    I posted this in my other thread - but felt it better here.

    So I got this niggle and can't work out why.

    Installed a few VC games with Wadmanager on the Wii, and then transferred them to the SD Card.

    I can copy them back to the Wii, or launch them from the SD card fine.

    Except 2 (so far)
    When I initially installed these 2 - they play fine
    I can copy them to the SD card, and that's where they fail to launch, I also can't move them back to the Wii again.

    Any ideas? [​IMG]

    Is your System Menu IOS trucha bugged? You need it in order to play pirated VC games from SD card.

    Well I can play all but those 2 (for now) from SD

    I did the Trucha Bug thing after I installed the HBC channel:

    from the below thread
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171901

    To be honest I don't know what that last line meant

    Choose IOS36 to start a stub removal process

    So all I did was press A continually until it seemed done.

    Could it be those 2 wads are signed differently?

    If so how can I tell?

    Not IOS 36. The IOS your System Menu uses needs the bug.

    3.X: IOS 30
    4.0-4.1: IOS 60
    4.2: IOS 70.

    IOS70-64-v6687[TB+ES_diV+NAND].wad this, if you want to play your games from the SD menu, but you should install bootmii to boot2 if you can. It's stupid not to..

    If these are large games then perhaps your system memory is too full for the games to be copied over to your nand, check the number of blocks in the games and the number of free blocks on your wii.

    buddy, don't be stupid!!!! u skipped installing bootmii!!! that's like sleeping with a hooker without using a condom... both things run the risk of breaking your tool! lol

    seriously, bootmii as boot2 is the ultimate brick protection

    second best protection is bootmii as ios combined with priiloader (see my signature for all priiloader related downloads)

    impossible, because you can "overinstall" wads to your system memory even if its full, but once u return to the system menu it will force you to delete some channels until you have a least 1 block of free space. So having a full sys memory would not stop some1 from installing wads

    Bad blocks are normal. Don't worry about it, unless you end up with more than about 20.

    Verifying backup (not skipping)
    6 bad blocks in total

    So Nand is backed up and I've installed that IOS70-64-v6687[TB+ES_diV+NAND].wad

    Do I need to use BootMii from now, or only in emergency?

    I could not play some of the games from my SD card when there were not enough free blocks left on the Wii memory. Was getting the error msg to say that. You could always try it if you are an unbeliever.
    Also the OP was talking about playing wads from SD not installing wads.

    I'm a little stuck with finding an up-to-date VC injection method, as it seems the old methods no longer work and the resulting output.wad is 246 kb.

    Has the whole era VC injecting and banner creation etc. died?

    I have tried HowardC's tools (keeps giving me a 'filesize is different error' with injecting).

    Also tried the VERY first method (which started it all).

    Out of curiosity - will I be able to do the above on a Black Wii?

    I want to get a black wii

    I am not interested in playing disc backups -- just homebrew, vc/wiiware/emulation.
