    Black screen on American Idol

    OK - so I modded my, Wii put USB Loader gx on it, got a 1TB drive, put cios38 rev14 on, everything works fine.
    My brother-in-law saw it and got me to do his, followed the same procedure and his one gets a black screen on American Idol 1 and 2
    Does anybody know what ios it uses?
    Thanks in advance for any help and from what I have seen on this site so far I feel I should apologise to messie in advance

    Hmm... i think you must find what ios this game runs on and find it and install it. (stay away from ios50 and ios60 tho)

    also must be a crappy game, so play one of the more interesting ones

    Some people may notice getting a black screen when trying to run certain games. The reason this happens is because the game is trying to load an IOS not available on your console. To Solve the problem you will need to install the IOS via Wad Manager.


    Things Needed
    IOS Patcher
    WiiScrubber v1.4
    1x SD Card
    WAD Manager or DOP-IOS
    A Wii ISO (One that doesn't have its update partition removed)


    Both IOS Patcher and Wii Scrubber can be downloaded [URL=http://www.mediafire.com/?gjtikywmhjn]here[URL]

    Before you start unzip the downloaded files


    STEP 1 - Find Out What IOS A Game Needs

    Drag the .iso file onto IOSPatcher. A screen telling you what IOS the game needs should come up. Remember it or Write It Down.

    Step 2 - Extract the Required IOS

    Next Run WiiScrubber.exe

    WiiScrubber should open. Press Load ISO.

    Browse for and open the same .iso that was dragged onto IOSPatcher

    Next Expand the update partition. This is the Partiton that says Partition: 0 - Update.

    Next expand the part that's called _sys



    http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/2416/39101964.jpg



    Next Scroll down until you find the same IOS number that was in IOSPatcher in this case, its IOS55. Right click the IOS file and select Extract. Save this into the WAD folder on the root of your sd card.

    STEP 3 - Installing the IOS

    1)With your sd card inside your wii, load homebrew channel then load Wad Manager. I'd recommend using WAD manager v1.4 or v1.5

    2)If you're asked to select an IOS for install select IOS249 then install the .wad file you got from WiiScrubber.

    The Game should now run fine.

    Thanks messie
    It's chipped with a drivekey so disc is always an option but defeats the purpose of having the loader. We have tried it with 222 and 223
    We will keep trying and report back
    It is a bit older than my Wii, don't know if that would make a difference
