I believe I’ve successfully hacked my Wii that came with firmware v4.2U. I haven’t hooked up a HD with my games yet but the installs completed without any problems except for one.
The one problem was:
I did all of the steps in order but when I tried step 3.2 (instead of step 3.1) the following happened:
I completed Hack your Wii / Minimal Installation but when I went to Manual Install, the program started and in the dialog box that opens on the screen the following text came up about 3 seconds after the program was launched:
Found 53 Titles
Old IOS Used (Less Than 28)
Reload IOS 36 OK
The Wii froze there. I wasn’t able to do anything. I shut the console down, restarted it and used step 3.1 instead of 3.2. Everything went fine with step 3.1. Just to let you know, I did have the Pimp My Wii Offline files unzipped and in the root directory of the SD card when I attempted to do step 3.2. This card also contains all of the Hack My Wii files. It is formatted in the original FAT (not FAT 32) but there wasn’t any problems in completing any of the steps other than the second part of 3.2.
I’m wondering why the system froze and if it may have caused any problems that might show up when I try to use the console?
