    Remember the external disk must be in FAT32 format or the Wii won't read it.

    So, I haven't touched my softmodded Wii in about a decade, and I want to re-backup my nand and keys since I can't seem to find them. Unfortunately, I can't find my bootmii stuff either, so I can't launch bootmii. Is it safe to go through the letterbomb and hackmii process again, or is there a better way? I have the priiloader apparently. If I knew how to start over, I would. I have this channel called "NeoGamma" and I don't even know what it does.

    I'm running Ver. 4.3U

    EDIT: Nevermind. I just went through the steps in the OP and nothing weird happened. Everything went smoothly and my stuff is backed up. Got rid of some old apps I don't use too. Thank you for the guide!

    Hello everybody,
    I know I'm a little bit late but I'd like to have an advice/help if I understood correctly what I have to do.

    My goal is to play the games I OWN through a usb hdd because it's faster and easier than using the real copies. (My original saves are not deleted, right?)

    As I understood this is the procedure I have to do:
    -Install the Homebrew channel and Bootmii (easy part)
    -Create a NAND backup and store the nand.bin and keys.bin in a safe place in my computer.
    -Install Priiloader with region-free support so I can play NTSC games with my PAL wii (To install I copy the Priiloader folder to the root of the sd card and then open it through the homebrew channel on my wii)

    Now i'm a little bit lost on my next step: to install USBLoaderGX do I need to install a WAD manager (WiiModLite)?
    To create Wii channels for my games in the USB do I have to download a forwarder right? Which one? or does WiiModLite already do this?

    -Then I download WBFS manager 3.0 and the game Isos on my PC
    -I format my hdd and load the isos with WBFS
    -Plug it back to the wii: Done! (How do I create Wii channels of the games?

    Is the procedure correct? Can you help me with my confusion with the WAD manager, thanks :)

    What else do you recommend me to do or to install?

    THANK YOU!

    Hello.:)

    After your Explanations your next Step is install cIOSes:

    https://wii.guide/cios

    After this you can proceed to USBLoader install.:)

    !! Please do not use it !! Is has a known bug and is no longer recommended !!


    Please use the WiiBackupManager instead for the Game transfer.

    Thank you.:)

    Yes.:)
    You can also have the Game Covers and if available a Game description too.
    But you can download it later with the USBLoader GX too.

    Thank you.:)

    If your Wii's system menu version is 4.x (4.0, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3), it does support SDHC. Just note not all exploits support SDHC, Smash Stack is an example, I recommend Letterbomb, it's pretty quick and is very reliable.

    I'm using a 256GB SDXC card on 4.3U. As long as your system menu is above 4.0 and the card is formatted to FAT32 32k larger cards work just fine.

    Try going back a few days or resetting your Wii's time.
