    you're doing it wrong.

    4.2 bannerbomb is used differently from older bannerbomb

    or you forgot to put the boot.elf in the root

    What about explaining how it works then? [​IMG]

    Be sure there is a boot.elf in the SD card root, then run bannerbomb by going to the SD card Menu (the SD icon in the wii menu)

    edit: too late [​IMG]

    Be sure bannerbomb is the only thing in the private folder on the SD card
    Be sure there is no boot.dol in the SD card root

    BootMii as Boot2 is the best brick protection
    But if you can't install it, get Priiloader

    Perhaps buy an external harddrive and launch the games off that?

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    Yeah, maybe they upgrade new dvd drive on your wii that wont allow you to play backup games. As Evil-Popeye said buy an external hard drive. [​IMG]
