    Sounds like you have a USB Loader forwarder channel (ie. a shortcut) installed.

    Try getting a cheap SD card, create an apps folder, create a folder in the apps folder called usbloader_gx and download r815.dol from here. Rename it to boot.dol and move it to the last folder you created.

    Not saying that will fix it for you but most likely will.

    it has to be the old style flux capacitor. the new ones cant handle the necessary 1.2 gigawats and you'll brick your SD card. and make sure you use one from your region. if you want to use a PAL capacitor with a NTSC wii, you need to be using preloader hacks to allow any region.

    Ok I did that. Installed it into the apps folder on my sd card. It is named boot.dol and it still does not work. Even when I go through HBC says IOS 236 not found.

    Guy u're crazy: the OP doesn't need a flux capacitor. He just need to connect his Wii's DVD drive to a spectrophotometer, then signal has to be demodulate with a reversed-polarity solar panel .... or use the search function

    Do like this (sounds like he messed up his HBC also or did I misunderstand?)

    download bannerbomb (depending on your wii system menu) www.bootmii.org
    download Hackmii installer and place boot.dol in the SD root.

    Go to SD card and run the bannerbomb and install the latest HBC, tada fine!

    Download a USB loader (try a diffrent one if usbloader gx do not work, I myself like wiiflow) Check the "Wii - Backup loader" on the GBATemp forums.

    If they still do not work, download the latest cIOS versions and install them(cIOS38 rev17 and Hermes cIOS222/223) www.google.com
