    How can I do this?
    I have the latest CFG USB Loader and it loads Metroid Prime Trilogy just fine. Thing is the console freezes if I try to play Prime 3. I know there was a workaround for Wii, but could anyone direct me to a fix for a vWii? Thanks in advance.

    The easiest thing to try would be to test WiiFlow or USBLoaderGX.

    The game used to need any DVD to be in the drive to work, but that was fixed in later cIOS revisions. So either update your cIOS (probably a good idea) or if you're very lazy put a Wii game in the drive (if this doesn't work update your cIOS and stop being lazy). The game works just fine in CFG Loader. Also, make sure IOS Reload is off and 002 fix is on.

    Just be careful to NOT install a wii IOS in vWii, this can cause a serious trouble on your console.

    you can play the other 2 games just fine?
    are you sure you are not playing a backup with metroid prime 3 taken out to fit a single layer dvd?

    My cIOS is ...
    Code:
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' standalone='yes'?>
    <app version="1">
        <name>d2x cIOS installer</name>
        <coder>dragbe, FIX94</coder>
        <short_description>Custom IOS installer</short_description>
        <long_description>Official Homeb  rew to install d2x cIOS maintained by davebaol, xabby666 and XFlak.</long_description>
        <arguments>
            <arg>--remove-cache</arg>
        </arguments>
        <no_ios_reload/>
        <version>Mod 2.2</version>
        <release_date>-</release_date>
    </app>
    My CFG USB Loader is CFGV71beta49

    Isn't that good enough?

    If not, how would I go about updating the cIOS (And I just tried using it with IOS Reload off and 002 fix on, no dice)

    Yeah, hence why I made this thread. Thanks.

    How would I know this? The WBFS has two parts: R3ME01.wbf1(3.43) and R3ME01.wbfs (3.99GB)

    Download this cIOS installer and run it via HBC.
    Question, is Alternate DOL on in settings? Toggle it whether it's on or off. Chances are you're missing the Metroid Prime 3 DOL.

    I found that this works if you play it with PAL version.

    When you select the game in CFG loader, hit "options" or "settings" or whatever and find Alternate DOL in one of those pages. I just want to see what happens when you switch it now.

    That's weird. There must be a problem with your ISO because there's no other reason metroid prime 1&2 would work but 3 wouldn't.

    Hmm. Now to try and find where to find another ISO... Although I do know it worked through a copied disc of this same ISO. Whatever, could anyone PM me an ISO DL link/torrent? I tried looking before posting this thread.

    Edit: I also tried extracting the main.dol from the ISO and it didn't work to boot Prime 3, but the game booted as without it.

    Search in gametdb the game md5, that way you can compare both hash, securing a working copy.

    They are different, but that's probably for turning the wbfs into iso again.

    I found the torrent I downloaded and it has comments like this:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    And like this:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    So I assume my problem isn't unique.

    So alternate DOL is off, and IOS reload is on, and you have the latest cIOS installed, then there may be something wrong with your game. Is there any particular reason you use ISO files over WBFS? CFG loader loads wbfs files just fine and they're smaller.

    Yeah. I believe it's the game.
    Just found this comment:

    THIS IS A BAD RIP. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. ONLY METROID PRIME 1 AND 2 WORK ON THIS RIP. 3 DOES NOT.

    I downloaded ryneg0d's rip, and all three games and the MP2 multiplayer start on Configurable USB Loader, and launch fine from the game's main menu without any boot.dol dickery if you're homebrew apps and cIOS are up to date. ryneg0d's rip is here:

    Obviously the link he gave was of a dead torrent. Guess I'll have to go back into looking for a DL somewhere.

    Sorry for the hassle guys, and thanks a lot!

    Use Configurable USB Loader Mod 70 r78 & works with no issues. like the other members have mentioned. Try a different rip too. But I would definately upgrade your cfg usb loader to the one I mentioned.
