sad little noob that cannot title a thread
Ok first off, Hi :) I got my first Wii I saw a Wii that was softhacked, I tried to do the same. I did NOT brick.... yet....
here is my setup and steps taken thus far:
system menu ver 3.4u
installed via bannerbomb hackmii_installer_v0.8.zip= Mii and homebrew
backed up nand full
Used WBFS Manager 3.0 to prep my 500gb usb laptop HDD in a box drive.
backed up an ISO and installed on the drive.
Treid and failed to install 12411-cIOSX_rev20b-Installer.zip
found and installed TBR as below:
1: Copy files to SD card , all IOS go on the root, the 3 apps in the 'apps' folder.
2: Go to Homebrew channel and run Trucha Bug Restorer, load IOS36, press 1, read the warnings then select 'downgrade IOS15', select to load IOS from SD card then let it do its job.
3: Run Trucha Bug Restorer again, this time using d-pad left/right to change the IOS, load IOS15 on first screen, select the IOS36 menu & install patched (select 'yes' on all 3 patches) IOS36 to slot 36, again using IOS from SD card.
4: Run Trucha Bug Restorer again, load IOS36 and this time select restore IOS15.
now installed 12411-cIOSX_rev20b-Installer.zip selecting IOS36
still no brick....whew....
tried wiiflow, no go, hdd goes to sleep Wii locks up.
Tried 12411-cIOSX_rev20b-Installer.zip hdd stays awake but Wii still locks up.
I have access to a working softhacked Wii, can I take a Nand image of that one and restore it on my Wii?
P.S. forgot to add, this Wii was mod chipped b4 I dont know what chip, I got a few copied dvd's with it.
they work, but my real goal is to have all my games on the USB HDD so my little kids dont wreck the orig dvd's
