    Unable to install HomeBrew Channel on 4.0U. Pls help!

    Hi, I just bought my Wii yesterday. It has version 4.0U and serial starting with LMK but US version.

    Tried the below method recommended by Dogeggs and initially the installer showed this message:
    "no vulnerable IOS found, cannot install"

    Do these steps to get HBC on your Wii It will work on all Wiis regardless of serial number or system menu version. Have a read up on it here before you start.
    If you get any errors then you may not have your card formatted correctly, use this tool to do it.

    This also works on 4.1

    Make sure WiiConnect24 is off as it can interfere with the bannerbomb hack

    TAKE OUT ALL GAMECUBE MEMORY CARDS/CONTROLLERS

    THIS WILL WORK ON ALL WiiS INC LU64+

    Serial location: Click here

    1: Download this rar and unpack it onto root of an SD card.

    2: Put the SD card in wii, go to Wii options, then go to Data Management > Channels > SD Card, then you will get a message saying "Load boot.elf?" , select 'Yes' and the Hackmii installer will run.

    3: See if you can install bootmii as boot2, if you can, install it, otherwise skip it.

    4: Install Homebrew channel.




    After which i tried the below method:

    Go to Data Management on your wii menu
    then choose Channels followed by SD

    Choose "Yes" to load boot.dol

    LoadMii will then load.

    Press "A" on the WiiMote.

    Go down to DowngraderIOS35.dol and run it by pressing "A" on the WiiMote.

    Choose downgrade IOS35 and then let it do its buisness, then choose exit dontinstall the patchmii or dvdx

    You'll be back in LoadMii now.

    Go down and run Wad Manager 1.4 by pressing "A" on WiiMote.

    Just select normal settings (don't change IOS)

    Install IOS35.wad.

    Exit Wad Manager 1.4 by pressing "HOME"

    You'll be back in LoadMii.

    Run Wad Manager again, when it asked what IOS to use Select IOS35

    Now Install the CIOSv7.wad.

    Press "Home" to exit.

    Run Wad Manager again, when it asked what IOS to use Select IOS249.

    Install IOS36.wad & HBC.wad

    Exit Wad Manager 1.4 by pressing "HOME"

    Now restart Wii by holding the power button (pressing the home button does not seem to work)

    Homebrew channel should now be installed


    After downgrading IOS35, and where it says: Just select normal settings (don't change IOS), my default IOS was IOS249. I chose this to install IOS35.

    But when i returned to LoadMii, ran Wadmanager again this time when it asked what IOS to use, I selected IOS35, the system and my controller just hangs.

    I restarted the Wii, downgradeed IOS35 again, selected IOS249 as default again & installed IOS35 again. This time i also installed CIOSv7.wad.

    After which when i tried to select IOS35 again it hangs. When i restart Wii and tried to select IOS249, it also hangs.

    When i retried the method with hackmii installer, after the screen pops up after asking whether to install and i clicked Yes, the disclaimer comes up but it just hangs there without proceeding further.

    Pls help!

    Thanks, messie. I did search the forum but seemed like I ran in circles and could not find the solution.
