    Help with wii update 4.2u to 4.3

    I have a first gen wii with a first gen modchip running on 4.2u. I want to play some of the new games that keeps asking me for an update. SOme scrubbed disks works...some don't. ANyway,
    Is it advisable to update to 4.3 and then run letterbomb?

    Is it possible to softmod the wii even with the modchip to run games off HD?

    Thanks for any help.

    If you wanted to softmods too, I wouldn't update to 4.3. Follow the softmod any Wii guide, and do the optional 4.1 install.

    This will bring your region free back to your hardmod, and you will have all your IOS updated to play new games.
    And with the priiloader install will block those pesky update messages.

    There is no conflict in having a hard and softmodded Wii.

    sorry to be a bother,

    I read through the softmod any wii guide provided in your useful link, but i don't specifically see any mention of the optional 4.1 install.
    Having read through it
    step 1: loads homebrew channel (using the bannerbomb v2 for my wii 4.2u)
    step2: loads your region free wii hack
    step3: loads priiloader

    so by going through steps 1,2,3 i should end up with System Menu 4.1 v544## as mentioned in the
    "Cios FAQ- What this mod installs"


    guide is easy to follow, but you got me confused with what sounds like needing downgrading to v4.1 first?

    Thanks,

    -GF

    Just follow the guide from the beginning after reading it a couple times. And don't skip anything.

    You will see when you install the modpack, there is a folder 4.1 system menu with 3 wads in it.

    So no don't downgrade first just follow the guide from start to finish. And don't skip any steps, even if it says it is optional.

    ah, i see it now for the 4.1 menu wads. It didnt specifically say it was optional, but did mention not having to do it.

    Last thing...you said not to skip any thing even if its optional. Part 2 optional region change. If im sticking to ntsc usa do i still need to do this?

    Thanks,

    I know I know... I was just unnerved by all the giant red warning signs in this section.

    Thanks for the quick reply!
