    No, go to the Tutorials forum and do it yourself.

    Check the firmware, If it was by internet it'd be 4.2, if it was a disc not sure, Find out what your firmware is.

    Most likely 4.2, use one of the guides by messie or shadowsonic (they are both linked on the 1st page)

    and redo the hacking!

    Trekster i read your terminology glossary, but the firmware stops at 3.4 mine is 4.2 (out of the box). Was wondering if this is because you suggest people still to this day downgrade to 3.2 or if you just hadn't updated it in awhile.

    Edit i appologize for asking a moderator a question. I've since read the rules and the 4.2 setup page. I'll read 10 pages for every question i even think of asking in the future thanks and sorry again.

    No it doesnn't. That's how far things had reached when that particular part was written. If you are 4.2 out of the box then downgrading will brick your Wii.

    Trekster isn't a Mod, so don't worry. Unless you PMed a Mod of course, then it's down to the Mod on what they do.

    I know that this is answered some where in these fourms, but I can't find it.

    I had my wii softmoded by someone else as I didn't know how to and still scared to try to load any thing much, I did put the Homebrew Browser on the SD card under the apps folder, it's like this ( apps/homebrew_browser ) on the SD card, not installed on the wii it's self, but the homebrew channel is installed, but it will not load the hard drive that my friend let me barrow from him yesterday, when I load the homebrew browser from the homebrew channel it says, ( USB Device unable to be mounted ) can anyone tell me what I have to do to get to play the games from the USB Hard Drive?
    it works fine on his with an USB loader but I'm not sure what one to try to install or use as I'm not sure what soft mod was used on this wii, I know it was upgraded to 4.2 and softmodded and has a wad installer and preloader on it.
    One other thing too, I can't get a DVD to play with any thing I download with the Homebrew Browser, anyone have any idea what is wrong here? Does this stuff have to be installed on the wii it's self or just the SD card as I have it?
    That's all I know and I need help badly!

    Thanks a million in advance.
    Sorry that I have ask some thing that I know the answer is to some where but I can't find it.
    Thanks to all you people that have made the wii world a lot better!!!
