    So I decided to try installing the HBC on my newly acquired wii, only problem was it was 2.0u. Being the noob I am I took the guess without researching first that perhaps updating it would do it by firm wear release at a time. Needless to say it didnt [​IMG]

    What are my choices for booting backups now that have a low chance to brick my machine. And do I have any use for zelda: twilight princess anymore?

    If you're on 4.0 without the HBC installed then currently there is nothing you can do.

    Your better off chipping your Wii anyway...

    Get full support of backups, you'll be able to put HBC on with a chipped Wii on 4.0, plus you can use the USBLoader then too!

    Yes, you can load the HBC with a modchip on 4.0

    zidane: USBloader won't work on 4.0 wii that wasn't softmodded before then. You have to be able to install a custom IOS (either 222 or 249) which is impossible if you didn't have a custom IOS installed on your wii BEFORE updating to 4.0
