Homebrew Channel

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I didn't see the issue mentioned anywhere...

I'm trying to softmod a wii and install Homebrew Chanel. For some reason letterbomb is not working and also wilbrand launcher does not give me an exploit.

Tried two different SD cards with letterbomb (of which, one I have used before on a wii), but no luck.

Any tips are very welcome!!!

Verify:

1-That your SD Card is Formatted to Fat32

2-Region/Version is correct

3-MAC Address is correct

4-Date and Time are correct

5-That you are looking at today and the previous days

 

...if all of that is correct, just put the contents of LetterBomb on the SD Root and it should work. GL!

Verified all those steps and no luck...

Could letterbomb be "offline"?

If you were able to download a Letterbox file, then it is online. The exploit is executed without any need for internet access.

Make sure you have a check mark by the "bundle the HackMii installer for me"

 

I would reformat the SD card and start from scratch -->Do not do a quick format; instead, perform a FULL Format!

 

What is the history of the Wii?

  -Can you access the system menu and does it load games from a disk?

  -Are you using a SD card or a SDHC/SDXC?

  -Are you on version 4.3?

 

...here is a guide that I read over along with a few in the forums before I did my first SoftMod:

You might want to try Modmii too, but you will need to update a few things that you can find on the Wiki's or forums.

Also, do a syscheck once you get it going.

I have softmodded the wii before, but wanted to do a reset and start over. Did a factory reset, which went well, but letterbomb didn't work after the reset.

Tried a nand restore, but that basically bricked the wii; after the initial start-up screen, the screen went black after pressing "A". Did a recovery with ohneswazenegger. That revived the wii and  I can get into the normal wii menu, but still no letterbomb

It's running 4.3U and I'm using a normal SD card. I think the card that I'm using, and has worked before, might be broken. Going to get a different one and try again.

When I go to the SD storage menu, and insert an SD card, it tells me "the device inserted in the SD Card Slot cannot be used". I've tried 3 cards now. The last one I tried is a Sandisk 2GB SD card. I'm at a loss here...

I've tried formatting FAT and FAT32

OK... probably against all "rules" I tried to restore my old nand backup again, but this time with succes.

Got my homebrew cannel back and it actually works too, so that's cool.

How do I proceed from here? Install CIO's? wadmanager?

I have a feeling I'm almost there...

I am new ti Wii modding, so I don't have a specific answer for you at this point, but I would suspect that doing a system reset was not the way to go to start from scratch (from what I read).

Unfortunately, you will have to wait for somebody else to respond. I would have just wiped the SD clean and started there and not done anything with a system reset and then update the IOS via wad's and then update apps as needed. Not sure that is the right way to do it, but that is what I have been doing during my trial and error process of getting certain things going ...like WiiFlow and emunand. Soon I may have to ask for help. The rest I have going nice and smooth, but this last thing is a pain in the arse. After jumping on IRC...looks like that topic is not to be discussed for legal reasons.

If you can't get them going, you probably could find a console for under $30 and get going again and then have a side project :P

Good luck and if there is something more that I find out, I will update the post!

I would definitely look over the guide I posted in post #4 ...a lot of info there too! Look at the process below:

Eureka, I've got it working. Wiiflow is installed and the kids are happy.

Summary of what happened;

- after modding the wii a while ago, I decided to do a factory reset

- wii would not get the letterbomb, to get HBC installed

- restored a old nand, which basically (soft)bricked the wii

- did a recovery with ohneswazenegger, still no luck on letterbomb

- tried my old nand one more time, with a different sd card

- Succes; got my HBC back

- Installed Wiiflow and we're good to go!

Conclusion: make sure you have bootmii installed and you have a nand backup!!!!

(I think there's an issue with my sd card reader and luckily with HBC I was able to use USB)

 

Hope this helps someone some day! And thanks XXmodded for taking the time to reply!!!
