    Hi
    I finally purchased a used Wii. I intended to follow this guide but to my pleasant surprise the console
    already had Homebrew Channel installed. These are the stats...

    System Menu 4.1U

    Homebrew 1.0.5 IOS 36 v12.22

    NeoGamma R7 IOS 249 (Rev 14)

    The previous owner said that the NeoGamma channel can play copied games on the DVD.
    However, my intention is to play games using USB Flash Drive.

    So how should I now continue through this guide? Or is there any shortcut to directly
    use USB Loader somehow? (without bricking the console)

    -------
    When I try launching BootMii thru homebrew (for NAND backup), the big blue light encircling the DVD tray keeps
    on flashing (Is that because there is no SD card present at the moment?)

    Also pressing 1 on the HBC brings up a menu. If a Flash Drive is inserted, the "USB Options" is ungreyed but it doesnt do anything. Tried Flash Drive formatted in FAT32, NTFS & WBFS.
    -------


    Please guide.
    Thank you.

    That's an outdated softmod. Follow the guide --- start at the spoiler entitled, "Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed" as found in Chapter 1 Part 1.

    Is there a way to check if my current SDHC card would work on the console with respect to this guide ?

    SDHC cards are not supported for the modding process. They can be used afterwards but during the process you'll need a standard 2gb SD card.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    Worst case scenario. Let's say I brick the Wii trying to follow this guide (I mess up, power goes off...etc).
    Does it mean the console is now a Paperweight or can a professional repair-person get it back?
    In short, is there any chance that a mess-up can permanently damage the console?

    There's always the risk, that's why we say to follow the guide exactly. Worst case scenario if you brick without have Priiloader or BootMii as boot2 you'll have to find a NAND programmer and see if they can help you. Best to avoid destroying it.

    Even if I try to follow the guide to the T, what I can't control is the unreliable Power Supply at my place.
    Will you please check out my post #17241 on this page & let me know if I can simply install USB Loader
    so as to play games from Flash Drive & USB HDD?

    @Crisender:

    I've answered your preliminary question, and SNES has answered several of your questions. That's an OUTDATED softmod. You won't be able to do what you're wanting to do without updating your softmod. Example: you lack IOS 58. Why is that relevant? That one's responsible for USB2.0 speeds. Either do the guide as instructed (or have someone do it, since you seem too hesitant to do so yourself), or move on.

    Okay. Does this guide need to be completed in one go? Can you please identify the points where it can be done in parts?
    How much time does it take to complete each part (just wanted to know if the UPS, if the need arises, can hold up).

    @Crisender:

    The guide you're posting this in... the guide actually says read the entire guide three times before undertaking it. It should be pretty apparent if you did indeed do as the guide instructs (which thus far, you've amply demonstrated you haven't bothered to do so).

    To answer your one question: the longest step or time-involved is making the NAND backup. The rest is fairly quick. If you lose power making a NAND backup, nothing bad would happen to your Wii.
