Ok, Wii on 4.2. Softmodded ages ago with Edoggs and others guides. However, bought a USB HDD to run the games, so today went to install the USB loaders etc via the tuts posted here. (Dogtoffee and Bally IIRC?) Anyway, soon as I open Wad Manager 1.5 press A to continue my Wiimote shuts off and I have to power down the Wii to get working again. If I try to enter BootMii in HB, again everything locks up, and I'm left with a black screen and a power down is needed again. Any ideas on

    Homebrew, BootMii and Wad Manager problems. 4.2 softmod

    Ok, Wii on 4.2. Softmodded ages ago with Edoggs and others guides.

    However, bought a USB HDD to run the games, so today went to install the USB loaders etc via the tuts posted here. (Dogtoffee and Bally IIRC?)

    Anyway, soon as I open Wad Manager 1.5 press A to continue my Wiimote shuts off and I have to power down the Wii to get working again.

    If I try to enter BootMii in HB, again everything locks up, and I'm left with a black screen and a power down is needed again.

    Any ideas on how I solve this please? PreLoader/PriiLoader installed. (IOS only, though do have the NAND/Bin backups)

    Only thing I've done since doing the HB a while ago, is installed a solderless DriveKey. (Can't be that, surely?)


    Ban sigs. They're shite.

    ^ This.

    sounds like nothing is wrong with your softmod
    Full Brick Wii Unbricking Service, PM for details. You must have a Nand backup if bootmii as IOS. If bootmii was installable as boot2 no backup is needed.

    Thanks guys for the replies.

    Can somebody point me to an alternative Wad Manager please?

    Also, yes, my mistake re Bootmii. I removed it when I backed up the NAND etc and forgot to put it back! Does it just go back into the root of the SD card?
