    is there a guide anywhere that explains exactly what to install and how? i have never modded my wii before so i don`t know how to install the files needed (what exactly are they?) do i just transfer them from my mac to a mem stick and put in the wii? sorry for being such a noob

    Gambia, The
    skedone: That's great! Especially games like de Blob should be supported.

    Assassin: http://maschell.de/mediawiki-1.6.10/index....e_Backup_Loader This is what you're looking for. If you don't even have the homebrew channel installed, please don't ask here. There's plenty of tutorials in the interwebz. Getting this to run requires patience and a lot of reading.

    thanx alot for the info. in the tutorial under prep/sd setup is says Rename "dvd-backup.dol" to "boot.dol" and create a folder titled "loader". Place the .dol in that folder. is that the same as using the backup loader inc icon by w4aqar or is it totaly different? also can i just put the channel version.dol.wad in the wad folder and install that? from what i`m guessing is the first way you just launch the launcher from the hombrew channel or you can install a launcher channel using the channel version.dol.wad it it will be a loader channel that always shows up on the wii menu. am i right? thanx for the help

    more or less then a noob...

    anyway.. homebrew channel was the first thing i had to do with the leaked loader.. i installed it .. and got it to load.. now for this.. i have the file "HB-backuplauncher.dol.wad" .. do i install this with the manager thing.. or just put it on the SDcard with a folder on the APPs folder?

    also. the leaked loader didnt work for me cause i have wiifree

    will this not work for me as well? or did someone with a chip try it with a success?

    Create a folder in the root of your SD card, name it wad, Put 'HB-backuplauncher.dol.wad' in the wad folder. Then load it from the HB channel using wadmanager121.

    geckooscios_installer will install a custom IOS v6 which is same as Waninkokos cIOS v5.
    You don't need to install it, if you already installed cIOS v5.

    I'm curious, does the cios_installer from Backup Launcher also have the cIOS patches?
    Like DVD_LowEncryptedRead?

    Personally, I think that the project should be called Virtual Modchip, the old GeckoOS colors could be replaced with silver and the robot-like lines and it could have a TV in the top left corner with a WiiKey picture on it, like a Virtual Modchip.

    Just my idea though.

    i just tried de blob at 3 different speeds. 1x, 8x, 16x... to my surprise 16x worked the best. i thought the lower the speed the more likely it was to work? 1x was the worst and 8x was in the middle

    Mario Super Sluggers NTSC
    Wario Ware: Smooth Moves NTSC
    ADDED: Super Mario Galaxy NTSC

    Hardware:
    NTSC (US) Wii 3.3U
    Stock A/V Cables
    NTSC only TV

    How backed up:
    Plextor 716A
    Imation DVD+R 8x
    Imgburn 2.4.2. (Write speed set at MAX, booktype DVD-ROM, stats: avg write 7.6x, max write 9.2x)

    Performance:
    MSS - Choppy vid, game loaded, I didn't go any further to check gameplay. Perhaps later. I'm so tickled it finally worked. Nice improvement WiiGator. I could never get this to work with the previous iteration of the loader. Nice not to get a GSOD.

    WWSM - Choppy vid, game loaded. No hindrance in actual gameplay noted. This game would play nicely if you could hit a button to skip the cut scenes.

    ADDED: SMG - No flaws. Longish load time, but I didn't even notice choppy video. Woohoo.

    Thanks.
