A bit confused
Hi hope someone can help.
I have an 18 month old wii that I chipped straight away with a wasabi. Everything has been fine until recently when I stupidly updated from 3.2u to 3.4e using guitar hero 5. I thought it was just going to be an update for new instruments or something not a system menu update. Anyhow now my custom guitar hero discs won't work anymore or my mario kart. I had read about the trucha signed discs not working with 3.3 and 3.4 which is why I'd resisted the update for so long. Also because everything had just "worked" with the modchip solution I'd never installed any homebrew.
So I read Dogeggs guide, printed it out and set about trying to sort out my problems. The wii is at my girlfriends house with no internet connex so I knew I would not be able to do the firmware update or install priiloader, but I thought I would at least be able to sort the trucha bug thing out, and maybe get new super mario working from disc. I followed the guide right up to step 5a, omitted 5b and 5c. Obviously I didn't do step 4 the firmware update. Everything went on without any errors, well HBC was upside down but that was sorted with a reinstall. But it hasn't made any difference. My custom guitar heros still can't be read so the trucha bug restorer hasn't worked, and I have no neogamma channel after installing it as a wad. I can run it from an sd card by putting the neogamma boot.dol in the root. But it will not launch any backup games from DVD, even ones that still work under the wasabi. It always comes up with an error but I can't read it because it's under some other writing.
Can anyone tell me what is wrong and tell me what to do to sort it?
Should I bring the wii here and finish off the guide by installing 4.1 and then priiloader and the system hacks? Or?
Sorry for the long post!

If you are starting from scratch, new 3.1-4.1 written by Dogeggs
If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs
Don’t update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie
2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.
I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.
