I finally took the step into hacking, but after reading numerous tutorials on how to do it, to make sure I do it right, I'm completely lost due to excessive information or something. What I have: - EU-wii with Wiikey - Firmware 3.1 (never been upgraded) - Homebrew channel with the use of Bannerbomb What I want: - Acces to the shopping channel - Getting rid of #002 since I get black screens with all the newer games such as Madworld and Punch-Out - Possibly some sort of backup launcher which would work better than my modchip, so that if the games won't run using the normal method, I have a back-up loader - Be able to still use my freeloader From what I could gather Wii CIOS REV 13B should solve all my problems (tell me if I'm incorrect), so I downloaded it, but there was only a .dol in there. Should I rename that to boot.dol and put it in it's own map in the apps folder and then run it? On the youtube tutorial it looked all fancy with a Sonic logo, but when I put it on there it just shows the name I gave it with no author listed or whatsoever. Where am I going wrong? Do I need to take steps before I can actually install that? Something like WAD manager/installer etc? And then there was something about cIos 249, but I can't seem to find any good information on that. I know I'm a noob and all, but please help me. This is driving me nuts! Any help is VERY much appreciated. *EDIT: Oh crap, in my frustrations I opened up a topic, while there's a sticky made for noobs like me. I'll post it in there and a mod can delete this topic if you want.
