    Well I screwed up big time, I had an old OS and wanted to update so I tried to follow a guide. First thing I did was take off HBC because the first thing the guide did was install it. Unfortunately the BannerBomb says my IOS is corrupted and won't load. What is my next step to get this to a usable OS so I can hack it?

    I'm going to guess that the actual message you got was about there being no vulnerable IOS, not a "corrupted" IOS.

    Remove the link, not allowed

    So I'm taking that bannerbomb DOES load as you get the message.
    Replace the boot.elf of the hackmii installer on the SD card by the boot.dol of DOP-Mii
    Use DOP-Mii to install clean IOS34/61 and hackmii will work again.

    If you need more detailed instructions, just ask
    Many people here can help you (we're basically used to that stuff [​IMG])

    Also, I already said, please remove the w***o link. It contains Warez (aka not allowed)
    The guide is just a copy of an old version of the Guide here btw (It still has my name on the bottom, lol)

    Great because I could use some more help - I am trying to install IOS36 (v351) w/Fakesign

    I am getting the Error -


    You need an IOS with Fakesign (Truncha) bug.
    ERROR! Failed to Downgrade IOS15 to v257


    Thanks again

    ///Update - Trying this from another persons advise...


    If it says no vulnerable IOS then I assume the Wii has been hacked before? Since this is I believe the only reason you should recieve this error.

    If so run Bannerbomb, but instead of using the boot.elf file for hackmii installer use boot.dol for Pimp My Wii, then follow these instructions.

    Select Minimal to Downgrade IOS15 and patch IOS36.
    Pimp My Wii will scan your IOS for suitable IOS for the install.
    You only need to read the prompt and press the (A) button on your Wii remote.
    Do not change any of the patching options, let Pimp My Wii choose them for you.
    Leave all settings at default. All you have to do is press the (A) button on your Wii remote.


    After that you should be able run the hackmii installer, and be able to do other stuff needed.

    ///Update - That let me install the HBC with your guide - I think I am good to go - Thans to all for your help

    Sorry, but this is funny. You gave us a porn site instead of a link to the guide you used. Copy Paste Fail! [​IMG]
