Help! I'm a newbie & there are several things I don't understand....
I have looked at the tutorials & read until my head is about to explode! The Mauifrog guide/tutorial says to Read the guide at least 3 times! It doesn't matter how many times I read it, it doesn't make sense if you don't know what the terms mean or how to do what is asked of you in the first place! I clicked on that one because somewhere on this site someone said that the Mauifrog post had more info for those less experienced. Less experienced that who?? A computer programmer? HUH?
Well, it says "Have 350 free blocks of nand space" but it doesn't tell me where to find out if I have that much or what NAND means!
Then it says "Format SD-CARDto FAT32"But doesn't tell me how to do that or where to find out how to do that!
Then in Part 2 it says to "Install Bootmii as Boot2" but it has no further instructions on how to do this!
This is the part that really confuses me: In Part 3 it says to "Make a NAND backup, (NOT optional, do this)" But it doesn't say exactly what that is or how to do this. Do I use an SD card? Do I have to somehow hook my Wii up to my PC with some kind of cord??? How is this done? What do I click on on my Wii menu to start this process? Then it says to "Load HBC (I assume that means Home Brew Channel) and press -Home- (Home on what? Wiimote?? On screen??)
Please, someone, help me!! I need simple, step-by-every-single-step instructions! Where can I find them before my head explodes? All my son wanted was to use cheats for Wii Play Tanks & this has turned into a nightmare! Help! Please!
350 free blocks refers to internal Wii memory. Data management tab will tell you part of Wii system menu.
format an sd card... well ever formated a diskette? same idea I know just dated myself. google can help
Bootmii as boot 2, gets done when you install homebrew channel it part of that sequence. bootmii will either install as boot2 or IOS depends on your system.
click on the SD icon on the screen if you are on 4.1 or 4.2 it will ask to load boot.dol or .elf click yes. next bit simply sit back and wait.
Nand backup part of bootmii. uses sd card for info storage. no cords no messing around just your sd.
home on the Wiimote.

The guide is easier to follow once you are actually doing it. The most important thing is that you don't skip any steps. Follow the instructions as you are going along. You will see a lot of the things you are confused about on the TV screen as you are doing your mod. It will make a lot more sense at that point. Have fun, and if you get stuck don't hesitate to ask questions!
Thanks so much but I still have some questions??
Thanks again you have been most helpful. You saved my sanity!
