    Can't get Savegame Manager to work?

    Hi,

    I want to copy my Monster Hunter Tri save data to transfer to a different Wii, but really having problems with 1. understanding all the Homebrew stuff 2. getting it to work!

    Last week I used Letterbomb (Wii uses v. 4.3E) to install the Homebrew Channel, had Savegame Manager ready on the SD card, the Homebrew Channel loaded fine, but when selecting the Savegame Manager app I got a black screen and had to reset the Wii...
    I have tried to find out what the problem is or how to fix it, but I find different/conflicting advice online and honestly a lot of really technical complicated info that I can't get my head around...

    So far I have found advice suggesting the following options:

    1. Try Savegame Manager GX instead
    2. Rename the boot.dol file of the app to boot.elf
    3. Try older version of app r095
    4. Something to do with a cIOS..?

    I don't own the Wii I want to copy the save file from, so I have to be really careful not to wreck it -.-

    Regarding the cIOS, I read it needs 249, but after looking online I have found advice saying IOS236 needs installing first, or that d2x (??!) is now used instead, and struggling to find a download link for 'Waninkoko cIOS 249'?

    Can somebody please point me in the right direction?? All I want is a copy of my save file.

    Thanks!

    You should post a syscheck and if you used the "softmod any wii" guide you should have everything you need. If you have Priiloader installed there's an option in it so you can copy any game save.

    Sorry I don't know what you mean by 'post a syscheck'.

    I don't know which guide to follow, they are all different.

    Priiloader - seems high-risk? It makes permanent modifications?? Like I mentioned, this isn't my console and the idea is to remove any Homebrew/modifications/etc. once I have used them to make a copy of the save file. I need to make sure the Wii is back to 'normal' and isn't going to get bricked.

    You do realize that you will have to mod your Wii as well to use this?

    OK, I will try to make this as simple as possible for you. The Wii must be connected to the internet for this to work.
    1. Download the IOS236 installer from HERE and extract it directly to the APPS folder on your sd card.
    2. Download Wiimod from HERE and extract it directly to the APPS folder on your sd card.
    3. Download d2x v7 from HERE and extract it directly to the WAD folder on your sd card.
    4. Launch the IOS236 installer, follow the instructions, and install IOS236. Return to the HBC.
    5. Launch WiiMod, select to load another IOS and load 236.
    6. In Wiimod select Wad manager, then install cIOS249.

    Then try to run your savegame manager again.

    Yes... I'll cross that bridge later.

    How likely is the above to work/solve the problem?
    Is this route the easiest, safest way to get my save file?
    Can all of this be undone, uninstalled? Will there be permanent alterations to the Wii, and any that may cause future problems (bricking!) ?

    Thanks for the help.

    It will more than likely work. I dont know why savegame manager gx didnt work, because IOS58 is installed along side the 4.3 update. (savegame manager gx requires ios58 or cios249 to work) The above instructions will install Cios249-d2xv7 final.

    Are you certain you used the latest version of savegame manager gx from HERE?

    And yes this can all be undone. The risk of bricking from this is virtually zero, as long as you follow the instructions. None of the Wii's original software is even messed with by doing this. You are just adding a few things.

    It wasn't Savegame Manager GX, it was just Savegame Manager, from Savegame Manager - WiiBrew

    If I try Savegame Manager GX do I still need to do the above steps??

    It says it makes permanent changes to the flash memory and to use with caution, why?

    Try with GX first without doing the above steps. If still no luck do the above steps.

    The permanent changes would be adding save files to your nand (flash memory). Every time you make a save file you are doing this anyways. As with any tool like this, basically what it is saying is just dont go willy nilly deleting and changing stuff. Use it for what it was meant for, and know what you are doing prior to doing it.

    Erm, how do I do that?

    Clicking the link, and then 'download' on the right of the page then brings up a list of things that don't seem to be what I'm looking for..?

    Just done it with Savegame Manager GX! Worked perfectly! Thanks!

    One last thing... I removed the SD card and deleted the Homebrew channel, but is the Wii 'safe'??
