    I've been searching all over the net for a solution to getting Dr. Mario to work. Originally I had 3.1U firmware and updated my system to 3.2U with WUM: http://wum.talevas.com/?page=dev

    I patched a custom iso of Guitar Hero III with the 3.2U_B firmware and updated my system with that, but unfortunately, it did not solve any of my problems. The Wii still resets every time I try to load Dr. Mario or FFC:MLAK.

    Has anybody else encountered the same problem? Help on this issue would be much appreciated.

    you need 3.2v2. that version includes the WiiWare update. if you have MKWii, you can run WUFE to extract the update wads off the disc then install them.

    Is there anyway to find the 3.2v2 wad files on the net? I'm pretty new to this, so I have no idea what to do once I do get those files. Please help.

    What would I do after I get those files? Put the wad files on the SD card and install with the homebrew channel? Sorry for being such a noob at this.

    Thanks so much! I really appreciate all the help. Btw, should I use Wakinkoko's WAD Manager 1.2 (The one he released 2 days ago) or v 1.1? http://wii.waninkoko.info/

    Unfortunately, I have no idea how to install it. I downloaded WAD Manager v 1.2 from http://wii.qj.net/WAD-Manager-v-1-2-with-W...g/49/aid/123480
    I put the .dol file in a new folder under the Apps section on my SD card and renamed it boot.dol. I click on this app (called /apps/wadmanger v 1.2) and it loads all the wad files in the WAD folder. Not sure if its the file that I downloaded or me installing it improperly but it causes an error when I try to scroll down the list:
    Exception (DSI) occurred!
    GPR00 0000000 GPR08 8004B18C GPR16 00000000 GPR24 800469D4
    ...
    8000e024--> 80016cbc--> 8002cc8c--> 8002cc28

    CODE DUMP:

    8000e24: 81230000 3C008080 60008080 3D69FEFF
    ...

    So then I try installing it with WAD Manager v 1.0 (the one that is pre-installed with homebrew channel), but it also gives me an error message:
    ...
    - Installing title ()... Error! (ret = -1035)
    [*] ERROR: WAD not installed! (ret = -1035)


    I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Please help.

    Tried removing USB devices and Gamecube devices but to no avail. WAD Manager 1.2 is still buggy, but 1.1 works fine. However, I still get that -1305 error. I tried loading Mario Kart Wii, but I don't get the update screen from it.

    Thanks for all your help. I'm just kicking myself for not updating my Wii to 3.2 before 3.3 came out. From what I've been reading, there currently are no games that contain update 3.2 v2. Hopefully the VUM list gets updated in the near future. I can only imagine that future WiiWare games will require version 3.2 to run.

    http://wum.talevas.com/inside.html

    From that list, it shows that the wad file extracted from Mario Kart Wii (RVL-WiiSystemmenu-v257.wad) is actually 3.1. Were you able to update to 3.2 with Mario Kart Wii, Sam?
