    Hi, i have just bought my first Wii (i know, kinda after in the game:P).

    Have followed this guide https://www.flashback.org/leave.php?u=https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-softmod-a-wii-and-play-backup-wii-gamecube-and-wiiware-games.360687/ really outdated and missing information, so i had to do my own reasearch.


    1.I have installed HBC with Letterbomb 4.3E (Updated it to latest version after it was installed)
    2.Backuped up my Wii Nand
    3.Installed Priiloader v0.8 and a different hack_hash.ini file cause that one did not work and enabled Region free EVERYTHING', 'Block Disc Updates', 'Remove NoCopy Save File Protection', 'Block Online Updates', 'Remove Diagnostic Disc Check', 'Move Disc Channel', 'Skip health screen'
    4.Installed USB Loader GX according to the guide above (pls check the video for information instead, otherwise i will try to write all down)

    Now i am not sure anymore cause you know when you get problem or the guides are outdated you are going deeper and deeper into Google.

    I had after some trouble got some games on the HDD, plugged it in and it was showing the games on USB Loader GX (Not on Wiiflow) but when i start a game it just gives me a black screen.

    After some searching it seems to be the cIOS so i followed this guide https://sites.google.com/site/completesg/backup-launchers/installation and installed beta53-alt.

    After that i get black screen when i start USB Loader GX directly instead for just when i try to start a game.


    Hope someone can help me, have been up all night to try to fix this for our trip tomorrow but if i just get it to work i will be glad :)


    Edit: I know i have installed the cIOSX rev20b according to the first guide but i do not know if that can be a problem cause i have installed the newer cIOS installer with the beta file.


    Edit2:Is there a way to see what kind of changes i have made (More below HBC channel)? how can i uninstall software i have installed on the wii,

    I suggest you to uninstall the cIOSes with the installer you installed them with, then reinstall them with the latest installer.
    EDIT: Delete the folder apps/usbloader-gx on your SD card. And what modifications do you want see and uninstall?

    i hacked my wii and installed with the letter bomb at http://please.hackmii.com/ and then installed usb uploader, cfg uploader ,and wii flow. i can play all of my backups just fine except WarioWars and Mario Kart. When I push to play it returns me back to the Main system screen. But thats the only games it does it on. Not sure how to do a system check i'm really new to this. Did I not do something right when I set it up. I followed techman on youtubes tutorial. this address: . I followed it to the T and everything works great except for a few games i listed above. That the last one i followed anyways I have done 6 i think in all but similar to the above process in video.

    Right now all of my games run off of a 16gb flashdrive my harddrive arrives next week and i want to convert over. Can I do this and not lose my games. I have some I downloaded but when i put them on a different usb because the other one is full they want show up at all in any of the uploaders. My system is 4.1U. I thought the games were bad copies at first so I borrowed my friends copy and same issue still returns to main system screen. Everything else is on a 32 gb sd card . my wii is a 4.1 U Please Help.
    Perhaps it the tutorial I followed where can I access one files and all to redo it correctly and up to date and see if thats the issue perhaps. I realize the above one is really old. I've been trying for 3 days and have tried every tutorial i can find. If someone can point me to a tutorial I can go from there.

    Make sure your flashdrive is formatted FAT32.
    EDIT: Are the games from the same region as your Wii?

    Not sure. Sorry I'm really new to this how do I tell? It is Fat 32 because i could never get wbfs to work right as the above video wanted and other tutorials i read on here said to use fat 32.
    If i was to start all over would i lose the games I already have. i'm moving to a external hardrive next week and have the same concern. I have also read they want show up in usb loader sometimes after transferring. I have 13 games on my USB and only Mario Kart and Wario Ware have the issue.

    Well, I could guide you step by step, but you would have to start over, excluding the games on your flashdrive.

    You only retain games you have on your flashdrive!

    So no eShop games? No games' save data? I don't want you to lose anything important...

    no eshop. And no save date because i haven't played any yet at least not far enough to worry about the save data. Just enough to see if any would play.

    I also have games I downloaded that are in wbfs format that i can't get to show up at all if you could possibly help me with that as well later.

    OK. Did you region change your Wii? I hope not. Also, it will be like a brand new Wii (well, except hardware), so, again, you will only retain what is NOT on the Wii's internal memory. BTW, my timezone is GMT+1 (now +2, because of DST) so what would be the time we could do it?

    I thought you may be sorry. If you could give mr the files needed and something to go by i believe i could do it.

    Wait, two more questions. What is the file format of the Wii games on your flashdrive? ISO or WBFS? What base IOSes and cIOSes did you use during d2x installation?

    Hmmm... Everything seems correct. Did you download the boot IOS 249 version of USB Loader GX?
    EDIT: Did you download or rip Mario Kart and the other one that doesn't start?

    yes, i think so whichever he told me in the video sorry i'm a bit confused when it comes to the details. Mario kart I ripped and i didn't work so i downloaded and it still didn't work. The other game i ripped with usb uploader and it didn't work.
