    My Wii is a 4.3 and I downloaded the Modmii program unto a USB memory stick as I don't have a SD card reader. I am really new to all this (still trying to figure how how to burn dvd's) LOL . I am really unsure of what to do and really don't want to mess up my Wii. If it does mess up, is there a way to undo the mess? LOL

    Thank you,
    Sondra

    ps. I do have a internet on the Wii if that's makes a difference?

    well, Modmii is installed/run on a computer....it does the downloading via the internet to a file you must move to an SD card...somehow...

    the hackmii installer (the first step of modding) must be done with an SD card in the wii, a USB stick does not work.

    You will need a SD card for the majority of the modding process.

    Just go buy a cheap 1-2gb card, and make sure it is not SDHC.

    EDIT:

    Having an Internet Connection; can help in some cases.
    If you mess up your console (which is unlikely if you follow directions correctly), then you are proably messed up for good.. unless you have a NAND backup, and Priiloader installed/ or BootMii as boot2.)

    if you had a camera or something with an SD card slot, you could feasibly move the files there with that. but if you cannot organize them properly, it's of no use....

    @EmbraceFiction: i think once you get HBC on the wii, you could do pretty much everything else from a USB stick (feel free to correct me if i'm wrong though)....

    Yes; I think you are right.
    If you are using 4.0+, then you will have the HBC in IOS58, which supports a more broad arrangement of USB devices.

    Though, I would still recommend using a SD card, because there are still a lot of apps that only support SD devices.
    I could not get Multi-Mod Manager to work with any of my devices, and I don't think that the mod for animal crossing works with a USB either.

    EDIT:

    Either one of these devices need to be formatted to FAT32, or have a FAT32 partition (USB).
