    bootmii problem

    last year i successfully did a soft mod to my 4.3u wii using wiihacks help

    i want to do the darkwii system menu that i found from this site (removed Fail Tube Video)

    when i first did the softmod i made a nandback up but i have the file on another computer, which is not at my place. i want to make another nand back up. my problems besides itching to do the darkwii mod is when i load bootmii in home brew my 4.3u wii shuts off and the blue led light flashes on the wii.

    what i want to know is why does my led light flash and wii freeze up when i try to load bootmii from homebrew? also, is there another way to make a new backup aside from bootmii?

    Firstly don't follow fail tube guides. Do u still have bootmii files on your SD card?

    i don't have the folder on my sd card. the instructions for soft moding had said for me to cut the folder and paste it on my computer. i saved the folder on a computer that is not at my place.

    i think that youtube link would work. i googled the download link and found the same file on several websites which was the same size as the youtube link

    You need the BootMii files for it to work. If you don't have access to your originals you'll have to use the HackMii installer to create new files. You are actually worried about the failtube video?

    I wouldn't consider following a fail tube video and i would only install a theme on a boot2 wii with a nand backup available

    i COMPLETELY agree don't mess with themes, if you theme brick good luck fixing it, only stupidly mess around with themes is you have boot2 and FULL nand back up!!!! if your stupid enough to follow a fail tube, guess you'll do the theme, and then come tail between legs asking for help!!!!! FAIL lmao

    system menu change is a brains boasting hack. i'm not touching any themes or menu changers until i know i have my key available.

    i posted the youtube link as an example of using a .wad to do a system menu change. searching from google, i found HB programs and self editing windows programs to edit the system menu.

    i know mario doesn't appreciate a brick with out a coin, and i sure wouldn't want to cash coin to replace a brick.

    whoa, cool! i just ran settings, loaded a game from cd and loaded cfg loader, shut off the wii and turned it back on.

    the only change is i think i lost priiloader with the installation. i better install it before that banner bomb or brick happens

    the darkwii wad i used to convert my system menu worked. after installing the wad priiloader was deleted or not functioning. i reinstalled priiloader and had an issue of unable to find hack_hash after installing priiloader. to cure the missing file i erased the new priiloader i had installed than reinstalled it again. when i went in to priiloader menu i just enabled old hack.ini file.
