    Letterbomb not working, done correctly?

    Ok so I went to please.hackmii.com entered my mac address of my wii and selected the region rightly (4.3u) I attemped this 10 times. I copyed private and boot.elf to my sd card 1gb sd(non micro/hc) and formatted to FAT32 and still no work. I also no i entered the right address and region because i went to wii settings. I then went into my wii message board and no message is there, I went back 3 mouths and none I also inserted my sd card and none. So what do I do now?

    I also waited 2 hours and nothing. :/

    Yep blu I'm on 4.3u.
    The private folder has lots of folders in it then there is a file after so much. I am on my laptop and the wii screen is in my face and I can read it so yes I have the correct wii mac address I checked again. There is a boot.elf in the root of the sd card but I never copied the .txt files to the folder because it says private and boot.elf. I also used a 4gb panasonic class 4 sdhc card (I borrowed it from my friend just now) and its still not working. But ill try it with the bunch of .txt files to see if it will work. Nope still didn't work. But what the problem is, is that im not getting the letter bomb message!

    IT WORKS I HAD TO FORMAT THE WII SYSTEM, IT WORKS NOW!

    Reformat your sd card with panasonic formatting utility (linked in the guide) and try again.

    Well, it's a program to format your sd card properly. And its made by Panasonic. And there's a link in the guide, but spoonfeeding time!

    PanasonicSDFormatter.rar

    Can you verify that you're actually on 4.3? Letterbomb only works on 4.3.

    If you're using a non SDHC card that you formatted with the panasonic tool, and you've supplied your correct MAC address & region, it should work. You should have a private folder (with some stuff in it) a boot.elf and a bunch of .txt files on the root of your SD card once extracted.

    I'd try using another sd card.... installer can be touchy.

    Oh, and for the love of all that is good and holy, stop with the many posts, use the edit button.

    Ok, so I'm having some issues here.. :/ I'm not getting the letterbomb. This is my story:

    - Correct MAC.
    - Correct time and date (tried also day before).
    - Correct Wii v.4.3.
    - Internet connected.
    - Tried to reset Wii system (with and without sd-card).
    - Tried to get Letterbomb from IE10 (modern UI), IE10 (desktop), Chrome - All trying both red and blue wire.
    - Tried playing a game so I get a message in my inbox.
    - Looked all the way to the beginning of 2014, no bomb.

    Why is this not working? The thing is...that I have done this before, and it worked then. Don't remember if I used the same letterbomb thing then, but it should not make any difference. So...help someone?

    Thanks

    did you select the correct region on the web site?

    Did you extract the .zip file that you got to the SD card? or just place the .zip file in the root directory. You should have a directory named "private" and a file named "boot.elf".

    What SD card are you using? We recommend a 2gig max, full size SD card (no minis or micros), Sandisk branded, formatted with this: http://url.llaffer.com/sdformat (full erase, not quick).

    dont know if this helps any, but my sd card slot was broken. it will say its inserted but it doesnt work. i ended up buying a new wii and it worked. but try to put a butterknife in the sd card slot with the sd card inserted (make sure the butterknife is not on the side with the connections though)

    Our guide also is pretty specific advising members to use FULL format - not quick. There seems to be an awful lot of fail in this thread...
