Thanks, I will be using 'Full hacking guide for 4.2 system menus!!!!' as a guide. I do have on question though. When i installed THE HOMEBREW CHANNEL, i did not use the pack that was provided in this tutorial. I used what was mentioned on the BANNERBOMB page (HackMii Installer v0.6 + BannerBomb 4.2.rar and abd6a_v200.zip)
Am i still able to skip step A, or will i need to repeat it? (As in this guide it has two extra files i am not familiar with - IOS38-64-v3610.wad and IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad)
The ios70 is the ios that 4.2 menu uses so you dont want to leave that out of the guide. The ios38 wad though really wont do you much UNLESS you plan on running backup games down the road. That ios is used for backup loaders.
If I have helped you in any way, please thank me by pressing the little thanks button.
Yes but if you look at the guide, in the pack that it says to download in step a, it says it comes with:
IOS38-64-v3610.wad and IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad
Are these files used during the installation of the HBC or are they used in a later step?
They are used later. Make sure you read it carefully.
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
As you can see they are used later. Read the guide.
