November 11, 2011 03:26PM
I really need help with this :(.
I have wii version 4.3U and I use a sandisk 2gb sd card. I have homebrew channel.
What I have on my sandisk:Folders; apps, codes+private<-for smash plus, snes9xgx, wii 64, wiiload. Files: boot.elf, and bootmini.elf. Text: gameconfig. in my apps folder ? I have homebrew channel, Gecko, mplayer_ce, riivolution, snes9xgx and wii 64.

Anyways I've been downloading gecko versions 19, 1.9.1, 192 and And I know its recommended that wii 4.3U goes with but it does not work=/) and none of them seem to work I take the Gecko file from the HBC file and put it in my apps file of my sd card. but when i turn on my wii, load the channel all I get is a blank black screen and my wii remote gets disconnected... This looks so simple, I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Help please : (?

I'll love you forever T_T.

If you just saw a wall of text, here is a simpler version you'll want to read.

I try to load Gecko on my homebrew channel and all I get is a black screen and my wii remote disconnects.
(i've followed tutorials, yet it still does not work.)

This is because recent versions of Gecko OS try to load IOS249 (which is commonly used as a slot for piracy related "cIOS", some functions of which can be useful for Gecko OS) and in the latest system software update IOS249 was "stubbed" (Nintendo installed a "dummy" IOS which doesn't work, to remove the piracy cIOS).

To get Gecko OS to work, you need to remove the cIOS stub - this is quite simple: Get DOP-Mii:WiiBrew Edition from WiiBrew and use it to delete IOS249. This should make Gecko OS work. However, be very careful when using DOP-Mii - make sure you don't remove anything other than IOS249 or you could break your Wii. Also don't install anything - basically just avoid everything about IOS249.
