    Hi and thanks for your time.


    I have a Wii 3.4u bought in August

    All I want to do is play iso games ONLY. Nothing more.

    I have Homebrew channel loaded and Neogamma as well. They are the ONLY files that have been put on my Wii as per a tutorial from another site. [​IMG]

    When I try to load a game through Gamma I get this message...'DVD Read Err (972) no cIOS'

    All I want to do is go to Homebrew channel then pick Neo... then play games while keeping the ORIGINAL settings and menu if possible.

    What else do I need to do to play and stop my system from bricking?


    Thanks again!

    If it says "no cIOS", what do you think you're missing? [​IMG]

    Don't need the sarcasm thanks.

    That wasn't sarcasm
    (or at least not meant like that)

    To be able to use NeoGamma for backups, you'll need to install a cIOS
    If you don't know how to do that, read one of the guides
    like http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171901
    you can skip updating to 4.2 and only do the modify steps (you can also skip the remove stub IOS step)

    O.k. so correct me if i am wrong.


    Starting over I need to back up the NAND first?

    Install bannerbomb, HBC and bootmii?

    Then I have to restore the Trucha bug 4.1 or lower?

    Then I have to install the Waninkokos cIOS (249 and 250)?

    Then install Neogamma?



    Keep in mind i have 3.4u and ONLY want to play games. Not interested in changing menus or whatever.

    I want to keep it clean, no frills, just what's necessary.



    Thanks for your help!

    Yeah, just do that and you'll be playing backup games with Neogamma in no time [​IMG]

    Yes. Use the Trucha Bug Installer. (But, you're a n00b. Don't trust you with those. [​IMG] )
