    When IOS58 was released it was the first official ios to support usb2.0 speeds. The community was very excited to see how it would improve cIOSs when used as a base, but ultimately it led to nothing. Base 57 (not 56) is the best in terms speed and compatability. As I said, all you should need is what ModMii installs to slot 249. The other slots like 250 or 251 (from the other guide) are there "just in case" , but honestly you'll probably never need them.

    The 64 in ios filenames... not sure why that's there, it's just how their names by default and I left it unchanged in ModMii.

    You are correct about installing a patched ios60 to those slots, it will protect from upgrade/downgrade bricks in certain scenarios. If u are only ever using ModMii to upgrade/downgrade then you won't need it, but it doesn't hurt. You never know when someone's little brother decides they want to hack the wii to be even better and just brick it because they don't know any better.

    Can you access bootmii from priiloader or the hbc? If so, your sd card is set up properly and the issue is something else.

    Post a Syscheck too just so we can confirm it's installed as boot2.

    Still need to run through the full installation with ModMii, but here's how things are looking at the moment (having "successfully" installed bootmii as boot2 with Hackmii):
    sysCheck.csv

    Oh, and yeah, I can access BootMii from Priiloader and the HBC.

    Hi, I’m interested in modding a Wii, I read a bit and learned that ModMii is what I would need to do mod in 2019.

    I’m basically looking to be able to play Wii, GameCube with burned cds/on usb, snes games and probably n64 games.

    I read that 4.3 version don’t read DVD.

    Will ModMii be able to guide to do all this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello. :)

    Congratulations on choosing to Mod your Wii.:yay:

    As you researched correctly,ModMii is the easiest,fastest and safest way to get all needed Things on your Wii.And also correct it is the easiest way when your Wii is on System Menu Version 4.3,

    If you installed ModMii on your PC,the FIRST option "W" is the guide for you to get you step by step to the final results.:)
    The only thing you need is the MAC Adress of your Wii and an SD Card (2-4 GB for normal Applications or 16-64 GB for using Gamecube Games and Emulators.)
    An USB HDD recommended for the Wii games.

    Power on your Wii console and press the A Button on the Wii Remote to reach the Wii main menu. Use the Wii Remote to select the "Wii" button.

    wiimenu.

    Select "Wii Settings" to access the "Wii System Settings" menu.

    wiisettingsmenu.

    Using the arrow on the right side of the screen, scroll to page two and select "Internet."

    wii_settings_arrow.

    Select "Console Information."
    The Wii Console's MAC address will be shown at the top of the screen.

    Please read the ModMii Guide careful and take your time to make the needed steps to get a successfully modded Wii.

    Good Luck.:)


    Yes,there are many other ways to get a final result:

    - Letterbomb and HackMii Installer
    - Pimp My Wii
    - Game exploit(s)
    ........

    It is your free choice.:)

    Thanks for the answer!

    Just to be sure, You recommend me to use a USB HDD because flash drives have better chance to stop working (like with wiiU) or because a flash drive can cause a problem?

    Hi, I have another question/problem.

    I was able to mod my Wii using ModMii without problem and install USB loader gx, nintendont gba emulator.

    Now I would like to add a forwarder for usbloader gx and/or nintendont (I read in https://gbatemp.net/threads/nintendont.349258/ that it would be better to add a forwarder for usbloader gx since it will also work with nintendont)

    My problem is When I try to install a forwarder for either USBLoaderGX or nintendont, I get a exception “ dsi occurred “

    Picture of the error:
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1kUgrZGdhpc1yhsw9O1X8Z33IzNxB5HY3

    Am I missing something to be able to install the forwarder or its a wad problem?

    Hello!
    I have two questions... literally now I've installed the Homebrew Channel on a new vanilla 2006 Wii.

    1.- I've installed a WAD to the Wii Menu... I've transfered THAT Channel to the SD Menu... but attempting to load it from SD Menu won't work. How can I fix it? Am I missing some cIOS?

    2.- Why is Homebrew Channel running on IOS61? I'm pretty sure that on My Wii, it runs on IOS58. Is this a problem?

    Install IOS58 then reinstall the hbc. Or use modmii's hackmii solutions wizard

    @Moufou make sure your wad manager is running off of a CIOS, like 236 or 249

    It's for consoles with 64 MB of "expansion" memory (ie not counting the gamecube's which is integrated in the processor) - developer ones have twice as much as Nintendo has been doing for a while :)

    "4.3" is a Wii Menu version and it has nothing to do with the ability to run non-original discs (which is determined by your optical drive's chipset) or, for that matter, the ability to run non-original discs directly from the Wii Menu if you do indeed have (or replace yourself) a compatible drive (priiloader patches to run the Wii Menu and launched discs on IOS249 exist for most versions)

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    They don't run off the SD but rather are autocopied back to the console - that counts as installation, so if the title is unsigned you must be running the Wii Menu on a trucha-enabled IOS (note that, as of today in practice but not in theory, having a trucha-enabled IOS80 is incompatible with RiiConnect24 since their patcher doesn't allow you to also add trucha/identify/nand/ etc patches)

    What? I'm using NTFS for my Wii USB (more like a SD-to-USB adapter with a 32GB SD card but yea) and it works just fine.

    SD-to-USB adapter with an SD card is NOT a flash drive. The compatibility will depend more on the adaptor itself.
    And NTFS is not the best for homebrew, most will not recognise it, Nintendont doesn't

    @tswntk Oh sorry, but anyways I used to use a 16GB USB and that worked. Also for Nintendon't I use a separate 8GB USB.

    Hello there I find an old wii I got a couple years ago( I wasn't the first owner) and now I decided to softmod it to kill some time with games :). I was researching tutorials and reading about softmod but a lot of tutorials are from years back. My wii is currently running system version 3.1e so my main question is can i update system from nintendo and then softmod it?
    Also I could use some tips and tricks :)
    Thank you in advance

    Use ModMii. You could do an official Nintendo update, but if your wii was originally Korean and someone else region changed it, an official update could lead to a 003 brick. It's safer to just update and softmod at the same time using ModMii (updating via ModMii will protect against 003 bricks)

    Please help!
    I tried modwii followed instructions, formated sd fat and fat32 even downloaded sd card formatter, put everything on sd(2g) and when I go into message boards there is no letter. I searched days before and after but nothing

    You're sure you typed in your Mac address correctly?

    You can try letterbomb, it's pretty much the same a wilbrand so if be surprised if you get different results.

    If you want you can replace the wilbrand step with str2hax, Google for it.

    Edit; I thought you were on 3.1? How are you trying to use wilbrand or letterbomb? That is for 4.3 only. At 3.1 I think you want to use banner bomb v1.

    Hello there,
    On the following days i'll go back at my parents house to grab my Wii since i really introduce my Gf to motion controls thing, and she actually loves nintendo stuff :D
    Well I can remember that i hacked my Wii back at 2008-9 , and that i fiddled with some ios in 2013 or something for some games i couldn't play.
    So my guess is that i'm pretty much outdated right now.
    What should i do? check the latest ios and load them up? or with some way restore the wii to its official state and redo the process?
    Thanks
