    Question about pimp my Wii being not recommended?

    Hi,

    I'm kinda not new here since I've been here for a while but this is the first yime I started a thread since the thread I searched was closed. It might appear on my thread's title links to the closed topic. but not exactly:

    I kind of wanted to ask why pimp my wii is not recommended because:

    1. I wanted to get past "Baby's Cry" And right now I can't
    2. everything Igoogled said get pimp my wii to have it work.
    3. My Korean Wii runs perfectly fine using the 4.2u softmod guide that was posted I think last year.

    Since then I do not do updates, still on 4.2u, that time the guide still has a youtube video. When I read about getting pimp my wii to get past "Baby's Cry", I thought I might search it here at wiihacks, and found out that it isn't recommended. For any reasons however, I do not wish to "cross-mod" my Wii with any other apps rather than the recommended tutorial so I won't have problems.

    So how what do I need to do to get past "Baby's Cry". I already updated my hermes to the latest and i still get error just on this game so far.

    Thanks!

    Pimp my wii isnt really advised because it messes around with you ios' and if you do not know what you are doing with the program you could end up with a mess..
    Post a sys check in spoilers and we can go from there.

    Whatever you do, do not uninstall cIOSFail/DarkFail --- as a Korean Wii with 4.2U, you'll get Error #003 permanent brick. You chose to do this, now you're stuck with it. And we have a guide for Metroid: Other M (it'd have been nice if you named it, ya know?)

    It's not recommended because you can do silly things with it if you don't have an idea of what you are doing. Some things can be relatively harmless like patching all of your IOS while some can be more damaging like installing a stubbed system menu IOS over your current one. There are safer alternatives.

    I did wonder what o/p was referring to.
    I am putting it down to your version of hermes then....

    Hi,

    Sorry I read back my post above and realized I haven't mentioned the title Metroid other M. I ran a search and I did not find the guide though I remembered I read that once, and I think I have the pre-requisites, I used usbloader GX to load it.

    And about the CiosFail/DarkFail, uh I don't know if I have it on my Wii. When I bought my new Wii, I didn't know it was Korean, didn't even know it had versions (gasp), then I formattted my Wii using nintento settings then said it is on 3.2"u". After two weeks, I did not know it was system updated via wifi, i think it went to 4.0u from 3.2u, That's the only time I found out about wiihacks, then revive my Wii since I found out it had priiloader installed. Then time passes and I managed to ran 4.1u updated using the guide here, then the last major thing I did was to update it to 4.2u using the guide here. I never had serious problems since then. (no issue at all).

    About the System Check, I will do it after I get home from work and I will post the result.

    That would not have been one of our guides, none update you to 4.2

    I don't understand, I'm pretty sure I used the softmod guide to 4.2 here, the one with the youtube video, I still have some posts inside that thread. As a matter of fact, I don't update my Wii using other guides from other forums, I read a few other ways before from other forums but never tried them. I'll post the exact thread I used to update my Wii.
