So I installed everything fine and working. But I bumped into a problem trying to install Priiloader. ES Identify failing because my IOS 61 was not patched.
So I forcefully downloaded pimp my wii(Terrible name) and tried to patch the IOS61 file from there. It said it was successful and I restarted my wii.
I went into HBC to find it Upside Down. I tried to get into wad to do a fresh install of the IOS or something but when I try to start an app, it would freeze and lose connectivity.
I think the majority of the menu was using that IOS.
I am helping a friend do his Wii but became persistent in trying to install Priiloader. I don't have a gamecube controller. I am very newbie as this is probably my third Wii.
I still have my nand backup but it didn't seem to restore. I am not really sure how to use it.
I tried to load hackmii again to reinstall HBC but it froze.
As for Priiloader, first install cIOS249 and use that to install it. If you follow mauifrog's guide, you won't run into any of these issues.
