The steps in this guide are no longer needed.

Offline NUS Downloads
Use this section only if you have no WiFi on your Wii.

Quick usage guide, in case you haven't used NUS Downloader before:
Through the database, navigate to IOS -> IOS 36 -> v3351. After that, Click "Start NUS Download".
Once you downloaded the IOS, go to the folder where you extracted the NUS downloader and you will see a new folder called titles. In this folder will be another folder:
Open this folder and you will find a .wad file in it (if not, you did something wrong above).
Copy this wad file to the root of the SD card. (aka: not in any folder).
Now follow the guide below.
1. Downloading the IOS236 Installer
Download the IOS236 Installer and extract the IOS236 folder in the zip file to the apps folder on the SD card.

2. Launch the Homebrew Channel and Run the IOS236 Installer.
3. Wait a little while and a message will appear, press 1 to continue.
4. Choose where the installer can find IOS36.
5. Press A to start the installation and let it install (won't take long).
6. You will be asked if you want to play pirated games. Even if you are planning on doing this, still choose not to do step 2.
