IOS Update will not update your system menu! If you hacked on 4.1U it will still remain on 4.1U. In fact, 4.1 is the recommended system menu as it allows region free. Anyway, your Wii is fine, so do not worry.
I went to this thread...
Went to Step 2 and downloaded ModPack and IOS Update, did MD5 checksums and checked ok.
Put these on the SD Card and booted into BootMii through the homebrew channel.
I already have GX loader and everything installed that I want installed.... I just wanted to update the firmware to 4.3 So I can play newer games that require the update.
I booted into BootMii and opened the IOS Update folder and installed the 25 WADS. I followed the instructions from that thread.
"""""If updating your IOS, Select "IOS-Update" -Press A[/SIZE]
Press (1) to "Install all Wads" - Press A
25 wads should install without error
Be sure all 25 wads install, kinda important
IOS are only used by channels and discs loaded from the disc channel. """"""
After I did this I exited BootMii and went back to the dashboard.
Restarted the Wii and went to check the firmware version and it still shows 4.1U. Shouldn't it show 4.3?
The reason I went along with this update is my girlfriend bought The Last Story and it wouldn't boot into the game off the disc.
I do have PriLoader installed with disc and system updates disabled, would this block the wad install and update?
Anyways I went to check the firmware version again still showing 4.1U but I said heck with it booted into GX Loader and installed The Last Story to the HDD.
After doing this I updated the covers and whatnot and booted into the game off the HDD through GX Loader without issues?!. Didn't go to a black screen and freeze the wii.
So my question is... It's showing 4.1U but is it actually at 4.3 and just doesn't show the correct version?? Or do I need to update so other WADS? If so could someone point me in the right direction.
I hacked this thing 4 years ago with bomber hack and had everything running fine until The Last Story wouldn't boot off the disc. So I thought I probably needed to update the firmware.
I figured maybe I missed something but all 29 wads installed, firmware still showing 4.1U and now The Last Story will run off the HDD after installing it.
I'm confused and need some guidance.
Thanks to anyone that posts to this and helps out! Thank you and I really appreciate your help.
I just wasn't sure if there was a difference between the system menu and the wads I installed. I was expecting 4.3 to show. So basically it installed the necessary updates from 4.3 but kept 4.1 system menu? Trying to understand what I actually did. If it's updated to play all the games out there now without issues then I'll go ahead and do a new nand backup and be done with it.
Wasn't sure if there were any other wads I should install the insure I can play all the games out there right now... Or did I just do that with the IOS update?
Yes.So basically it installed the necessary updates from 4.3 but kept 4.1 system menu?
Yep, that's exactly what you need to do.If it's updated to play all the games out there now without issues then I'll go ahead and do a new nand backup and be done with it.
Nope, that's all you need to install. You'll be fine with loading most of the games. If you do have problems with some, check out the list of Problematic games thread (search for it)Wasn't sure if there were any other wads I should install the insure I can play all the games out there right now... Or did I just do that with the IOS update?
Awesome. Thank you for your info and explanations!
Have a great day!
