    Hello all,

    I’m running into an issue I’ve never seen before with trying to soft mod a Wii. So far I’ve install HBC v1.1.0 and BootMii (as an IOS only) via the LetterBomb exploit. I then installed IOS236 via the “IOS236 Installer v5 MOD”. I moved onto installing the Priiloader 236 Mod and here is where the weirdness sets in. The Wii Remote doesn’t respond. If I press enough of the buttons sometimes the sync lights at the bottom will just blink. This is in fact the case for any app that I launch under HBC. Ultimately I have to turn the Wii off as there is no way to back out whatever it is that I might be running.

    Notice I didn’t mention that I made a backup of the NAND with BootMii before installing IOS236 :( That would be because I was greedy and stupid…but I digress….

    So here is what I have. A Wii with HBC v1.1.0 (running under IOS58 v25.32), BootMii and ISO236, with no way to use the Wii Remote if I should launch anything in HBC.

    I thought I would be clever and use the LetterBomb exploit to launch me into Multi-Mod Manager so I could try and drive in the other IOS, but alas, my cleverness was not so clever (i.e. I had the same problem).

    Now, I WAS able to get Syscheck to work, but that’s only because if you leave it on the main screen long enough it will automatically run. So below is the log from that. You can clearly see it’s still pretty much a virgin Wii.

    I’m stumped. Anyone had this issue before or any advice?

    Thank you in advance

    sounds like the problem with the revised wimote plus
    search the forum for details

    support for those is new


    but last time i heared the bundled wiimote+ still were the old model
    if you have more than one, try them all

    failing that you will have to wait for every single app to be updated (chances might be bad for some)
    or buy an old one
