First of all, thanks to all the amazing smart people on this board providing the methods and tools to do some really great stuff with the Wii. I appreciate all of the work done here.
I'm pretty new to all this and admit that I'm ignorant so I'm hoping I provide all the correct info here. I searched the forum and found people describing similar problems to mine but nothing that looked the same.
I was running firmware 4.3 and I downgraded to 4.2, intalled trucha bug, CIOS 36 Rev17 USB loader GX etc etc and everything works fantastic.
There's just one small annoying issue.
I turn on the Wii play my backups from the USB hard drive and everything works fine.
I go to turn off the Wii with the Wiimote power button and it "turns off" but the screen goes black and the little light stays green/yellowish instead of the Wii actually turning "off" (red light on the Wii and Blue Screen on my TV indicative of no video signal)
I try to push power on the Wiimote but it only flashes the 4 lights and doesn't connect. I push the power button on the Wii Console and it does come on and go to the Wii Home screen like normal, but the Wiimote still won't connect. I haven't tried resyncing with the red buttons so I don't know if that works but in all honesty, I shouldn't have to. The Wiimote will often times lose connectivity going from the USB Loader back to the main Wii Home Screen as well.
If I hold down the power button on the console to reset the Wii (red light on power button), I can turn it back on with the Wiimote power button and everything works like normal.
Any clues on how to fix this?
Thanks for the tip. I'll check that out when I get home. Maybe that will make the Wii reset every time and "fix it."
It doesn't address the whole "Wiimote disconnect when I exit USB Loader GX" issue though.
Any thoughts out there?
This could be because I use the IOS222 version of CFG, though, and back when I used GX, it only supported IOS249.
About the wiimotes not turning the Wii on, sounds like they are synced to another (or no) Wii. Changing firmware can cause this (I've had it with NAND emulation, wiimotes not connecting)
Start up your wii in the system menu, then hit the red sync button on the wii and after that on the wiimote (don't use 1+2, use the sync button in the battery compartment)
This should fix the wiimote not turning the wii on.
You can connect the wiimotes without syncing, but that means you'll have to do it everytime and it won't turn the wii on with that wiimote then
Personally, my wiimote 'disconnects' also when I chose my game in cfg USB loader but hitting any button will automatically reconnect it (which won't happen when the wiimote isn't synced, so above solution should fix that also)
