Which is much appreciated.
Correct, I used LetterBomb to get started.
From your post I assume Bannerbomb is somehow less tricky.
With SM 4.3, regionfree is no problem because the USB loader takes care of that.
With BootMII installed as boot2 I believe I've got the best brick protection I can get.
If BootMII can't use boot2 I agree SM 4.1 is your best option.
Not to argue, just for better understanding all this. :045:
Incorrect, but reasonable post. LetterBomb exists solely for SM4.3; BannerBomb works on a few SM that are < 4.3 and doesn't require an active internet connection in order to cause a stack overflow (thus allowing for unsigned code to run).
SM4.3 for hardmodders (a rare breed nowadays) prevents out of region playing, whereas you say, for softmodding it's a non-issue.
The best brick PROTECTION you can get (aside from following directions, lol) is Priiloader. BootMii/boot2 is the best brick RECOVERY tool or option you have. Protection and recovery are not the same thing. Certain types of bricks (not full bricks) can be overcome with a System Update via disc or other means. If you're already @ 4.3, there's "nowhere to go" in terms of an update to serve as a method of brick recovery.
There's no added functionality with SM4.3 or 4.2, pure and simply they are viewed as merely further attempts by Nintendo to block what this guide accomplishes (Nintendo will say and for a percentage of the population they'd be correct, for piracy --- but that's not this guide's purpose --- the legitimate ability to play backups when kids tend to break/lose/damage expensive optical discs).
If anyone is wondering...I tried the combination with the PNY micro sd card adapter and the Sandisk 2gb Micr SD Card and it worked. I created the exploit using Wilbrand Launcher though because please.hackmii letterbomb site will just not work for my MAC address prefix. Anyway I did not use the exploit yet cause I just wanted to see if the wii would accept it and it did. One question though...Can I use the exploit at a later date or would I have to create another more recent one? Or would I just have to go back a further on the message date on the wii?

On part 3 AFTER I back up the Bootmii files to my pc,then they can be deleted from the SD Card? If everything went as planned so far and the backup was made?

Sorry but I have read that part of the guide several times and it does not really specify.
Please don't live up to your namesake :hopelessness:
Yes, after you safely have backed them up, you can delete them from the card. DO NOT LOSE YOUR BACKED UP NAND and those files. It tells you to FORMAT the card and the guide says you need a full SD card --- not cards :)
I am not a pirate
lmao Don't worry I do not intend to "pirate" anything nor do I intend to even hint at it here. I ACTUALLY READ the forum rules lol. I have a 3 and 5 year old and NEED to back up my LEGALLY purchased games and any future games.

on the guide is says : If you would like to update your Wii IOS:
Download IOS Update.zip (If you are on a System Menu version other than 4.3, you need this!)
But I was looking at a video were a person was softmodding his 4.3U MS Wii and said to download the CIOS pack. So in short if my Wii is running SM 4.3U I dont need to download CIOS pack?
Since I'm running 4.3U MS can I downgrade to 4.1? to take advantage of the "few brick fixing options available with SM 4.1 that are not available with 4.2 or 4.3."? or am I good at 4.3U if everything goes well?
You're being a Zombie, not a pirate. I don't even understand the latest question as the answer is in the material you quoted. And it's obvious you read my other reply to another user here (helimod), yet you're asking the same thing wherein the answer is already there.
