>Wii Backup Loader 0.3 gamma


Updated January 2011

All the files you require are contained in the zip file with the possible exception of the IOS16 – but thats also around if you edit the download filename.

ALTERNATIVELY you can use the IOS15toIOS16patcher in this zip to patch a copy of IOS15 extracted from a game iso (using wiiscrubber) from IOS15 to IOS16,

therefore bypassing the need to download “Wii Backup Disc v1.3″. Thanks for this davi92? (correct me if i\’m wrong…)

Step 1 Lets assume you have already updated your Wii to the latest Firmware. 3.4

Step 2 Install the ‘Homebrew Channel’ onto your Wii if you dont have it already (see below)

Step 3 Put the contents of this zip onto your SD Card.

Step 4 Using the ‘Homebrew Channel’, open ‘WAD Manager 3’.

Step 5 Press ‘A’ on the WiiMote once. The Wii should detect a SD Card. Press ‘A’ again to see a list of

WADs on the SD Card. Use the ‘D-Pad’ to select ‘IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad’.
Press the ’+’ to install the WAD. Once it has installed the WAD, press the ‘Home’ button to restart you Wii.
Step 6 Using the ‘Homebrew Channel’, open ‘Custom WM’. Now using the same method as in ‘Step 5’, install the ‘cios_fix.wad’. Once it has installed the WAD, press the ‘Home’ button to restart you Wii.

Step 7 Using the ‘Homebrew Channel’, open ‘IOS Downgrader’. Just follow the instructions and wait until it finishes installing the necessary IOSs.

Step 8 Using the ‘Homebrew Channel’, open ‘Install Shop IOS51’. Say ‘Yes’ to installing the ‘IOS51’ and ‘Yes’ to patching a fix but ‘No’ to the ‘Wii Shop Channel’

(it shouldn’t matter if you install but it won’t make any difference).

Step 9 Using the ‘Homebrew Channel’, open ‘WAD Manager 3’.

Step 10 Now you should be able to install WADs. Try installing the ‘WAD MANAGER V3.wad’ (use this channel to install any WADs in the furture) and ‘Wii Gator.wad’.
Other apps should also work as well such as ‘AnyRegion Changer’.

Optional Step


You can downgrade to 3.2X if you want. Use ‘AnyRegion Changer’ to do that.

Then repeat ‘Step 8’ and say ‘Yes’ to installing the ‘Wii Shop Channel’ (otherwise the Shop Channel will not work).

Backup Launcher 0.3 gamma

What is included:
– cIOS Installer
– Backup Launcher 0.3 with banner

0.3 gamma
– Optimised speed
– Higher compatibilty
– Support loading 1:1 backups from disc channel

Note: This version is faster, but some videos will play a little bit too slow. This also depends on the quality of your DVD media.

0.3 beta
– Cinematic now working properly
– Wi-Fi Enabled
– Faster Load time
– Drive speed is still 3x. It is so fast that some testers believed it is running at 6x.
– Supports non-patched and patched Wii games (The correct term for “patched” is “decrypted”
– Not all games will work, but as of now most do.

Some parts are modification of free available source code, and are unsupported and not condoned by the original authors of it. The backup loader modification is solely the work of WiiGator.
Thanks to Waninkoko for the speed optimisation.
Thanks to WiiShizzza for the graphic.
Thanks to all testers.

It is prohibited to use any of the software to illegally copy games, they are intended only to create and play legal backups of games that you own. In some countries or regions it is still illegal to make copies of games that you own, check with your local authorities if you are unsure. I cannot be held responsible for any misuse of these programs. The use of any of the above software is done so at your own risk. If you mess something up or anything undesirable (ie: loss of warranty, brick, lawsuits, jailtime) happens because of any of these programs, it is your own fault. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!


1. Install new cIOS. Make sure its properly installed
2. Load Backup Launcher and play game.

Q. What does it do?
A. Play Wii backups on your non-modded Wii.

Q. Do all games work?
A. This is only a beta version. Not all games will work, but as of now most do.

Q: Where do I get support for it?
A: I do this in my free time. So you need to search in the internet for forums like http://gbatemp.net.

Q: Where do I get an update?
A: You will get updates at my blog: http://gbatemp.net/?act=module&module=blogs&member=WiiGator

Q: When will it support … and when will be released?
A: I do this in my free time, so I don\’t know.

Q: How do I start a game from the disc channel?
A: You need to start Backup Launcher and press button “B” (See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGU52_ttd9o&fmt=18). The NAND flash is not changed for this feature. The support works until you go back to the Wii System Menu or reset the Wii. The feature may not work, if you have Starfall installed.

Q: Should I install an update from a game backup?
A: No. This is untested and by default disabled.

Q: I started a game from the disc channel and then I go back to the Wii System Menu. Why I can\’t start the next game from the disc channel?
A: Backup Launcher need to be started again to launch the next game.

Q. What does patched games means and do I need it?
A. This was used in the first version. The game application was decrypted. It is not needed anymore. 1:1 backups have higher compatibility than patched games.

Q. How do I run it?
A. Seems you don\’t know anything about homebrew yet:
– You need to install http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Channel.
– You will need http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/Twilight_Hack and the game “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” to install the channel.
– Create the directory apps in the root of your SD card.
– Copy Backup_Launcher and cIOS_Installer to the directory apps.
– Put the SD card into the front SD slot of your Wii.
– Then run the homebrew channel.
– First install cIOS and then run Backup Launcher.

Q. I can\’t install cIOS, I keep getting an error. How do I fix this?
A. You need to downgrade your Wii. I suggest not to uninstall IOS249 until you are sure that you have downgraded your Wii.

Q. Do I need the new cIOS to play games?
A. Yes.

Q. Does Wi-Fi work?
A. Yes, some games have been tested and they work. Though we\’re not sure if all of them work. Newer games which use IOS37 seems to be slow.

Q. I have a problem, will you fix it?
A. Post it in the Backup Launcher thread and beta testers or someone can help you.

Q. Can I be a beta tester?
A. You have already something what you can test.

Q. Will this brick my Wii?
A. There is a slim chance that it will. I have installed the cIOS countless times with no problems. But just make sure you follow the onscreen instructions. It is possible that someone puts malicious software on a game disc. I suggest to run only games which are correctly signed by Nintendo! You can check this for example by running extractpartition. Don\’t install updates from a burned game disc of a different region, this was already reported to brick your Wii, when using a hardware modchip. Note: The Wii System Menu is not changed in the flash, so launching from disc channel should be safe.

Q. My game doesn\’t start. What should I do?
A1. The loader isn\’t perfect. It will probably be fixed in the next update.
A2. Try to launch it directly from Backup Launcher (First menu entry, Button “A”.
A3. Try to launch it using the disc channel (Button “B”.
A4. Check if IOS is correctly installed. The used IOS version is shown in the bottom right corner and should be IOS249. If IOS249 is not displayed, you need to install the cIOS.
A5. Try to change the hook type in the configuration.

Q. Does it load GameCube backups?
A. No. GameCube backups are shown in the disc channel, but can\’t be started (just reboot).

Q. Does it play old games like Twilight Princess and Red Steel?
A. Twilight Princess is working, Red Steel is not working. Some old games are not working.

Q. Do I need dvdx?
A. No. Just ignore it and forget that it could be in anyway related to this program.

Q. There is a online or disc update available from Nintendo, should I update it?
A. NEVER MAKE ANY UPDATE FROM NINTENDO!!! This can make the backup launcher unusable. There are better ways to do this. If you make an update, you may not be able to install this.

Q. Where does cIOS install?
A. It installs on the NAND flash of your Wii. It uses IOS249 v7.

Q. Is this easy to uninstall if I decide I dont want it?
A. Yes – most of the install files can be removed with the WAD manager – the rest just delete off the SD card.

Q. I\’m getting an error with : DVD Read Error when I try to run a game – why ?
A. This is a burn media issue – don\’t use DVD REWRITABLES and try a different disc/drive/burn speed. You need to change the book type of DVD+R.

Q. I\’m getting an error with (game graphic): Disc eject and RTFM – why ?
A. Eject the disc and insert it again. This is a burn media issue – dont use DVD REWRITABLES and try a different disc/drive/burn speed. You need to change the book type of DVD+R.
