    So I have a new Wii U with 5.5 but whenever I go to install the Homebrew on the vWii via Smashstack it get a DSI occurred error. I am not sure why. I am following the steps in this video here:



    After I say install Homebrew is when I get the error.

    Any help will be appreciated

    Try a different SD card if possible, alternatively you could try one of the other games with exploits

    No idea what the issue is. Is your Wii U second hand? Also, make sure the SD card is formatted as the following format(s):
    • MBR Disk
    • FAT16/32 Filesystem
    • 32kB Align
    • Primary Partition type

    If your Wii U is secondhand, they may have fucked up vWii a little. Might need to try running Syscheck in place of hackmii installer (I think thats what you do anyways)

    No it isn't second hand - I bought the Super Mario Maker Bundle from Walmart.

    What is Syscheck? How does it replace hackmii installer?

    Syscheck is a tool to verify the installed IOS titles. boot.elf is the hackmii installer, so you'd replace boot.elf with a Syscheck elf. I've never used it, but I've seen others suggest it because of problems hacking vWii. Yours isn't second hand though, so IOS' shouldn't be a problem.

    syscheck is a homebrew, and it requires The Homebrew Channel (HBC) to be installed first.
    replacing the "boot.elf" with the boot.dol will not work, even if renamed, even if compiled as elf and not converted as dol, because hackmii installer is using a vulnerability to get hardware rights (AHB access), which all other homebrew are not doing.
    All other homebrew are relying on HBC to provide AHB, they are not elevating the rights themselves.


    I don't know what the issue is.
    Try a different SD Card (even an SDHC if you don't have another SD non HC)
    Be sure it's not write protected, because it needs to write files to it.

    Could you tell when that crash happens? at install, at verification screen?
    do you see the screen "press 1" ?
    do you see the selection screen telling you to choose what to install ?

    Yea, I know that. But I could have swore there was a version (AHB patched) you can run instead of hackmii. I've seen it suggested multiple times.

    the AHB patched version is just syscheck using IOS58 and meta.xml providing AHB access, instead of reloading to IOS236 or cIOS first.
    At least, that's what I think.
    I never seen any homebrew capable of providing AHB directly from a game exploit but Hackmii installer.

    well, he can try.

    If you can run from bannerbomb without HBC, why not disc? Does it load a cIOS when available through this method? I didnt think the xmls were processed using the disc based hacks or letterbomb/bannerbomb. I've never had to syscheck though, so it's true I don't know a whole lot about it

    The crash happens when I select 'Install Homebrew Channel'. I get one dot and then boom - crash. I have tried three different SD cards all non HC. How can I tell if it is write protected?
