    Installed from youtube and I want to know how to make my install match softmod guide

    Before I found this fine site I letterbombed my Wii and installed usb loader GX from a youtube video (I know, the cardinal sin). After finding this site I would like to know what I can do to make my install in line with what this site supports?

    It crossed my mind to follow the softmad guide but I'm not sure if that's a good idea. I tried to run hackmii from my HB channel to do a backup and got a blank screen forcing me to reboot. At that point I decided I need some help.

    Recently I ran the d2x cIOS intaller and installed V7 in an attempt to get my copy of Skylanders Giants to work with usb loader GX (portal of power only works with original game disk). I wonder if the changes I made are what caused hackmii to freeze up??

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The ANY Wii guide is the best guide to follow. Since you are having problems with a black screen, take a look at THIS THREAD. After you fix your black screen problem, continue with the ANY Wii guide.

    Thank you. I see that the softmod guide should work over the top of an allready softmodded wii. I just don't want to continue with it until I can make a backup. I'll look into the link you posted.

    Back up of what?! A half-baked non-working softmod from YOUFAIL?

    Maybe so, but the way I see it the Wii works pretty good right now, so any backup is better than no back up at all. The only issue in the world I have is that the fix for getting my portal to work is not working for me and I accept that that is a result of my own actions.

    I am hoping I can move foreword with the softmod guide that says and I quote "Softmoded Wiis, just follow the guide, don't delete anything. This guide will overwrite your old softmod!"



    I got Skylanders to work. I had to go into the game load menu and set the game ios to 222. It does bother me that I am not set up using the softmod guide but at this point I don't want to risk messing things up. I appreciate all the help that I have gotten from this forum.

    Following a wiihacks guide that has excellent support as opposed to a FAILTUBE guide without support is risky? Glad you got it working; if you ever change your mind, you know what to do.

    LOL, I'm pretty sure that didn't come out the way you meant it too. Did you just say that following the softmod guide is risky??

    Erm..He said following a Failtube guide is risky. As most of them are unsupported by the vid uploader,
    and certainly aren't supported by us. Where as the softmod any wii guide is supported by us, and
    has many happy customers.

    I meant no disrespect to nightstah, and I understood what he meant. I just saw a mistake in the way he worded it and couldn't keep my mouth shut (figuratively that it). Again I am thankful to all who take the time to help out, especially in the newbie forum where people may not know how to respond to criticism quite yet.
