    Hi GBAtempers,

    I found this post : "Modify any Wii 4.2 & below, aka the simplistic mod" (

    I tried to follow it. I did 1st part (Update 4.2) : setup Homebrew ch & Bootmii, which went fine. Then 2nd part (Modify 4.2), but didn't work : When i choose the SD card from menu, Wii Freezes. I did it again and again : niet. I tried 1st part once again : I could only launch Homebrew ch. and install IOS packages. I couldn't do the setup from scratch (point on SD card from Wii menu). The SD card shows a "?" instead of the "boot.dol/elf"

    Now the situation is :
    - Wii upgraded to 4.2E (initially 3.3E)
    - Games work fine
    - Homebrew channel is available + Sd card icon on the homepage.
    - Part 2 is not installable.

    Could you pleaz help me or redirect my question to the appropriate forum ? I'd be very grateful.

    Did you use a fresh clean SD card?

    Clear the contents of your SD card, format it, and then copy the files from to the root of your SD card. Please do if you can, before modifying, make a NAND backup.
