I'm slightly confused;
The guide says to install the patched 4.1 system menu, from a 4.3 wii, so presumably a downgrade, but then the next line it talks about ios update? Whats the update for, (from what, to what) or is it just updating the ioss (plural?) downgraded in the 4.1 system menu? So basically, what does the update do?
Last thing, just before I hit order, it is Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga ?
This installs a version patched SM, which I recommend. If this bothers you, don't do it.
If updating IOS, Select "IOS-Update" -Press A

Thanks Bubba, will have a look when i get in.
Up until 5 days ago, I thought of myself as competent when it came to video games, computers, coding, etc. I have been trying to do what this guide for weeks now.
I was lost, and was trying to figure out this guide for the last 2 days. Maybe it's showing my age, but i grew up when Pong was sold in stores, and the cutting edge in video games was the Commodore 64, and Apple IIgs, Atari 2600, intellivision, and ColecoVision...a time when things were less complicated.
As being a relatively new Wii owner, I was having to start from scratch and learn the ins and outs of it.
I haven't had a chance to read all 275 pages in the thread, so this may have already been done, but where/who can I send suggestions to improve this guide, so it's not so frustrating for us geezers. If you have done this before, then the guide is perfect, but if you haven't, you need to learn a whole new nomenclature and figure out what everything is. Before the Wii, the last game consoles I owned was the N64 and Genesis, so most of the terms I had no idea what they mean, and had spend quite a few hours trying to learn as much as I can from other sites/forums.
As I said, if you have done this before, the guide on the 1st page makes absolute sense, but not if this is your first time. If I had screen Shots and/or video to see how to do it properly, it would have saved hours of frustration. As well as a little more detail to the guide.
For Example, when I got to the BootMii menu, my remote came "out of sync" with the console, and I couldn't figure out why. I put new batteries in, tried and failed to sync all 8 of my remotes while on the BootMii menu. It wasn't till my frustration level was high that I plugged my GC controller in, and I could use that. I keep on trying to find answers. I would reboot the Wii, resync all controllers, but again all the remotes came out of sync. That's when I realized that had this been mentioned that you can't use the remotes while on the BootMii menu, that would have saved a lot of frustration trying to resync my remotes, sync them, and have them come out sync again.
More than likely, this had been mentions in the 275 pages I haven't had a chance to read, and if this same topic as been covered many times before, then please forgive my "noobishness".
Awesome tutorial worked flawlessly.
I followed the guide and everything went fine until this section.
Part 3- Install Priiloader (brick protection, you need this)
You should be in the Homebrew Channel
Priiloader 0.6 Installer will load
Read the warning- Press +/A to install
When finished the HBC should load. If the wii freazes, hold the power down for 10sec.
Hold reset and boot wii while holding reset- priiloader will load
If MMM loads at boot, delete sd:\bootmii from your sd card
Select "System Menu Hacks"- Press A
Enable any hacks you like. I suggest-
"Block Disk Updates", "Block Online Updates", "Remove Diagnostic Disc Check", "Move Disc Channel"
If you don't know what the hack does- you don't need it.
Select Save settings -Press A
Press B to go back to the main screen
Your wii should now block Disk updates and online updates, you can move the disc channel and if you like autoboot the usbloader
I am unable to activate the update blocks. Priiloader launched, I read the warning, pressed +/A and Homebrew loaded. I did not get the System Menu Hacks, so I was unable to activate the update blockers.
I continued to finish the guide (chapter 3 the apps) everything seems to be ok. I've loaded some apps from HBC with no problem. I have not tried loading anything from USB yet.
My question is should I go back to part 3 Install Priiloader and redo from there?
I followed the guide but I cannot get cIOS249-v17.wad to install on my 4.3U Wii. I tried over and over and this is the only one which wont install.
Can I continue on without installing this WAD? Any ideas of how I can get this to install? And how necessary is this WAD?
Everything up until now completed without any problems.
