Now I need to find a way to either pull saves directly from nand.bin or more preferably find a tool that can export saves but that works on 4.3 without any cIOS (yeah, good luck right? I know).
Thanx for the help mauifrog.
I have tried all the iso's the ones that will work will not let me install any wads :<
It pays to research before jumping into anything.. And thank god this forum is here.. Its the first thing I check whenever I wake up and that blue light is flashing on the Wii..
I've followed your tutorial exactally, but I got a really big problem during this follow up. Until part 3 everything was just fine. But when I installed the 4.1u-System Menu-NUS-v449 (I've an american Wii) - and I paid attention to your advice: "Do not install this before ios60-v6174, you will brick", so the menu wad was installed after the ios60-v6174 - still, I've got a brick. My wii turns on (by the wiimote) but a black screen stays on - I think it's called black brick.
I've been reading the whole site all day long before asking for help, but I couldn't solve it by myself.
Here is my detailed situation:
I was following this tutorial: http://www.wiihacks.com/blogs/shadow...s-4-3-wii.html
Then it came up to your tutorial as it is mentioned on the one above. After I installed the 4.1 system menu wad and rebooted the wii, the system menu itself could not be loaded and a black screen stays on.
As I was following the tutorial word by word, bootmii and priiloader were not installed yet.
What should I do?
I've tried using a GC control on the 4th socket and pressing the D pad at the turning on but nothing happened. I don't know if nothing happened because I did not took away the controllers screws (I don't have the right screwdriver) in order to press all direction at the same time or if it is really not working. I have an original GC control and I saw on youtube some guys doing this thing without removing the control screws, by pressing the D pad hardly with their thumbs, as I did.
My wii has the WiiKey chip on it, so it can play back up dvds. I've tried the autoboot dvds from the brick section of this site, but as I cant make the BootMiiFrii thing it will not be autobooted.
I would really appreciate some ideas of what to do. Sorry about bothering you with this or if I posted in a wrong place, but as it happened following up of this tutorial I thought replying in here could help someone else before he/she got bricked.
Also, I'm not a English speaker, so forgive me any mistake.
Thanks for any help
With that said, I am rewriting the guide to a more fail safe method if possible.
it may be possible he had a wii that was a 4.2 wii when it was bought wouldnt that cause that sort of brick if he tryed to downgrade to 4.1 cause the lu64+ are a bit finacky about downgradeing thats why i havent used the guide cause i only saw to downgrade to 4.1 and when i got my wii it was factory 4.2
wow this saved my life.
