    This is a serious WTF, I have had the wiigator backup channel installed since he released it and it was rereleased as a .wad.


    I then recieved the waninkoko app later in a .zip by a forum member who posted it as a bundle.


    both have been working for as long as the software has been out, but now today for whatever reason neither want to load, at all.
    has anyone confronted any incompatibilities with homebrew apps that may cause the loader to 'go bad' or has nintendo launched a sneak attack against me somehow....

    the only other software I can think of that I have used since the last time i used the loader was Geexbox. v.1alpha2

    thanks for any advice in advanced, hopefully this can be addressed if there is an incompatibility with other homebrew and I hope this helps anyone in the same boat as i am.

    UPDATE:

    the homebrew channel is also showing in the upper left corner 'network not initialized'
    the loader channel has a lit up green gecko icon in the lower left corner, i am almost certain it used to grey.

    I have yet to click the youtube link... however i 'fixed' the situation

    I unplugged the wii power cord for a few seconds and then after that the ip came back online and I was able to run homebrew again, includingthe loader.....

    also, what does the color of the gecko icon signify in the loader? it has returned to gray....


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Out of curiosity I clicked the link just now, and wow that was a really assy move. I didnt get pissed or anything because I had temporarily resolved the issue.... but considering there was no real help posted prior to your post, that definitely showed the lack of comradery you have toward fellow wii enthusiasts.

    I had searched for answers prior to posting this and even consulted the chat, to no avail.

    Although I have resolved this issue for the time being, has anyone else experienced this and is there a certain cause to lock up the loader as well as other homebrew apps? And is pulling the power for a short ammount of time the only fix at the moment?

    The color means that usb gecko is inserted, gray means it can't find it or it is not inserted. What are the details or your wii. 3.3U etc.

    last update was through mario kart wii

    upped to 3.3U

    I have recently installed a few homebrew apps, I did a small wave and Id have to check to see what if any of them i can recall, as i delteted ones i didnt like. one that is still on for whatever reason is the map maker. I will look up any others in a moment.

    As i said the loader has worked before but it was only today that it failed to load and the ip was not initializing.

    since I didnt have a usb gecko installed, any idea why it went green durring the wigout?



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Recently installed homebrew

    Map maker
    mplayer update (not certain)
    MFE
    WiiMPC
    WiiEngine

    thats all i can think of at the moment, if i mised something i deleted it and forgot about it.


    ***on a side note i learned not to delete from FTPii .... my usb drive deleted the files yet teh space taken up bythose files was not freed. I ened up having to reformat the USB.
