    All right, got it.

    Thank you

    And more in-depth research....
    Successfully installed ios70-patched and priiloader...hooyah! It still works!

    Nice man, congrats. I was definitely nervous about doing it too, but figured in the end it'd be best to complete it......it didn't help that my girlfriend was breathing down my neck the whole time saying "DONT F UP MY WII!!!" lol

    I literally bugged her for a week, every day, read this guide every day too. Finally....she said if I bought her Denny's I could do it....yay for Denny's!

    Thank you for the guide Messie! It was very helpful!! I did kind of get stuck at D6, but I was just nervous to press anything since I know you can brick your wii in the wad program by uninstalling ios's under 200!!

    I did have to install this file (IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad to the root of my sd card. Just in case anybody else has any problems with this step. It doesn't mention that in the guide and I wanted to make sure I followed everything exactly!! Just took a little research since I'm a total noob! hehe!

    @nubioso - Picked up a 2g SanDisk card and was able to get through step A as well as the back-up. Now I'll just have to find a GameCube controler to borrow to continue with the rest.

    Thanks for the help.

    See if you can get through it without the GC Controller....I was able to without any problems. I did happened to have a controller handy and all, buuut for some reason it never needed to be used.....

    Oh wait....after re-reading the guide...specifically the part that needs the GC Controller....I realize that it's within the bootmii menu that you need that. I never did a NAND backup because mine is installed as an IOS. I suppose I should have, but then again at the end of the paragraph he says "It is not recommended to restore your NAND if you have Bootmii installed as an IOS." so since mine is an IOS and it's not recommended to restore the NAND anyway, I guess that's why I just skip that part.

    Anywho, you could also see if the power/reset/eject buttons happen to work for you as well.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I see he specifically says you'll have to use the GC controller if boot2 is an IOS. But again, before the NAND backup instructions start he says "If bootmii was installed as ios, then you don't need this step, although you can make one just in case." so I'm not too concerned about it really.

    It should matter if the wad is in root or not....after all, you'd simply point to the SD card in wad manager and if it's in the root it'll be there, otherwise it could be in your wad folder and you can run it from there too. There's a few ways to get at it really.

    I was wondering about the whole backing up the nand. That part of the guide really confused me. I installed bootmii as an IOS but I still did make a backup of my NAND! I don't understand what is the purpose of downloading bootmii and priiloader if you don't make a NAND to use to recover your system? Hmmm So if you do not make a NAND how are you supposed to recover your system if you get bricked? If you install bootmii as an ios?

    Now I just have to figure out how to get the usb loader thing working....I think my usb drive may be incompatible...It's a Lexar 4GB. Guess I'll have to go buy a western digital...

    Might be a stupid question, but why do you have to back up the nand?

    I have done loads of these consoles 4.2E mods without any issues what so ever, so just why do it. It just seems to be complicating things for beginners.

    Big thanks to this site, and all on it keep up the good work.

    NAND backup & USB storage

    Good question, Jessica. If you have a NAND copy (or don't), how do you restore it and clear a brick situation? I too went ahead and made a copy of the NAND even though my bootmii is installed as an IOS. It's on my 8GB SD card and doesn't take up that much room.

    As far as an external USB drive goes, the cost of storage nowadays is extremely cheap. Commit to a good-sized drive to store your games and programs. I wouldn't think any thumb-drive would have the capacity to make it useful for program storage.
