    Hi,
    I'm getting stuck when trying to run the hackmii installer.
    I have a 2gb regular SD card that's formatted to FAT32 (have used windows default format tool as well as the panasonic) and have triple checked to make sure the region and MAC address are correct on the letterbomb website when compiling the installer.
    Everytime I load it brings me to the scam warning screen and the controller turns off.. the "Press 1 to continue" shows up shortly after but I can't press anything.

    1.could some please tell me if softmodding will lose game saves already on the wii?.

    2. does following this guide on a wii with system menu 4.3(E) downgrade your wii to system menu 4.1? I ask because under the heading "part 1 wad installs" it says to
    "Select the folder "System Menu 4.1" -press A.................
    Press (1) to "Install all Wads" – Press A
    3 wads should install without error
    "Press any button to continue"
    Be sure all 3 wads install, very important"
    and also where it says
    This installs a version patched SM, which I recommend. If this bothers you, don't do it." I'm a bit worried about why it would bother me (!) and what the alternative is - ie: do not install particular wads?

    You can try it but it may fail on bootmii. If you start getting errors in this area then try another sd card.

    Download this pack ---> http://www.wiihacks.com/redirect-to/...ackmii Fix.rar

    1 - Format your SD card and extract the contents to your sd card.

    2 - Go to your originally downloaded LetterBomb pack on your computer and copy the --->Title Folder<---

    3 - Now go to the files on your sd card and paste the Title Folder on to the root of the SD card.. It will ask if you want to overwrite. Hit YES.

    4 - Put SD card back in to Wii and try the letterbomb exploit again - Multi Mod Manager will load...

    Now go from Part 2 of this guide... http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-guides-tutorials-only/29080-hackmii-fix-no-vulnerable-ios-black-screen-scam-freeze.html#post182546

    i'm done with the softmod guide but i want to check my ARC settings,


    1. is it alright if I just copy the ARC files on my sd card without reformatting it? (currently it has the app pack & some saved games)


    2. is it okay if I launch ARC again to check settings?


    3. is it okay if I do the following steps:
    a) Get AnyRegion Changer
    b) Run AnyRegion Changer from the Homebrew Channel and change your Shop Channel region to New zealand.
    c) Go to the Shop Channel and remove your account.
    d) Run AnyRegion Changer again and switch your Shop Channel region back to United States
    e) Go to the Shop Channel and set up a new account.


    will all 3 not result to wii brick?


    to know my problem click: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tml#post633212


    thank you! i really need the shop channel to work.
    Its a HB app so you should be fine...

    It worked a treat after I missed a vital press of the 'A' button despite reading the required 3 times!!

    One question though, can you still play games on-line once you've backed them up to the Hard Drive? ie Mario Kart

    Read the spoiler titled this --> Cios FAQ- What this mod installs

    Thank you again for your reply. I think I will then just go with the recommended and install the patched/downgraded system menu 4.1 v544##. Just wondering though if not having system menu 4.3 when i
    put in an original disk with a higher system menu update on it will the wii prompt me to update or will it recognise it has the crrent ios(es) and not prompt?

    Another question I have now (I would rather ask before i attempt my softmod than when i muck it up!)
    I need the follow explanation under Part 3- Make A NAND Backup (NOT Optional, do this,) padded out a bit.
    It says "load HBC, press -HOME-, launch Bootmii
    Make a nand backup
    Press Power, Power, Power, Reset, Reset (or use gc-controller)
    Power = Right, Eject = Left, Reset = Select
    Once the backup is complete, exit bootmii to HBC"

    1. does this mean press the minus button on the wiimote or is there a spot within the HBC that has a Home button that allows me to launch bootmi (sorry I know this is a dumb one!)
    2.I do not have game cube controller so am I right that I basically press the power off on the wii and then off again then while it is off press reset twice? Does this actually turn the wii off and
    on etc or do these buttons have a different function once Bootmii is launched? I think that what the guide is saying here "Power = Right, Eject = Left, Reset = Select".
    3. given the dumbness of my above question can anyone direct me to a accurate utube video that actually shows this process (I must be a visual learner) as if I see it this will give me more
    confidence while I'm doing it that its going right?
    Thanks for reading this far!!!
