    A while ago i made a thread to help me run super mario bros wii after i upgraded to 4.2. I was using a wiikey2. In the end i go it to work and other games too but by doing Gecko OS. In the process i think i deleted a IOS that alows me to play games through the disc channel. Can someone help me out?

    The disc channel doesn't use a specific IOS, rather the one that the disc asks for. So chances are you installed a preloader hack of some kind that messed with your disc channel. This all assuming you're talking about legit games anyway.

    You need to (re)install cIOScorp to launch backups from teh disc channel

    Wii Fit Plus won't load either due to it asking for an update just to let you know. I just use Gecko OS...

    Since you have a wiikey2, you don't need cIOSCORP.

    So:
    Are you trying to play originals or burned games?
    If burned, how old are the discs?
    Are they in good condition?
    Does the game blackscreen, or does the System Menu refuse to display them in the dsic channel?
    Are you trying to play imports?
    Do you have preloader or StartPatch installed?

    System Menu 4.2 kills region free for all modchips.
