    So today I'm trying to softmod my Wii, because it was collecting dust on my shelf, and I can't run Bootmii from the HBC? I think it may be my SD card (Kingston 8 GB SDHC), but I don't have any others. Help? Also, instead of an SD, can I use a USB? I have a couple of USBs to use. I'm truly sorry about this, Because I'm totally new to the Wii hacking scene, but thanks for taking your time to help me [​IMG]

    EDIT: Oh yeah, I'm on VER 4.2u and currently trying to backup NAND, yet, I cannot as bootmii won't work for me.

    So it goes to a black screen after you launch Bootmii from the HBC?

    Did you install bootmii in boot2 or in IOS254?

    Sounds to me like you installed it in boot2, HBC can only launch bootmii in IOS254.

    I'm not aware of USB support in bootmii. I imagine it wouldn't do it due to limited hardware access in bootmii.

    Not every 2GB SD card works.

    it never gave me an option to install as boot2, so I installed it as IOS254. I might try my mom's SD card from her camera, but first I have to transfer her pictures in a safe place in my laptop.

    Okay, so I have my mom's sd card, and I'm going to use that. It's a Sandisk ultra 8 gb, so it should work, and now I want to start over, so how to do uninstall everything, like HBC and cios?

    Just launch hackmii installer, it can also uninstall stuff like dvdx, hbc and bootmii (if you wish..)
    But you could simply just re-install them without deleting..


    ALSO: I'm on a PAL 4.1 all ios's up to date.
    and cant launch bootmii ios from latest hbc also (yes i have bootmii installed as ios, and boot2)
    It goes to a black screen..
    I didn't care much for this problem/bug anyway, since i use it as boot2 also.
    But i guess it could be unpleasant for people without a vulnerable boot2..

    (i didn't test if i can axx bootmii ios through priiloader yet... would be a good idea to do this..)
