    Hi all,

    I'm just after some assistance getting the HBC setup and running. I have a PAL Wii running v3.4E with a WiiKey v1.

    Now I've followed the instructions as per this site -->
    So to get started Ive followed the link here -->

    I've got a blank SD card, so following the steps,

    1. Get BannerBomb and extract it to the SD Card, I've used the latest version
    I now have a file on my SD card \private\wii\title\aktn\content.bin

    2. Get HackMii Installer v0.6 or later from Here
    I open the zip, there are a few files in there, but the instructions say just to extract the file boot.elf into the root of the SD card.

    Now I put the card in the Wii and load the boot.elf, it loads fine comes up with the warning, and to press 1 to continue.

    This is where it gets stuck, I press 1 and nothing happens, the Wii freezes. I try a different version of the BannerBomb,

    Still no good! I'd just like to know if what I'm doing is correct, and I should just keep trying different versions of BannerBomb, or have I missed something?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Ill first try all versions available of bannerbomb, then I'll look for an older hackMii installer.
    I'll post back the results.
