Worked flawlessly. I haven't yet had to mod a 4.3 Wii and was a little hesitant (since this one was for my son's GF - imagine the wrath if it bricked!!!!) but the install went so easy that I'm now doing my freinds 4.3 this weekend.
Hardest thing was finding a retail copy of the necessary game. Ended up buying a copy of Yu-gi-oh 5D for AUD$45.
Thanks xflak!!! You're a champion.
Hello xflak! i'm so eager to try your downloader, as soon as i get a wii...
I've downloaded it and I'm liking it a lot so far! Even though I didn't get the console yet, i've tried some options and it worked perfectly..
But I have 2 questions.. what's the difference between Modmii and NusDownloader? They seem to be different programs from screenshots I saw of Nus..
The other question is does any1 know when nintendo is going to launch channel 4.4? Any rumors so far? I'm going to buy the wii only on June, so I'm worried nintendo would launch a new channel and leave me out of the modding community :036:
NUS Downloader downloads files from NUS (nintendo's servers), ModMii's uses a command line version of nus downloader to do the same thing. There are slight differences in how they pack WAD files, but in the end their output will install the same content to your Wii.

NUS Downloader would require user input in order to download each file individually. Using ModMii's Wizard, u wont accidentally download files for the wrong region or stubbed files that can brick your Wii.
Of course ModMii does so much more than just download files from NUS, like building custom guides, downloads apps and hacks required to mod your Wii. ModMii is designed to be a full soft modding solution with an interactive wizard and guide generator. NUS Downloader just downloads files from NUS, which is helpful for the experienced modders who know what their doing and don't feel like using ModMii.
And no one knows when ninty will put out another update. But I can tell u that even if they were to put out a new 4.4 update today, you wouldn't see 4.4 wii's in stored for at least a few weeks, probably more like a couple months. So if this happens, just don't do an official update and your Wii will still be softmoddable. Also, all the security in the updates in the past were circumvented within days of their release... so the hacking community will likely overcome any protection ninty puts in 4.4 very quickly. And if your Wii is USA or JAP, you will be able to use the smash stack exploit (with an original copy of super smash bros brawl) even on 4.4 (It is rumoured that the smash stack exploit can NEVER be prevented by any update, as the exploit is in the game itself)
But yea, I would recommend you try to buy your console used anyways. The older Wii's are able to have bootmii installed @ boot2 (meaning greater brick protection) and also play backup discs. You'll spend less, and have a more powerful console, just without the warranty (and warranty is voided once u softmod anyways)... but if you have bootmii @ boot2 and a nand backup... you're pretty much brick proof... only risk is hardware failure.
Thanks for the answer, xflak! That is very good news u just gave me!!
Well I do love Brawl, it`s the first Wii game i`m buying as soon as I get it, so it`s good to know that ninty might not be able to correct the bug in this game!!
I had one Wii but I sold it 2 years ago.. and now I miss it :p
I can`t wait to get it! Having a PS3 + a Wii = fun all the way.
Again, thanks for your answer, it was very helpful!
I used the ModMii fixing a 4.2E,and everything worked fine.
Thank you ,it is a great app.
I used the dark Wii theme included-being a bit worried during the proccess - which installed great.I noticed afterwards,that very few free blocks remained in my wii memory.
Is the dark wii theme so "block consuming"?
I have only two savegames,and 5 channels.
I don't think that themes take up space. Check how large your channels are.

Well,I just checked the channels,and found that there was a channel about the internet(not the internet channel itself) tha was consuming the amazing amount of
