    Homebrew Channel launches, apps dont appear....

    Ok, I homebrewed my wii about a year ago. Everything has been working pretty good. We use WiiMC 3000x more than we play games, actually...

    Today I came home and the kids were complaining that the wii was broken.

    Every time they launched the HBC, none of the apps showed up. The Channel seemed to work ok, I was able to exit out of it clicking the Home button, like normal.

    Prior to me coming home, the kids had been swapping out the SD cards with the SD cards from their DSi's to look at the pictures they've taken. I'm wondering if its possible that something got corrupted or just happened because of that.

    Anyway, I've copied everything to a new SD card and get the same result. The card shows up fine on my laptop, and I'm able to manipulate the data, but when I put it into the Wii, launch HBC - nothing, no apps. Just the screen with the bubbles.


    Any ideas?

    I've probably forgotten some info, so here's some:
    IOS61 v. 21.29
    HB v 1.0.8
    Wii Menu version 4.2U

    Any help would be greatly appreciated......

    Is the SD card locked?
    Is HBC set to load from USB? (to check click 1 and then pick the SD card option)
    Is the SD card in the right way? (i did this once)

    1. nope.

    2. I'm pretty sure its not. I've launched HBC before when the SD card wasn't inserted (damn kids) and actually it ran exactly as the problem I've stated.

    3. heh heh triple checked that. with both cards.

    woopsies, i think i messed up trying to explain number 2, but is it set to load apps from usb? does the wii recognize the sd through the sd card icon (on the wii menu system menu 4.1 and above)? I do fear they may have messed up your SD card slot, but lets hope not.

    Something may have happened to the sd slot on the wii. Check in data management to see if the wii sees an sd card in there at all.

    Crap. I put a different SD card, from my camera in the SD slot and it wasn't recognizing the card.

    I think the kids mucked up the slot.


    *sigh*

    Do you guys know if this could be fixable?

    I do think you can buy a new one and put it in there but you may have to solder/desolder some stuff. Ask Bad_AD, Streamlinehd, or krafter about your problem and see what they say. Leave a visitor message on their page.
