    SD Formatter Panasonic

    Same issue as the other formatter....it does FAT not FAT32. I'm not seeing an option to do FAT32

    For the Panasonic util, unfortunately that's true (limitation). Still, it was good that you tried. I do recall that some old Wiis have issue/trouble with the SD card slots --- not sure the causation. You could always try to update to 4.1 via say New Super Mario Brothers from your region (it'll get you to 4.1). You could then retry the card, to see if any differing results.

    to summarize.... Wii 3.3U softmod has not run the boot.dol command even after using all 5 options for the SD card pack. I've tried to format with the SD formatter, but it doesn't have a FAT32 option. This SD card works in my 4.1 Wii. So I will try to update with the SuperMario Game Disk to 4.1 and then retry the "Mod any Wii" by Mauifrog. I'll keep you updated. Is there ANY benefit to having 3.3 over 4.1?

    Not at all. 4.1 is the preferred system menu. Whenever I come across a wii that is below that I always use a disc to update to 4.1 prior to modding, it just makes things easier IMO.

    Hi,

    Just got a Wii today with V3.0. Wasted the day trying different "private" folders and different SD cards. Did upgrading to 4.1 solve the problem?

    Thanks.

    If you have a game disc with the 4.1 update on it I would go that route. It makes the whole mod process a lot easier IMO.

    Does it allow reading of boot.dol from the SD card?

    I did, and just like the OP here, it did not work. This is why I am reluctant to update to 4.1 in case it still does not work.
