    Completed softmod, now looking for advice on whether it's been propely configured.

    I do have a screwed up installation story, and was hoping some pro-modder can look over my syscheck and give any advice, should you spot something wrong.

    So far my modded wii seems to work fine, though I do get issues with certain homebrew apps trying to recognize my USB drive.

    I originally took a virgin wii with a system menu of 3.x and did a full factory update to 4.3. So stupid , I know, but thanks to mauifrog's http://www.wiihacks.com/homebrew/609...d-any-wii.html guide, I was successfully able to mod it with no problems.

    Then I downgraded to 3.x and update to 4.1. Why? I don't know, just thought I'd get better compatibility. Anyhow, that process went fine using other guides on this forum, and I'm currently on System menu 4.1.

    Now, things seem to still be working fine, but I'm not sure if all is properly configured. So I'm posting my syscheck in hopes of some advice on whether or not all looks good.

    The syscheck utility freezes on me, so my post is partly syscheck and dop-mii.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Thanks for the reply. I've been using a couple of differnt USB drives, 1.5TB WD MyBook Essential, 500GB WD My Book.

    I always partition my drives with 2 partitions. 1st partition NTFS then formatted with WBFS, 2nd partition 10GB FAT32 marked as active.

    USBLoaderGX works great as a USB loader. I had problems with the My Elements drive whereby USBLoaderGX would not allow modifying the custom paths, yet on the 500GB drive it did allow it.

    Yet with both drives, Wii64 emulator simply will not recognize the USB drives.

    other than updating ur cios i wouldnt know
    dont know if this helps you, but i solved all those problems by only using 1 partition (FAT)
    i can play games with wii64 without a problem

    (wii games work for me using cfg usb loader, just convert isos to wbfs and put em in USB:/wbfs)

    oo what u could do is try the other usb slot in ur wii

    Thanks Baatobaat. I'm definitely going to try your advice when I re-do another USB drive. Currently I'm waiting on a USB enclosure so I can use an old 640GB drive. I really didn't want to use my 1.5TB drive since a lot of space would have gone unused. And my old 500GB WD My Book has heat and write-protect issues.

    other than updating ur cios i wouldnt know
    Do you feel my cios needs updating? If so, do you recommend a certain revision and guide to do so?

    Thanks again.

    im using the cios from hermes 222,223,224 http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...222-223-a.html

    and i have also waninkokos rev 20b

    but the old cios_38 rev 17 , is more compatible with triiforce, i would recommend that one if u also use truiiforce http://det1re.de/d/cios/cIOS38_rev17-Installer.zip
    there is a readme with install instructions included in this one

    I'm actually more interested in being compatiable with current games. Would hermes and waninkokos be the way to go for that?

    Back to the FAT32 partition. Do you know of a guide for using fat and the wii. Or do I just simply create a FAT32 partition mark it as active, then rip game backups to it? I know there's some file size limitation, and large files over a certain size need to be ripped in parts. Just not sure how. And could I use WBFS with a FAT32 partition?

    Thanks again.

    i would suggest only using a FAT partition.
    download games in WBFS format, or convert iso's with Wii Backup Manager
    if u convert it directly to ur FAT partition, it automaticly splits the file if needed.
    the games use up just s much space as on a wbfs partition, so wbfs partitions arent the way to go anymore

    just creat a folder called wbfs, so you'll get USB:/wbfs
    make sure your wbfs files go in that folder

    using fat is great, i have my favourite wiigames on there and 200+divx moves to watch with wiimc

    (if u ever want to try to run wiiware of hdd, please use uloader and not triiforce, it keeps ure hdd structure nice&clean)
