    Wiikey2, 4.2U and external USB drives

    When I mindlessly told my soldered Wiikey2 Wii to accept an update recently, I lost Homebrew and the ability to access my external WBFS USB drive.

    Backups work fine, but I can't figure out how to get the USB drive back online.

    I essentially went through the motions of doing the traditional soft mod to initially install HBC and USB Drive, but that isn't working for me now and I'm not understanding why.

    Would someone mind lending a moment to a polite moron like me and explaining what I can do to get the USB drive working?

    Um, you do realize you're talking two different things, right? Hardmods (other than WODE or Sunkey) don't support HD --- that is a softmod. 4.2 takes out your ability to do softmod/HD. You'll need to do either Shadow Sonic's or Messie's 4.2 softmodding guide. You've also ended your hardmod's ability to play out of region games with 4.2 (though they will work with softmod loaders).
