    Hello guys,

    It's me again Charlze.

    I just wanna share my experience in softmodding wii's. I don't know if this solution had been said before but anyway I just want to share it and might help someone out there.

    This was my 4th time to softmod a black 4.3u wii (4th game console too) , I had followed this guide to the T and had no problems whatsoever until I launched the different usb loaders. Config USB loader is my favorite.

    This was my procedure.

    1. I turned off the wii after softmodding.
    2. Plugged External HDD (to the USB port closest to the edge)
    Note: WD Passport Essential 500GB - working on our 3 softmodded wii.
    Simpletech 40GB - working on our 3 softmodded wii.
    3. Turned on the wii, launched Config USB
    Error: cannot mount device
    I tried some loaders and the wii cannot detect the usb drive. This happened to both of the USB HDD that I have.

    2nd Procedure

    1. I turned off the Wii.
    2. I removed the USB HDD.
    3. I turned on the WII.
    4. I launched the Config USB loader, and waiting for the mounting device screen to appear (that is when the config usb loader is showing RETRYING ..
    5. I plugged in the USB hard disk and then the wii was able to mount my device and I was able to play the games that were on my USB. I hope this can help someone out there who will encounter this problem.

    Is it safe to backup my NAND periodically? I followed this guide a while back but have made quite a few Shop Channel purchases since then, I assume it would be safe to make a new NAND backup to protect these purchases in case of an emergency but I just wanted to double check first. Wouldn't want my Wii NAND becoming damaged from BootMii copying the data several times.

    @SNES: yes, you can back up your NAND as often as you want. NAND does have a finite lifespan, but reading is far less of an issue than constant writing

    @whiz: it used to be included in mauifrog's guide, but has since been removed (note to ops: it still speaks of it in the FAQ for the softmod any wii guide). If you're interested whiz, look here.

    Great thanks, but I'm curious. You said the NAND has a finite lifespan, so does that mean eventually it will die on its own?

    @SNES: under normal usage, the console will be obsolete by the time it matters. A lot of Wiis have factory "bad blocks" out of the gate, for example. Think SD card longevity (barring dropping it or abusing it, etc). Sneek et al allow for you to use either a SD card or other media to emulate the NAND for folks who are heavy into games that normally would be stored on the NAnD etc (why put wear and tear unnecessarily on the Wii's NAND, right?)

    Thank you for the explanation, I've actually just started using EmuNAND myself so it looks like that was a smart move
    The only problem I have with EmuNAND is that I can't use something DIOS MIOS with it, but then again I have been using Devolution lately anyway so I guess that's not too big a deal.

    Edit: I did notice last time I backed up my NAND that I had 1 bad block but this time but this time it showed all blocks are fine.

    Hi, once you have decided on a particular loader of choice (cfg usb loader) what is the best method of uninstalling the other loader channels/forwarders from the system menu? Is it as simple as deleting the channel through the wii settings/data management menu and then deleting the appropriate apps from the app folder on the sd card or should you use Wiimod?

    Also, can somebody explain the difference between a channel and a forwarder please?

    Google for Channel and Forwarder definition and it's application.
    For a Forwarder, you need to keep the programm files in SD card in Wii, while Channels not.

    I did do some research but wasn't 100% certain. So they both appear on the wii system menu but the app for a channel resides on NAND and the app for the forwarder resides on the sd or usb hdd.

    Do you know how to delete unwanted forwarders from the system menu?
