So I loved this guide. Modding Wii's seems to have become infinitely easier over the last year since I last did one. I have a 4.3U Wii that I just did the Letterbomb mod through this guide. All the IOS's installed, the cIOS installed fine, everything in the mod went without a hitch. I got USB Loader GX loaded and am using a Toshiba 320GB USB HDD (approved from list of compatible hdd's). I'm currently having two issues.
First, No games will load. I remember back on the 4.2 Wii's you had to use a Wad Manager and go through and individually patch and mod each stub and file to really get games to load effectively so I'm wondering if maybe this guide just doesn't cover that aspect? Or if the MMManager did all of that for me? I've tried with WiiFlow, USB Loader GX, and cfg loader and the same thing happens with each of them; a white screen pops up telling me the disc is dirty and needs to be cleaned. (???)
I tried forcing the patches to NTSC in case I had a random PAL download file but it didn't seem to change matters much. So first question would be, is there something extra I'm supposed to do? I've tried everything with the HDD, Fat32, wbfs, NTFS, followed the guides throughout the forum for each format. Didn't change the issue. So, would love to get this figured out.
My second big problem is coming up with the VC's. Right after the mod I put all my roms and emulators on my HDD and they loaded up just fine. Now I'm running into an issue that none of the VC's will see my HDD when it's plugged into the Wii. I currently have a wbfs format and a seperate 30 gig Fat32 format on my HDD for the VC's (Because old dog hesitant to new tricks). Tried reformatting the Fat32 partition, still nothing. Find it peculiar that it would work one time then not see the HDD any more. Any help here would be appreciated.
I guess my main concern is this whole mod process with your guide almost seems TOO simple. Like I've missed 30 steps along the way because so much of it was self managed.
I'm stuck on chapter 3. How do I install those apps?
Format your sd card then place the app pack on the sd card
I did that, but how do I install it on my wii?
Which apps to u want to show in the wii menu, do u want to do away with the sd card?
Hello, i have softmod 4.2 on my wii, i did it a long time ago and since 1 year i havent used wii, can you redirect me how to update to 4.3e, and how to prepare usb disk for wii games, thanks in advance!
Read the guide, there is a part for updating an already softmodded wii
I am trying to softmod a new black Wii console with system 4.3u
Went through chapter I without problems. Then reformatted the SD card and copied all files (except the optional IOS Update and Wii Shop Channel), checked MD5 without problems.
When I go into HB Channel and try launching Bootmii the screen goes black and the disc tray starts flashing blue.
I think it is because BootMii was installed as IOS and MMM included in the CIOS-Pack v5 is for loading as cboot2?
What should I do here? I have been searching this forums but found no answer.
Thanks for any help.
