    Question Newbie needs help

    As you all can tell im a newbie. And this newbie needs help. I following this softmodding guide
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    and everything has turned out fine. I used smash stack on my 4.3u wii and sucesfully added hbc to it, prii loader etc. whatever the tut told me to do. Like adding all wads sucessfully but.. i have questions

    first

    why is my wii system menu showing me now 4.1u when before the softmod i was 4.3 does that mean im 4.1 now?? or does that not affect my actual system menu version or did i mess up in the tut since my wii is running fine i have been playing emulators, homebrew etc. also next question

    second

    I dont have a usb hardrive( the big usb one) but i do have a small usb flash stick will that work for playing backed up wii games? its about 8 gb. and if it does work can somebody actually link me to the application which lets me play via the usb stick. very much appreciated also one final question is since im on supposedly 4.1 but was originally 4.3 before the hack can i use sdcard/usb loader to play backed up wii games? I am sorry but i am a newb this is all and also if anyone can tell me if i CAN download and play wii games off an sd card or a tutorial please be free to

    what do you mean download wii games off an sdcard/usb ? if you mean rip your original games to the sd/usb yes through your loader that you use to play your backups

    1st - Yes, the guide lets you downgrade to 4.1, in which you did, so you are fine.
    2nd - Yes, a thumb drive usually works just fine for playing games, read the guide HERE for setting up thumb drive/hdd

    You really should read the guide properly before doing it Part of the guide that is optional is the downgrade to 4.1, that is where you are now, ans that is where you want to be.

    you can load from ANY compatible usb device, instructions here: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...g-playing.html

    As for downloading games, that would be illegal, immoral, and against forum rules.

    So does that mean im officially now 4.1?
    Also can u tell me if this is possible?

    place wii iso-format sd card-then put wii iso on sd card- then insert to wii- use cfg loader to play it by switching option to using sd card as drive rather than usb drive..

    is this wrong ^? if it is can someone explain in there post im sorry ...

    correct, and downloading games you do not own is piracy AND against WiiHacks rules, so watch what you say

    Use the forum search function, it works very well to be honest, thread closed.
