    Hello, I am just trying to get this all setup correctly and checking to make sure I am doing it all right...

    Please tell me if i'm wrong.
    From what I understand, you have to have version 3.2 or older, so My Wii is version 3.1u and I just Softmodded it
    (this is my 5th wii to softmod, probly keeping this one)

    I did the downgrade to 15
    load 15, 36menu and install patch 36 to slot 36 with all 3 set to yes
    load 36 restore 15
    cios28 r14 ios36 install wad
    installed preloader (i tried .29 and rev15)
    -at this point I think i need a differnt hacks.ini file the ones I have are probly for ver 4.1u and 4.2u
    I set it to autoboot system menu
    so then I went on to load

    So anyways so my pre loader boots up everytime the system is turned on, and im kinda stuck...

    Sooooo, 2 things
    first if im right about needing a diffenrt hack.ini because of my system version can someone point me to one?
    if not what should I do here? My system menu is basicly gone...
    I cant get to it at all anymore

    second, is there a way to backup my games FROM my wii with a higher version?
    im using dvd dumper 1.2 accross WiFi and Firefox on my PC

    Thank You!

    Use a USB loader to back up your games. It's like 10 times faster.

    USB loader to backup my games?
    I thought USB loader was only for loading games from a WBFS formated USB drive?

    You can also backup a disk with it?
    im guna go load it up and look at that, but I think you misunderstood me...
    (god I hope not, that would be cool if it was a loader and a dumper)

    EDIT:: Wow, I had no clue... What a huge waste of time today.
    Thank You, I will now be updating my Wii to 4.2u and finishing this whole thing off...

    It should be called USB Loader, it should be like USB Manager or something, loader sounds so One Way!

    That was pretty simple, Thanks FenrirWolf

    Just use Superdump. It dumps a disc to a fat partition (SD, HDD) in about 10 minutes.
