Okay. I'm a noob here, but I'm also aware that there are many topics posted about this problem. My wii's firmware is 4.3U just to let you guys know. Every time I load up Black ops it keeps freezing at "loading.." and I've done research about this problem. Sadly, I keep coming up with quite a few solutions and I honestly don't know which one to use. I read that using the "cIOS installer Xr21" could fix the problem. So, I decided to use it and installed this precisely: I selected my ISO that my Usb loader uses (IOS 249) with base "IOS36 v3607" into slot "IOS250" by using "network" installation. After the installation was completed I went to see if Black ops worked and it still had the same problem. All of my games still work (thankfully). I was messing around in my Usb loader's game load settings and noticed something strange. When I was changing my IOS's a menu popped up informing me, "Make sure to have hermes rev 4 installed for UsbLoaderGX to run!" everytime I get to where my "IOS 224" should've been. So, back to google I went. I search up "Hermes rev 4", but only came up with its latest version (Hermes v5.1). I read that installing Hermes v5.1 in 224 slot with base 57 would solve the Black ops issue, but the problem is that I don't have IOS 224 in UsbLoaderGX! What am I doing wrong? Is missing IOS 224 my problem, or should I use wads rather than network installation? All would appreciated if anyone can tell me what to precisely do. If using Hermes v5.1 can solve my problem, then "please" tell this noob how to use it correctly for Black ops. Thank you.
