I do not have internet connection on my wii, this won't be a problem will it? And I noticed that the virginizer will actually upgrade my wii to 4.1 do I really want to upgrade?
    4.1 is best (not 4.2!) as this provides maximum benefits. You'll have SDHC compatibility/capability, and you will be compatible with Priiloader which is your first, best line of defense against certain "threats" (banner bricks, game disc update prompts, that idea). 3.1/3.3/3.4 aren't compatible with Priiloader. If your Wii is 2 yrs old by chance, when you do get to this mod you should be able to install BootMii as boot2 which is the best brick recovery option available --- but Priiloader and it work well effectively together.

    Edit: Imgburn is great, no higher than 4x (seems you got that nailed down OK). Taiyo Yuden, Verbatim, or Ritek G05 are best in terms of media quality... the thinking is DVD-R mostly due to suggestive laser issues. Myself I burn DVD+R with bitsetting to DVD-ROM, but that's a matter of personal practice/preference and not officially sanctioned. I use USB HD as primary means, so in my case I think I'm good as I never use the drive (I even put'em on the USB HD via PC side of things). Again, the official line if that's what you're asking is quality media and DVD-R.

    Question Confused.

    I dont get it. It plays wii music just fine.. its written on a dvd+R. But it wont run Madworld and A Boy and his Blob. Says "Cant run data from disk" or something like that.

    I thought I would check, so I was clear on all steps. I already have 4.1E, and I plan to follow this guide.

    On step 4, it says you don't need to update if you have 4.1. But do I still need to install the patched IOS60? 'Warning - If you don't install the patched IOS60 first you will brick!' Or do I not need it if I'm on 4.1 already. I think the patched version allows wiiware and VC from an SD, but that is the only difference? So the ISO60 I already have on my 4.1 should be OK, as I don't intend to use SD/VC.



    Thanks, and sorry I wasn't 100% sure, so could someone please clarify it for me.

    Oh, it seems as if I need the patched one for Priiloader anyway. So I guess I will have to install it!

    first of all THANKS! the guide is really simply to follow, an the way the files were compiled really helps. I do have a question though.

    i dont have internet access enabled, and cant enable due to semi-brick.

    Done all steps up to 4, and have patched ISO60. Given i have no internet access, how would i upgrade fw.

    In addition, i dont know what fw im on. I hadnt used the wii in a long time (2007 model i think) and i stupidly updated from an ntsc wii fit plus backup.

    any ideas?

    i did hard mod on D2Cpro, but note that they jut arent supporting it anymore.

    thanks

    Playing WAD and ISO files

    Hi,

    I used the guide and installed everything fine(so far anyways) ...
    I am now at the point where I want to play some games, but not sure how I go about this. Can someone tell me how to play WAD and ISO files?? Can I play WAD files from the SD card?? if so, do I need to install anything else??

    thanx

    Thanks for this tut! .
    There's one thing though, I can't download the pack. The first download link.
    Is it possible to put it on mediafire?

    Thumbs up Thanks!

    Had a tough time at the point of the IOS60. It wasn't clear to me that the file was found in the wad sub directory of the sd card (until i opened the downloaded archive finally and found where it was extracted to).

    Other than that, all went perfectly... thanks a million!
