What is this step below do exaclty ??
6. Done! You now have HBC and cIOS249 so all your HB should work. If you plan on staying on 4 add the patched IOS60 and run IOS downgrader.
First timer on the board, and might as well be honest :P
My parrents have aquired themself a wii, with the fit board, since my father have sclerosis and could use the "exercise" with the wii fit "game".. Now I know of the hbc cuz i've read about it, and listened to people who have chipped their wii to be able to use this and for other purposes which i dont need to go into.
I was wondering, i looked at their wii, and its a model RVL-001(EUR) Guessing EU model obviously since its in europe ^^
serial is LEH2532...... (guessing all the serial isnt needed for an estimated guess)
Would i be able to use this little hack to get hbc on their wii which is updated via internet wifi to 4.0e ?
Also when the hbc is installed, would i then be able to get the usb bootloader thingi in, so i can run stuff off an external usb for them ?
And does it still stay at 4.0e or does it get downgraded ? I see that its possible to run some stuff, but since im completly green at this i hope there is some kind of guide that i have missed maybe :)
I did peruse a few days before i finally registered here ( guess im a lurker ).
@bash - if you plan on staying on 4 that step downgrades your IOS to ones with the fakesign bug and adds the fakesign bug to IOS60, which allows you to run wads/homebrew etc
@zemata - It will work fine for your parents wii and you will be able to run the usb loader or downgrade if you like, just follow one of the guides :)
Ret error -1035 on any wads I try to install D:
But if i just do the 5 first steps, will that downgrade their wii if i understand correctly?
Will that have any impact as to the functionality of their wii, or can i make it stay at the 4.0e as their used to use ?
Reason im asking is they bought some of the wii ware games, older c64 games and a wild west gun game too.. I dont want them to lose that of course, and regarding the guides, i did go through those ones there. But ill just have to look harder as i progress through the endavour..
IF it goes fubar, can i restore their wii to some factory like default, i know there is a reset button, but im thinking this is basicly firmware alteration at its best, and its not exactly a G1 android phone i can hook up to the pc :)
the steps i read about are quite clear and cant be misunderstood of course! im just asking to be able to say something to them before attempting the scenario :)
Thx for patience and understanding !
I managed to get the HBC, but I have some problems installing DVDx. When I try to install it I get 2 lines of text for about a second and then a black screen. What should I do?
Is there any backup loader for 4.0E?
@white slayer - you can't install dvdx on 4, gamma backup loader works fine on 4.
@zero - those wad install errors always leave me stumped!?
@zemata - doing the 5 steps won't downgrade the wii it will just add hbc and a cios so you can use homebrew, you wont lose any functionality but you will gain a lot and your vc games will be fine! You can't factory reset the wii but you can use preloader (search it) for some protection.
Hi there - new poster here. I've had a Wii for about a year and a half, bought it in the US then moved to Europe. Didn't realize they had region encoding, and just tried to buy a new game only to have it not work and figure out why. Serial number is LU52768528 - and I stupidly upgraded to 4.0U before I realized that it made putting homebrew on impossible. Am I basically screwed or can this model be downgraded so that I can put homebrew? Thanks a lot for your help.
