I'm just trying to help out those who are already soft-modded with a clean, concise set of instructions. If you have any suggestions, please PM me! This tutorial assumes you are already soft modded. If you are on 4.2 and not soft modded, head over here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171901 PREP WORK 1. Download the following: HackMii Installer v0.5 http://bootmii.org/download/ Dop-IOS v8 http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Dop-IOS NUSD Downloader 1.2 http://wiibrew.org/wiki/NUS_Downloader WAD Manager 1.4 http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source=hp...d15299a959dbb33 2. Update the NUSD database by copying the 9/29 code on the page below and pasting it on "database.xml" where NUSD exe is located http://wiibrew.org/wiki/NUS_Downloader/database 4. Run NUSD Downloader, check the "Pack -> WAD" box then click "Database". Select the appropriate IOS and System versions then click "Start NUS Download!". Download one-by-one until completed. IOS9 (v778) IOS12 (v269) IOS13 (v273) IOS14 (v520) IOS15 (v523) IOS17 (v775) IOS21 (v782) IOS22 (v1037) IOS28 (v1550) IOS31 (v3349) IOS33 (v3091) IOS34 (v3348) IOS35 (v3349) IOS36 (v3351) IOS37 (v3869) IOS38 (v3867) IOS53 (v5406) IOS55 (v5406) IOS56 (v5405) IOS57 (v5661) IOS60 (v6400) *optional: will install as a stub IOS* IOS61 (v5405) Shopping Channel (v17) *optional: do you use the channel or not?* SystemMenu 4.2 (v481 for USA) *make sure you choose the region of your Wii* TRANSFERRING FILES TO SD CARD 5. Unzip HackMii 0.5 and place the "boot.elf" in the "apps\hackmii" folder or whatever folder name you had before. 6. Unzip Dop-IOS v8 and place the "boot.dol" in the "apps\dopios" folder or whatever folder name you had before. 7. Unzip Wad Manager 1.4 and place the "boot.dol" in the "apps\wad_manager" folder or whatever folder name you had before. 8. Copy the WADs you downloaded from NUSD and place in the "wads" folder. ON THE WII 9. Insert the SD card, start HBC. 10. Run the HackMii v0.5 installer. Update HBC and BootMii as IOS or boot2 11. Run DOP-IOSv8. Download and sig hash patch (trucha) IOS70. 12. Run WAD Manager 1.4 and install all packed WADs you downloaded except IOS60 (see below). Skip the Shopping Channel if you don't need or use it. Do not exit WAD Manager until they all others are installed! 13. Once completed, verify the Wii is running 4.2 system menu. If you'd like to install IOS60 as a stub, run Wad Manager from HBC again then install the IOS60 wad. UPGRADING TO 4.2 WITHOUT HACKMII v0.5 ***RISKY! Not recommended by Zektor or Wii soft-mod purists. If it fails, use bannerbomb v2 to get HBC back*** 1. Skip #10 (do not install HackMii v0.5) and #13 (do not install IOS60 as Preloader needs it) 2. Update "hacks.ini" for 4.2U from http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Preloader/hacks on your SD card 3. Use WAD Manager to install all WADs. After completion, press the "HOME" button on the Wiimote to go back to HBC (HAXX title) 4. Run Preloader v0.29 installer 5. Get within arms reach to your Wii. Restart it and immediately hold the RESET button to get into Preloader. 6. Enable the "Disable HAXX,DVDX,RZDx checks" 7. Restart the Wii again and HBC (HAXX title) should still be installed. Congratulations! You have now bypassed the need for HackMii v0.5 and not yet released Preloader v0.30 Why it works? You are effectively disabling the function (using Preloader) in SM 4.2 that deletes HBC and DVDX before it even has the chance to boot up for the FIRST time. I know its mean! LOL! NOTES 1. This tutorial should work with SM 4.1 (i.e. 3.1, 3.2, 3.4) and below but Zektor (and the scene) strongly advises you do a dump of the NAND first. If you already had BootMii in the past, you probably already have a NAND backup. Just keep it safe. 2. You can effectively use WAD Batch Installer v0.1 instead of WAD Manager. Move all the WADs from the "wad" folder to a new "installer" folder on the root of the SD card. Be careful and do not move the wads you don't want to install in the "installer" folder (i.e. IOS60, Shopping Channel). UPDATE: this errors out after so many WADs according to SpaceJump. 3. If you are attempting the "UPGRADING TO 4.2 WITHOUT HACKMII v0.5" set, make sure you use WAD Manager so you can return to HBC when completed.
