Picture of Run Backups on any Wii Without a Modchip
Welcome to my instructable on how to run backed up Wii games without a Modchip.

All who get "DVD Read Error (324)" go to step 5

How It works:: Well the Wii System Menu currently runs on IOS30 (for all those who understand IOS). Homebrew runs on IOS35, and basically what you are going to do today is to install a Custom IOS36 into IOS249 (Won't effect your wii)

This is a Sequel to this guide here.

NOTE: Only follow this guide if you own a copy of the game. My copy of Super Mario Sluggers got stepped on so i got it from a bay of pirates, which, again, is perfectly legal if you own the game. If you get a game without owning it first it is called PIRACY and is ILLEGAL. I am not responsible for your Illegal actions and hold NO LIABILITY.

Okay, lets begin.

You need:

Homebrew Channel
SD Card
Computer With DVD-R Burner
DVD-Rs (The higher quality the better)
Wii (Duh)

Step 1: Getting the Files

Get the Files

1. Get all of the files here

2. Copy the CONTENTS of the folder Copy the CONTENTS to ROOT to the ROOT of the SD Card

3. There is an ImgBurn Installer there if you want it

Error -2011 means you dont have the trucha bug on your wii and that you need to downgrade ios15 and install a patched ios36 then you should be just fine
My 4.2 Wii failed at this step too. Apparently you have to DOP Mii it and configure some IOSs before you run cIOS. I forgot how I found this link, but it sure helped me xD


There's more than the DOPmii thing on there and it's all pretty useful information - I bookmarked it, but I only needed that page to follow the rest of this guide. Anyway, I am running burned discs on my 4.2U Wii and my shop channel works fine. YOU DON'T HAVE TO DOWNGRADE :D
same problem :(
Did you find an anwser  to this?
I have that error as well.
I have this same problem... Please help.

Can i use the same card with homebrew installer on it?
Can this just be within the homebrew channel, or does it have to be an independent channel(can I launch it from the homebrew channel if I want without installing it directly to the menu)?

help can i use dvd+RW too?
Yepp! DVD+RW works on wii. Just burn it on 1x on imgburn. I did burn it on 4x once and the movies in the game did play really slow. 1x will play movies faster, try it out! I have a likely disk as the picture shows but DVD+RW instead.
Maxwell DVD+R works fine with Wii, serial lu70
so this guide and ta youtube instructional helped very me very much to work this hack.

Hello everyone,

I'm new here and also new to Wii.

I followed the instructions and copied the files to SD but I cannot get the Homebrew running.

I'm using Wii V3.4E and the message I receive when trying to add a channel from SD is that the SD does not have a proper device.

Appreciate your help.... Also, can someone put the files on another shared site like 4Shared?
