Just follow the softmod any wii guide in my signature below
soft modded a WII for a friend a while ago following the guide and all worked perfect. Wii came back to me because the dongle for Skylanders didn't work (tried all settings). Same problem occured with one of my own Wii's so I did a new softmod on our Wii and everything worked fine. The Wii from friend could not be modded again, letterbomb doesn't work, Wilbrand method doesn't work, disc exploid: after inserting disc LEGO Indiana Jones WII wants to uptdate but update doesn't work, official update from Nintendo failes , Priiloader can not be activated, HBC is only accesable trough USB GX loader that still workes (only 1 channel on HBC - USB GX loader). So the question is, how can I softmod the Wii again, maybe using the HBC via USB GX loader if I can install anything on it?
Along with Pob3008, jump to the section titled:
Part 1- Launch Hackmii Installer
As of hackmii 1.1.0, ios58 will be installed prior to hbc install for all wiis 4.2 and less.
Below you will find many methods for loading the hackmii installer. Bannerbomb is best and is supported on 3.0-4.2 wiis.
Choose the method compatible with your wii.
Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installedIf you already have a softmod with HBC installed, you can update your softmod with this guide.
Note: 4.3 wiis can skip installation of ios58 and 61, and simply load Hackmii from the HBC.
Backup and Format your sd-card
Extract WiiMod-58-61_Hackmii_1.1.0 to sd:\
Load the HomeBrew Channel
Launch WiiMod - WiiMod will load
-Select Wad Manager -Press A
-Press 1, -press A -Install all wads
-IOS58 and IOS61 will install
-Press "any button" to continue
-Exit WiiMod to go back to the Homebrew Channel
-Select hackmii_installer_v1.0 - Press A to Launch
-Hackmii Installer Loads
...Continue from there through the entire wii guide and if you have any problems feel free to repost straight back to this post
Skeptical?Everytime I update u on a post, I download ALL of the files I need to help you install, and head straight to my wii to test them... I put my system at risk to help you out, so if I seem unsure, I'll get there... Don't criticize.
<----Hit the "Thanks" button if I've offered some helpful advice! W00t!
Thanks, but HBC can only be started after starting USB GX Loader from the WII menu, on the start page of USB GX loader is a button to "start HBC" but there is only one button on the HBC -> USB GX Loader
so no WIImod to start Wad manager to install wads
Wii is on running on 4.3E tried in the past and now again the 4.3 Letterbomb method with following result on screen HackMii Installer V1.0, This installer can NOT continue. There is no usable or vulnerable IOS installed on this Wii …………. If this is already the latest version ….. Also tried then and again the Lego Indiana disc exploid, after inserting the disc the Wii asks to update the software that doesn't work. Even built in a drivekey with the same result.
Many thanks for the fast replies but still can't get the Wii modded
