Hello everyone, I bought a second hand wii recently but I don't know when its updated last and what version it is. homebrew channel, usb loader gx, gamecube backup launcher, usb loader cfg and NeoGamma R9 Beta 56 already installed. Usb loader gx working but I cannot open some games such as sports resort, smash bros brawl, mario kart etc.
when I try connect to the internet wii asks "perform a wii system update?" with support code 11172. I always said no to that and it appears i cannot connect to the internet without an update. Btw my wii can find my wi-fi connection at home. If I try to open homebrew channel nothing show up but those little bubbles.
Do I need to update my wii in someway? Could I turn my wii to its factory settings for softmod it again from the start? And should I?
I want to use wii for wii games, homebrew games/apps, ported games like quake, all emulators I could install and some other things like openbor games.
I am really a rookie about wii. Where I can find useful info about my problems and expand my knowledge? Where should I start? Any tries for help would be appreciated much.

Hello.:)

Is your Wii a PAL Region Model ?

When you power on your Wii comes maybe such Screen ?

No worries if not,this comes a little later.:)


When you are on the Homebrew Channel,please press the "HOME" button and look on the right upper Corner:

Please tell us the Version Number and the IOS.

What happens please,when you PRESS and HOLD the RESET Button on the Wii and power it on ?
Maybe this Screen (maybe Black or White Background) appears ?

P1060530.JPG

No worries if not,this comes also a little later.:)

When you are in the Wii´s System Settings,please look at the Version Number on the right upper Corner please:

First of all thank you for your quick response. I couldn't answer your questions because I am away from my home for a couple of days because my current duties. That was unexpected, sorry. I will post all of the details you asked with photos in a few days. You gave me a good start for understanding where I am. Thank you again.

Hello again. Probably my wii's region model is PAL, since I bought it in Turkey.

When I power on my wii, these two screens appears respectively. First safety warning and wii's main menu.

20191020_161255.jpg


I opened Homebrew Channel and pressed the home button as you said. My IOS is IOS58 and version number 24.32

I pressed and hold reset button on the wii and turned it on, but it
started as usual. That screen you mentioned didn't open.

I opened the system menu and saw my wii's version is 4.3E

Hello.:)

Thank you for your detailed Answer,great work ! :yay:

The first Thing for me to be noticed is your IOS58 Verson which is outated.
The next Thing is you have no Priiloader installed (that Thing when you press and hold RESET on your Wii and did not appear.)

Now you have several options to Update/Install the needed Things on your Wii.

First Thing you need a sysCheck from your Wii as @jeannotte suggested:

https://gbatemp.net/threads/posting-a-system-check.300279/
Please use this Version.It generates an "sysCheck.csv" File on your SD Card Root.
With this you can go to the next Step.

The easiest and safest Way is to use @XFlak´s Mod Mii for the Update:
https://gbatemp.net/threads/modmii-for-windows-official-support-topic.207126/

Install this Windows Tool please.It makes 2 Shortcuts:
- ModMii <-- please use this Version !!!
- ModMii Skin

You can simply DRAG and DROP the sysCheck.csv on this SHORTCUT:
uuuuue Titel-1.jpg

It opens a new Windows with YOUR Files which needs to update:
Ohneuuuuu Titel-1.jpg

Download all Files please.
They are stored in C:\Programs (or Program Files)\XFlak\ModMii\COPY_TO_SD (or wherever you previously installed ModMii).

It also will download the Multi Mod Manager (it has to be copied to your Wii´s SD Card:\apps)
You need this Wii Application to install all this Files.

Also the PRIILOADER for install.
Recommended to install this FIRST before you update any IOSes !!

(If you always have this Applications on your SD Card please use this from ModMii maybe your Files are also outdated).

!!! Please read also the Documentation which is generated by ModMii.It contains IMPORTANT Informations about the Update !!!


Good Luck
Thank you.:)
