    yes, the only way it can be usefull, is if you can boot into preloader or recovery menu...

    but it is still usefull to install, because apps made with MINI, can have far better performance than a normal wii app

    I have the Wad Manager application, but I don't know what you mean with a cIOS. If you could help me with this, it would be great!

    Peace

    EDIT: I've installed Super Smash Bros (PAL) via the Wad Manager. I have the channel in my menu, but when I press 'Start Game', I get sent back to the menu. What do I do now?

    Thanks in advance!

    I can't get PAL games to work on my NTSC wii without black and white and weird video output =[

    The games load up fine, and I can play the games in the mode they are in but they flicker and if I use force NTSC the screen just goes green. So far I've tried it on
    Mario Party 8
    Little King's story

    My Wii is a 4.0U and I'm using Gamma 0.3 and NeoGamma, plus Gecko.

    I'd really like color for the different region back-ups so if anyone could help me it'd be the greatest!!

    What is savemefrii?

    Other than bootmii and preloader, are there any other form of brick protection for the wii?

    Er, i guess this is the right place to ask this.

    So, it's my first time in the Wii scene, and i've tried reading guides etc, but there seem to be so many of them for different things.

    Now what i want to know is: how do i play backup wii games on my wii. I want the most simple way, as i only want to be able to do that, nothing else , just plainly beeing able to play a backup (burned) wii game on my Wii.

    I read you can run the games directly through the Disc Channel, or install another channel that runs backup discs?

    I don't know what info you need from me, but i'm using a day 1 PAL Wii, with the 4.0 firmwire (SD Card support thingy)

    What do i need to do know?

    Also,will i be limited to Pal games only, or will the Wii be Region free?

    Ofc, i want the game brick proof if needed.

    Also if i understand correctly, no twilighthack is needed for any of this is it?

    Loading through disc channel isnt reigon free but using backuploader gamma will let you force reigons so youll be able to play ntsc games too games wouldnt need brick protection but if youre going to also use homebrew get bootmii and preloader .
    Instructions for you:

    Ultimate Wii Soft-Mod Guide
    (previously 4.0 virgin guide)

    Revised steps (On behalf of Comex the creator of bannerbomb and dvdx ios downgrader)

    Disclaimer Read First
    As with any files used on Wii that alter the machine in any way, this runs the (small)risk of bricking (making the Wii useless) if you don't follow the guide 100% correctly, whilst this has never happend to anyone using my guides yet, it could possibly happen, Yafaze is in no way responsible for misuse of the guide and files. Thanks

    BACKUP YOUR SD CARD BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE
    DELETE EVERYTHING ON YOUR SD CARD OR THIS WILL NEVER WORK
    ONLY THE FILES IN THE 2 ZIPS SHOULD BE ON THE SD CARD!!!
    WILL NOT WORK ON LU64+ SERIAL NUMBERED Wii's

    What you need:

    WiFi (Important)

    "DOWNLOAD1" http://bannerbomb.qoid.us/ (Grab the newest aad1f_vxxx.zip and extract the private folder to the root of the SD Card)

    "DOWNLOAD2" http://www.yafaze.com/wii/files/4.0softmod.rar

    bootmii.org download the hackmii installer and install homebrew channel and bootmii first.

    Instructions:

    Put the contents of both zips on your SD Card as it is in the zip, just drag all to SD Card.

    Go to Data Management then choose Channels followed by SD

    Choose "Yes" to load boot.dol

    LoadMii will then load.

    Press "A" on the WiiMote.

    Go down to DowngraderIOS35.dol and run it by pressing "A" on the WiiMote.
    Choose downgrade IOS35 and then let it go, then choose exit (ignore the patchmii and dvdx)

    You'll be back in LoadMii now.

    Go down and run Wad Manager 1.4 by pressing "A" on WiiMote.

    Just select normal settings (don't change IOS)

    Install IOS35.wad.

    Exit Wad Manager 1.4 by pressing "HOME"

    You'll be back in LoadMii.

    Run Wad Manager again, Select IOS35 when it asked what IOS to use.

    Install the CIOSv7.wad.

    Press "Home" to exit.

    Then Run Wad Manager again.

    Tell it to use IOS249.

    Install IOS36.wad, BUL3g.wad


    You will now restart Wii to find that Backuplauncher and Homebrew Channel are installed and working.


    Should be all hacked now and ready to grab the new version of CIOS (v13b atm) from yafaze.com.


    Further Steps

    WARNING!
    Do not install Preloader before installing IOS60.wad. This will create a (fixable) semi-brick. If you want to use Preloader, install it after IOS60.

    To enable playing wad installed games from the 4.0 SD menu:
    - Install IOS60.wad using Wad Manager (from either HBC or the same way you booted it during guide) http://www.yafaze.com/wii/files/IOS60.rar

    To enable the use of USB Loader and to fix the 002 error on most backup discs:
    - Install CIOSv13b Using HBC http://www.yafaze.com/wii/files/ciosrev13binstaller.rar

    To downgrade your IOS files to Trucha Bugged versions for Preloader and other homebrew applications:
    - Run IOSdowngrader using HBC http://www.teknoconsolas.tv/wanin/IOS-Downgrader_v1.zip (This will not change your System Menu version.)

    THANKS:

    Nintendo for the actual console. (please do buy games if you really really like em)
    Comex: for bannerbomb and the dvdx ios35 downgrader.
    Hackmii: for all there insightful info's and the HBC
    and last but definitely not least Waninkoko, if it were not for all of your apps guys, we'd be nowhere.

    USB Loader is what? seems to be needed for alot of games?

    Also, what does WAD installed games mean?

    Backuploader gamma.. is the same as GECKO OS? I read that it's used to make the Wii region free.

    I'll keep this short.

    I've got a 3.2 modded (wiikey) running an older version of HBC and I'd like to be able to play the newer games.

    I'd prefer to stay away from cIOSs, but I'd like to be able to keep my system Trucha vulnerable so I can run fake-signed wads.


    I've tried to read up, but there's quite a bit info. Please correct me if I'm on the wrong track.

    1) Upgrade HBC and install bootmii into boot2
    2) Backup NAND
    3) When running a new game for the first time use Gecko OS to install missing IOS files.

    Will this keep me on System Menu 3.2 and keep my Trucha vulnerable IOSs in tact? If I've already updated through Gecko OS can I then play games through the disc channel without fear of update? If not, what's the appropriate way to block unwanted updates without resorting to cIOS or unsupported hacks like Starfall.

    Thanks.

    - Run IOSdowngrader using HBC http://www.teknoconsolas.tv/wanin/IOS-Downgrader_v1.zip (You'll still be on 4.0 but all will be trucha patched)

    How do i install these? I can't do anything at the HBC.

    I guess i have to acess the WAD Manager for all 3 of the files? But how do i do that through the HBC? :S

    Ok, so I havent paid much attention in all of the forums as I should have, I guess I am getting overwhelmed with the constant USB loaders. My question is can I install CIOS 222 even though I already have a 4.0u waninoko's update, cios rev 13b, and my usb loaders currently use ios 249..I dont want to overwrite and mess anything up because I got my setup working mostly the way I like it, discs in back up channel, etc...

    but I want to be able to use the CIOS 222 comptability...

    advice, help is appreciated in advance. thanks.

    Why are there so many different cIOS?

    How many cIOS are there and how many ios does the wii have? and what part uses each one? that would be cool to know.

    Also, does bannerbomb works on any firmware?
