    OK guys! The guide you have all been waiting for is here! A full-complete guide to get HBC and backup launchers working all

    in one!! PLEASE READ THE WHOLE GUIDE AND MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND IT BEFORE YOU PROCEED!!!! WE don't want any bricked wiis out there, do we?

    This will work on SYSTEM MENU 4.2 VIRGIN and UPDATED. It will work for 4.2e and 4.2u, dunno about 4.2j and 4.2k (Cioscorp usesrs will have a problem, ill add it some time in the guide)

    Warning, please all those who are on lower than 4.2, DO NOT update yet!! If you are on 3.1-4.1 system menu you should use the excellent Guide made by Dogeggs!

    Waninkoko's 4.2 SAFE updater is already out here, but it is not recommended that you update to 4.2 anyway.An online update will remove any cios you had on the wii!! You will lose the ability to play backups and load through usb! this is only for those who are already on 4.2.

    Also, no way to downgrade for now, so hang in there.

    The only extra that you will need is an SD card (I reckon you all have one by now) formatted as FAT32. If you have anything stored on the card, back it up in your PC because you will lose anything, then format it, so it is Guide-ready.

    HERE WE GO!!

    PART A: The astonishing installation of HBC: First steps into modding

    In this part we will install HBC, which is used to runn apps from the system menu, using the bannerbomb exploit. Along the way, DVDx will be installed, this allows the lens to recognise burned DVDs (not play backups, just see they are there). In the end we will install Bootmii, which is a very useful app as we will see next.

    A1)GET THIS and unrar the contents in the root of your SD card. In the root of the SD card whould be:
    root:\apps
    root:\private
    root:\wad
    IOS38-64-v3610.wad
    boot.elf

    A2)
    Run to your wii, place the card in the SD slot and navigate to the SD card icon, bottom left, writes SD and has the same shape, can't really miss it. Once you did this, a warning screen about scams should appear, press ok, screen will go black. A disclaimer shall appear, press one to continue.

    A3)Now three lines should appear: Homebrew channel, which can be isntalled, DVDx, also can be installed, Bootmii, which possibly will give you an error. Install all three of them and then exit.

    Warning: Bootmii at most cases will give you an error, so it cannot be installed as a boot2. For most of you will be isntalled as an ios. That is fine.

    A4)After that you are ready, you have isntalled all of the above! now an app can be palced in the apps folder in your SD card and be run by HBC! This has a load of functions: Media players, Emulators, Useful apps and Homebrew games! browse tham all here, but take care with the ones you dont really understand,as they might ruin your wii! most of them are really safe tho.

    Those who were able to install bootmi as boot2 SHOULD BACKUP THEIR NAND RIGHT AWAY!!! If bootmii was isntalled as ios, then you dont need this step, although you can make one just in case. Mind that you will need a Gamecube controller tho if bootmii was an ios


    Here is what you should do (abstract from Dogeggs' guide, hope he doesnt mind)
    The following should get you a cios, so that you can play backups on your wii:

    >>Those who had previously (before the update) installed ios249 may have a chance to play backed up games easily. They should run cios38rev14 installer from Homebrew Channel and use ios250. if that does not work, try running it again, but using one of the following : ios202, ios222,ios223,ios249.Then you can proceed to D. If one of these does not work either, you should have to do the following:


    ATTENTION: from this point on, the guide has not been fully tested, so you use it with your own risk!!!!

    PART B: The extermination of the evil stub ios249

    Ok, so N did this update and thos ppl knew that we use ios249 to isntall our cios and place our backups. What did they do? they invented an empty ios ("stub") and place it in slot 249, to stop us. Like they will! Muhahahaha. Here is what we do about it. We will uninstall ios249 stub, and then isntall our own cios38rev14 in slot 249:

    B1)GET THIS PACK or GET THIS PACK 2 or GET THIS PACK 3 (pick start with the first one, if you get an error pick the next one and follow instructions from B2 and on again. One of this will do the trick without an error)

    B2)Place the contents of the included folder in the SD card root (only contents should be in the SD root,everything else that you want to keep must be backed up on PC and the card formatted with FAT32)

    B3)Place the SD card in the wii, start HBC and press home ar the main HBC screen. (If your wii boots to Bootmii, just go to B5)

    B4)Select bootmii and wait.

    B5)Wadmanager should start.(on ios select, select ios36, or try a few, i am still researching on this)!!

    B6)Select SD card and press A to continue.

    B7)Select ios249 from wad folder and press A

    B8)change the action to "uninstall wad", press A

    B9)Done!! now to the next step!!





    PART C: The installation of our beloved cios38rev14

    Now that we deleted the stupid stub, the place is free so thet we can isntall cios!


    C1)NOW GET THIS PACK or THIS PACK 2 (pls report which one is working)

    C2)Download the file above and place the contents of the "Place to SD 2" folder in the SD card (should only contain the

    included files,)

    C3)Place the SD card in the wii, start HBC and press home ar the main HBC screen. (If your wii boots to Bootmii, just go to C5)

    C4)Select bootmii and wait.

    C5)cios38rev14 installer should run and give you some options.

    C6)At the beginning you should see ios249 highlighted. Keep pressing left on the wii pad until you see "Do not reload IOS" at the ios select screen, press A.

    C7)If you have internet connection, select "Network install", else select "SD card", Press A.

    C8)Proceed with the installation, and you are done.


    You should have ios249rev14 isntalled, which will allow you to run any Backup loader or USB laoder! Confirmed by some people, no negatives...


    PART D: Getting the backup launchers to work : the optionals

    Now we are worked up and ready to run our backups!! REMEMBER: Use Verbatim DVD-r burned at 2x-4x to minimise errors! Also be sure to scrub the update and region free your backups, so all of them play on 4.2, and noon tries to update you! This is necessary for now, because preloader for 4.2 has not been released yet. Once it is, this will no longer be compulsory. But for now, be safe!

    D1)Remember the first pack I gave you? Place the "apps" and "wad" folder of that in the root of the SD card (The first rar ok? delete all the others from SD)

    D2)
    Place the SD in wii and boot up, go to HBC.

    D3)
    Now:
    -For DVD launching, go to NeoGamma r7
    -For USB launching, go to USB loader GX

    D4)To install wads (careful with that, ok? youare not preloader safe. Definately do not uninstall ANY IOS LOWER THAN 200!!! You will brick! I repeat for the Buttheads: Do not uninstall ioses with a number lower than 200!!!)
    To isntall wads, select wadmanager, and choose ios249 and SD card on the options (should be default).
    -If you want Neogamma as a channel , install Neogammar7.wad
    -If you want USB loader GX as a channel, install USB_Loader_GX-ULNR-r688.wad (this will isntall the full channel, but you can install the forwarder instead, USB Loader GX-UNEO_Forwarder.wad, which can be directly updated by placing updated version in the SD card, yet you will need the SD card constantly inside the Wii slot to launch it. Install whichever sounds more useful to you)


    That's it for now, i will update the guide when i can to include more things!!

    Note: I have not programmed or been part of any of these programs, credits all go to them! Team twiizers,bootmii and hackmii guys, comex for his bannerbomb, and all the others that created the various apps for the wii! I merely gathered them in a single guide


    Please send feedback ASAP!!!!
    works with wad manager 1.5 when ios 250 selected at step2.

    What about the CIOS222/2223 parts?

    Just curious as they are Required for USB Loader to work?

    Maybe add that section.

    Thanks Messie, great guide, I've ordered a nice 1TB WD (working for homebrew/media/backup) drive for playing backups with on the usb loaders (yeah i know 500mb limit on the partitions before anyone tells me).

    I believe IOS222 = USB functionality, or something USB Loaders require to boot into? and some games?

    Let me know

    Thanks.
