    Hi there,

    I have some trouble, I haven't touched my Wii in ages, last week I've read about USB loading with NGC games I was like SHIIIIIT gogogogo! And after doing so and installing the stuff I saw I was outdated with many things like diverse IOS'es and other things. I thought hmm DarkCorp prevents me from doing some stuff, let's start with cleaning my Wii! Well after fellowing the completesoftmodguide and updating my system.(I want to see letterbomb in action!) I saw my Wii still loaded backup discs through my Disc Channel... >_>

    I removed nearly everything except the HBC which I will remove later when my Wii is 100% cleaned up.

    What's the problem and who can help me? I am already trying to remove DarkCorp trough the lite version.(Full version did NOT work)

    Oh and I've learned my lesson: never use DarkCorp once again. ;)

    Edit: How can I remove DarkCorp without the app?

    Don't bother uninstalling. Just download/install ModMii and update your IOSes: http://gbatemp.net/topic/207126-modmii-for-windows-official-support-topic/

    AFAIK, DarkCorp is just a bunch of patched IOSes for loading backups. ModMii will give you the tools to write over them them with the latest versions. No need to uninstall.

    wiismodrome is correct. DARKCORP is a group of patched IOS with backup loading abilities, along with some few other patches that most other patched IOS have.

    You should be able to use ModMii to download all clean IOS and then install them over the DARKCORP IOS on your Wii using a wad managing app like WiiMod or NMM.

    Your one of the makers of DarkCorp aren't you? :D

    Thanks for the tips, I've ModMii on my PC, but do I just need to make a list(or use the one included with DC) with IOS's I need to download? Of can ModMii do that for me?(E.g. I select the right option and he does the work?)

    To answer one of your other questions, no, formatting your Wii will NOT remove Darkcorp. You'll have to manually install IOSes over the ones Darkcorp provides. Just be careful and don't uninstall any of them. Just overwrite them.

    Modmii should be able to provide you with clean IOSes you can install over Darkcorp, yes.

    It did not work... >_>

    I've done it like this:

    Opened the Readme file in Darkcorp Full 1.1

    Fellowed by selecting ALL IOS's on ModMii that were mentioned in the Read Me.

    Installed all the wads trough MMM.(Multi Mod manager)

    Still my Wii reads my burned Mario Tennis DVD.(Tested a few other games as well.)

    Oh and when I try to start it gives an error:

    An Error has Occured.
    Press the eject button blah blah blah.

    Think that means that the only infected IOS is the System Menu IOS, which I think ModMii will infect in the same way as darkcorp (some people will tell you it is "highly advisable" to have the IOS patched that way. I disagree. There is no need to have any IOS patched at all). If you really care, use something like dop-Mii to download and install an actual clean version of the System Menu IOS (if you're on SM 4.2 or above, make sure you do not have a region changed Korean wii before doing that, or you'll get Error 003). Otherwise you could leave it and hope for the best.

    DOPMii ^^ Now your saying I remember I've used that before on a friends Wii when he had some trouble ^_^

    Right busy with Dop-Mii, I am re-installing ALL my IOS's on the latest version. I don't mind losing a few things.(But I'll leave my Bootmii IOS though.)

    Glad to hear that you got it sorted. BTW, if you install the latest HBC 1.1.0, it can update Bootmii as well.

    I wouldn't call it "infecting", and a (correctly) patched SM IOS doesn't hurt anything, just gives you more brick protection and recovery options. You yourself are telling him to patch an IOS by saying to use IOS60 in slot 70.

    Um, nope, never said that. What I actually said was not to install a clean IOS if he had a region changed Wii and an SM >= 4.2 (in which case my advice would have been to install a clean IOS60 and SM 4.1). I never said to install any sort of patched IOS. The guy has BootMii/boot2 he needs no other "brick protection" (if in any brick BootMii/boot2 is gone, the Wii is screwed anyway). There is no legitimate reason to have any patched IOS in a regular IOS slot on that Wii. If he REALLY wants, he could have them in other slots (2XX or whatever), but there is absolutely no need to have patched IOS in proper slots. Patched IOS have been known to cause instability and problems at numerous times over the years.

    Sorry, I misread your post. Since he has bootmii as boot2, he obviously won't need a patched SM IOS. I was just saying that you shouldn't act like patching is something horrible.

    However, a properly patched SM IOS shouldn't cause problems.

    There is good reason why since HW_AHBPROT was made available, WiiBrew has shunned any and all apps relying on patched IOS. Just because you haven't had any problems yet with your patched SM IOS doesn't mean it can't cause problems. Before the HBC started rejecting all patched IOS (turning upside down when running on a patched IOS), virtually all of the bug reports Team Twiizers received about HBC were directly caused by patched IOS of various types. They quite clearly affect the stability of the code being run and can cause things to mess up. Wherever possible, (on any platform), the cleanest and best solution is ALWAYS to leave the original software untouched as much as possible. This ensures a high level of stability (as high as an untouched system).

    I didn't say ANY patched IOS, I said the SM one. I also bolded and underlined the word "properly", which you seemed to have missed.

    Up until recently, AHBPROT has been a huge failure, considering it only worked if you had a valid network connection. I have been disappointed in TT because they never addressed the issue, at least not on HackMii. Instead they just stayed quiet.
