    Hello,

    Since last week, Homebrew Channel told me that there's a 1.10 update available. But when it enters the Homebrew Channel, it just frooze, the wiimote doesn't work anymore.

    I didn't change anything on my Wii since, hmm, centuries? So I wonder why this happens now.

    Any ideas?

    That doesn't even matter a little. The System Menu isn't running when the HBC is running.

    No I can't, the wiimote stop working on that screen, when I open the homebrew channel.

    That way, I can't even run hackmii or anything else...

    Can I update it directly on the SD Card ?

    Actually, it's not only the wiimote, all the system is frozen, I can't even power down the console unless I unplug the power cable.

    Hold down POWER for 4 seconds to do a hard shutdown, then retry the install.

    Same, doesn't change a thing. It seems that it froze when the HBC is booted.

    So you are turning on the Wii, click on the HBC, choosing Launch, and then the Wii freezes?

    There's a save file for HBC ?

    I'm looking around in my SD card and I don't see any files that could be a save file for HBC. Where should it be?

    It's not on your SD. Go to Data Management and delete it from your Wii.

    Got it.

    Still, same issue.

    HBC load, the wiimote goes off, I see the wifi working and I got the message to upgrade to 1.1.0. Everything is frozen, I must unplug the power cable to stop the console.

    Then you don't actually have the latest version. Get it from bootmii.org.

    The same way you installed it from the beginning. Through an exploit.

    Ok done with Bannerbomb. Now, I got two HBC on my main screen. Though, both want to update to 1.10.0 but when it finish the download, it just boot again with bootmii. Guess I did something wrong but at least, I can now use MPlayer like before.
