    So I bannerbomb a wii (4.2U) just like it says in stickie. I run HBC and try to run cIOS38_rev17 installer but after a second a Wii freezes completly [​IMG]
    Same thing with Homebrew. Everything works, but Wad installer doesnot work at all.
    Any ideas?

    Did you do Virgin Wii 4.2 > HBC > cIOS Installer?
    That won't work at all

    You need to do: HBC > Trucha Bug restoring > Removing stub IOS > cIOS Installer
    Like the stickied guide and the guide in my sig tell you [​IMG]

    Yeah the new Wii's , or the latest updates prevent you from installing a cIOS because nintendo have removed the trucha bug that allowed these to be installed - there is a way to get it all working again (tj's sig tells all) but its a bit more complicated than the original and needs to be followed step by step exactly.
    Also , be careful removing the stub IOS as any title deleter is an exceptionally useful but also dangerous program and deleting the wrong thing can give you a nice white paperweight.

    Best of luck with it all - hope you get ur wii sorted !

    No it wont , and complaining about it doesnt help either. This has gone on since day one and no one minds helping someone who is stuck or who got the wrong guide, but we cant do anything about the people who give out for no reason or because they feel they have the right to because they got things done themselves at one stage.

    Thanx, and sorry for trouble. My wii is modchipped and it is a first time when I deal with softmod. One more time thank you and apologize for asking obvious questions.
