I just installed Bootmii via this guide: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...beginners.html
In step 3 it told me to reboot the Wii and when I did all that I get is a black screen.
What should I do?
What do I do now and can I still use the softmod guide referenced above?
Sorry if I am made a noob mistake
Yes, that is correct. I haven't tried to turn it off and remove the SD card yet though.
Moved to the bricked section, make a note of where this is moved to.
Remove sd card and reboot. Sounds like bootmii isn't liking your sd card
I did that and then it worked fine. After that I turned it off and put the SD Card back in, turned it on and it went to the regular wii menu again. Do you think that I need to get a different brand SD card. I am using an off brand one from Micro Center.
