    This is because you have updated your wii since October 23rd, right now it is not bypassable.

    So do you have any ideas on how to restore what the DVDX installer tried to do? I know that Homebrew Channel has DVDX properties built in, but I do not know how to tap into that.

    I'm having the same issue (error 2011). I'm on 4.3e _with_ recent d2x cISO installed, still no success. I've read that there is something with a "truncha" bug that needs to be exploited in order for this to work.

    My wii is sooooooo annoying. I try to install the dvdlib, but it says ERROR 2011 and doesn't install. I have tried every option possible. I can't play dvds either. The wii hums about, but then it freezes and I have to hold the Power button to restart the wii. Help

    You can take a hard drive, partition it so that one partition is formatted to WBFS to play wii backups on usb loader, and another partition is formatted to FAT 32. Install http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Mplayer_ce on your Wii, and put all your video files that are compatible with Mplayer CE into the hard drive's FAT 32 partition. Launch Mplayer CE from the Homebrew channel, and choose which video you want to play. This doesn't always work since the Wii is so underpowered, some video files might lose audio sync, or freeze up.
