    interesting discovery? 4.1 plays backups in disk channel w/o cIOScorp!

    I have bee reading all over and have not found reference to this- I have a 4.2u that I modded using the 4.2 guide here, and have been using the backup loader to play back-ups on DVDs. Works great. Today I modded a friend's 3.3>4.1 using this gude here http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
    I put in a backup to test it, and was suprised when the game showed up in the disk channel! I DID NOT have to use a backup loader like I have been doing w/ my 4.2u system. I DID NOT install cIOScorp!
    My question- how can I get my 4.2u system to do this w/o cIOScorp? Has anyone else noticed this?

    My 4.1 hacked system allows me to load through the main disk channel too. But not all games load even though the graphics show up.

    Are you sure your friend did not mod the wii prior? The thing of it is, ios249 needs to be used to play backups, this is what the loader does, the disk channel does not unless you have cIOSCORP.

    Run signcheck on this magical wii and post the generated cvs file here when your done.

    Whn i was running 4.0 the backup game would show up in the disc channel after loading it up with the backup launcher sometimes.

    Altho when trying to play it, it came up with the trusty Error message saying that something went wrong and to refer to the wiis manual for troubleshooting

    A loaded a handful of games through the disk channel - but yeah some would error out. Once I set up the external USB - I quit bothering with disks.

    The Wii was not modded before I did it. He has it back, so it may be a few days before I can post the CSV of the IOSes... We tried 3 different back-ups (Conduit, Wii sports, Mariokart) and they all worked. One thing that may be helpful to know- I did the system 4.1 updated BEFORE I installed the cIOS38 r14 installer... Our kids were running all over and it was very distracting- not the best situation, I know. when I got to the step for installing priiloader and there was no ios249 to chose I knew I had missed something and went back and installed cIOS38 r14 in 249, then the patched ios60 and the 4.1 update again. But that means the first time I installed the patched ios60 it was w/ ios36 and not 249...?
