    Seeing as ModMii is a WINDOWS app, yes.

    You install .csm or .app files with mymenuify. You may find themes in .mym format in which case you may need Thememii to convert them.

    Heres some themes to get you started (as well as a tut and link to Thememii)

    looking at the tut im a bit scared by the medium/high risk of bricking! i have priiloader, backup dumps and boot2...am i panicing over nothing?

    thinking about it im always loading straight into HBC so theres not really much point in me messing with the theme just yet, i dont think id ever see the system menu again anyway!

    so long as you have priiloader you are safe

    just boot to HBC load mymenuify and install your base app or a theme you know is fine will fix any theme brick

    but i can say all the themes from us (wii theme team) have been fully tested

    you need to get thememii to make the csm use the one in my thread (just click on my sig)

    then use mymenuify to install the csm

    Fucked up how? You DL the .mym file in the links, use thememii to convert to .csm and then use mymenuify to install the .csm.

    I guess he was thinking of when you installed new system menu wads (they can sometimes be corrupt), before mymenufiy.

    These themes have been tested over and over before release. Its got to be operator error of some sort. Ive tried nearly all of these with no error. Unless the wrong base .appp is being used when converting

    Not if you're getting them from bad source or bad download (if you have terrible internet)

    I realize that, but the question you were asking was about BlackHolySlam.
