    Hey people, I'm having trouble with the VGA mod and I'm stuck for what to troubleshoot and was wondering if anybody has any tips.

    So I think my wiring is okay, below in the diagram you can see where I've chosen to wire from (let me know if you think any of this is wrong).

    - Wii mobo/model is an NTSCJ rvl cpu-01
    - PriiloaderVGA and postloader/portablizeMii are displaying at15khz interlaced (RGB)
    - I'm able to get Composite when I flick the switch I have setup between pin 8 and 10
    - I believe the sync is wired correctly from the AVE since testing the 15khz RGBHV on a PVM the image is only sync'd when both the H and V lines are attached to my 15khz PVM monitor
    [​IMG]
    - Sometimes I get this 'crazy screen' and putting it into a VGA PC Monitor it doesn't display anything (I'm aware 480p shouldn't display on this PVM and would also produce a 'crazy screen')

    Video of said crazy screen:


    Here's how the SD card is setup:
    [​IMG]
    - Didn't do anything with SNEEK except extract it from the zip file and place it on the root of the SD card
    - Priiloader screen displays the following: c.08.2 (rVGA) IOS v80

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Yes, I have 2 different model boards and the board I posted a picture of doesn't show video when wired to VGA, however wiring the same wires from the wii that didn't work on this board works on my other one just fine meaning the wiring is good but the board is bad. Thank you for your suggestion though! I don't want to hijack this thread so if I have any other questions about this board I will post elsewhere. Thank you guys!

    Rerun the Cheese installer, and select remove wifi IOSes. This installs the proper IOSes for the PriiLoader VGA installer to run.

    But will this remove the wi-fi from my wii?
    I'm making a wii laptop with bluetooth and wi-fi.

    It's there any other ios36 that i can install if it's the case?

    thanks

    I think the way I got it working again was by rerunning the cheese installer again after installing the priiloader VGA patch. Then select "add back wifi IOSes". You'll probably have to change your emunand to get it working in games. I'm really not qualified to give advice on this, since I don't know how the VGA patch works. I just figured that if you didn't care about WiFi, that would be an easy way to fix your problem.

    @Aurelio, is there a known good way to keep/add back WiFi after installing this patch?

    You might want to try redoing your H-sync and V-sync lines on the AVE, since it looks like your monitor is still getting signal, but isn't able to lock onto it properly. If you used magnet wire, it's entirely possible that it's broken off of the pins partially.

    Not really. Priiloader installer relies on a patched IOS36. Eventually we'll move these patches to a single pack installer along with portablizemii and it will be easier

    I do remember getting WiFi working at the same time as the VGA mod, but I don't know how the heck it was working, since I installed the remove WiFi IOSes mod right before testing it.

    Also, is there a way to check whether the system can see the wifi module before flashing the IOSes that require it to be present for booting?

    You do have a ground wire, right?

    Also, your image is broken.

    Sorry. It's corrected now.

    I'm using the large shield wire of the cable as ground and conected to all ground pins in the vga connector to it.

    I found the cause of the color problem. I soldered the wires based on the pin colors of this official guide image:

    I'm going to do new tests now.

    Maybe this is the problem @Gunstar.

    That's definitely the issue.

    When in doubt, go by the text, not the colors.

    It's not a mistake in the guide. The colors are matched to the YPbPr component video standard connector colors

    So in component mode the pin 7 is green and in the RGB/VGA mode is red?

    Damn, I trimmed before I installed this. Am I fucked? (I assume I am)

    No, you can still install the patches just fine
