so i reflashed again, using my friends 4.2e nand.bin
i can now use the gamecube controller in bootmii and can load dol files with cboot :)
i think im almost home free
i still have the no signal issue but i guess i should be able to reinstall the relevant wads now.
can anyone advise what wads to use with 4.2e?
4.2e uses IOS70 and Sys Menu v482.
You can get these direct from Nintendo by using NUS Downloader.
thanks for that, i got the wads via nusd as sugested.
i think this wii is cursed.
i can now
use gamecube pad in bootmii and most apps loaded via cboot2
except wad manager :(
i cant believe this, is there another way to reinstall the wads?
WAD Manager is about it I'm afraid.
Do you have a functioning cIOS? That's been known to bomb out wad manager.
i found a custom build of wad manager that adds support for GC controllers and have reinstalled both of the above wads
the system now goes to the H&S screen, syncs with my wiimote (thats new!)
but then goes to black screen (still receiving a signal)
still cant get HBC to go past "no signal" from the bootmii menu
I wonder if HBC is now being removed by 4.2. Internal code in 4.2 looks for HAXX channel and deletes it every time.
You could try booting hackmii installer 1.0.6 now that you have wiimote control.
The black screen after H&S sounds like a banner brick, just without the garbled text you sometimes get.
thanks again, any steps or guide on how to install hackmii from the cboot2 interface.
it comes as a .elf file
Rename it to boot.dol and try.
Failing that use loadmii to boot hackmii boot.elf.
The major problem with cboot2 is the lack of Wiimote support in a lot of apps. Not sure if either of these will work through cboot2 (I suppose I should try using it one day)
lol, ok, used loadmii
installed HBC, am in the HBC now, where to next?
hit "exit to system menu" to see what would happen
back to H&S page with back screen
returned to bootmii, cant load hbc from there
but i can access the HBC by running cboot2 > loadmii > hackmii
lol, this is crazy.
Best fix the banner brick before worrying too much about HBC and bootmii any further. As long as you can launch homebrew then you can do things to repair.
Any ideas which channels/wads you've installed running up to your problem?
