    Just want to clarify what to install

    I've checked my Wii and it has 4.3e installed so according to the Softmod any wii Guide i need to do the following

    Launch HackMii Installer using Letterbomb 4.3 (no game req'd) i can get the mac address
    Install Homebrew channel and bootmi(i assume this come from letterbomb 4.3?) on the WII by putting the SD card in the Wii?
    Make a NAND Backup
    Download Modpack and CIOS PAck to SD Card
    verify sums
    then follow guide from WAD Installs onwards to the final step and then install Add Pack zip

    If I've done all that my last question is regarding playing games, if i have them saved in a folder on a HDD(plugged into a USB can i play them directly from that? the HDD also contains other media like films / music etc as it is used by the whole family or do i need a dedicated HDD?

    Sorry this has probably been asked before but there is so much info out there!

    You should have posted this in said guide....

    Yes you can usb load games and yes you can load other things onto the same HDD that you have games on. Your HDD needs to be set up properly though and the partition with the games needs to be active and primary. there is a fat32 guide in my sig that will help
