OK I have an early wii, I think it was 2006 or 7 when I got it. It's on 3.0(as I've had no reason to update it) and now bootmii won't work at all. It says "if you paid for hbc it was a scam blah blah blah" and then won't go any further. i've tried using a gamecube controller in port 1, I've tried using my wii mote, I've tried using the face buttons. Nothing works. So then, what's with this whole "oh yeah wii homebrew loaders are a ton better than they used to be." crap that I've read. It seems like their a billion times worse than they were in teh past. Edit: also apaprently they never said "hey by the way this is going to take for a really long time" until one finally did. The letterbomb one told me that, so then I was forced to get 4.3 so whatever I guess, iv'e got no other options then. I guess I can at least feel good that it's usb 2.0 finally I guess which I would've required anyway since I don't want to be using a tiny sd card for most of it.
