    Something else lol can i play back ups from disc as well as USBHDD backups?

    I dont understand the below PREPARE THE SD CARD?

    Part 2- Install The HomeBrew Channel and Bootmii
    Read the Scam warning and press 1
    It may take a minute or two for the "press 1" to appear- be patient
    Install the HomeBrew Channel
    Install Bootmii as Boot2(boot2 may not be available, IOS installs automatically)
    Prepare the SD-card
    If Step1 fails with error "no vulnerable ios", DO THIS

    You need not worry about it unless you get the error.

    Excellent Guide...I have issues though

    Great guide and I followed it the best I could (completely) and I am using USB Loader GX for managing my backed up games. I could not run Call of Duty (any version) so I looked up if other people had issued and it seemed obvious that I needed to install a new revision (of course I can't find the video now) but it said to download cIOS rev 21 and load through HBC.

    I did this and after I deleted the cIOS from SD card.

    Now when using USB Loader GX...sometimes when I click on a backed up game it reboots the Wii. And to really tick me off, during gameplay it still freezes.

    Any idea on how to fix this?

    Install the cIOS you had before (this guide tells you what cIOS it installs, read it).

    Also if you read the black ops guide you would know that because you followed this guide all you had to do was set the game to load with IOS250 or IOS224 and it would have worked.

    Use Cfg USB Loader not GX.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Ca

    I'm in the exact same boat and am hoping to use the Indiana Jones method. I got a red wii for Christmas and being an idiot and not thinking about hacking it, I updated to 4.3u. I'm hoping I can do this and could really use some "Non-greekification" of the stuff that XMariner asked about as well. I've ordered a Wode jukebox and would really like to install Wodeflow and a bunch of other stuff but a lot of this is greek to me as well.

I know all too well how unappreciative people can be sometimes as a former mod of some other type of forums similar to this one.. I am not one of those people for the record.

    I just wanted to say that because, I am having a very difficult time following this guide because it does seem to have a lot of information that I don't need and I have trying and trying to wade through it all but I really am beginning to be afraid that if I go any further I'm going to end up bricking, and I so don't want that.

    Ok, so to break it down quickly, I have a brand new black wii with 4.3u os. As far as I can tell that should be all the information that I need to know to get started but I can't even seem to get through the first step!

    Here's where the problem starts for me..Please see my notes in red.. PART 1 FROM MAUIFROGS GUIDE
    Part 1- Launch Hackmii Installer
    "As of hackmii 0.8, ios58 will be install prior to hbc install for all wiis 4.2 and less." (why is this important? This is the 4.3 guide, not the 4.2 and less guide.)
    Below you will find many methods for loading the hackmii installer. Choose the method compatible with your wii. (I don't see one compatible for my wii)
    Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed

    (Don't currently have Homebrew Channel installed)

    4.3u/e- Indiana PWNS or 4.3u/j- Smash Stack

    (Above, Totally Greek to me so prolly not the right one either)
    Option 1- Indiana PWNS - Works with 4.3u/e
    (Greek also)
    Option 2- Smash Stack - Works with 4.3u/j
    (And Greek as well...)


    4.3u/e/j all wiis- use YU-GI-OWNED! or YU-GI-VAH

    (Greek!)


    Other desperate options


    (This option scares me the most)

    None of these options seem right for me.. The first one would make the most sense, but it says "Softmod with Homebrew Installed". this would leave me thinking that I already have to have homebrew installed, which I don't because this is a virgin. And I don't wan to install homebrew channel because step one says to lauch hackmii installer! I am sorry if maybe I am not reading this guide properly and usually I am great at following these types of instructions. The rest of the guide seems pretty straight forward. I just need help getting past this first part. Any help would be sooo appreciated!! Thanks! Sorry for being a dumbass cause I'm sure I'm missing something stupid, but I've read and read and read, and I just don't get it.
    One last thing. I have a lexar 2gb SD card, and I unzipped the files from the first option but when I insert the card in the wii and go to the SD card menu, there doesn't appear to be any files on the card. I do know that the card works because I use it in my digital camera. I formatted the card in fat32. Was that the right format? Is there something there I'm missing as well? Sorry so many questions. I would reaally appreciated some help though to simplify things.

    Following this guide is a lot easier then it seems.. if you take your time and tread carefully you'll be through it in no time with no issues..

    Is there a glossary somewhere that tells me what a wad is and explains all the technical jargon? I can follow instructions taking my time, I'm just scared of wrecking the wii because of the update to 4.3u or because I don't understand some of the technical terms. Is it really easier than it sounds? Because it sounds hard, lol.

    You can find it on google, but wads is for creating channels if I'm not mistaking.

    Below you will find many methods for loading the hackmii installer. Choose the method compatible with your wii. (I don't see one compatible for my wii)If it's american and a 4.3 then it's the 4.3u

    (Don't currently have Homebrew Channel installed)

    4.3u/e- Indiana PWNS or 4.3u/j- Smash Stack

    (Above, Totally Greek to me so prolly not the right one either)I used smash stack which you need the game "Super Smash Brothers Brawl"(SSBB) to do.
    Option 1- Indiana PWNS - Works with 4.3u/e
    (Greek also)
    Option 2- Smash Stack - Works with 4.3u/j
    (And Greek as well...)Option 2- Smash Stack - Works with 4.3u/j
    -Load SSBB ntsc, with sd-card removed, make a save file if asked
    -Go to the stage builder, delete all custom stages found, exit the stage builder
    -Exit all the way back to the main SSBB menu
    -Insert SD-CARD, Go back to the stage builder
    -HackMii Installer loads
    Jap NTSC-J wiis, use this file- Hackmii_0.8-SS-J.zip
    4.3u/e/j all wiis- use YU-GI-OWNED! or YU-GI-VAH
    Other desperate options
    Part 2- Install The HomeBrew Channel and Bootmii

    (This option scares me the most)
    A 2gb SanDisk sd card is your best bet.
