    Greetings - haven't been on the site in a very long time. Our wii has sat largely unused for over a year except for a few times here and there due to ipods and ipads entering the house. My son has come of age to be able to play modern warfare games, played at a friend's house, and suddenly we have interest again. Here's the problem -- I have most of my games on an external drive, and it's not working.

    I'm on version 4.2U, softmodded, older white wii. Using cfg USB loader. I assumed the problem was with the external drive. I did a thorough chkdsk, and found no errors. So I thought that maybe I needed to update the cfg loader, but when I try to go into it, it crashes.

    1. Is there a way to update the loader software without going into the channel? It's been so long since the last time I messed with hacking it that I honestly don't remember what I did?
    2. If no way to upgrade just the loader, should I go ahead and update the wii to 4.3 and start over with modmii? Are there advantages to going to 4.3? The newest game I have is COD Black Ops.
    3. If I need to update to 4.3, can I just let it update over normal system update, or will that mess things up for me? I know that bootmii is installed, and I would do a NAND backup before I did the update, but just didn't know if there was an easier way.

    I have done some reading - not just trolling or looking for the easy way out, but I don't have time to read for hours before I even begin the process. Any help that you can give will be appreciated.

    Do not update through the wii

    Use modmii, answer the questions and it will update just what you need

    Cfg - let modmii do it for you, it will install a forwarder and the latest version of the program
