I've received a Wii console that has already been soft-modded. It was set up by a friend and all I have to do is finish the setup. I'm not 100% sure which method he used to soft-mod it, however, it was completed correctly as he played backup games from a HDD for awhile to test it before I received the console. I've did some research via the many Wii modding tutorials, and based on the info I also pulled from the Wii itself (that I assume would be helpful for anyone to help me), here is where I am: 1) My Wii console version is 4.2U (based on the info in the settings menu) 2) The Homebrew Channel is installed. Upon loading the channel it's blank with a blink "signal" icon blinking in the bottom lower right hand corner. The version info says 1.08 & IOS58 v23.30 "Network Not Installed" 3) If I select BootMii the console just cycles and the power slot blinks but nothing happens. So where do I go from here? Do I need to update the softmod (as all of this was done about two years ago). Should the Homebrew Channel also be reinstalled/updated? Thanks!
