Wii 4.3u will not letterbomb or use smashstack hacks, please help!
I am having trouble trying to install the Homebrew channel. I am not a newbie, but just new to the Wii hacking. That being said, i am using system menu 4.3u , and i checked my MAC address twice and wrote it down, etc etc.. I first tried using the Smash Stack Hack, to no avail, i followed the instructions, formatted my SD card correctly, erased all the stages, and i copied the files over to ROOT on SD and when i go back to the game and reset it, back to stage builder, nothing happens... it just tries to have me create a new stage.. no code is read from the card. ** i also tried 3 different SD cards, all under 2gb, different brands, etc.. so it isn't that either** . Normally, my memory cards work fine in the Wii, so i know it is not the slot that is damaged..
Second, I tried the new letterbomb hack.. i typed in my MAC address correctly, and downloaded the bundled Hackmii onto a newly formatted SD card (all 3 of them i tried), and i picked the correct 4.3u i have, and when i inserted the SD card and powered up the Wii, there is no message waiting for me.. i checked every day from 2 weeks ago until next month lol. ...and yes i checked my system date and time were correct and i am in the correct country, etc..
As i said, i am experienced with software, hardware, but just not the Wii, so the basics i understand... What might be the problem?? any help is appreciated!
Are your SD cards SDHC or just SD?

same problem different issue
Hello, i had my wii hacked for about 2 years, my son updated to version 4.3U and lost everything, had my kingston 2gb sd card formated, done all the steps to the letter, and for some reason it dosent pick up the file, (letterbomb), time date etc are correct, Wii updated, no nunchuck connected, all the props. i figured that the Sd card died, got 2 new more, one 2gd microsd duracell with sd card holder, also kodak 4gb sd card but none work. i fomated like they say, done everything but i most be missing something, can some one help me, single mom 3 kids and no Wii, im loosing it!!!. please help.
I too am having an issue with letterbomb email not being there for 4.3U. I've softmodded one Wii already with the same SD card I'm using so I know it's not the SD card. Time and date are correct. Any info wil be helpful.
Solved to me
I figured out what was going on. I took a look at the SD card slot and noticed that one of the little sticks that make contact with the SD card was broken (the last one on right side I think it is number 9) , so I put some copper on the SD card in order to make contact with the slot and DONE! letterbomb appeared. I did this because I didnīt want to open my wii.
T ~ nice work with the copper. I am a complete moron. haha! at least I can laugh at myself now. For some odd reason, I could not figure out why the card
slot seemed very snug and unresponsive when I put the memory card in. I was trying to use the TOP loading memory card slots (where the Gamecube controller ports are), and not the one in the front behind the little window that i never knew was there (hey, I said i was new to the Wii). Once i figured that out, it loaded letterbomb without fault on my 1gb sd card (sandisk).
It was been happy gaming hacking the Smash Bros Brawl files and putting the old NEs and SNES library on memory cards and playing all those old games! Good luck to everyone, I pray no one is as ignorant as I was!
