    Noob Questions

    Sorry I am new to the whole wii hacking deal and was needing some tips. I have softmodded my wii using My Wii downloads deal I have autolauncher installed and HBC channel. I tryed to help my brother load his up but his is a new wii he just bought it a couple of days ago. I just did abunch of read read read till my eyes bleed and learned alot about new LU 64 65 deal is I guess why it didnt work but we got to the load Boot2.dol file and couldnt get farther. Sorry just some like background there.

    Well anyway he wants to mod his still and was looking at Doggeggs runthrough and was wondering is it safe to load that at where his Wii and mine is? Mine is running fine with laucher and HBC and his is just ran that walkthrough to that point but loads fine and all that.

    Just wanting to make sure I dont brick his or my wii and was wondering if I should just leave mine as is or do that walkthrough? Would like to have the backup launcher and files that come with it.

    ok first off if your wii works fine than there is no reason to do anything to it correct?
    if you want to modify another wii look in the settings menu at the top right side and see what the system menu version it is then see if the guide is ok for you. the only other issue for a new wii is weather it is capable of playing backups from disk. this is because they have a different chip used for the dvd drive. they can still be modified to play from usb and sd cards.
    is this what you are asking?

    I was just wanting to be able to run Hackmii on my wii and usb loader and stuff in the future my softmod is pretty old and just has the backup laucher to run dvds. The other wii is fitting of all the specs of Dogeggs runthrough was just abit worried since other softmod we used on it wont go beyond the halfway point didnt realize it might not run dvds. Its a Lu 64 running on 3.4u its a virgin wii no upgrade yada yada just started that softmod deal and wasnt able to finish that is only part that worries me

    at what exact point will it not get past? be sure you are looking at the correct guide for your system menu version. and if you are talking about installing a cios, if so there are guides for this problem.

    are you certain bootmi wasn't installed the first time you ran hackmi to get homebrew channel setup?

    The softmod I was using didnt have bootmii or hackmii in it its just runs from sd downgrades the IOS35. then you run wad manager 1.4 then load it in Boot2.dol. His stops at that point it wont load the boot2.dol it just stops working on a wad manager1.3 screen. Its not a softmod from this site its one from another not sure how to tell what exact softmod it is.

    did you ask at the site you used the tutorial from? hard for me to understand what they were trying to get you to do. seems peculiar.
