Brand New, with Thanks
I found this site late last evening (est) and used a guide by someone with a name close to Mauifrog (similar) about the softmod4.3 guide. I had installed hackmii and homebrew via the smash bros exploit. Thought I was pretty darn savvy and working my way towards a backup launcher.
My project was abruptly halted by my inability to load any custom ios besides 36 and 58 (needed 249). I found the 4.3 soft mod guide and saved my entire project.
When I can find time, (not in the near future) I'm hoping to turn my WII into a family movie theather and my goal is to make it a channel. (with a lot of work I'm sure).
Hi and welcome to WiiHacks pantz

Don’t be shy, ask if you are stuck, just don’t expect other people to do all the work for you.
Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.

2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.
