    I bought a WII which was hacked by using Twilight hack.

    It was downgraded to Ver. 3.2E (EUR)
    In the root I found IOS36-64-v1042.wad.
    I would like to install "usb loader gx" or something similar to run the games from external USB HDD.

    What has to be upgraded or updated?

    Which softmode has to be done?

    Which disadvantage is to stay on Ver. 3.2E?

    Would it be better to change the WII to 4.1 and use bannerbomb ... (I found a german page with a good tutorial).

    Thanks for helping me ... [​IMG]

    Hi folks ... thanks but

    My first problem is:

    - can't install new homebrew channel ver. 1.0.1 because one of my IOS seems to be not correct. The requirement is ver. 1.0.8 !!
    - I heared that ver.4.3 is too high to have the homebrew advantages. I would prefer a upgrade at least to 4.1
    - I downloaded NUSD and I'm able to save the IOS wads to the SD but which has too be installed
    I know already that I have to use the WAD manager (already downloaded)
    - hackmii installer is already 0.8 but the wrong IOS seems to be on the wii. So you see I have problem caused to the wrong IOS

    Theme MODMII: I found ver. 3.5 ! Does this version update my wii from 3.2E also?

    How do I know which IOS I had to install?

    - to upgrade my homebrew

    What had to be done to upgrade at least to Ver. 4.1?

    Thanks for the help, but I'm not that crack on the WII!!
    Please remind it by given me advises to install this or that... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Use ModMii: http://gbatemp.net/t207126-modmii-for-windows
    Run ModMii, type I agree, and chose Wizard mode,,, say ur wii is virgin, and choose desired SM 4.1. then follow guide step by step.
    I recomend u to load MMM, choose WAD Manager and install IOS 58. Do this before install new HBC + Bootmii.
    Then follow generated guide [​IMG]
    this will fix ur problem
    enjoy it

    You need to install IOS58 WITHOUT PATCHES. I would suggest Tantric's IOS58 Installer. Normally I don't much care for single-purpose apps like that, but it's simple, easy to use, and pretty much foolproof. Run that to install IOS58 then update HBC. Then you can install your cIOSes (Wanin 20b and Hermes 5.1 are the latest). Also, WiiFlow is pretty much the best USB loader out there, I switched over from USBLoader GX and I've never looked back.

    thanks qwertymodo

    hint was fine [​IMG]

    my wii is now with homebrew 1.0.8 [​IMG]

    I was asked to install bootmii as IOS and did it hope it was ok [​IMG]

    At the moment I#m trying to get MODMII ready for installing, but unfortunately ... you had to keep an eye on feezing ....

    Twilight hack is already installed would it be a problem with modmii??

    It's good to find someone with more information

    The discussion is great

    Meanwhile the modmii did the most but:

    modmii\32e\WAD\cIOS223[37-38]-v4.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    modmii\32e\WAD\cIOS222[38]-v5.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    modmii\32e\WAD\cIOS224[57]-v5.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    modmii\32e\WAD\cIOS202[57]-v5.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    modmii\32e\WAD\cIOS250[38]-v20.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    modmii\32e\WAD\cIOS249[56]-v20.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    modmii\32e\WAD\RVL-cmios-v4_WiiGator_GCBL_v0.2.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    Results: 56 files processed, 49 good files, 0 bad files.

    I tried already to the download again but it fails.
    Netframework 3.5 SP1 is installed. I got some errors regrading framework, but as I could see ... most of the installition is done.

    Can I download the seperatly with NUSD?

    Thx

    FYI, NUS servers are currently DOWN. So any apps that download files from nintendo will not work at the moment (including windows apps like ModMii, NUS Downloader and wii apps like wifi downloads/installations using dop-mii, mmm, IOS58 Installer, cios installers, etc.).

    Hopefully nintendo's servers get up and running again soon...

    How can the rest be established?

    Only by doing it again or separatly?

    Downloading isn't possible any more ... [​IMG]

    While Server is down is there nowhere a zip file with these IOS downloadable?? [​IMG]

    Do I have the chance from the modmii installation? It's a wonderful possibility!! [​IMG]

    Thx

    nintendo servers are down... they are usually never down... so they should be back up soon.

    If you wait until tomorrow, hopefully NUS/ModMii will be working properly again.

    If you don't need the sd card support for wiiware and vc game then stay right where you are and upgrade cios's, install ios 58, install latest hbc, make nand backup, upgrade boot.dols and voilà !

    Hi [​IMG]

    Thanks, but what does it mean:
    "don't need SD support for wiiware and vc games" [​IMG]

    ios 58 is already installed and the HBC is 1.0.8.

    I did a nand backup with 6 factory errors ...

    What does happen when I try to use the rest of the installation?

    Is the server still down?

    In the meanwhile I downloaded Hermes v4 seperatly where do I have to copy the dol file ...
    (to apps)? [​IMG]

    Since 3 days I' not able to do the download of:

    modmii\32e\WAD\cIOS223[37-38]-v4.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    modmii\32e\WAD\cIOS222[38]-v5.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    modmii\32e\WAD\cIOS224[57]-v5.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    modmii\32e\WAD\cIOS202[57]-v5.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    modmii\32e\WAD\cIOS250[38]-v20.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    modmii\32e\WAD\cIOS249[56]-v20.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    modmii\32e\WAD\RVL-cmios-v4_WiiGator_GCBL_v0.2.wad: Error (Error opening file.)
    Results: 56 files processed, 49 good files, 0 bad files.

    Is the server still down? NUSD is downloading some IOS, but I can't find the files from above anywhere [​IMG]

    Thx in advance

    you can just use Dop-Mii Wiibrew Edition to install what ever System Menu you want w/o having to rehack your console [​IMG] i honestly dont understand why people use the term "rehack" when it's just that simple. Also Dop-Mii will let you know if you the required IOS to run the System Menu and will ask you if you would like to install it. The only thing you will have to do is reinstall Priiloader if you got it and even then it's just for caution cause Dop-Mii Wiibrew Edition will ask if you would like to preserve your Priiloader and then it will ask if you would Like to Restore Priiloader

    It's realy hard to understand the way how everthing works and you can trust me I would like to!! [​IMG]

    it just affects the system menu you can use a homebrew called PimpMyWii this will scan your current IOS and let you know of any outdated and ask you to update them in batch [​IMG]
