    i usually use softmii to install themes. just a little leery of trying to install a 4.0 theme on system menu 4.1. not really sure if there were significant enough changes to effect installation. also, i hear mym is the way to go. just looking for some feedback. or if anyone has converted darkwii to 4.1 and would be willing to share info as to how they converted. i'm all ears. any help is much appreciated.

    thanks,
    brandon


    4.1U
    bootmii as boot2(nand backed up)
    preloader .29

    If you have bootmii as boot2 and a NAND backup, do it.
    I heard that if you install a 4.0 theme on 4.1, you might not be able to access wii settings.

    Well, I haven't tried it yet, but from what I can tell:

    * Both (default) theme files from 4.0 and 4.1 are the exact same size.
    * They are identical in many parts. There's some differences though...

    4.0U Theme file:
    Code:
    File: 00000001.app
    CRC-32: 7df49d15
    MD4: a7eca5b857c83952f8b6ac672fe664bd
    MD5: 611d8d5e1f7ce778ba4c44d1b4c2910b
    SHA-1: ef67c77f8b6f0d39be17f2435e1a0f3d4c45c654
    4.1U Theme file:
    Code:
    File: 00000001.app
    CRC-32: 24e35efe
    MD4: 9c823aca992defa52787e70968279fb0
    MD5: 6b939de8222800733f4c44ae4eadb325

    That's probably just the 4.1 text in the Wii settings.

    I've successfully copied 0000007b.app (for NTSC) using Nickasa's FSToolBox and used a mym script with mymenu update it then installed it with the softmii installer. Also with preloader hacks and bootmii installed.

    Making a CSM (an edited app file, essentially) from the 000001.app from the System Menu 4.1 WAD I got with NUS Downloader and a MYM file I had compatibile with 4.0 worked fine, so it seems at least some themes work. Just make sure you have a way of rolling it back (such as BootMii) just in case.

    According to Wiibrew installing themes with either SoftMii or MyMenuify will bannerbrick your wii on 4.1

    That would seem to not be true in all cases.

    Always some exceptions to the rules. I am not semi-bricked and everything is functional. Best advice one can give.... if you're going to mess around; respect and love your nand; make a backup first!!! If necessary introduce it to it's former self and remember old times together.

    Sorry to digress and yes I'm being lazy, where is Darkwii Extended theme I'd like to check it out. So many nice things are said about it. I'm using the Dark Mage theme and I forget who crafted it (sorry).

    I generally don't like bumping to say thanks but thanks guys, and drats! This is for PAL not NTSC, I'll have to wait or not be so lazy [​IMG]

    EDIT: Being patient and lazy pays off....untested (at this time) 4.1U version of Darkwii Extended is now downloadable in the previously mentioned thread above, dig it kids!
