i would first recommend trying the trucha bug restorer, then downgrading to 4.0, then softmii.
what is the first four letters/digits of the serial number on the back?

mmmm ok

first Trucha requires HBC, so how i will run it ??

second, for the softmii process, you did post only softmii 4.0 with updagre (3.4 to 4.0) should i go this way or just skip the setup of run the upgrade and follow other instructions

third the SN is LEH25 ...

thanks

oh oops lol
first install the homebrew channel.
then try to install softmii, see how far you get, you may have to run the trucha bug restorer or downgrade.
then just go from there.

youre welcome Very Happy

hi l2yan,

the link of HBV on 4.0 has a readme file that instruct to install everything (not only HBC) .... is this will be enough or then i should downgrade to 4.0 then install softmii on 4.0 ??

you can install HBC, bootmii, and DVDX if you want to, it will be fine.

now you can probably just start the softmii process and see if you can get through without any problems.

the worst that can happen is that you would be prompted with an error code, meaning you need to downgrade.

hi l2yan,

it seems i did somthing wrong here and doesnt go as excepcted..

i have 4.1E,

i installed HBC on 4.0 and it was .... OK
i dwngrade to 3.2E and it was ... OK
instead to go thru the upgrade to 4.0 ... i did go thru Softmii on 4.0 steps till step 11 (CIOSCORP and CIOS60bf.wad) then i discovered my mistake.

what i did .. i simply went to upgrader tp 4.0 and it was success, i'm now trying to use the softmii on 4.0 tutorial but when i open Channels > SD card i found only blank bloxks without the msg to run "load boot/eif?"

any clues ...
after the upgrade i mistakely pressed on SD card icon on menu system and it just freez i had to unplug the wii, this may help ..

Thanks for you fast reply ... and i'm sorry for the mistake

well if you have already installed the homebrew channel, then you don't have to use the bannerbomb steps. (i.e. going into the sd card channels menu, etc.) just make sure that you are on 4.0 as of right now. then run the Wad Manager 1.4 through the homebrew channel, then If you are not an LU64+ user, then you install CIOSCORP. Next install the "cios60bf.wad" file through Wad Manager. IF YOU ARE A LU64+ USER then run softcorp and select each ios with the + key, and press A to install. (ios20 and below normally fail, so if you want, you don't have to install them)

After the necessary files have been successfully installed, you can reboot your wii.

let me know if this was the answer you were looking for Very Happy
