    Because there are 10 threads a day asking how to get the Homebrew Channel on a virgin Wii with Firmware 4.0, here is the guide.

    Step 1

    WAIT!

    that's it. at this point there is no way. you can't with a mod chip either.

    REASONS:

    To put homebrew on via a modchip, you need the trucha bug in at least one IOS, which Nintendo has patched up in 4.0. The bug is completely gone.

    No, you can't use MarioKart Wii to patch in a version of the Homebrew Channel because you would need the trucha bug, and on 4.0 it's gone.

    No, you can't use the Twilight Hack, because Nintendo has disabled that as well. When you put the TPHack on your system menu, it will remove all "bad" code from it, rendering it a regular save file, with no hacks.

    If you accidentally upgraded via the Update button, sorry, but your just going to have to wait.

    If you bought your Wii with 4.0 on it, agian, sorry, but you'll have to wait.

    There is another option,
    Learn how to code wii then make an exploit yourself then release it for everyone on a 4.0 xD

    You can reintroduce the trucha bug to 4.0 and there are a few thread in this board of how to do it.
    But ofcourse you would need an exploit to do it on a virgin Wii and since the Twilight Hack doesn't work anymore you'll have to wait for something new like bannerbomb...

    Let's discuss something to keep the thread up...

    But how to do that on a Wii that was produced with 4.0? I think all new Wiis are "unsoftmoddable" ones, which can't run old IOS. How do you want to reintroduce the trucha bug without using a trucha capable IOS? I know you can install Waninkoko's new cIOS on these Wiis, but how do you do that without using the IOS35 trick?

    So here is the proof that everyone has been wanting, this has the .dol loading code implemented. It only technically works on 3.2 at the time being but its a small fix to get it to work for the other versions (including 3.4 and 4.0). Comex is a bit busy right now so those versions will follow soon (like tomorrow or the next day).

    The exploit is very simple, just put the file on your sd card (which will be a channel).
    Go to the SD channel menu and a dialog will pop up, hit yes and it will load boot.dol from the root of the SD Card. It can load any .dol so this means you can run Homebrew on a Wii with ease if you don't want to fully Mod your Wii.

    You seem not to understand the problem. On a "unsoftmoddable" 4.0 Wii you might be able to run code when an exploit is released. But how do you want to get a trucha compatible IOS?

    you need the trucha bug to install any cIOS, so at this point, it's kinda pointless to get the exploit... all you can run is the HBC, no softmods, no hd loaders, and I don't even think you can install WADs without a cIOS anymore, since all the IOS's are trucha fixed

    As long as the person on 4.0 doesn't have an "unsoftmoddable" wii, having the HBC installed via a future exploit will let him do the DVDX/IOS35 downgrade method to reintroduce the Trucha bug. Of course for the "unsoftmoddable" folks on 4.0 we'll have to see if they can ever crack those to the point of being able to downgrade them. After all the other stuff that's happened in the scene I wouldn't be surprised if it happens.

    What if I have HBC on a system 4.0? How do I get the SD card update to work with wads?

    That downgrade process uses the Trucha bug since what it does is use a nonpublic exploit that allows an older IOS35 to be installed. This works fine for most of us, but an "unsoftmoddable" Wii on 4.0 wouldn't let you run anything off of the older version of IOS35.

    Hmm... out of curiosity, please explain. I'm not sure what your definition of unsoftmodable is. I'm curious as to why, if the IOS35 did indeed install (I don't know much about this downgrader thing as I have absolutely no need for it), why System Menu 4 would magically block anything from using it.
