I get internet wireles router (might be long time becouse of very tight budget)?

Hello. I went through all the steps and got the softmod working. Now I am trying to get to the point when I boot the Wii it goes to the System Menu so I can load Neogamma or USB Loader GX from one of the channels. Currently it boots to BootMii first. I then have to get out my GC controller and boot into the System Menu from there. I tried to set Autoboot in the priiloader settings to "System Menu" but it still goes to BootMii first. Can I bypass BootMii some how and go straight to the System Menu? Thanks in advance.

Quick question. On that wiki page it lists system menu 4.2 for USA, EUR, JAP and KOR. I'm in Australia (PAL) so which hacks.ini do i require?

Use the European hacks.ini if your wii is PAL.
