Hi all, First of all I am not a pirate! Just want to my kids to be able to play games I OWN from a USB drive. This is my second system I am hacking. The first one a few years a go, this one is a new one with v4.3u. I have not been able to find complete instructions anywhere on the net yet for the entire hack (that work), unlike the first system I did. So far I have used the Letter Bomb exploit to install HBC and I have HBC working and few a few HBC apps working, one app being WiiMC, and I am able to read and play AVI's, MP3's. etc. via the USB port on my machine. I have USB Loader GX installed and (the the channel as well), but it does not work. I start it up and get a blank screen for a while, then a stack dump. My hangup seems to be in getting the proper IOS installed. My first attempt was installing IOS249, and like many have reported before it loses connectivity with the remotes so I cannot do it. After some more research I tried installing DOP Mii, IOS036, then IOS236, then IOS249, but no luck, and I am not sure those steps were all completed correctly to begin with. Anyhelp is GREATLY appreciated!

Thank you for becoming a member of the best wii modding site around!
First off you need to read the Site rules and try your best to abide by them.
Now we know the rules its time to find the right guide for modding your wii, I recommend the
The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog
This guide works for all wii's
And Bluphant's noobs guide - Basic introduction to wii hacking
There are also other guides which you can find in the Guides and tutorials section
Once you have completed the guide you need to ascertain if your wii is capable of playing backups via the disc drive or whether you need to be usb loading.
Wii's post 2009 generally cannot play backups via the disc drive and have to use usb loading.
I recommend usb loading anyway as you can add an remove your games easily and there is no wear and tear on your disc drive and no messing about with discs etc.
