    First question.

    If i update the Wii's firmware from the system. Does it lock
    up homebrew if im on a softmodded 4.1u and have the homebrew
    channel and all that?


    2nd question.

    when playing a game on USBLoaderGX. then going to system
    menu and picking out another game from the HDD. The entire
    Wii freezes.... why does it do that?

    1. It will wipe cIOS, the Homebrew Channel if you have the old version, and bootmii from your Wii.
    2. Many games do that. In my experience it's benn generally happening with PAL games, but it happens with some NTSC games too.

    thanks guys.

    1.

    ok ok i guess i'll always have to search out the hack firmwares then which can be a pain
    in the a$$. the main thing i had wanted was being able to get into the wii store.

    2.

    haha this one is funny. i was able to snag cios installer rev 19 from somewhere using google.
    the funny part is now my wii doesn't detect any usb devices at all! awesome!

    ok ok i'm not blaming anyone for this. its just abit unexpected. we are all taking risks when
    we're using unlicensed software here. so still thanks... for all i know my hdd might only need to
    be reformatted and the new cios might actually fix the system from freezing upon entering a
    new game.


    i'll reformat my external now and see if it works, wish me luck.

    1. I think that if you update the shop channel with dop mii you can acess it. That is what I did because I am on 4.1u and it wanted me to go to 4.2u.

    this time. yay! buuuuuut... as soon as you click on the game. freeze.. system

    big let down....

    its back to not detecting the external... it only made it once through and the entire system
    froze..

    this is the only external hdd i have atm and i mean it works on my pc. detects
    and everything. im able to partition it. so i dont think the external is the issue.

    im stuck... i think it has something to do with rev 19.. but really its anyones guess at
    this point.

    i don't know what else to do..

    cool thanks it worked.

    all i need to figure out now is how to make the hdd work.
    i found another laptop hdd to switch out on my external and
    i get the same thing. it has do with something with cios......

    i'll try reinstalling older cios and see what happens...

    ah one last thing. when i was updating the cios on dop mii before i left out that my homebrew channel is now upside down..

    thanks to gogetas and his hermes v4 suggestion i have my games working off my hdd again. can someone help out with
    the upside down homebrew thing? this most likely will be the last thing i'll ask for help on this thread.

    cIOSrev19 requires newer versions of USB loaders to run.

    yeah the hermes v4 and uloader works great except some pal games
    like resident evil remake wouldn't load but i cant complain. at least the
    majority is working again.

    now the thing im trying to fix is getting my homebrew channel rightside
    up.... i dunno why or what cios would cause that.. i didn't see any disclaimer
    on any of the updates that say it would have that effect... so im very lost
    on why that happened.

    i've downloaded NUSD. checked the ios my homebrew channel is
    using which is IOS61 v21.29. this is what i get when i start NUS and
    try to pack it into a wad.

    " --- IOS61 ---
    Starting NUS Download. Please be patient!
    Grabbing tmd.21.29...
    Download Failed: tmd.21.29
    - Reason: (401) Unauthorized."
