    4.3u but a question about the SD card as well

    I read all the guides and realize now that I should never have updated my WII. I dont really use the thing so I finally thought hacking it would mean I would use it. I would say I have a high technical skill but have a few specific questions about the process.

    1. I should probably just wait for an official 4.3u hack?

    2. In the guides they say format using FAT but if you use the Panasonic tool the format they are using is FAT32. I think there is either a mistake in the guide or either way this is confusing since when you go to use the windows format tool there is a difference between FAT and FAT32.

    3. It says use an SD card. I have a mini SD card with an adapter. In windows it is recognized as an SD card. Should I just order an SD card or will my existing card work? I have many SDHC cards but the guide says that will not work.

    Thanks.

    Use FAT32 on your SD card
    The other FAT is actually FAT16 and all you need to know about that is its older and not as good as FAT32

    I was just unsure because it says 4.3 and mine is 4.3u... Slightly different but its better to ask and be safe.

    I understand there is a difference between fat and fat32 but the guide says fat and probably should be more specific. I realize I am new here but for noobs its confusing.

    The problem with guessing if the microsd will work or not is how would I know if the guide just wont work for me or if its my card? It doesnt seem to "boot" into the bootmii and I followed the guide so am I to assume that the maybe for me is a NO?

    Can I just rent one of those games and try that route?

    Thanks again.

    data base says There is a 100% chance the chipset is GC2-D3-2 (v2) with no drive chip.

    Is there any point in even trying to hack this one? I assume I would never be able to burn discs to it. Can you put games on an SD card?

    4.3u + 4.3e are all system menu 4.3 but from different regions U=US E=Europe
    The guide probably should say FAT32 I agree. But rest assured it is FAT32 that is being suggested
    The two games mentioned on the guide are necessary to load Homebrew and allow softmodding so yes you will have to acquire one of them
    And yes you can use either an SD card or External hard drive to play games (hard drive preferred - more size, more games)

    Dont get hung up on being the noob. we all started there once and we will always be more noobish than someone else and you should get the hang of this soon enough

    Maybe I will go rent one of those games and come back and try that route and if it works buy an external drive. I have a boatload of internal drives lol. I suppose you cant access a server off wifi...
