Time to do the 4.3 softmod guide (and for the love of god, install Priiloader).
4.3 started to be updated on my wii and i tried to stop it and i'm not sure if its all the way done bc i shut it off in the middle.now homebrew is gone and the usb loader won't work but its still telling me i need to update but in the menu it says it has 4.3 on it now.i'm confused by this should i go back and finish installing and then follow the 4.3 hack or leave it and do something else. i still have my dr mario and tetris on my main menu and don't want to mess it all the way up. any info will be helpfull thank you
Seems like while the system menu got updated, some parts didn't (like new channels). Go back and allow it to finish the update then softmod your 4.3 Wii using;
instead of dropping in and out of the chat you could have actually asked there we are all in the #wiihacks channel look for that Tab if you are using the chat button from the bar above.
interrupting an update is never good. but that the hbc is gone it settings already show 4.3 you are likely on 4.3 even some IOS maybe missing / got corrupted.
I suggest to follow the Softmod 4.3 Wiis guide you already found. your wiiware/channel things won't be affected either by disc update or now using the guide (same with savedata).
make sure to get priiloader/bootmii, just do the whole guide step by step.
maybe say Hello in the introduction section as well if you get time.
good luck modding your wii
Thank you i now have a priiloader on my sd card and will put it on there now just in case the kids do this again thanks again
it wont help to just have the program on the sd card, you need to install it to your wii, for this you will need the homebrewchannel, for this you have to follow the softmod guide, you don't need to gather all the files mentioned now. the guide covers all that, just do it step by step, it will tell you "Download that pack" "run that program" "install priiloader" in the end you have a working wii again.
good luck again
i did this too by mistake can u reinstall homebrew channel without doing all this?
"all this" is what exactly? using the game exploit?
if you don't see a hbc right now, or have priiloader or bootmii installed you need to perfom the first steps again, run the hackmii installer with the gameexploit, yes.
