    Hey all, I got a new limited edition of a black Wii (she looks fantastic [​IMG] )

    Ok, I installed successfuly BootMii IOS, HBC 1.0.6, DVDX as well as cIOS rev15 and hermes cIOS222/223. Im on 4.2E.

    The problem is, I cannot lauch any homebrew applications. I always get a black screen. What's the reason of that? Has it anythng to do with the new blackWii?

    As far as I know, I am not the only one with the exact same problem. Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    Just to clarify... you can't launch any homebrew? Or is it just burns/ISOs that don't work? You had to launch some homebrew at one point if you've run the bootmii installer and the cIOS wads.

    Will HBC load?

    No I dont have usb loader installed yet, I just cant launch any homebrew application. Always get a black screen. I used the Complete Softmod Guide to install successfully homebrew and all applications did work at this time, but suddenly my hbc did stop lauching any applications. I did not modify anything since the cIOS installation.

    The odd thing about this, is that this shit happend to another people with black wiis as well.

    If that's the case the there's a good chance it is related to some new security in the black Wii...

    Try re-installing an official 4.2 system menu, then hacking. If the black versions came with a special system menu then this should fix it...

    If it doesn't then it'd almost sound like there's hardware based anti-homebrew in there... but that doesn't make any sense at all, so I'm highly doubtful.

    Was my first idea, too. But why would it miss IOS36, since it's not stubbed? There is no practical reason... well, except the side effect mentioned above.

    For what it's worth, I have had a similar problem ever since I updated the Homebrew Channel to 1.0.6. Many times, when I try to run homebrew applications, the Wii will get stuck on a black screen. However, if I keep trying, they will eventually load. Maybe this could also be the case for you?

    I am on 3.0U, and the highest IOS that I have is IOS35.

    Also, this problem seems to have been mentioned...

    No the IOS36 is not missing. As I said before, the HBC did suddenly stop launching homebrew. After the installation of cIOS etc. any applications worked fine, but for some reason it did stop the next day =/

    My blackWii works fine after following the simple tutorial. Haven't tried much but WADs installed fine.

    The common point seems to be HBC using IOS 35...

    That's the one to use. One step was a bit vague, dunno if it's corrected but you should get around it
