    Trying to find a site or information on loading custom system menu themes onto my Wii. Is there a forum or area dedicated to this endeavor?

    Basically just want to see what all is available. I managed to find a few here by searching, but I didn't care for them so much. I'm not asking for links to wads, just information on them.

    Thanks for any help [​IMG]

    WADder's wiki has everything you need:

    The Mym Repository has a large collection of themes in the .mym format
    MyMenu guide tells you how to extract your .app file and pack it into a .csm to install
    MyMenuify is the HBC app to install it.

    It's not as complicated as it sounds. Use brick protection. You can find more themes on a handful of other sites, so check Google if the ones on WADder don't tickle your fancy.

    Themes look nice, but packing them takes some knowhow and they are rather easy to botch. MyMenuify is probably responsible for many users' first system menu bricks, which require a clean .app install from MyMenuify, a system menu reinstall, or a Bootmii rollback. Take a look over the themes and make sure it's something you want to do.

    I've bricked about 30 times, but I would count my theme as one of my favorite customizations for my Wii.

    That's counting banner bricks from making wads, which only takes an extra minute to reverse, but not counting corruption errors, which you can intentionally get fifty times in a row if you want. System Menu bricks, probably only about 10. Thankfully no low-level bricks yet, although that usually occurs when uninstalling key IOSes and requires a truly epic amount of ignorance to do.
