Okay I am back. I totally restored my brothers wii with a backup nand and reloaded everything back on his wii. I have added back triiforce and just a black screen. Not sure what is going on . I did the tutorial on page 6
4.1 u ...
any ideas anyone ?
So if I want to run off of USB does it matter if my FAT32 partition is the second partition on the drive?
I think i fixed my issue and will post it when i finish testing ..but how do you exit a game if you are playing. I wanted to stop playing mario bro. I went home on the wii remote and then reset. ..went to mario home screen where it starts the game. ..then home again and wii menu and it just black screen the wii ? Is there an easy way out or just rest the wii when in middle of game play ? This is not at the triiforce homepage ...just in middle of games or when you are at the game you pick , starting menu to pick players
okay i test with all 6 of the games i was having trouble with . They now work. I had to run truncha again.
IOS 15 - IOS 36 yes to all 3 options and IOS 36 slot 36
then i did truncha bug again and IOS 36 and restore IOS 15.
Then i installed IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad which i do not think i need cause i am on 4.1u firmware but did anyways.
SHUT DOWN WII and then turn back on. Then test.
This now always me to play the games fine and pick them and the wii remote no longer loses sync. Not sure if you need to do all above but this worked for me.
I still would love to know how to exit a game you are already playing.
hope this helps someone else having the same issue.

For those people having trouble after doing the 3.1 to 4.1 hacking guide, I would try mmoore5553's suggestion posted above.
4.2U || BootMii beta 4 (boot2) || DVDx v2 || HBC 1.0.8 || cIOS 38 r17 || WiiFlow R254-249 Carbonik || Triiforce MRC SS || MPlayer CE 0.76 || WiiRadio 0.4

For everyone having trouble with the wads2nand method. Just use the guide from page 6. Dump your real nand with bootmii (hopefully a clean nand or clean it out in showmiiwads 1.2 afterwards) and use the program included in page 6 after dumping your nand.
Then have showmii wads directed to the nand folder on your pc or if you a fat32 partitioned hard drive, the root of your hard drive (that being the hard drive letter) and install your wads from showmii wads 1.2 directly to your hard drive (Showmiiwads 1.2 will let you specify where the nand dump path is on your pc hard drive or usb hdd drive).
Which should have the ticket folder, title folder, tmp, sys, meta, shared 1 and 2 folders after moving all the folders from the nand folder on your pc to usb hdd drive. Only problem games i have had so far are Lost Winds and Space Invaders Get Even. All VC Games work flawlessly. All genuine ntsc ones. Triforce is still a work in progress.
For triforce images, create a folder on your sd card's root, name it triforce_mrc and make sure all the games are named after the game title id (four digital number) you can see these in showmiiwad 1.2. It has to be an sd card. For some reason triforce is not able to read images off of an usb drive yet. I'm pretty sure that will be worked out in the near future (I care more about issues with games being worked out first though).
@wiiskeet: If you want any wii homebrew applications to recognize your hard drive, make sure your fat32 partition is primary active on your usb hdd drive. When you create your partition you'll be able to specify which partition is primary and active. So to answer your question no.
It just needs to be active (technically i guess it does make it the first partition). You can have 1 fat32 partition, 1 fat partition and two ntfs partitions all partitioned from the same drive (which would make up 4 partitions) but the fat32 one needs to be active. Obviously you don't need all those partitions, just giving out examples. Best thing to do is make one fat32 partition (for homebrew apps) and 1 ntfs partition formatted to wbfs (for your wii games).
AGAIN. You can have up to four primary partitions, but only one of them can be active at one time (Make sure it's the fat32 one if you plan on using a usb hdd drive for homebrew apps, games, triforce, and other emulators and media applications like Geebox to watch movies, view jpegs and listen to music from your hard drive on your wii homebrew channel). Also I would use a program like Partition Wizard Home Edition or Easus Partition Master Home Edition to create hdd partitions (Both free, use google for more info and latest stable versions).
I use ncWBFSTools (best WBFS manager out there imo). Also I use WBFS Manager 3.01, usually for renaming my game names and seeing what regions my wii games are from. Wii backup manager is another great one but has a flaw with ciso to iso conversions, which is why I use ncWBFTools (Plus it has a nice graphical interface). All these wbfs managers can format your ntfs partiton to wbfs for your wii games. Make sure to put the exact amount of gigbytes you want your ntfs primary partition (not active) to have for wbfs (As you can't go back afterwards and change it without formatting your wbfs partition, losing all your wii games in the process).
I have a d2-3 wii with system menu 4.1u, cios rev 14, usb loaders wiiflow, geckos, config usbloader, uloader, usb loader gx, neogamma rev 7 and rev 8b and triforce_mrc v7 with forwarder (make sure you have the correct fowarder or it will run the original triforce without gui).
USB HDD, Western Digital My Book 1TB, WBFS partition is 799GB and fat32 Partition 99.9 GB (Over 250 games so far and counting)
SD Card, Nintendo Wii San Disk 2GB.
Update: I would highly recommend that anyone who is starting out with triforce to backup and dump their nand from bootmii and not from the simple fs dumper program and also use showmiiwad 1.2 and not wad2nand. Use the steps from page 6 of this thread and also read this very post for some additional tips that may help you further with triforce (such a great program).

After much reading, i found out that the only way to get images in triiforce_mrc,when using USB, is to load them via SD card (sd:\triiforce_mrc)...Anyone know if there is a way around that yet? I tried to just transfer it to mu USB HDD...but it dont work
