I hope that some of you smart people can help me with my question. I have been reading this forum because i am going to hack my wii this weekend. I have installed boot mii to my pc, answered all the questions, and have created my sd card. Included on the boot mii files was a text file with instructions. I noticed that the instructions on this forum are way different/more involved than the boot mii instructions. What are the differences between following the boot mii instructions and following this guide?
when I Click "Verify Sums" again, Select "UpdatePack.md5" i got 19 errors, is that correct?
It sounds like you haven't downloaded the update pack. Read the guide again and look for it next to where you downloaded the first mod pack.

Format the sd-card (not optional)
ModPack-AnyWii.zip, mirror AndUpdatePack.zip , mirror
this file has a password, it is found above; at the beginning, and below; at the end.
(4.2/4.3+ wiis can skip UpdatePack.zip)
If you plan to region change your wii, download 4.1-region_change.zip and verify the check sum.
Extract to sd:\
Requires a standard SD card, 1-2g scandisk is best. SDHC cards will not work.
Click "Verify Sums", Select "ModPack-AnyWii.md5"
All check sums should verify without error (very important)
Click "Verify Sums" again, Select "UpdatePack.md5"
Have 350 free blocks of nand space
Remove all GC controllers and GC memory cards
Don't lose power
I downloaded both ModPack-AnyWii.zip, and UpdatePack.zip in this section that was all that was asked to d/l unless you were changing regions
Also I insert my SD card into the Wii with ModPack and Update pack on it and nothing else because the instructions were to format it prior to this. I go to the HBC and load bootmii and my Wii goes black with the blue light continuing to blink
The differences are something that you can easily read the text file and this guide and make comparisons yourself.

Did you EXTRACT the files? Did you run md5summer.exe on the PC? The UpdatePack isn't necessary if this is a 4.2/4.3 Wii; you talk a lot but don't say much, lol.
Red Wii 4.3u
Soft modded successfully following directions posted on the beginning of this thread as of yesterday. 12/17/10 using Option 1- Indiana PWNS (edit to the creator of this mod - it was not that hard or confusing to me,I just had to do it,which took a few times to completely understand/comprehend)
This makes the second Wii soft modded the first one is 4.2u Soft modded 11/18/10
I would like to add that my wife assists,because I get excited and ahead of myself,she truly helps me to keep it together.
My wife says thank you.
My Wii is a 4.1U.
I completed all of chapter 1 - then formatted my SD card.
I downloaded the two files Modpack and update pack and those are the only two things on my SD card - is that correct?
I have both on my desktop - I run md5summer.exe and get 0 errors for ModPack-AnyWii.md5 but 19 errors when i verify UpdatePack.md5
Do you have a learning disability? Re-read my post...
yes i extracted the two zip files is that what you are referring too?
