    Whoops, that's 4.2. NVR Mind.


    Make sure the hack is on the root of the SD card.

    This is a forum, not a chatroom.
    Post a question and wait for a reply.
    Ten thousand people could be reading and if none of them know the answer then what do you want them to do?
    It's a simple problem you could fix by following instructions but I digress

    No one is helping because you are proving yourself to be rather helpless / noobish.

    First off, this is a forum, not a chat room --- double, tripple, and whatever you just managed is almost always against the rules. Be patient, people can go days without an answer, that's how a forum works.

    (Beaten to this damnit... same comment even!)

    Second, you have boot.elf in the root of your SD card? (That is... directly on the card, no other folders before it, other folders around it are fine)? This file boot.elf is in the bootmii installer package.

    Hm... I thought that was just a mistake from your previous post.

    What exactly are you renaming? boot.elf is boot.elf, no renaming required.

    From: http://bootmii.org/download/

    Download the hackmii installer. It should be a zip file.

    Inside that zip is a folder called hackmii_installer_v0.7b

    Inside that folder is are a few txt files and two elf files, one being the boot.elf you want on the root of your SD card.

    OK, I've not used this hack before and I don't know how to fix your problem. Hope this helps.

    Better?

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! i just figured out what ive been doing wrong!

    i love you picano! [​IMG]

    OMG OMG IT WORKED THANK YOU PICANO!

    i wasnt supposed to rename anything! i just had to put the boot.elf file on the root! brb

    The main reason i wanted HBC is to get orcania/ gecko

    how do i do that?

    Gecko OS (Download on side):

    http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Geck:wtf:S

    Inside the zip are a bunch of folders. Navigate to...

    Gecko1931\Gecko1931\HBC

    Inside that HBC folder is a final "Gecko1931" folder (It contains 3 files of its own, boot.elf, metal.xml, and icon.png)

    You will want to copy that folder into a folder called "apps" on your SD card. In the end it should be like..

    SD:\apps\Gecko1931\boot.elf
    SD:\apps\Gecko1931\icon.png
    SD:\apps\Gecko1931\meta.xml

    But I also suggest you download the HomeBrewBrowser: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Browser

    Installation is similar, except inside the zip are two folders. You'll want to copy the "homebrew_browser" onto your SD card.

    SD:\apps\homebrew_browser\boot.dol
    SD:\apps\homebrew_browser\icon.png
    SD:\apps\homebrew_browser\loop.mod
    SD:\apps\homebrew_browser\meta.xml
    SD:\apps\homebrew_browser\settings.xml

    What this does? It's an app where you can install (and update) other apps directly from your wii. You will likely never have to remove your SD card again.
