Korean wiis, Japanese wiis, even those Exotic black and red wiis

Password = NOT-A-PIRATE

Softmoding can brick your wii, this is very very unlikely. Accept this fact or stop now.

Works with 4.3u/e/j/k

Compatible with hardmoded wiis and softmoded wiis. Softmoded wiis, just follow the guide, don't delete anything

Part 1- Launch Hackmii Installer

As of hackmii 0.8, ios58 will be install prior to hbc install for all wiis 4.2 and less.

Below you will find many methods for loading the hackmii installer. Bannerbomb is best and is supported on 3.0-4.2 wiis. Choose the method compatible with your wii.

Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed:

If you already have a softmod with HBC installed, you can update your softmod with this guide.

Note: 4.3 wiis can skip installation of ios58 and 61, and simply load Hackmii from the HBC.

You need a modchip installed on your wii

Download MMM-16.zip(http://126a1fc2.dyo.gs/) , extract the MMM-16.iso to your pc

Burn the MMM-16.iso, good and proper

Burn with ImgBurn(http://74b58f00.dyo.gs/) @ 1-4x, incremental -Verbatim dvd -r is best.

You won't be using this disk for long, so try what ever media you have before you buy new disks.

Download MMM-58-61_Hackmii_0.8_BB2.zip(http://www.mediafire.com/?73xcdc5m911tiqj), and extract to sd:\

Simplest method is to update to 3.0-4.2 via disk update:

Go to the store rent/buy a game and update your wii. Read this for info on system menu update versions found on disks - READ HERE (http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-guides-tutorials-only/24965-ios-games-use-run.html)

2.0-3.4 use the Twilight Hack:

Download MMM-elf-58-61-Hackmii_0.8-TP.zip(http://a1e04241.dyo.gs/)

and extract to sd:\

-Play The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, make a savegame

Put your SD card in your Wii and turn it on.

Go into Wii Options --> Data Management --> Save Data --> Wii.

Find your Zelda save, click on it, click "Erase", and click Yes.

Open the SD card and select the "Twilight Hack" save that corresponds to your game region. Note: Some people are having problems with the Wii not "seeing" the save file on the SD card. If you are experiencing this, try setting the archive bit for the data.bin file - in Windows this can be either be done from the file's properties dialog (right click on it in Windows Explorer and check the box) or from the command line using "attrib +a <path to data.bin>". More info at #wiihelp on Efnet.

Click copy and then yes. Now exit out of the menu.

Insert The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess game disc and run the game.

If you have the USA version of the game, load the "TwilightHack0" or "TwilightHack2" version of the game as appropriate (see above).

Otherwise, load the only "Twilight Hack" save game.

Once in the game, either walk backwards or talk to the man standing in front of you.

If you are using System Menu 3.4, you must immediately put the Twilight Hack to use. Turning off or running some other channel or game will have the System Menu delete the savegame again, and you'll have to start over. Also, 3.4 must also extract twilight-hack-v0.1-beta2.zip(http://8dc87b90.dyo.gs/) to sd:\ replace files when asked.

Part 2- Install The HomeBrew Channel and Bootmii

Read the Scam warning and press 1

It may take a minute or two for the "press 1" to appear- be patient

Install the HomeBrew Channel

Install Bootmii as Boot2(boot2 may not be available, IOS installs automatically)

Prepare the SD-card

If Step1 fails with error "no vulnerable ios", DO THIS (http://fbf91146.linkbucks.com/)

Part 3- Make A NAND Backup (NOT Optional, do this,)

Alternative to nand backup, if you can't make one now

If you are unable to make a nand backup ATM, you can skip it if your wii is online. You must run XYZZY from the HBC and extract your nand keys.

This does not work if the wii is not online.

Backup and format the sd card

Extact MMM-xyzzy_CB2.zip(http://ee58e97c.dyo.gs/) to sd:\

Load the HBC, press [HOME] launch bootmii

MMM will load, Select wadmanager

Press 1, -Press A -install all wads -1 wad will install without error -Press any key

Press 2 - Load the App Manager, Launch XYZZY

Let it do its magic, then save sd:\keys.txt to a very safe place

Be sure to make a bootmii nand backup ASAP

But having the keys is good enough in a pinch

The Keys are needed for nand reprogramming of a fully bricked wii

Load HBC, press -HOME-, launch Bootmii

Make a nand backup

Press Power, Power, Power, Reset, Reset (or use gc-controller)

Power = Right, Eject = Left, Reset = Select

Once the backup is complete, exit bootmii to HBC

Backup your Bootmii files to your PC

sd:\bootmii

sd:\nand.bin

sd:\key.bin

*DO NOT LOSE THESE FILES*

If you want to load bootmii again at a later date, copy the bootmii folder back to sd:\

Congratulations, you now have the Homebrew Channel and bootmii installed. You have made your nand backup and are ready to move on the chapter 2. If you purchased a game to run these exploits, you may now sell them if you wish.

Chapter 2- Hacking your wii

Read this Chapter 3 times, or more.

Format the sd-card!!! (not optional)

Yes, format the sd card, I mean it, backup everything to the pc and format it. Delete everything

Optional priiloader settings-

You can set you wii to boot the system menu, HomeBrew Channel, Priiloader, USBloader, and any other app you wish. Settings are found in priiloader, settings. Set the autoboot and return to what you like best.

Example: Set the autoboot and return to installed file, now your wii will autoboot to your USBloader - Excellent option for those with kids.

Chapter 3- The Final Step

Don't forget to do this

Format your sd-card, one last time

Extract App Pack.zip (http://a8087489.dyo.gs/)

to sd:\ -

Boot your wii to the system menu. You will see the following channels installed.

CFG-USBloader- This is a forwarder, it load the usbloader from your sd card or HD.

Backup Dics Channel- This is an autobooting mod of Neogamma loader, it will autoboot discs. Press any button while loading to access the menu. It is a channel and does not use sd/hd

Backup HBC- You will see a channel with black water, labeled backup HBC. When you load it, HBC 1.03 is loaded. This is installed as a backup means to run homebrew should you ever need it. You should not use it, unless you need to. Don't uninstall this wad, title "MAUI". Keep it on your wii or save it onto your sd card. You can move it to the far far right of the channel menu or back it up to your pc. You never know, someday you may need it.

If you like you can move channels by holding B, then pressing A and dragging them where you wish. You can do this with the disc channel if you enabled the priiloader hack.

Now you have some useful apps on your sd-card, you are ready to play. Have fun. Included apps- Homebrew Browser, WiiMC, CFG-USBLoader, and SaveGame Manager GX. There are many many many more for you to try. All apps install to the sd-card, or optionally you can install them to your fat32 usb drive. Apps should be installed like this- sd:\apps\app name\boot.dol ,otherwise they don't work.

Loading Backups FAQ:

Cios- you have: These are what run all your backups. You have a few to choose from.

Hermes- cIOS202[57]-v5

Hermes- cIOS222[38]-v4, cIOS223[37-38]-v4, cIOS224[57]-v5.1

Wanikoko- cIOS247[base-37]-v21d2x6, cIOS248[base-56]v21d2x6, cIOS249[base-38]v21d2x6, cIOS250[base-57]v21d2x6

You have all the current cios needs, so if you have any issue and so and so says use this cios, you have it. You can set these on a per game basis in your loader.

CFG-USBLoader has been set to use cIOS248[base-56]v21d2x6, this should load just about everything for you. But if you have games that need other cios you can use those as well. You can set cios on a per-game basis in the loader if you wish to use others. Legacy app compatibility has been maintained with ios249[38]v21d2x6

Loading From Disc-

New wii dvd drives will not read backup discs, no mater what. Does my wii load dvds? If it is new, probably not. Discs suck anyway, usbloading is much better. Disks must be loaded from a disk loader, like the neogamma channel installed on your wii. They will not work from the disk channel, unless you installed darkcorp. GC backups can be loaded from the disc channel without issue, if your drive reads burned dvds. Be sure to burn your dvds good and prooper. Burn them with ImgBurn, slowly 1-4x, set the "Layer Break" to 2084960 for dual layer games, on verbatim dvd -r. Other discs may work, but these are considered the best.

Loading From USB-

Loading from USB is the best option, compatible with all wiis. It requires a compatible usb hd.Setup you HD for usbloading: You can use FAT32, NTFS, or WBFS file systems. FAT32 is recommended, so I think you should use FAT32, but you do what you like. I suggest you get a compatible HD and format to FAT32, then use Wii Backup Manager to copy your iso from your pc to your HD as wbfs files, it can also dl cover art for you. You should also be able to use the USB loader to copy your game from the wii to the HD.

1- Get a compatible usb HD

2- Format it to FAT32 with FAT32_GUI_Formatter.zip--(http://ad256223.dyo.gs/)

3-Copy games to the HD with your wii using the USBloader, or use WiiBackupManager.zip(http://3fe0c063.dyo.gs/) to copy game iso from your pc to your hd.
