I cannot find a button to click for thanks.
Shouldn't I better upgrade to 4.2 and then softmod?
Thanks for help.
No, 4.2 only introduced further anti-piracy measures, nothing more. Same is true for 4.3, only worse. 4.1 is where you want to be (it introduced a bug fix for Wii Sports Resort that was present for 4.0 users). You'll usually see the "thanks" button by the Blog this Post option at the bottom of a given post. I do know sometimes "compatibility mod" on IE8 will obscure it.
I made one small mistake, but re-did the cIOS step and BOOM! done! Another successful softmod!
Cheers for the great guide and awesome forum support.
Now off to the USB loader guide!
Regular Periodic Posting of Links
1. MIRROR SITES
If the download link does not work for you and you are not using a download manager and have already checked your firewall settings, then here are some alternative mirror sites for the softmod download: Mirror 1 and Mirror 2
Rar files can be extracted with WinRar, 7-Zip, or RarZilla.
2. Offline update to system menu 4.1. (Updates only the system menu, no IOSes or channels are updated as in the case of the network updating, so the interim 4.0 step is not performed in the offline update of 3.1 and earlier Wiis.)
Repeated failure of network update or Wii has NO INTERNET. Perform an offline update of the system menu:
If your Wii is 3.xU (US):SystemMenu-NTSCU-v449.rar
If your Wii is 3.xE (European):SystemMenu-PAL-v450.rar
(Post in the forum thread if you need to update a different region)
Download the correct system menu file for your Wiiís region. Use WinRar to extract the sysmenu wad file. Copy the wad to your SD card and use Wad Manager to install (leave at the default settings of IOS249 and SD card slot) IOS60patched and then sysmenu.wad. Proceed to Tutorial Step 5B.
3. Unable to download Firmware Updater 4.0: Mirror Site HERE . Use WinRar to extract the file and then copy the boot.dol file into the Apps folder on your SD card. Make sure you have installed IOS60patched. Go to the HBC menu and run FW4.0Updater. You may now run FW4.1updater; no need to re-install IOS60patched. Proceed to Tutorial Step 5B.
hey, i'm really new to the wii hacks thing but really want to do it. My question is, will this work on the new black wii's? Sorry for the noob question.
Yes it will. You will not be able to play disk backups due to the d3-2 drive chip but you can go with USB Loading instead.
Good Day all, I have followed this guie by modding my 3.1 wii however when I was in #4. UPDATE YOUR SYSTEM MENU VERSION i did see it tries to connect to the internet and then hang forever. I did reboot my wii but it's already blackscreen.
I am able to load files from cboot2_wadmanager_1.5_mod but I don't know what to do. I also have a gamecube controller and was able to navigate. Please help me how to restore my wii. :(
Thank you in advance.
