    Hey there.

    Thanks for putting together this how-to guide. It was very useful!

    I've been having some problems connecting to the internet after installing the softmod, however. Before updating, I was able to go online and do pretty much whatever. Now that I've installed the mod I can't connect to the internet at all. I followed the instructions by line when installing the softmod, so I don't know exactly where the issue comes into play. None of my settings have changed on my router, and just in case I re-input the connection settings on my wii.

    Is this a common problem with an easy solution? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Quit being tight, get a 2gb one. You can't backup your NAND with a 512mb card, and anymore that's considered compulsory/required.

    Full backup of 4.3 mod with nand for me was 530mb, so It would be just about possible if you lifted apps of in between but I would'nt go there. although that would make a 1GB suffiient though?

    Just ordered our 1st Wii, (a new black one).
    The more I read this guide and the subsequent posts the more confident i get.
    Since I have never had a Wii before, I have a couple of questions before it arrives and i start the mod...
    1) What are the preliminary things I need to do when I set up the Wii for the first time? Setting up the remotes is an obvious one and checking which sys menu it has shipped with too but I believe it can connect to my wifi, do I need the internet connection up and running to perform any elements of the softmod? Is there anything else I don't realise.

    2) It would be ideal if I could understand exactly how my interface / menu looks and works to access/play games on the usb hdd (and also putting back-ups on the HDD from disc). I understand I will have CFG by the end of it and priiloader should help stop any updates being installed by the kids but you see, it's the kids that will mainly be using this wi. Without actually having done the mod its difficult for me to understand how simple choosing a game from the hdd will be etc. Should I be looking to set up CFG so that it just goes straight to my HDD games list, but I would still be able to get to other settings & admin things when needed or am i talking nonsense?
    I am also thinking there might be a rare occasion when the kids friends bring some game round and they want to put it in the wii and play it like normal. How does that pan out with the softmod installed?
    Thanks.

    Can I use a SDHC for this? I have a micro SD card and a SD adapter(that's a SDHC, right?) well, i'm not sure if that's what a SDHC is or not, but that's what i have. can i use that instead of a standard SD card?

    No, it will likely fail on either BootMii, wad manager, or similar. Use what is specified. Post in the INTRODUCTIONS section of the site as well, something first-timers are supposed to do per site rules.

    You can use priiloader to autoboot into cfg usbloader. Then if you need to get to the wii settings, just load priiloader and load the system menu. There are other methods if you plan to do it a lot, but for myself booting to cfg is just fine. It is also easy to use, so your kids will have no issue. When you get your wii, sync the wiimotes, setup the network, disable wiiconnect24 and standby mode. Then do the guide.

    I am at chapter 2 and each time I format my 2gb sd card that is not sdhc it works. But then I copy the anymod-hack on it and verify with md5summer. It works and then I put it in the wii as directed here. When I hit bootmii I get a black screen and the wii disc reader blinks blue continuously. I read that this means bootmii doesn't read the sd card. So I was able to safely shut it down and put the sd card back in computer. The card only had apps left and everything else was deleted. After repeated attempts of reformatting and copying the any-mod hack file every time I pull out the sd card only the app file remains and everything else is gone. I did use the recommended formatter and everything seems to check out until I disconnect the sd card. I also used safely remove incase that would help but still nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Edit :The files now copied this time around and are staying. But bootmii still not reading. It did before though for the first chapter of this tut.

    OK it eventually worked after using another computer lol
