Menu 4.0U - Need help please
Hi I'm new here. Sorry if this has been resolved or it's a stupid question:
I have a 4.0U Wii that I just bought. Following many different tutorials (I'm not sure which ones anymore) I used Banner Bomb, and eventually got the HBC installed. Since then, I cannot get anything to work.
There is soooo many answers out there but I cannot seem to find the right answer to my problem.
I just want to be able to load backups. I have read you have to downgrade to 3.2, but using a cIOS downgrader I downloaded, it just resets the console. I try to install WADs and I get a "ERROR (ret = -2011)"
I THINK I installed cIOS_rev9. Maybe I need to upgrade to 10? Although I'm not even sure I got 9 installed right.
Like I said I am new here and to Wii modding, but I am not without experience in doing things like this. Any help or pointers would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
EDIT: Maybe I can reformat and start over with a GOOD tutorial? How can I tell if/what cIOS is installed?

Anyone? Please at least confirm that I can format in the Wii menu and start over? I'm not gonna do that if all it does is delete the HBC. I would like to start from the beginning and find a better Tutorial but I don't want to mess things up more.
I'm so confused. Xbox 360s are so much easier IMO. Please?
Please help. Maybe just point me in the right direction? I'm lost and there's soo so so so much info out there and I don't know what is good for me and what's not.

You and me are in the same boat, my friend.
I recently got a new laptop with an SD card reader and I remembered the Wii modding scene and thought I'd try to jump on board. But everywhere I turn the information is incompatible and outdated. I can't seem to find a single universally updated source.
I too have 4.0U and I have the Homebrew Chanel installed via BannerBomber but I can't seem to get things installed because I keep getting the same error as mentioned above. I'm not sure but I think my problem is that I need to downgrade but when I run the tool it just freezes at a black screen. Any help or information is greatly appreciated.
http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...n-4-0-wii.html use this ... it worked for me! and i was gettin the same error when i first started tryin to mod my wii until i found this!
nice link, thanks. Hopefully I can find some answers there
I'm gonna try that tomorrow. Thanks.
let me know if you find anything, Pete.
I probably won't have time to delve too deep until the weekend
Worked perfect, Otep! Thanks cbjones and the person who made that guide. So easy except I couldn't install Starfall, but I just had to run cios_fix.wad and the IOS downgrader again and it worked perfectly.
