First off I want to say THANKS for such a great guide!
I now have a softmodded wii :)
I just have a slight problem that I need help with....My Wiiflow app freezes my wii upon startup, and NeoGamma just reverts back to the system menu whenever I press start :( :( :(
I followed the guide to a tee and before I got to the final step (Chapter 3) I noticed my System Menu already had USBLoaderGX, Wiiflow, NeoGamma, Backup HC, and CFG Loader installed. So I neglected to proceed with extracting APP-PACK-V3b.zip to my sd and booting my wii. Does this have to do with anything? Do I need to fresh install these apps seperately?
Please help me...I have successfully softmodded my wii on to be stumped by this :/ lol
That has everything to do with it. The channels you see on your wii are forwarders (like shortcuts) that point to the apps folder that you will have once you do that last step.

Thanks a million for the help, appreciate it!
I assume this tutorial works with a already modded unit.
I have modded my unit to v4.1, but want to update it to v4.3 using the tutorial.
Need to download the APP-PACK and put onto the SD CArd, that is why those applications won't work properly. I fixed my problem after I ran into the same problems you were having.
Yes it will work with an already modded Wii. This guide will not update you to 4.3, nor do you need to. All 4.3 did was kill homebrew, nothing more. This guide will update everything else for you though.

thanks in advance
1. doesnt matter
2. no, the letter just wouldn't show up
Thank you cjizzle, just softmodded 4.3 wii for a friend :)
about my wii: if i update 4.2 sm to 4.3 sm online from nintendo (i know i don't have to) and i have the last HBC installed, would it delete HBC or just the cios's? would i have to start maui's guide from zero or from the part says i got HBC?
the reason i ask is because one of the kids here might try updating and mess with priiloader (they want 4.3, all the kids have it, you know kids :) ...), so i prefer doing it myself.
thanks in advance
It would delete the cIOS and priiloader. You could restart the guide at chapter 2.
