    What option did you choose in Freethewads? Sometimes when I've chosen the region free option they don't think, whereas if I actually pick my region they work fine. Give that a shot.

    What WAD is it you're trying to run? You have any soft mods on your Wii like Riiski or any region hacks like Starfall?

    For obvious reasons such as brick safety (Especially when installing Wads) I highly suggest you downgrade to 3.2 and install Starfall by following one of the numerous guides on this site.

    If you are also interested in playing backup games through your disk channel then you should definitely hook up Riiski 2.0 that's located in it's respective thread.

    As far as I'm aware, both of these solutions will allow you to use any region .Wads so then you won't even have to bother with Freethewads.

    Hope this helps.

    black screen = No matter what you do, it wouldn't load.

    IT's usually due to WADs with different regions. So, get your region-specific WAD next time
