    mauifrogs softmod any wii guide is what you need to use. Be sure to install priiloader to prevent this from happening again. You may want to check any other wiis you have modded and be sure they have priiloader as well.

    follow that or the 4.3 softmod guide
    you pretty much will just have to reinstall the cIOS's

    skellinator beat me to it...

    4.3 does not kill boot2 but if her nand backup was made before modding you will still have to redo all of it except HBC. Restoring the nand also resets all of the savegame files to whatever they were when the nand was copied. You have the game you need to mod 4.3 so I would say just go that route. If she has boot2 then make a new copy after modding too, it's nice to have!

    hi, we have a problem lol

    ok so got her wii,

    its a bloody usa import, we'll on system settings it say's 4.3u...

    all the channels have been removed, hbc, wad m, and wii flow,

    the problem is some how the disc drive is no longer working, it wont read ANY disc's at all either retail or other kinds......... just keeps saying unable to read disc, i'm wondering if its because its a usa wii, when it was updated to 4.3e it took regional hack off??? so it wont read UK discs???

    so i can't use the Indiana Jones or wheelie breaker exploit without running the game to get hbc back on,!!!!

    tried getting bootmi and priloader up usual ways without luck, so i got on phone and asked ???

    apparently bootmi and priloader were NEVER installed so cant go there, (wish i could meet the person who did this mod) so i could kill them slowly with s blunt spoon(blunt so it would hurt so much more). oh and NO NAND BACKUP either...

    is there any way to get hbc exploit back on without using of the wii drive???


    any1 have any idea were to go from here???

    to be honest i think she's fubared her wii anything other than shop titles but i need to know if i can do anything else for her,

    You have to use a disc to start the process on a virgin 4.3 wii.
    You'd have to have some other kind of softmod installed to load through that. i.e. bootmii, priiloader, a forwarder channel. Since none of the those are installed, I'd say you're out of luck.

    just checked in data settings it seems to have wii flow as a channel still,
    but its not on home page,
    other than buying a nstc disc is any way to see if the drive itself is fubar or > the 4.3e has messed up the regional hack, and i need a nstc Indiana
    apparently it was working before the update,
    and for some stupid beyond belief reason they updated a nstc wii with a pal disc, i don't think this will have helped matters much either!

    maybe it is on a different page, have you tried scrolling through all of the pages on home screen? It would be nice for you to scroll over and find it there as a forwarder channel.
