Hi all ,,wish id found this site earlier.Forgive me if im posting in wrong place ,im still finding my way around here.I hacked my 4.3e wii from youtube last week and its working fine ,so me being me thought i would do same for my brothers 4.3e wii as a gift to his little boy .I used the same hackpack that i used for my own 4.3e ,,but when i had everything done i realised i had followed a tutorial for a 4.2 wii,the settings are totally different to mine,it also doesnt work as well especially with discs(works for some and not for others).Im terrified ive caused serious troube to the wii for my brother.When he asked why mine was better i told him i had a better wii than him(i couldnt admit to making a shambles of it to him)Please direct me to someone who can help..Ive drank gallons of coffee surfing the net to find an answer (i dont know if im shaking from all the coffee or the worry of messing his console)So finally i found you here,,Can i start all over again with the proper tutorial without having to delete everything ,,as im afraid of getting into a bigger mess !!!

Keep all Questions (Regarding To This Guide!!) To that thread.
By the way...Youtube = Failtube
Good day! I just softmodded my Wii using mauifrog guide. And I run big games using Wii Backup Manager and WiiFlow. The only last thing i need is to understand how to Run .WAD games from Wiiware and Virtual Console? Could you please point me to easy guides. Is it possible not to take out SD card from Wii to do it? Would really appreciate some help.
I recently bought a pre owned Wii from Gamestop and am slightly confused by your tutorial. The parts that are confusing are
"Never update your Wii to 4.3" but later on you said "You can now hack your 4.3 Wii with letterbomb"
So, should I update to 4.3 and then soft mod or just soft mod the firmware currently on it?
No need to update to 4.3. The ANY Wii guide will update everything that is needed.
Thanks cjizzle. And BTW This site ROCKS!

Why does it say "do not upgrade to 4.3" does that mean you can't mod wiis that have been system upgraded to 4.3 or does it mean do not update to 4.3 AFTER the softmod??
Firmware 4.2 and 4.3 is only "homebrew killer" and it doesn't bring any new functionality to Wii so if you softmod your Wii and than update it to 4.3 you will lost your firmware and if stars are in good place on haven you will get Santa's present - beautiful brick Wii (even you were bad boy last year).
Please follow guide - as its written - if you don't understand something read again :) or ask :)
