its 2018... i already have done some modding this year and revisited some old consoles (Henkaku 3.65 vita, switch running 5.1.0 and hekatmosphere, found my old cycloDS cart, added things) anyway, i found a wii in my garage that a roommate left behind and i decided to do the letterbomb exploit method to install homebrew channel and i ended up using a SD card from my first modded wii (modded 3 others with great success but back in 2011) First thing i did is check to see if there were any updated versions of anything i used on the first wii before passing anything over to the wii, updated only the ones i was going to use (UsbLoaderGx, d2x, MMM and such. but honestly there are too many methods and even more outdated guides. i went with the one i knew how to do which goes in this order i believe: -Letterbomb -Homebrew Channel -Priiloader -Added a folder with old apps and a bunch of WADs i dont think i need -D2x cios installer this is where the problems started. first i tried looking for my newest cios (v10 beta52) didn't show up shut down the wii normally, it hangs. i take the SD card out and take my cios's and make individual folders for them and place them on the base of the SD now i see them showing up as options. i installed d2x-v10-beta52 base 56 slot 249 revision? (i think i chose the first option) installs successfully i go to the next base and slot (base 57/slot 250) with the same v10-beta52 to install it tries to download official ios 57, fails. so i try to put that official ios i manually downloaded from my PC and place it on the base of the SD. it doesn't find it in D2x so i said screw it. i still tried to run homebrew. most homebrew works the only issue i see is when i used WAD games (Super Mario 64 and F-Zero X were the only ones i tried) they would start up normal, ask for classic controller (i used official gamecube controller) i press A, i get the first 10 seconds of F zero X to go, Hangs. Super Mario 64? i get to start the game, load file 1 (new game) i get to peach's intro, Hangs. All i want to do now is either fix it up to get it playing my WADs and MAYBE backups or undo it all and start fresh with Modmii (which i hear is the bees knees when it comes to wii softmodding. Anybody have suggestions?
