    Hey, I got a new WII and I want want to softmode it, I read this topic: http://gbatemp.net/t171901-modify-any-wii-4-2-below
    and I have two questions about it:
    1) where do I get the up42x.zip file or up43x.zip maybe?
    2) Do I have to use Super Smash Brothers Brawl Lego Indiana Jones Yu-Gi-OH 5D's Wheelie Breakers to mod a 4.3 WII? or is there another way to do it, because I don't have any of this games.

    waiting for answers really quick, thanks in advance

    If your wii has never been modded before you will need one of those games. Either borrow or rent them. SSBB for an american wii or Indiana jones for a european one. I belive you need to email an address in that post to get those files. Check the modmii sticky while you are at it.

    EDIT: NO u can't u'll get a 003(4) error (Not sure on the number!)

    Bannerbomb V2 is real, but doesn't work on 4.3.
    It was made for the 4.2 update (but should work on 4.0 and 4.1 as well)

    I thought v2 was specifically 4 SMs with 4.2 and v1 was 4 SMs 3.4-4.1!

    Bannerbomb V1 works on 3.0-4.1 (according to the site, might work below 3.0 as well)
    Bannerbomb V2 works on 4.0-4.2

    I don't know how good it is with 4.3 - but I softmodded my 4.2E Wii using 'ModMii' with no problems, and it claims it can Mod 4.3
    and because it downloads everything required, you don't need Super Smash Brothers Brawl / Lego Indiana Jones / Yu-Gi-OH 5D's / Wheelie Breakers game(s) to do it
    (note however IF you want USB HDD support you do need to run it twice 1st time to softmod,2nd time to get USB support)

    Yeah, that's what you'd hope [​IMG]
    You cannot softmod 4.3 without one of those games (unless it was softmodded before of course).

    Either will work (I think)
    For Super Smash Bros you can only use NTSC-U.
