    I'm trying to install bootmii , but it keeps saying failed.

    I tried it as boot2 and IOS and it failed both times.

    system is a 4.0 NTSC version.

    is 4.0 the new update?
    I read on the front page of the site that Wii has updated to stop Bootmii and stuff, so if you have the new update, your pretty much screwed

    You probably have the LU64 Serial Wii.

    That's odd, do you have preloader installed?

    There's plenty of guides in the Wii Hacking section, just don't update to 4.2.

    I launched HBC and when I tried to run it , it seemed like it was ok.

    I didn't actually use it , though. I exited it before installing it since I wasn't sure of what I should do next since I can't get bootmii installed.

    Your setup is rather vague. If you have cIOSCORP installed, it will fail.
