    I don't recall which version was on the Wii to begin with, but it was softmodded with TWP. I stumbled my way through it and made it work without really understanding the 'why' behind it.
    A couple of days ago we received Super Mario Galaxy 2 in the mail and my 5 year old accepted the update request when he started the game. Now it's on 4.2U. The HBC still appears but the Wii gator backup launcher no longer works. Do I need to redo the hack, or something else? Thanks guys.

    The Fur Side.
    Reinstall your cIOS. The update removed them and replaced them with stubs.

    I checked this out and it looks awesome. One question; since my Wii was hacked 'before' the update to 4.2U how do I properly answer the question "is your wii a virgin?"

    Your wii is a virgin. [​IMG]

    Just follow the guide as if you were softmodding a brand new Wii straight from the factory.

    Scanning errors:
    Code - 2 [The system cannot find the file specified]
    C:\Users\XXXXX\Downloads\wiihack\COPY_TO_SD\apps\HackMii_Installer\boot.elf

    I did the save download queue but still got the error. Suggestions?

    I really appreciate the help.

    u can just try downloading that one file by itself (from the batch download menu)

    that's odd that its not downloading, plz try it a few more times, it should be working

    if all else fails, u can just download the file directly from http://bootmii.org/download


    edit: there's nothing wrong with the program, it looks like the site hosting that file (http://bootmii.org/download) is temporarily down. Just try again later

    edit2: I just managed to download it using NUSAD, but I still can't access http://bootmii.org/download... so just keep trying, i'm sure it will be working by the morning for sure

    edit3: took a long time, but finally made it to the site, anyways, it should be working now, just try DLing it again
