    Hi all,

    First, I am new to Wii stuff and want to install HBC.

    I just bought a new Wii today (in US) and my son did an update on the system when tried to connect to the internet.
    The menu shows 4.2U now (not sure what it was before the update).

    I tried "bannerbomb alpha - v2" from http://bannerbomb.qoid.us/index.new.php, downloaded files as instructed and copy them to my SD card,
    but it doesn't work.

    My problem is that after I put the SD card into Wii, the Wii neither freeze nor pop-up dialog, instead it goes to SD card menu and
    shows an SD item (?) with "Move", "Copy", and "Erase" options.

    I guess it didn't recognize the boot.elf file.

    I searched the Forum and seems anyone can have the HBC installed but me.

    Thanks for any help!

    try deleting everything on the card and using the modify.zip from xzxero's guide(you need to send an email to the address on the guide and you will get the file in your email, make sure to check your spam folder if you don't see it in your inbox)......extract the entire file to the sd card and follow the guide located here http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171901 ...if you follow it step by step you should be good and going in no time.

    Also you might want to post what sd card you're using.... manufacturer, size, etc

    Hi longtom1,

    Thank you very much. I selected the little sd card on the main menu and I can install HBC now.

    Best regards,

    I guess I just assumed since he said he went to the sd card menu that's what he was talking about.

    I'm not getting anything showing up in SD card menu. Ive formatted my Sandisk 2gb to FAT32 and started again. It says 'loading from SD card' then it just goes to blank SD menu background, no freezes, meesages or anthing. Any suggestions?

    Sorry to disappoint you, but Im no idiot and know the difference between the data management menu and the SD card menu. Ive followed the guide as per bannerbomb homepage http://bannerbomb.qoid.us/index.new.php, but nothing happens.

    Ive modded several Wii's and am no noob, please don't assume as its the mother of all fuck-ups

    So much for Mr 'I already know that they're trying the BBv1 method instead'. Can anybody else offer any advice?

    Did you try clicking on the sd icon, and then inserting the card. Worked for me that way.

    Inserted the card before AND after on the SD Menu, nothing. One thing I forgot to mention, my 4.2E system was updated via Zektor's guide (i.e unofficially), would this have any bearing on this?
