    I should have clarified in my original post, I have an older drive from around 2008. Too lazy to look up the drive right now.

    All posters stating the red Wii won't load backups are right on.

    What is this thread supposed to be anyway? Is it like a review, or did you not realize we know modchips would work?

    Yep, kind of a review. More like a log. There seems to be lack of info for systems with 4.3U and the Drivekey 2. Everyone seems to have issues with updating firmware and modchips. I just want to share some info on what works, so people will be informed if they want to move to 4.3U. I personally needed to do the upgrade to get the Netflix channel. The Netflix disc had a remedial interface and the channel has the full release. And yes, I realize you know modchips work.

    Actually you did not need to do it. You could update the Shopping Channel manually, then downloaded Netflix. 4.2 and 4.3 have had 0 benefits, so don't start telling people to do it. I have seen two bricks caused by that stupid update in the past week.

    What did you cry to a moderator to have my last comment removed? This is indeed a cool story you've replied with in this thread and certainly scolding me adds serious value, not to mention I've been modding systems since you were in diapers, son. I'm not telling anyone what to do. If you don't like the info I'm publishing, don't read it. The last time I watched the news, the entire world was fighting for free speech, so if you don't like it, don't read it.

    I have not said a thing about your post to a moderator. You might want to read this again:
    so don't start telling people to do it.
    I think you need glasses old man.
    Anyway, why do you assume you know my age, and what "story" have I added.

    We have worked hard on this site trying to get rid of the myth that it is necessary to update your System Menu to play games or channels. I was simply suggesting that you should remember not to say anything that suggests updating past 4.1 is good.

    I'd be careful what you say and how you say it, "old timer" or not jacobp. We as moderators do take a very proactive approach to oversight/moderating. The reason given for your deleted post was "non-contributory." This is hand-in-hand with site rules, to wit: "h) Posts that do not pose a question should be contributory to the thread or site. Posts with no meaningful content will be deemed to be an effort to increase post count and will be deleted. Repeated posts of this nature will result in disciplinary action."

    He did not say a word, but I'm saying a word to you right now: "b) No posts, threads, E-mails, or PMs intended to be antagonistic, insulting, or intolerant of other members or staff are allowed. Members are not to stalk, abuse, or intimidate other members. The actions described are also termed spamming, flaming, and trolling and violate site rules. Communications intended to coerce or deceive others into site violations or illegal activity will not be tolerated." <--- this applies to YOU.

    Like the rules or what an individual offers up as an opinion? Nah, you don't have to; following the former while disagreeing respectfully in the latter case --- those are expected and required of you.

    Heh. No worries. I was just giving you some sarcasm back. But seriously, I'm just giving some info, just in case people have updated their system to 4.3U, it's not the end of the world. I would not recommend updating this to anyone.

    And Nightstah, calm down bro. No one is posing a threat on anyone.

    I was the one who struck your post, and without prompting form anyone I might add. Note that the words "cool," "story," and "bro," when placed in succession and followed by a fullstop, without including any substance or relevance will immediately invoke removal if I come across them. I don't care if it's a moderator's post: That ridiculous phrase has no place here.

    If you have something legitimate to contribute, go nuts. We encourage that. We love that. But non-contributory posts will be removed.

    Oh, and mentioning that others calm down is decent advice you should follow yourself.

    Disrespect is what I was describing. Finger-pointing to a user about actions taken by a mod --- and ascribing it to him (who had nothing to do with it --- zero involvement) is either a bit paranoid or childish. I do appreciate the mea culpa in your conciliatory post, however. This is another reason why we're proactive --- to keep folks from running off the cliff in front of them
