I'm running a softmodded wii via mauifrog's 4.3 virgin guide, and am downgraded to 4.1. It works great for every game I tried, except for supersmash brawl. Everything about the game works perfectly, until I try to choose a stage (map). At this point, the game freezes and makes a very very loud ERRRRR (think fire alarm). This problem can be circumvented though by setting the stage choice to random, so that the stage screen never appears. If this is done the game plays fine. But I can never choose a stage.
My first thought was that it was a poor burn to the disk, so I burned a new one. When that didn't work, I assumed it was a bad download, so I download a different version. Exact same problem. Then I put all my games on an external and loaded them all via USB (first neogama, but now GX). They all worked fine except for Super Smash, which still locked up on the exact same spot.
I looked over the other posts and couldn't find anything similar, so any help would be much appreciated. Let me know if you need any more information.
Note: I did NOT use SSBB to install homebrew. I used indiana jones. I have also installed cIOS38 Rev 17.
I do not know exactly wich one you should install or if it's even an IOS issue. So far there is no official explanation of the situation. As soon i know how or see it posted i will let you know. Hopefully someone with more knowledge might help you
The ios that the game uses is ios 36.
Being on 4.3 you should have the latest versions anyway.
I have seen people saying to use ios 222 to load the game in usb loader gx.
First I'm a noob but have been searching this site and have gained a wealth of knowledge in the process.
yeah I'm having the same problem. followed mauifrog's guide and tried with hermes ios 222/223. Also with rev17, but no luck yet. Freezes in the same spot with the retail dvd as well.
I remember I read somewhere here a guy saying he fixed a problem with this game using cIos38 rev13b. The problem this guy had was that when he finished the first battle on adventure mode (Mario vs Kirby) the game crashed. I'm having the same problem but haven't had a chance to test Rev13b besides I'm trying to find an alternate solution to avoid downgrading from Rev 17 to Rev 13b. Maybe the stage selection problem could be solved doing the same thing
Also I think that guy was on Sysmenu 4.2 ... will look for that post.
Here's the post Help with SSBB

This happened to me until I just simply removed my SD card from my wii, and SSBB no longer froze at the stage selection screen!
