    help with wii softmod

    recently I've been trying to modify my wii so that I can play back up games on it through disc, but I can't seem to get it to work right. I've been trying to install backup managerv.3 cIOS I'm pretty much thinking of starting all over again though. I used bannerbomb hack do I need to revert to original wii settings? if so how do I do that? and what hack should I use?

    If you have a newer wii it is not going to play copied discs no matter what. USB loading is far superior anyhow,If you would like to properly mod your wii you need to follow the softmod any wii guide linked in my signature. No need to delete anything, just let the guide overwrite whatever you may already have there.

    I wouldn't recommend using discs for backs up either way, it wears out your laser. My laser died within year of first using copied discs for back ups. Get yourself a USB Hard Drive it's much simpler to use and cheaper in the longer run.

    my serial number starts with LU57, it's starting to look like I will use a external. do you need to patch the iso somehow to play it from usb though too?
    back to my other question though is it advised to keep my firmware at 3.4,

    4.1 is the preferred system menu. Of you follow the guide I told you to it will leave you on4.1.

    No patching necessary for usb loading. Look at FAQ link in my Sig, it will answer a lot of your questions.

    Sent with WiiHacks app, that should explain any typos 8-p

    I got an error message when extracting the CIOS PACK will this complicate anything?

    get an error with the checksum...

    are these checksum errors going to be a problem, because I've already redownloaded the files and it gave me even worse results...

    as it turns out 3 is the magic number of downloads I needed to do to get a System Menu-NUS-4.1u-v54449.wad file that worked

    Enough with the multi posting and bumping, there is an edit button if you need to add info to your post.

    Are you extracting the files directly to the sd card befor you run the checksum? Perhaps you should go to the thread for the guide and look at the last few posts....??? That is where your questions should be asked anyhow.

    alright so all the modding is done and the usb loaders work, but I have a problem when playing games, I tried it on resident evil umbrella chronicles and darkside chronicles and it seems that when I view cut scenes the games freezes. Could this be related to the drive I'm using or could it be from the files themselves being corrupted?
    EDIT* well never mind about that it's definetaly the files somehow I lost nearly half a gig of REUC....
