Wanted 2 say thanks again for this excellent guide! I've done it twice now, with SSBB and both Wii's work great! The only recommendation I have is to replace the WiiMC that comes in the AppPack with:
I was unable to get the WiiMC that came with the app pack to recognize the hdd or exit properly on both of the wii's I modded using this guide. To exit I had to hold down the power button for 5 seconds. I've installed WiiMC 1.04-WNC4.wad on a 4.1, 4.2, and two 4.3's, and it's never failed. It installs as a channel, it's not a forwarder, so you don't need a boot.dol I've never had any problems recognizing the hdd with it, and it exits by pressing the "home" button. If you guys ever wanted to use this one instead, send me a PM and I'll be glad to send it to you.
I went ahead and uploaded WiiMC 1.04-WNC4.wad because a user PMed me and requested it. Here is the link for anybody else who wants to use this version of WiiMC instead:
