    When we first talked your question did include a reference to not seeing boot.elf on the SD but a semibrick situation was not identified. Are you unable to access sys menu options-that is usually the case in a semibrick. To perform this softmod in Step 1-5 sequence you will need access to Wii Options>Data Mgt>Channels>SD card. Without access, you will need to restore System Menu before Steps 1,2 can be performed.

    Did you retain HBC access?

    OH NO!!! By now, I'm sure you are well aware you made a big mistake-all you were to do was what I said-reinstall preloader. In this tutorial Step 5a in BOLD it reads NEVER uninstall IOS60!-you will brick!!

    I'm sorry, you have bricked your Wii. I don't recall your FW (sysmenu version) before the softmod, were you able to install bootmii as boot2? If so, you can restore your Wii with the NAND backup. If you were only able to install bootmii as IOS, go to the bricked Wii forum section to read up your options.

    OK so im a noob here.... I have been looking around on the net to softmod my wii and i tried a way from this other site(which lies my first mistake this site rocks!!!!).I have read your directions and they seem so cut and dry i wish i would have found them from the beginning as all the other ones out there are so dam confusing.SO i hope you all can help me out.

    I have version 3.4 on my wii from the start of what i did never downgraded or upgraded. A few other sites stated it was ok to start from that version. So im not sure. I really dont want to brick my kids wii.

    I ran the bootmii file and i have the homebrew channel right now.I dont want to go any farther as im not sure if i can downgrade now.I also installed the bootmii as an IOS and a BOOT2 option there was not any problem installing them.

    Also i never made a back up NAND file so i would like to do that hopefully.

    I would like to run all or most games from a usb external HD as my kids have a habit of scratching them. I have downloaded all the software necessary i believe and would like to know on what to do to get it right.

    Also i have a S**t load of files on my SD card that i have no idea what they are now as i was so confused. can i format it leaving the HB channel with no ill effects and finish the soft mod correctly.

    If the only thing was installing homebrew and bootmi/ (ios or boot2?which was it?), you should continue from step 2. if bootmii was an ios, you can skip step 2, esp. if you dont have a GC controller. Won't hurt to do it either.

    Format your SD using FAT32 and place the files from this guide np.

    In case you have also installed sth else, pls state it, so we can give you more help, and tell you what different you should do. There is also an offline upgrade method for step 4 , in case you can't do waninkoko's online method (which, however, is recommended).

    Sequence is also very important, so be sure not to skip anything... Good luck!!
