After softmodding my 4.3 Wii using this guide, I am now able to run Homebrew and backup game images (using WiiFlow) with an external HDD formatted as FAT32.
However, when I try to play my original copy of GoldenEye, it tells me that I need to update first.
Since everything I read tells me that I should NOT update once softmodded, how can I now play GoldenEye ?
i modded my 4.2 and everything was working fine but my daughter updated to 4.3u so now im trying to follow the guide to mod it again. i have homebrew installed again no problem but when i get to the step of wad manager to install wads every time it says 24 completed sucessfully and 24 did not complete anyone know what the problem is ? and yes i tried both methods on the guide.
i dont understad the NAND backup part....what do you mean by "power power power reset reset" ?
I've hacked my 4.3u Wii with this guide and I'm very happy with it.
I have two quick questions.
How could I make a channel that loads a game directly from the USB CFG LOADER? I want to put the channels on the SD card if it's possible, I don't want to risk bricking the wii putting the channels on it directly.
Also, I've tried to run backup games from a DVD-R disc and they won't run, any advice? I do burn at low speed and my Wii was made in 2006, so.. it should be Evil Chip free.
Hi mauifrog - thanks SO much for such a well written and organized guide. It was nice when a few of us with different system menu versions got together and we could all follow the exact same guide.
I have a question I was hoping you could answer - every game I own plays fine through Cfg USB Loader with the exception of Scrabble Interactive 2009.
In a post by davepm (10-04-2009 5:32) he posts in the "Which IOS Games Use To Run" thread:
In your guide, you state the following is used:
IOS53 (rev 5406+): No Patches
Will I have to downgrade in order to play this game, and if so, I suppose that means I might not be able to play certain other games until I revert back?
Which WAD did I install (by following your guide) that modifies IOS53? (excuse me if I'm phrasing that incorrectly)
Thanks again for the great guide!!!
I have recently bought a Wii and have allowed it to update to v 4.3E. I didn't apply any softmods prior to the update process. Is that what you refer to when you speak of a virgin 4.3 Wii? (I'm hoping it means a Wii that has 4.3 pre-installed on it )
If it does, I presume that the only way for me to softmod is to reverse the update. I have read that this is not recommendable, but is it at all possible?
