    Lightbulb theme help?

    ok, so its been a while since i posted anything so here it goes.
    I currently have a CSM file of the darkwii theme for Wii Menu 4.3U, but in case i want to go back to the default theme, i need to know how to get the base.app file for 4.3U

    WHAT I HAVE ON MY WII:
    Latest version of hbc (installed via smash stack)
    Priiloader
    Bootmii IOS (bought my wii in 2009 so i cant get it installed as boot2 )
    NO MODCHIPS OR OTHER UNAUTHORIZED SOFTWARE... yet...

    i do have NUS downloader, but i honestly dont know how to only get the APP file and not a whole WAD.

    you do not have bootmii as boot 2.

    Therefore the advice is: DO NOT MESS WITH THEMES.

    Its dangerous and can VERY EASILY brick your wii. Your theme is the standard one, live with it, its not like you see it for long.

    You took an extreme risk in doing a custom theme with BootMii installed as an IOS. IDK the answer to this, but there are a few guides (not many) on the subject on this site. Perhaps use the search feature in the upper right corner? Note: I personally don't recommend this activity, as if you brick (and don't think there isn't a significant chance of this --- there is), you'll have no way to recover. I hope you have a NAND backup so you can ship this Wii somewhere if things go sideways...

    I think you missed he already did it, lol. But yeah your advice and mine (do they listen? 50% of the time we see them later in the Bricked Wii section, it would seem).

    Priiloader is a brick preventative, not curative. When you install these themes, a fair % you'll find are for the WRONG REGION (even if documented otherwise). Priiloader won't prevent this kind of brick, period.

    See davepm's and my initial reply (translation: you have been warned). You think you know what you're talking about, but you don't. Want to see? Why don't you deliberately try to install the wrong region. But if you do that, we WILL see you in the bricked section.

    i read it as OP had the files for applying the theme ;P who knows how the mind of people wanting to apply themes with no protection works

    @OP: Priiloader is NOT enough protection for messing with themes. you NEED bootmii as boot2.
