My modchip is supposed to be in stealth mode all the time and not detectable when doing game or system updates. This is why I was wondering if I need the PriiLoader. Do you still think I should install the PriiLoader and disable game updates?

    Thanks again!
    Like he said, if you're on 4.1 you should install it. There are hacks like block disc-based updates, and block online updates. Your mod chip will refuse to play ANY out of region game on 4.2 and that's essentially what you should avoid (whether you ever play'em or not).

    You'll need to give the exact text of the error, your attached files error out with "invalid attachment" message when trying to view them.

In your experience, should there even be an NTSC formatted partition? If so, what % of the full drive size would you use for the NTSC partition.
    I know Junk chimed in on this question, but did you review Gen3SF's tutorial about USB HD gaming (btw: it's NTFS as in NT File System; NTSC is a video standard, as is PAL)? Her tutorial/guide thread can be found here.

    When updating from 3.4U to 4.1, just for my understandings, will it become 4.1U or 4.1E?

    WILL I EVER UNBRICK? Please HELP!!!

    Hello everyone, I have a D2C with D2CKey installed and running 3.4U. Recently decided to follow softmod instructions, installed Bootmii as boot2, and installed the Homebrew Channel. Then I backed up my NAND as per step 2. Then I loaded the Wii system menu, and could see the Homebrew Channel. I could load and exit it, moved the channels from their original places and turned off the Wii.

    When turning on the console the Wiimotes lost their connections, and can't even turn on the console. Bootmi loads, but when selecting the Wii system menu I see a black screen. I spend the night reading all the threads I can find in the forum , my wife is mad at me as I go to bed late in the night, but I'm still so desperate I don't try restoring the NAND.

    Am I already fully bricked at this point? Should I simply go ahead and try restoring the NAND?

    Next day I buy a gamecube controller and am able to run Trucha Bug Restorer to load IOS36, downgrade IOS15 and load IOS15. But when I run cIOS38 r17 installer the gamecube controller also stops working. Is the Wiimote a must for this step? Or is there a version that works with the gamecube controller?

    After reboot I can load cIOS38, but it does not proceed. Is this the time to try restoring the NAND from the backup? Or should I try Inbuilt Recovery Mode, NAND flash or some other system update?

    I'm kind of lost after reading so many different threads in the forum and too unconfident to try anything else. What do you guys suggest?

    If you are on 3.1 you will have to update to 4.0 first, make sure you install the patched IOS60 first though still. Before you update to 4.1 make sure you have at least 250 blocks free or you will brick, install IOS60-patched first with Wad Manager using IOS249, then run Firmware Updater 4.1. If you are on 3.3 or 3.4 then you must update now - DO NOT install priiloader until you have updated as it will cause untold problems!.
    Hey guys! n00b here on these wonderful forums. So, I decided today that I'm going to try to softmod my new Wii. Yay!, right? Well, being a paranoid freak that I am, I set out to devour as much information and knowledge on the subject as I could, before I venture into my modding crusade. As I'm reading this TUT (which is wonderful by the way), I came across the statement above which kind of confused me. I understand about updating, but if you are on 3.3 or 3.4, do you update via the Firmware Updater?

    if you are on 3.2 or 4.0 you can update if you want and it is recommended that you do
    Also, do you use the Firmware Updater for these versions as well?

    Sorry for the n00b questions, I just want to cover my bases before I start. I did a search and turned up some information on the subject, but nothing directly relating to my inquiry.

    Thanks again!

    The safe firmware updater will intelligently update your Wii to 4.1 of whatever region your Wii is set to (ie 3.4U will become 4.1U)

    You definitely have a brick of some type, based on the above information. Being as you got BootMii to boot2, all is not lost. For recommendations or solutions relating to your problem, best to post in the Bricked Wii Section here to get knowledgable assistance on the issue. Once you get it fixed, you may elect to reattempt this tutorial/mod.

    You didn't identify your Wii version/region. Here's a quick layout: if you're @ 3.2 or 4.0, you can elect to stay there and the tutorial will work without requiring an update. If you're @ 3.1, the best course of action is to update to 4.0 first (a separate download linked in the tutorial) after applying IOS 60 patched. Once that is done, then you use the safe updater included in the main download package. It uses your wireless connection/internet to then update to 4.1. If your Wii is 3.3 or 3.4, you apply IOS 60 patched first and then run this same safe updater to get you to 4.1; the main reason this is recommended is Priiloader doesn't work on 3.1, 3.3, or 3.4 (no hacks). Plus with 4.1, you gain SDHC capability as well as Virtual Channel (VC) support.
