    you don't need internet to connection to your wii... unless you're downgrading and crap like that.

    Just get cioscorp (included in all the sofmii packages, or you can find it seperately) and install all the ciosXX.wad wads using wadmanager or equivalent program.

    Location, location, location.
    where that stuff usually goes wrong if you dont have a network installation option is the cios installation (am I right here?).
    If thats the case you need to get that cios file off the net (not here, theyre not allowed) and put it in the base of your sd. Then proceed with 'wad installation'.

    Yes you should be fine - the only other issue you may have is full region free compat - as on 3.2 it was ARC mod 5 that gave the system menu hacks.

    you need to install preloader or starpatch to do so (preloader is probably a better choice).

    Also, you can edit your posts, try not to double post (it's generally not liked in most circumstances). Thanks.
