    best course of action

    sorry for bugging you guys with a noobish question but looking at all the tuts, posts etc. its a little confusing as to what i should do. ive done a couple of wiis back with the twilight hack but havent done one in awhile. i picked one up off craigslist for cheap last night for my son and i want to get it set up as well. my question is, its on menu 3.4u right now, my only sd card is an 8gb and it doesnt see it. should i go to 4.1u so it will see the card? and if so, how should i mod it from there. i guess what im asking is whats my best course of action here to get the thing modded. thanks!

    Best course would be to get an SD card that is not SDHC, that way the system can read it and you don't need to upgrade.

    Second best course would be to upgrade to 4.1 and do the bannerbomb hack

    Updating to 4.1U might enable the Wii to see the 8GB card but it might not actually work with homebrew as that still has limited SDHC support in many applications.

    There's a tutorial for you, which will come in handy http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    unfortanetly getting ahold of another sd card isnt easy right now. if i do the upgrade to 4.1 then bannerbomb are there any downsides?

    thanks for the quick reply by the way

    Not really however Like my buddy T said we can't be 100% sure that the sdhc card you have will work with some hombrew apps, including the hackmii installer which is needed for bootmii and the hbc to be installed.

    Check this out and see if your card is on the list

    SDHC Class 6 GB 008 Transcend Didn't Try Yes (But only after I click on Reload)

    SDHC cards will not work with twilight hack because the twilight hack was permantly patched in system menu 4.0 which is the first system menu to read sdhc cards (sdhc being 4gb-32gb).

    The clicking reload means when you boot up the HBC your apps may not appear until you click the home button and select reload from the list. I have a transcend 16gb class 6 and have never had that issue, so i doubt you will if you use the latest HBC version.

    You've got nothing to lose really by giving things a go. If you have to buy a 2GB Sandisk SD card then you'll be just a few dollars/pounds/euros etc worse off.

    Yes this site has buches of them. Softmod Guide will walk you through the process but also read this faq as it will only help you in understanding what you are doing.
