[UPDATED] Newer Super Mario Bros – NSMBWii Hack

Newerteam have been busy over the past 3 years, beavering away and modifying NSMBWii into virtually a brand new fully fledged game!

  • 128 all-new levels on a gigantic world map
  • Remixed and original graphics, themes and music
  • The return of a classic Power-Up
  • New and old bosses and enemies
  • Fun with 1 to 4 players, just like the original game

Looks great right, but the issue with mods like this are that you require not only the original disc, but you need Riivolution to play it…. but what if it doesnt work? What if your disc is damaged? What if you want to play it on WiiU? Riivolution doesnt currently support WiiU, so damysteryman over at GBAtemp has provided us a neat little solution!

Unnofficial Automatic ISO Builder Pack v1.011 for Newer SMBW
Pack built by damysteryman/TeamDARK

Thanks to Treeki for info on NSMBW dol patching and ISO building
Thanks to Wiimm for Batch file info and assistance
Credits also to Wiimm for WIT, included in this pack
Credits to Icarus of Paradox for ApplyPPF3, included in this pack
Also thanks to everybody who provided .dol versions I did not have

This will combine an ISO copy of New Super Mario Bros.
Wii and NewerTeam's Riivolution-style Newer package to build an
ISO version of Newer.

Should work with All EUR and USA versions, and JPN v1 version.
(Currently only tested with EURv2 at this time)

1. Extract contents of this .zip file to a new working directory.
Get your ISO of NSMBW, and copy it to the same directory as
this README file.
2. Copy the "NewerSMBW" folder from the package to the same
directory as this README (you can download Newer from if you have not done so already already)
3. Run Build_Newer.bat, follow its prompts (specify the base ISO's version,
and the output file format) and wait for it to build the Newer ISO.
4. Use/run the newly built ISO however way you would :P
5. Enjoy!

Generated Newer ISO has Header GameID of SMNx03, and tmd/ticket ID of KMNx
to keep savegame seperate from original game's one.


- Fixed typo in .bat causing Titlescreen logo not to be replaced on
non-EUR versions

- Renamed it from Patcher to Builder
- Added support for EUR, USA, and JAPv1
- No longer requires ISO to be an exact name
- Added ability to select output format from either iso or wbfs
- Changed generated ISO's GameID from SMNx02 to SMNx03 to avoid conflict with
another existing Custom NSMBW
- Fixed an error which would cause German and Dutch versions to break

- Initial release

There you have it, I have to say this mod is exceptionally fun to play, very well made, and the hammer suit is pure awesome!

You can also get help with your PS3 from 3absiso. Tutorial: How to Get Wii Backups Working on the Wii U By BobbyBlunt And NeoSabin

We had this one up earlier, but some drama caused by the mentally unstable writer d0rks0ul aka twat420 aka Tehruler, meant that it was destroyed, but the silly child didn’t realise, that nothing is truly destroyed, so here it is and sorry for the inconvenience, in future i wont little silly little children have access to posts :)


Read these instructions carefully, at least twice before proceeding. Never mix and match Wii and Wii U WAD files. The two are separate things. Failure to follow instructions or warnings may result in brick. Following this tutorial may result in voiding your system warranty. and its authors are NOT resposible for any damage or loss that may occur by following this tutorial.

Step #1: Follow the .Wad Manager Tutorial if you haven’t already done so. (If you’ve run it before and are having problems getting backups working after this tutorial, follow that tutorial again and start this one from the beginning.)

Step #2 (optional): Backup your Wii Mode NAND using our guide *LINK COMING SOON*

Step #3: Download D2X cIOS Installer 2.2 and (You should have a folder ‘d2x-v10-beta53-alt-vWii’ in the d2x cios installer v2.2 folder. So it should look something like this: /apps/d2x cIOS Installer 2.2/d2x-v10-beta53-alt-vWii). Also download the latest version of WiiFlow

Step #4: Extract the D2x cIOS 2.2 installer first. Move to the APPS folder on your SD card. Then extract and move the files to the D2X Installer folder in your \apps\ Extract the latest version of WiiFlow to your \apps\ folder too

Step #5: You need the following THREE files in the root of your SD card:

How to get them:

  • Download Bluedump 0.3 and extract the files to folder titled Bluedump 0.4a
  • Rename bluedump-alpha04.dol to boot.dol and place it in a folder titled Bluedump 0.4a in your /apps/ folder of your SD card (You should have /apps/Bluedump 0.4a/boot.dol)
  • Launch BlueDump via HBC. With the arrow on “00000001 – SYSTEM TITLES” Press the A Button. Using the D-PAD press DOWN until you are on the desired system title and then press the ’1? Button on your Wii Mote. Using the D-PAD change the bracket selection to “Save as WAD” and press the A button, press A Button again for “Save to SD”.
  • Go to the \BlueDump\WAD\ folder on your SD. Rename the 56, 57, 58 WADs according to the filenames: IOS56-64-v5918.wad, IOS57-64-v6175.wad, and IOS58-64-v6432.wad Move them to the ROOT of your SD card.

Step #6:Boot into Wii Mode, launch HBC, and from there launch d2x cios installer. Press A to get past the intro screen, and press A again when prompted about selecting IOS 236.

Step #7: You should now be at the INSTALLATION PROCESS screen. There should be an arrow under SETTINGS on “Select Cios”.

  • Using the D-PAD press RIGHT until you can see “d2x-v10-beta53-alt.vWii” in the “Select cIOS” brackets. Once that is selected, press DOWN on the DPAD, moving the arrow to “Select cIOS base”. Press RIGHT until “56? is in the brackets. (leave “Select cIOS slot” at “249?) With “d2x-v10-beta53-alt.vWii” under “Select cIOS” and “Select cIOS base” on “56? Press A.
  • Once it installs press A to continue. Now change the “Select cIOS base” to “57 slot 250 and Press A, then Press A again to continue.
  • Now finally change the “Select cIOS” base to “58 slot 251 and Press A then press B to quit once the installation successfully completes.

Step #8:Return to HBC, plug in your USB device to the Wii U’s back upper-most USB port, launch WiiFlow and enjoy playing Wii Backups on your Wii U!


That’s it! You should now be able to launch WiiFlow and load Wii Backups. (NOTE: as of the time of this writing USBLoader GX does not appear to work, future updates should fix this)
