    Is my Wii screwed???

    Well, I had everything on my 4.1U wii. Then I installed a Fake Signed Ios... I think it was ios58. So then, my HBC flipped upside down, and people told me to delete homebrew channel, and reinstall it. Since I had 4.1U, I couldn't use LetterBomb, so I updated my Wii to 4.3U. Though now when I try to install HBC, through Letterbomb, it gets stuck at the Anti-Scam page, where it says Press 1 to continue... So I freaked out, and I decided to format SD card, though that didn't work... Also, I tried a SDHC card, and it doesn't work either... And I formated my wii, since I was afraid some ios was doing this, so now, basically, I have nothing on my wii, the default channels, and Letter bomb won't work. So right now, I can't use Bannerbomb, since I only have Twilight Princess, and that's for 3.X, and mine's 4.3u. And, I have no idea why LetterBomb won't work. Is my wii really screwed?

    installing a fakesigned ios 58??? Why? That is what made HBC upside down. HBC does not like fakesigned ios, the developers did that on purpose.Formatting the wii only clears the save data, it does not change any of your ios. Updating to 4.3 was another mistake, 4.1 is the preferred SM and you could have bannerbombd it. I bet you wish you had found wiihacks before screwing up your wii!

    ANyhow, I guess I should help you at this point

    You need to go to the softmod any wii guide linked in my signature. You may need to find a different sd card too. Standard 2 gb sandisk is the best choice. Hackmii installer is very picky about cards, read the guide and do all of it. You might run into an issue with hbc still being upside down depending on the version number of that patched ios 58 you decided to install.

    NO there are other ways to load the homebrew channel on a 4.3

    have you tried lego indiana or Super smash bros brawl

    with the latest hackmii

    Yes there are other methods to launch the installer. They all still launch the same program and if that installer does not like the card then it does not matter which exploit was used to run it.

    To skellinator, uhmm, I used two cards. a old Kingston 512MB SD card, and a fairly new Sandisk 4GB SDHC card. They both make it to the hackmii screen, where it says press 1. But I can't get pass the screen where it says Press 1. It freezes the screen, and my wiimote light just stays on infinitely. =\.

    sdhc does not usually work. I really think the card is the problem. You could make sure to do a FULL format on the kingston and reload the files to try again though. 512mb will not be large enough to do a nand backup either.

    Well, I did what you said, Full format of SD card ( I removed all apps, and saved on desktop ), and still it freezes on Press 1 to continue... Anyways, Idk what you mean by reloading the files, but I redownloaded them, from Please.hackmii, with the bundle, with correct region, and CAPTCHA. :$ I have no idea what to do now.

    Download THIS and extract it to your desktop. In the apps/MMM folder copy the boot.dol file directly to the root of your SD card (make sure you have all the letterbomb files there as well). Go back to your Wii and launch letterbomb again to see if you can get access to MMM.

    Tried it. I extracted the file, and put the boot.dol in the root of the card. Doesn't work, since wii freezes at the part where it says 'Press 1 to continue', and for some weird reason, different times when I run letterbomb, the top of the screen (some pixels) are either green, purple or rainbow... o-o

    Rename the boot.elf file on your sd to hackmii.elf and try again. (or just move the boot.elf somewhere else other than the root). Running letterbomb should launch the boot.dol in the root of your SD card, giving you access to MMM. From there you might be able to delete and reinstall the offending IOS that is/are causing this issue, if indeed it is an IOS issue.
