    accidently upgraded to 4.2u and Nothing works

    had a working softmodded machine and now no "hacks" work. I accidently upgraded the wii, and i have 4.2u now.

    I've tried to remod, and No boot.elfs work. Everything flashes the blue cd rom light, and locks up the console.

    Everything The latest tutorials i can find are from November 09. Is there anything else newer that might get me running again?

    You have to be a little bit more clear. Can you get onto thesystem menu or is it just the homebrew channel.

    There are two 4.2 mod thread/tutorials on Wiihacks (I didn't pay attention to their age) - here and here.

    Did you go to the guides section of the forum and look?

    I don't think you guys understand. Each 4.2 mod tutorial says to boot from SD card, and now no boot.elf will work from the SD Card on my wii.

    If you can't get bannerbomb to work, you will need to use the twighlight hack or the super smash stack to do ir. Are you certain you are using a 2 gig sandisk sd card formatted to fat32. What happens an error lock up blank screen?

    There is a disclaimer that banner bomb won't work on 4.2 in one of the tutorials (at least in terms of being the same banner bomber that works on 3.1 to 4.1 Wiis). Remember how your SD card has got to be 2GB standard SD / not MicroSD in SD adapter / not SDHC / fully formatted/not quick FAT32?

    No error, just tries to boot, then black screen with flashing blue Wii DVD-Rom lights. Keep in mind, I've used these tutorials successfully in the past. However, I just updated with Nintendo last night (stupidly). I'll try a different card, but this is the same card i've used successfully before.
