I recently softmodded a virgin 3.2E. I've got Hackmii 5 and the HBC installed. I then used Waninkoko's 4.2 updater to take the system to 4.2E. The 4.2 installation was successful and I could seem to load homebrew apps without any issues. I then tried to use USBloader GX but it wouldn't see the drive. It just froze with a black screen. I thought this was probably due to the fact that cIOS38r14 hadn't been installed, so I installed that and then got that working (although I noticed that it seemed to be very unreliable. The first few times it worked great, but then it failed to load with a black screen 4-5 times in a row). The hard drive works perfectly on another Wii (but that has a Wiikey installed). I then noticed that Waninkoko's instructions said you needed to run Dop-IOS and downgrade IOS30 to v1040. I ran Dop-IOS and selected IOS30 and selected '-' to do the upgrade but it just crashed with a load of gargaged text on the screen. It does this every time I try it. I also tried to re-install the latest IOS61 as per Waninkoko's instructions but noticed this says 'without the sig-hash'. When I select the IOS, it then asks to confirm the installation with the sig hash. There's isn't an option to select 'without' the sig-hash from what I can see. I didn't try and upgrade and simply pressed the 'B' button to go back and the Wii just crashed again. The HBC screen is upside down and I can see from Waninkoko's notes that this is fixed by re-installing the IOS61, but I can't install it without knowing the above and I'm also suspecting it's just going to crash just like when I tried downgrading IOS30. Any ideas on that? After all the above I noticed that there was a pre-requisite 'Prerequisites: You must have IOS30 v1040. If you don't, use Dop-IOS to downgrade it, before proceeding.'. Unfortuantely I didn't see that, so this is may be the issue? I've tried to use Dop-IOS to install IOS30 v1040, but again, if I try and install it the Wii just crashes. Any help appreciated.
