I am trying to softmod a 4.3U system menu wii. Letterbomb is not showing up in message center.
So I went to try wiibrand. It is not working. Telling me the remote server returned an error: (460) Restricted. Error downloading wiibrand.exe from dl.dropbox.com...
I can't find any solutions for this wiibrand problem here. I have tried searching elsewhere, but many things are on the another site site and my ip is blocked from there (ISP issue, I guess?)
Is your system date set correctly? are you supplying the correct MAC adderss and system region to the letterbomb web site?
Are you using a 2gig card, FAT32 formatted (we recommend you use this to format: http://url.llaffer.com/sdformat as full erase, not as quick)?
Did you properly extract the archive so you have a "private" directory on the SD card's root (among other files and directories)?
I have completed chapter 1 of the Softmod Any Wii guide. Everything worked great. In the begining of chapter 2 there is a link to ModPack.zip that isn't working for me. Is there another source for that file? My Wii has 4.3 and my lap top is running Windows Vista Basic.
I have read the entire guide several times before beginning and have done many searches relating to my problem.
Is your system date set correctly? YES
are you supplying the correct MAC adderss and system region to the letterbomb web site? YES
Are you using a 2gig card, FAT32 formatted (we recommend you use this to format: http://url.llaffer.com/sdformat as full erase, not as quick)? I used SDFormatter V2, which was linked to this guide the first time. I am trying again.
Did you properly extract the archive so you have a "private" directory on the SD card's root (among other files and directories)? There is no "private" directory in the archive I received. I will look into this. (there are 8 files showing up 1A3EA3FE.000, readme-hbc.txt, README-BootMii.txt, README.TXT, BOOT.ELF, CREDITS.TXT, APACHE-2.0.TXT, LICENSE.TXT - none are in folders) I am using PeaZip to extract. Will see if something else works differently.
Thank you for your assistance. I will post if I make any progress.
Success! Using 7.zip File Manager, I was able to properly extract the archive to the SD Card. Now I had a "private" directory. Back to the WII, Letterbomb message appeared and I am on my way.
Thank you so much for your assistance!
I am using the letterbomb for 4.3U.
I did everything and was able to produce the letter bomb but when it loaded it just stood saying
SD card detected
boot.elf not found (-1) trying boot.dol
bot.dol not found (-1)
USBGecko not found
No code found to load, hanging
From the looks of this, Its looking for the boot.elf code but its not finding it. Did I miss a step, or is it the SD format? I used the SD software in this post
The boot.elf file is the hackmii installer and should be on the root of your SD card. If for some reason it didn't download correctly, you can get it from any of the other exploits in the first post (except from wilbrand).
Or if you re-do the letterbomb web page information, make sure the "include hackmii installer" is checked.

there are alternate locations to get these files. Check back a few pages for the last time this was mentioned to see where these alternates are, or someone may re-post them here as a reply. :)
Alright, so I got the Homebrew going. HBC was installed successfully but Bootmii had this besides it -The installed boot1 version prevents a boot2 install
This step said "Install Bootmii as Boot2(boot2 may not be available, IOS installs automatically)" When I tried to installing bootmii, I saw that the IOS was automatically installed as the instruction said because there was an option to uninstall the IOS. I just left it like that and went on to part 3 in chapter 1 to try and make a NAND backup. As soon as I launch Bootmii from the HBC the screen goes black and the wii flashes its blue light. I dont think its supposed to do that but I tried the power-reset code anyways. I believe this step is not working for me, am I supposed to move on to the-Alternative to nand backup, if you can't make one now -
or is there a way to fix it and make the bootmii work?
I think since you skipped installing bootmii, you didn't get the next option: "Prepare the SD card".
That is a menu option that you have to select to get files ready on the SD card in order for bootmii to be run from HBC.
Don't skip steps. The guide is designed to overwrite anything you may have, safely. The guide assumes you've preformed all previous steps and not skipped anything.
