Thanks very much for this how-to. I managed to completely upgrade to 4.3 on accident while installing Netflix before reading. This guide allowed me to softmod and I am now playing games off my usb HDD. Thank you for this excellent tutorial, it is greatly appreciated. Now to go download more homebrew.
i have accidentally upadated from 4.0 to 4.3e, can i still follow this guide and by updating do i have a stubbed system IOS file?
I'm reading softmodding for 4.3u wii w/o game disc. I have a question about this:
LetterBomb page that opens up does not have Region on top LetterBomb . Am I missing something, I can only see System Menu Version on top? Mine is going to be US regionQuote:
3. Download the HackMii installer
You can use the mac address to build a custom hackmii installer at LetterBomb
MAKE SURE YOU SELECT YOUR REGION up top
If you get the captcha wrong, it will RESET your region. This happened to me. If you do, the installer, well, in my case hung the wii. Had to hard boot it.
in the section for the letterbomb hack, the information for locating the mac addy is slightly incorrect. you click on console information, not console settings.
bout to try that new hack also.
thanks and cheers!
just used the letterbomb hack. SWEET! so much easier than a disc exploit.
Hi, I have a problem. My daugther accidently updated wii.
Initially when i modded the Wii it was v4.2U and after update v4.2U also??? Since the update the usb loader does not work if freezes. will not go to hard drive.
i followed this guide to update homebrew and got stuck on WAD Manager. it will not install the following 12 WAD's
._Neogamma CHANNEL r8 Auto Mod-NEOG.wad
._USBLoaderCFG - UCXF - IOS58 v9.wad
it gives me a reading (-1)
Please help i have stopped the process and waiting further instructions.
Ok I figured out what happened. My MAC deleted the WAD folder when i added the different packages. I completed the process without a problem. And USBLoader works but it shows me empty cover cases and tells me that no games are installed??? any solutions for this issue now???
