The best tutorial I've read on hacking the Wii.
Had a 4.3E that had been accidently updated. Followed the instructions & it was good to go again in under 10 minutes.
Many thanks to all involved.
Ok new here, I followed the guide, I used ios236, then wiimod v3.2. From there I went to wad manage. I then see [wiimod] I go ahead and install that. Next I see usbloadergr_unlr.wad. I Install that as well. I then went back to HBC and started usbloader. I still get "USB device not found. Switching to channel list mode"
If I then try to run "usbloader" I get a black screen
What am I doing wrong? The USB was already formatted and has games on it
I downloaded the System Menu-4.1u-449 - USA files and have followed the instructions carefully. Got an error on the 3rd wad file installation. Here is the error:
1 error occured...
Error installing RVL-WiiSystemmenu-v449.wad::
(-1036) Required sysversion(IOS) is not installed.
Try with AHBPROT mode or an IOS with the correct permissions.
Press any key to continue.
Wii Mod: v3.2
System Menu: v3.3U
BootMii boot2v3 installed w/ .nand and .keys backup
I have not powerd off the WII yet and would appreciate advise on how to proceed to fix the issue without bricking.
EDIT: I got confused, never mind that. I see now that you're trying to update menu, which does have 3 WADs to it.
Did you verify md5? If you did, then did you do the entire ModPack (30 wads) and IOS Pack (25 wads, I think) before attempting the menu update?
If you did all that, then try installing the three wads again. If that still fails, maybe someone else has an idea? :)
Thanks for the prompt response cjizzle and llaffer. I had verified the MD5 and 100% ok. cjizzle was correct with the IOS60. I updated that by checking the return codes from another page and that did the trick. I then re-ran the 4.1 wad update and voila, now on system menu 4.1. I did not follow the complete guide from this site as it was previously modded. But I think the next one I will use this guide. Thanks for your support.
