    I have a 4.2U softmod Wii and I bought Mario galaxy 2. Since I already had 4.2U as my update I just put the disc in and let it's update run. I thought it wouldn't do anything since I was already at 4.2. Yet, when ever i try to use my usb loader it freezes on the starting screen. This also happens with anything in the Homebrew channel. It loads the programs, then the controller shuts off and refuse to work.Leaving me with the only option of shutting off the Wii.
    I assume galaxy 2's update is at fault. Does anybody have any idea what I should do? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Why did you let the update run even though it was technically already installed? What you did now was technically uninstall the softmod and install the official firmware. You should be able to reverse this by softmodding it again though.

    To get technical, those updates include "stub IOSes", which are used to overwrite IOS versions not supported by Nintendo with ones unable to run anything to prohibit their use in exploits. And homebrew IOSes definitely qualify, especially if their only purpose is running copies of their games without their permission.

    Just rehack your wii, but this time install priiloader and enable the "disable disc updates" hack.
