You can probably find the information you need to solve your problem somewhere on this site. I don't think you will get too much help by saying you are a pirate though.
Hello, I am an EXTREME NOOB that literally knows absolutely nothing about this stuff. I bought a Wii that already had a hard and soft mod because I thought it was pretty cool that I had a 500GB hd with all the games I could ever dream of. I am NOT a big gamer or computer guy, the Wii was my first gaming purchase since I bought a new PS2 back in the day. I am a mechanical engineer and I can normally figure everything out, but I am smart enough to know when my knowledge has been trumped. I have read posts, guides, tutorials, etc. and have been unsuccesful finding this exact problem. I do not feel confident enough extrapolating the information I probably need from multiple guides; I really need somebody just flat out walking me through it and holding my hand, or I just need to pay someone to fix it.
So everything was going great, but one day my Configurable USB Loader channel just stopped working. When I click it, it says something like "load failed, press any key to reboot".
So I started using the Homebrew Channel, no problem. The only issue is that when I exit a game back to the main Wii page and go back into Homebrew, the apps don't show up!
The kicker to this issue is that if I just restart my Wii, they still won't show up! I have been able to wait 5-10 minutes with the Wii off, then start it back up, and the apps will usually show up, with the following being the deciding factors:
I have noticed that when I boot my Wii up, if the blue light flashes quickly and then if immediately following it flashes again and the first screen opens right then (where there are like Wii's disclaimers and you click A to proceed), then 100% of the time when I load homebrew the apps show up.
If I boot my Wii and the blue light does not flash the second time immediately and it takes the wii more than 5 seconds for the first screen to load up, then 100% of the time the Homebrew apps will NOT load.
Can anybody help me figure this out? I lost the guy's number that I bought this Wii from over 6 months ago. Everything was going great, but now I suddenly can only play a game if it loads the apps, and I know that if I want to switch games then I will have to wait 5-30 minutes to be able to see the Homebrew apps again!
Well I don't understand how I am a pirate from what I said, unless people who use an external hard drive and a USB Loader are considered "pirates"...? I bought the Wii as is and have never added a game too it, other than my Netflix disc.
Isn't this site "wiihacks.com"? So please enlighten me as to how I came to a site which is literally named after hacking a Wii to ask how to help with my hacked Wii?
I'm not being sarcastic at all...before you say nobody will help me because I am a pirate, please explain why and then maybe I'll realize I'm asking the wrong people.
you should use the usb loader gx and install cios 249/38 rev 14
I didn't know that, but it doesn't change the fact that GX crashes with a lot of games. Cfg USB Loader has better compatibility. I have never used WiiFlow so I can't confirm this myself, but I have heard that it works just as well as Cfg.
