I have not really been on this site for some time as my Wii was been hibernating and i hope am posting on the correct thread here
My Wii is running SW version 4.2E, is this an old version now? Can anyone let me if there is a lastest update to this and the best way to install it?
In addition am using SD/USB Loader v1.4 (NOT Cfg USB Loader) by Waninkoko, i understand there is a 1.6, but how do i update to this version?
Talk about born again virgin to all this.....
I hope i can get some help guys/girls......
do NOT update to 4.3 systemmenu version..
you are quite good with 4.2 stay at that or even downgrade to 4.1 if you like using this guide.
sd/usb loader is outdated. do you want to go for usb harddrive loading?
if you are not running into major problems right now, you can do a slight update to your softmod like installing priiloader or getting a newer cIOS (that what is needed to run backups, from disc or usb drive).
maybe check out the softmod basics linked below to get a little overview.
this guide is perfect to run through and get a proper set up and a set off apps to use.
Firstly, a very big thanks for replying.
My aim is for USB hard drive loading, and currently using USB Loader. The problem is tha some games are loading and others are resulting in the 002# error.
So you think i should update my cIOS and not the USB Loader app? Ill do some reading on the Priiloader, and install it and see if that helps.
Are links provided for the Apps and cIOS downloads at all?
gonna keep indy just incase i buy another wii with 4.3
the guide took me about 1 hour because i read carefully and took my time
Just a quick question though, is my wii ready for me to copy my games to an external and run them off the HD?
All i gotta do is setup a Hard drive and install wiiflow?

thats the thing. It would be easier if you run through the whole guide as it covers mainly everything
have a look in my sig, there is linked a good guide for fat32 usb loading and explained in every detail what you need for that.
The #002 Error / or that what is causing it is built in into newer games and can be easily bypassed using a proper loader like cfg.
your loader was good in the old days (maybe ).
the guide is the best step by step tutorial one can give, wouldn't make much sense to suggest some "simple" updating on parts of your softmod as these steps aren't simple sometimes. sticking to the guide and ending up perfectly softmodded with a bunch of the best apps around is a good option for you. If you want to do it on your own, the links in my sig or in the basics & beyond can help you with that too. but again involves much more reading/understanding than just following this one.
good luck for what ever you decide (you can also try just to download the app pack from the guide and run cfg loader through hbc (has that error fix included) but it would be wise to do the rest as well, you get it i think )
have fun! (and don't be afraid of bricking, read carefully and do small steps, no need to uninstall something, just install stuff on top, your old loader channel can be removed in the wii settings ->channels, when done)
reading takes times, modding can be done in 20minutes if you like, its run an app, press A, wait..., switch app, press A, wait...
Thank you very very much for your help...time to get down to some reading and i will most defo let you know on how it went (give me 2 months hehe).
im new to all this can you please explain more, when playing indiana jones original how to 'choose the switch to option' and what is (two silhouetts, staggered, with an arrow pointing between them)
I won't be planning on using external HDs or USBs for running my games so that's why I asked.
Thanks again! and sorry for the trouble
