    Is your SD card plugged with the BootMii files when you do that?

    So I have followed the instructions to the letter. When I get to the "proper brick protection:Part 2 of 2" part I cant the switch to boot into it when you need to hold down the power on and reset button. Far as I can tell and see, its on the SD card.

    So far the apps work and I have preloader.

    Hi
    I was trying to follow this guide to make my 4.3E wii region free so I can play a newly purchased US game.
    I am stuck at step 5 regarding Priiloader.
    I copied the hacks_hash ini file from GitHub and placed it inside the apps/priiloader folder on the SD card, but after installing priiloader and launching it by holding Power and Reset, I get an error when trying to enter the "System Menu Hacks" section.
    The error reads something like:

    "Syntax error : expected ´version´ before ´n´ @ line 130"
    and then shortly after that, underneath it adds:
    "Can´t find fat :apps/priiloader/hacks_hash.ini
    Can't find hacks_hash.ini on NAND"

    Any clues?

    Thanks in advance!

    You don't need to make the Wii region free, just use a bootloader.

    Hmm alright... Can you explain that to me like I was 5?
    Or ... maybe just like I was completely new to the forum and wii modding...
    My understanding was that you needed to hack the wii to install some tools to make it region free (or... maybe just the regio of the game), before you could play a game intended for a different market?

    I suggest you use ModMii to do all the work for you. It will download everything needed and generate a guide for you to follow. The link can be found in my signature below.

    No need to overthink it, just follow the instructions and you'll come out ok. Towards the end you'll make selection in ??Preloader?? or something like that where you can select how the Wii operates including skipping the health screen and treating all games loaded as region free.

    Alright, I’ll give that a shot.
    I did find a youtube guide somewhere that used modMii, but while downloading everything it had an error on 1 of 52 items and so I couldn’t complete it... I will give it another shot.
