    I'm going to be modding my friend's Wii and his Wii is probably not updated a lot, so i will probably have to update it via online update to whatever the latest version is, is 4.3U the latest online update version?

    Yes and no.

    4.3 has 2 kinds of updates.

    1: The version number update wich displays 4.3
    2: The Korean IOS update wich only updates certain IOSses and still displays 4.3

    In all it doesn't matter wich system menu version you use.
    You can use LetterBomb to hack it.
    Just never downgrade and if the Wii is newer then ending of 2009 or any colour BUT white you'll be tied to using a harddrive for backup gaming.

    Ah thats good

    Might be easier for me to just use the online update to Update it, mainly because i still have the 4.3U files on my SDHC card when i modded my Wii, so i wouldn't really have to put any new files on it to mod his WIi i don't think

    Assuming yours was a virgin one like his everything should be compatible except the letterbomb exploit that you already know isn't.

    Ah thats good, just wanted to make sure that the US Wii doesn't have a different 4.3 version that was updated recently or in the past.

    Just installed everything on my Friends Wii, i put neogamma on the SD card, used Wiigater to make IOS249 run Gamecube games, here is my question, what happens if i put the SD card in my Wii since i didn't patch the IOS 249 on my Wii, would it fuck up or could i use all those files to patch mine for gamecube backups?

    I'm not understanding well (the ios249 patching part because it doesn't need any patching and less it to be used to play GC games)....I think you mean you patched your MIOS to run your GC games through you disc drive (you can't run GC games through your usb HDD). If that so then if you don't patch your mios (on your Wii) the GC games won't load.

    Anytime I hack someone's wii for them I start from scratch. That way I don't miss anything I might over look.
    Not saying you have to. But, it seems to help me.
