    Heya'll,

    Some games lately have been stopped working / stopped working properly on me.
    I have a 4.2E Wii, with BootMii IOS and Boot2. HBC, and a custom homebrew loader channel.
    Some Custom channels which I'd have to update. And still the Trucha IOS16.

    I want to start all over again, but keep my saves, friends etc.

    I eventually want to go to 4.3E, as Zelda SS will mostly likely use it, or eventually 4.4 (or 4.5/ 5.0). As I will be buying it unlike some around here, and there might be a AP to make it stop working on loaders, I need the latest IOS (80) too etc.

    So what are my options? ModMii seems to be outdated to me. (Edit: It seems to be updated to 4.7.1 Today.)

    Also, where can I find some nice forwarding custom channels. (For Gecko OS, Usb Loaders, Cheats, and might some other recommended tools?)

    And are there any hacks for 4.3E but that you won't be needing PreLoader/PriiLoader (To prevent Disc updates, Online updates, Skip warning screen, Region free etc..)

    Thanks in advance guys!

    P.S. I just backuped all of my backups on my HDD to my PC, and gonna format the Wii HDD.
    Should I remain using WBFS, or is there anything better now? (I doubt it..)

    I do want to use a Fat32 partition on the same HDD, for movies etc on PS3.
    (First Partition Fat32 and second should be WBFS, right?)

    game play is NOT wii system menu dependent...you should NOT want to go to 4.3...there's no reason to.

    just use Momii and re-hack...even before the 4.7.1 update, it was never outdated. 4.7.0 came out a week or so ago....

    as far as HDD goes...format to a single FAT32 partition. convert games from WBFS to .wbfs files....all games, movies, etc can then be on the same partition.

    i assume that since you backed-up your WiiHDD, the games are in .iso format on your PC...just Wii Backup Manager to reload them onto the newly formatted Fat32 HDD...it will automatically split them where necessary.

    I know, I was looking for other opinions about the 4.3. I know only the IOS's matter though.

    @ HDD, ain't splitting the games gonna be giving problems?
    And, can the games be scrubbed in IOS format, as they are all 4/8GB on my PC? While on WBFS they are scrubbed.

    And it seems I used the 4.6.1 version of ModMii. (Should just have used English instead of Dutch.)

    Edit:
    Any place to get some forwarding channels?

    Forwarder can usually be found on the official website for said Homebrew. I know for a fact that forwarders for SNES GX and VBA GX can be found on Homebrew browser.

    It's stupid to update past 4.1, you will only lose homebrew-related options.

    Why do you want to keep your games in ISO format when you could have them in .wbfs fromat?

    I will convert them to WBFS. oops
    Didn't read that part.

    And what difference does it make between 4.2 and 4.1?
    I understand 4.3 though.

    Nintendo told us 4.1 and 4.2 had disc read improvments. [​IMG]

    Nintendo lies.
    4.2 has no improvements, it just kills things like Bannerbomb 1, region free for modchips, installs stubs, overwrites bootmii as boot2 (if you have it), and bricks region changed Korean Wii's. 4.3 does the same thing, but more.

    4.1 was the last SM to offer any improvements.

    Okay, then I will downgrade to 4.1 again, I happen to have a Modchip, but I played Four Swords Japan backup with it, without problems, probably only for Wii games.

    downgrading gains you nothing back except bannerbomb
    the stubbed cios etc can and must be installed regardless

    And region free Wii games without Priiloader's (unstable) hack.
