    Hi all,

    as a fellow noob who had to dig through 50 pages of the same questions, whines, and screams about 4.3 would it be too hard to have a short 4.3 FAQ sticky that answers the most common questions. That way, threads wouldn't get bogged down with repetition and well-meaning folk explaining the same things over and over.

    OMG My little brother updated my Wii to 4.3. What can I do to make Homebrew work again?
    - If you have BootMii as boot2v4 installed and have a NAND backup just restore your Wii and enjoy.
    - If you have a NAND backup but BootMii was lost (I read you can get it back, but too noob to understand).
    - No NAND backup. DO NOT try to downgrade. You have no NAND backup and downgrading carries a high risk of bricking. Dedicated hackers are working their asses off to make Homebrew work on 4.3 so just sit tight and enjoy your Wii games the old fashioned way.

    Are there more advanced methods to get back Homebrew?
    - Yes, but they require specific games and as you are a noob and don't have a NAND backup, do you really want to brick your Wii?
    - You can use Smash Stack or Indiana Pwns method. See guide http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-g...os-4-3-wii.html

    Phew. I'm still on 4.2. But now I can't sleep because my Wii might update to 4.3 and ruin my life forever
    - DO NOT update through official Nintendo online or disk updates
    - You will always be asked by your Wii if you want to update, but if you need family retard protection use Preloader or StartParch to block online and disk updates.

    Don't I need 4.3 to enjoy my Wii to the fullest?
    - NO. The core update is solely there to break Homebrew and does not add any features at all. You will not miss anything by not updating.

    But my Shop Channel no longer works. I'm not a filthy pirate, so I want to download my stuff fair and square.
    - You can update the Shop Channel independently of the 4.3 update. Guide here: http://gwht.wikidot.com/wii-shop

    Not updating to 4.3 will not affect any of my legal enjoyment of games? I don't believe you.
    - Staying on 4.2 will not affect any of your games. I promise.
    - Sooner or later games will ship that require a disk upgrade to play, but just use Preloader or StartPatch to disable them.

    What about IOS58? That's new. I want it, I want it, I want it!
    - Only games that use USB cameras use IOS58 (such as Ubisoft's Your Shape)
    - Use this neat little program to install ios58: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=207126

    Against all logic, I want 4.3 and Homebrew on my Wii. Is it possible?
    - To reiterate, there is no need to take this risk. Please make sure you have a NAND backup before proceeding.
    - There are Firmware Updates that will safely take your Wii to 4.3 without breaking Homebrew, such as Waninkoko's 4.3b. Note that this will not work if you are already on 4.3.

    It's used by Ubisoft's "Your Shape" game. IOS58 is the only IOS with support for USB cameras.

    Nice guide, good start.

    The only thing I might add is Waninkoko's 4.3b updater for those who insist to have 4.3 installed on their systems while keeping homebrew.

    HAHA, Funny story, Waninkoko was on at the same time of this posting [​IMG]

    stickys only help users who know how to read, and those users will read the other 4.3 threads anyways. So just get used to seeing tousands of nw sm4.3 threads everywhere.... kinda like this one

    Wow, who invited you? No need for your negative attitude, if you don't like it, then don't read it, simple as that.

    you invited me personally.
    Its stupid for ppl to make threads requesting stickies when nobody reads them anyways. So not only do we have 500000 system menu 4.3 threads, we also have a sm4.3 sticky request thread. anything else youd like to make a new thread about since youre so awesome at it

    Don't feed the troll. He made his opinion known (as cuntily as possible). If enough people actually read and comment on this, it'll stay up and help people deal with this update. If not, it will disappear and I will just have to kill myself.

    Let's not make this threat about whether it should be a sticky or not. I though it would contribute to the forum, but hey, I'm allowed to be wrong. Let's just make it a good summary for noobs who don't feel like reading "500000" threads to get the info they need.

    Pretty sure this is not true because the HBC installer doesn't work on 4.3

    Not a perfect solution but this seems to get Homebrew back http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-g...os-4-3-wii.html

    doesn't mean you can't use homebrew.
    In the Pre-HBC days we used to load homebrew using twilight hack and some other loader.
    Maybe we can make a channel for loadMii as temporary fix.

    Thanks for doing this topic.... I have 4.2 on mine and didn't want to wade through 40+ pages to figure out if I needed to do anything!

    Untill they start releasing games with SM 4.3 updates on em ...

    Which will probably happen with new upcomming games for the holiday season.

    So you need at least let your Wii believe you have 4.3 SM or block updates and have the all the needed IOS's installed.

    couldn't you just make a WAD of the pre-scam warning Homebrew channel (beta 8, beta 9, etc), and then just upgrade the hbc?

    I have to say I am a little confused by this. I know that those 2 games will let me load HBC but does that mean I would have to do this each time I turn the Wii back on after being off? At least until 4.3 gets figured out which may take some time since it's not required (yet)?

    When you update HBC it downloads the 1.0.6 installer and then runs it. So it will be the same result.

    I wonder if any other games will use the USB camera. I'd like to see what they can come cup with.
