Managed to install HB and browser on my 4.2E - also managed to download some games and install ok.
! problem found - system froze when game disc in unit and/or SD disk formatted as fat16 - everything went ok after removing disc and using fat32 on SD.
However I did not install bootmii as I still do not fully understand its function - maybe someone can explain in simple terms for me?
Meanwhile I will browse forum for my answers - tnx again.
Thanks folks for the details you supplied on this forum which allowed me to successfully softmod my Wii enabling both disc and usb attached devices to load copied games.
