    I'm trying to install bootmii. I'm running 3.2U.

    I tried running the installer (renamed boot.elf) in the HBC. I get to the Warning screen about not purchasing or selling homebrew and it says press 1 to continue (hackmii). My wiimote is NOT lit, and nothing works. I am stuck here.

    I tried again running it from the preloader (0.29). Same thing, only the wiimote IS lit.

    I unplugged ALL USB, GC controllers, GC mem cards, and in the preloader one, I even took out the SD card. The only thing hooked into my wii is the power and the video out.

    What is going on???

    Try backing up everything on your SD card and reformatting it, then just put the bootmii installer on there.

    Bootmii never had wiimote support to begin with and probably won't for a while. You HAVE to use a GC controller or the face buttons on the system.

    This is quite normal, mate.

    There is no Bluetooth driver on BootMii right now.

    ohhh ok...thanks.

    I wish they had better documentation. I usually do about a day's worth of research and plan step-by-step how I'm gonna install something, and back out if needed. I felt like this time I was flying by the seat of my pants.

    Thanks everyone!

    You do know that you can take the BootMii files off of the SD card and let it autoboot to the Wii Menu, right?

    "So, what did you do? My wiimote is still not recognized at the installer screen, and I have no GC controller."
    Here (in Canada) at superstore they are $10. A friend could lend you one because you only need it one time for installing and can update HBC through the HBC with a wiimote [​IMG]. I'm sure a friend wouldn't mind lending you one for a day. Here I would if I knew you and lived nearby =D. Hope you find one!
    Edit: Not linking to it is not against the rules right? Just mentioning it like backup loader isos or usb loader issues. I'm happy to remove it if I am requested. Just let me know and A.S.A.P. I'll remove it.

    From the BootMii FAQ:
    Code:
    My WiiMote froze up in the installer and I can't continue!
    
    This may happen if you've never used the red sync button to sync your Wii. Try exiting back out to the main Wii menu, sync your WiiMote, then try again. Also, try a GameCube controller if you have one.

    You can also use the face buttons of the Wii to navigate. (This may be just for post-install, I'm not sure)

    Power = changes selection
    Reset = choose selection

    Yes, but only after installation, not before !

    But please answer my question: Do you have Cioscorp (MiiWii, SoftMii) installed ??

    you shouldn't ask if he has CIOScorp INSTALLED, you should ask WHY HAS HE STILL GOT IT INSTALLED. its an outdated program and is really not necessary in a wii nowadays [​IMG]

    Me? Not sure if you are talking to me or not, but I do not have CIOScorp installed. I have BootMii on Boot2 and thats the only brick protection I have right now. Preloader also wouldn't install for me, don't remember why though (think some error code..).
