Black Wii Help!!!
Okay, few questions here; Is the Black wii the same hardware as the White Wii? I assume it has Boot2v4?.
I bought my Black wii with 4.2U, I softmodded using the bannerbomb and flashed it using the 4.2U softmod guides. When It came to flash in 4.2U I had to use the V14 wad's instead of the V15's which I thought was Ironic because I assume V15 is newer? It gave me an error in the Wad Manager. I could only install BootMii Boot2 as cIOS I'm pretty sure but it ran fine, USBloader was installed as well as Neogamma r7.
I updated to 4.3U (Using Internet Update) I now have Sleep Mode which wasn't available on the 4.2U (Sleep mode turns the LED indicator light yellow on a soft shutdown) and Homebrew channel is still installed after the 4.2U softmodd to 4.3U Update. But I lost functionality of the USBloader program and neogamma.
I don't know how to update my softmod? I can run homebrew channel just fine so I can run any of the wad managers I just don't know how to patch any of the internals. Is it safe with the Black Wii?
I noticed in 4.3U that when launching the SD Card file menu in the Wii menu it crashes with a black screen, I figured to block from installing the Bannerbomb.
Either than that I can load any homebrew like WiiMc/WiiSX just nothing to do with USB/Dvd backups.
What do I do to update my softmod if I'm at 4.3U on a Black Wii previously Softmodded on 4.2U HBC still installed on 4.3U *and working*
sounds like bannerbomb is still on your sd card (causing it to crash when clicking the sd icon)
you'll have to follow some of mauifrog's 4.3 guide as the update wiped out your cIOS's
Your post essentially makes no sense at all. V14 wads of what, or V15 for that matter lol. You can't install BootMii as cIOS -- only as boot2 or IOS (if a black Wii, should be the latter). Then you broke a cardinal rule: accepted an official update. Sleep mode you say --- um, hello --- that's standby mode (which was available on 4.2). Best to make your way over to the Introductions section of the site and make a quick hello. You'll get valuable (and in your case, much-needed) links to assist in this.
Thought about posting a short Hello in the Introduction section?
Would have given you a useful set of links inlcuding one to our Softmod 4.3 Wiis guide.
Never update your wii. No game needs a specific firmware version to get it running.
You just need to resoftmod as you killed any cIOS on your system. Check the 4.3 guide or the softmod any wii guide linked below and use the option "hbc is present" and use it to run MMM etc.
Remove the private folder/bannerbomb to avoid the wii freezing.
Ever tried to run a game off a disc? That should not work as you likely have a new dvd drive with a D3-v2 or D4 chip on it preventing any burned disc from being played. Go for usb loading :)
I bought the Black Wii with 4.2U Official, I softmodded using the Bannerbomb. It's not on my SD Card anymore since I deleted it (I backed up the 4.2U Softmod SD Card) as I have updated using Nintendo's Official Update I don't need 4.2U Softmodding tools anymore.
The Black wii was store bought, and did not even have stand by at all in 4.2U which I thought was Odd because my little brothers older White Wii had it and I just recently got it with the update of 4.3U.
Homebrew channel is installed on 4.3U Sytem Menu. I had to flash the cIOS250-v14's, cIOS250-v15's wouldn't install in the Wad Manager when flashing. That's what I thought was odd.
The lease of my problems.
History if you need it;
Store Bought Black Wii; 4.2U Installed.
Installed Bannerbomb-> Installed Homebrew Channel
BootMii installed, Was only able to install as IOS, as Boot2 failed to install.
Updated using Nintendo's official Update[Network], They didn't remove HBC, As it's still installed and Running (I updated HBC in 4.2u from 1.0.7 to 1.0.8 the darktheme)
I run Multi Mod Manager installer and I can access Wad Manager, but I don't know what wad's to flash to gain USB compabality back on 4.3U.
Broken after 4.3U Update?
->Bannerbomb SD Cards will not load, crashing
->BootMii does not run from HBC Menu
->USB compatibility (UsbLoader/NeoGamma) is a total loss, as well as DVD but I had that lost in 4.2U Anyways.
Standby is maintened by enabling wiiconnect24 (present on all versions) in the wiisettings which is not really recommended as it is no full shut down of the wii, is connecting to nintento servers all the time, usb drives gets power / the console itself can get overheating damage on the long run.
where you get any v15 wad from? nothing on wiihacks includes that. so you are now on 4.3 and nothing is working --> use the 4.3 guide.
Yes but 4.3U guide says I need a Game? Do I need a game to flash my Wii if I still have functionality of HBC already? I can run Multi Mod manager to flash any wad's needed to regain USB loading.
Edit; Thank you! I read your post, sorry the forums are going slow on my end? Could be the torrents but yea, Thanks a lot.

Is there some other way? NO
Can I bannerbomb? NO
It says I need a game, like I said. There's so much backwards info ffs.
so do it, or as mentioned look at the softmod any wii guide which describes the routine if the hbc is still present.
make sure you install ios 58 you might also want to reinstall the hbc to ensure it is running on ios58.
please direct questions in one of the guides or join the chat to get hints on minor issues.
Nope, no methods work for what I want to accomplish without a game anyways.
don't understand as you should be able to run everything from your hbc, first option in the softmod any wii guide.
please direct questions in one of the guide threads after reading them from top to bottom. If you figure you need a game to resoftmod then do that.
Good luck again!
