Letterbomb install stuck at "Press 1"

Letterbomb install stuck at "Press 1"

Hi

I'm new to homebrew.

I have a Wii on 4.3U and I'm trying to install homebrew (mainly for the opensource tools & games)

I've copied the letterbomb.zip contents to fat32 formatted sd-card and I can start the letterbomb process. It goes thru the 1st screen and states it sees a valid boot file. Then it takes me to a warning message about not paying for letterbomb and ask "Press 1 to continue". However when I try nothing happens. If I try to resync the remote it will not sync. I have 2 remotes and neither respond.

After I power cycle the Wii the remotes works fine, but when I open the letterbomb the remotes stop working again and I can not install homebrew. Is this a known issue? any workarounds.

BTW. I created to zip file by providing the Wii's MAC and version # and tried creating the zip twice. Same issue,

thanks in advance

G

Did a little research and seems other have run into to this when trying to re-install HBC. My Wii is used (Craigslist), and I'm guessing the last owner may have had some mods installed and reformatted the memory, however this apparently doesn't clean everything. Is there a method to return the Wii to a factory default?

The installer make a log on sd:\installer.log. Have a look at that log, perhaps paste it here.

Thanks for the reply. There isn't an installer.log file, I guess I'm getting stuck before the install starts.

Note. Going to try a GC controller to see if that lets me get passed "Press 1"

I don't have the GC controller yet, but I'll report back when I do.
