    Thank you kindly for the swift reply. I figured it probably meant something like that, but it says "If you have not updated this channel since Sept. 2010, you need this!" Maybe it should be updated to say that you only need it if you plan to use the shopping channel.

    If you never use Wii Shop, then it doesn't matter if you update it or not.
    Thank you kindly for the swift reply. There are 30 wads in the root folder that all get installed at the same time. Then it says you can also install the 25 wads in the IOS folder if you want to update that too. But the shopping channel wad is in another folder and it doesn't tell you to install it. Maybe it should, if that's what you're supposed to do.

    So, after intalling hackmii, and running it and bootmii, etc, the next step in installing the modpack, do you reformat that original sd card, and put the files on there, or do you just add them to the original installation files? Also, which SD card or files stays in the wii, once all the modding is done?
    One last thing, there is the part that says to downgrade to system menu v4.1, is that the same number as the wii version I have 4.3u, meaning I should downgrade my system menu? Or can I just leave that part and skip that step? Some terms are confusing me a little.

    Thanks

    I am no expert, but I think I can help since just finished softmodding.

    I don't think it matters if you reformat the card or not. I left the card as it was and added the new files to it, so go ahead and do that.

    Chapter 3 says you leave an SD card in the Wii that contains the apps you wanna use, but I don't think it's very important.

    I didn't downgrade, since it said that part is optional and I don't wanna risk Skyward Sword not working since it said I needed the newest version to run the game. No, 4.1 is not the same as 4.3 and yes, you can leave that part skip that step. The u at the end means it's a USA Wii.

    I followed your guide down to the nail and everything installed perfectly, no errors whatsoever. I followed every thing you had to say as well as taking in all the recommendations you mentioned.

    Now this is where I am stumped. I went to load a backup of my Wii game following your recommended guide here:http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...ide-fat32.html

    Everything goes well on the PC, but when I go to the Wii and open up USB Loader GX and launch my Wii backup I get this error:

    wii error 001 unauthorized device detected

    What is the problem here and what can I do to fix this? Google hasn't helped because it it is referring to a whole heap of Softmod's and I can't find one for yours.

    Cheers

    Just follow the guide to the letter, backup whatever you are asked to, and format whenever told, that way you can't go wrong.

    And there are disadvantages of being on 4.3 menu so go to 4.1 like the guide suggests too, cutting corners will not help at all.

    None of the USB loaders works

    UPDATE (SOLVED?): I used Wiithon to format the flash drive in WBFS and it seems to be working just fine now. The game installation from disc to loader is chugging along at about 3000KB/s. So Fat32 got hung up on each device, but WBFS works fine. Could it be my Wii hardware (it's a first generation machine).

    ===

    I've completed the installation instructions without issue and now I come to the final step: trying to install games from my discs. I've tried Modern Warfare 3 and Goldeneye 007, and each game's installation hangs at less than 1.0%. I thought it was a bad hard drive since I'd had trouble with the device in the past, but I bought a 32GB Sandisk flash drive and the very same issue, with each game hanging at about the same point, occurs on this drive as well.

    The remote and cursor are still responsive, but clicking cancel has no effect andI have to hold the power button for several seconds to restart. When I check the drive on my computer, it just has empty *.tmp files for the games I've tried to install.

    Any ideas?

    I have 4.3U so I skipped the installation of ios58 and 61 (ch.1, pt. 1) and the 25 ios wads (ch. 2, pt. 1). I also didn't downgrade to 4.1 since that was optional. Other than that I did everything by the letter.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for this wonderful guide. I had originally followed another outdated guide from another site but then found this guide and followed it step by step from beginning to end with no issues and everything is running fine. Very easy to understand and follow. I just have 3 questions before I do anything else.

    1. In Chapter 2 it says,
    If you would like to update your Wii IOS:
    Download
    IOS Update.zip (If you are on a System Menu version other than 4.3, you need this!)
    Extract the IOS Update directly to your sd card
    Overwrite files if asked
    I was already on 4.3U but decided to do this anyway. Then I downgraded to 4.1U as per Chapter 2, Part 1. Since now I am technically back on System Menu 4.1 do I need to redo the IOS Update for 4.3 or did the downgrade to 4.1U not touch those updated IOSes?

    2. I installed Priiloader as per Chapter 2, Part 2 and enabled the recommended hacks and everything seems to work fine. At the end of Part 2 is says,
    For a detailed guide on how to use Priiloader, look HERE.
    So I checked out that thread and I read in the Priiloader installation section there that is said,
    - Downoad the hacks for priiloader from here hacks_hash.zip
    - Extract the file and put the hacks_hash.ini file in the "priiloader" folder.

    SD card structure:
    SD:/apps/priiloader/hacks_hash.ini

    Your priiloader files should look like this.
    I don't have a priiloader folder in my apps folder or a hacks_hash.ini file. Like I said, Priiloader seems to working fine for me but I was wondering if it was necessary for me to do that step from the Priiloader thread.

    3. The guide doesn't mention anything about downloading and installing Dios Mios to play GameCube games from a USB Loader. Does following this guide already do this or do I have to install it myself following the Dios Mios v2.0 and v2.2 guide here? And if I do have to follow that guide, which one should I install. I hear different things about Dios Mios Lite, Dios Mios 2.0 and Dios Mios 2.2.

    Thanks again for everyone's time and effort and willingness to help others making this site my goto site for anything Wii related. If there is anything I can do to give back to the community, please let me know and I will give it my best shot.

    Wasn't planning on cutting corners. It says the downgrade is optional. So I leave it at 4.3 to use letter bomb then downgrade to 4.1. Is that so I can install bootmii as boot2 instead of ios?
    Just checked my brothers and he is still running 4.3 modded. Is the only advantage to downgrading brick protection? And will newer games need 4.3 to run?

    Last question for now as I still am not clear. When I hooked the wii up it wanted to update even though it's on 4.3. Is it okay to update before modding even though it says to not update from Nintendo. If I do it first will the hack still work? I just want any non game related updates etc before modding.
    Thanks again.

    4.3 Does not offer any benefits at all.
    It actually took away the ability of using the bannerbomb and installing the HBC.

    No, installing system menu 4.1 will not give you the option of installing bootmii as boot2.
    Installing bootmii as boot2 or Ios depends on the system, not the system menu.

    No, don't update...your going to mod your wii and will be installing all original ios's and cios's needed etc.
    Yes, if you do , it will still be hackable.
