    Unhappy can i carry on???

    hi gang. i'm updating my wii v4.2 using messie's guide. so far i've got to D6 and am stuck. (see below) can someone please explain D6 to me please in a bit more detail as i'm really stuck here and i'm not seeing IOS70. also worst comes to worst can i carry on with D7

    D6) This will install a hacked ios70 on the Wii. Please read below very carefully, as you may brick your wii if you dont follow instructions properly. A hacked ios70 is needed for 2 reasons:
    a) Allows wiiware and VC games to run through SD card.
    b)Allows installation of priiloader, which is the only brick protection you can get if you don't have Bootmii/boot2. It is totally recommended to install priiloader.
    Here is how you install ios70:
    -Start wadmanager from HBC
    -Accept the agreement and with default settings (ios249 & SD card) press A to browse the SD card.
    -Find IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad and press A
    -Make sure you install and NEVER EVER uninstall the ios70! If you uninstall ios70 or any ios lower than 200, your Wii will suffer a slow and painful DEATH!
    -Once you are 10000% sure it says , press A to install the file.
    -Once it's done, press Home to return to HBC.
    -Now you can breath.


    D7)Installation of priiloader. After you install ios70patched, you are able to install priiloader.
    -Find the only app in HBC that does not have an icon, yet says apps\priiloader\boot.dol, and load it.
    -Read the instructions, and hold down B, and press + to use ios249
    -Once it is done, reset your wii and it will take you to Priiloader menu
    -From there, go to Hacks and check the ones you want. Block disc update and Region free ones are recommended. you can check what the others do here
    -After you are done, go to the Settings and change autoboot to System menu.
    -Reset the wii. You are done!
    If you ever banner brick your Wii (God forbid) you can access priiloader menu by holding down reset button while booting the Wii, then access HBC to undo the brick (yeah i know it rocks). After that you can install all the Wiiware/VC/channel wads you wish, without bricking fear.


    many thanks folks

    It's in the first pack you downloaded.

    That isn't clear to you? it is step by step my friend. I don't know how anyone could make it any clearer.

    First pack you downloaded. It's in the first pack at the top of the page, Part A, first pack.

    Take it slower, read carefully. This stuff is laid out plain as day on the tutorial, and continuing to not pay attention like this will likely lead you to brick the console in the future, and that's not something any of us want to see happen.

    the problem is that it's no longer on the sd card as after each step i was told to format the sd card. should i formart my sd card and put all the contents of the first download back on there or should i just put the missing file in the root of the sd card. if not not what folder should i put in into.

    thanks
