So, after much delay, I finally softmodded my wii. I used a guide that was a little out of date, it had cios38rev14, HBC 1.0.6, Priiloader 0.4, and a bad wad installer, but it had them all there and handy, so I used those files. Well, got around the bad wad installer, and started installing some apps. I looked online for a USB loader that worked with "ordinary" harddrives (not WBFS) and found CFG USB Loader. Fat32 and NTFS? Heck yes. So downloaded CFG USB Loader 62.1 from their website, and fired it up. Didn't work. I could load the program, but when it tried to mount the device it timed out. So, here's what I went through to fix it. I read it had to be plugged into a specific USB port. Alright. Plugged it into USB 0. No change. I read you needed to have a specific configuration to read NTFS drives. Alright. Set "NTFS = 1" and... nothing. My installation (off the CFG site) was very barebones, alot of the files I saw mentioned weren't in it. So I downgraded from 62.1 to a complete version of CFG Loader 61 that I found. No change. Though I did get some better skins. I read that it didn't work with Cios38rev14, they suggested I use Hermes 222/223 v4 instead. So I go and install that to my wii. Set CFG to load with hermes and... blackscreen. So then I just installed CIOS38rev19. I read that rev20 was out there, but couldn't find it, and 19 was above the (18 or higher) requirement anyway. Reset all the settings in CFG, set NTFS = 1, and... still nothing. I went and installed the latest HBC, 1.0.8. I read it had better hardware support for apps. Worth a try. No change. I don't know what I'm doing wrong! The harddrive is an ordinary 80gig Wester Digital Caviar, formatted in NTFS, and inside a USB enclosure. Can anyone tell me how to get this set up?
