    Hey all!

    Okay, so I followed all of the steps for the Bannerbomb Exploit carefully. I downloaded aad1f_v108.zip and unzipped it onto the SD card as required. I made sure I had the latest version of the HackMii which is HackMii Installer v0.3. My Wii's serial number is: LU39 which was purchased yesterday from a Best Buy.

    The pop up dialogue stating "Load boot.dol/elf?" does come up. Once I click yes, the screen is black and says this, "This software must not be sold, neither alone nor as part of a bundle. If you paid for this software or received it as part of a bundle following payment, you have been scammed and should demand your money back immediately. For further details see http://hbc.hackmii.com/scam"

    It basically stays on this screen for a very long time to the point that I take it that it's frozen. While this screen is up, the led light on the Wiimote is on.

    I even tried every other format:
    aad20_v108.zip
    aad22_v108.zip
    aad1e_v108.zip
    aad26_v108.zip
    and nothing worked.

    My friend was able to do it for his Wii which is an older version LU30. His works just fine with Homebrew but it's a different process. When he put his SD card in my Wii it would actually go really far into the installation process but it would suddenly freeze and turn off his Wiimote when he gets to WAD Manager 1.4 for the 2nd time when he has to change the IOS to 35. He is not able to change it to 35 because it completely shuts off the Wiimote. He even tried using his Gamecube controller and nothing. This is where we started searching for other alternatives.

    Aside from that I have spent two whole days watching tutorials for 4.0 and 4.1 Wii's on Youtube, threads, google, etc. Everyone makes it seem so simple (especially on the Youtube videos) and it never works for me. It always freezes up and I never get far. Although my Wii is version 4.0 and is supposedly hackable now--I fear that it may be too new to work with any hacks regardless. [​IMG]

    I don't know what to do anymore at this point and really need someone's help out there.

    Thanks!

    Wow, you're amazing. Okay, so I already downgraded to IOS35.

    What do I do then? Do I take out the SD card, insert it into my computer again and install cIOSWAD rev9?

    If I do that, do I delete the boot.dol on my SD card?

    Then, when I insert the SD card back into the Wii will it automatically give me the option to update to rev14?

    How do I go about installing neogamma..is that in the Wii system or is that by computer?

    Thanks so much for your amazing help!

    Hey there!

    I just went through all of your steps but when I hit exit, there is no LoadMii section. It simply takes me back to the main Wii menu. What do I do now?

    Thanks!

    So far what has worked the best for me was installing comex 3.4 dvdx and renaming it to boot.dol with bannerbomb's private folder.

    It took me to where I chose to downgrade to 35.

    Then my only options was really to exit....where do I go from there is my problem....

    for a start, thats not exactly a brand new wii. LU39 are fairly old.

    secondly, you should have just looked in the stickies and you would have seen, for example, this guide http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171901

    tells you step by step exactly how to softmod your wii as simply as possible. works on every wii.

    Just turn the goddamn WiiConnect24 off, it will kill your Wii eventually anyways if you leave that on.

    I got this from the last Wii I did.

    I pressed 1 or 2 on the WiiMote and it continued.

    Trust me, I have tried countless simple tutorials. I followed the tutorial from the link you sent me and once again like all other times, it freezes on the screen where it warns me about the software must not be sold, etc. I even made sure to turn off WiiConnect24, bought a new SD card (Sandisk 2GB)\, formatted it to FAT(default) which is the equivalent to FAT16 on Windows XP/Vista. I followed a well organized tutorial by Gisel as well and when I get to the wadding part it freezes on the wad screen. [​IMG]

    maybe updating to 4.1 would do the trick, also make sure your wifi is working correctly

    I already tried this one twice and after the scam warning pit goes to black; and freezes there. Honestly, the tutorial that I've gone the furthest with is as follows:




    STEP ON COPY BB CARD 1 TO SDCARD OVERWRITE EVERYTHING MAKE SURE WII IS ON WIFI
    SELECT THE 1ST OPTION LET IT RUN AND FINISH

    [BB CARD 1: Private folder & Boot.dol[]

    STEP AFTER THAT IS DONE ERASE SDCARD AND COPY BB CARD 2 TO YOUR SD CARD RUN IT
    THE WAD MANAGER IS BASED ON IOS35 BUT IT SHOULD SAY USING IOS35-2334312 OR SOME
    SCRAMBLED NUMBERS ANYWAY INSTALL IOS35-64-1040 WAD EXIT WAD MANAGER THEN RUN IT
    AGAIN THIS TIME INSTALL CIOS249REV9.WAD AFTER THAT INSTALL INSTALL NGL-YADA.WAD
    THIS IS NEO GAMMA AUTO BOOT CHANNEL I MADE WHEN IT'S DONE EXIT WAD MANAGER

    [BB CARD 2: Private folder, Boot.dol, & Wad folder]*******THIS IS THE PIONT WHERE THE WAD MANAGER ACTUALLY LOADS BUT FREEZES. ALL I SEE IS A WHITE BAR AT THE TOP THAT SAYS "WAD Manager V1.3" and to the extreme right it says Teknoconsolas. Underneath that bar is all black.*******

    STEP THREE ERASE SDCARD AND COPY BB CARD 3 TO YOUR SDCARD RUN IT YOU WILL SEE
    WANINKOKOS REV14 INSTALLER POPUP FOLLOW THE PROMPTS IT WILL ASK WHICH IOS TO
    USE MAKE SURES ITS IOS249 HIT A SELECT WAD INSTALLATION AND IT WILL SAY APPLYING
    PATCHES WAIT FOR IT TO FINISH WHEN IT SAYS PRESS ANY BUTTON TO RESTART TAP A
    AND YOUR DONE YOUR 4.0 WII IS SOFT MODDED

    HELP!!! AGHHH! I have taken everyone's advice and tips as well as every simple tutorial out there. The only thing I haven't tried is upgrading to 4.1.

    i have modded like 10 wii's with that guide and all of them have had a serial number lu65 or higher without a problem. use the link i gave you and don't skip a step.update to 4.1 since you are already on 4.0 then start the guide again.

    Try using loadmii then downgrade to 3.2 which is safe because you are below LU64 use anyregionchanger 1.1a mod5. Then use hackmii installer beta2.

    Have you disabled WC24 like someone suggested earlier?

    Also, if all else fails, load the HackMii Installer with Smash Stack instead.

    Just ignore everything all people say use this guide, use that guide, downgrade or whatever. If you are not prompted to press 1(is it 1?) in the hackmii installer, you have some problem, and it will occur eventually again when you do other stuff, so you wouldn't gain anything.

    Did you test with ALL wifi and wiiconnect24 options turned off? And did you wait at least 2 minutes in each test? (it should be ~30 seconds, 2 min to be sure)

    And also do not use any guide that downgrades anything else than IOS15. Notdvdx is an example for IOS35 downgrade, avoid that too. Downgrade may work on your Wii, but the best is to burry the downgrade crap as it's 1. not necessary and 2. won't work on all Wiis(and is VERY dangerous on the Wiis it does not work on).

    PS: Do you use a LAN adapter or do you have anything plugged into the usb or GC ports? If yes, unplug that all
    PPS: Do you hardsync your Wiimote?

    Okay, so it seems as though I should update to 4.1. How would I go about doing that?

    Also, I did turn off the wiiconnect24.

    The tutorial that you mentioned worked on 10 wii's doesn't work for me. It freezes up after the scam popup. I have not skpipped a single step. Bannerbomb seems to wor;k but Hackermii doesn't. I used the latest Hackermii installation and even used version 2.0 and failed again.
