    New at this, sorry for any disrespect.

    Like I said I am new at this, I was wondering if anyone can help with a few questions I have. I recently softmoded my 4.3 U (Red Wii) and was able to get the homebrew channel (usb loader).
    However I obviously screwed somewhere because I am unable to access the BootMii anymore, I was unable to downgrade and when loading the USB loader, I can the game in my HDD but when trying to load it the screen goes black.

    Can I try and perform the softmod over the one I installed?
    (I used the Indiana Jones games)
    What steps am I missing?
    Please if someone can help.

    thanks again for hearing me out.

    You can just re-follow the 4.3 tutorial. To access Bootmii you need to have a folder labelled "bootmii" on the root of your SD card with the files armboot.bin, bootmii.ini, and ppcboot.elf enclosed.

    Your Wii

    Clearly you want to know what is inside your Wii. Track down the Wii's serial No. (sticker on the console's back) and just find it out!

    If you got a DVD drive with one of the newer D3-v2 or D4 chips you won't be able to play any non retail wii or gc game disc (game backup or movie dvd). All black/red and recently bought Wiis will have one of those chips.
    You got one? Go for a softmodding USB loading route.

    Go to your wii settings menu and look in the upper right corner and find out which system menu version you currently got installed on your wii. On that you decide which softmod guide to use and hack your wii.

    Softmod Guides

    To initially softmod your Wii use one of the following softmod guides. Just choose the guide which you understand the most. If you want to start over and want to get rid of a previous installation, just install new things on top of old. There is no need to delete everything or virginizing your wii. Make sure you install Bootmii get a NAND backup. Install Priiloader and block disc and online updates.

    To load your game backups from a USB hard drive follow the:

    Modchip Users

    There is also a Wii Modchips Section.
