OK I’ve been trying to soft mod my wii since last night (actually got it to work once) and have wasted quite a few hours trying. I have given up at the moment and need your help, I’ll just get to it: This is the guide I have been following: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html Copied and paste from a different thread: Had problems installing cIOS Rev14: "Figured it out, I had to download the app called any title deleter and delete IOS249 apparently "error -1035 is caused by trying to install an older version of whatever you're installing, in this case IOS249." See I actually got the game to work played around for 10 minutes saved my game and thought the hard part is over now, powered off my wii. Today morning before starting up the wii to play NSMB, I remembered I had 2 different versions of NSMB game installed on my hard drive and thought I’ll delete 1 copy and also add Mario Tennis on there too. Once I did that I started up the USB loader and and ran NSMB I got a blank screen (I can’t power off my wii either) so I have too unplug it, I attempted around 5 times to play the game with no luck, I decided to install cIOS Rev14 again but that did not solve nothing either. Things got worse now: The USB loader program doesn’t want to detect my hard drive, tried several times and each time it fails to detect it. I decided to restart the whole softmod process again: I remembered I made a nand backup as advised on the guide I followed. After I done restoring my wii: USB loader recognized my hard drive but when I try to play any game I get that dreaded blank screen, I then remembered I had yet to install cIOS Rev14 I used ios249 to install and when that did not work I tried IOS36 still no luck I.e. blank screen. Everytime I try run a game via USBloader I get a blank screen and the only way to turn of my wii is to unplug it from the mains which if I keep doing it might effect my hard drive? My wii firmware was 4.0E I upgraded to 4.1E using the guide, can some kind individual please tell me what I’m doing wrong?
