    This is my 3rd wii softmod and my 2nd using this guide.

    I have a Wii 3.1u that is a virgin.
    Im at chapter 1 and using the 3.0-4.1 Bannerbomb v1 method

    I have 350 free blocks of nand space, Nothing plugged into wii and a SD card (2gb) formatted to FAT-32 (i used the format tool provided but that seemed to only format to FAT, but i have tried both ways with not luck)

    So i downloaded the "WiiMod-58-61_Hackmii_1.1.0_BB1.zip" and extracted to sdcard.
    When i go into channels then SD it ask it i want to load boot.dol
    I say yes and it pops up another screen very quickly then the screen goes black and nothing loads.
    I have tried all the alternate files B, C, D and E
    I think C and E actually locked up the device when i clicked SD in channels. Didnt even give me an opportunity to click yet to load boot.dol

    So i am stuck. I cannot get WiiMod to load. What can i do?
    Try reformatting the card again, this time to fat16/32 through your computer.(Make sure to do a full format, Not a quick format.)
    If you can...try a different sd card.

    Thank you very much for the quick response.

    I went out and purchased a brand new sdcard (2gb) only brand they had was transcend

    It was already formatted to FAT so i placed the "WiiMod-58-61_Hackmii_1.1.0_BB1" files to root and give the same error
    When i choose SD under channels it asks if i want to load, i say yes, and black screen. Im waiting about 30 seconds. is that long enough?

    Also i tried to format (not quick format) to FAT32 and do the same process and still same thing. Black screen after asking me to load and I choose Yes

    I also bought a Sandisk 4GB sd card but its SDHC. Should I try that?



    Never had this issue before.

    Also, i did not try the B, C, D, E alternates. Should I have?

    UPDATE:
    I tried B, C, D, E alternates. And non of them work either

    You cannot use an SDHC card. MUST be 2Gb(sandisk or kingston recommended). I use a micro - SD adapter, but this isn't recommended. But it's worked on 4 Wii's

    How long do you wait on that screen? I don't recall how long it takes, but it isn't quick by any means.

    Okay, well i figured out that screen is for Hackmii to install BootMii and homebrew. And i got that to load but have not done it yet. Had to use Hackmii v 1.0 and not v1.2

    But the problem is i cannot get the Wiimod to load so i can install the IOS58 and IOS61 wad's.

    When i place the files from "
    WiiMod-58-61_Hackmii_1.1.0_BB1.zip" onto my sdcard its readying the boot.dol to run wiiMod BUT it just goes to a black screen. Is this necessary?

    If waiting doesn't fix it, there is a guide foe getting around the HackMii scam freeze. Search for it on the forums (I'd kink you, but I'm on my iPod).

    Okay a little more progress..

    I am still under chapter 1, part 1

    I tried doing this method Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed


    I was able to install homebrew channel, and once inside it i try to load wiiMod and the screen just goes black. Same result i encountered when trying to load wiimod from boot.dol

    Do i have to run wiiMod to load those 2 wad's? Is there a different version i can try?

    The problem is wiiMod. I can not get it to load on my wii to install those 2 wad's..


    Also, sorry for my delayed responses. It keeps telling me my post have to be approved before they will post. So posts i have done a few moments ago are not posting


    No i see this user is having the same issue and he was told to do update to 4.3

    Should i do that?

    You should never have to update. All you need is in the first post in this thread. I've modded 4.2's and 4.3's with no trouble. I've used Banner bomb once, Letter bomb twice, and the Smash stack solution twice.

    Hi

    I have just tried to softmod my wii and I am having problems.

    I was following this guide. I have version 3.1E at the moment.

    For Chapter 1 of the guide, I already had homebrew channel installed from before. Therefore, I used the part that says softmods with installed Homebrew.

    Everything worked fine and I moved on to the chapter 2. I got to the part where I have to install all the WADS. I verified sums to make sure everything is fine. Now when I try to install them WADS, they give an error message. Not all of them give an error message but some do.
    Therefore, I am stuck and unsure on what to do next. The error message I get says: "Error! (ret= -2011)

    In order to find out what is wrong and debug this problem, I downloaded sysCheck. But when I try to load sysCheck it says "failed to get TMD size for IOS61".

    I am stuck and I have no idea what to do next. I followed all the intructions correctly so I am not sure what could be wrong.

    Please help.

    Thank you
