    Well, the Lounge is an odd place to post a request for help, but here you go-read through this: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html.

    Because your Wii is 3.4 you won't be able to install bootmii as boot2 only as IOS-less helpful for recovery from a brick. However, you can upgrade to 4.1 in this tutorial aand then install preloader-that will help. There are also links in this tutorial for NeoGamma and USB Loader GX. As you already have HBC and probably some channels/HB apps etc installed, you can skip that step and follow the rest of the tutorial step by step. Good luck.

    Your information is wrong. If just because he has system menu 3.4 does not mean he cant install bootmii as boot2. He could have upgrade from 3.2 to 3.4. Now if his wii was manufactured in the middle of 2008 then he wouldn't be able to install bootmii as a boot2

    Good God-it's still doing it. One more time...thanks, you are correct. I misplaced the word "probably" from my final post and lost that train of thought. I just wanted to warn him of that possibility before delving into the minutae of the softmod tutorial. I had to type that darn post 3 times-something's going wrong with my Netbook. The message keeps going away. Had to type response to you 2 times. Anyway-thanks for the catch.

    Still on my crappy machine-here goes: your HBC is still fine just has nothing to see. You should be able to reformat that SD card to FAT32 and download some HBC apps, install some utilities/games using the HB Browser if you want. Or use another SD card if you want the kids to keep their game saves because they were adorable when you confronted them about the problem:-).

    Once your properly formatted SD has some apps in the Apps folder in root, HBC should see them. WiiBrew

    All the IOS mods you made are still in the Wii, once you installed them using Wad Mgr-you no longer needed the wads on the SD card.

    In case you forgot:Root Directory of SD should have an Apps folder and a Wad folder; I'm sure you had others, but bare minimum here to start.

    With regard to boot2 vs IOS again-while you report your system is 3.4; if you upgraded to 3.4 from 3.2 or earlier you may be able to install bootmii as boot2. This option was blocked with the Wiis issued with 3.3 and up FW in about mid-2008. So, your Dec 2007 Wii has a good chance of being able to install bootmii as boot2-most desirable outcome.

    Ahh ...children what would our lives be without them..more money, less worry, and more free time? Who needs that?
