    Procedures have changed-DO NOT DOWNGRADE your Wii-it will brick. Follow this softmod tutorial. read it several times very closely. Good luck on a successful softmod.

    No you wont be able to do that. You would have to install the optional cIOScorp but it is not highly recommended.

    Install the new cIOScorp 3.4 for DVDR loading through Disc Channel - (works on all wiis) - Download - make sure you read the readme!

    It is at the bottom at the tutorial that gen3sf gave you.

    If you really have to play game backups through the disk channel, instead of using a loader, then your best option is cIOSCORP 3.4. Make sure you read the Readme file and background information. This is a very dangerous program to install because it replaces ALL the core IOS's of the Wii. You may also have problems with Homebrew Channel and HB apps. Certain preloader hacks have to be disabled. Nevertheless, it does allow for backup game discs to be played without NeoGamma.

    If you want to do this, follow the softmod tutorial first because hackmii has problems being installed after cIOSCORP has been installed. Make your backup NAND copy first. A link to cIOSCORP is provided in the optional section of the softmod tutorial.

    I disagree. If you really want to play games through disc channel then buy a modchip.

    If you can't install bootmii/boot2 don't go anywhere near cIOSCORP unless you want your Wii to stop working at some time.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Dang, I meant to put the modchip as a comment and then forgot because I so focused on adding precautions and to read up so the user is aware of what the choice entails. Thanks for the catch. So, do we only have 1 active cIOSCORP fan in membership-the fellow that I think I see leading folks thru wads and loadmii..ummm techm8te or technom8e?

    Thanks, messie. I have boot2 protection; don't remember it giving me a license to
    deviate off the tested and supported procedures used by you mods and staff.

    Still. Wiis are funny things, I just did my sister's 4.0U Wii. I cloned my WD 1TB HDD to an identical one ahead of time, tested it on my console....bottomline-while my sister's softmod went fine (I at least can read and follow directions) not all the out-of-region games played despite identical settings for the preloader and USB Loader GX. Can't figure it out, she's willing to play with the settings and there are tons more games that do play. Just puzzling to me. maybe just the difference between my old Wii (updated to 3.2U) and her newer one (left her at 4.0U).
