    Long story how it happened, but everything on my SD card got erased before I was able to follow through with Step 3. However, I do still have the NAND backup on my PC.
    When I turn on my Wii without the SD card, it still works and has the Homebrew Channel.

    What should I do now? Should I start over and do Steps 1 & 2 again on my SD card? I already have the Homebrew Channel on my Wii.
    Do I need to just restore the NAND using the NAND backup I have? Everything on my SD card that I had from Step 1 and 2 got erased by someone.
    I haven't gotten to actually do anything past Step 1 & 2, I was about to do Step 3 but I don't want to risk messing everything up now that I don't have anything on my SD card anymore.

    I know this probably sounds really stupid, but I'm not tech-savvy and I wasn't even the one who deleted everything on my SD card.

    You can use up to 8 GB SDHC. I currently have a 4 GB one and it works just fine with my Wii.

    I feel like something is missing. Step 1 details how to install HBC then in step 2 the directions to backup your NAND include using bootmii but there was no mention of installing bootmii between the 2 steps. Am I missing something?

    Hi, just bought a vanilla wii. Do i need internet to be able to hack it? I use my mobile as a hotspot for lurking on gbatemp and those stuff... If it's anything internet heavy i won't be able to do much to it :(

    I'm trying to follow this guide, as text guides are somewhat easier for me to follow, then compliment with yours

    Is it too old?

    so i installed cios 236 and d2x cios 249 base 56 ad cios 250 base 57, but when i try and run games with usbloader it will have the game tell me to check my disk. is this becase my wii has no diskdrive? see i removed the diskdrive so i can do other mods to it and it didnt work any way.

    First if all, thank you for the guide it has been very helpful. I'm current stuck at step 5 where I'm supposed to install IOS249[56]-d2x9b47.wad . My problem is that I can't find that in my wads folder. So how do I get this .wad? Or how was I supposed to have it in the first place? - Thx in advance
