    Dear mauifrog,

    Thank You very much for the comprehensive and yet easy to follow guide!
    Just finished installing to 4.2E, everything worked like a charm.

    Well done!

    I followed the failtube video to mod mi wii menu vers.4.3u and used the ssbb trick to install homebrew, and went on to install 19 wads, and then chose not to downgrade because i thought my wii should have been disconnected from the internet completely, and then i tried to install the priiloader. All seemed fine until it got to a screen that is like smeared script. its just a bunch of code impostering white lines jibberich, so i thought i bricked.
    I tried to turn off my wii and power back on, but every time i did it tried to resume finishing the priiloader installation process automatically and would just eventually get to this deathly screen. so i powered off, removed my sd card and powered back on...It seems fine now, plays discs still but now has the homebrew channel, the usb loader gx channel, the neogama channel, and 1 other chanel. All I want to do is use the usb loader gx channel but i'm afraid to put the sd card back in! I never attempted to use any of the channels except i started the usb loader gx without a harddrive or the sd card hooked up(because i was nervous)and it just loaded back to the wii menu eventually.
    I was told that I should restart the entire process from the beginning of your guide, and to just reformat my sd card. I never deleted any thing from the sd card yet or my wii and it is still completely offline. i was told not to delete the homebrew channel from my wii and to just restart thr entire process from the beginning of your guide. and that doing it over thru your guide will rewrite any poor mistakes failtube made.Please be a hero and tell me if this is the best option or if this is a bad idea, or if theres any thing else i need to do jus to be able to use the usb loader gx . THANK YOU FOR READING

    so do you think all i need to do is have my sd card reformatted with this app pack on it and then i can just go ahead and use the usb loader gx, because i was told i should go thru this entire guide from start to finish now except for darkcorp. however i do have the homebrew channel and usb loader gx channel on my wii menu so if i reformatted the sd with maufrogs app pack can i go ahead and use the usb loader gx?
    PM sent in answer to your question as I said I didn't bother watching you failtube video lol. Just follow guide to the letter and and you should be good. Failtube videos always skip important steps or dont cover specific thing. You have found wiihacks now that has a mountain of helpful tutorials and lots of support from members and mods...

    Edit.... I was just interested so did I watch the video ... 10 mins of my life wasted lol.. As I said steps missed. The only worth while part of that video was watching his demented dance at the end......

    Hi, this is for mauifrog or anyone who has clear knowledge of This;

    I am playing NTSC gamecube backups on my Wii using Wiigator, installed using this 4.3 guide. The problem is some of the games play with Borders to the left & right but I want them to play fullscreen. Someone I Spoke to on another thread said they got full screen for their out of region retail games by replacing the custom MIOS with the official MIOS and using the gecko launcher but I want to use backups and I strongly suspect that replacing the custom MIOS will remove my ability to do that. I tried using the gecko os launcher but it just launched me into Wiigator which isn't fullscreen. Is there another way to do this?

    Cheers, Andy

    Wait, so I spend time answering all of your questions via several PMs, and now you are asking people if I have bad ideas? I admit that I don't know the most about softmodding (else I would own this site ), but I don't think I am a beginner at this. Since I joined this site I have learned quite a bit.

    rescued my wii

    I thought i wrecked my wii but i applied an update from 4.1 soft mod to 4.3 official firmware and then used the yugioh owned 60 hz hack and worked a charm. Thanx a million for your hard work so noobs like me can profit aswell.

    What went wrong in the first place? I don't know ........ i'm a noob, but this is what i did ( on the same day )
    1 wanted to play call of duty black ops but couldn't get it to run via config usb loader
    2 read that it required ios 250 when all i've seen in my wii for years is ios249 so i did a wad ios 250 via wadmanager
    3 imeediately the hbc went into update and wouldn't work afterwards, also my config usb loader didn't work anymore
    4 removed hbc and config and tried to reinstall via bootmii but bootmii wouldn't start up
    5 updated from 4.1e to 4.3e via systemupdate ( i first had a wiikey 2nd gen, then softmodded my wii via bannerbomb method rev38 ios 249 & used pimp my wii to complete missing stubs)

    i never had problems with anything untill call of duty black ops! well not reading properly what i was doing. i was able to apply the yugioh owned 60hz hack with a burnt copy of the game! installed wiiflow and got everything working, even call of duty black ops!!!!
    Thanx a million again

    Is this the new way we should do this?

    I'm trying to follow this thread http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    And for the bottom part how can I add both Mod-pack and update-pack to the same sd it say do you want to replace the folder wad cause its named the same? and how do I run a md5summers.exe on a mac? and do I have to verify sums? I don't get it not sure how to perform that on a mac
    or can i just extract everything to the sd card another question do I use another sd card or use the same and keep the homebrew/bootmi and add it all together.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.


    ModPack-AnyWii.zip, mirror AndUpdatePack.zip , mirror
    this file has a password, it is found above; at the beginning, and below; at the end.
    (4.2/4.3+ wiis can skip UpdatePack.zip)
    If you plan to region change your wii, download 4.1-region_change.zip and verify the check sum.
    Extract to sd:\
    Requires a standard SD card, 1-2g scandisk is best. SDHC cards will not work.
    Run sd:\md5summer.exe
    Click "Verify Sums", Select "ModPack-AnyWii.md5"
    All check sums should verify without error (very important)
    Click "Verify Sums" again, Select "UpdatePack.md5"

    I only had to watch the beginning, for a reason I am not proud of .

    Once upon a time I was a complete newbie (and didn't know I had scoliosis). I had a skip in my step and a pocket full of dreams. I ventured to lands near and far, until my travels brought me to a land called "Failtube" where sunshine and flash ads never ended.

    One day I stumbled upon a guide for USB loaders. For a moment, caution stopped me, for not all the video comments were positive, and that some had reported damaged Wii's. However, when I saw the name "Hacking Modding Nerd" I immediately dismissed them, for surely nobody would choose such a name unless he was an expert. And so I began my quest of turning my "just-barely deflowered Wii" into a "whore among whores" by installing channels and IOS's from the download pack. I followed the instructions perfectly, and watched the video several times to make sure I didn't stray from the expert's path.

    However, it came to pass that before completing the final step, my Wii froze and I had to unplug it. Unfortunately, I was unable to enter the System Menu. I fell to my knees and let out a long resounding "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" The flash ads remained, but the sunshine was replaced by rainclouds. And so I wept . HMN had betrayed me.

    Okay, so maybe I didn't cry, but I was a bit bummed out. It was also a sunny day. Take away the drama, and it is all true. Fortunately I had a bootmii backup with boot2, so I restored my Wii to it's former "just-barely deflowered" state and learned never to trust youtube. Btw, did you notice comments were disabled on that 4.3 guide?

    i just started trying to attempt soft modding my 4.3 wii


    Option 1- Indiana PWNS - Works with 4.3u/e
    -Play Lego Indiana Jones Original. Start a new game, then exit to System Menu.
    -Go to wii settings, data management, save games, wii, SD
    -Click SD, copy Indiana PWNS for your region
    -Play Lego Indiana Jones original, load save game slot 1

    I formatted my SD card to FAT32 put hackmii on it plugged it into the wii but when I go to data management/ save games/ wii/ sd and it says "The device inserted in the SD Card Slot can't be used." Any help? I'm using a 2GB Lexar SD card HELP PLEASE

    BTW the SD card is set up SD>hackmii_0 and in there is boot.elf bootmini.elf and a folder named private containing wii which contains app and title folders etc etc.

    I'm using a Mac if it makes a difference.
