    ok so idk if im an idiot or what...

    My wii is like 3 years old and i stupidly updated it to the 4.2u system


    i downloaded the rar file, put my sd card into my computer...when i opened the memory card folder, there are no "root menus" this is a brand new sd card, i had it from Christmas and literally just took it out of the package. ** I should mention that it says it is an "SDHC" 4gb card.** Anyway, I used winzip to unzip the files then drug these 4 files over..

    IOS38-64-v3610.wad
    IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad
    boot.elf
    Hacks.ini

    i ejected the sd card and put it into my wii...when i clicked on the little sd icon the only thing i saw was the sd card menu, open spaces and 1/20. Nothing popped up or started. I did this several times and nothing happened.

    After I tried that, i thought maybe it was bc the card was sdhc..and yes it was formatted to fat32.

    so i took the sd card i had in my dig.camera which is 512mb, deleted all pics, formatted the card with the SDFormatter V2.0 i had downloaded and then tried the steps again, to no avail. Once again, when i open the sd card folder, it says "this folder is empty" there is no "root" files..and when i download the rar file there is no file in it with apps,private or wad.

    ****im sooooooooooooo lost ..help? please? thanks

    The files you download should look like this.
    root:\apps
    root:\private
    root:\wad
    IOS38-64-v3610.wad
    IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad
    boot.elf
    Hacks.ini

    1. Unpack the rar. file to a folder on your PC. Check these files are there.
    2. Take your SD card not SDHC, (if you do a nand bckup you will need a card larger than the on you have. 1-2GB is prefered) copy these files to it.

    If this part is not correct, then no point in proceeding until it is.

    Unhappy Help!

    I've followed this all the way through and when it came to putting the apps and wad back on the sd to get going it wouldn't show them in hbc just bloody bubbles again!

    Please help!

    Thanks so much for this excellent guide. The ability to play my own games that are backed up on my external usb hard drive is awesome.

    I followed all the steps for my 4.2u updated system, and everything worked great the first attempt.

    Thanks again.

    timelord - Homebrew apps must be in SD:\apps and have the following structure

    sd:\apps\(folder name)\boot.dol

    Failure to follow this structure will prevent anything from showing in HBC but the bubbles.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Question Confused about hacking guide?

So since this guide uses the bannerbomb hack, will it actually work for v4.2u virgin or updated and the model number starts with LU66XXXXX. Other sites say that model numbers starting from LU64XXXXX and up won't work.

    Thumbs up

    Thank you so much for this guide, quite a competent wii user and been using HBC for ages now, however having issues with Gecko etc trying to use cheat codes, well for my sins I decided to upgrade Cios38 rev 15 then 16 and oh boy, no more dvd backups were playing.

    Bit of logical thinking and back to this famous guide, tried a few things and hey presto back to normal with Cios38 rev14!

    Thank you again for a superb guide!

    Messie-
    I am stuck at the removal of IOS249.wad

    I have tried all 3 of your first packs copied to the card. all gave me an error one way or another (-1017, -4100, -1017) when uninstalling the ios249.wad from IOS36.

    then you say to try this.... and give the link to the softmod for 4.2 link that gets us into "any title deleter".

    do i just start from there? or do i just use those files with YOUR 249 guide?
    i am lost at this point.

    i followed this guide :
    http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/

    and then it just STOPS..and says "now youre ready to use usbloaders and stuff".....just drops off..no more explanation..we were left with no usb loaders to load or anything..

    where do you recommend i go from here?
    i figure the ios249 deleting, then installing the CIOS to use uSBloader..

    i appreciate your help.

    i really am not sure where to go from here..

    I have 4.2u (straight out of the box),
    installed HBC, followed the "complete soft mod guide" for my 4.2, and then i cant get 249 uninstalled to install the CIOS i need for USBLOADER..

    ive already bricked 1 wii because of trying it by downgrading my system version. you tell me not to..and from experience I dont want to.

    Im almost ready to just quit and forget about USB loaders and just burn the damn discs using my drivekey, and just playing the emulators through homebrew..

    I dont want to lose anymore and this is driving me insane.
