    1. downloaded and extracted moddpack (pal) to my 2GB SD card
    2. downloaded and extracted cios-pack to my sd card didnt get asked to overwrite any files and all seems well.
    3. verify sums mod pack.md5 (right clicked and verify with md5summer (no errors all green)
    4. verify Verify CIOS-PACK.md5 right clicked and verify with md5summer (no errors all green)

    now im stuck lol i havent even unboxed the wii yet so its still a virgin one just wanted to get the sd card allready and take it from there.

    can anyone help me out and tell me if im going in the right direction or im doing it all wrong????

    as i said ive only done this so far but not sure after this,

    i might be doing it all wrong and need you guys/girlys help

    im pretty clued up around a ps3 lol and hacking but this is a different ball game to me

    well for one you started in chapter two of the guide. go back and do chapter one step by step then proceed through the guide until you are done. then you will have a freshly deflowered Wii.

    lol thats what i get for skipping lol so rough idea is find out what firmware its running from out the box,

    put bannerbomb on a freash formated sd card , im guessing the 3.0 4.1 and 4.0 4.2 are the firmwares you should match to your wii's firmware as said i havent even unboxed it yet ;-)

    then where do i go from here?

    then you read and implement the rest of the guide. i know nobody wants to read but it will seriously get you there.

    if you read and follow the guide you'll have a freshly hacked wii before the evening is out

    Hard drive that is powered off the usb work too. Check that it is on the USB Compatibility List, then follow the fat32 loading guide in the spoiler below. That is after you have followed the softmod any wii guide from start to finish.

    the guide says:

    Choose the method compatible with your wii. Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed

    1.0-2.2u/e/j/k wii

    3.0-4.2u/e/j/k wiis- BannerBomb

    4.3-LetterBomb- No Game Disc Required

    4.3u/e/j/k Disc Exploits

    Other desperate options

    which wii version are you running? if, likely, 4.3u you have the choice of letterbomb (i recommend) or disc exploit

    I'm guessing your on a PAL system I'ts the 4.3E that gives you away. Read,read read, Maui's guide then follow it Through, Download all the files for your region. Unrar them & save to pc, Format SD card NOT SDHC in case you ask, Do the letterbomb first, Format SD card, add the next bit,Format SD Add the next bit,,,,And So on. Make sure you do the NAND back up,Save to PC, & install priloader,Add some custom IOS. Then you will have a modded wii, There you are, if you have RED Throw this your English will also be enhanced.lol.
