I have softmodded an old wii before using bannerbomb. But now I have a 4.3e Wii and i don't wanna buy an original disc to softmod it. So I asked a modder and he said if I softmod it, I won't be able to play games online? I could easily play online on my 4.1u softmodded wii.

Nope. Gotta have an original disc unless you have some sort of software pre-installed. Such as priiloader, or the Homebrew Channel, even bootmii. Spend the extra 20 bucks and mod it, it's well worth the money to play your "Backups".
Also I play games online just fine. Just make sure you use Priiloader to block disc and online updates. And as Mauifrog states if you do downgrade your system to 4.1, it is a modified Menu, so it will brick your Wii if you update from Nintendo.

You can just hire the game from your local dvd rental store! Hardly expensive!
@nemesis532. Everything you say is true, except about maui's SM 4.1.
Maui's SM simply has it's version number maxed out so it's impossible
for it to be updated by Nintendo! The priiloader hacks are to stop the
Nintendo update stubbing your cIOS, thus killing your softmod!
Sorry if I sound picky, but I thought I should clear that up.

I have tried to scan through as much as possible to find an answer but cant.
I have a 4.3e wii that has an original Wiikey installed.
Can i use a pal backup of Indiana Jones to create the save file for the exploit or does it have to be an original?
Sorry if its been answered elsewhere but i have tried searching.

Yes, if you have a modchip installed you can use a backup.

I think there is a small error in the guide:
I tried to follow the "Update your Mauifrog softmod" guide, which tells me to load MMM from HBC after completing Chapter 2 & 3, but I guess that at the start of Chapter 3 when you format the SD card again you delete MMM.
At least the HBC menu only shows CfgUSBLoader, WiiMC, HomebrewBrowser and Savegame Manager.
Pressing Home and trying to load BootMii freezes my Wii.
I've retried the entire process 3 times now, so I'm pretty sure I followed all instructions correctly.
Should i maybe NOT format after step 2?
One other problem i have is that installing CfgUSB in PriiLoader and choosing to boot to installed file will NOT boot to CfgUSB, am i missing something here?
Endless gratitude to whoever helps me out here!

Mauis guide has been used by countless people, its about as flawless as anything can get.
You need to put the bootmii directory back on your card. If you followed the guide, you backed it up along with your nand backup.

If you've done this, post exactly what you've done and what happens and someone can certainly help you. I personally would recommend NOT booting directly to config until you've had a chance to play with it and understand whats going on.

Thanks, i still have all those backups somewhere, so i can probably make that work.
But in the defense of all people who follow instructions blindly without understanding them(ie. myself) it never said to copy those files in the"Update your Mauifrog softmod" guide.
I also just got the boot to CfgUSB to work, what i did at first was install "USBLoaderCFG.dol" like chapter 2 said, but after doing chapter 3 there also "Configurable USB Loader" in that list.
I don't understand why there's 2, but at least that new one works.

The dol is a forwarder. It needs something to forward to. Its like a shortcut in windows. It needs something to point to, which would be the files from step 3.

Ok, i just copied the backup of my bootmii folder back to an sd card, but there is still no MMM...
This is all pretty confusing to me.
Should i just start the update guide all over again and this time not format at the start of Chapter 3?
or maybe just do that mothballed channels part before chapter 3 instead of after it?
