    Specific error given? SD card being used? For a first post and an almost four year member, you're leaving out a helluva lot

    I softmodded years ago with the twilight hack and then stupidly updated my system and have only gotten around to doing it again tonight . Not sure why I signed up to be honest as I don't recall browsing much.

    I think I was getting a 1202 error or something like that which I think was to do with the checksums. It kept saying it was fine when I checked after copying to my SD card but it wouldn't work on the wii and then would get an error when checking again on my PC. I was using a Sandisk MicroSD 1GB with Sandisk SD adapter which gave me the previous error I'm now using a 32GB sandisk MicroSD card which when I try to go into the system update directory in Wii Mod just pushes the screen up and say 'Press any key to continue".

    Don't use a MicroSD or SDHC, use a 2gb full SD card and formatted FAT32 (and not via "quick" option).

    I only have access to MicroSD cards right now unfortunately (which were working fine for the most part up until now). Will I be able to exit to the Homebrew Channel and reload Wii Mod or will that brick the system? Also, if I do happen to brick the system due to this, will the Bootmii backup I made (boot2) be sufficient to resurrect my Wii? I have Priiloader installed if that makes a difference.

    Thanks for the help so far .

    If you have any issue, try to format with this format tool
    You shouldn't brick, no. If you installed BootMii as boot2 and have a NAND backup, you should be bullet-proof (meaning even if you would brick).

    I exited out and reloaded Wiimod and it installed fine! My main worry was bricking it by going back to the HBC as the guide says not to exit if any of the system Wads fail.

    Thanks for all the help. I'll search for a standard SD card for future endeavors .

    Confused

    Hello there
    I *think* i am ready to mod my wii, but I have some noob questions before i do so:
    -My Wii is running SM4.3E at the moment, which confused me when reading the guide: at some point the instructions (Step 2) say that you need to download some IOS update WADs if you are NOT on SM4.3. I guess i do not need these. What confused me is that since i preusmably have the "updated" IOSs corresponding to 4.3(i might be saying stupid stuff, i am not sure i understood well how this works), won't that be a problem when downgrading to 4.1?
    -Also, should any of the WADs fail to install because of who-knows-what reason, can the SD card be hot-swapped with another one and try again?
    I have the horizontal non-gamecube wii. I guess this one is as moddable as the other post-2008 wiis, right?

    Thanks in advance!

    You have the latest IOS with SM 4.3, yes. When you downgrade, you're really just downgrading the System Menu itself and unstubbing/altering a single, specific IOS it runs off of. So downgrading will still leave the later revisions of IOS for all other IOS --- meaning a downgrade doesn't downgrade all your IOS

    Use a full SD card (1gb or 2gb) and not any SDHC or MicroSD with adapter. Use the MD5 checksum program to verify the wads etc to avoid any need to "hot swap" SD cards. If they verify --- ALL verify --- then you're golden.

    The non-game cube Wii... I'm assuming you're referring to the production model without the GC ports, right? For the Wii side of things, yes this is perfectly moddable. You won't be able to use the GC features on this unit, but that's true all the same if you don't softmod it.
