    I have a brand new Wii, it's updated to 4.2U and I'm using the Simplistic Wii Mod guide at http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171901 to softmod. So far everything is working as described in the guide, except when I get to the part after running the Hackmii Installer. After I'm in the Homebrew Channel I take the SD card out as per the guide and backup the created Bootmii folder to my PC. Side note: I had to install Bootmii as IOS as boot2 was not available.

    Anyways, as I said I backed up the Bootmii folde rto my PC and am now stuck on the step that describes going to the work/cboot2/try this 1st folder and copy the Bootmii folder,boot.dol and startup.elf from the try this 1st folder onto the SD card root. Well the problem is the cboot2.rar file I got from emailing the gmail address mentioned in the guide, doesn't contain the above listed folders and files. It contains only the following.

    /bootmii/
    /bootmii/armboot.bin
    /bootmii/bootmii.ini
    /bootmii/ppcboot.elf
    startup.elf

    I don't see try this 1st anywhere.

    What's wrong? Someone please help!

    mediafire is the one I have and it's only a file named cboot2.rar.

    rapidshare can only be downloaded 10 times and has reached it's max. Can you email me the appropriate rar file/s I need?

    At this point in the modding process of your guide will I screw anything up if I were to shut the Wii down? I'm basically sitting in the HBC stuck on this step of your guide. So can I go back to the System Menu or shut down the Wii at this point, without something completely messing up?

    The Wii has the latest update installed, I guess 4.2 or whatever just came out and I was only able to install Bootmii as an IOS. At this point am I okay? I'm just asking, because what if I can't get a hold of the right rar file with the right files in it tonight? will I be able to continue from here in the morning or whenever I get the right rar file?

    Thanks for your help!!

    I got to the DOP-IOS v8 part of the guide.

    I pressed right till IOS53
    I pressed A to select yes and sig hash check

    On the screen it now says

    Downloading Title 00000001-00000035 v5149.....
    TMD... (from SD) Done
    Ticket... (from SD) Done
    Content 1/14 ID: 00000013.... (from SD) Done
    ...
    Content 14/14 ID: 00000015.... (from SD) Done

    and it's just sitting there. How do I get it to continue, so I can do the same thing for IOS55 and IOS70?
