    A couple years ago, a friend of mine gave me his soft-modded Wii and I've had no problems with it until now with Nintendont. Whenever I boot up Nintendont, I get the error message in red text saying "failed to load kernel from NAND!" it then kicks me back to the HBC. I've tired re-downloading it, placing the meta.xml & icon.png files with the boot.dol, but I get the same thing. Does anybody know how to fix this? Any help would be much appreciated!

    Your IOS58 looks fine. Make sure your Homebrew Channel is clean (no modifications or themes) and up to date. Also, when you installed Nintendont, did you remember to also copy over the XML file to the same folder for the Nintendont boot.dol?

    For anyone that comes across this thread with the same issue, there's generally three things that can cause that error. You forgot to copy over the XML file, Homebrew Channel is outdated (or a bit borked due to a bad theme), or you're using an old/modified IOS58 (or missing it all together).

    The XML file you can grab on Nintendont's Github which is linked in the Nintendont thread, you can update your Homebrew Channel using LetterBomb or any other compatible exploit (you will probably have to remove Homebrew Channel first), and the latest IOS58 can be grabbed either by NUS Download and installing it via your favorite WAD manager or directly downloaded and install via MMM. Just make sure the IOS58 is unmodified (clean), the latest, and it goes into slot 58.

    It turns out my HBC was outdated. Since my Wii can't connect to the internet, I was never really aware of updates. After updating manually, It worked! Haven't run into any problems since. Thanks a lot!
