before you update to 4.1, you need to run WAD manager and install the patched ios60, or els your system will brck. After you install the ios60 patched, you can exit wad manager and update to ver4.1, then you can goto the last step.
well i did not mean to do it but i deleted my 1TB WD mybook that was about 500 gb of downloads gone a lot of movies and apps but it is not like it has not happen before lol but i did get the hdd to be a active part. so i hope that helps also i got all the wads. for the wii backup, GC back up and usb loader so i will install those and see if that helps too i know i got plenty of space on wii i think there is 1900 blocks or more any way thanks for the help i will report back later i hope with good news
Two last question. Now that I have everything done and working (I am using system menu 4.1u) if I go to the wii shopping channel to download apps and channels from wii it wants me to update my wii. Would this screw everything from my soft modding up? If so how do I go about being able to get online without updating?
Second Question. Every time I go to the Homebrew channel it wants me to update it. The tutorial said not to update but now that I am all done softmodding is it safe to run that update or am I going to have to just deal with that pop up window every time I go to the Homebrew channel?
OMG thanks man i got my Brand new 4.0u wii softmod working not im afiad to touch it lol my question is can anything go wrong even if i have the game updater blocked? the only thing i may do is a usb loader. and because i installed bootmii as a ios and backed my nand can i restore it back if i have any issues?
The guide worked PERFECTLY for me! Everyone follow it to the T and you'll have no problems/issues to deal with. Thank you so much for making this guide Dogeggs.
Its helped many people, including myself.
3.1-4.1 Softmod Tutorial (Works on all wii's!)

Press the Thanks button if I have helped you in any way!
I added some detail and bold them, basically say 3a) should press B and 3b) 3c) should press A, otherwise you either get -2011 or HBC upside down.
3. GET A CIOS
a) Go to Homebrew channel and run Trucha Bug Restorer, load IOS36, press B, 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, press A, press 1, 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, , press A, press 1, and this time select restore IOS15.
I am thinking about giving this a try. My Wii has firmware 3.1U. Once the softmod is done, can I still play my original Wii disc?
