    the modchip only enables playing beackups, but you need an exploit to install the hbc, but at the moment, there is no

    Wasn't there something about loading a modified ISO of Mario Kart that replaces the MK cannel with the HBC?

    That would require having the trucha bug from 3.2 still installed, and since 3.3v1, 3.3v2, 3.4, and 4.0 have all gotten rid of said bug, you can't load a modified disc on 4.0 without GeckoOS or a USB Loader... and since you can't get those without the HBC, yea, kinda screwed till comex (sp?) releases his bannerbomb hack

    No, your in catch 22. In order to install it there needs to be a software exploit. A mod chip allows you to boot backups. Backups do not install to the system. When they do install system ios from disk the ios is correctly signed anyway. You need to wait for a new exploit to be found. I hate to tell you all your searching has been a waste of time but it has. The guys you've seen install all this with sys menu 4 dont have virgin menus they have patched sys 4 menus.

    I was think about the same thing.

    I have a 4.0 Wii with drivechip. I tried replacing RevoKartNR.wad on the MKW ISO with the Homebrew Channel wad. It didn't work when I tried to install in through Mario Kart Channel. I'm thinking it's because the game doesn't allow installing anything that doesn't match RevoKartNR.wad's ticket and ID without a pre-installed cIOS. Which means a modified HBC wad (to match RevoKartNR.wad's basic information) must be used.

    But the disc boots fine, somehow modifications in partition 3 doesn't affect it.
