    I don't know if this is the right thread so correct me if I need to move.

    Some games like Mario Kart Wii and Super Smash Bros. Brawl will get me a black screen when starting them from Disc Channel. However they start fine from USB Loader GX and from the Wiimmfi Disc Patching homebrew program. Other games though like Metroid: Other M and Lego Star Wars start fine directly from the Disc Channel. This is a problem from a long time ago, so I don't remember what I did wrong. But probably I messed up the IOSses of the vWii (pardon for my dumbness).
    Is there any way to fix this problem? Like with a NAND backup or other methods?

    Hello.:)

    First: I am not a vWii or WiiU "expert".I do not own a WiiU.

    But your Issue points me to the IOS36:

    Games needs this:
    • Super Smash Bros. Brawl
    • Mario Kart Wii
    • Castlevania Judgement
    I only know the version (v3864) you have to use in vWii Mode.
    Maybe you can only check of this is YOUR Version.:)

    I hope this helps you a little.

    Thank you.:)

    I'm kind of afraid of doing this though, will it be safe? Also, I just realized I lost my NAND backup, so this mean I could lose my vWii access forever if I did more careless modifying, and even if I created a new backup, it certainly would bring the broken IOS36 to it.
    Some trivial thing I discovered though: I got Mario Kart Wii CTGP-R yesterday and the game did start fine, I wonder what these channels and programs have to not have any problems with this.
    Also, Mario Kart Channel doesn't work through Wii Menu, must use the same IOS. Didn't test it on Loader GX yet though.
    Well, thanks for the advice anyway!

    No probs, though I'd like to know if formatting the vWii would replace the broken IOS with the correct one, then I would softmod it again but no messing with IOSses for no reason this time. No need to answer if you don't know :P.

    Hmmm... what I could guess is that formatting may not correct the IOS, so the vWii formatting would be completely in vain. Too bad that apparently there aren't any reports related to this specific issue I'm having...
    Also, it seems that you can't format the vWii without formatting the Wii U together? If that's so, then big oof. I guess I'm not doing anything by now, until a solution comes (if there's any). Hope some Wii U expert sees this and help me.

    NEVERMIND THAT I got a ios36 wad on the internet then used it with the IOS236 installer (vWii patch version) then installed the wad through YAMM and now everything is working fine again :lol::lol:
