    Hey all, I'm going to explain my situation to you so you can get a better understanding of what I'm trying to accomplish.

    I have a legacy wiikey (the first one) and I would like to play a backup of the new super mario bros game. Apparently it has new copy protection, so to get around it people have used NeoGamma. I've just installed the homebrew channel, and NeoGamma is in my SD cards app folder.. When I try to run it, the screen goes black and the wii seems to crash.

    I gather this is because I don't have a cIOS installed? Could someone please lead me in the direction of where I have to go next? I'm not sure which one to install, I've seen many of them, and I don't even know how to install them either..

    What is a cIOS anyway? Can I uninstall it later on if I want to? I would like the most up to date version, also. Thanks for any help. [​IMG]

    Neogamma uses 249. You can get the installer and read more about it here: http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/cios/waninkoko

    Thank you for the fast responce, much appreciated!

    And just some feedback, the NeoGamma description says.. "an installed cIOS is required for this application to be functional!"
    It never tells you which one you actually need..

    Anyways, thanks again.

    Well, I try to install the cIOS but it fails, returns some error that's a negative number which is 4 digits long, so I tried restoring the trucha bug or something and I'm just giving up on this... lol

    Seems like waaaaaay too much work, I'll just wait till a wiikey patch. I did try editing the .iso though, but I didn't have much luck.. I'll give that another shot.
