Just got a WII and it's running ver 4.1u. Do I still follow the instruction on page 1 of this post even though it's 6 months old? Do I also use the Wii_Softmod_Files_011810.rar or is there an updated ver I sould use?
I also ready in the "softmodding a Wii FAQ" that if you install bootmii as an ios (which I will have to as running ver 4.1) it is not recommended that you restore your NAND files. What other ways of restoring are there?
Big thanks in advance guys.
great stuff,just watched the vid on nand back up and realised i was in the middle of back up today and panicked,ended up turning off the wii,back on seems ok now,should i empty sd card and hack all over again ?
hey nightstah i got everything done but backups still wont load my hdd is a wd 200 gig ide in a usb case 50 gig ntfs 150 gig (little less) wbfs. i have 3 games on it (1 that i downloaded nsmb) (2 that i dumped using loader gx wii play, wiifit plus) none of the games load past the wrist strap screen and i just want to say thanks for the help
Wiis that can install bootmii as boot2 are able to access bootmii from a low level step, just after bootup. When bootmii can only be installed as IOS (all Wiis made after about 18 months ago) then one needs Homebrew Channel access in order to run bootmii. Priiloader maintains that access and so becomes more important for newer Wiis. The recommendation not to restore as a primary option because bootmii is installed into the very IOS that may have been corrupted by whateverf disaster has befallen the Wii. With priiloader installed and working, HBC access allows other repair efforts to occur w.o having to resort to a possibly corrupted app/restore. It is never a bad idea to have the Wii NAND backup, just where on triage efforts does bootmii fall, changes with the installation constraints.
great guides work without a problem thx
The hand is now upside down in Loader and home brew channel. It is fine in Wii Menu, but goes upside down in loader and HBC. The movement is also inverted. In USB loaded games the hand is still upside down but motion is correct.
I do not know of anything done to make this happen. My 5 year old son was playing it and who knows if he did something. But I checked all settings and cannot find any that address this.
I am not sure how it happened. I am still at menu 4.1U. I tried upgrading HBC after the problem appeared, but the hackmii v.6 stops and says it can NOT install because there is no known vulnerable IOS installed on this wii.
I have run this tutorial and its been fine.
Any help? Anyone else have this issue and solved it?
Very noob at this. So , how can i know if i have 250 blocks free at step 4. My wii is on 4.0 atm And how do i exactly installIOS60-patched its kind of confusing :(
So i guess i figured out i have around 7000 free blocks. Anyway its my first day i have this wii so i didnt want too brick it.
Can someone like explain to me how i can install ISO60-patched ? tyvm
Second Edit :
I guess i shoudn't ask before i actually try but just want to be sure.
So i opened wad manager , i loaded up ios249. But the thing is i dont see IOS60-patched ...
