    Note: Eventhough this guide is perfectly usable, we recommend you to use this one instead![/p]
    I have updated the guide so that it is working (for 4.2) again!

    This works on LU64 Wiis!

    Another guide is provided below for Wiis that are 4.1 and lower.

    Installing HBC

    Installing Homebrew Channel

    The 4.2 Guide!

    YES, YOU CAN INSTALL HERMES CIOS222 WITH THIS.

    After following this guide to install the CIOS, you can use the offline method of HERMES CIOS installer to install it.!

    After finishing the guide, you will be able to install .wads.

    The offline method will use .wads (I guess) and so I think it will work.

    hi

    I tried your guide I already have the homebrew channel so i skipped to the part where we uninstall the iso249 with wad manager but whenever i select the iso250 my wii remote loses sync with my wii and will not reconnect i have to manually shut it off and reboot. have had a boot loader before and i have no idea what it was i installed but i think that might have something to do with it. is there anyway of wiping anything i may have done in the past with iso's or downgrading from 4.2u? i have been trying to resolve this issue for the past few days with no luck what so ever.

    I am currently running 4.2u firmware i had the hbc before and my nephew was over and updated i have been able to reinstall the hbc but can't seem to be able to do anything beyond that any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    I too am having problems when trying to choose IOS250 in wad manager.....all of the lights flash on the Wiimote and then the Wii stops responding, and the only way to restart the Wii is to hold the power button down.

    This Wii was stupidly updated through Nintendo before any HBC was installed on it, but I've managed to get the HBC on there using the Hackmii Installer 0.5, but not had any luck with a backup loader, any advise would be hugely appreciated.

    Any update on this ? I just got a Wii and it has 4.2 menu. I was able to install HBC but I cannot install cIOS. Everytime I try to do that, the system hangs and I have to hard reset it.

    Hello...this is a very step by step guide. I have a Wii which had 4.1E running and I had accidentally updated it to 4.2E. I am new to Wii and so did not do much research. I followed your steps and now I am able to play the cheap Wii game DVDs that I had bought from China through the Softchip channel. THANKS a lot!

    My questions:
    1. Can I also install Neogamma backup loader so that both Softchip and Neogamma have their own channels and I can use whichever I want to? If yes, could you please provide the steps to install Neogamma?
    2. I want to install the Wii USB GUI loader so that I can play from the HDD with the downloaded ISOs directly without having to burn them on DVD-Rs. Can you please tell me if it will work on FW4.2 and if yes, how do I install it? I want to install the Wii USB GUI loader as the UI looks really cool! (saw it on Youtube...)

    Thanks a lot in advance for your help and guidance! [​IMG]

    Mhm..I didn't take a look at the package, but from what I've read, it looks like IOS249.wad is illegal to share (if it's the one that I think). You have to exclude it, so you can share the package here.

    Also, I think we already have enough Tutorials...and some are a bit better...sorry [​IMG].
    If you only got the key, it doesn't matter...he still can activate the contact [​IMG]. And yes, I know this was a joke...[​IMG]
