I can't install the homebrew channel. I had it before and obviously after the stupid update I no longer have it. I have been trying so many different way to get it back nothing seems to work. I keep getting the same error message.
"This installer can NOT continue! There is no known vulnerable IOS installed on this Wii. Please note that we will use a fakesigned IOS due to security reasons. If this is already the latest version... well, suck it."
Is anyone else getting this? How do I get around this? Please help.

Ok maybe I'm confused but what are you talking about?

i'm a little stuck here.
I started following the guide, but it seems to imply some prior knowledge of wii hacking etc. I'm on 4.2E b. It also has a soldered d2pro(?) chip that allows me to play copied games on disk
I'm a total noob at this.
Basically i wanted to watch dvd's on my wii, so after following the start of the guide, i'm at the stage where i've loaded HBC and the other files it says.
BUT then it talks about NAND file backups etc etc and to put it on the same sd card that i used for the HBC install and to free up about 500mb.
Well it didn't state what size card to use at the start, so i'm using a 512mb card (don't have bigger), so not enough space as the other files take the remainder up (i think).
HBC is installed fine, and that's all i've done.
I have no idea about all the other files it talks about (as i'm a no(o)b )
I HAVE read and digested as much as i can, but am still confused. There are over 160 pages to trawl through in this thread, which i don't have the time to do sadly.
So, if anyone can help with this help i'd be most grateful. I'm not bothered about any other hacks apart from watching dvd's. The mrs won't let me buy a BD player just yet and i'm not shelling out for another cheap and crappy dvd player.
I did read that 4.2E doesn't have a dvd hack yet, but that info was last updated in August, so maybe there is now.
Thanks for any help offered.

First of all, thanks for this guide. It helped me a lot. I was successfully patched my 4.2e.
But to my surprise I notice that when I play games through USB Loader GX, sometimes the Wiimote freeze and you cant play anymore. I never had this problem before and it seems total randomly. Any ideas?
I´m running softmodded 4.2e, GX rev. 811, cIOS 38rev14.
Best regards from Masse...

Great guide, this has worked for me so far. I have used the first options for all steps up to this point. Now I am at D5.
The guide states the following (as you know):
You can now install ios202, ios222, ios223. From HBC, run cios222 installer and select ios249 to use. At the next screen, choose the following, one at each turn:
-ios202, for usb - using ios38
-ios222, for uloader - using ios38
-ios223 mainly for GH5 - using ios38 merged with 37
On my console, my options for ios's are:
Use IOS 36 (Default)
Use IOS 37 merged with 36
Use IOS 38 merged with 36
Use IOS 60 Merged with 36
Given my options listed, what shall I choose for IOS 202, 222, and 223?
Another installer had the same issue (p.152) and Messie has stated to use 36/37 options. Does this mean use IOS36 for 202 and 222, then use 37 merged as 36 for 223?
Any help is appreciated!
ADDED: Also, NeoGamma works fine, but I get a black screen with USB loader (no hdd connected, installed the full version). Is this because I do not have D5 completed yet?
