I'm tryong to make my friend's Wii run backup games
But there's a small problem!
it's 2.3 firmware, so he's wii doesn't recognise my SD Card!
I've tried with 3 kind of sd cards and it wont start with the "load boot.dol/elf" thing
Do I have to make it from 2.3 to 3.* firmware first?
and if so, how can I do it?
please help me help my friend
My Wii was already softmodded when I bought it, but all it had was two working USB loaders (NeoGamma r7 and USB Loader GX) , no Homebrew channel, no bootmii, etc. After finding WiiHacks a few months ago I spent some time reading through what I could understand and finally decided to follow ShadowSonic's guide for 4.2. However, I didn't follow it all the way: I'm pretty sure I did steps 1 and 2, but not so sure about the rest...I kept getting busier and busier and eventually I simply forgot about the Wii for a while. Now I finally have the time to follow through and finish the job, but I'm having a hard time picking up where I left off, partly because the Wii already had some modifications in it. Here's a Syscheck from when I stopped messing with the Wii:

If anyone could give me some insight as to which steps of the guide to do next and which ones to ignore, I would apreciate it
Also, I recently bought a game which contains a System Update. Is priiloader blocking it the only way to play this game? If so, I'd like to know whether I can install priiloader from the guide in my Wii as it is now.
If I'm correct all you need now is the SD card loaded with the correct files, and your HDD formatted to FAT32, which is the one suggested over WBFS but it is up to you, and I use WiiJManager. Hope it helps.
Hi all, i'm a newbie to this stuff, but will be a guru by early next year (haha). I bought my wii last Wednesday and had it modded by Thursday. It was working perfectly, but a BIG mistake was done. Dopmii (?) was deleted by mistake and changes were made right before. What do you all recommend i do? Would reinstalling everything from scratch be thr best option or using the backup? I have no clue how to load the backup. Thought i did until it said something about pressing xyab or something??? Well I was scrolling with the power button, so no xyab there lol
Quick question can I delete anything off my SD card after I have completed the soft mod process or can I upgrade to a larger card/ or use 2 different cards one for mod and one for game data and etc?? Thanks for the help...

Reinstalled everthing and all is working!!
Don't mean to be a pain but want to make sure i get EVERYTHING right.
1) Is the guide at the beginning now fully updated? I've read hundreds of posts, some of which people are saying this doesn't work or that doesn't work. Some are saying yes it works.
2) My Wii is a black model, 4.2E version. I think i updated it very early this year but cannot be 100% sure. Will this hinder the softmod in anyway if it was updated?
i followed it yesterday to mod my 4.2
