    originally hacked using Twlight (2yrs+), updated to 4.3 (oops), but still have HB?

    Hi All,

    I'm a little confused as to where I'm at on my hacking...or what to do next...

    About 2yrs ago I did the Twilight hack and was able to run Homebrew and also play copies of games on disk. I haven't used the Wii in some time and when I first turned it on, wasn't paying attention, and updated from Nintendo to v3.4U. I thought i had the WiiConnect24 setting off and also had the hack installed (forgot name) to prevent updates...apparently not

    Anyway, I lost the ability to play copies of games but I still have access to Homebrew and was able to download and isntall some Homebrew apps as well recently.

    I'm assuming I'm still hacked but obviously lost some functionality.

    I want to know, which guide should I follow to just get the ability to run copies of my games on disk again but also now want to be able to play games off of an external 1TB drive.

    I'm just not sure where to start and I don't think I need to remod the whole thing from scratch since HB works....

    Thanks for the help.

    Follow the softmod any wii guide from the spoiler that says softmods with homebrew installed. This will get everything up to date for you. There is a link in the spoiler below.

    If you already have a softmod with HBC installed, you can update your softmod with this guide.

    Note: 4.3 wiis can skip installation of ios58 and 61, and simply load Hackmii from the HBC.

    Backup and Format your sd-card
    Extract MMM-58-61.zip to sd:\
    Load the HomeBrew Channel
    Launch Multi-Mod Manager -MMM will load
    -Select Wad Manager -Press A
    -Press 1, -press A -Install all wads
    -IOS58 and IOS61 will install
    -Press "any button"
    -Press 2- load "App Manager"
    -Select hackmii_installer_v0.8 -Press A
    Hackmii Installer Loads

    Follow the whole guide but start from that spoiler. You want make sure you make a nand backup if you haven't got one. Make sure to install priiloader to block updates so you don't have this problem again.

    I used the fat32 loading guide to setup my hard drive, link is \/

    ah, i'm kinda stuck then...

    because after the "Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed" section.... when i go to 4.3U (my current version), i don't have any of these games! lol

    4.3u/e- Indiana PWNS
    Smash Stack 4.3u/e/j/k
    4.3u/e/j - YU-GI-OWNED! or YU-GI-VAH
    4.3u/e/j Lego Star Wars
    4.3u/e/j Bat HAXX
    Eri HaKawai- Tales of Symphonia 4.3u/e

    looks like i'm going to BestBuy tomorrow to pick one up

    does it matter if i just do the first part of the hack now ("Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed") and the game part tomorrow? in other words, can i use the Wii or does it have to all be done in succession?

    thanks.

    You don't have to use a game. Do the letterbomb option.

    oh, ok, thanks... i saw that said for 4.3 instead of 4.3U (which is my version), so thought i couldn't use that one.

    that was pretty easy

    did all of Chapter 1!

    do i have to complete Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 or can i go straight to the Fat32 loading guide??

    nevermind....nevermind....lol

    going through it all now and completing the entire guide

    LOL. Yeah man, follow the whole guide and you'll be set. Chapter 2 is installing cIOS and Priiloader, you definitely need that to block updates. So your not in this situation again. And chapter 3 will get you some up to date apps.
