    So i'm on 4.0 now and wad manager still installs the virtual console games, but any time I try and play one I get the " this channel cannot be played " message.

    Is there a way for me to get back the ability to play installed wads without losing the SD card menu from 4.0?

    everything else on 4.0 seems to be fine.

    I have a similar question for anyone that has already updated.
    Using 4.0 can you still play the WAD's you installed using 3.2?
    mainly asking because I enjoy playing Earthbound on the Wii [​IMG]


    EDIT:

    aw crap [​IMG] o well, i'll stick with good old 3.2

    EDIT 2:

    Forgot to ask, did you update via Waninkoko's installer or the wii update itself?

    I installed the patched 60, tried to install 4.0 from connection test. Thing got an error corrupting my system menu. It booted back in recovery mode from softmii and then i reinstalled 4.0 with waninkoko's 4.0 updater from the homebrew channel.

    Well, i went and installed softmii again and got Everything back to 3.2 how it use to be. Funny thing is, it's even BETTER now than when I started. Before my madworld backup wouldn't boot from the disc channel but I guess 4.0 installed the missing IOS files I needed .

    Everything worked out in the end for me after all [​IMG]

    I installed 4.0 using Waninkoko's Firmware Updater 4.0, and all my installed channels stayed where they were!
