Allow me to help you understand what an exploit/vulnerability is. An exploit is a vulnerability that exists in the system software/hardware that allows users access abilities that were never intended by the manufacturer. Without them you can never softmod a Wii. Your folder structure looks fine. If the checksum matched up and you're using a 2GB card, you should try another SD card or another exploit/vulnerability.

I did an update via the wii menu on a virgin 4.3E (prior to the v21 shop channel release) and then did this softmod with no problems. I would try doing the letterbomb download again, double check your mac address and make sure you choose the correct region. Apparently, if you get the captcha wrong it resets the region. From memory I had to go back a couple of days to find the bomb.
This might sound silly but in your original post you said you copied the downloaded files to the root of your sd card. Just to be certain you did unzip them first? I'm guessing you did as you posted the folder structure just thought I would check in case I just extracted straight to the root of the sd card.

Downgrade to/Upgrade to/Install System Menu v4.1 (Optional, but Recommended!!)
I was doing the downgrade, I have done 2 other Wii,s, and received errors -6 I think. By the the time I got a piece of paper, I was back to the Wii Mod 3.2 Menu and Install System Menu: System Menu 4.1 with region , version, required, choose install where back listed as before. Do I have a problem
Thanks for you guide and Help !!!

When I complete the guide, I try a USB disk (that works on another wii without problems) but it doesn't recognised...
I remember that in previous guides it were mentioned to install a specific ios for USB HDD drives, etc.... Any help for this problem?

OK im sorry if I am posting this on the wrong thread....My wii is sofmodded and I have 4.1u and sofmodded my wii with a game. I have wadmanager 1.7 and it fails to load. I cant get into bootmii cause I dont have the bootmii folder on my sd card and dont have it anywhere. All I want to do is install a wad file and cant do it due to this problem. I was thinking maybe virginizing my wii and starting fresh. How would I go about doing this or is there a way I can get the bootmii folder so I can install a wad...any suggestions on what I should do? It would be nice to virginize and start fresh though

It is not possible to "virginize" a Wii nor is it ever recommended. Just follow the guide again to get Bootmii and install your wad. If you don't want to do that, try using MultiMod.
