Since I have bootmii in boot2 and the ability to backup and restore, I decided to puts around today and attempt to streamline my process of hacking Wii consoles. Previously, I would use the standard method (bannerbomb) to get HBC on the system, Waninkoko's IOS downgrader to downgrade to Trucha IOSs, install cIOS, then update to 4.0 (waninkoko again) and patch IOS60. This method has worked fine for me and I have modded multiple consoles, but I never really liked the reliance I had to IOS downgrader and so on. Now that TBR has been released (great work Wiipower!) I figured that this is a great time for an attempt to make the whole process go much smoother. I can now basically stick everything I need on an SD card and mod someone's Wii without any internet access and get it up and running in literally minutes. So, of course I ran tests on my own system since I can restore in case something goes wrong. While I understand how to use TBR, how to install cIOS, and so on, I found the "Uber soft mod guide" link in one of the threads and it really seems to be a cut and dry simple guide. Something I can keep around should I someday forget what I am doing (hey, I'm getting old here!) So, I followed the guide to exactly and everything *seemed* to work out ok, until I tried to load some WBFS games. I first tried to load Castlevania Judgement, and got nothing...frozen screen. I have played this game multiple times, so I know it is something with either the guide or something. I also tried Wario Ware: Smooth moves and the game loaded fine. But upon exiting the game to get back to the Wii menu, black screen. Here is the portion of the guide I followed (omitting the whole bannerbomb/hbc process... that was already done): 9. Run Trucha Bug Restorer. ---9-1. Press B for no IOS reload. ---9-2. Choose downgrade IOS15. ---9-3. It'll do it's thing. ---9-4. Then press a button to exit. 10. Run Trucha Bug Restorer from homebrew channel. ---10-1. Choose IOS15 and press A. (Important) ---10-2. Wait till it says Press 1 then press it. ---10-3. Choose IOS36 menu. In there use these settings: ------10-3-1. Install IOS to slot (249) ------10-3-2. Hash check (trucha) YES ------10-3-3. ES_Identity YES ------10-3-4. Nand Permissions YES ---10-4. Then press A on install patched IOS36, let it do it's thing and exit when it's done. 11. Open wad manager in homebrew channel ---11-1. When it opens choose use IOS249 (it is probably already set to that) ---11-2. Press A to open from SD 12. Now install NEOR6.wad, IOS60.wad, and exit. 13. Open Trucha Bug Restorer from homebrew channel. ---13-1. Choose IOS249 and press A ---13-2. Wait till it says Press 1 then press it ---13-3. Then Choose restore IOS15. ---13-4. Let it do it's thing, exit when done. 14. Open Homebrew Channel and run the CIOSrev13-a installer ---14-1. Choose IOS249 and then WAD install and press A ---14-2. Let it run and when it's done you are done with the guide. 15. You may now wipe your SD Card and start using the Wii, have fun . Well, I didn;t have too much fun when I found games not working When I started, I restored the original NAND on the Wii (I keep multiple version NAND backups) which was 3.1U...vanilla and unhacked (other than HBC installed). I first used Nintendo's updater to update the machine to 4.1U before starting this entire "Uber" process. Could this have something to do with it? I am basically just trying to understand why games would act this way using this guide. I ended up restoring my "good" v4.1 NAND backup that I hacked using the old methods, and of course the games I had spoken of earlier (as well as all of the other games I have) work just fine. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
