Thanks for the great help, now i finally have my wii updated to 4.1u safely and have hbc 1.0.6 and have priiloader installed.
one funny thing that i notice is that though i have bootmii installed, once i launch it, my wiimote died and could not control the menu. did i miss out anything?
I had also updated my shopping channel to 4.2u and internet channel ntsc-u but i could not load my shopping channel and when i start opera, once i click on www, it would hang.. i saw the update was done properly. did i miss out any cios?
THANK you syphillis, lovely name! Glad I can play mario bros now, awesome game!
