Sorry, I don't really have any ideas. I wish I did. A virgin 4.3 wii is only exploitable by installing HBC, then cios via AHBPROT or cboot2. The only other option is casper. Since hackmii is not going to install for you, your only hope is casper. There are many different ways to load it, and 3 different versions. Capser is a boot.elf, so you can load it from any exploit or loader. The only thing you can do is try try try again, then try another way. Other than that, there is nothing else you can do. One would think that if if worked on my wii and worked on your wii, it should work on your friends wii, but not always.
You can also try this, just for testing. ModMii has a hack free casper solution for sneek/uneek. Try to set that up and load it on your wii and your friends wii. It should work on a virgin 4.3 wii. If you can get that going, there is hope. Try a few different sd cards, small ones.
Get casper to do something on your wii and your friends wii. Then wii just need to replace the bootmii_ios.bin with the proper one we like.
@mauifrog I have a 100% chance of playing backup gamesat least thats what Wiidrives says. Thats on my friends Wii, I am trying to softmod still. Are there any guides I could maybe try to look up and follow the guide like Modmii or something? I downloaded that but I am un sure how to use it. I know it has on screen instructions but its confusing for me a little bit lolz maybe because I've been working on this for a while I mean I have been taking breaks. but anywho, I have a San Disk 1GB SD Card I've been using and its been working great on my Wii and my friends Wii, just I can't get Casper to load through Mod Mii v3.1. I did try installing a couple WAD's I don't know if that would inter fear with installing Hackmii through Casper, or boot mii lolz. I'm already kinda lost but I get what to do. Just frustrating a little bit you know what thats probably like after working on something for so long lolz.Anyways, hopefully I can get some more information on what I should do. I may have already made a mistake by installing WAD's when I didn't run casper through bootmii. if theres a way to un-install WAD's that would be awesome because then his Wii would be a Virgin again and I could probably try to get his Wii Softmodded the right way hopefully.-Castwolve89.Code:
Backup / format sd card
extract http://www.mediafire.com/?zwpekt95bxeamm6 to sd:\
Install letterbomb to sd:\
Run letterbomb, casper should load, cboot2 dol loader should load, wiimod should load
Select appmanager and load bootmii_casper.elf
Casper should load, bootmii should load
Make a nand backup and exit to system menu
Run letterbomb again, blah, blah wiimod loads
Extract folders /wad and /app from the modpack and ciospack of the softmod any wii guide
Install all wads per guide
Load the apploader again in wiimod, load priiloader
Now try to run hackmii installer again.
Try loading the boot.elf from sd:\apps\hackmii\boot.elf from the black HBC backup channel
Try loading the bootmini.elf from the bootmii sd loader
*Edit* Okay I found out its not frozen for some reason when I hit the "Power" button I can move left and if I Push the "Reset" button I can click on things? What does this mean??
*Edit 2* Okay some how I can use the "Power" Button to move left, the "Reset" button to click on things. I got it to Backup the Nand. I'm going to edit this again and see how far I get.
*Edit 3* Woot! I got Neogamma and all the wad's installed and I can launch burned games!!! Thank you! I wasn't able to launch Hackmii it gave me that one error about something I forget now and I had to click on Exit but I am able to play burned Games now and I was able to install all the 30 WAD's without problems. and I even got Priiloader installed as well!! I made the Nand backup was like 562Mb's or somewhere around that and backed it up on my computer as well. I need to do that with My Wii still lolz. Thank you for all the help! I got it working!!! and in perfect timing my friend came over and hes playing it now hes so excided lolz hes playing Mario Kart. I have a feeling hes gonna want me to burn all 30+ games I have burned >.< lolz. Anyways I really really thank you for helping me out with this!!!
P.S. Hopefully some of the stuff we talked about will help someone who has the first gen console like my buddy does :)
*Edit* Once more, I'm having troubles launching the Shopping Channel it gives me an error in red letters and this code "205927" I am not sure what this means if you know how I can fix this please let me know.
Sounds like you got the goal. Let me know how it goes. You should be able to easily hack the wii now for backups and such. Now if you can just sweat talk the hackmii installer into loving your. wii.
*Edit* I was also curious if there was a updated version of the Black Water Backup Homebrew Channel? it says its running on 1.0.3 and on My Wii it says 1.1.0. is there any way to update to 1.1.0 from 1.0.3?
I am in the need of wanting to get my buddies Wii running Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3 but I can't because it says I need to go to the Shop Channel and I can't access it because its giving me this error code :(
*Edit* if Anyone knows if there is a possible way to download a WAD file to update Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3 please let me know because that would make things much easier.
Have you tried to read eula in system menu options ?
maybe you can also delete your wii shop account and make new one (in case you didn't bought anything).
