Off to a good start - bannerbomb freezes my wii.
So I finally decided I would softmod my wii, and read many guides on the subject. (skimmed through big portions, as they were talking about a state my wii hadnt gotten into)
Most guides recommended bannerbomb. Ive tried about 10 versions, and my wii simply freezes when its reading my sd card. Did I miss something? Am I doing anything wrong?
Here's the short list of what I did/useful info
-Formatted my sd card to FAT32.
-Unzipped the bannerbomb file(s)(all the versions, as well as others on the bannerbomb website) recommended by the "Softmod any Wii" guide onto my newly formatted sd card.
-The first file doesn't read and doesn't freeze my wii, and the other versions freeze it.
-My wii is an old one. Haven't quite figured out what a 'virgin' wii is, but I haven't modded it, or even tried 'till now.
Its a 2006, white wii, with 2.1e firmware.
-My sd card was recently bought. Its a 2gb sandisc sd card.
again, am I missing something? Is it the firmware version? Or did I completely miss a step?
*Edit. So Im pretty sure its the firmware version, and that it needs to be between 3.1 and 4.1 for bannerbomb to work. Should I find another way to hack my wii, or simply update it? and how should I go about updating it? find it online, or use a game?
(Could I use a downgrading tool to actually update my wii?)
