    I've been wondering since I started reading this thread, why would someone want to restore bannerbomb? Once you have softmodded, what use is it?

    Some people may also want to use it for test purposes or as a ''just-in-case'' option.

    AAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! Stuck trying to use "Softmod Any Wii" instructions... black screen
    Sorry for being such a noob, but I've never done any of this before, and I read up on here for a few days first, but...

    I decided to go with the "Guide: Softmod ANY Wii" instructions as they seemed pretty straight forward. I'm on 4.2U with a virgin Wii.

    I did the first step, got the sd card in, and did the wad install.

    Then on step 2, it says:

    Part 2- Install The HomeBrew Channel and Bootmii
    Read the Scam warning and press 1
    It may take a minute or two for the "press 1" to appear- be patient
    Install the HomeBrew Channel
    Install Bootmii as Boot2(boot2 may not be available, IOS installs automatically)
    Prepare the SD-card
    If Step1 fails with error "no vulnerable ios", DO THIS



    Well, let's see... I read the scam installer, pressed 1, and then... well I don't have it in front of me, but it said something like HBC can be installed. Bootmii can only be installed as ios since boot1 version is installed, can't do boot2.

    The curser was on "continue" I think. Up until now, all instructions had been very specific about what button to press... but here, they just say "Install the homebrew channel"

    So I pressed A for continue or whatever... which brought me to another page talking about installing HBC, and cursor now on exit.

    If I was supposed to do something else, I don't know what it is since instructions gave no specifics about how to install...

    ... anyway, the screen has been black for half an hour now with a blue flashing light in the dvd drive.

    I'm afraid to do anything now for fear of causing a problem....

    ... so I'm waiting for advice.

    thx.

    edited to add... I read on here several times that 1 or 2 gb sandisk was best. I used a 1gb sandisk, but I now see that the sd card list only shows 2gb sandisk and above.

    stilll blackscreen...

    still flashing... but I had to remove sd card to see it's specs to check against list.

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaa

    Make a post in that forum and you will get a nice welcome message full of links and information to get you well on your way to safely softmodding your wii.

    Personally, I would recommend that you LISTEN TO WHAT KRANK SAYS< HE KNOWS FAR MORE THAN I DO> Your wii will still play original games. There are guides to get you set up for usb loading. You may be able to play back up disc since your wii seems to be old.

    Yes bannerbomb is your best choice. You don't need to update to 4.1 first either as the guide includes directions for doing that. Read carefully and good luck!
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Personally, I would recommend that you use a game disc to get you up to 4.1 system menu,New Super Mario Bros Wii is one that will work. Then follow the guide. Your wii will still play original games. There are guides to get you set up for usb loading. You may be able to play back up disc since your wii seems to be old.
    meanig use the game and update to 4.1 thru nintendo then hack it or use the smash brothers brawl hack method??? wow you guys respond fast LOL

    No don't update with any game. Just follow the guide as is. You can do that if you like but there is no need, when the guide is done you will have 4.1.
