I want to help this guy

I got an email from a guy who can't get the homebrew channel installed, but I don't know how to fix it so I figured I'd ask here.

Dear dedicated homebrew team,

I have been trying to install homebrew to my wii since I found out
about brawl+. This has been about 3 months. Ironically I read an
un-updated FAQ about wii menu 4.0 and homebrew. It read that you
COULD install after. It was then changed to you CAN'T install after
but may USE the homebrew. I had already gotten wii-menu 4.0 at this
point. Earlier today I tried setting it up using the new bannerbomb
hack-mii combo. I read all the read-me files and looked at forums and
FAQ's all over the internet but I still ran into the same errors!

I would correctly name and move files (i.e installer.elf to root
director as boot.elf) I would then follow the directions and go to
the channel sd section. It would ask me to install and I'd say yes.
Then when it got to installing the homebrew the error occurred. This
was during the phase when the wii "talks to you." It would say "I'm
preparing to install homebrew." or something along those lines. Then
I'd click accept on my wii-mote. It would start to install and would
read "Installation failed" Ticket error 100300______(more numbers) I
do not know what to do! I have retried downloading files and have
followed multiple directions on how to install my homebrew but I
always get to the same point and receive the same error.

Please, help me!?

Thank you for reading,

Is he using the HackMii Installer, which includes installation options for the Homebrew Channel, DVDX, and BootMii? All of the other Homebrew Channel installers use exploits which have now been patched by Nintendo on 4.0.

I'm pretty sure he is.. That quote is all the info I got, but it says installer.elf so I'm assuming it is the HackMii Installer

Okay, I see. Can you try and find out what version of Bannerbomb he is using? I know that some versions were having problems with GeckoOS. Maybe a different version would work?

well I doubt that the version matters because Gecko OS is incompatible with all versions of bannerbomb. The installer runs, so it's something with his wii, or the installer, or something else?

Sounds like this may be modchip related. Some people with those installed have really weird issues.

To me, it sounds like he is still trying to use the HBC 1.0.1 installer. Send him the HackMii Installer, and tell him to rename the contained .elf to boot.elf.
