Ok. My games are running better than they used to after following this mod compared to the other guide i used. BUT super mario galaxy still has video playback issues!! ugh... i dont know what else to try here. any ideas? my HDD is listed on teh compatibility list and is configured properly. i have the cfg loader in the app pack at the beginning of this thread.
the game plays fine, but on any cut scenes the video will freeze for two seconds then play fine for a while, then freeze for two seconds then play fine for a while... etc... before i couldn't even get past the first video because it would freeze, but i can now as it only locks up a little bit... i'm so lost on this.
sm 4.3u, black wii.
thanks for any help!

Wii 4.3u softmod... Newbie question...
First off I want to introduce myself.... my name is Whitey and its a pleasure to meet everyone! I am new to this site, but I have soft modded a wii a couple years ago for my nephew with twilight princess and works great. I just bought a new Wii and its software version is 4.3u. My question is this:
Can I use Letterbomb or Whatever or do I have to use one of the game exploits? I just didnt want to have to buy the game lol, but if I absolutely have to so I can play my game back-ups then so be it. Thanks!! Again, nice to meet everyone here.

I`ve posted here due to directly related to this method.
I have verified the same file structure files in Chapter 2 of my 1Gb sandisk SD card
But when i go to the SD card menu the installing box flashes up for less than a second
straight away and nothing else happens no error nothing. I`ve rebooted the wii several
times with the same result.
Is this due to the wrong version trying to be installed?
Is there anyway of `seeing` the version i have as i thought i have an old version 3.0 - 4.1
what would cause the install to instantly stop?
As i said probably mega newb error but using this method

So I take it as a NO on doing this softmod with only the GC controllers until my sensor comes in the mail?

So I followed this guide through and through. everything loaded and worked perfectly. I got a 320gb USB HDD, Formatted to Fat32, clean HDD. I need to be forwarded to a guide that shows how to load everything from the hdd. Looking at installing WiiFlow but theres so many different ones im not sure which one is safe to use. I have emulators and other good stuff on my SD. should i just transfer everything over from the SD to HDD?

Just copy the root of your SD card over to the root of your HDD, then remove your sd card. Most channel forwarders look for both the sd and usb, so if you encounter any issues you may need to manually change the paths in the individual app to look toward the usb.
As far as Wiiflow is concerned, there is no "safety" issue, it is a matter of personal preference. I have tried many different versions, and they never have posed a safety problem. v417 works great (for me anyways)
EDIT: After accessing the HBC press 1 and you can set where you want the HBC to load from, sd or usb.

Thanks for the quick reply. One more question, when installing a updated USB Loader, or WiiFlow. and it's recommended in IOS222, When installing wad's do i need to change it to IOS222 or leave it at IOS249?.

Yeah after doing some more reading I figured it out. lol. I am in the process of making my Nand backup now, I had trouble finding the letterbomb app, so I went to their site and found out to go into the Wii's message board and wala, there was the letter with the bomb in the envelope. Thanks for your response jax!! I will keep everyone updated on my install. Im sure it will be smooth. I have one of the newest wii's(the blue one) and it doesnt have game cube options and from what I have read I will have to have all my back ups load from my external usb hdd. atleast I wont have to buy discs!!!
