    Alright, i have searched and searched but honestly i feel like i have been away from the scene waay to long so i just want to make sure im not missing anything!

    I purchased wii fit and wii resort and first tried to play resort but i noticed the disc loader (native) shows a picture saying that it will update my wii. I obviously dont want to do this as i dont know if my wii will brick!

    i dont have any kind of backups of my wii or starfall..(yes that was the last time i was on here).. i think there was another safe thing like pre loader too, but i dont have either.

    if i remeber correctly i have

    - 3.2 u
    - 0.3 gamma loader w/ a channel to load backups*
    - not sure the version of homebrew im sure i can just click on it to get the newest update
    - i think it was my current 3.2 that i got from here and it was "safe" so i assume it was altered.. dont know if that matters
    - i might have dvdx which last time i was on here caused all sorts of problems!

    if im leaving anything out i will be more than happy to fill you in!

    ps. i dont have usb loader or what ever that was/is and i ONLY have 0.3 gamma, i dont have 0.1 i think it was called:P

    so basically i want to safely upgrade to the newest wii system menu or at least one that wii resort wont still want to update with* and if possible make a backup of my wii which i here is possible now:D:D:D

    sorry for being the 100000th person to ask this but to get it all in one place for my specific needs would be greatly appreciated!

    - links to guide would be okay if you could point out the key parts i have to follow [​IMG]

    Sorry for the long post!

    Final version (v3):

    1) Load Bannerbomb => Load Hackmii Installer.
    2) Follow instructions on screen => Install HBC & DVDX & BootMii (If possible both Boot2 and IOS)
    3) ... profit!

    Preloader and cIOS249 of Waninkoko install:
    1) Install Preloader 0.29
    2) Launch HBC, run TBR, downgrade IOS15, patch IOS36, Restor IOS15.
    3) Install cIOS249 of Waninkoko, using IOS36.
    4) ... profit!

    Installing system menu 4.1 and Preloader re install:
    1) Run WAD Manager
    2) Install IOSs: 16 + 60 + 61 WADs
    3) Install System Menu 4.1 WAD
    4) Install Preloader 0.29
    5) ... profit!

    Softmod (You need cIOS249 of Waninkoko installed. (read above.):
    1) Just have a reloader/rebooter with hooks. (Neogamma is the best I guess..)
    2) Load it trough a Custom channel / HBC.
    3) ... Profit!

    Here is a TBR guide eventually:

    Using DVDX to watch DVD's get a Mplayer app.
    Load Roms from a DVD using a Emulator that supports it.

    3.2 should be updated.

    Grab a Nintendo update and follow the guide in my sig below to get your Wii hacked and up to the latest and best apps.

    Once you're done, you can get USB Loader GX or NeoGamma (in the guide) and launch with alt.dol.

    P.S. I wouldn't use v3 of HackMii installer as it's got some issues restoring NANDs. When you go to the BootMii site, click "copy link location" and paste it somewhere.. where the link says Beta3.. change it to beta2 to get the older version that actually works. Then just hang out until a new version is released that works properly. =)

    if you want then you can just do a system update from settings through your console.

    then install beta2 of hackmii as mentioned, make sure you choose to install bootmii as boot2 and install the hbc and dvdx.

    once thats done make a backup of your nand through bootmii.

    install trucha bug restorer to get trucha bug so that you can install the cIOS38rev14.

    then use dop-ios to patch ios60 and finally install preloader.

    make another nand backup if all went well [​IMG]

    I just done a second console for my brother the other day. I updated to 4.1 using the Nintendo system update, then proceeded to softmod it using the instructions above . [​IMG]

    Also - my console was on 3.2U with twilight hack / 0.3 gamma / backup loader channel and I upgraded to 4.1 just fine, then I proceeded with the cIOS 38 Rev14 install and usbloader etc....

    Don't forget to install BootMii as Boot2 if you can, and take a Nand backup (0.2Beta of BootMii that is) .

    yes. its downgrading thats risky. some of the things you installed may still be there after but just follow the order as if you where doing a clean wii and it'll be fine [​IMG]

    once youve done that you can then look at the extras you may want like neogamma7 for disc loading, usbloadergx for hdd loading, wadmanager 1.5 for adding challes and others wads. and anyother things you want,
