    Ok so i updated my wii to 4.3 a long time ago but i haven't done the update to the new wii shop.
    I found out that i have a loadmii 0.3 channel on my wii.
    So i put the hackmii installer 0.8 on my USB and tried loading boot.elf and bootmini.elf but they both just freeze after saying Format: ELF
    Oh but Boot.ELF freezes at a line after that, "loading section.text.0 0 0x Blah Blah Blah"
    I have tried even putting the 2 files to the root of the USB and turned off WiiConnect24
    Wow i really need help cause once i get homebrew i wanna get an external hard drive [​IMG]

    Your wii needs exploiting i'd imagine. Loadmii is an old app and I doubt it'll run without having a trucha bugged ios to run it from.

    Your first step is to get hold of an original Lego Indiana Jones. 4.3 needs it to exploit

    Sorry dude.
    Do what I did, buy lego indy off ebay, hack your wii and sell it on again. (A good tip here is, buy during the week at an auction that ends at a silly time. 5am is good, who is on ebay at 5am on a weekday? You get me, if you're on there at 6/7pm, so is EVERYBODY else. So buy at a stupid time, and then sell at a prime time.

    I did exactly the opposite and it ended up that it cost me a tenner in total. I bought for £47 and sold less than a week later for £37. £10 for hacking my wii. Totally worth it, a bit of hassle but you get there in the end

    I could probably get it from a video renting shop like video ezy.
    I'm gonna go try Dop-Mii to downgrade my system menu to 4.2 so i can just use banner bomb.

    I wouldn't and I've been messing with wiis since release day.
    Downgrading system menus is very dodgy if you don't know what you're doing 100% and you could end up with an expensive paperweight.

    Just be patient and do it the Indiana Pwns way, its a lot safer.

    Although renting it you'll be very lucky. Nintendo have taken most copies out of circulation (or it certainly appears that way). Obviously as they know it is the only way for pal users on 4.3 or one of the very few anyway.
    I was hunting game shops, second hand game shops, rental shop, even charity shops. Only place I ended up finding a copy was on ebay

    Yeah, saying you don't like it for games stopped working a good few years ago. I used to do it when I was about 13, buy em from eb, take it back upto 14 days later saying my pc wouldn't play em meanwhile its been copied.

    But then burners got popular, and now any media is pretty much not returnable as you could have copied it in minutes.

    But also, again, from what I said, nintendo have done their best to eliminate this game from their library. You won't find a new copy for sale anywhere.
    And Yu-gi-oh is pretty much the same story. Just checked ebay, there are now even some going on there for £100. Mental!
