I Can't Install Wiiware Games Anymore!
I'm having trouble installing wiiware games now, last time I install a wiiware game was in march 2010 and it was "Art Of Balance" when it first came out for nstc... Will I try installing couple of games today like "Zombie Panic in Wonderland" "Cave Story" both is nstc and it wouldn't install, it would move from like #5,#6,#7 then it would freeze at #7 and I let it sit there for 5 mins to make sure it was still installing because it doesn't take that long to install a wiiware game, only couple of mins max...
So I'm thinking maybe it was something up with the new wiiware games so I try to install "Defend Your Castle" the very first wiiware game I had tho HBC when HBC was first hack for the wii and it does the same thing as the other two wiiware games... I did install couple of VC games release by Nintendo tho the HBC and they went fine, I just can't get wiiware games to install why is that? I never had a problem until now, can anyone help me out on this problem? thanks in advance and I'm on 4.2u ...

Download Trucha Bug Restorer and extract it to the root of your SD Card.
Open the Homebrew Channel and start Trucha Bug Restorer.
When in Trucha Bug Restorer, press B for 'No iOS reload.' Read what the autors want to say to you and press 1. Go to 'iO36 menu' and press A.
Copy these settings:
Install iOS to slot: 236
Patch hash check (trucha): YES
Patch ES_Identify: YES
Patch nand permissions: YES
Patch version check: YES
Go to 'Install patched iOS36' and press A.
Set it to: <Load iOS from sd card> and press A.
Press A to start installing.
Press any button to exit Trucha Bug Restorer after the installation.
Open WAD Manager and load 'iOS236.' Go to your WAD folder and install the WiiWare game(s) you want.

wiiwares occupy memory of ur Wii. check the free blocks b4 installations.
If you don't have enough free space left, I believe it just bricks your Wii. But you can check your free blocks, anyway.

Oh, now I get it. I readed that you must have XXX blocks free to install another System Menu/Firmware, because if there isn't enough space left during the process, you have a corrupted System Menu.

Isn't there a way to store WiiWare on your SD or HDD if it has a FAT32 partition? If I"m not mistaken, the Wii comes with an incredible small amount of memory. It would be incredibly usefull to store the WAD data somewhere else and use forwarders or something much smaller instead.
Loading WiiWare and Virtual Console games from a SD card is possible by default if you have firmware 4.0 or above.

Thanks, thebandicoot, I did what u said and it works fine, I got Zomine Panice In Wonderland and cave story to work, but I also try installing jett rocket, diner dash and defend your castle and it would just freeze at the # I do have ios 53,55 and 56 running is it that my ios is out of date? or it's something else? if my ios is out of date or I'm missing ios how can I do a system check to see what ios I'm missing?

Maybe you must update your ciOS.

Any scan is not needed, since it only depends on the iOS currently being reloaded in WAD Manager, and if these are all up-to-date, this shouldn't be your problem.
