    A noobie is scared: WAD Manager can't install custom IOS60.wad - error 1092!

    Hello, I just bought a Wii and with my traditions - decided to hack it day 1. However, unlike a PSP or iPhone, Wii just overwhelmed me. I just got blown over how complex the thing actually is. Right now I was following this tutorial Failed guide link removed
    I followed it up pretty well but when I try to install IOS60custom.wad it gives me an error 1092. The only similar thread I found resulted in a bricked Wii, and I don't really want that. :/
    I am pretty scared, I just sit in my Homebrew Channel too scared to quit because it might brick the thing! I tried different IOS60patched.wad - some of them even from this site, but with no avail. Also, as you can see, the tutorial didn't mention ANYTHING about doing a backup of something so I am almost positive that if I brick my Wii I won't be able to do anything. Any help for a noob, would be appreciated.
    Also, I tried installing Priiloader but it too gives me handful of errors.

    FIXED: Please lock the thread.

    Try following a guide from this site

    and welcome to

    Thank you for becoming a member of the best wii modding site around!

    First off you need to read the
    Site rules and try your best to abide by them.
    Also You need to realise that this site is here to help you make the most out of your Wii and not to help people with piracy!

    Now we know the rules its time to find the right guide for modding your wii, I recommend the

    The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog

    This guide works for all wii's

    And Bluphant's noobs guide - Basic introduction to wii hacking

    There are also other guides which you can find in the
    Guides and tutorials section

    Once you have completed the guide you need to ascertain if your wii is capable of playing backups via the disc drive or whether you need to be usb loading.

    Wii's post 2009 generally cannot play backups via the disc drive and have to use usb loading.

    I recommend usb loading anyway as you can add an remove your games easily and there is no wear and tear on your disc drive and no messing about with discs etc.

    What you will need to know -

    What drives are compatible -
    Usb Compatibility list

    How to set your drive up -
    Loading and Playing Wii Backup Games from USB HDD

    Once your HDD is setup and ready to go, you will need a program to manage your games!
    Checkout Peire's
    Wii Game Manager Guide

    Now your set up and ready to go, but you run in to a problem with one of your game backups -
