    So I finally caught up with the mod-free hacking of the Wii, I've done the twilight hack and installed the homebrew channels.

    I've downloaded the backup launcher and the .zip file includes 3 folders called backup_launcher, cios)installer, and source. I don't know how to install it though, in the wiki page that has the guide it says:

    Instructions
    ---------------------

    1. Install new cIOS. Make sure its properly installed
    2. Load Backup Launcher and play game.

    Can anyone tell me where I might be able to find instructions on the installation of the cIOS and the Backup Launcher.

    put the folders "backup_launcher" and "cios installer" in the "apps" folder that should be on your sd card and then fire up homebrew channel and run cios and then run backup launcher

    Thanks a lot!

    I don't want to create another thread for this, but do you guys have any recommendations as far as which DVD-R's work best? Also I am on OS X, so as far as burning discs will Disk Utility work or should I download a different program?

    Few more questions, to install the cIOS installer it seems that I need to go online. Now if I connect my Wii online, can I just reject the new update and continue to install the cIOS installer? If not is there a way around this?

    I have pretty much any files you need in my signature for the wii including a how to and files it takes from the online server

    I believe toast is good for mac , but i havent used it - it may be a bit of trial and error on burning , but your on the right track with -r to strart with

    Nice guide, answered a lot of my questions do you have one on how to patch games? (OS X) Or is that much simpler than I think it is?

    You no longer need to patch the iso, just download/rip the iso and then burn it.

    I am on OS X as well, so far Disk Utility and Verbatim DVD-Rs have been great, no coasters at all. I just select the ISO, click burn, confirm max speed (4x) and it burns then verifies. All of my 10 or so games have worked fantastically. If Disk Utility doesn't work for you, you could always try Toast as well.

    I keep on getting a -1 error during the Wad manager installation.

    here's what I get after selecting Wii SD slot:

    Initializing libfat, please wait... OK!
    retrieving device contents, please wait... ERROR! (ret = -1)

    and then it restarts my system.

    I have gotten this with djtaz's files.

    very strange - that should work fine with the files in my zip - did you put the 0000001 folder onto the SD card as well ?

    Maybe you can confirm but I think I might be using the wrong zip, I downloaded the one in your signature "3.3u_Update_Fix_____WITH_out______IOS16 2" and I don't see a 0000001 folder.

    I would think thats the wrong one alright - thats only if you updated your system to version 3.3 or above

    3.2 is the perfect system to be on - stay on it as long as you can - get the files in the first link and try them

    Just wanna make sure, the file in the first link is that WiiBackupv0.3b.zip??

    Also is this going to ask me to connect to the internet to install the cIOS? and if it does is it possible to reject Nintendo's new update?

    Thanks for all the help!

    Thanks a lot DJ everything works perfect! Now just gotta get myself some blank DVDs and torrents.

    I really can't believe this; I couldn't believe it when I heard of such things for the DS and now for the Wii. Beautiful.

    One more question, is there any ways to check if a certain torrent is good or bad without having to go through the whole download, burning and just to find out that it's bad dump. Is there certain groups that are known for better releases?

    Officially : Your should only use backup copies of games that you already have - and check that your state allows the legitimate usage of backup copies so that you dont break the law there.
    Unofficially - Your in a different region to me but theres one for Pal backups that are great - someone else may be able to advise you but obviously no linking to illegal sites would be allowed.

    edit - ohh and congrats on getting it going - btw - the wii dumper will back up an original game from your wii to your PC if you want to test and know the ISO works - aslo scrubbed games are small to download for testing.
