Download the modpack for the region of your wii, or the region you wish your wii to be when your done. Be sure to download to right one.

Verify Checksums -very important

On your PC, navigate to your sd card
Run sd:\md5summer.exe (this is run on your computer, not the wii)
Click "Verify Sums", Select "ModPack.md5"
All check sums should verify without error (very important)
Click "Verify Sums" again, Verify CIOS-PACK.md5, IOS Update.md5, and any others you have
All Checksums should verify without issue. Errors = Bad News, so try again



After that is done, now comes that most important step in this whole process :

Installing the Wads :
If a wad fails to install, try to install that wad again. If the wad still fails, press B to go back to the main menu, select reload ios, reload ios236, then try to install the wad that is giving you trouble again.

Start HBC, press [HOME], Launch Bootmii
Multi-Mod Manager Starts (via cboot2)
Never Uninstall IOS, or SM you will brick your wii

Select "WAD Manager" - Press A
Press (1) to "Install all Wads" - Press A
25 wads should install without error
"Press any button to continue"
Be sure all 25 wads install, very important

*Mac users may get an error of 25 wads installing and 25 wads failing. There are only 25 wads in the modpack. This issue is caused by the Mac creating extra files and is not an issue.*

Do not proceed with error, 25 wads must install
Never Uninstall IOS, or SM you will brick your wii

Select the folder "System Menu 4.1" -press A
Press (1) to "Install all Wads" - Press A
3 wads should install without error
"Press any button to continue"
Be sure all 3 wads install, very important

This installs a version patched SM, which I recommend. If this bothers you, don't do it.
WARNING: This is a version patched System Menu, running on a version patched cios60. NEVER replace cios60-v54321 with ios60-6174. Doing so will brick your wii if you update from Nintendo. Never update from Nintendo, don't MUCK up cios60-v54321. You have been warned.
Press B to go back a folder
