    I don't know what you would have to do to fix it but my pirated VC games all launch just fine from the SD Card.

    I updated through the Waninkoko updater.

    I don't know what you did or didn't do, but I followed this guide and it works fine.

    However, if you want to make it faster, you can skip steps 1 and 2 and then in step three choose "network install" instead of "wad install".

    it should work, but right now you have to load them into system memory first, and then move then to your SD card through your data managment, you can't just load the wads to your SD card and have them run.

    funnystory,

    install preloader.

    install patched IOS 60.

    you will get a soft brick. (no way to avoid it). load preloader and using HBC reinstall preloader. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES DELETE ANY IOS, including the patched one you just installed.

    After reinstalling preloader, it should work.

    I had the same problem... its because some guides tell you to update using waninkokos 4.0 and cios36 rev 9/10 but forget to tell you to install the fixed IOS60 which is required for SD loading.

    Same thing happened to me but I didnt realise I had to reinstall preloader and instead deleted the IOS and full bricked my wii.

    Gambia, The
    There is actually a pretty easy way to avoid it. Just install preloader after the patched IOS60.

    i installed cIOS rev9 then updated to 4.0 from 3.2 through nintendo.
    Then i ran IOS downgrader(NOT CIOS DOWNGRADER) from waninkoko.
    And i can play cracked wads from the SD card just fine.

    Heres the guide i used

    http://www.yafaze.com/wii/4.0updateguide.html

    I used method one because at the time a lot of people were reporting high failures of updating using waninkokos updater.

    You can use method 2 which uses his updater and then you wouldnt have to run IOS downgrader afterwards.

    If your talking about the one in the guide i used i dont think it because when i updated to 4.0 and all that stuff i never had preloader installed before hand and my system never got corrupted.

    I think in that guide that the IOS 60 gets patched before you upgrade to 4.0 where was doing it with the 60bf wad your doing it after updating to 4.0 and preloader already uses ios60 and thats what corrupts it.

    Its something like that to be honest i cant remember for shit because theres 1,000 + guides and everyone of them is different or uses different names files to do the same exact thing.

    To be safe i would send a PM to kongnutz on this board.Hes the author of those guides on that site.
