    Virginize Black Wii 4.1E w/ WODE Installed (Downgraded from 4.3E)

    Hi

    I just Downgraded a Black Wii (bought this year) from 4.3E using the tutorial and all has went well but now Gamecube games wont work with the WODE (they were working on 4.3E). So im thinking if i can Virginize 4.1E then GC games will work again via the WODE. Unless someone out there has a better suggestion?

    EDIT: Just tried using an Original Gamecube Disc via Flat Mode, i just get a black screen...which is what i get via WODE as well....

    Since this is a WODE related issue I've moved your post to the WODE forum so you can get appropriate help from the right people.

    He is talking about usb loading GC games through his WODE device.

    yeah i know they cant read burnt games....but i have a WODE installed so that problem is solved. What's happening is if i load a GC iso via WODE or use an Original GC disc, the GC logo comes up in the Wii Disc channel, i hit ok, and then i get a black screen. Im guessing it has to do with an IOS but i cant find out which one and which version i need......

    when the wii is in GC mode, the ios's aren't used. Changing them wouldn't make a difference.
    Since you updated to 4.3, then downgraded, you should have the newest BC and MIOS (things the wii uses for GC mode)...
    hmmm...

    I dont think my problem has anything to do with the WODE, as i can disconnect it, Load an Orginal GC disc and still get the same problem. The WODE is transparent in this case.
    The problem i have is software related as gamecube games only stopped working after i followed the 4.3 SoftMod Guide ( http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...mod-guide.html )

    the 4.3 softmod guide does install a cmios.
    that could be your problem there. download mios v10 with NUSD, and install with wad manager
    pack as wad (NUSD) and select a patched ios to install (wad manager)

    Probably need to reinstall BC and/or MIOS would be my best guess, but I'm neither a gamecube person nor a WODE person. You can use DOP-Mii to do so or download them from NUSD. Both guides are in the tutorials section.

    Well see that's information you didn't include in your original post. Had I known that, I would've closed your thread and suggested you post in the thread of the guide you followed.

    Initially after downgrading i had MIOS -cmios (WiiGator)= mios v4 with WiiGator's GC Backup Launcher 0.2 installed (which is embedded in the downgrade from the tutorial) and when running a GC game (WODE or OG Disc) the bootloader would come up, game would run, but only for a few seconds and then id get an error which was like the disc read errors i used to get on the Gamecube console...So i uninstalled mios v4 with WiiGator's GC Backup Launcher 0.2 and now i get the black screen. Sure i could reinstall it, but im still left with unplayable GC games....
