    WiiHome Pre Boot Screen Theme and Music No Risk

    Installing a Menu theme can be very dangerous and can be quite scary. If you are just looking to give your wii a little something different, why not try a WiiHome Pre Boot Screen with your own theme and music.

    WiiHome is safe because you are not actually changing anything on the system, all you are doing is adding a file and letting prilloader boot to it.

    Get WiiHome here: MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    Installing Wiihome

    # Put the WIIHOME.DOL file in the root of the SD/SDHC card
    # Go to Preloader (0.27 or better)
    # Click on "settings"
    # Change "autoboot" to "file"
    # Change "return to" to "systemmenu"
    # Click on "save settings"
    # Press B button and go to "install/load dol File"
    # Select "WIIHOME.DOL" and press A button
    # Turn off the Wii and turn the Wii back on
    Thats wiihome ready.

    To change default theme and add music.

    The theme are located in the folder WiiHome at the root of the SD/SDHC card. The theme images files must be in PNG format. Here is the list of files :

    * background.png: the background. The image must be 640*480.
    * button.png: the button. The image must be 500*100.
    * button_selected.png: the button selected by the cursor. The image must be 500*100.
    * font.png: font. The image must be 1024*8.
    * cursor.png: cursor. The image must be 96*96.
    * music.mp3: music.

    This is what it can look like, this one is basic but gives you idea.

    Forgot to say if you make your own and you want the wii menu picture and hbc picture on your template just cut and paste them into the same position as on the sample I have above.
