R u using one of the 4.2 guides files?
My problem is that I had a softmodded Wii but after trying to update my mods, every homebrew that i had stopped working, including the homebrew channel. Everything was a complete mess so I updated my Wii to 4.2U and tried using Bannerbomb to reinstall the Homebrew channel and everything. Once i inserted my SD card and loaded it in my Wii, a popup asking me if i want to Load boot.dol/elf. I click yes and it loads for a moment before it ends up with a black screen. Nothing pops up afterwards and im wondering if there is some way i could fix this issue. I've tried 2 other versions of Bannerbomb but so far, the two other versions that i've tried freezes my wii right when i try to load my SD card. Now im wondering if i skipped a step somewhere or if not, if there is there a way to resolve this issue.
Actually, im using several guides. The two that i am mainly using are called Complete Softmod Guide and another is called Softmod for ANY 4.2 Wii! by shadowsonic2. I followed both of the tutorials untill i reached the first stage where it says to put in SD card and install homebrewchannel/bootmii through bannerbomb. Again, after clicking yes to run boot.dol/elf, i end up with a black screen.
Use one guide only. Shadow Sonics is a good one. Some things you can try...
try a different version of bannerbomb bannerbomb Also take the sd out, go to wii settings, data management, channels, , insert the sd then click the sd tab and load it that wayGo into Settings, Data Management, Channels, SD Card. Give that a shot instead of clicking the sd icon on the main wii menu. Ensure you're using a 2GB SD card. Not microSD or SDHC. Format it before putting the files from the guide on there and make sure you turn connect24 off.You can use bannerbomb to launch DOP-Mii and install an unpatched ios36. After that bannerbomb will be able to launch the hackmii installer and you'll be able to have the latest hbc.All quotes from Junkmail. I would think it has to do with having a patched IOS36.For those who's bannerbomb freezes, format your sd, put these files on it, and launch dop-mii the same way you would bannerbomb. Install a fresh ios36 without the patches and then run the other bannerbomb again to get the hackmii installer to load to get the latest hbc. Download what you need HERE

Damn I suck!!!!
There are only 3 versions to choose from since im in version 4.2U. Only the first one (abd6a v2) works while the other two wouldnt get pass loading from the SD card. Ive tried to load it from Settings, Data Management, Channels, SD Card but it wouldnt it wouldnt ask me if i wanted to load boot.dol/elf. I will try to research on how to lauch DOP-Mii from Bannerbomb. I am using a micro SD card and im thinking this might be the problem why it wouldnt load after clicking "yes" to load boot.dol/elf. Does it really matter which card i use? Thanks!
Yes in some cases it matters. I would first Try a regular SD 2GB or less. Then if no luck try to install unpatched IOS36 with DOP-Mii.
To load Dop-mii VIA bannerbomb download the above pack and backup and format your SD card.Extract and Copy all files to the root of your SD card. Insert the SD in the Wii and load the same way you would bannerbomb. With the SD card Icon.
Damn I suck!!!!
Alright, I am gonna order a new sd card and if that doesnt work, i will try DOP-Mii. Thanks a lot!
