Custom theme help need asap!
Hi guys and gals. Im having a major issue here. When i go to make my theme into a CSM, mymenu says, FATAL ERROR: Image failed to re-size. Can ANYBODY help me with this? I have tried the newrun and the non36 run renamed as runfirst but i still get the same problem... And yes, i patched the run files together with my xx.app file. Thanks for helping if you did!
THIS IS GUIDE I USED TO UP ON TORRENT SITES. FOLLOW IT TO THE LETTER.
WARNING GET THIS WRONG AND YOU CAN BRICK YOUR Wii
INSTALLING A NEW THEME ON 3.2 OR 4.0 Wii
First process you need to get hold of the System file (000000XX.app)for your Wii,
The 000000XX.app is the Nintendo container for the Wii system menu. By patching this file using MyMenu, a user can replace the default Wii theme. XX changes depending on region and version of your system.
• 00000040.app = 3.2 NTSC-J
• 00000042.app = 3.2 NTSC-U
• 00000045.app = 3.2 PAL
• 00000070.app = 4.0 NTSC-J
• 00000072.app = 4.0 NTSC-U
• 00000075.app = 4.0 PAL
• 0000007b.app = 4.1 NTSC-U
• 0000007e.app = 4.1 PAL
It is essential that you choose the correct System Menu version and region for your Wii, or you will be bricked..
How to find
The easiest way to find these .app files is from the NUS Downloader (from here: NUS Downloader - WiiBrew .) To get the file properly, enter the following values in the nusdownloader, while making certain you have "Pack -> WAD" checked.
• 0000000100000002 (first window)
And then one of these in second window, get right one for your wii from above. E.g. 290 for 3.2e wii.
• 288 for 00000040.app
• 289 for 00000042.app
• 290 for 00000045.app
• 416 for 00000070.app
• 417 for 00000072.app
• 418 for 00000075.app
• 449 for 0000007b.app
• 450 for 0000007e.app
Once the WAD is downloaded, use the WAD unpacker available with WADder to unpack the .app files. You do this by:
• Install WADder, if you haven't already. ( Xuzz's Ramblings and WADder News WADder Blog )
• Browse to the WADder install folder. (My Computer\C:\Program files\WADder)
• In a new window, browse to C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\
• Drag common-key.bin from the WADder directory to the C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\ folder, but making sure you copy, not move (try a right-click drag).
• Drag the WAD you created on top of the wadunpacker.exe in the WADder install folder.
• Get the 00000001.app (approximately 6-8mb) from the wadunpack folder in the C:\Documents... folder. Rename this file to the appropriate name as above. E.g. 00000045.app for 3.2e wii.
That’s you now got an original wii system menu file, you need this to patch custom theme for them to work.
Making your new theme
Make a folder on your desktop called Themes
Download and install MyMenu from here: Xuzz's Ramblings and WADder News WADder Blog
Go to: Xuzz's Ramblings and WADder News WADder Blog and choose your theme, choose the right one for your Wii system, 3.2 or 4.0 or Any Wii. And download it to your themes folder. (check video first to see what theme is like.)
Open up MyMenu and click on browse where it says source. Got to: C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\wadunpack and click on your 000000xx.app file you made e.g 00000045.app and choose it.
On MyMenu where it says MyM file click on browse and find your theme folder and click on your MyM theme.
Now on MyMenu click on Create MyMenu, it will make file then ask you to name it and save it, save it to your themes folder. (You can get rid of the Mym file if you want.)
That’s your new theme ready for your Wii
Installing your new theme on your Wii
On sd card for Wii make a folder called themes and drag your new theme into it.
Go here: Xuzz's Ramblings and WADder News WADder Blog and download my menufiy.
Put the file in your apps folder on your sd card,
Put sd card in Wii.
If you want to be safe, make sure you have preloader or bootmii installed.
Go into homebrew on Wii and choose MyMenuify and choose themes.
Choose your theme and it will ask you if you want to install, say yes.
After it installs pick exit.
The Wii will reboot with your new theme.
This looks really cool if you modify the channels to match the theme. I have the Matrix Reloaded theme and all my custom channels (wad manager, homebrew browser, gamma loader) I have altered the pictures to matrix ones and when you open the program instead of music you get a line from the movie.

Is it your own theme or one you have downloaded?
Just a quick note, DO NOT put things like "need help ASAP" in your title for your thread. Asking for help immediately, escpecially without being a forum donator, will annoy most of the senior members, and they will most likely look over your post because of this.
Wiimaster, you should submit that guide to this thread: http://www.wiihacks.com/submit-articles-tutorials/ as we don't know how well the guide is and may need to be looked over by higher staff members. I understand your wanting to help in this regard, but member tutorials can lead to other problems with senior members troubleshooting a problem attached to this guide.
