    modded wii v3.3u- can't play wii fit plus

    i have a modded wii v3.3u
    i have installed homebrew channel with the twilight princess cd.
    i just bought an original wii fit plus but the game asked me to update system.
    from what i read, it says that updating system can cause the console to crash.
    i also try to some other game such as let's tap and some game that were released on 2009. all of them require me to update system.
    what should i do?

    Use a backup loader,


    If you do that and it wont play, you are missing some ios'

    use a wad manager/installer to install the missing ios' and play with backup loader, then it wont ask to update XD

    Its most probably because you are not putting them in the right folders on the card.

    if your sd card was letter "e:" then here are some examples of the structure

    e:\wads\
    wads go in here

    e:\apps\appname\boot.dol
    Where "appname" is the name of the app

    Checking IOSes being Uninstalled and other problems.

    Hi I am new to the Wii Hacks community and have a couple of quick questions...I believe I have made to simple mistakes with my newly purchased Wii in an attempt to soft mod. I followed the guides on this site to begin softmodding.

    My first mistake was updating from version 4.1 to 4.2 right before I started. After reading the guide for 4.2's I decided to take a stab at it.

    I got through the entire process but not without some errors. Mostly during the NUS downloading section of the guide. At one point too I got a black screen with the entire TV being full of white letter coded errors. I made the second mistake of removing stubbed IOSs , possible more than 10 of them being under IOS200 (I was in a rush and extremely excited with the process and frustrated when I wasn’t sure what to do and started toying around with the options).


    I am wondering if this is the as the regular IOSs and will cause my Wii a slow and painful death (as I learned is clearly stated in the more fleshed out guide and boldly found throughout the site)? I was also wondering if you can check which or how many IOSs have been removed or uninstalled? (Is there a difference?)



    Other than these 2 mistakes my Wii has not "bricked" (yet). Maybe it is just a matter of time. I have installed everything in the guide including Bootmii, WAD Manadger, NeoGamma, USB LOADER, HACKMII and Priiloader along with some others mentioned in the guide...Unfortunately my only problem with Priiloader is I seem unable to load any hacks from the hacksmenu as I get an error saying hack.ini file not found on my SD card. I copied all the text of the preloader/hacks from the Wiibrew site into a text document, and then changed the extension to .ini. Still not recognized on the startup of my Wii (Priiloader menu).

    I have also managed to play store bought disks using NeoGamma and backups (including Wii Sports Resort using USBLoader) with a 16GB Kingston USB flash drive and WBFS Manager (something software) on my PC with Windows XP. Unfortunately when I try to run backup games (tried Madworld and others) on disk using NeoGamma I get the common 1053 Error which I believe has something to do with the newer Wii console and the D3-2 chip issue.

    Well so far everything seems to be running smoothly although I fear the slow and painful death mentioned before from the IOSs issue. I am still within my 30 day return/exchange on the console so I appreciate a reply as soon as possible. I am fully satisfied with the USBLOADER method and all the work everyone here has put into the guides, faqs and tutorials thoroughly written and put together.

    Last thing I wanted to mention was that I did save a fully Perfect NAND (no bad sectors or blocks) backup on my PC hardrive before I started my modding adventure, that I am keen to reload if anything seems wrong with my system.

    Please let me know if you think my Wii will survive in the long run, down the road. Thanks again for all you time and continued efforts, you guys all do an amazing job!

    Cheers,

    Hiner69er
