    -the installer is usually the hackmii installer but since it refuses to install on vWii we had to do it with the WAD file
    -the loader stub is the IOS itself
    -the mini is the armboot.bin
    -the bootmii-ppc is the ppcboot.elf file. If it doesn't get to this point or it crashes before putting anything on the screen, we get the black screen since this is the only part that can interact with the GPU

    I was actually going to ask you what your WIIDEV is set to. I've had the libraries for a while now but when I finally tried to compile myself I got the same error you did at first (but I'm running windows ...)

    Where do we go from here as far as testing is concerned?

    well, I need to make something to test first. I have some ideas but finding time to sit down and put them together is the problem. I've also had some trouble actually compiling myself so I'll need to fix thay as well.

    I spoke to marcan about Bootmii-Ios not installing on vWii, apparently it is a trivial bug, which will be fixed soon.

    In the meantime, I suggest refraining from attempting to install via wads, lest you encounter a wiimode brick.

    If you have any questions PM me.

    Well, some have already installed it, but nothing bad happened thank goodness. Couldn't they just uninstall it though?

    Well, glad it's gonna be fixed (now that you mention it, I wonder if it has anything to do with the reason forwarder channels had to be fixed for vWii ... anyway ... ) I guess I'll still have to devise other methods of running ARM code, oh well. ( easy is boring, it's the challenge that's fun ... besides the fact that the WAD idea would be more work on the user end.)

    ok so I can't get my keyboard to work (usb debug attached) BUT!!! all 4 usb are accessible to the vwii in Linux. I'm thinking that's weird. I can plug a keyboard into each port, and while it does not WORK, I can see syslog noticing it and attempting to load drivers.
