    Hi all, I am new here and will be seeking help :-)

    Hey all, I am 31, male, and graduated from a fine university in the Midwest back in 2002 with a BSCE (Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering). So I would like to think I am smarter than your average Joe, given my education...but having said that, I also have met alot of dumb college educated people as well, lol.

    I had my wii since early 2007 and also had HBC for about 6 or 7 months now.

    My new project is to get the USD Loader GX installed. While I am not a complete noob and not a complete idiot, as I have been successful installing the HBC a long time ago. I feel that I will need extra help with my new project.

    My wii has System Menu 4.2U

    When I open the HBC, at the top right corner I see the following two lines:

    IOS61 v21.29

    I know the first line says is that I have HBC version 1.0.6 installed...but the second line about the IOS, I don't understand. Any inputs?

    Also, I have been following this guide here

    BUT, I am stuck on: PART B: The extermination of the evil stub ios249

    I tried the "GET THIS PACK" download link and I also tried the "GET THIS PACK 2" download link....

    I have an official 2GB Wii SD card from Sandisk...when I put the files (seen here)
    root:\00000001\ <-(if available)

    on the SD card, and then place the card in the wii, I start up the HBC....and press the "Home" button on the wii mote...all I get is the following:

    Exit to System Menu

    Now according to the guide, if the wii should boot to bootmii then I just go to step B5....OR...I select bootmii and wait as explained in step B4

    MY PROBLEM is that neither one of these two possibilities happen for me.

    I just sit there looking at my tv that shows the following:

    Exit to System Menu

    Any suggestions? Thanks!
