    I was a big fan of the old SoftMii themes but now it appears that the new themes are MYM or CSM themes..

    I'm trying to figure the new age stuff out, but I'm stick..
    I think I need to get some kind of 000000XX.app from my Wii or online but I puzzled on how and why I need to go threw this headache.?

    I can not find a good step by step tutorial on how to use this MyMenuify app so I'm hopping to find help here....Again.

    I have a old SoftMii theme that I'm using its 00000072.appMadWorld "Mad World theme" for SM 4.0 can I use this to make my MK4.0.MYM to a MK4.0.CSM "Mortal Kombat theme"..?

    Any help is much appreciated.
    Thanks!

    What you need is the system menu wad for your wii. The reason for this headache was to make the files legal to distribute, although I also hate the .mym way.

    you could but things that aren't changed in the mk4.0.mym will stay with the mad world team. but if you extract the system menu 4.0 wad and take out the 00000001.app.

    then just open mymenu 1.3 (or 1.2 whatever you like the most, some themes work better with 1.3 others with 1.2) and select the app as source and the mym file as script file.

    then press create mymenu.

    this will create the csm file, although if you use 1.2 you have to give the extension name itself...

    not only the legal issues but also to make them region free as you can use them on pal and ntsc...

    I'll try and figure this NUS Down loader thing out..
    Any help with it would be appreciated!

    ----EDIT----

    I found my System Menu in NUS and downloaded it.
    Now I have this folder 0000000100000002v417 and some files in it but there's no 00000001.app?

    What a pain!!!!!
    When I get this 00000001.app I can use it with all and any MYM themes that I download right?

    Well, according to the link you posted, you need to rename 00000001.app to 00000072.app
    But the 00000072.app is already there and there is no 00000001.app
    And it states it has to be little under 7mb, so 6.520kb seems right.
    So its possibly that one
    (but to be sure, install preloader or bootmii as boot2 !)

    Ok, I renamed the 0000072 file to 0000072.app now MyMenu "PC program to make the CSM" can see it.

    I start MyMenu up and do this.
    I put the 0000072.app in Source..
    Next I put the 4.0 MK.mym in the MyM file.
    Then I hit Create MyMenu!

    I get a ASH Unpack Fail message....?

    Thanks.
    I do have Pre Loader v29 and BootMii beta2 installed to Boot2..[​IMG]

    1) Get a key.bin (google common-key.bin or makekeybin)
    2) Place it in the NUS downloader folder
    3) Download the system menu again, but check Decrypt contents
    4) It will make an 00000072.app itself

    Thanks all!! I got it working!
    What a pain, I thought for sure I would make my first brick!
    Here's what I had to do.

    1st. I used NUS Downloader to download System Menu 4.0 "in WAD format".
    that was my problem, I think.

    2nd. I used Wad Unpacker to unpack the Wad.
    You can download the System Menu unpacked but I kept getting errors when using the file.

    3rd. I took the 00000001.app and renamed it to 00000072.app.
    00000072.app is only for System Menu 4.0U = witch is my System Menu.

    4th. I loaded up MyMenu.

    5th. I loaded the 00000072.app as the source and the MK.MyM as the MyM file.

    6th. I hit create and got a blank file that I named MK.CSM.
    I finally had no Fatal errors making this file..

    7th. I put the MK.CSM in a folder I names SCM Themes on the root of the SD Card and I put the MyMenuify in my apps folder.

    8th. I loaded MyMenuify with HomeBrew Channel and selected my new theme and installed it.
    To my surprise it worked and my Wii is not bricked!

    I realy want to thank everyone that helped, you guys got me in the right direction.
    I could not have done it with out you guys!

    THANKS!!!!

    Thanks for this m8, have been stuck trying to do this as well.

    Just one thing, have you tried this method with the 36 frame MYM's?

    yeah, I got the 36Runfirst.mym working.. I bricked my Wii trying the Theme with out it.

    Here's how to use it, or at least how I got it to work.
    00000072.app works only for System Menu 4.0U.
    If you're System Menu is different you'll need a different .app....000000XX.app.

    1st. Take the 00000072.app and the 36RunFirst.mym and combine them using MyMenu.
    "It's the same process as making a CSM theme."

    2nd. Save the combined file and name it 00000072.
    "The new 00000072 is now ready for the MYM Theme."

    3rd. Use the newly made 00000072.app and the Theme.mym to make the .CSM.

    I hope this helps you Calisto.
    Good Luck.

    MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PRE-LOADER AND OR BOOTMII INSTALLED TO BOOT2!!!!!
    IT IS STILL REAL EASY TO BRICK THE WII USING THESE.

    Ohh,
    So I never needed to rename the 00000001.app to 00000072.app...?
    Are you sure I thought it had to be that number to match the 4.0U System Menu?
    lol, I'm probably wrong.

    Since you extracted it from your system menu its the right one
    renaming won't change the file [​IMG]
