Hi + advice for complete noobs like me
Thanks to mauifrog for the awesome softmod guide - I installed HBC + USB GX a couple of years ago, then my Wii got "upgraded" to 4.3. No-one took responsibility...
HBC still loaded (but no USB Loader) so was able to follow mauifrog's guide. It's all back and running now, and I no longer have to get off the couch to switch discs.
If you're as clueless as me and looking to do a softmod, do yourself three favours:
1. Read the "ALL INFO - New Wii Owners - Welcome to wiihacks.com - Newbies / Beginners read here" post THOROUGHLY.
2. Read "http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-guides-tutorials/69252-wii-softmodding-basics-beyond.html"
3. Read each chapter of the softmod tutorial twice before you start to walk through it. If you did 1 & 2, you probably won't have any questions, but ask before even thinking about doing anything that's not in the guide!
