    Smile Help with 4.2 PAL Softmod

    H i guys,

    Was wondering if anyone could help......I have soft modded a few wii's in the past with 100% success rate but this wii I have at the moment has got me stumped. It is a PAL wii on 4.2, Installed homebrew channel and bootmii as boot 2, ran and installed IOS236 Installer v5 MOD no problems, ran and installed YAWM Multimod Batch no problems, did not install prii loader. Now normally for every other machine I have done I would install neo gamma to play back ups from usb hdd and all would play fine.
    BUT this machine after installing neo gamma takes much longer than usual for the first 2 top lines to appear then when they do you can mount the wbfs hdd and it can see the games, when you select a game neo gamma takes a long time to run through the normal checks they when the game would normally launch it just hangs at a black screen, same for every game on the hdd, I have also tried USB Loader GX but that is exactly the same, can see the games on the wbfs drive but hangs on a black screen on every game.

    What am I missing ?

    Or is this machine just plain screwy ?

    Thanks for any help.

    I'd assume you followed the Softmod ANY Wii guide? If not, follow EVERY step, and try again. Everything. Even reinstall BootMii and the Homebrew Channel.

    Thank you for your reply Binary Wave.

    I have repeated the guide step by step twice doing every step completely and still have the same end result, everything reports it has installed fine and usb loader gx can see all the games on the hdd but can not load none of them just a black screen.

    This is so strange as every other wii I have ever modded has never been a problem using this method, thought it might have been a hdd issue but tested with another hdd and got the exact same result
