    4.3u help needed

    A bright idea to play backups and 72 hours later here I am! I have HBC installed using the 0.8 package. My wii does not have a internet connection so everything is done off a sandisk 2g sd card. After two days of screwing up my system I came to a point where nothing would load. Bootmii would freeze at start, any application started with HBC would freeze as well. I tried everything in a attempt to backup my nand and softmod the system.

    --First lesson learned, leave the nunchuk unplugged during the process of dealing with bootmii.

    Now at the point of desperation, I read that the HBC that comes in the Hackmii 0.8 package tends to lock up when run from a system without an internet connection. Really frustrated because I couldnt backup the nand and nothing was working from hbc.... I formatted the wii system memory. Of course that seemed to work for a minute with all of my effort down the drain and erased. Upon trying to install HBC and bootmii again I realized that the format is trully not a full format because it was screwed up even worse than before. I handed the remote to my 7 year old son and he put the disk "Wii Resort" in. Of course I was thinking he is going to pissed when he finds out his system is messed up. He comes into the kitchen and tells me it wants to update. Not sure what thats all about because, again... theres no internet connection.
    The wii resort game gave a warning that in order to play a update was needed. Any altercations to the system would be erased. I clicked "update". Again... no internet connection at all. The system was like brand new again after update.

    So..

    Screwed up system, no internet, format memory, put in Resort with no internet connection. Update. I dunno what happened there but it worked fine for restoring me back to scratch.

    I hope that helps someone who was in the same shape as me.

    Now I have HBC and bootmii once again and I am taking my time. Bootmii is installed as boot 1 as that was the only option. I cannot do a nand backup from bootmii because the reset buttom does not choose "select". I currently have ios58. I would like to softmod the system but in every guide I come to the point of nand backup using bootmii. Can someone please help. What could be causing the reset button not to choose select. Also, whats the best guide for softmod with 4.3u? Is there another way to backup the nand without using bootmii? Thanks in advance.

    One last thing.. I almost forgot to ask. I am not clear on something. The files that bootmii put on the sd card when installing it as the ios... they must remain on the sd in order to boot bootmii correct? If I do get to the point where I can backup the nand, it must be a different sd card? I have nothing for a ios on boot 2.. could that be causing a problem?

    I used Mauifrog's guide last week to softmod my 4.3U.

    The reset button you should be trying should be on the console itself. The Power, Reset, and Eject are the navigation buttons. Press Power 3 times followed by Reset 2 times.

    The disc had an update on it. no internet connection needed. Start the soft mod over and follow the guide in my signature. FOLLOW IT WORD FOR WORD> like jt said the power,reset and eject buttons are navigation buttons at that point in the guide. or use a gamecube controller. and yes on bootmii Q.. you need it on the sd. after you back up your nand, wiikey, and bin. save it to the computer and/or another sd. its preference...and you do not have boot2. you have bootmii and ios.

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here
