    Guide: Softmod ANY Wii



    Softmod/Hack/Update your Softmod on almost ANY Wii v14 1/23/2017

    To be clear this guide is for WII NOT WiiU. To softmod the vWii (Wii Mode) of the Wii U, look HERE.

    What this guide WILL do:
    • Softmod ANY Wii (including Hardmodded Wii's) except for the Wii Mini (the Mini has no sd slot, therefore cannot be softmodded)
    • Update ANY previously softmodded Wii to our recommended specifications
    • Fix almost ANY failed mod attempt from some other fail guide
    • Fix some types of bricks
    • Allows you to load backup games/emulators/homebrew games
    • Gives you many other features exclusive to having a softmodded Wii

    What YOU need to know and do:
    • Read each part of the guide at least a few times before performing it. Too often throughout the years we have seen people fail, post dumb questions, etc all because of failing to read. Don't be "that guy".
    • If you were linked here from another thread/forum, please don't bombard the person who sent you here with questions as to what this guide does. Everything is explained below in detail.
    • If something in this guide is Optional, it will be explicitly stated as such. If you do not see "Optional", you MUST do it!
    • If this is your first time modding, take a read of BluPhant's Thinking about hacking a Wii? Start here! A basic Introduction to Wii hacking. It will give you a greater understanding of what you are about to do to your Wii, along with a bunch of other great info.

    Prerequisites to following this guide:
    • Must have at least 350 Blocks of free space on your Wii
    • Use a STANDARD 2GB SD card for the modding process, preferably Sandisk. You can try other cards, but they may not work. If you are using a different card and the hackmii installer from Chapter 1 of this guide freezes and/or doesn't load, don't go asking why. Chances are your Futsushiwithsoysauce brand 8GB micro SD in the adapter that your dog chewed up is the culprit.
    • Remove all accessories from the ports on your Wii - that includes USB, Gamecube controllers and memory cards, everything...
    • Don't lose power during the mod process!!! Performing this mod during the lightning storm of the century is not a good idea. The actual modding process doesn't take that long, a few minutes at most, so chances are you will be fine. But still, not a good idea to do any of this if your power is flickering.


    As is with the software modification of any device, there is inherently a very small chance of bricking. Accept this fact or stop now. That being said, this is probably the safest guide out there. Many of the steps are for your protection, which is why they are included.

    Update ANY Existing Softmod / Overwrite ANY Old or Failed Softmod

    What this softmod installs

    Spoiler



    Chapter 1 - Installing The Homebrew Channel and Bootmii, and making your NAND Backup

    Format your SD card to FAT32. Do a FULL format, not a quick format, and don't just delete the contents.
    The reason for a Full Format is twofold.
    • Doing a full format will identify any bad sectors on your device. The last thing you want to do is have corrupt files installing onto your Wii.
    • Formatting removes everything completely from the drive. Many times during the course of this guide you will be told to batch install a group of files in a certain folder. Having other files mixed in with these can result in disaster for your Wii.
    • If you have any issues with formatting, try using THIS format tool.

    Part 1 - Launch the Hackmii Installer

    Spoiler


    Part 2- Install The HomeBrew Channel and Bootmii

    Spoiler


    Part 3- Make A NAND Backup (NOT Optional, do this)

    Spoiler



    Chapter 2 - Hacking your Wii

    Format your SD card again. This time, you can do the quick format option if you wish.
    To reaffirm what was written above...
    • Must have at least 350 Blocks of free space on your Wii
    • Use a STANDARD 2GB SD card for the modding process, preferably Sandisk. You can try other cards, but they may not work.
    • Remove all accessories from the ports on your Wii - that includes USB, Gamecube controllers and memory cards, everything...

    Part 1 - Downloading Files - *REQUIRED*

    Spoiler


    Part 2 - Verify Checksums - VERY IMPORTANT

    Spoiler


    Part 3 - Wad Installation

    Spoiler


    Part 4 - Priiloader Installation

    Spoiler



    Chapter 3 - Setting up your Softmodded Wii

    One last time, format your SD card. Yo can do the quick format option if you wish
    The following is a select list of homebrew that we believe will help you make the most of your softmodded Wii.

    Part 1 - Installing our recommended App Pack and understanding how Apps are set up on your SD card

    Spoiler


    Part 2 - Setting up Forwarders on your Home Screen *OPTIONAL*

    Spoiler


    Part 3 - Priiloader Forwarders *Optional*

    Spoiler

    Part 4 - Links to guides that will help you make the most out of your modded Wii and Troubleshooting Game Problems

    WiiHacks.com does not support online cheating or piracy!! Play Fair!!

    WFT mauifrog?

    FAQ- draft

    Does this work On all wiis? Yes
    Does this work on Korean wiis? Yes
    Does this work on My wii? Yes, yes, yes, it works on all wiis.

    What is BB1 & BB2?
    BB1 & BB2 is Bannerbomb 1 and Bannerbomb 2. Bannerbomb 1 is compatible with SM 3.0-4.1. Bannerbomb 2 is compatible with SM 4.0-4.2. For more info, read bannerbomb

    What is Homebrew Channel, Bootmii, DVDx?
    The Homebrew channel is used to launch homebrew apps. DVDx provides dvd read support for the wii, and bootmii is required brick protection. Read wiibrew.org for more info.

    Why do Korean wiis have to install ios15, 34, 36, 61 prior to using your guide?
    Korean wiis lacks many common ios, and will get a "No Vulnerable Ios" error when installing the Homebrew Channel. Installing Ios34 allows the HBC to install. Install iso61 allows the HBC to use ios 61 and prevent inverted screen during the ios patching. Ios 15 and ios 36 are required for the traditional tbr install to work.

    Why did you choose to install the trucha patched ios36 into ios236?
    Ios 236 was used to provide an alternative to ios249. Since cIOS57 -r19 was used as our ios249, some apps will give error, such as older wadmanagers. Ios 236 can be used instead to install wads and such. Wadmanger 1.7 now supports cIOS57, and other trouble apps should follow suite when updated. (maybe)

    Your guide says I can region change my wii?
    Yes you can
    Even Korean wiis? Yes

    Why do I need to upgrade to 4.1?
    4.1 is currently the sm of choice, it does everything you could want. 3.2 and 4.2 are also acceptalbe sm, which is fully supported by priiloader. Anything else is unacceptl and should not be used. So to make things simple, just upgrade to 4.1, unless you know you don't want to.

    Why do you use dop-mii? Why not Waninkoko's 4.1 updater?
    This is simple, Waninkoko's updater will easily brick a wii that does not have the proper ios installed. Dop-mii is smart and checks to ensure to the proper ios is installed prior to installing a system menu.

    Why do you patch ios38, 53, 55?
    These are very common ios to use with games. Having the ios patched allows it to read fakesigned data. Say custom game disks, and such. It also provides an extra method of brick protection by having those ios patched.

    Why do you install ios16, cIOS30, cIOS36, cIOS50, cIOS60, and cIOS70?
    This also provides extra brick protection by removing stubs and replacing with patched ios. These ios, when installed prevent commom bricks caused by ios stubs. These ios have the version # set to 54321, this prevents a Nintendo update from removing them. The cIOS are taken from cIOSCORP 3.6, and will allow a recovery disk to run without installing a modchip. Ios16 enables the Pink Fish disk to run if needed, which can do a few useful things. cIOS30, when installed prevents lu64 wii from bricking if they install 3.2, if cIOS30 is not removed in the process. cIOS50 prevents the stupid upgrade downgrade brick, same with cIOS60. cIOS70 prevent the 003 error found on the Korean wii. Version was changed to 54321 do discurage their uninstallation.

    What is Indiana PWNs, and why do I need it?
    Indiana PWNS allows you to run an app when playing the Lego Indiana Jones Game. It is a simple savegame file, which can be useful to recover from certian bricks. You should install it, there is no reason not to.

    Why do I need bootmii and priiloader?
    Because you do, just install them. Bootmii is only good for recovery on older boot2 wiis, and it does not block updates. You need priiloader to block updates, this is very important. It also provideds very simple recovery from certian bricks.

    Why so much brick protection?
    I think it is good to have redundant options. Know one should ever need to uses any of this. We all know what not to do, but unfortunatly people do really stuppid stuff every day. So this gives you all the options. So if you do do something stupid, you should have every possible method of recovery available. If one fails, you have another.

    Nice guide!

    Install the Wii Backup Disk to USB or Burn it to disk good and proper
    Also does this suggest you can use the wii backup disk from USB or am I reading that wrong ? How would that work?

    I assume you would still need an autobooting modchip when using it to recover right?

    fixed the link, and yes it can be run from usb or disk using neogamma loader- from HBC.

    You would need a chip or a little corp to run it from recovery menu.

    Why not just use Dop-mii to restore the trucha bug?

    Because then the guide would have to be different for 4.2 and 4.1 wiis. Using TBR 1.2 adds a version check patch to ios36, removing the need to delete any stubbed ios files. So the process is the same, regardless of the system menu or stubs.

    Also, TBR is loaded via cboot2 removing the need to downgrade ios15 and then later restore it.
