    That would allready be installed at this point and accessed as mauifrog stated.

    Not an app that would be found on the sd card after following the guide and putting the last pack of apps onto it. Rather installed into the wii console's nand.

    Thanks MauiFrog, and I really appreciated your guide BTW.

    My frustration was that as I read through the guide, it was clear that partitioning w/ FAT was the better alternative. In doing some additional reading, it looks like WBFS was/is the "old" way to do it. I never got from your note in the guide (which I read, re-read, and re-read about 10x's to make sure I wasn't missing something):

    The disc loads well with neogamma r8 running cios38-r17 via disc or wbfs usb.

    that other methods don't appear to work. My $.02 is to change that to something with much stronger language such as:

    "The only way that the disc seems to load is with neogamma r8 running cios38-r17 via disc or wbfs usb."

    The other thing that I would have at minimum added to the guide when discussing the formatting option of the storage HDD is that if you have a decent sized HDD - say anything over 100GB anyway, to create at least a small partition for explicitly this purpose. It's a real PIA to have to move everything off the HDD once it's formatted as FAT or FAT32, create a small partition to keep natively WBFS, and then reformatting and moving everything back. Yeah, there are tools to re-partion on the fly, but I've never had great luck with them.

    Bottom line is - thank you. However, for me at least - those changes would have saved me a LOT of time and frustration. I just don't want to see anyone else struggle w/ the same things and reading through all 200 pages (we're almost there) to get those subtle nuances isn't practical.

    I had some issue initially getting Priiloader to boot. You have to:

    1. Turn off the Wii
    2. Push the power button to turn the Wii on and then release it.
    3. Now hold down the reset button until you see Priiloader bootup.

    Try it a few times and if you followed MauiFrog's guide, it'll load.

    Where is the link to install the Homebrew channel? Why do I keep getting the 004 error? I amd doing the lego indiana jones one with my kids, we spent an hour and are getting nowhere. help.
    Error 004 means your not following the guide. You are trying to load the sd card, this is not right. You need to load data management, savegames- not channels.

    I did that step by step 5 times and I don't think whatever is supposed to happen does....
    Option 1- Indiana PWNS - Works with 4.3u/e
    -Play Lego Indiana Jones Original. Start a new game, then exit to System Menu.
    -Go to wii settings, data management, save games, wii, SD
    -Click SD, copy Indiana PWNS for your region
    -Play Lego Indiana Jones original, load save game slot 1
    -
    When the game loads, you will be in Barnett College. Walk to the Art Room (through the Courtyard), approach the left character on the podium. When it zooms on him, choose the switch to option (two silhouettes, staggered, with an arrow pointing between them).

    After this step the game just continues......what is supposed to happen? I also tried it with different 1 GB SD cards. and a few different tutorials all with no luck. I did update my Wii last week could that be a problem?

    Any thoughts on this? I really did search all over this and other websites and nothing solves the problem. I'd really appreciate any advice.

    I checked the link in the guide on what to do if that happens and followed every instruction with the same result. I tried loading IOS 58 & 61. I even tried some of the older methods using DOP-Mii. No matter what I do, I always get that error when installing HBC.

    It is a vigin Wii that's never been modded running 4.1. Also, I'm not sure if this makes a difference, but it's one of the first model Wii's purchased when it was first released.

    Could anyone help?

    I bought a red Wii last night at walmart, I got the wii and a $75 gift card for $199, good deal. I also bought a game to go with it, Lego Indiana Jones. I had to get it softmodded for Christmas morning. I followed this guide and all went well, until I had to decide if I wanted to downgrade to 4.1, I was at a loss but figured 4.3 has no offerings. So, I downgraded to 4.1, the guide went well and rather quickly.

    Have you tried all of the different versions of bannerbomb for system menu 4.1?
