Hello, first time User here. I have been trying to softmod my Wii (4.3E) for the last few days. I cannot seem to install BootMii as IOS or Boot2. Which is strange since I read everywhere that I should always be able to install it as IOS.

When I just skip installing BootMii, I seem to not be able to do the cIOS Installation for cIOS 249 base 56 v10 beta53-alt and cIOS 250 base 57 v10 beta52.

I only get cIOS v6 as the newest option. Why is that?
I followed the complete softmod guide by the reddit user mobclutch.

I also reformatted the SD card I was using to FAT32, renamed it and made sure not to have it locked or anything, but it just won't write on it for the BootMii.
I tried the following SD Cards: San Disc Micro SD 1GB + 2GB,Kingston SD 2GB, Toshiba SDHC 4GB.

Keep in mind I WAS able to install the Homebrew Channel, but not ModMii as an IOS or Boot2... and neither install the recommended IOS version of 8 or higher.
I also used the information provided here, but was not able to find out what exactly the issue is. As I said, I am afraid to install any IOS without knowing which one I need exactly. But to install USB loaders, I need to install a recent IOS.
In another thread, Cyan mentions that v8 would be good enough. I have no idea why my Installer only allows me to go up to cIOS v6, does it have to do with the lack of BootMii?

Am I doing something wrong? Can I bypass this? Is it my SD cards' fault?
I kinda feel like it's pointless to look for another SD card since it didn't work with the cards I used, and they are on the list of compatible SD cards from the wiibrew-wiki.
I have a white Wii (4.3E) and it says "Model No. RVL-001 (EUR) C2006 Nintendo" on the back. I tried to do the cIOS Installation without Internet access, but according the the above cIOS Install guide (grabbing the WAD-files via NUS downloader).

Thank you in advance for your help! I feel like a total scrub with this.

PS: If IOS v6 would suffice to launch a USB-Loader, then just tell me how to proceed correctly.

Try modmii
how? I downloaded that but don't understand what it wants from me. I put everything in there and a browser window popped up but it did not tell me what to do about the IOS.
Is that how you use it? Just input everything and follow the modmii instructions?

Try running the modmii wizard and mod your wii as if it has never been nodded before

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

If that doesn't solve it, run modmii's homebrew channel fix wizard
hey XFlak, I would usually complain about the shameless plug, but that actually worked like a charm! Thank you for ModMii

I am wondering right now: What is the safest way to turn off the Wii if it freezes on the start of a game?

There's no unsafe way unless you decide to try using a hammer, lol.

Just hold the power button for 5 seconds. That should work 99.99% of the time, if it doesn't, just unplug it from the wall.
thanks a lot for your input, and for what you do for the community XFlak, Modmii saved my sanity.

You can close this thread, I have been helped and blessed.
Time to play the Metroid Prime games in full for the first time now :)
