Sad to report that my wii froze at the first step, when I try to load the SD card, it just freezes, nothing happens.
Anyone can help?
the above post....
yeah make sure its formatted to FAT or FAT16... I had the same issue and then i made sure to format and everything worked...once you do that and nothing is in there read the 1st post of this thread very very good...and if your trying to get usb loader gx just google it.. and once you get that make sure you put it in your wad manger..Thats some what of away just read around but the 1st post of this thread was very damn good..
this is my first post. just found out about hacking the softmod. I always thought i need a mod chip to do it but then i read this thread and everything worked perfectly. just take your time, read ahead and enjoy playing!! thanks a lot.
I modded Wii version 4.2U using this guide and am able to load games off usb okay. But, when i want to load burned dvd-r's it doesnt play. Also, i am not able to play wii sports which came with it. it says it needs to update the wii before it can play. what is the solution?
Is it still possible to softmod a wii that has been updated to firmware 4.2 or will a softmod just brick the machine?
I'm stuck on step 2b. Wii 4.2u, no hardware mods, LU51xxx.
Right after pressing A in step 2b my wii hangs (I've waited 20+ min), displaying:
I assume that at this point I should be able to select where I want the files from (SD, NUS, etc.). Any ideas?Code:Install patched IOS36 Install IOS to slot: 36 Patch hash check (trucha): yes Patch ES_identify: yes Patch nand permissions: yes Getting IOS36 revision 3351...
Step 2 - Restoring The Bug Into IOS36
a) Load and Homebrew Channel and run DOP-IOS MOD, on the IOS Selection Screen, press down on the d-pad then A on the wiimote. You should now be in the trucha bug restorer portion of DOP-IOS MOD. Load IOS36 and select Downgrade IOS15. Each time it asks, select 'Download From NUS'
Make sure you get no errors. If Loading IOS36 doesn't work for this step, press B for no IOS reload when asked to load IOS.
b) Run DOP-IOS MOD again, on the IOS Selection Screen, press down on the d-pad and press A. Load IOS15 and choose IOS36 Menu. Make sure to install the patched IOS36 with all these patches selected:
Install IOS to slot (36)
Hash Check (trucha) Yes
NAND Permissions Yes
Then Press A on Install Patched IOS36. !!!I'm stuck right here!!! Again, everytime it asks, choose 'Download from NUS'
If I restart the system and continue to step 2c+ I get the following error when trying to delete IOS222 (and the other 3) in step 3
Code:- Deleting ticket file /ticket/00000001/000000de/tik... Ticket delete failed (No ticket)? -102 - Deleting title file /title/00000001/000000de... Error! ISFS_Delete(ret = -102) Press any key...

I am also stuck right here. I get to the exact same step as the above poster. When I tell it to download from NUS, it fails to initialize the network, returning code -116. This is odd, because the previous download from NUS worked flawlessly, only minutes prior. Any input would be appreciated.
pretty nice site u got here... lol.
the tutorial seems very well thought and explained. I'd like to try to softmod my wii to play games from a USB HDD. However I have one doubt. will my virtual console games and wiiware games still be playable after a succesful modification? Also, I suppose that when Nintendo releases a FW above 4.2, I won't be able to buy more games from the wii shop channel without updating to the newest FW (which I assume can brick my console) am I correct?
and a 3rd question would be, will this softmod method allow me to play/rip NTSC-J games on my ntsc-U wii?
Thanks for any insight regarding the above issues.
