    There's an option in this guide to install system menu 4.1, but it's optional.
    Although SM 4.1 is the preferred SM to be on.

    EDIT: yes do the IOS update.

    dumb question, first time wii hacker, my wii is currently 4.3u, was wondering if I can use the 4.3 guide without game disc or because it's 4.3u do I need to use the game disc guide? Thanks in advance!

    The character designation after indicates region, in your case "u" for "usa".

    But to the point, yes, you can use the 4.3 letterbomb method.

    I cannot get any loader to read my hard drive..

    No matter which loader I use I cannot get it to read my hard drive. It's plugged into the correct port. I have tried a flash drive, sd card and a 500gb toshiba canvio. I've tried FAT32 and WBFS formats. I've also tried loading the drive via wbfs manager 3.0 and wii backup manager. I've went through this soft mod process twice. I've also read the newbie introduction to wii hacking. Any advice would be much appreciated. I may have just pulled some idiotic move but I've hacked all of my phones, ipads and other stuff so I'd like to think I have some basic knowledge. Any idea what I'm missing? Thanks in advance!!!

    The drives need to be primary and active, that is the most common mistake people make. The drive also needs to be compatible, we have a list on the site.

    Sent with WiiHacks app, that should explain any typos 8-p

    It is set as the primary and set as active but the hard drive itself isn't listed. I just purchased the newest model of the Toshiba Canvio. E05A050CAU3XW. That must be my issue. I'll purchase one from the list and see if that takes care of it. Thanks again.

    Question Just need a few instructions spelt out a bit more --please

    Hi, I'm still hovering on the edge of modding my wii - just waiting for a time with no children distracting me....
    anyway i think i understand pretty much the whole process set out in the guide and i know it will probably make sense when i'm actually doing it but could someone please just spell out this little bit for me:
    In Chapter 2, Part 1. WAD installs you install 30 wads then 3 wads and then press B to go back a folder
    THe guide then gives you the option of updating IOS and wii channels. I don't need to do either of these things but I am a bit confuised where i start following the guide again once I skip them.
    Do I start again at the bit under updating wii channels that says
    Press 2 to load the MMM App Manager
    You should now be in the App Manager of MMM
    Launch "HomeBrew Channel Loader"
    The Homebrew Channel loads

    or do I start following it again at Part 3 install priiloader
    as i said I know this will possibly be clear when I'm actually doing it but i would prefer to clairfy before I start.
    thanks to anyone who can take the time to advise
