    Hello from newbie...

    hi guys!

    Thank you for a great forum!

    Somehow I've managed to follow a youtube tutorial to mod the wii, but I'm stuck on a couple of things. Here is what i've managed to do so far:-

    Sys menu ver: 4.3E
    Installed : modmii hack for 4.3E
    Any issues: Bootmii reported that it can only install as IOS due to boot1 or something


    Now that you know what I've done, here are my questions:-

    1. I have a 64gb flash stick and some WBFS backups - How can i setup this flash stick and get the games to work? What do I need to do or shall I say whats the best method?

    2. Is there anything to worry about regarding the bootmii IOS problem?


    Thanks again!

    Not sure why that auto-moderated. You didn't include any links in the message that I noticed.

    It probably picked up on the (improper) code/HTML and tripped it. Welcome to the site.

    We do NOT recommend youFAIL videos as a source for modding. If BootMii wouldn't install as boot2, then nothing can be done about it. Our guide has you install Priiloader and other preventative measures in an effort to avoid a careless brick. We recommend you follow that guide. We also have a FAT32 guide for USB devices and a compatibility list (user-submitted).

    Thanks for your reply nightstah - I still continued installing Priiloader and used the modmii created guide and implemented the recommended measures.

    I'm a bit confused as I thought NTFS was the recommended choice, so can you please clarify a couple of things for me:-

    1. What do you recommend I format a 64gb usb stick in? FAT? FAT32? or NTFS?
    2. Depending on your answer for the question 1, what type of backups shall I use? ISO? or WBFS?
    3. Since I've now applied the miimod hack, will I need any other software/hack to run games off usb?
