    Im working on a idiot proof guide for all my internet friends with Wii's!

    I have only tested this on my own Wii and will not be responsible for any damage done. The following steps have been repeatedly done on my own Wii without any problems!

    This is NOT for LU64+, but with some modifications (feel free to cut in the text and post modifications) should work!

    Things like not downgrading etc, but I don't have such a Wii and thus not able to test anything!

    Thanks goes to everyone that took a candle!


    Internet connection needed: YES, we are in 2009 HELLO WORLD!!!


    This tutorial will guide you STEP-by-STEP into installing 4.0 with truncha patched IOS'es onto your Wii.

    This will NOT work for LU64+ Wii's, I sadly do not have such a Wii and can NOT test anything!
    For more info on LU64+ Wii's please scout the forums at:

    http://softmii.org/
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showforum=108

    I know for a fact that with some modifications in my guide it can be applied to LU64+ Wii's, but not until I have one myself!
    Input from others is always welcome ofcourse!


    Here is a quick summary of terms used:

    "slutty" A Wii with already truncha patched IOS'es.
    "virgin" A Wii without any trunch patched IOS'es.
    HBC The Homebrew Channel.
    Wii Options The little Wii bubble in the bottom left corner.
    Home The home button on your Wii-mote, between - and + ...


    And to be VERY clear, I make a few assumptions:

    A) You RTFM! (Read the Fucking Manual)
    B) You RTFS! (Read the Fucking Screen)



    First copy the contents of "SD" folder to a the root of a (formatted) SD card.
    For Preloader you need a hacks.ini file in the root of your SD card.
    The latest Preloader's hacks for you region are here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Preloader/hacks
    Just copy and paste the hacks and save it to "hacks.ini" on your SD card ... ofcourse the 4.0 hacks for your region!
    I have made two files, you can just copy and rename.
    Put the SD card in your Wii.


    On a "slutty" Wii: (Skip this if your Wii has no truncha patched IOS'es!)


    Goto Wii Options > Data Management > Channels > SD
    Install HBC.
    Install BootMii (as boot2 if possible AND as IOS).
    Exit installer.

    If you DO NOT have a BootMii/boot2 install AND no GameCube controller:
    !!!I have not refined a retard proof method for converting NAND images from other tools yet.
    !!!All NAND dumpers I tested sofar do not dump usable images for use in BootMii's RestoreMii.
    !!!And due to a bug in the BootMii/IOS it does not (currently beta2) allow you to use the power/reset/eject buttons.
    !!!My advice is to get a GameCube controller before you continue and make a NAND backup with BootMii!

    If you DO NOT have a BootMii/boot2 install, but a BootMii/IOS install AND a GameCube controller:
    Press the home button and start BootMii.
    Select the 4th option and then the first.
    Follow the instructions on screen to backup your NAND!
    Start HBC in the main menu of BootMii.

    If you have a BootMii/boot2 install, you will need to use power to switch choices and reset to select:
    Turn your Wii off and on, it will show BootMii.
    Select the 4th option and then the first.
    Follow the instructions on screen to backup your NAND!
    Start HBC in the main menu of BootMii.

    Start HBC (or should be already started).
    Run "NANDClean".
    Press A 10 times, please look at the screen and only press A when the program asks for it!

    Run "AnyTitle Deleter".
    Goto "00000001 - System Titles" and remove all IOS >200.
    Press home to leave "AnyTitle Deleter".

    Start "AnyRegionChanger".
    !!!If you have NO working BootMii/boot2 install the following step COULD BRICK your Wii!!!
    !!!This is because IF Preloader was to be installed first, "AnyRegionChanger" would simply remove it!!!
    !!!But if you RTFS everything should be fine, the settings showed are your current settings!!!
    Double check if the settings are correct (should be by default).
    Goto "Install System Menu 3.2" and press A and select yes.
    (THIS MAY TAKE A WHILE)
    After installing System Menu 3.2 (atleast on a 4.0 Wii) the warning appears on the top of your screen, tripple check your settings and if they are correct ignore the warning.
    Select "Reboot to System Menu" when its done and your system should be at 3.2 now.

    Start the first option in BootMii (System Menu channel ... Wii icon).
    Goto Wii Options > Wii Settings > Wii System Update
    Your Wii should restart and is now a "virgin" at 4.0!


    On a "virgin" Wii:

    Goto Wii Options > Wii Settings > Check the top right corner if you are at 4.0.
    If your version is not 4.0 goto Wii System Update and let it update your Wii to 4.0.
    Go back to System Menu, either via the home button or by going back manually.

    Wii Options > Data Management > Channels > SD
    Install HBC.
    Install DVDX.
    Install BootMii (as Boot2 if possible AND as IOS).
    Exit installer.

    If you already made a backup in the "slutty" steps above you can skip the following NAND backup steps:
    If you DO NOT have a BootMii/boot2 install AND no GameCube controller:
    !!!I have not refined a retard proof method for converting NAND images from other tools yet.
    !!!All NAND dumpers I tested sofar do not dump usable images for use in BootMii's RestoreMii.
    !!!And due to a bug in the BootMii/IOS it does not (currently beta2) allow you to use the power/reset/eject buttons.
    !!!My advice is to get a GameCube controller before you continue and make a NAND backup with BootMii!

    If you DO NOT have a BootMii/boot2 install, but a BootMii/IOS install AND a GameCube controller:
    Press the home button and start BootMii.
    Select the 4th option and then the first.
    Follow the instructions on screen to backup your NAND!
    Start HBC in the main menu of BootMii.

    If you have a BootMii/boot2 install, you will need to use power to switch choices and reset to select:
    Turn your Wii off and on, it will show BootMii.
    Select the 4th option and then the first.
    Follow the instructions on screen to backup your NAND!
    Start HBC in the main menu of BootMii.

    Put the SD card in your PC/cardreader.
    On the SD card rename the "bootmii" folder to "bootmii-orig".
    Copy boot.dol from the cBoot2 folder to the root of your SD card.
    Put the SD card in your Wii.

    Start HBC (or should be already started).
    Press the home button and pick "Reload".
    Start cBoot2 Installer it will run and then exit.
    Press the home button (while in HBC).
    Start BootMii and it will start cBoot2, which will start WAD Manager).
    Install cIOS249_rev9.wad.
    Press the home button twice after installing.

    Start HBC.
    Start "cIOS38_rev13b-Installer", leave IOS at IOS249 and press alot of A to install ... RTFS!
    Start "IOS Downgrader".
    Press A and wait a while for it to finish.
    When its done press any button, Wii will be restarted to System Menu.

    Start HBC.
    Start "IOS60-61_Shop_Mii_Installer", press alot of A (RTFS) to let it do its business and exit.
    Start "Preloader".
    Press 1 twice to get past the warning screen, it will install and exit to Preloader.
    Goto "Systemmenu Hacks" and select the following hacks:
    - Replace healthwarning with backmenu.
    - No health check.
    - Skip disc channel update check.
    NOTE: The region free hacks do not work for all titles, some just don't work with them turned on and SoftChip/NeoGamma should do this correctly.
    Select save settings and press A, press B after the settings are saved.
    Goto "Settings".
    Set autoboot to "Systemmenu".
    Set return to "Systemmenu".
    Set "Ignore standby setting" on.
    Select save settings and press A, press B after the settings are saved.
    Select "Homebrew Channel" and press A to start it.

    Put SD in PC.
    On the SD card rename the "bootmii" folder to "bootmii-cBoot2" and "bootmii-orig" to "bootmii".
    Rename "boot.dol" to "boot.dol-cBoot2".
    Open up the file "bootmii.ini" in the "bootmii" folder with WordPad (as Notepad doesn't show correct line endings).
    Change "#AUTOBOOT=SYSMENU" to "AUTOBOOT=SYSMENU", remove the "#" this is called uncommenting.
    Put SD in Wii.


    Your Wii is now at 4.0 and running with truncha patched IOS'es, congratulations!


    Now its time to install some WAD's!
    First press the home button and pick "Reload".
    Start "Wad-Manager_v1.4".
    Press A, leave IOS at IOS249, press A, press A.
    Install the following WAD's:
    NeoGamma R4-NGBL.wad
    SoftChipR99.wad
    USB Loader GX-UNEO_Forwarder.wad
    Install the following to get a "WAD Manager" channel.
    WAD-Manager_v1.4.wad
    Press home when done to get back to HBC.

    Looks like a good guide, but you didn't need to put it in a code box like that. It makes it a little bit annoying, for me at least, to read the guide effectively.

    Ahh, ok. That is a lot more viewable.

    Although I'd suggest you specify it's to a more easily viewed version next to the link. Just something that shows "link" is a bit confusing.

    Edit:

    Ahh, good. Perfect. Good job.

    I failed at adding stuff for GameCube :-(

    Let me dive into cMIOS versions and brew something up.


    =====
    To be confirmed:

    To make this work for LU64+ Wii's, get the LU64 fix and install it instead of cIOS249_rev9.
    Leave the "AnyRegionChanger" and "IOS Downgrader" steps out.

    Is the patched IOS16 needed?
    =====


    I'm not 100% sure if IOS60-61_Shop_Mii_Installer, Preloader and AnyTitle Deleter work on LU64+ Wii's ... they need IOS36 right?

    But I can test IOS36 dependancy as soon as my nephew is done >

    I knew you'd fix it as soon as you were told/asked. Thanks.

    I didn't insult you, there was no need for the other persons comments, assumption is the mother of all fuck-ups.

    Click the better readable link [​IMG]

    If I take it out of the codebox the structure will be borked as I used a step/level style.

    If you have a slutty wii and you did the slutty steps lol... do you still have to do the virgin wii part here?:

    "Wii Options > Data Management > Channels > SD
    Install HBC.
    Install DVDX.
    Install BootMii (as Boot2 if possible AND as IOS).
    Exit installer."

    I got an error doing the bootmii part and had to turn off the wii and my friend skipped this whole section all together.
    We are both getting errors now on other parts...my preloader wont install and my friend cannot install anything else i believe without errors or the wii freezing.

    Humz...

    Ofcourse you first make your Wii a "virgin" and then you continue with the "virgin" steps.


    What error did you get during BootMii step?

    You can ofcouse skip the BootMii part, but you will have no NAND backup that way.


    If Preloader won't install, what does it say? Does it tell you IOS36 is bugfixed? If thats the case you (both) probably have a LU64+ Wii? Or you didn't run the IOS Downgrader.


    /edit: Some friends report no problems after following my guide and able to play everything from SD/USB ... I have got some troubles with this Wii here atm not reading my DVD's ... but I guess thats because of wrong booktype settings as my own Wii eats everything.

    Also who cares about a "disc" medium :s HDD's ftw >

    Hi All,

    I am using this guide to softmod my wii. I have followed this guide no problems so far up until this part;

    Start HBC (or should be already started).
    Press the home button and pick "Reload".
    Start cBoot2 Installer it will run and then exit.
    Press the home button (while in HBC).
    Start BootMii and it will start cBoot2, which will start WAD Manager).
    Install cIOS249_rev9.wad.
    Press the home button twice after installing.

    I have started the cBoot2 installer and it did run and finish successfully however when I press the home button there is no option to start BootMii.

    I have tried to launch the WAD manager directly from HBC however I am a little unsure about what ISO to choose.

    What is the impact of not having BootMii, I have read that I wont be able to restore my NAND if something goes wrong which is obviously something I want.

    I have looked around and seen that HackMii allows you to install BootMii, should substitute using HackMii instead of the cBoot2 installer?

    I have an old old wii its an LU5 so no worries about the LU64+ crazy stuff.

    It's still not noobproof. I don't get the virgin and slutty idea.

    I just have a Wii at 4.0 PAL. I have the HBC channel installed already. So what does this make my Wii? Slutty or virgin?

    You also seem to refer to putting something on a SD card. But I don't see any link to download things?

    Yeah definitely check out the link, there is a link towards the bottom of the guide which refers to download locations for the pack. You have to put a fair bit of stuff on the SD and make a few modifications as the process goes on.

    As I said im stuck half way through so I can't say if it works 100% but given my status (Newbie) I don't think its 100% noob proof yet [​IMG]

    Getting there thou.
