    Hi everyone,

    My Wii is a NTSC-U launch console that's running firmware ver. 3.2U, I'm needing help getting it to do a few things:

    - Play all games via a USB loader (Monster Hunter Tri)
    - Access the shop channel
    - Update to the best firmware
    - Load channels from an SD card

    What do you guys suggest that I do to get these things to work?

    I've heard Pimp My Wii can install all the IOS's that are missing, but I've also heard that it can cause bricking.
    Also, should I install the Preloader in case I do end up bricking?

    I have the homebrew channel installed and Waninkoko's wad manager ver. 1.4., any other suggested apps?


    Thank you!

    hey man best thing you can do is get ModMii and use the usbloader gx stuff in it

    looks like you have cioscorp installed too i would remod with mod me to latest everything except menu unless you want sdhc support then you need ios 70 and system menu 449 for usa(4.0) first to allow sdhc supprt

    Yeah,, use ModMii, say ur wii is virgin, and choose SM 4.1 (the best option!). About USB loaders, use CFG Usbloader or Wiiflow cause you will get some problems if trying USB Loader GX (bugs).
    Just follow ModMii guide step by step and ull be happy [​IMG]

    Install priiloader after update to SM 4.1 else priiloader will be removed.
    As I told u before,,, follow ModMii generated guide. u will get time to priiloader installation.

    Okay, I've done all of the things you guys have told me to do.
    I appreciate all of your help very much.

    However Priiloader will not launch the Homebrew Channel; can this cause a problem if I were to accidentally brick my wii?

    It installs an outdated version of Priiloader. The reason it doesn't find HBC is because the Title ID of HBC changed since that release of Priiloader. Just find the latest version here and install it via Homebrew Channel from the Wii menu:

    Okay, I've updated to v0.4 which is appariently the latest version, but I'm still receiving the error that Homebrew Channel isn't installed.

    Also Monster Hunter Tri (PAL) still freezes after I press start. Should I follow the guide posted here: "http://gbatemp.net/t224194-wii-monster-hunter-tri-working-guide"?
    I just don't want to mess anything up i.e. not be able to install wads or have other games stop working.

    Again, thank you all for your help.

    The latest is not working (though title launch does - egurgle) because v0.5 was removed due to installation problems, that could lead to a brick. Hopefully they will get a 100% working version out.

    one thing to look into is nand memory backup... i did it to mine soo that if it bricks i can fix it again....but no nand....no backup.... might not be helpful but its worth knowing about if you (like me) have modded something and forgotten to backup nand and ended up with an expensive brick

    You don't have IOS58 installed. Install it WITHOUT patches before updating HBC to the latest. If you already have the latest (1.0.8), just install IOS58, then reinstall HBC. This will give you USB2.0 support for all non-loader homebrew. For those you'll need the latest cIOSes, and I highly recommend WiiFlow for USB loading.
