    Hi all
    Recently I got a 3.1J Wii which has been "hard" mod long before and I try to softmod it because the Wii cannot run the new game.
    I try to used Hackmii, however I get stuck in Hackmii scam warning.
    Here is the installer.log of Hackmii.

    launching IOS 36 for the installer...
    IOS launched...
    IOS versions: Installer: 36, HBC: 0
    starting preparations
    1. I could not update my Wii through its official channel because I'm afraid that the update will brick my "hard-mod" Wii.
    2. I have not yet installed HBC into my Wii so I cannot install IOS58 :(
    Is there any other way to Soft-mod my Wii?
    ModWii has been problematic due to Bootmii server down, is there anyway I can skip the download progress and put hackwii back into the folder?

    I really need help! Thanks a lot..

    Yeah, You can Download Multi Mod Manager and boot that instead of hackmii (name it boot.elf and put it on your sdcard, then start the exploit). From here install IOS 58 (download the IOS 58.wad from NUS Downloader). After this retry hackmii

    if this is al gabberish, just say and i'll explain in more detail

    Thank you ground! :lol:
    I am a newbie in Wii soft-mod so I still have some question sd_card.jpg
    I have MMM in my apps folder, and I have replaced Hackmii's "boot.elf" with the boot.dol in MMM renaming as boot.elf in the sd card.
    Also, I have downloaded IOS58-64-6176.WAD from NUS Downloader and put it inside my SD card.
    I haven't patched the WAD, am I doing everything right?

    Thank you once again for your help!

    I have installed ios58 into my Wii. However, Hackmii still failed to work :(
    Browse in the forum and find this...

    I discovered that I am using ios30-v1040, and I found ios30-64-v2576 in NUSDownloader and cios30-v6174-v3.6.wad in my Darkv1.1m folder.
    However, I read another comment saying that installing ios30 other than v1040 in 3.1 will brick my Wii.
    So.. any thoughts on that? :(

    Thank you so much for everyone's help here!

    When I had bad IOS or something worng on my Wii, I run Pimp My Wii and fix it!, but the difference is that your Wii is 3.1J and mine is 4.3U, but I think it will work.

    Thanks, goku junior!
    I have consider pimp my wii but give up because it's otherwise known as brick my wii :(
    I do not dare to do anything risky because it has been hard mod before,
    It's hard to find someone who know how to fix it nowadays...
    Anyway, thanks for your advice! :)

    Still wonder if it will brick my wii if ciosv30-6174 is installed in 3.1J :/

    Guys, I have successfully softmod my Wii using ModWii + Multi Mod Manager + Hackmii!
    Below are some of the things that I did:
    Wii Version: V3.1J Hard-Mod before
    Problem: Hackmii Freeze at scam warning

    1. Install and Use ModWii. To solve the problem of missing Hackmii file, learn from person66 in ModMii Official Support Topic:

    2. As we need to install "cios30-v6174 (or updated ios30-2576, no stubs), updated ios31-36, and ios58", I have renamed the boot.elf from hackMii(which is the original file in the COPY_TO_SD) as 2_boot.elf, and rename the boot.dol in Multi Mod Manager to boot.elf, in order to boot from MMM instead.

    3. From WAD Manager in MMM, I install the WAD/IOS30-35, 58.

    4. Reboot from 2_boot.elf again, I just boot it up using MMM, just find the 2_boot.elf, press A, and it will start itself.

    5. THE MIRACLE HAPPENS!!! The scam finally didnt freeze!!! Then just follow the instruction from MODWII.

    Once again thanks a lottttt, guys!!! Finally I could play Just Dance 4 in my Wiiiiiii :-)))))))))))))))
