Are you tired of the boring, plain white theme on your Wii Menu, and want a cool theme instead? This tutorial will help you get a new theme for your Wii Menu!
In the case of a brick, installing Priiloader is a must. Also, install BootMii (as Boot2 if you have an early Wii). You should be fine if you do this tutorial correctly though.
What you need
- A Wii
- An SD card with at least 128 MB of free space
- A computer with Windows on it (or using Mono or Wine on Linux/Mac)
- MyMenuify Mod
- ThemeMii Mod
- This GBAtemp post
Section I - Finding a Theme
- Peruse the GBAtemp post, finding a theme you want to install. Some have YouTube videos to show what the theme looks like, unfortunately some of them are unavailable.
- Once you found one you like, click the download link corresponding to your Wii Menu version. It is very important to pick the right one to avoid bricks.
- You probably will pick the download link that says 4.X, that means the theme will work on version 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 of the Wii Menu.
- Some themes have different links for different regions, so please pick the one corresponding to your Wii’s region.
- Once you downloaded the theme you want and double-checked you got the right one, open up ThemeMii Mod.
Section II - Building the Theme
- A dialog box will pop up telling you to only install themes if you have brick protection. If you installed Priiloader and/or BootMii (see the warning at the start of this guide), press OK.
- Go to
Download Base App> Version of the Wii Menu you have installed > Region of the Wii Menu you have installed.
- A dialog box will pop up asking you to enter in a value to create a key. Enter in what it says, it will create a key that will be used to decrypt the Wii Menu from Nintendo’s servers.
- A file selection box will ask you where to save the .app file (that is the Wii Menu file it downloaded). Save it to the directory where ThemeMii is in.
