Wii soft mod guide


Wii SoftMod Guide 3.1 - 4.1
Before we start into the process, you will need an SD card, at most 2gb capacity. This SD card will need to be formatted into FAT32 format.

Note: If you are on Wii System Firware 3.1, 3.3 or 3.4 You need to be connected to the Internet, unless you know the proper steps to upgrade using the Wii System WAD and Firware Updater 4.1 which I may include later.


First, download this file pack. Wii SoftMod 3.1 - 4.1 Pack
Download Readme file here. Wii SoftMod Readme

Step 1. Install The Homebrew Channel & BootMii

1. Put all the files from ‘Wii SoftMod 3.1 - 4.1.rar’ onto the root of the SD Card.
2. Insert the SD card into Wii.
3. Go to Wii Options, then go to Data Management > Channels > SD Card, then you will get a message saying "Load boot.elf?" , select 'Yes' and the Hackmii installer will run. (Goto the Channels first, then insert card or your console might freeze)
4. Install Bootmii as boot2 if you can, if not then install it as an IOS then go back and install the Homebrew Channel.

Step 2. Install Recommended CIOS

1. Go to Homebrew channel and run Trucha Bug Restorer, load IOS36, press 1, read the warnings then select 'downgrade IOS15', select to load IOS from SD card then let it do its job, keep an eye on what it is doing and make sure you select 'load from sd card' when it asks & don't get any errors.
2. Run Trucha Bug Restorer again, this time select to load IOS15 on first screen using dpad left/right, then select the IOS36 menu & install patched (select 'yes' on all 3 patches) IOS36 to slot 36, again using IOS from SD card.
3. Run Trucha Bug Restorer again, load IOS36 and this time select restore IOS15.
4. Run cIOS38 r14 installer, select IOS36 as the one it should use and then select wad install.
5. If your Homebrew Channel flips upside down then continue with the guide and when completed reinstall the homebrew channel.

Step 3. Update System Menu (Only for 3.1, 3.3 or 3.4 Firmware) Note: Internet Connection needed

1. Before you update to 4.1 make sure you have at least 250 blocks free or you will brick, install IOS60-patched first with Wad Manager using IOS249, then run Firmware Updater 4.1.

Step 4. The Final Step

1. Go to the Homebrew Channel and run Wad Manager 1.4 and load IOS249 (Default) and SD card.
2. Instal the following IOS.

* IOS38-64-v3610

* IOS50-64-v4889

* IOS53-64-v5149

* IOS55-64-v5149

* NeoGamma r8b17

Restart your console and your finished!

My wii is an import and I dont know where to purchase games for it


Actually, I believe that if you go to the same language of video game sites as your Wii is (and translate with Google Toolbar) you may be able to purchase games for your Wii that would work. Or, if you want to play specific region-protected games (e.g. English game on Japanese Wii), you can enable homebrew, which is running unauthorized applications on the Wii. One of these apps is one that can disable region-protection on your Wii. But be aware, because if you don't know what you're doing with homebrew, you could screw up your Wii.

Sonic Secret Rings Wii~Change from Japanese to ENGLISH?


Ok, i just figured this same problem out. When you get to the main screen press 2 then you should have 4 options to choose. Pick the bottom right one. After doing this you will have to pick the top selection then the 2nd one in the little box, this will switch the text language. Have a good day.

I upgraded my wii to 4.0 and installed the homebrew channel.Everything seemed to work great,so I tried to play guitar hero 3 the game shows up in disc channel but when you click start the screen goes black...


You might want to try a Loader instead of the Wii's disc channel. Are you playing original games or backups? You might have broke the Homebrew channel with the 4.0 upgrade. Check out this Wii homebrew set of tutorials to see if it'll help

Is japanese wii compatible with english wii fit?


No it does not. You can't play European games either for that matter, only Japanese games.
However there is a way around it, though it's a bit complicated and you'll need Zelda Twilight Princess (japanese version in your case) and an SD card.

Information can be found here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Twilight_Hack#Download (used to install the Wii Homebrew Channel)
and used in combination with this:
http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Channel/Help (Wii hombrew channel install files)
and finally this:
http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_apps/GeckoOS (homebrew application allowing you to play games from other regions)

If you need any help I'll walk you through it. This isn't endorsed by Nintendo whatsoever. No warranty on this at all. I have done it myself and there have been no adverse effects.

Japanese wii prob. 73412 again


It sounds like you need help from the Nintendo team since hardly anyone in the US has the Japanese or any other foreign version of the system and knows how to troubleshoot issues.
