    Hello,

    If, some SD cards work badly with wii, that's why you have to try various SD cards to see the result.

    is there another full comprehensive guide to hacking the wii ?

    I am trying to play some backups off my usb drive and it isnt working for me.

    The drive works just fine with my other wii and the vwii so its not the drive.

    The games show up in usbloadergx but when i click on them the screen just goes blank and goes back to the homebrew channel.

    man i am not having fun with this - i thought this would be easy !

    I tried to do a backup of the wii as per the instructions but the only sd card that i had that worked with the exploit is too small.

    I tried to use a different sd card for the back up but when i try and run bootmii, the screen goes blank and my disk drive flashes a blue light.

    i am able to restart the wii so it isnt bricked but what do i do for a backup ?

    Hello,

    for the hard drive , a small list here ==>https://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/USB_Devices_Compatibility_List

    Your hard drive should work normally.

    Put your external hard drive in FAT 32, to put the Gamecube and Wii games on the same partition.

    I did hack the wii, but I did not load "bootmii" while I did it. Now I am long past the initial setup. Can I still load "bootmii" and or is that opportunity long past?

    I have no brick protection at all. What can I do to correct that? Can I load bootmii now and get on with life?

    Yes just follow the steps for BootMii, see if Boot2 will work on your setup, if not that's ok just follow the other steps and make your NAMD backup.

    If you want a fresh setup follow the ModMii guide and select your Wii as a new installation and it'll overwrite anything needed and get you back on track.

    Thanks. What about PriiLoader? Should I put that on as well or is it redundant? It is fine, the system is good.

    I haven't tried loading the bootmii yet over the installation I have, but I will this weekend. I then loaded 3 iOS versions per a youtube video. I loaded parts of IOS236 CIOS222 D2XCIOS

    I am doing it blind, that is, I don't understand what/why I am doing some things, but it worked. I haven't researched yet how this actually works. But I appreciate the word of pros, and threads like this help. I want to make one of these for my son on his birthday. I have another one that I want to do in a more "elegant" fashion.

    Hello,

    Internet videos are not the best, often not very clear.

    Use Modmii as you suggest ==> ca032769 , this will update your IOS and your CIOS.

    Yes, it is better to install Priiloader, for better protection of your wii ==>https://wii.guide/priiloader.html

    Thanks for the reply!

    The link for "ca032769" didn't work, but the one for the prililoader does.

    I do want brick protection. Can I do both without messing up what I have now?

    The wii set pretty much the way I want it, except I want to change the background color from white to black. Other than that, I'm pretty happy with the setup. My fear is that if I screw up installing the theme, then it will need to be reset, and I don't have a way to do that right now.

    So priiloader or bootmii or both? I am leaning toward bootmii first, then priiloader, then if I don't screw that up, finding a theme do change the background color to something other than stock.

    I am going to try and spend some time to figure out how to restore it back to factory too, just in case I want or need to.
