this thread is awesome. successfully softmoded my wii following this guide. now i can play games off of a USB HDD. fantastic.
the only thing now is, how do i set up the wii to automatically load USB Loader GX when i turn on the wii? is this even possible?
Thanks for the help.
Edit: Ok i see the folder with the files, but boot mii doesnt run. what should i do?
make sure everything installs without an error (also you can check if installation succeded by watching the blue dvd light when powering on, if it flashed twice you got bootmii as boot2 installed)
aah, guess: you are in standby and powering on from there, the wii light is orange? power off the wii by holding down the power button till it turns red, try again (also turn off wiiconnect24 in the wii settings to disable standbymode)
if that doesn't help your card may be unsupported, are you using a SD card max. 2Gb (no mini or sdhc card)?
that you can't access it from hbc is because you didn't install bootmii as ios alongside, do it if you want to have it)
And it's now time for some feedback. As my wii had Twilight hack made more than 1,5 years ago and I hadn't upgraded it since, I followed this guide and now everything is running as it should.
If it helps somebody then - at the beginning I had:
wad manager 1.1
custom wad manager 1.1
ios downgrader v1.1
custom ios downgrade 1.2
cios installer 0.3 gamma wiigator
shop channel instal 1.1
the homebrew channel beta 9. IOS36
Guide works, I didn't brick anything.
Usually this issue comes up with older Wiis; if this would be the case, see this post and use IOS 35 instead (skip steps 3A-3C in this tutorial). The link is for 3.1->4.0->4.1 if --- and I say if --- this is a 3.1 Wii (where usually no IOS 36 can be found).
i will try this tomorrow
