Wii Support
« on: 27/Jan/2012 08:35:21 PM »
I was wondering if anyone tried theirs on the wii for some reason my doesn't see it at all. I tried it on both of my wii's. Yes there both modded :). Just wondering if I am doing something wrong. Other than that this thing is great.

Steps I did:
Pluged in the retrode with LoZ
Started my Wii
Went to Homebrew
Started Emulator
Went to USB Storage

Then throws cannot find USB Device. Retry or quit.

That's odd.

I haven't tried my Retrode 2 out on the Wii (yet)

I just received my Retrode 2 yesterday, so will try it again.
I know my Retrode (Classic) works fine

Not sure if this is related I was trying to update the firmware and it read it as unrecognized usb so i tried to use the flip driver usb and Windows keeps prompting me "Windows was unable to install your Unknown Device."
On Step 4/5.

if windows wont recognize it in normal mode, the wii wont either.

probably Matthias will have an better answer,
but sounds like the firmware is borked and needs reloaded.

which firmware were you trying?
    Retrode2-v0.17c.zip
    Retrode2-v0.17b.zip
i hope :)

That's quite weird indeed. Maybe you have connected and unplugged (or put to HWB mode) the device fast enough to confuse Windows' driver framework. I'd suggest you hold down both buttons, connect the Retrode to a USB port you haven't used before. After a few seconds, release the Reset button and another two seconds later also the HWB button. Then install the DFU driver as per instructions.

Also, the USB cable you use in the video seems fairly long. Have you tried with a shorter one?

In case all of the above doesn't help, it would be very use to have a lsusb transcript.

It's hard to believe that the HWB mode should be broken on the Retrode (after all, the very same mode was used to flash the initial firmware onto the device). In order to allow Windows to detect/install the Retrode in HWB mode from scratch, I suggest you start the registry editor and locate/delete all records belonging to the Jungo driver: VID 03EB, PID 2FF9. (Since they do not always show up in the same form, try searching for 03EB and check if there's a 2FF9 nearby to make sure you don't accidentally delete the wrong entries.)

Edit: Okay, so the HWB mode is fixed. Maybe you should exchange Wii/Homebrew OS version numbers with FelixV in order to to narrow down the problem.

Could be they kicked all sorts of USB drivers out of later Wii System releases, but I really don't know enough about this matter to be of help. Does the system recognize random other USB devices? Do other Wii Homebrew users report about USB problems too?

Do USB drives normally work on *that emulator* on your Wii? Have you modified the IOSes at all (custom IOS packs like cIOSCorp, etc.)?


You could also try updating your Wii, then reinstalling Homebrew Channel to get it to use IOS59. This has USB2.0 support, as opposed to older IOSes (like 61, I think) which don't, so that could be part of the problem - it could be that the Retrode requires USB2.0 support to work, or at least, work with that specific emulator.
