    I've succesfully managed to re-mod (4.1) (hurrah)a wii for my nephew (bless him) i've even got the usb loader working and backupped all of his games (he's chuffed to bits !!!)

    The thing is I bought my sister (his mother) Your Shape for Christmas. This requires a Wii update for the software to work, whilst I may be a bit silly, im not that silly that i'd update it !!!!!

    I thought id do some reading though about updating a wad file ios58-64 v5918, so i went to wad manager updated this but still no joy with the camera

    worse still when i power down the wii power it back on nothing happens, the disc drive makes a couple of whirring noises but nothing.

    the only thing i can do is hold down the power and reset button together.

    from here i can load my usb loader, if i try and load wii system menu nothnig happens, but when i try to run homebrew it tells me its not installed, although if i load the usb loader or i can get back into wii system menu and from there i can get back into the homebew channel no probs

    what have i done (apart from be a complete idiot and messed everything up) can I save the wii ?

    thanks as always [​IMG]

    Do you have priiloader installed and this is how you can access USB Loader?

    You are probably referring to preloader.
    Preloader 0.4 is known for not being able to load the HBC from it's menu.

    To be clear : Do you have a black screen now?

    also: do you want to load the game with usb loader?
    and : can you play the game from disc?

    IMPROTANT : CAN YOU ACCES THE WII SETTINGS?

    Hi People !!!

    Okay it's a white screen with a few options, im not at home at the moment but im 99.9% sure when i hold down power and reset and it boots to this.

    Okay i'll do my best

    When I press the power button nothing happens. I get a blue screen on my samsung tv as if the wii hasn't powered up, yet the disc drive makes a few noises.

    Holding down power and reset lets me into priiloader.

    I can get into the wii system menu, so i assume getting into wii settings wont be a problem.

    When I try to play the game via usb loader i get the safety message then i get a black screen saying the camera isn't connected, its connected to the inner of the two usb ports as my usb hdd is plugged into the outer one.

    If i try and load the game through the wii system menu (via the official disc channel) it is telling me i need to perform an update to run the game. Obviously I'm not going to do that

    I can't lie i am very much a noob at all this, i really get a little bit daunted by the talk of different cios etc ... i was chuffed (and slightly amazed) i got it working int the first place

    ps

    ive just had a thought

    to get it to boot again should i just goto the sd card on the wii system menu and re-intsall boot.dol ?

    I was actually reading about up this issue yesterday; and read that Your Shape actually needs IOS58-64-v6176 function properly. I'd recommend you checkout narse1979's thread over at wiihacks for the lastet IOS'; all in wad form.

    Your Shape for Christmas? I wasn't aware that was a Wii game. ^_~

    In all honesty, though, the above suggestions are all good.

    Did you get your Wii working?

    You have a few reasonable options to choose from.

    Personally,

    I would choose to install 222, and boot from that. Which is what "ThePowerOutage" suggested.

    The EASIEST way is to reinstall Priiloader v0.6! Just overwrite the previous version.

    currently the only method to load Your Shape is using disc channel. either original or darkcorp. however, with cIOSX-rev21 and IOS58 support this may change in the near future.

    since you can access HBC you should follow modmii to update everything.

    Hi. Okay finally got round to having a proper look. Installed 222. This made no difference, but I did download priiloader 0.6 and what do you know it only worked !!! So the wii is now again booting to the wii menu from the off. Thank you so much everyone

    On the yourshape problem. No change there I'm afraid. It's still asking for a wii system update in the wii system menu even after installing the wads that have been mentioned.

    When I try to play it from the USB loader it begins to load but then gets to the heal and safety screen then comes back with a black screen with an about the USB cam.... So I'm still stuck here, but on the plus side thanks to all the people who took the time to reply, you saved my bacon. Cheers

    in priiloader (hold reset immediately after pressing the power button), you're gonna need to enable the block disc update hack....might as well enable block online updates, remove no copy save protection, replace healthscreen with backmenu, and region free everything as well....

    do you have a hacks_hash.ini file in the root of your SD card? ...you're gonna need that to get your hacks list.....

    once you enable the block disc update hack, you can play from the disc without the update prompt...

    ha....i totally ninja'd you OverjoY.... [​IMG]
