I'm not sure if people still work on this stuff, but i used vWii (I believe that is the name for the wii menu within the wii u yes?) to install homebrew on. I tried installing this because most of my wii discs are scratched, but for some reason can still be read by my computer.

However, when trying the installation I get error -1017 or something like that, mentioning something about a downgrade. Can somebody help me with this, perhaps?

I swear I had done all that, but I did it again (except for installing IOS58, since I'd already updated to ver. 4.3). I then went back & repeated a bunch of other things, including setting USBLoader to use IOS248 instead of IOS224-mload. That also allowed my games to actually load, as USBLoader was previously useless.

Well i dont know how many times i've tried installing the softmods and it Always fails at the same Point.
Letterbomb: Check.
d2x: Fail. Says there is a stub in 249 and it consistently freeze the wii when trying to overwrite that stub.
I can load up other stuff like usb loaders but it will not start any games just switch back to HBC.
Can the wii be bricked?

How the hell do you recompile it? I'm relatively new to wii modding, and I have the exact same issue.

So, I don't really now if this place is still alive and im not sure if it has been mentioned before but I have a problem I could't find posted so here it goes:

When I attempt to install IOS236 it loads to the first screen (where it asks to press 1 or start) but before I can do anything my wiimote turns of, if I try to turn it back on it just won't recognize it (the led lights on it just keep on flashing) I am not sure what to make out of this, Not even sure it's a problem with the installation.

Any help is apreciated

HELP HELP HELP by Joey FrankenJoey Franken, 30 Sep 2015 21:12

UPDATE: Working directly with DacoTaco on this one. Will update with resolution once we have it.

In short, after following all of the directions on this site cfg usb loader works great and I have no issues backing up/playing games from a usb HDD. Since we only use the Wii for games, and we no longer need to use the actual discs, I wanted to have the Wii boot directly to cfg. I installed priiloader for this and it works great, except that it seems to not use the edited meta.xml file to use ios 248. With priiloader configured to autoboot to an installed file (which is cfg), it throws the 249 is a stub error. If I use HBC to launch cfg, it has no issues. I have tried Google to find a resolution, but no luck thus far.

Wondering if anyone else has tried this, run into issues, and if they were able to resolve it.

Thanks in advance!

You'll need to format it to fat32, that works best. NTFS is iffy.

Thanks man, I was clenching so hard.

in discussion Discussion / Per page discussions » Homebrew Channel Does Not Recognize ANY SD cards

I am having a similar problem. I downloaded Homebrew on my Wii, and created a folder on an empty SD card (formatted to FAT32). I placed the savegame extractor and installer in it and plugged the SD card into my Wii. Once I opened homebrew there was nothing, just the bubble screen. I have tried this on several SD cards with do different results. This is my first time using Homebrew, and any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just for fun i decide to see what your anti-piracy thing was. I like how you guys work. :)

Hi, I am trying to run Xenoblade Chronicles through USB.
I have a FAT32 hard drive that I have successfully used for another game. I followed the instructions here, so d2x in 248.
Tried both Configurable USB Loader and USB Loader GX.
I have a Mac so I've used "wit" to copy the game to the hard drive (wit-gui at first, then tried wit on the command line).

Nothing worked so far. Has anyone been able to run Xenoblade Chronicles using a hard drive?

Hi, I have been able to play Mario Galaxy (I've only tried two games so far) from my hard drive using Configurable USB Loader, and I am using only one partition.
I followed the steps on the website and I have a FAT32 partition with a folder named "usb-loader" (config files?) and another folder named "wbfs" (games), and it works.

Currently I have a working system with Configurable USB Loader and am able to play my games from the external HDD. The HDD has two fat32 partitions. One for configuration files and the other for game files. I only have a handfull of games and would like move them to a thumbdrive. The problem is that a thumbdrive cannot have two partitions on it. Linux lets you do it but windows and the Wii do not recognize the second partition.
How do people use thumbdrives for configurable USB loader? Do they use the thumbdrive in-conjunction with an SD card (config files)? Is it possible to have the config files and game files on the same partition? If so what settings do I need to change?

Thanks for any help.


As from thread title I need some help because I recently bought used wii and I'm new to gaming consoles.

When I got it I connected it to wifi and I tried to update everything (normal thing for me). I successfully connected to internet but I got error 32004. I was browsing on internet and I found out that I have hacked wii. If I hold reset button while power on I got white screen where it says IOS v60, Systemmenu v450, priiloader v0.3b (r48M).

I now wont to update to newest unlocked firmware.

Can you guys please help me with that. There are many things written around it but since I have already unlocked wii I'm quite afraid to do it because I don't want to brick it.

New to Wii and want to upgrade by LEDuserLEDuser, 03 Jan 2015 21:31

I have installed most programs in the guide presented on this site up to the step with the USB-loader (and some more programs in later steps, but I think that might be irrelevant). Also, I am using wii backup manager and not this GParted thing. I have been playing games from the USB loader and a hard drive for quite a while without any problems. Today I was playing no more heroes 2, and after a battle a loading screen appeared. This screen was on for maybe 50 seconds, and I decided to restart my wii since nothing was happening. However, nothing happened while doing that either so I switched it off.

I then turned it on again and tried to use my USB loader. It seemed it couldn't find my hard drive and the timer went out. I plugged the hard drive into my computer to see if it could be read. At first it loaded a lot and was very slow. Then, after a few minutes, the speed suddenly seemed to be normal. I plugged it out and in again, and the speed seemed to be normal. However, it took a lot of time for wiibackup manager to load the hard drive before the content could be viewed. I plugged my hard drive into the wii again.

Now, I can use my USB loader to get to the screen with all my games. The weird thing is that all games appear together with the channels normally present only at the wii menu, like miichannel and previously downloaded games. When I try to play a game from the hard drive, the screen just blackens and nothing happens after I have clicked (play). Other than this, the wii works normally and I can play the games I have previously payed for and so on. I am curious to know if someone else have encountered the problem and knows what is going on and what is best for me to do? To me at seems like there's something weird with the hard drive I am loading my games from, and I hope there's nothing wrong with the programs or the wii software.

I tried that mete.xml, when I loaded it up to install it on my wii, an error came up that said something like that it could not find 248iso or there was not one.

Long story short, I have a Japanese Wii, an American Wii, and Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance in Japanese.
Japanese Path of Radiance disc broke two years ago. A friend in Japan backed up his copy and sent it to me.
I never used it, but now my Japanese Wii is biting the dust pretty badly, too, and I want to play it.
I could maybe softmod the Japanese Wii, but I'm scared to touch it right now for fear of it truly breaking down for good.
My American Wii still works perfectly fine, and I was able to get as far as putting Homebrew Channel on it last night, but that's it.
…Is there a possible way to get through the region block AND allow for a backup of a Gamecube game to be played on a Wii?

Looking around, this seems impossible, but I really want to play the game again (it's my favorite GC game), and I'm not forking out $150 for the game and who knows how much for another Japanese Wii online, plus expensive shipping. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
