I posted this in my 4.3 guide to explain how I knew that Hacking Modding Nerd's guide was fail without watching it, but I did work on it awhile and I thought I would post it here too. It is true, just a bit "stretched."
I only had to watch the beginning, for a reason I am not proud of .
Once upon a time I was a complete newbie (and didn't know I had scoliosis). I had a skip in my step and a pocket full of dreams. I ventured to lands near and far, until my travels brought me to a land called "Youtube" where sunshine and flash ads never ended.
One day I stumbled upon a guide for USB loaders. For a moment, caution stopped me, for not all the video comments were positive, and that some had reported damaged Wii's. However, when I saw the name "Hacking Modding Nerd" I immediately dismissed them, for surely nobody would choose such a name unless he was an expert. And so I began my quest of turning my "just-barely deflowered Wii" into a "whore among whores" by installing channels and IOS's from the download pack. I followed the instructions perfectly, and watched the video several times to make sure I didn't stray from the expert's path.
However, it came to pass that before completing the final step, my Wii froze and I had to unplug it. Unfortunately, I was unable to enter the System Menu. I fell to my knees and let out a long resounding "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" The flash ads remained, but the sunshine was replaced by rainclouds. And so I wept . HMN had betrayed me.
Okay, so maybe I didn't cry, but I was a bit bummed out. It was also a sunny day. Take away the drama, and it is all true. Fortunately I had a bootmii backup with boot2, so I restored my Wii to it's former "just-barely deflowered" state.

You were lucky to have bootmii/boot2 then :P Don't worry, before I knew this place I did some pretty stupid things to my wii. Luckely I never used a youtube guide :P

I modded before I came to this site, and it was actually from a failtube vid
so I guess I was lucky and picked the right one to follow
When I started to mod my wii I was 13 years old and it was on my own. Just downloaded the bannerbomb exploit and followed the instructions in the readme that came with it. When I had the HBC already installed I began installing system menu themes downgrading and doing all kind of crazy things without bootmii or priiloader and luckily never bricked. Then I followed all kind of guides I found on the net none of them worked. but then I found WIIHACKS and all my problems were solved I installed bootmii as boot2 and priiloader. Now everytime I log in to wiihacks I learn something new, my modding skills have gotten better. And my english too
This is my story. sorry if you don't understand my english sucks.
Yeah, I've been on a bilingual school since I was 6.
