Wii Soft Mod for System Menu 4.1 and below



I know that this is out dated but let me take you to the System Menu that I consumed before my Wii bricked after a power cut off! Let me do this, anyway it's my first post. ☺

Now for the scaring part...

DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE RISK THEN DO SOME RESEARCH AND GET INFORMED!

THIS GUIDE WILL WORK ON ANY REGION/SERIAL SYSTEM WITH 4.1 AND BELOW FIRMWARE - EXCEPT KOREAN!

THOSE THAT HAVE A LU64, LEH250 OR LAH113 AND ABOVE SHOULD NOT NOT DOWNGRADE ANY IOS OR FIRMWARE AFTER PERFROMING THIS GUIDE.

Now let's start!!!

THINGS YOU NEED:

WII SYSTEM: With 4.1 firmware or below (DO NOT UPGRADE).

SD/SDHC CARD: An EMPTY 1GB/2GB formated FAT32 SD Card (up to 32GB SDHC if you have 4.0/4.1 firmware). Do not use a Micro-SD card with Adapter (even if others claim they have used them).

WIFI:

DISCONNECT: any Game Cube controller, Game Cube Memory Card and USB Device from Wii.

==============================================================

SD CARD PREPARATION:

Download this SOFTMODPACK HERE.

Mirror Link HERE.

Extract the SOFTMOD PACK to your PC.

Now Extract the "EXTRACT TO SD CARD" file to your SD Card.

Due to copyright issues I am not including official Nintendo IOS files in the softmod pack. The steps below will show you how to download them using your PC.

Start NUS Downloader v1.2 (it is included in the SOFTMOD PACK). Make sure Microsoft .NET Framework has been installed on your PC.

Click on Generate Certs (if you haven't used this application before).

Tick the Box for -- Pack-> WAD





Now go to Database>IOS>IOS15>v257





Then select Start NUS Download.






Follow the above steps for the following IOS files...

Now go to Database>IOS>IOS15>v266

Then select Start NUS Download.

Now go to Database>IOS>IOS36>v3094

Then select Start NUS Download.

Now go to Database>IOS>IOS38>v3610

Then select Start NUS Download.

After you have finished downloading the above files you will see NUS has created 4 folders. Each folder will contain a WAD file you need to transfer to the root of the SD Card.

Transfer the following WAD files to the root of the SD Card...

IOS15-64-v257.wad
IOS15-64-v266.wad
IOS36-64-v3094.wad
IOS38-64-v3610.wad

WARNING: If you have to rename the WAD files to match the above then you are doing something wrong. You should not have to rename the WAD files.

Your SD Card should now look like the below image...







==============================================================


HBC 1.0.3 & BOOTMII INSTALL:

This section will install Homebrew Channel 1.0.3 to your Wii System.

DO NOT HAVE THE SD CARD INSERTED INTO THE WII SYSTEM AT THIS TIME!

Go to WII SETTINGS>DATA MANAGEMENT>CHANNELS>SD CARD TAB (make sure you go to CHANNEL not GAME DATA).

You will get a message saying "Nothing is inserted in the SD Card slot".

At this time insert the SD card into the Wii System.

You will get a message saying "Load Boot dol/elf?" Select YES.

This will start the Hackmii installer.

Press 1 to continue at the warning screen.

Select Continue again at the page that shows what can and can not be installed.

At the main menu go up to Install Homebrew Channel and Press A.

Follow the prompts to install HBC.

After it says success select continue again.

Now go down to Bootmii and Press A.

Try to install Bootmii as Boot2 first. If it will not let you install it as Boot2 then install it as an IOS.

After Bootmii installs make a backup of your NAND.

Follow the images below to backup your NAND (I recomend having 600MB or more free space on the SD card).













Bootmii as Boot2 will boot menu when Wii is turned on. Navigate using a Gamecube Controller or Power Reset.

Bootmii as IOS will boot from Homebrew Channel Home screen. Navigate using Game Cube Controller (if you do not have a Game Cube Controller then you will not be able to navigate the Bootmii menu to backup your NAND). If this is the case then skip backing up your NAND.

FOR MORE INFO ON HOMEBREW CHANNEL GO HERE.

FOR MORE INFO ON BOOTMII GO HERE.

Those that have previoulsy installed Bootmii or HBC and want to update to the latest versions only need to install over the older versions.

This is a warning for those that decide to install/update to the latest DVDx version. Due to the Title ID of DVDx being changed previous applications that use DVDx will need to be recompiled to look for the new Title ID of DVDx. Please do not ask questions about DVDx or apps that use it in this thread. This is just a courtesy warning to those that use it. If you have an issue with DVDx or an application that uses DVDx please start a new thread.

Those that have an Upside down Homebrew Channel can uninstall the HBC then reinstall it. If that doesn't fix it then run DOP-IOS and install IOS61 without sig/hash patch.

==============================================================

IT IS SAFE TO DOWNGRADE IOS15 ON ALL SYSTEMS! THOSE THAT HAVE A LU64, LEH250 OR LAH113 AND ABOVE SHOULD NOT DOWNGRADE ANY OTHER IOS OTHER THEN IOS15!

Press B to continue without IOS reload (ios at the top can be left as default)

EXTRA STEPS: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FOLLOW THESE STEPS BUT I HAVE ADDED THEM IN CASE YOU WANT TO.

4.0 SYSTEM MENU:

Those that have 3.4 and below firmware can follow this section to update to System Menu 4.0 (if you have 3.4 firmware or below and want to update to 4.1 firmware perform this step first before updating to 4.1 System Menu).

[ REQUISITES ]
150-250 free blocks.
Internet connection.

Start Homebrew Channel and run Firmware Updater 4.0 and follow the on-screen instructions.

4.1 SYSTEM MENU:

Those that have 4.0 firmware can follow this section to update to System Menu 4.1 (if you have 3.4 or below firmware then run the 4.0 Updater first before running this 4.1 Updater).

At spots it can seem like it has frozen. Do not restart or turn off Wii just let it do its work.

Game Cube Support:

WARNING: I DON'T KNOW IF cMIOS IS COMPATIBLE WITH LU64, LEH250 OR LAH113 AND ABOVE SYSTEMS. IF ANYONE KNOWS FOR SURE LET ME KNOW AND I WILL REMOVE THIS WARNING.

1) Launch the Homebrew Channel via the Wii channel menu. Select the cMIOS Installer in the Homebrew Channel list. This will start the installer. You need to press A to accept that you have read the disclaimer.

You have 2 options on how to install the cMIOS files (you do not need to do both options!)...

WAD Installation: Google RVL-mios-v8.wad and download it. Then place it in the root of the SD Card. Then chose WAD Instillation option.

Network Installation: At the instillation option screen press right 1 time on the D-pad of the Wiimote. This will download the files via WiFi.

After you have selected the option you want and installed the cMIOS your Wii should reboot to the Wii Channel menu.

Now you can launch the backup Game Cube games from the NeoGamma R6 backup launcher channel in the Wii channel menu.

I would suggest using DOP-IOS to install and patch newest version of the below IOS.

ALL SYSTEMS/SERIAL # CAN USE DOP-IOS. THOSE WITH LU64, LEH250 OR LAH113 AND ABOVE CAN USE THIS APPLICATION. DO NOT DOWNGRADE ANY IOS OR FIRMWARE. INSTALL & PATCH THE LATEST IOS REVISION AVAILABLE INSTEAD OF DOWNGRADING TO A LOWER REVISION. DOWNGRADING TO A LOWER REVISION MAY BRICK YOUR SYSTEM!
