    LU51 Wii, System Menu 4.1U (Can I Hack it?)

    Ok, my sister wants me to hack her wii for her. Its an LU51 Wii with system menu 4.1U. Can I hack it the same way I did mine? By using bannerbomb and the hackmii installer to install HBC and bootmii. Also, are there anythings different I should do for this wii than I did for mine? I have an LU32 4.0U wii.

    ... You haven't been reading at all have you? I'm gonna need you to do better.

    Yes. You might have to downgrade the IOS differently using the Trucha Bug Restorer that works for any Wii. I went from a LU52 to a LU51 and had to use that method to get CIOS' on it while the method I used for my original Wii was different and worked for it that same method didn't work for the LU51. The basic base hack procedure of installing HBC, DVDX and Bootmii remain the same using Bannerbomb...unless Nintendo steps it up a notch & comes out with a true major system menu update overnite. Most likely over the next 6 months and some change. Anyway 4.1 is just a touch up bug fix update to 4.0 which had a few bugs other than the main big WSResort one that prompted a revisement.

    Anyway. Don't foreget to read & do your softmodding homework following the directions thoroughly.

    PS: Be careful & don't brick your sisters Wii.

    Nintendo' most inspired core game titles are stuck overseas. Nintendo Of America sux when it comes to the localization of these game titles as they court with their new found casual gamer/soccer mom audience this console generation. Thus indirectly promoting the growth of Homebrewing & basically telling their core audience if they want it, mod chip or Homebrew it. Thanks Nintendo!

    This guide works on all 4.0 and 4.1 regardless of region and serial number

    Angry Unable to to softmod 4.1U with HackMii 0.2

    I did a 'system restore' on a modded wii. Now unable to install homebrew. It started to do an update then it gives an error number of 32017. But now shows Ver 4.1U

    I am using HackMii 0.2 and it fails.
    Error "homebrew channel wii there is no known vulnerable IOS installed on this wii"

    Any thoughts?

    This is because your wii has no IOSs with the trucha bug. This may be a little outdated but should fix the problem:

    Im in the same boat (but my wii is new so I cant do the fix dogegg has), didnt realize that when it said format wii, it just meant delete all wii saved data... I still have preloader .29 though, if anyone has any ideas on how to get homebrew back,

    I received that hackmii installer error when I recently attempted to run the new Hackmii Installer to install the new bootmii/boot2. I knew my Wii had the Trucha bug etc. So I just went back to the very first nand backup I made when my Wii was freshly hacked. Ran the new Hackmii installer while on the installer menu I uninstalled the previous Bootmii/boot2 and then re-installed it again thus being the new Bootmii/boot2 with the fixes then restored my nand back up to the present system nand. That's how I got around that.

    As far as the Official Nintendo 4.1 firmware update problem just update using Waninkoko's updater. I was going to do Nintendo system update one time back when this update first came out last month cause I was having problems with Waninkokos firmware at first and was just gonna re-hack my Wii but then changed my mind. I got that same error code from Nintendo. The official update would get about half way and stop. When I would go in the system settings it would say 4.1U but I knew it hadn't completed. It downloaded just enough to remove Pre-loader 0.29 though. I believe it detected Bootmii/boot 2 and couldn't overwrite it so it wouldn't complete. That's just my theory. I called Nintendo to ask them possibly what could be the problem, I was told that error code was rare and they wanted me to send in my Wi-Fi USB connector and Wii to inspect them. I was like screw that cause at the time I had recently somewhat just got it back from them (letting them know that), but not letting them know I had fully re-hacked it back up to speed and I knew possibly what the problem was. They made a note of the update problem I was having in the computers just in case some problem were to surface pertaining to that later on and I can just send it in to them anytime and they would ship me it back to me ASAP than the normal wait I was told. They probably would've kept my USB connector or something and sent me the lan adaptor. Ha.
