    Part of the guide should be about installing cios on your wii. Looks like you skipped that part? It's what MMM is used for. usb loaders need cIOS to work. Most common are 202 222 223 224 from hermes and 249 250 from waninkoko and davebaol. 236 is important as well, as applications use it to install stuff on the wii nand. So, reread the html help and find the part you skipped.

    All loaders work with those same cios. You have "configurable usb loader", "usbloader_gx" and "wiiflow" as most used ones. There is also Hermes uloader.
    Installing a cios involves modifiing the wii nand contents. This is never 100% safe. As long as you don't get power failures during the process, you shouldn't worry to much. Never install any ios below 200 unless you really know what you are doing and why you are doing it.
    So, basically, some good advice is: make sure you have a bootmii backup of your wii working nand. If you don't have that somewhere safe on your pc, make one first. Another good thing is having priiloader on your wii, as it protects your softmod against disc updates and online updates.
    Multi Mod Manager is a good program to install cios wad's. I usually switch to ios 236 before I start a wad install. (Needs to be installed first.)

    follow your guide and don't skip steps

    If you have more questions, they should be accompanied by quotes of your ModMii guide and u should reference what part you're having trouble with

    FYI, the output of ModMii Skin and ModMii Classic are the same (ie. after your done using your PC to prepare your sd card, everything is the same)

    Then start over the guide; if you're unsure, then simply regenerate a new guide from ModMii saying that your Wii is a virgin.

    did u complete all the steps?

    That means, did u install the homebrew channel, bootmii and make a nand backup?
    Did u install your custom list of WADs?
    Did you install priiloader (and enable system menu hacks)?

    If your answer to any of the above was NO, it means u skipped steps... AGAIN. And you should start from step 1.

    these are the steps i done

    1) opened the envelope letterbomb installed took me to the screen about if you payed for it you were scammed press 1.installed the homebrew channel finished installed bootmii
    took me to the main screen.

    2) done a nandback up it was successful went to the homebrew channel.
    3) went to IOS5236 installed something

    4) Priiloader stuffed around

    5) Simple IOS patcher,patched something i think..
    6) went to multil mod manager installed all wads which made it work,the problem was that i didn't install them!!

    and AGAIN! thank you so much for the help,before you told me i didn't know about the wads :)

    You would have known if you read everything and not skipped things. It's mistakes like skipping steps or not reading everything that causes bricked wii's.
