    I have Wii Dumper v1.2 in my apps folder and when I run the program the tv screen turns black. This also does this for my wihttpd, as well as when I run my wad manager program. It's been a while since i've messed with the wii so I'm not sure what is going on. Can someone tell me why I'm getting this black screen? My emulators run fine. Could there be something to do with my CIOS? My version reads 3.4u but I remember having to downgrade the CIOS once about a 1.5yrs ago. Can someone tell me how to check the CIOS and tell me what CIOS I should be running. Thanks

    To check your cios's you need syscheck.

    But ideally just update your wii, get modmii, run it on a pc and answer the questions and it will download everything you need to upgrade your cios's etc.

    Most usb loaders have their own dumper as part of the program (GX, CFG, WiiFlow) also a HDD partition can now be wbfs, fat32 or NTFS

    So isn't 3.4u the latest version for US wii's? When i check my settings its says 4.3U which makes me think I'm already updated. OR is it possible that if I downgraded my CIOS once after updating my wii it will still read 3.4? What version of modmii should i get? Also from running the program will it give me a choice of which dumper I can choose or is it only CFG? Can I still dump wifi? thanks again

    If you have updated to 4.3 (latest) from 3.4 then all your cios's are now stubbs hence dumper cannot run. Just get modmii (it will update itself on running if it is not the latest, put back the latest cios's and your dumper will probably run again

    OK so I do have 4.3 and when I ran syscheck it does say cios249 is a stubb. My question is now what option on Modwii do I run to just update my Cios249. I really don't want to go and rent one of the needed games if I don't have to? Thanks

    No need for a game (select Letterbomb)
