    Ca wii 4.0 - information overload/confusion

    My friend recently bought the wii from WalMart here in Ontario CA. I checked the version and it's 4.0. I've read the softmodding for dummies 4.0, I've read people's posts about CIOS36 etc. I'm new to softmodding and most of the lingo is a little confusing. I've softmodded my 3.4 with no issue's and I'm using USBLoader and Backup Launcher with no difficulties.

    However the 4.0 is driving me up the wall. I really don't want to pay some guy $40 to get me past the HBC. Basically all my friend wants to do is have the HBC, backup games and play backup games. He is in no way technically inclined but is willing to learn how to use the USBLoader and Backup Launcher.

    If anyone can point me in the right direction of which apps are current and correct for 4.0 to backup and play backup games I would really appreciate it. I'm also not apposed to reading and searching - but when you don't know what to look for its killer.

    Thanks

    Lightbulb Links for softmodding your 4.0 Wii

    Hi,
    You need to enable the HBC via the Banner Bomb exploit. There is a nice guide (all files ZIP'd for you) via YouTube. After that you will need to load the correct ios/cios updates, and I second messie's recommendation of the guide by Dogeggs for that.

    Good luck!

    I must say these directions are very good. However soft modding my 3.4 was much easier. I can see why someone would need to read and read again. For once in my techy life I'm a little nervous to try this on someone else's machine.

    Don't follow that useless youtube video and start asking questions as to why you can't get things to work after following it as the mods dislike it with a passion.

    After watching countless youtube video's and reading user posts I've finally got it.

    I think a good point to remember when modding your machine - have the internet hooked up for CIOS!
