Ok I have read through the Softmod ANY Wii guide a couple times and I want to make sure I have everything correct and am not missing anything before I start blowing away my Wii. I am upgrading from 4.1 to 4.3 to have all of the available IOS and cIOS. I do not have a NAND backup either.
According to the guide, I have a pre-modded wii with unknown source of instructions, I am not sure if I have a NAND backup either, so I need to follow CH 1, 2, & 3
Since I have an already softmodded wii with Homebrew Channel already installed, I can following these steps
Extract WiiMod-58-61_Hackmii_1.1.0 to sd:\
Load the HomeBrew Channel
Launch WiiMod - WiiMod will load
-Select Wad Manager -Press A
-Press 1, -press A -Install all wads
-IOS58 and IOS61 will install
-Press "any button" to continue
-Exit WiiMod to go back to the Homebrew Channel
-Select hackmii_installer_v1.0 - Press A to Launch
-Hackmii Installer Loads
Once Hackmii loads will installing HomeBrew Channel and Bootmii from the SD overwrite the existing? Will this mess anything up? Do I need to do a Letterbomb or any disc exploit?
Then I can prepare the SD card.
I can make a NAND Backup
- launching HBC > Home > Bootmii
- Press buttons on Wii - Power, Power, Power, Reset, Reset
- Exit to HBC after backup
- Copy the files to my PC
Download Modpack + IOS Update + RVL-Shopping-v21 and extract to SD card
Launch Wiimod > Wad Manager > Press 1 > Press A > Make sure its complete without errors
Select shop channel v21 > Press A > RVL-Shopping v21 > Press A > Press A to install > Press B to go back to WADs
Select IOS-Update > Press A > Press 1 to install Wads > Press A
If I am already on System Menu 4.1 will I need to follow the Downgrade to/Upgrade to/ Install System Menu v4.1 steps?
Install beta Priiloader
Depending on Wiimote I need to install either 0.7 or 0.8 beta 4
Homebrew Channel > Priiloader > Press +/A
HBC should load > Hold Reset > System Hacks > Block updates/Remove disc check/move disc channel
Change boot option
Format SD > Extract AP-V4
If I followed everything correctly, I should be on System Menu 4.3u with all cIOS & IOS to be completely current until another big patch or whatever.
Did I leave out a step at all?
Is it possible to move everything from my wii, like purchased WiiWare to my USB drive and launch them from the USB Drive?
