    Combined your instructions with the new letter bomb hack and voila – homebrew and game bakcups.  Thanks – I had tried this in the past with issues due to the random nature of the different cios’s – your instructions made it much easier – altho  the whole process still took me almost 2 hours.  Ahh the magic of television time lapses.

      Thanks again

    finally got the nerve to try a TON project and started with this one. completed this project over the weekend, took me many hours, but got there in the end. kids have a wii version 4.3 so way more complicated than expected. however now that it’s do I feel like an IT genius !!!

    Thanks! Like Mknollman said, the new Letter Bomb hack makes it much easier (Google it) but you’ll still need the above TON video to learn how to get your game backups to run.
