Just nervous about bricking our first Wii, and its brand new.
I did it in about 40mins now I see what you mean. Thanks for a great guide Mauifrog and help from others in the detail.
My HDD works but I think I have configurable USB loader installed on the SD card from chapter 3. If I remove the SD card CFG dont work. Should I change this an install to the HDD or something??
Edit 2 Dont worry, I sussed it. I extracted the chapter 3 files to my USB HDD instead.
Very Pleased so far.

A note for those trying to use bootmii to backup your nand:
"In the Homebrew Channel press the home button on your Wiimote and select Launch Bootmii.
If at this stage your Wiimote stops working to navigate the menus you need to use the buttons at the front of your Wii, or use a Gamecube controller.
The power button allows you to toggle through the menus so you can highlight which option you want. And the reset button selects it.
So, press the power button until you hover over the settings icon, and then press reset".
Thanks to kokhwee for this much needed info!

sure no problem. please try to use the edit button if you want to add informations, avoid double/triple posting. will clean up your posts/merge some
bootmii has never had wiimote support, hence the description press power power, reset etc etc., meant are always the buttons on the console.
cu, enjoy your modded wii.
Maybe these have all been discussed already but the thread is over 200 pages so I have a few questions as I am about to follow this guide.
1. Priiloader blocks updates from discs and the internet right? So I can still play games that came with the console from the disc? (I heard that Metroid Prime Trilogy has had some problems with usb-loader, plus I wanted to have it for real, and Mario Kart Wii came with the console)
1b. Does this mean it's perfectly safe to be connected to the internet? If not it's perfectly fine with me but it's good to know.
2. Is there anything I should look out for? (read: newbie mistakes that can brick or otherwise damage the console)
3. Is it safe to assume Nintendo will try to crack through the priiloader defenses with any future or just-released games, for example Skyward Sword or Donkey Kong Country Returns? (i.e. have updates that slip through)
Thanks in advance, great site.
So this means you will not do your part and read, you just want it handed to you?Maybe these have all been discussed already but the thread is over 200 pages so I have a few questions as I am about to follow this guide.
i have read many pages in this thread but not all so if someone has previously had this issue i apologize.
system is 4.3u
im stuck at the beginning of chapter 2. with the modpack anywii files on sd card when i do this
Part 1- Wad Installs
Start HBC, press [HOME], Launch Bootmii
Multi-Mod Manager Starts (via cboot2)
i get a blank black screen that does nothing.
using the alternative method again with correct files on sd card (IOS236-MMM-INSTALLER.zip)
IOS236 Installer v4 install crashes every time. i cannot continue.
does anyone have any suggestions for me
But I've tried the search function and excuse me but I would think a simple yes or no answer possibly including a link or minimal information (which would have taken just about the same space as your reply) would be less of a hassle than reading through 200+ pages of discussion.
