    Hello everyone,

    I am in the process of softmodding my wii and I have a few questions.

    First, just to give you an update of where I am at, I am going to start the Backup Launcher section on this tutorial (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=168890), I have done everything else on that tutorial but that part. Also, my serial number says LU51xxxxx (just giving you this for a reference of how old this console is) (Apx 1 1/2 years old lol)

    So here are my questions.
    1. In the Backup Launcher section, I would like to use the backup launcher without the SD card, so I want to do steps b instead of a. So in step 2b) you download the 2 files, however in the second bullet for 2b) it says Copy the file Backup Launcher-WBKL-2.wad into the wad folder on your SD card. Where could I find a copy of this file? Or am I suppose to use the file in the first link of 2b instead?

    2. My wii menu is version 3.1U. I would really like to get the console updated a bit lol I was looking at this tutorial (http://webrewwii.blogspot.com/2009/04/system-menu-40-installation.html), however it only says it is working on 3.2U, 3.3U, 3.4U (USA/NTSC). Any recommendations?

    Thank you very much, this site has been very helpful [​IMG]

    The flat lands.
    Make sure he uses dop-ios to install a ios60 with sig has(trucha).
    2. Make a folder in the root sd:\ and make a folder called wad

    Awesome thanks for the info. With the WAD Manager 1.5. It asks which IOS version to use. HBC says I have IOS36 v12.22 however, default it gives me IOS249, and I think when I got done with the guide at Patching IOS36 we restored to 15, so which one should I use? I have followed this guide to a t, so that is exactly what I have done up to this backup point (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=168890)

    Also, I do have a folder in the root of my sd card called wad with the r7 version file in there.

    Thanks again for your help,

    The flat lands.
    So, did you install a cios, that's what wad manager uses. Ios249 is a custom ios.

    Ok so I installed waninkoko's updater and downloaded the latest updates. Everything went smoothly except for the last one.

    Here is what it says:

    Otherwise everything else works.

    Thanks,

    thats what i thought.

    get NUS Downloader

    Check "pack -> wad" on the bottom first
    [​IMG]

    and on the top where it says "database" [​IMG] click &


    navigate to system, system menu, choose v449 [4.1u] and click start NUS Download.

    get the .wad out of the new folder created where NUS is and install with wad manager.

    Awesome it installed and Wii settings says 4.1U now and I didnt have to do the trucha bug restorer again. However I did notice you select yes for Nand Permissions. I selected No for that when following the youtube video. What does that actually do?

    1. When I press Power and Reset at the same time, my Preloader doesnt work anymore. (Update: I reinstalled the preloader and it works now with those 2 buttons, however I still cannot use the hacks.ini file. I have placed it in the root and made sure I am use the NTSC version)
    2. Am I allowed to go online with the Wii, or will you be banned?
    3. When using the Wad Manager, do I use IOS60 or do I use IOS249 still?

    Thank you very much for helping! [​IMG]

    1] make sure you are not using a sdhc sd card
    2] you can go online, no bans unless you use cheats online.
    3] use ios249, its your custom ios.
