    I'm trying to update my system from 3.4U to 4.2U so I can play more recent games, but I don't want to lose my homebrew/backup abilities, so I'm trying to do this through ModMii. When I first ran the ModMii installation on my computer with Windows XP SP2, it ran okay (downloaded some files and all) but then hung up, so I ended the process after a few minutes. There were plenty of files in the attempted install folder, but none of the .exe files did anything, and now when I try to run the ModMii installation again it just gives me a blank window. Any tips?

    copy the contents of the copy_to_sd folder to your SD card, then follow the guide that ModMii build for u, it should have popped up in notepad

    Unfortunately I deleted the folders that popped up, and now I just have the ModMii Installer .exe. When I run it, it brings up a blank window and generates four other .exe files in the same folder: 7za.exe, nircmd.exe, sfk.exe, and wget.exe. None of these seem to do anything either. I've tried restarting as well as re-downloading the file, but the same result happens every time. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    EDIT: just saw the post about dop-mii, I'll check it out. Thanks

    dude, the modmii installer just installs modmii, then u need to run modmii, then let it grab the files for u and build u a guide, copy the files to ur sd and copy the guide
