yes nate - you need homebrew channel to be able to run the apps...
I'm kinda confused too lol. I'll be modding my friends wii that she'll be buying tonight so I'm sure it'll be lu65 or something like that..... so first we need to install homebrew channel, then what next before we do this tbr package? do we still have to downgrade to 3.2 or something then go back up to 4.0 after all modding is finished? all of this patching in the above instructions, does the installer have these options or do we have to understand what it means? I'm talking about when you say:
2: Run Trucha Bug Restorer and downgrade IOS15.
3. Run Trucha Bug Restorer again this time booting it with IOS15 & install patched (all patches) IOS36 as IOS36.
4: Run Trucha Bug Restorer again and this time restore IOS15.
I don't understand this downgrading and restoring, is it something the installer will give me the choice to pick? thanks
If you had to downgrade it would say so! All you have to do is install hbc then run the app, it doesn't matter what firmware/serial your wii is on. When you run it you will easily understand what you have to do as the installer has all the options i mention. What it does is first downgrade your ios15, then using the downgraded ios15 it allows you to install a patched ios36, ios15 should then be restored in case it causes problems with other stuff, so you are just left with a fully patched ios36 that when used with the cios installer allows you to install cios38r13.
ah ok, so all I have to do is install homebrew channel, then EVERYTHING else I need is included in this file except for a backup loader, gotcha, thanks!!
I've been reading this guide here as it seems to be the latest to keep my LU65 Wii up to date with the latest IOS etc. I have two questions that I still need some clarification for:
1. I used this guide http://www.wiihacks.com/wii-custom-s...-menu-4-a.html posted by DogEggs which uses the LU64fix (or a variant of it) to soft mod the Wii and I installed cIOS38_rev13b just as the instructions said. I'm currently at the stock 3.4U firmware. I would like to know if I can just use the guide posted in this thread to update the Wii to the latest hacked IOS's and be able to update to 4.0u or if I follow a different procedure due to the different way the LU64+ have been hacked with the LU64fix?
2. If I use this guide here, is it Preloader installer ready on LU64+ Wiis or is there still more patching to be done?
1: as you have a cios already there is no need to do this guide unless - see 2
2: once you have the patched ios36 you can use preloader on an lu64+
Hey, I've finished all these steps after already installing HBC. Now I've got emulators and wad virtual console games, is it dangerous to be connected online? Thanks.
:)I almost feel like crying tears of joy! You guys are too badass!!! THANKS A WHOLE LOT! Ha! So I wanted to think Nintendo had altered my replacement Wii though it is a LU51 to keep me from hacking it like I did my previous system which repairs had nothing to do with softmods. It's obvious now that the installation process to install CIOS' just may vary a little for a few Wiis, but not many. Anyway I can play my import games and backups again!
