    4.3 problems. Please help

    Hi, im *points to username* im pretty much a lurker that registered to be able to download stuff and search things for help with my wii. Some problems have come and now i need more help.. but the guides dont really help me that much either! And yes i searched.. sorry if i didnt find something but you did. Anyway heres the story.

    about last year or so i heard about modding my wii (after failing to mod my ps2) so i modded my wii (followed a precise guide) and enjoyed the pleasure of my modded wii (Watching Shin Chan on my wii was terrific!) A few problems came with games like Red steel 2, monster hunter tri, and other things but i googled and searched here a bit and found help for them. Anyway i got the new spiderman the day it came out, you know that awesome new one? shattered dimensions? yea i got it then the day after i accidently stepped on it.. and it cracked.. how could i be so careless? i have no idea. So i was pissed you see, but i had already backed it up (learning from past mistakes) and i put it on my flash drive a few days later (had SCHOOL to deal with) And just this morning i started playing it with my lil bro, we grabbed popcorn, laughed at the funny jokes, and had fun honestly. I left for school while he played. Came back from school later on and turned on my wii, went to USB Loader GX (what i use for my games mostly) and was about to play spiderman when i thought of playing Persona 3 FES(PS2 game)... i couldn't resist so i turned off my wii and played. Later on i was tired of playing and let my lil bro play spiderman, he turned on the wii and later told me USB Loader GX was NOT working, i was like "what?" and he said "the wii updated" and i was like .
    So i immediately got to work, checked all my backup loaders? Nothing they didnt work. I still had Homebrew Channel, and all the stuff i installed on my wii (i did not install bootmii or preloader or whatever.. i never bothered ) So i immediately started searching here and found guides, i tried to follow those guides but i found some for "virgin" Wiis, which i did not have, some that were supposed to work but i do NOT have an SD card i have an SDHC and some that were plain confusing and(or) didnt work well.
    So i posted a thread.

    Sorry about the wall of text. Heres a summary of everything.

    - Has SDHC card
    - has SSBB but only SDHC card
    - Still has all his homebrew
    - No Bootmii (?) Homebrew channel doesnt load it up.
    - Updated just today.
    - 4.3 Wii now
    - 2 wii remotes, 1 gamecube controller, a flash drive i can use,some nunchucks, classic controller, and i think thats it. (supplies).. i think.
    - Has searched and can't find anything to help him (sorry if im wrong)
    - wants to play spiderman.. Badly
    - Cannot buy any materials tell me what i need and i have to see whether i have it ._.
    - no portable hard drives or whatever
    - WAD Manager isnt working

    There ya go.. please help, i'll try to keep coming back to the thread. If i dont fall asleep first of course...

    All you need to do is follow the 4.3 Softmod Guide in my signature. You will have to come up with a 2G or less SD card, Indiana Jones: Original or SSBB game and a ball bat to beat your brother.

    Sorry in the things i've searched thats one of them, and i cant come up with an SD card, like i said in my opening statement, i just cant buy anything, i also have SSBB and only an SDHC card.

    Dont have a Ball bat either xD

    Also, i couldnt really understand the guide since i dont havea Virgin 4.3 wii.. it still has my homebrew launcher.. although your method would probably work if i had the materials

    You can try the SDHC if you want but it will most likely fail on you. You can get a 2G Sandisk for $10 or maybe you could borrow one just long enough to complete the softmod. There is no other way.

    you could jump in at chapter 2 of the guide as you already have the hbc. but to run the hackmii installer again to install bootmii is more than recommended.
    really no sd card around? old digital camera or navigation system (back up everything you find on the card)

    good luck

    <--suggestions helped? press Thanks

    I do have a digital camera but its not a 1 gb sd card or anything, and a navigation system? i have a GPS but thats my moms. she'd kill me if i messed with it.

    EDIT: Checked my camera its an XD Picture card lol Isnt there anyway i could use a flash drive? or an SDHC? i tried SDHC for the smash hack thing, didnt work, infact i'd never been able to copy my stages to my SDHC Card.. now i see why.

    Then your gonna have to go buy an SD card, 2gb sandisk prefereably, or borrow one, there is NO other choice.
