You said in your tutorial to use verbatim dvd-r, do i need 16x or 8x as it says i can buy both when I've googled them to buy them, i know to burn at 2x but i dont want to buy then wrong ones, thanks.
Would these be any good - 50 VERBATIM DVD-R DVDR DISCS, 4.7GB, 120MINS, 16X SPEED on eBay (end time 10-Dec-09 17:04:43 GMT)

USB loader works great to run backup's.
Whereas, DVD backup's give 1101 error. Used Verbatim DVD-R, imgburn, 2x
I read that some new Wii's have chip inside that blocks running backup DVDs. Any workarounds for this? Does it mean I can not be able to play movie DVDs using mplayer?
can someone please help me out with an answer to this question:
DO I NEED TO RESTART THE WII IN BETWEEN STEPS B AND C? :confused:

Hope this helps
Ok a few questions as I've read through a good portion of this post but im not clear on a few things
Do i need an active internet connection for the wii when attempting this softmod or can all of the internet stuff be done on my PC,
Also, is there any way to play the games directly from the games channel?
I have firmwarei 4.2u with a serial lu64
After installing this mod will I be able to play all region backups as i've read 4.2 causes issues with that
Can all of this be done using the standard wii controller?
I've already downloaded VC games will I be able to play those after completing this guide?
Is there a recommended size SD card that should be used as i have to buy a new one anyways?
If I install bootmii to IOS does that mean bootmii will always come up first? If so is there a way to make the wii menu come up first again?
thanks Tel, I got the USB Loader to work, now I just need to use a USB
but now I wanted to get the StartPatch working, I went into the Dop IOS and
and when it was installing the right IOS it went to a screen with a lot of random crap and I had to shut down my Wii because it was frozen, I tried IOS 36 and IOS 70 both did the same thing
does this mean that they worked or didn't work?
I tried the Wii mote (I took out the batteries and put them back in and it wouldn't reconnect) and I tried a GC controller, both couldn't unfreeze the screen
the Wii still works though
as i post earlier trying to hack my wii 4.2u. now my problem that it cant seem to read downloaded files (extracted into 5files) in my SD card .. i tried 2 diffrnt card formatted as instructed (transcend 2gb / scan disk 4gb sdhc). i downloaded all the files here & it doesnt boot up. but when i try to delete the files & put dow nloaded channels from nintendo& photos it can read the sd card ... HELP ... thanks so much!
