I purchased a new Wii from Costco and found that its version is 4.0U. Now this site says that if the version is below 4.1, DO NOT UPGRADE and use the guide "New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii" by Dogeggs. But I find this guide for the 4.2 version is much simpler and easier to understand. Should I not upgrade to 4.2U and use this newer guide instead of the old one where I see more complexity?
Also, if any of you guys backed up the NAND flash, were you able to use the Wii remote or were you forced to use the Gamecube controller? I do not have the Gamecube controller and if I do the softmod, then I will back up the NAND flash. It that requires me to use the GC Controller, then I need to buy it before hand, before I start to the softmod. If none of you requried it, then I am probably safe to start the mod without the GC controller.
Please reply. I am a noob.
Thanks in Advance :D
-I should now also mention I got the channels working but they seem to do nothing except take up space and black out (does it matter which storage device you pick? i.e. Mass storage device 1.1 or 2)
Read the other tutorial carefully and several times through. After your careful reading if you still have questions, please post them as clearly as possible in that forum.
Your Wii will need to use the GC controller to navigate the bootmii menu. While you are out buying that controller, pick up a SanDisk 2GB SD, NOT SDHC. Before you start the softmod, make sure you have Internet access ON and WiiConnect24 OFF.
Awesome speediness, so the only difference in hacking the wii from before(4.1) is you have to remove the IOS249 stub? Is that it?
hey thanks got it 2 work u have saved my wii!
That was good that your card worked. The SD card reading from the various apps used in the softmod can be tricky-anyway, it worked for you so that was good. Your USB Loader certainly acts like you installed a forwarder.
Ok I can't play back ups on neogamma r7 yet. I have installed the cios 3.4 in order to get the iso 36 with the trucha. and now I installed the start patch 4.2 and still nothing. the usb launcher works. What am I doing wong? sombody help.
Thanks a lot, it works on my first-time softmode wii 4.2u, all fist package..
