    Glad you were able to make it work! :) Could you tell us how you managed to fix it?

    I started by removing the wad from the nand using ShowMiiWads just in case. I then reinstalled it and put it on my usb. I got into UsbLoaderGX and selected the Nand source to the USB. I changed the Nand emulation to partial, the IOS to use global. I loaded in the game, and it weirdly took long time to load the "activate SD Card" screen. it disabled the SD, and when I loaded up the song selection screen everything was there! Every song (except Abbey Road) plays great, there's no glitch and it all runs perfectly on setilst or quick play!

    I loaded the NAND on the USB from an older NAND backup with the freshly installed DLC wad. I put the USBLoaderGX settings to
    "Nand Emulation : Partial
    Nand Path : usb:/1"

    The game also loaded from the USB, and every DLC song appeared! All the songs play great, except Abbey Road songs, which are stuck on the loading screen and don't play at all. But Rubber Soul and Sgt. Pepper load perfectly. All You Need Is Love works great too.

    UPDATE!
    :grog:I Just got the entire DLC + Abbey Road working on the Wii U! Stay tuned, I will be writing an easy thread tutorial and post the link in this comment soon!!!:grog:



    So hopefully this will help someone out, but mostly I'm hoping for some help myself. With all my attempts listed below, I can't load any DLC. I'm using a Wii U and vWii.

    Attempt 1 - Used TeconMoon vWii Injector to install Rock Band Beatles.

    Results - Playable game.

    Attempt 2 - Transferred the Rock Band .iso to a USB thumb drive (8gb) using Wii Backup Manager. Transferred the DLC .wad file to the same USB. Installed UStealth on the USB. Installed cIOS Beta43 on my vWii 249/250/251. Using USB Loader GX, I dumped my NAND to a EmuNAND on the same USB. Installed the DLC .wad using the Wad Manager in features. Set the Rock Band settings to partial. Set game loader to -1.

    Results Part 1 - Game did not boot. USB Loader GX booted to black screen.

    Results Part 2 - Game loaded after I switched thumb drive to back top USB port of the Wii U. No DLC loaded. SD card activated in Rock Band.

    Results Part 3 - Switched Game Loader to 250. Game booted, no DLC loaded. SD card activated in Rock Band.

    Results Part 4 - Switched Game Loader to 251. Game booted no DLC loaded. SD card activated in Rockband.

    Results Part 5 - Installed cIOS Beta 42 on 249/250/251. Game Loaded in all three loadouts, all of them forced disabled SD Card features in Rock Band. No DLC loaded.

    Attempt 3 - Deleted USB NAND. Dumped NAND to EmuNand on SD Card. Installed DLC .wad on SD card. Installed cIOS Beta43 on 249/250/251.

    Results 1 - Game Loaded on all three loadouts. SD card was enabled on all three in Rock Band. No DLC loaded.

    Results 2 - Switched Emu to "Full" and repeated all three loadouts, failed to load any DLC.

    Attempt 4 - Downloaded a .wbfs of Rock Band Beatles (NA/USA/NTSC) and replaced the other game file. Repeated all three loadouts on EmuNAND and DLC still on SD card.

    Results - Game Booted fine in all three, SD Card enabled (Most likely Beta43), no DLC loaded.

    Attempt 5 - Used ShowMiiWads/ShowMiiNAND version 1.4 on PC. Deleted EmuNAND DLC file and re-extracted it using ShowMiiWads to the EmuNAND.

    Results - Game Booted fine in all three, SD Card enabled, no DLC loaded.

    Attempt 6 - Deleted NAND manually and re-Dumped NAND to EmuNAND in a new directory on USB Loader GX to USB thumb drive. Re-installed DLC .wad to that new EmuNAND directory (Changed Locations in USB Loader's Settings). Turned on Emu Save Simulation to "Full". Changed Rock Band configuration settings to "Partial", Exported save file to EmuNAND, forced video mode to "NTSC", turned on SNEEK Video Mode. Kept the cIOS at Beta43, left the game loader to default "-1".

    Results - Game Booted fine, SD Card enabled, no DLC loaded.

    Honestly, I'm stuck and don't know what to do. I've watched both the Dolphin Video mentioned in this forum and this other video in spanish I'll post below. I've scoured the forums for answers, read every YouTube comment, I'm lost at this point.

    The only fix I see people talking about is in a YouTube comment thread where a Mitchell Watson posted his NAND files on a Google drive. Apparently his files worked wonderfully and even allowed many people to load up the Abby Road DLC. However, he has deleted his NAND download and it's most likely lost forever.

    If anyone else has a working EmuNAND for this DLC, could you please upload the folder/files from your SD or USB...

    Here's the Spanish video:



    UPDATE: Wow, I really wish I spoke spanish, i found a NAND upload that apparently works with Abbey Road. When I get home from work I will load it up and try it out on a SD EmuNand first and then a USB EmuNAND second. I'll probably do way more testing but I'm hoping this is what I needed. Owner of the NAND file said to place the Game Configuration into "Full" because "Partial" does not load all the songs with this NAND. Wish me luck...

    Also, I might try the PAL region if the above doesn't work. Here is the Beatles DLC (PAL) downloads.

    https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/mobile/folders/1FaC8Bt3t_scWUfwlMtEYdZt86_l3SX3y

    Conversation translated from Spanish to English, this is probably the NAND everyone is looking for:

    UPDATE: Installed the Download NAND on my USB, transferred Beatles Rockband on the USB using Wii Backup Manager. Tried both cIOS Beta52 and Beta53 in both Partial and Full emulation. Game Loaded fine, SD card enabled on all tries, still No DLC. Going to try the NAND on the USB now.

    UPDATE!

    Thanks, NewkTV! This is just what I'm looking for ... I'm having a problem; I downloaded everything, and I used a new SD and new USB, as suggested, but, when I launch Homebrew from vWii, all I get are bubbles, I'm not seeing any of the apps to run. My old SD card works fine when I put it back in and it will show the installed apps in the vWii Homebrew ... thoughts?

    install rockband, then the dlc wads. you may need full emulation if you use emunand. iirc, partial means only saves, but full will use content as well. I do remember dlc being a little tricky on the virtual wii. I got it to work with wiiware, but I'm not entirely sure with a retail game and dlc,

    Examining this thread, it looks like NewkTV's "work" was actually someone else's doing. However, the results between "Partial" and "Full" emulation is a clue as to how Abbey Road DLC is not loaded and loaded, respectfully.

    I'm referring to this post here:
    Apparently, some Hispanic dude got it working and uploaded his NAND for everyone else to use, and NewkTV copied it from him. Thus, this NAND that he was sharing is not really his NAND.

    I'm still trying to figure out how Abbey Road DLC works, and whether I can post an easy, warez-free tutorial of my own. My own guide will not be hosting the pirated WBFS, for sure, but it may have a small part of the NAND included, depending on what is required. If I can provide instructions without any NAND files, this would be best, but I have yet to fully examine NewkTV's work.

    it might be full, but I can't remember. I'm about 80% partial refers to saves only. I had some difficulty getting dlc to work on the wii u, but I think something like that or similar was how I did it. this is general dlc (tested with mega man 9 and 10). you can test in the game by itself in game settings. it can use global, partial, full, or none. global is the default setting you've created in usb loader gx. I recommend just doing that one game with full to see if it even works instead of having all games do that. I'm playing the wii u right now, but my hdd for the virtual wii is off atm, and I'm playing 3d world, so I'm not in the virtual wii either to check what I've put for global or if I changed mega man 9 and 10 directly. emulation can be important, because there are booting problems with skyward sword unless emulation is off.

    I didn't realize this, but in system settings save emulation and channel emulation are separate settings. I have them both set up as partial:

    sorry about triple posting, but I think I may know what the difference is between partial and none. I think partial may be using emunand, which both mega man games and dlc are on. none may refer to official nand. however, I don't understand the difference between full and neek. I have a second nand on the wii u for neek games, and I've set their emunand path in game settings for just those two games. everything else is installed to my main emunand with partial nand channel emulation. everything is using emunand for saves, so if you were to say try to back up your save using the normal sd card method (the official way), the save would not appear since it's in emunand. you have to disable it to get saves to appear there. that's why saves are different between my two vc injects and the ones in usb loader gx. anyway, dlc works. I know it was wasn't working before, and I think that's the change I made. nand emulation = partial if using emunand; none if using official nand. if it doesn't work, create an emunand in features and try to inject the wad there (also in features).

    I already know about emuNAND emulation via USB Loader GX. What I don't know is how the Abbey Road DLC is able to work unofficially. I know that in emulation settings:
    • None means no emuNAND emulation is applied (using real NAND).
    • Partial means that some parts of the emuNAND are used (saves, mainly), while the rest come from real NAND.
    • Full means the entire emuNAND is used, with missing components being supplied by the real NAND.
    • Neek means that emuNAND emulation is supplied by NEEK (probably something like UNEEK or SNEEK) instead of directly through USB Loader GX.

    I think that the reason partial emulation doesn't work is because DLC is not fully loaded from the emuNAND, while full emulation loads all the DLC in the emuNAND. The Abbey Road fix should be applied to BINs on the SD card as well, but I don't know how to work it in, yet. My guess is that once it can be verified working as APPs, then it will be able to work as BINs, but both require unique methods to be built properly.

    I don't appear to have rock band dlc. I downloaded a huge assortment of dlc and games in a wiiware collection from iso before they closed. it has every region for most stuff. I have guitar hero 5 and world tour but no rock band or I'd try it.

    abbey road - a damn fine album. two of Harrison's best on there with "Something" and "Here comes the Sun." I know he was only allowed one or two tracks per album, but those are arguably the best tracks on there.

    Ironically, I'm not much of a Beatles fan, really. I do like Ringo Starr's, and some of Paul McCartney's, songs after the Beatles' break up, but I just never got totally immersed in Beatle-mania. I think "Jude" was their best song, IMO.

    Still, it would be pretty cool to get this DLC working. I'd rather work on it than Green Day! Also, there's more DLC to work with - GD:RB has a total of six songs, tops.

    iirc, Ringo Starr 's band is called Ringo Starr and his all star band and made up of well known musicians. McCartney still does the beatles, wings, and solo stuff with his own band. I'm not real familiar with those band members. interesting fact is that last time I checked, I think Michael Jackson owns or at least owned the beatles music. he outbid McCartney for it. I know they were friends, but I don't know about after that.

    I dunno what could be wrong. is it only that dlc with rock band? maybe some sort of anti-piracy crap?
