    I'm using WAD manager 1.7 by Waninkoko and am currently on Wii Menu 4.0U. I'm trying to upgrade my system menu to 4.3U using the WAD downloaded from the ModMii windows program. I tried googling the error but nothing came up. Help?

    Is your wii hacked? Use the ModMii wizard to download everything you need to update you system menu.

    First thing never update system menu if not needed. Second if you already use modmii then make a full hack and not a single thing if you are not fully sure what you do.

    As mentioned 4.3 is not needed, if you still want to update make sure you have IOS 80 installed or you will brick (since you only mentioned the System Menu wad).

    Your wii may already be hacked but it's best to use modmii to completely remod it if you unsure and it will make sure everything is up to date, and will probably avoid this error.

    If you use the ModMii wizard you should get a guide similar to this and 2 wads if you just want to update the system menu.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Thanks ModMii

    The ideal version is 4.1.

    Yep, because it's the last system menu version which contains a real update.

    It's their choice, but that doesn't change the fact that updating is not a logical choice. 4.2 and 4.3 were designed to kill homebrew, brick region changed Korean Wii's, and block region free for modchips. No features or bugfixes were included.

    It's not entirely true. IOS 58 and official usb 2.0 were introduced with sysmenu 4.3 as well.
    The ios can easily be installed without the menu update as well, I know.
    But, I think it was a new feature that came with system menu 4.3.

    Actually that's not entirely true. IOS58 was out long before 4.3, just not on NUS. :P

    Anyway, I'm not talking about full updates, I'm talking about System Menus. If we are counting full updates then I guess you could go ahead and say the stub that removed bootmii as IOS, the boot2 update (from 4.2, but included if you hadn't updated before) that removes bootmii as boot2, and the stubs that removed cIOS's were new features as well, lol.

    It was needed for the microphone games or so I think.
    Did those games just installed ios58 as update, or did they update the system menu to 4.3? Just curious.

    It's needed for camera games. The first game was in 3.X time iirc which contained IOS58.

    They updated your SM if you had an old one, but it was before 4.3.

    IOS58 was a nice addition to the HBC, but I'm still pissed at TT for saying that anything supporting IOS202 would be removed from wiibrew. In my experience (and it's the same for a lot of other people) 202 base 60 is a lot faster and has better compatibility. Media players always lag or don't detect my HDDs with IOS58, but it always works fine if I'm using a cIOS. Their excuse was that 202 is "ugly", it replaces a vanilla IOS making it risky, and is used for warez, which is complete nonsense since it uses an empty slot (no replacement), only media players use 202, and who cares if they think a cIOS is "ugly", it works better.

    Pfff now that discussion again. I like IOS202 more too but that's their decision.

    No, the reason for the removal of those apps is because there is absolutely no reason to install any "patched" IOS (18 months later and the warez loaders still haven't figured out how to use their cIOSes without installing them first) and historically n00bs have proven that no matter how simple you make instructions for them, they'll still fuck up and brick themselves by removing or replacing vital IOSes.

    There is no replacement or danger from installing a cIOS in a slot over 200, and no warez loaders use 202.

    Now that the network bug has been fixed, I can see why things like the Trucha Bug Restorer and Dop-Mii might be removed from Wiibrew, but there was no reason to bully developers into switching to IOS58.
