    hi,

    My friend had an old wii and had updated to 4.3u through internet. His dvd drive does not work so there's no way to softmod his wii since dvd drive not working. Is there anyway to install hbc? This is what i plan to do. Install hbc and boot2 then downgrade to 4.2u since it does not require game disc to softmod 4.2u. Please guide me to where i can install hbc on 4.3u.

    thanks

    Replacing the disc drive appears to be this Wii's only option. If you have not softmodded it in the past, try sending it to Nintendo to get the drive repaired. If you have softmodded it in the past, boot2 might still be installed.
