    *If your Wii ever freezes, hold the power button on the Wii for 5 seconds to power it off then try again.
    *Don’t ever accept a new Nintendo update without first googling to see if it’s safe. The last update (to 4.3) was released in late June 2010 and is NOT safe to accept. If you accept an official Nintendo update after modding the Wii, you may lose some or all of your modifications.
    *Never uninstall a system menu or IOS
    *Do not install untested wads/themes without Bootmii or Priiloader installed.

    1) INSTALLING THE HOMEBREW CHANNEL (HBC) AND BOOTMII
    =================================================


    Note: if this Wii was previously modified, and it has either the HBC, BootMii as Boot2, or a Forwarder Channel installed, you can use that instead of an exploit (as it does not require physically owning a specific game).

    If using BootMii as Boot2 to install the HBC, copy the 'BootMii' folder from your previous BootMii install to the root of your SD Card (or download it using ModMii). Then boot your wii, BootMii will load, go To the SD menu, load bootmini.elf. This will load the Hackmii Installer allowing you to reinstall the HBC.

    If using a Forwarder Channel, just save the boot.elf/dol from the app you want to load (ie. SD:\apps\hackmii_installer\boot.elf or SD:\apps\MMM\boot.dol) to the location used by your SPECIFIC Forwarder Channel (ie. SD:\apps\usbloader\boot.dol). Then start the channel and the Hackmii Installer will load allowing you to reinstall the HBC. Note, if your forwarder channel only loads dol's and not elf's, launch MMM's boot.dol, then use its "App Manager" to load the Hackmii Installer.


    INDIANA PWNS EXPLOIT
    --------------------

    REQUIREMENTS: * A copy of LEGO Indiana Jones
    * A non-SDHC card (SDHC cards don't work)

    A. Load the LEGO Indiana Jones game at least once
    (otherwise you won't be able to copy over the hack).

    B. Backup your personal LEGO Indiana Jones save file before copying the files to your SD Card (if applicable):

    a) Put your SD card in your Wii and turn it on.
    b) Go into Wii Options - Data Management - Save Data - Wii
    c) Find your Indiana save, click on it, click "Copy", and click Yes. Now erase the save file from the Wii.
    d) Put your SD card in your computer, and copy the "private" folder from the card to a safe place. Alternatively you can temporarily rename it.

    C. Copy the files from the COPY_TO_SD to the root of your SD card (if you haven’t already) and insert it into your Wii

    D. Go into Wii Options - Data Management - Save Data - Wii - SD Card
    then copy over the "Indiana Pwns" save that corresponds to your region.

    E. Play the Lego Indiana Jones game. Load the new save file.

    You will be in the Main hall, walk towards the camera,
    enter the first door on the right (Indy's left) and go into the 'Courtyard'.
    Walk to the end and enter the 'Art Room', you will see a podium with 2 characters on it, talk to the left one.

    Hit left twice (scrolling through his items) to choose the switch option (Black silhouette with a white arrow to another black silhouette)
    Hit A to launch the boot.elf/dol file saved on the root of your SD card.


    This runs the Hackmii Installer (and silently/automatically installs BootMii as IOS). Use the installer to install the Homebrew Channel (HBC) and Bootmii as Boot2 if possible. If you cannot install BootMii as Boot2, you also need to 'prepare an SD Card' for BootMii (as the 'BootMii' folder is required to launch BootMii as IOS or Boot2).

    Note: If you get a 'no vulnerable IOS' error message, run ModMii again and this time select the 'Hackmii Solutions' option instead of 'ModMii Wizard' and follow the new instructions before continuing this guide.

    After you exit the hackmii installer, you will be taken to the HBC.
    Hit the home button. In the top right corner you will see the IOS used by the HBC.

    If the HBC is using an IOS other than IOS58 or your homebrew channel is upside-down, make a note of it as it applies later in the guide (you will have to reinstall the HBC).

    If it is using IOS58 and your HBC is not upside-down, you can skip the Reinstall The Homebrew Channel step when you get to it.




    2) MAKING A NAND BACKUP
    ====================

    While inside the Homebrew Channel, load BootMii by pressing home and clicking Launch Bootmii.
    Press the power button on the wii 3 times to get to the last option, then press the reset button. [You can also navigate with a Gamecube controller]

    Press reset to choose the first option, then follow the directions on the screen to make your NAND backup. [Bad blocks are no problem.]

    Backup the Bootmii folder, NAND.bin, and keys.bin elsewhere and erase from the sd card (or rename it). You'll need these in case of emergencies, so don't lose them.
    Go back to The Homebrew Channel.

    Note: if Bootmii was installed as boot2, then it will show up as soon as the Wii is turned on AS LONG AS it finds the bootmii folder (mentioned above) on the root of the SD card.




    3) INSTALL A PATCHED IOS236
    ========================

    Start the Homebrew Channel.

    VERY IMPORTANT!
    In the Homebrew channel, if you do not have a working internet connection already set up, you will see an icon flashing in the bottom right corner of the screen indicating its inability to initialize the network. You MUST wait for the icon to stop flashing OR let it flash for 30-60 seconds before proceeding otherwise these apps will error shortly after being launched. If you encounter this harmless error, power off the Wii and repeat this step from the beginning. To increase your chances of success, add a working internet connection to your Wii via the official Wii Settings Menu, but be sure to say "No" when asked to perform an update.


    You only need to perform ONE of the below methods.


    Method A: Using IOS236 Installer
    --------------------------------

    After waiting 30-60 seconds for the HBC to attempt to initialize the network, launch "IOS236 Installer v5 MOD".
    Note: This app must be launched using HBC v1.0.7 or higher in order to work properly.

    It should say "IOS236 installation is complete!" and return to The Homebrew Channel.

    If you experience errors, keep trying and it should eventually work.
    If you continue to experience errors you can try using Simple IOS Patcher instead.
    Once either method successfully installs IOS236, you can move onto the next step.


    Method B: Using Simple IOS Patcher
    ----------------------------------

    After waiting 30-60 seconds for the HBC to attempt to initialize the network, launch "IOS236 Installer".
    Note: This app must be launched using HBC v1.0.7 or higher in order to work properly.

    Choose "IOS36" (already selected by default) and push A,
    Select "Install IOS to slot" and choose 236,
    Select "Install patched IOS36" leaving the 4 patches set to "yes" and press A,
    Choose "Load IOS from SD card".

    Confirm your choice with the A button,
    When prompted, push A to continue the installation.
    When the installation is over you'll be back at the Main Menu,
    Then push B button to exit.

    If you experience errors, keep trying and it should eventually work.
    If you continue to experience errors you can try using IOS236 Installer instead.
    Once either method successfully installs IOS236, you can move onto the next step.




    4) INSTALL PRIILOADER
    ==================

    Launch "Priiloader 236" via the Homebrew Channel

    After the Priiloader Installer loads, press + to install it.

    You may get an error for "loader.ini" and/or "password.txt" simply ignore these.

    After successfully installing Priiloader, access it by powering off the Wii,
    then powering it back on while holding reset until you see the Priiloader menu.

    You should install some system menu hacks now (by going to System Menu hacks option).

    RECOMMENDED HACKS: Block Disc Updates, Block Online Updates, Replace Health Screen, Auto-Press A at Health Screen, Region-Free Everything, remove no copy save file protection, and Move Disc Channel.

    The priiloader menu is white by default, you can change it to black in the Priiloader settings if you prefer.

    One of the special functions of Priiloader is that it can autoboot any app/file instead of the system menu. Some apps (like crazyIntro) can't be used without it.
    For details on how to do so, visit <a href="http://www.completesoftmodguide.tk/system-hacks/priiloader" target="_blank">http://www.completesoftmodguide.tk/system-hacks/priiloader</a>




    5) INSTALL WADS
    ============

    Load Multi-Manager Mod (MMM) via the HomeBrew Channel.
    If IOS236 is not already loaded, select "Load another IOS", then select IOS236

    Note: If this step fails with error -ret 2011 or other, you may need to retry patching IOS236. If the Wii was previously softmodded, you can try loading cIOS250 (or others like 202,222,223,224,236,249)

    In Multi-Manager Mod's main menu, go down to select "WAD Manager".

    Install the following WADs from the WAD folder (this list of WADs is unique to how you answered the Wizard's questions).

    Be careful not to install any additional wads that may have been previously saved in this folder (they may be safe, but I cannot say for sure).

    Hold + for 2 seconds to select all the WADs in the folder. Then Press A twice to install them all.
    If any files fail to install properly, they will remain marked for installation, so just retry installing those files.


    Your unique list of wads to install are as follows:

    * IOS11v16174(IOS60v6174[FS-ES-NP])
    * IOS20v16174(IOS60v6174[FS-ES-NP])
    * IOS30v16174(IOS60v6174[FS-ES-NP])
    * IOS50v14889(IOS50v4889[FS-ES-NP])
    * IOS60v16174(IOS60v6174[FS-ES-NP])
    * IOS70v16687(IOS70v6687[FS-ES-NP])
    * IOS80v6944[FS-ES-NP]
    * cIOS202[57]-v5
    * cIOS223[37-38]-v4
    * cIOS222[38]-v5
    * cIOS224[57]-v5
    * cIOS250[57]-v20
    * cIOS249[56]-v20
    * RVL-cmios-v4_WiiGator_GCBL_v0.2
    * Mii-Channel-NUS-v6
    * Photo-Channel-1.1-NUS-v3
    * Shopping-Channel-NUS-v20
    * Opera-Internet-Channel-NUS
    * Weather-Channel-NUS-v7
    * NEWS-Channel-NUS-v7
    * Wii-Speak-Channel-NUS
    * IOS56-64-v5662
    * IOS58-64-v6176
    * USBLoader(s)-ahbprot58-SD-USB-v3-IDCL
    This is a forwarder channel that will load the first file it finds from the following list:
    SD:/apps/usbloader/boot.dol
    USB:/apps/usbloader/boot.dol
    SD:/apps/usb-loader/boot.dol
    USB:/apps/usb-loader/boot.dol
    SD:/apps/usbloader_cfg/boot.dol
    USB:/apps/usbloader_cfg/boot.dol
    SD:/apps/WiiFlow/boot.dol
    USB:/apps/WiiFlow/boot.dol
    SD:/apps/usbloader_gx/boot.dol
    USB:/apps/usbloader_gx/boot.dol
    Note: IOS58 is required and it can launch files off an SD Card, a FAT32 Hard Drive
    and/or an NTFS Hard Drive. It also supports meta.xml arguments and is able to
    launch apps with direct hardware access.
    You should always have at least one forwarder channel installed on your Wii,
    that way, in the event of accidental update, you will be able to rehack your Wii without relying on a disc based exploit




    6) REINSTALL THE HOMEBREW CHANNEL (if applicable)
    ==============================================

    Earlier you should have checked what IOS is used by the Homebrew Channel (HBC). If the IOS used by your HBC is IOS58 and your HBC is not upside-down, you can skip this step.

    If the HBC is using an IOS other than IOS58 or your HBC is upside-down, you should reinstall the HBC.

    Launch the HackMii_Installer via the HBC.
    Use the Hackmii Installer to fix/re-install the HBC. Once you've successfully reinstalled the HBC, you can move onto the next step of the guide.

    If the HBC is failing to load the HackMii_Installer (just blackscreens), instead launch the Hackmii Installer using the method described in the First Step




    7) INSTALL CUSTOM WII MENU THEME USING MYMENUIFY (OPTIONAL)
    ========================================================

    WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL THEMES WITHOUT PROTECTION (BOOTMII, PRIILOADER AND NAND BACKUP)
    AND ONLY INSTALL THEMES FOR YOUR SPECIFIC SYSTEM MENU VERSION AND REGION!

    To install themes launch MyMenuify from the HBC.

    Navigate to SD:\MyMenuify_Themes and select the theme you would like to install
    that corresponds to your specific System Menu Version.

    If you ever decide to restore the original Menu Wii theme, you simply need
    to launch MyMenuify again and install the original .app file for your
    specific System Menu Version which was also saved to SD:\MyMenuify_Themes




    8) AFTER MODDING
    =============

    After you are done modding your Wii, you can optionally delete any unnecesarry files
    by using ModMii's "File Cleanup" Feature.

    At this point you're practically done.
    Now you should be downloading the latest homebrew applications and setting them up on
    your SD Card (or FAT32 USB Hard Drive) so they can be launched via the HBC.

    For playing your backups off a USB hard drive, run the USB-Loader Setup feature from ModMii's Main Menu

    For downloading applications, you should:
    * Check out ModMii's batch download pages as it has many popular apps available for download.
    * Download Homebrew Browser via ModMii to get many popular apps, but this is an online only Wii application (http://www.completesoftmodguide.tk/how-to-use/hbb)
    * For those without internet on their Wii, check out this list of Homebrew applications (wiibrew.org/wiki/List_of_all_homebrew).
    Another great resource is webrewwii.blogspot.com

    After getting whatever apps you want, you should get a boot.dol file and possibly a icon.png and meta.xml.
    For HBC to read your SD/USB correctly, your card must be structured SD:/apps/application name/boot.dol
    If you have a *.dol not named boot.dol, rename it boot.dol, otherwise it will not be recognized by the HBC.
    (optional: the icon.png and meta.xml should be saved in the same place as the boot.dol)

    You have the drive plugged in to the lower USB port?

    Tried another drive/memory stick, just to be sure?

    Maybe the USB port is toast?
