Ultimate Wii Soft-Mod Guide
(previously 4.0 virgin guide)

Revised steps (On behalf of Comex the creator of bannerbomb and dvdx ios downgrader)

Disclaimer Read First
As with any files used on Wii that alter the machine in any way, this runs the (small)risk of bricking (making the Wii useless) if you don't follow the guide 100% correctly, whilst this has never happend to anyone using my guides yet, it could possibly happen, Yafaze is in no way responsible for misuse of the guide and files. Thanks

BACKUP YOUR SD CARD BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE
DELETE EVERYTHING ON YOUR SD CARD OR THIS WILL NEVER WORK
ONLY THE FILES IN THE 2 ZIPS SHOULD BE ON THE SD CARD!!!



What you need:

WiFi (Important)

"DOWNLOAD1" http://bannerbomb.qoid.us/ (Grab the newest aad1f_vxxx.zip and extract the private folder to the root of the SD Card)

"DOWNLOAD2" http://www.yafaze.com/wii/files/4.0softmod.rar

Instructions:

Put the contents of both zips on your SD Card as it is in the zip, just drag all to SD Card.

Go to Data Management then choose Channels followed by SD

Choose "Yes" to load boot.dol

LoadMii will then load.

Press "A" on the WiiMote.

Go down to DowngraderIOS35.dol and run it by pressing "A" on the WiiMote.
Choose downgrade IOS35 and then let it go, then choose exit (ignore the patchmii and dvdx)

You'll be back in LoadMii now.

Go down and run Wad Manager 1.4 by pressing "A" on WiiMote.

Just select normal settings (don't change IOS)

Install IOS35.wad.

Exit Wad Manager 1.4 by pressing "HOME"

You'll be back in LoadMii.

Run Wad Manager again, Select IOS35 when it asked what IOS to use.

Install the CIOSv7.wad.

Press "Home" to exit.

Then Run Wad Manager again.

Tell it to use IOS249.

Install IOS36.wad, BUL3g.wad & HBC.wad


You will now restart Wii to find that Backuplauncher and Homebrew Channel are installed and working.


Should be all hacked now and ready to grab the new versions of CIOS (v10 atm) from yafaze.com.


Further Steps

WARNING!
Do not install Preloader before installing IOS60.wad. This will create a (fixable) semi-brick. If you want to use Preloader, install it after IOS60.

- Install IOS60.wad using Wad Manager (from either HBC or the same way you booted it during guide) http://www.yafaze.com/wii/files/IOS60.rar
- Install CIOSv10 Using HBC http://www.yafaze.com/wii/files/ciosrev10installer.rar
- Run IOSdowngrader using HBC http://www.teknoconsolas.tv/wanin/IOS-Downgrader_v1.zip (You'll still be on 4.0 but all will be trucha patched)
- Install backup launcher channel Using HBC: Garb Wii_Backup_Launcher__Mario_and_Luigi_edition_002Fix.zip from TURDinc downloads.

You might also want to consider installing USB loader - guide here
