    i realise that this wuestion has been asked several million times in the past, but i cant seem to find any even with the advanced search.

    so i'm wondering, i have a wii that someone has just put the HBC on, and thats all. why does comex DVDx installer say that i am a pirate when i launch it??? this happened on the last wii too, but i could hack it anyways because it was version 3.4 instead of 4.0 so i could install IOS16 and use that to install cIOS and such.

    but because this is on 4.0, the only thing i can think of is to use comex dvdx installer to downgrade IOS35 and then use that with wad manager 1.4 to install cIOS lol

    DAMN IT.

    anyone help?
    thanks alot,
    Mikey

    I recall comex making a post that revealed it involved the Backup Launcher. Rename its HBC directory (if you run it via HBC) and remove any trace of the channel. Run NandClean, it should work.

    Maybe Comex's installer does something additional that I am not aware of, but wouldn't it be easier to install DVDX through the BootMii package?

    The thing that I noticed a few times is that if you have backup launcher on the SD card, it says you are a pirate.

    According to comex, the installer only looks in ONE specific folder on sd card, and checks for ONE spefifc channel(one titleid).

    I still wonder to this day why he would care about what other people do with their wii's so much as to implement that.....

    I remember hearing it checks for the "WAD" folder on the root of the SD Card.
