Thread: Wii 4.2u Question

    Us Wii 4.2u Question

    Hey guys:

    I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!!! I know we are. This wii thing is addicting. I haven't gotten off the couch much over the past couple of days!!!

    Anyway, I would like to be able to use my backups of my games in my wii. I would also like to hook up a external usb hdd. I am going to run out and buy the Sandisk 2gb sd card now.

    I just got the wii. It currently has no hacks installed at all. It's version is 4.2u. I beleive that it was a lower version prior to this thread, but my boy connected the unit to the internet and ran an update.

    I guess I now have to use Messie's "Full hacking guide for 4.2 system menus". Is that correct??? Or is it possible to uninstall the update to the previous version and use Dogeggs guide? From what I've read there seems to be issues with version 4.2.

    Thanks and enjoy the rest of the holidays.

    That's what I would suggest. I run a system 4.2U and messie's guide is easy. I wouldn't worry about downgrading.

    It is harder to do the softmod on a 4.2, but at this point you have no chioce as it cannot be downgraded. Just use every precaution in the future to avoid letting the children run updates in the future. Try and use the parental controls so they cannot make changes to setting which may cause the update prompt to appear. and turn off wiiconnect24.

    Thanks for the quick responses guys!!! That's what I'll do. I'll make sure they can't mess with the updates again and I'll get started with Messie's guide.

    Thanks again
