    The Impossible-To-Update" Wii (Super Hard To Brick)

    This guide contains some dead links. The wiihacks staff is in the process of updating these

    This guide was not only made by me, but by streamlinehd, so don't forget to thank him too!
    We present to you…..
    WiiFFFF aka TiuWii (The Impossible to Update Wii) aka SysMenuX

    You should keep in mind, this may be a very ADVANCED mod, somethings might be broken (or may work perfectly fine). It's recommended that you have a NAND Backup and bootmii installed as boot2. This is a heavy mod and there can almost be a guarantee that if you fail this mod without having bootmii/boot2, you will be bricked for life. This is at your own risk

    NOTICE: USING ONLINE UPDATES FROM NINTENDO WILL UPDATE YOUR BOOT2 UNLESS ITS THE LATEST (V4) THUS REMOVING BOOTMII/BOOT2 ALONG WITH IT. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE LATEST BOOT2 AND PRESS UPDATE, BE SURE TO REINSTALL BOOTMII AFTERWARDS!


    [SPOILER=Click Me]

    [/SPOILER]


    [SPOILER=FAQ]
    Q: What does this do?
    A: This will install several iOS (see above list) and a 4.1 System Menu to your system. These several iOS are special, they are set as version 65535 - The highest possible version for a Wii system title. This way, Nintendo cannot remove any cIOS.


    Q: Why do I need a NAND Backup and bootmii installed boot2?
    A: It's not 100% required but in the event that something goes wrong, you're covered. Since this is an extreme mod, failure at ANY level can result in a full brick which can only be repaired with bootmii/boot2. Everything done to your console is at your own responsibility! This has been tested on a USA Wii.


    Q: What's the point behind this?
    A: Simple, Nintendo's updates always bring new iOS that are needed to run games or new channel updates. Sadly, for soft-modders, updates cost us our homebrew. With this mod, you will be able to safely hit the update button without losing your backup loading abilities, patched iOS and Homebrew Channel

    [SPOILER="USB Loaders/Backup Disc Loader FAQ"]
    • Q: What USB loaders are supported by WiiFFFF?
      A: CFG USB Loader and Wiiflow are both supported however you must download the versions for use with cIOS222 which are linked in this guide.

    • Q: Does Neogamma work with WiiFFFF?
      A: Yes, it works perfectly off cIOS249 v65535 (from this guide)
    [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER="Troubleshooting WiiFFF Installation"]Problem: All wads didnít install properly.

    Solution: Load a different IOS in MMM Ė From the MMM main menu choose to load a different IOS and first try loading IOS249. If wads donít install properly with IOS249, load IOS36 and try again. If wads still donít install with IOS36 try loading IOS250. Once IOS236-v65535 is installed it will auto-load and the rest of the wads should install without issue.
    [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER="Banner Brick/Theme Brick Recovery Discs for SM X"]While System Menu X is very difficult to fully brick, it is still just as easy to banner brick or theme brick (shame on you). With this in mind, I will be releasing a couple recovery discs for use with System Menu X just in case you find yourself stuck without a functional Priiloader. Please keep in mind that you will need to have System Menu X installed as well as have a disc drive that can read DVD-R backup discs for this to work. The recovery discs listed here are for use with System Menu X only and will not work with any other System Menu.

    Recovery Disc #1 - Multi Mod Manager for System Menu X



    Recovery Disc #2 - Official Nintendo Syn-Backup Recovery Disc for System Menu X


    • Burn with Imgburn at 4X on DVD-R disc

    • Power On Wii and insert disc - Recovery disc will start automatically

    • Insert SD card, choose Save All and wait for backup to complete

    • Choose Delete All and press A twice to confirm

    • Exit to System menu

    • Complete the initial Wii setup

    • Run recovery disc again and choose Restore

    • Your Banner/Theme Brick has now been fixed!

    [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER="System Menu X (Wiiffff) Priiloader hacks.ini for all regions"]
    hacks.ini - This is also included in the System Menu X pack.[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER="System Menu X (Wiiffff) Priiloader v0.6 hacks_hash.ini for all regions"]
    hacks_hash.ini - To be used with Priiloader v0.6 [/SPOILER]

    Did you download the new pack in this guide. It's been revamped so you should try downloading the new pack for your region and using the hacks.ini included in the pack.

    The hacks.ini for USA works fine but it must be the one for System Menu X. The hacks.ini for any other menu will not work. Take a look at my previous post. I posted a link for all regions, just make sure you use the correct one.

    Are you having issues installing Priiloader itself or just the hacks for Priiloader? Make sure to use cIOS249 to install (press and hold b and press +)
