Hi and sorry that i ask again, but ... read this: At first a quote from my other posting: After a very long night with upgrades, downgrades, Wii initialisation and much more my Wii is now back at sysmenu 3.2e(v290) and i have the black screen(Wii hangs) problem too. I have now no more idea what can be the reason for my black screen if i try to use hermes cIOS 222/223? cIOS 249 from waninkoko work fine, but, and thats the reason for my question, it's impossible to use it with the IOS reload blocker. I'm sure i try'd every USB Loader settings in every combination and it doesn't help. Is it possible that bootmii(IOS installation!(for the NAND backup/restore function)) ...? Or the Preloader 0.29 ...? Or a hack in the hacks.ini from Preloader ...? I use a way like this to mod my Wii: 1. Bannerbomb 2. HBC 3. cIOS 249 rev. 10 4. IOS Downgrader 5. Preloader 0.29 6. HackMii beta2 7. CIOScorp 8. Hermes cIOS 222 as 36, 223 as 37 9. USB Loader GX up to rev. 549 I try'd this with sysmenu 4.0e and 3.2e, but only the cIOS from Waninkoko work with this combination. Any ideas? p.s. First i go sleep now, i can answer tonight or tomorrow.
