    Hi,

    I recently been written on a tutorial to install/softmod Wii .
    During this i came upon a youtube video displaying an app: PimpMyWii and how it can 'perform this test and fix problems' .

    I noticed that PimpMyWii updated my d2x .. just like that. Making this part of tutorial obsolete or not?

    ""
    5. Play Newer Wii Games (install MMM and d2x)

    (part 1 - download MMM and d2x to SD card)

    A. Download and install ModMii v6.2.3 or higher on your PC from http://modmii.zzl.org/home.html - Press English Flag . Install ModMii into C:\ModMii\

    (install d2x)
    B. Open C:\ModMii\ModMii.exe (not ModMiiSkin!)
    C. From ModMii's Main Menu, enter "4", then "beta" then "7"
    D. Type "24956" then "25057" to select cIOS249[56]-d2x-v6-final and cIOS50[57]-d2x-v6-final (* next to selected file)
    E. Type "d" then "y"
    To exit ModMii after download sequence type "e"

    PS: We pick d2x files with 249 base 56, 250 base 57, as according to d2x's wiki thats the recommended configuation ( http://code.google.com/p/d2x-cios/wiki/How_To_Install )

    (install MMM)
    F. Re-open C:\ModMii\ModMii.exe (not ModMiiSkin!)
    G. From ModMii's Main Menu, enter "2", then "mmm" then "d" then "y"
    To exit ModMii after download sequence type "e"

    Unplug SD-card from Wii and put into Computer

    H. Open C:\ModMii\COPY_TO_SD\
    I. Put folder 'apps' and 'WAD' into sd:\
    J. Re-plug SD-card into Wii

    (part 2 - install d2x to Wii)

    A. Start Wii
    B. Open Homebrew Channel
    C. Load MMM (Multi Mod Manager)
    D. Press A
    E. Press downarrow to Wad Manager
    F. Press A
    G. Install ONLY the two d2x files by pressing A on each one
    H. Press Home on Wii Remote two times
    I. Done! :)

    "" ???

    . Im also wondering how powerful this PimpMyWii is? Can you use it directly after getting the Hombrew Channel , @ Letterbomb ... or no? :)

    Don't use PimpMyWii. It is a garbage apps. A lot of people have bricked their Wii because of this apps.

    I say whatever works works. Hacking wii is kind of a thing of the past (a glorious one in my opinion). Modmii has had tremendous work put into it and the method suggested works. So if you have a better one great.

    SysCheck is nothing like PimpMyWii, they are totally different apps (apples and oranges), SysCheck just read your IOS, cIOS, MIOS, boot0, System Menu status and give you a report.
