    Systemmenu hacks problem

    Hi,

    I bought a Wii with a Japanese 3.2J menu and use your tutorial to hack the wii. I'm stuck at step 5c ( skipped step 4, update 4.1). I get a error: hacks for your system versionc(3.84) were found NOT compatible.

    Do I need to install system 3.84 NTSC wad and how do I do it?

    No, you have a Japanese Wii. As stated in Step 5 of the tutorial, preloader hacks are available for the Japanese 4.1J Wii. You do not want to install NTSCsysmenu. Do you want to update your 3.2J to 4.1J and install preloader? or do you just want to stick with the protection you received by installing bootmii as boot2 in Steps 1 and 2? Preloader is an optional step.

    If you want to update to 4.1J-download from here: System Menu-4.1J-v448.wad. Extract the file and copy to your Wad folder. Install using Wad Manager. You will also need the 4.1J preloader hacks.ini from here:Preloader/hacks - WiiBrew. The hacks.ini file should be copied to the SD card's Root directory.

    WBFS 3.0 was reported to have overcome the problem of formatting an NTSF HDD. Perhaps not entirely successfully. The 1Tb WD HDD comes as FAT32 so usually WBFS has no problem with it. As your Wii games can't be left to show up whenever the HDD wants them to, I suggest you reformat your HDD as FAT32. Download and reinstall WBFS Manager. Don't have your PC doing anythng else while you do these things.

    Follow this tutorial to get your HDD formatted and your games back on again:<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"><meta name="ProgId" content="Word.Document"><meta name="Generator" content="Microsoft Word 11"><meta name="Originator" content="Microsoft Word 11"><link rel="File-List" href="file:///C:%5CDOCUME%7E1%5Cmpq%5CLOCALS%7E1%5CTemp%5Cmsohtm l1%5C01%5Cclip_filelist.xml"><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:PunctuationKerning/> <w:ValidateAgainstSchemas/> <w:SaveIfXMLInvalid>false</w:SaveIfXMLInvalid> <w:IgnoreMixedContent>false</w:IgnoreMixedContent> <w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText>false</w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText> <w:Compatibility> <w:BreakWrappedTables/> <w:SnapToGridInCell/> <w:WrapTextWithPunct/> <w:UseAsianBreakRules/> <wontGrowAutofit/> </w:Compatibility> <w:BrowserLevel>MicrosoftInternetExplorer4</w:BrowserLevel> </w:WordDocument> </xml><![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:LatentStyles DefLockedState="false" LatentStyleCount="156"> </w:LatentStyles> </xml><![endif]--><style> <!-- /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:""; margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} a:link, span.MsoHyperlink {color:blue; text-decoration:underline; text-underline:single;} a:visited, span.MsoHyperlinkFollowed {colorurple; text-decoration:underline; text-underline:single;} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} --> </style><!--[if gte mso 10]> <style> /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} </style> <![endif]--> http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...s-usb-hdd.html<o></o>

    I am newbie and already made mistake
    a) Go to Homebrew channel and run Trucha Bug Restorer, load IOS36, press 1, read the warnings then select 'downgrade IOS15', select to load IOS from SD card then let it do its job, keep an eye on what it is doing and make sure you select 'load from sd card' when it asks & don't get any errors.

    b) Run Trucha Bug Restorer again, this time select to load IOS15 on first screen using dpad left/right, then select the IOS36 menu & install patched (select 'yes' on all 3 patches) IOS36 to slot 36, again using IOS from SD card.

    c) Run Trucha Bug Restorer again, load IOS36 and this time select restore IOS15.
    I already did from a,b,c and find out that i made mistake did not "Load IOS15 using dpad L/R" , so i go back and redo step b, now my screen is black screen and hang whenever i go to Trucka Bug Restore.
    What should i do now ? please help me.
    My system is:
    1. Wii LU64
    2. Version 3.4U

    Im having a problem on step 4, I have menu ver 3.4u, so apparantly I have to upgrade. however the instructions referred to in step 5a are for menu version 4.1.
    "If you are on system menu 4/4.1 use Wad Manager with default settings (IOS249 & SD card) to install IOS60-patched.wad"
    I cannor find IOS 249 and have tried IOS35 and 36 which were referenced earlier in the guide. I keep getting Error Ret -2011 after selecting IOS60-patched.wad

    Any Help?

Best thing is to read the tutorial and ask if something isn't clear to you.

    If you remain fearful, no problem many Wii owners do not mod their Wiis. Also, you could consider a hardmod or chipmod-depending on your locale, you might not even have to install that yourself.
    Thanks, I do have another question, if I do brick it somehow it is possible to restore if I did the nand backup correct? I am just trying to be careful since the wii is not one of the older one's which were easier to softmod..

    Re-do Step 3 and watch the screen carefully for any error messages. Read through the Step 3 procedures as you missed something.

    If you are successful then proceed again to Step 4: install IOS60patched, THEN run FW 4.1 installer.

    If successful, continue tutorial at Step 5B.

    If you have a newer Wii, installation of bootmii as boot2 is not possible. To restore the Wii's NAND with bootmii installed as IOS, one needs access to the HBC. So in a bricking situation wothout HBC, the NAND could not be restored. Preloader becomes the primary source of protection in maintaining access to HBC.

    In softmodding a Wii without the benefit of bootmii as boot2 and a reliable NAND backup, it becomes more important that one read, understand, and follow the softmod directions.
