    Fresh install? What do you mean by this?

    Has the Wii be modded before or do you mean an unmodded Wii you want to Softmod?

    You cannot install the twilight hack. Do you mean Homebrew Channel?

    Ok.

    Firstly. You don't need Twilight Hack as Banner Bomb is much easier and compatible with all Wii's.

    There are a heap of good Guides out there that will walk you through this step by step. My two preferred are:

    ULTIMATE System Menu 4.0 Guide
    [Guide] Fully Softmod Any Wii (everything you need), HBC + BootMii + NAND + New cIOS + PreLoader + Backup

    Read both and make sure you understand them FULLY before starting. Ask questions BEFORE starting on anything your unsure of.

    Remember, Bootmii and Preloader will save you if you make a mistake during the process.

    Ultimately you want to achieve the following, in this order:

    1. Bootmii installed and a NAND dump made and stored safely.
    2. Home Brew Channel (HBC) 1.03 installed.
    3. Upgraded to 4.1, either with Wanin's tool or officially.
    4. IOS36 patched with Trucha Bug Restorer (TBR).
    5. Prelauncher installed and relevant hacks applied.
    6. cIOS 10 or 14 installed.
    7. IOS60 patched with Dop-IOS.
    8. USB or Backup loader installed.

    The exact details of how to achieve each of the 8 points outlined above can be found in the two guides mentioned.

    If you want to download IOS's you should always use NUSD. You can get it from WiiBrew: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/NUSD

    That way you can make your own IOS wads and be sure they are legit and for the right region.

    Note that IOS16-64-v257.wad cannot be created with NUS Downloader. (It's not on Nintendo's servers.) There is no need for IOS16 any more, since we now have Trucha Bug Restorer.

    if your getting errors with wad manager
    its either you have no trucha bug or you have no wad folder on your sd card [ if using wiininja's modified verison of wad manager]
