I was getting errors with neogamma, then when i ran wad manager it wouldn't allow me to install/uninstall things. I figured obviously it was because of the update.

    So basically I have all my stuff... i was confused by the guide...

    "If you already have a softmod with HBC installed, you can update your softmod with this guide.
    Backup and Format your sd-card
    Extract
    MMM-58-61.zip to sd:\
    Load the HomeBrew Channel
    Launch the
    hackmii_installer_v0.8
    Hackmii Installer Loads"


    I understand it's telling me to Update/install HBC and Bootmii... though I have the latest one...
    but what about the WADs in the folder IOS58-64-v6175 and IOS61-64-v5661...
    Do I just run MMM and install them and I'm done or do I Just install the WADs from the ModPackAnyWii Wad folder, or both?

    Can I just use MMM from HBC or do I HAVE to run it from bootmii ? "Start HBC, press [HOME], Launch Bootmii"

    *EDIT* I figured it out.

    I got it all working and can run my backups... But I cannot get Priiloader to install...
    It gives me an es_identify failed...

    *edit* I just realized that I installed the IOS236 Installer v4 and i had the GC memory card in at all times :X , uninstalled the wads that were not CIOS (i dont mind going into the HBC )

    also whats weird is the System menu now shows the backup as a real game in the menu...
    so i don't even need neogamma?


    also i bet this is asked a million times but, is going online with Backups and the netflix channel (installed from a wad) possibly damaging ?

    I couldn't even get past step 2. I am distraught.

    My system: 3.3k

    Chapter 1:
    Part 1:
    I already had Homebrew Channel so I didn't install it again.
    I did the hackmii installer and it worked fine.

    Part 2:
    I already had HBC so skipped the install.
    Then I tried installing Bootmii (boot2 wasn't an option like the guide said but had IOS) so I clicked install but it said I couldn't install boot2 as I had boot1. I installed as I thought it was still okay. It installed and Bootmii screen loads up with the four icons (Wii Menu, HBC, settings, SD card) but it freezes and I can't do anything. The remote works but nothing happens. I pressed every button on my remote and nothing happened.

    I don't want to continue until I know it is okay to. So should I reinstall HBC?

    Or should I make a NAND backup online? seeing as I can't install Bootmii properly.

    Cheers,
    Big Tex

    EDIT: I should have read further through the posts. I read on page 4 that I just had to use the Power/Reset buttons on the console. Sorry about that and hopefully I don't run into any troubles later on (currently creating NAND backup).

    If you ever come to Korea, you would be handsomely rewarded for your great work! If I had a working credit card, I would definitely donate to this site however my bank sucks and won't send me a new one due to being overseas (mine is expired).

    Work with 4.3 u? And quick questions so I don't screw up!

    I've never softmodded before, but this is the guide I was going to use. But alot of people seem to have questions, and on steps and things I don't see in the tutorial "chapters" (such as installing Ios' but in the tutorial which I only see installing wads, do these install automatically?).

    It says in the tutorial that this works with 4.3u.. anybody have complete success with 4.3u and or run into problems?

    Do I need to be connected to the internet to complete the tutorial?

    Its recommended to format external hard drive to Fat32, does WBFS Manager work with that, or am I going to have to use something else to put the games on?

    This comes with Configurable USB Loader will I need more than that (wiiflow neogamma, ext)? And do these conflict with each other at all?

    Any extra things (being a noob) following this tutorial that I might run into? And what's the percentages on bricking my system?

    Sorry for so many questions, but I want to be sure. THANNKS!

    Oh and as for the optional extra brick protection.. play game, what exactly installs and how do you use that if you do brick?

    THANKS AGAIN!!

    1) yes this guide will work for your 4.3u there is also this guide: for the 4.3 http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...-guide-62.html I used that guide and all is well on my black wii.

    2)No, you can use the guide without internet connection.

    3) if you follow the guide you will have the programs you need to format along other nice apps. FAT32 is preferred but it's all preference. here is a guide here:
    FAT32 Hard Drives - Formatting, Loading, Ripping, Playing

    4)CFG is great... BUT it is all preference what loader you want to use. try them all. from my experience CFG has been the most user friendly and bug free, it's not as pretty but can be. but once again its preference..

    5) There is always a chance to brick your wii.. you shouldnt softmod if you arent sure you can do it. Solution to reduce chance of brick? read read read read! Read the guide through a few times and research what you dont understand.

    6) it's optional. it allows you to exploit a hack without a game in SOME semi brick situations

    ** ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR NAND **

    I bought a refurbished wii and updated it (accidentally) to 4.3u I then found out you could softmod the wii and do all sorts of great things. I read mauifrog's guide to softmod any wii at least a dozen times to make sure i had everything in place, downloaded all the required files, etc. I followed the guide verbatim and the only problem i had was when the screen went out of sync and the diagonal lines appeared at the part where it says to "power on and hold reset". I had to power down and then repeat the process and all worked fine. All is perfect now and the games play so much better loading from cfg usb loader off my external HD. Much easier than trying to burn a disk from an ISO. The point is that reading over and over might seem like a waste of time, but think of how much time you'll waste if you brick the wii and couldn't unbrick it because you didn't read that a NAND backup is required and essential. Just saying, make sure you're confident in your own abilities before you attempt it. Reading is the key. Oh and BTW nice to meet you DigDogg..... i should have introduced myself in the beginning like the site rules say ;-)

    Mauifrog.... or anyone....

    I am a newbie and appreciate the guide. I have found another guide and would like to know if there is a real difference between the two.
    Here it is:

    There seems to be a few different steps and a different .wad pack. I would just follow maui's guide considering the following and success rate. Guides on this site are approved and proven to work. + the support here is unbeatable.
