    Thanks! I hacked my own Wii back in the days of Bannerbomb, and this was a piece of cake for helping my friend on 4.3. Your guides are always amazingly concise. If you ever wanna teach the Android forums how to write guides like these, well, you should :-P

    I have a quick question about BootMii/Letterbomb. This is my first time softmodding a wii, and I want to install and run *everything* off of the USB hard drive. However, reading the BootMii SD card compatibility list, a lot of cards are mentioned as taking "a long time to boot" or "failing 80% of the time." Following this guide, do I need to keep booting with the SD card in after completing the process, or since BootMii is now stored as a cIOS and Priiloader is installed can I remove the SD card and store whatever apps/game backups/homebrew I want on the USB Hard drive?

    After the initial installation of everything, you can run most things from the USB drive, but not all. BootMii doesn't work from a USB, sysCheck doesn't either, nor BrawlStats, etc. It's a lot easier to just buy an SD card (Sandisk 2GiB is recommended) and dedicate it to the Wii.

    Thanks for the clarification. However, once BootMii is installed as a cIOS, don't I not need to boot it off the SD again unless I somehow brick my wii? In that case I could just restore my backup of bootmii and my NAND to the SD card, unbrick my wii, and go back to being a happy camper, right? I just hate to have an SD card sitting around doing literally nothing for 99% of its life.

    @Shift_Lock It's not so much about the money, I just want to fully understand exactly whats going on with the process. The guides give a great breakdown of the how, but they're a little short on the what and why. I'd hate to run around all night looking to buy a reportedly compatible SD card only to find out I truly don't need it. If I can just use the one in my camera and then put it back in my camera when i'm done, it's easier for me, but if there's really a solid reason why I need that card to stay in my Wii 24/7 that i'm just not understanding, then I have no problem doing that.

    Well you dont have to use it all the time .. you need one for the mod.. then after modding you can use some apps with usb. Most use the sd for apps and loaders as most apps and loaders are compatible with sd, however that is not the case with usb. it will likely be soon though as many apps are being updated with full usb support.

    I have softmoded my Wii using the previous revision of Mauifrog guide. And have successfully updated to the new CIOS Pack V5. I am about to update Priiloader 0.6 to 0.7 but want to get some clarification before I get started.

    Do I need to format my SD Card and put the latest CIOS Pack V5 which included Priiloader 0.7 to update to Priiloader 0.7? Or I should just copy the latest Priiloader app into my current SD Card and load it through HBC and the installation will override v0.6? and if I have hacks already enabled on v0.6 do I need to re-enable them after the installation of v 0.7? or I need to disable all the hacks before the update then re-enabling them again?

    Thanks in advance.

    You should be fine just putting the app in the SD card and installing over the old version. I've done that like 3 times with no problems. And you won't have to re-enable any hacks. Although some might change, so you should still check the hacks menu after the install.

    Thanks dniMretsaM, I had some bad experience with Priiloader. Just want to be on the safe side. Glad that you have tried and it works. I'll give it a shot.

    sorry to insist on this, but does anyone know why my wii doesn't respond to bannerbomb in my formatted sd card? i've tried two different cards, both with nothing on the channels list and no popping up message...
