    FYI the - wad errors are occuring because people are not installing the patches during the Trucha bug program...

    5. When the selection screen comes up select 'Downgrade IOS15'.

    I took this to mean not to boot an ios and I used the b button to go ahead without reloading an IOS.. then I downgraded

    6. Run Trucha Bug Restorer again this time booting it with IOS15 & install patched (all patches) IOS36 as IOS36.

    This time choose ios15.. and then select the first option i0s36..the problem is that you need to hit the A button when i0s36 is highlighted this starts the download.. if you didn't know this it would take about 20 min (on the second screen not with the downgrade option) of fucking around with to figure it out.. I did it wrong the first time and got one of those dam - wad errors.

    So click on ios36 option then on the next screen you will ahve to click the header ios36 then the patch updates. I only installed the ios36 patch per instructions... But it's not a user friendly option (that is it was hard for me to know to do this...but I got lucky and clicked it).. doofus me

    7: Run Trucha Bug Restorer again and this time restore IOS15. This is self exp.. then the tutorial takes off from there...

    Thanks a bunch, and if someone wants a better explanation of why I got the -WAD error... just ask.. but I think this makes enough sense. Good luck all and thanks a billion great tutorial. And yes english is my first languge, but time is money

Also, what is the point of buying a modchip it looks like you don't need to with this tut (do you recommend a mod chip or no mod chip).
    Thnx
    the letter after the firmware # indicates what region it is for. seeing as how u are not aware of that i would recommend that u go and read all of the beginner tutorials on here before u end up bricking ur wii.

    preloader can be removed by reinstalling whatever system menu u have via a wad, then run nandclean to remove all the files left behind by preloader.

    bad wad

    Thanks for the reply i updated HBC to larest and flashed wasabi dx to 20 ret=-2 error is now gone now on to preloader.
    well I had 2 options one use bootmii and restore nand from an other system or second was to run a system menu 290 pal wad which I did I now have a black screen oh well back to the drawing board.
    I think I will try one of those Savemii Un Bricker as I already know the problem system menu is MIA or corrupt lets see what happens.

    I have your previous HB for Virgin 4 RAR file for pre-LU64 Wii's. I have installed it on two Wii's and would like to install the older version on a couple others for friends. I believe the procedure was much simpler as I don't recall using a bug restorer and rebooting several times, etc. Is there a way of getting those directions posted for the older version of you HB installer? The other Wii's will be homebrewed via instructions over the phone with novices on the other end so I really don't want to try and load homebrew with an unfamiliar version. It seems before the only thing I had to do after loading the chip the first time was to delete one file and rename another.

    its probably because u installed the wrong system menu. u need to install the system menu that matches ur firmware. u have firmware 4.1e. u installed system menu 290 which is 3.2e. now that i think about it 4.1 is so new i doubt anybody has put it to wad yet.

    Next

    well yes that would be the problem I do have a nand of a 4.1e hacked and a 3.4e virgin for same model and savemii might just work if not well it's a learning curve and if you never ever have a go you will never know on the + side I have lots of spare parts
    Next time I will ask before jumping in but jumping in thanks all.

    Thanks for the concern, I read the two suggested in this post..but before I did any reading I wanted to make sure it was even worthwhile (my time is semi valuable)...So, I asked a simple question, got a great answer from dogeggs (who is the man by the way), I don't see the need to belittle me? Just because it's the internet doesn't mean we're not people...remember that.
