Homebrew possible after modchip in 4.0???
Really regretted updating my brand new Wii to 4.0 so I guess the only option is to get the modchip to play my backups. Anyway I'm still interested in getting HBC for the VC and Wiiware games so I wonder if it's possible to install HBC in 4.0 if I've already got the modchip... thx

I got a hbc for 4.0 iso, give it a go
Ok...maybe your my saviour.
i've got a WiiKey with 1.9s and Systemmenu 4.0E.
I wanted to install the HBC but i had a old guide wich had "Update the Wii first". After i realised what i had done, it was too late.
Burning now on a Verbatim DVD-R at 2.4 speed with ImgBurn.
It doesn't work. I get an error when I try to lauch it through the disc channel (An error has ocurred).
It gives another error (Wii data is damaged in Dutch). Nothing seems to happen.
Gave it another try while burning with Nero Burning Rom, same result.

I am in the same position as you. I guess our only option is too wait for BootMii. Please share any progress.

No succes so far, but it should be possible to start a dol file from SD, so theortically it should be possible to do something with this.
I'm also on the same boat (wiikey + 4.0, no HBC). I assumed that having a modchip I should be able to force the installation without relying on the TP hack.
Tried the ISO provided by Dogeggs but it's giving an error. After several days looking through several forums it's does not seem possible to re-create any ISO since they all use the trucha signature bug.
I've also tried using SDLoad but apparently that only works on the GC side, so no luck there, it does not seem to be possible to access the Wii side and install the HBC.
As exelinguy says the only possibility right now seems to be bootmii, but who know when that would be available. There is also the bannerbomb exploit on the works, but it's also not clear if it's for real or if it's a buffer overflow hack like the TP.
I'll also keep you posted if I make any progress.

It looks like your stuck for a while...one thing that is bothering me is even if you manage to get hb channel on 4, you still not going to have cIOS249 so not much is going to work...?
Yes, I guess you are right, we will have to wait.
Hi there !
Did anyone have any luck with getting the HBC on a Wii with a Wiikey and 4.0E menu ?
I've been searching everywhere, but soo many people say so many different things... I'm a bit lost here now. Some are talking about downgrading something, and others are saying don't do it.
An ISO (for the modded wii's) that installs everything would be nice... ;-)
Yep...working perfectly Virgin Wii 4.0E with WiiKey.
