Need help - BootMii install problem during HomeBrew setup
June 01, 2010 04:52PM
New comer here. Tried to install Homebrew following one-by-one instructions in Homebrew Setup tut "http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_setup" but got stuck at the step [Running Bootmii Through HBC]. I had successfully installed HBC and DVDx and I had to install BootMii via IOS (Wii System 4.2). After going into the HBC, hit the "Home" button on Wii Remote, the menu I got is not the same as the picture in the tutorial. It only has:
- Back
- About
- Go to System Menu
- Shutdown

I could not find the "Launch BootMii" option at all. Not sure if I had missed out anything. Anyone had this problem before? Any information or directions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advanced, guys.

He's trying to run BootMii through the Homebrew Channel. Few things you gotta know, though. First, you need a Gamecube controller to control within BootMii. Second, BootMii has very little functioning in IOS form.

Hi,

I) I also have a 4.2 an I was able to install HBC using the same tutorial as smartufo ("http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_setup"). I installed BootMii as IOS.

When I enter HBC I see the full menu! With the option "Launch BootMii".

My problem is that when I launch it, the screen goes black and the blue light in the DVD entrance flashes non-stop.
I waited for long time, but nothing happens! Just black screen and the blue light flashing! :(

My wii is a black one. Bought in Portugal on January 4th, 2010.

I would like to make a backup of my NAND and every other thing I can to minimize future problems (or to be able to solve them).

Can anyone help me?
Can I start installing applications?
Shouldn't I launch BootMii first as stated on the tutorial?

II) Vulnerable IOS
Anyway, I tried to install the application WiiMC (http://wiibrew.org/wiki/WiiMC).
From the wiki page of WiiMC I found out that I should install IOS202.
When installin it, it made a check on my IOS's ("looking for a vulnerable IOS" ...or something like it).
It failed! Error. Could not find a vulnerable IOS! Run DOP-Mii or Trucha Bug Restorer to install one.


My main questions now, after these issues with BootMii and applications and vulnerables IOS is:
- Should I be installing stuff on these newer Wii's?? Have these Wii's been tested in lab? Is it too early?
- Am I doing things correct? Can I continue (at my own risk of course :P ) and install DOP-Mii?

Thanks in advance,
pbraga
