USB Backup help for an utter noob :o\
Hey all, just got my first Wii console (black 4.2), primarily to test and verify the read state of Wii & Gamecube discs.
Spent the morning reading up on the quickest methods available (ftp, usb, sd) and the backup to USB method looks quickest, with USB LoaderGX 2.0 seeming the most current / updated release (correct me if I'm wrong :) ).
Batthaxx'd, installed homebrew channel w/ bootmii (on IOS), then started getting confused.
Is there any up-to-date guide on how to get it working? The USB Loader readme references a load of old cIOS and DopMii packages, but I got this far following ReadMii - USB Loader GX ...
Installed latest DopMii release as of today, using Install IOS36 (v3351) w/FakeSign and accepting all default options. Seemed to go ok.
The used cIOS r21, patched IOS36 (via network install, which succeeded), accepted all other default options, then the last one failed with an error (1075 or something like that).
Got out of that, tried to figure out what was going on, and everything got major confusing.
Figured I'd try the following guide as it's more up to date:

But get as far as attempting to run Bootmii from Homebrew channel and it just gives a black screen with flashing dvd light. Reset console, and starting hombrew channel once gave me a "system settings are corrupt" message. Reboot, restart homebrew and it's fine, but bootmii still won't load (not that I really know what to do with it, just wanted to backup nand before messing anything else up).
Soo... Now I don't wanna touch it as I've no idea what I'm doing, and don't wanna brick anything (console it was next to free, but still...). Anyone got a guide on how to just set things up so I can rip a disc somewhere, purley to verify that it's readable in the first place? Thanks :)
