    Done my friends 4.3e Wii the other week but you need to get hold of a copy of Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventure. I might be able to convince them to post it to you if you're not in a rush? They bought their copy from Cex.

    Used ModMii that renke_uk posted a little while ago to do it: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Yep you'll need it mate and shouldn't cost any more than £15. Make sure you get Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventure as there's a sequel (The Adventure Continues).

    ModMii generates a guide that is specific to your firmware revision when you go through the wizard. Here's a copy/paste of the bit that explains the exploit:

    INDIANA PWNS EXPLOIT

    REQUIREMENT: A copy of LEGO Indiana Jones

    A. Load the LEGO Indiana Jones game at least once
    (otherwise you won't be able to copy over the hack).

    B. Backup your personal LEGO Indiana Jones save file before copying the files to your SD Card (if applicable):

    a) Put your SD card in your Wii and turn it on.
    b) Go into Wii Options - Data Management - Save Data - Wii
    c) Find your Indiana save, click on it, click "Copy", and click Yes. Now erase the save file from the Wii.
    d) Put your SD card in your computer, and copy the "private" folder from the card to a safe place. Alternatively you can temporarily rename it.

    C. Copy the files from the COPY_TO_SD to the root of your SD card (if you haven’t already) and insert it into your Wii

    D. Go into Wii Options - Data Management - Save Data - Wii - SD Card
    then copy over the "Indiana Pwns" save that corresponds to your region.

    E. Play the Lego Indiana Jones game. Load the new save file.

    You will be in the Main hall, walk towards the camera,
    enter the first door on the right (Indy's left) and go into the 'Courtyard'.
    Walk to the end and enter the 'Art Room', you will see a podium with 2 characters on it, talk to the left one.

    Hit left twice (scrolling through his items) to choose the switch option (Black silhouette with a white arrow to another black silhouette)
    Hit A to launch the boot.elf/dol file saved on the root of your SD card.

    Depending on the age of the machine, at that price, it would be cheaper to slap a modchip in there and download IndianaJones if you still wanted to softmod it as well....or if you know anyone with a chipped wii, just borrow their drive for the time taken to do it.

    Are you happy to pay £15 for the game? It's apparently in stock at Newcastle at CeX for that price and as I'm in city centre tomorrow I could pick it up for you and post? Let me know
