Something screwy with the USB port on that wii I guess, assuming mod is good. Install the cios pack from the any wii guide linked in my Sig if you haven't already. If it still does same thing I would guess hardware issue on that wii.
Sent from my ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T using WiiHacks
Here's the thing:
I've tested the Wii in my place (connected the console with my cables) and everything was perfect.
However, when I sent it back to my brother's house it crashed again...
As I assumed it was a electrical problem I suggest him to connect the Wii in other place/TV.
When he changed from his old CRT to his new LCD it took longer to crash.
So the problem is with the power supply or with older TV's (as I experienced same problem at my parents old TV).
I think this week I can lend him my power supply as I'm suspecting it's a problem with his AC adapter.
I'm having the exact same issue with games freezing sometimes at the very beginning, other times running some songs(my kid loves the Just Dance series) before freezing again.
I've updated my Wii with the latest softmod (as suggested here in this thread also) but sadly the problem persists.
PolluxPT are both Wii's connected the same way to the TV (component, composite or hdmi)?
I recently changed from the out-of-the-box composite cable to a component cable. Guess I should try the original cable....
How do you typically connect your Wii, via HDMI or some other way?
I connect with original cable (composite, White-red-yellow) but my brother uses his scart adapter. However it does the same with both methods.
Could it be the USB cable connecting the HDD?
In my case I suspect it's a AC adapter problem.
I've had the same exact issues.
I have the same exact issue that you do. I Hacked a wii for my girlfriend and for my uncle at the same time the same way that I hacked mine but for some reason every time I try and load a game via usb on either wii's they freeze. Sometimes not at the beginning. Sometimes it loads a game and plays for a few minutes before freezing. Ive been racking my brain and searching the internet everywhere for a reason for this. This is the first time Ive come across someone with my exact issue. Please if you figure out what the issue is report back to here to help me out. Thanks
I too am having freezing problems on my wii 4.3 u . I start a game like mario kart and as soon as the race takes off it freezes. That's only when I use the hacks. I have tried everything and still don't know what else to do. Also if I try and load bootmii that freezes up my wii completely before anything is loaded. I've tried loading the game and cheats through Gecko it still freezes...I tried loading game and cheats through ocarina and still freezes. I have searched and searched and still no solution. If anyone can help I'd appreciate it very much so!!!!!
I am using it as personal use only and not online! I just went back into my system and now my system says it's a 4.1u when actually it's a blue 4.3 u ...so now i am really confused

Using cheats is an imperfect science. Someone has gone in and reverse engineered the running code and changed something to affect certain behaviors. This is based on the resources of the developer in question; and may not work for everyone depending on many factors.
If you're using them for online play, you'll not get any support here as we support FAIR online play.
For bootmii, trying to load bootmii (assuming you're using bootmii as IOS) requires a prepared SD card with the bootmii files on it to launch, or it will in fact blackscreen.

Yesterday evening I tried a different HDD and a different USB cable, basically trying the less-than-adequate current for the HDD approach.
I managed to play 4 songs of Just Dance without freezing but this needs one final test: my kids! :-)
Will let you know tonight if this change of HDD did solve the issue.
EDIT: Like I said I had my 2 kids playing non-stop Just Dance 4, Just Dance Disney and Mario 9 with the new HDD and my wii behaved nicely. No crashes at all. I guess the problem comes, like PolluxPT mentioned, from a deficient power supply to the external HDD. This being the case then a 3,5" powered HDD or a USB cable with an extra connector for extra power might do the trick.
