Great thread it worked for my new 4.3 thanks alot .... suggestion I wouldnt add all them loaders as most people dont know what to do with them ... and some like me use a usb hdd and not the sd but this is a great guide and was the easiest mod ever.
Thanks for the straight forward guide mauifrog. I bricked my original Wii last year by using a random guide off the net. I finally bought a second hand Wii yesterday and within 30 minutes i was playing my games again. A big thanks.
Also, is Darkcorp neccessary? My backups seem to play when loaded from the Wii Disk channel without installing Darkcorp. I'm guessing not all backups would work this way so should i install Darkcorp for future use?

During my nand backup I came up with 5 bad blocks, is this ok or normal?
Yes, I think you can have up to 80 or 90 something before it is an issue. Never seen a nand that didnt have at least a couple.
My little brother updated our Wii to 4.3U earlier tonight (d'oh!). I previously had HBC and NeoGamma installed, and everything was happily soft-modded. Can I follow this guide, or will it not work because I've previously soft-modded (wondering if there's any IOS files or anything that might still be lurking from previous soft-mod, that could cause problems)? Thanks!
I have seen upto 7 blocks to be normal .... it is comon to see 3-7 of them
Re the Nand backup I got 4 bad sectors but then during verify 3 were removed from the screen and only 1 black dot was left and it stated that verify failed, then verify failure just for that block. Also got 2 uncorrectable pages 212884 & 212885. Is this a good backup? Ran it twice & verified, got the same bad sectors and uncorrectable pages.
