    GUIDE - Installing System Menu Themes





    For all Wii consoles with a system menu version between 4.0-4.3.

    WARNING: Installing System Menu themes is risky business. WiiHacks does not recommend you attempt this without having BootMii installed as boot2 with a current nand backup and/or priiloader installed.
    ONLY install themes from a trusted source.
    ONLY install themes for your specific system menu and region!
    Faulty themes can and will BRICK YOUR WII.
    In addition, installing a custom theme that is corrupt could possibly corrupt Priiloader as well, bricking you PERMANENTLY unless you have bootmii as boot2!


    Now that you've read and fully understand the risks involved.... On with the guide!

    There are multiple things you will need to do in order to safely install a custom theme. Read each of the following spoilers carefully before proceeding!

    Understanding file types and how Themes work


    Downloading and setting up ThemeMii for first time use


    Converting .mym files to .csm files


    Installing and Using MyMenuify



    The following themes have been verified as safe by the staff here at WiiHacks. If you would like to submit a theme for display in this post, please PM cjizzle links to the mym files (as many regions as possible). Since 4.1 is the most popular system menu, please make certain that it is compatible with that system menu version!

    Thanks a ton Cjizzle, this is so useful! This is just what the site needed. It's pretty obscure finding themes now adays. Plus there's no good instructions out there to help install it, they only provided the mym files.
    Now if only I knew how to edit themes, mainly to change the health screen background. There's nobody on Earth that knows how. Only the few rare theme creators out there do.

    Edit: Some of these themes have video previews. It might be good idea to put them into spoilers. It's not easy choosing a theme when all you can see if the health screen. Just a suggestion though xD

    On another note, the banner at the top is sorta hard to read. It looks nice, but dark letters on a dark background is kinda hard to read. Just observing, giving some opinions. Sorry bmarlo, I love your edits, no hard feelings!

    Great job CJizzle! I'm gonna go play with this on my older Boot2 Wii later today.

    Everyone take heed of his warning and read the guide carefully. While new themes can give a new look to your old Wii, there are risks involved. If you have a newer Wii (one without gamecube ports) just stop now, and don't even think about doing this. These wiis have virtually no safety net avaialble in the event that something goes wrong. Having bootmii installed as boot2 is the only sane way to use this guide.

    I've gathered video previews for each of the provided themes here. If you want to use them, they'll be here in this post.

    Video previews [Dark themes]



    Just helping a brother out at Wiihacks =)

    Seems like so far you have all the dark themes. This may turn into one of different categories in the future when other themes are shared here.

    Hope this helps out.

    The link for the ThemeMii file isn't working. Everytime I try to download, I get a corrupted archive. I tried searching for alternative sources, but I can't find a version that supports 4.3 U. Can anyone help? Before you ask, I already have bootmii as boot2 and priiloader installed.

    That link worked, but it didn't have support for 4.3 system menus. Guess I'm too late to the game?

    Haha..all this time I didnt realize it didnt support 4.3. Maybe thats because 4.3 was pointless? Anyways, you could try to find a newer version, or you could downgrade to 4.1 using the Softmod ANY Wii guide. 4.1 is better to be on anyways
