  2. Wii which can run Homebrew
  3. IOS36-64-v1042.wad *
  4. cIOS36_rev9-Installer.zip

( Instead of modding youw Wii with a Wii Mod-Chip - you can Unlock it wiht a software-mod tool)


Environment –

  1. Nintendo Wii v4.0U
  2. v4.0U via Waninkoko's Update
  3. Homebrew Channel v0.9
  4. Wabasi Zero (Modchip)
  5. Windows XP Computer
  6. SanDisk Titanium 8GB USB Keychain


Preparation –

To sum up, first you have to run the cIOS Installer on an offline or online connection. Second, run the USB Loader which will format your USB device and thus will prepare it. Third, as your USB drive is ready after formatting, you can add your legal backup collection to it.

You have two zip files; extract/unzip their contents in separate folders. There is a .dol file in each of the two folders, rename both the files to “boot.dol”. Remember to put the “IOS36-64-v1042.wad” file into the "cIOS36_rev9-Installer" folder if you are using an “offline” connection.

Now, you have to copy both the extracted folders to your SD card. Hold your Wii and insert the SD card into it. Switch on the Wii and next launch the Homebrew Channel.

Locate the cIOS36_rev9-Installer and launch it. Now, press the button “A” agreeing to the Disclaimer.

Next, select the installation mode as “Network Installation” or “WAD Installation” and wait a few minutes to get it installed.

After the installation is complete, just reset the Wii by pressing any key.

Usage –

Now, have your USB device plugged in and then launch the USB-Loader v1. If you get a message as shown in the above picture then it is likely that your USB device is not supported.

If you get a message which asks you to format your USB device in a new WBFS format, then everything is fine and your USB device is supported too.

Now, choose a partition which you want to format. To continue, press the button “A”.

Now, a list of games will be displayed to you together with the current size of free space and used space available. Now, choose an original game to dump it to your USB device. Insert it to your Wii and press the button “+”. If you want to use backups instead of original, then you must have a modchip installed in your Wii.

After you press “+” it will again prompt you whether you want to install the game or not.

Now wait a few seconds….

Now the installation of your game has been completed. To add more games, just repeat the above given steps and gear up to play your favorite games on it. The remaining GUI is self-explanatory.
