Updating my wii

In the past, Nintendo has issued system updates intended to improve performance but also remove “unauthorized channels or firmware [that] may impair game play or the Wii console.” The focus of this article will to show you how to install HBC and Hack Mii soft mods on the latest and presumably last Wii system update (4.3), with a simple exploit called Letter Bomb.We’ve written previously about how to hack your Wii using a Super Smash Brothers Brawl exploit called Smash Stack.Just make sure you update your Wii fully to the latest 4.3 update because after you run the exploit, you can’t update your Wii anymore (not that we expect Nintendo to issue anymore patches) because it will break any modifications you apply.You see the version of our system is 4.3U (U=United States, E=Europe, J=Japan, K=Korea), so we’re good to go.The Homebrew Channel (HBC) remains one the best and well-known console hacks in recent memory. If you have an old “un Brewed” Wii then there’s no time like the present to change that.After all, the warranty on your Wii is long expired, and you’re probably not doing anything with it anyway.If you’re interested in learning more about each individual exploit, you can read about them on Wil To check your system version, open the Wii System Settings by clicking the round Wii button in the lower-left corner of the System Menu.

You will know everything is a success when you see the following screen warning you to never pay for any of this software, which is provided free of charge to everyone. Confirm your intentions by clicking “Yes, continue” or click “no, take me back” if you change your mind. It won’t take long and once finished, you will see “SUCCESS” in green. Notice now there’s a new option to “uninstall the Homebrew Channel,” in case you want to undo your changes.

Otherwise, click “yes, continue” as seen in the following screenshot. By default, your installation of the Homebrew Channel won’t have any apps or games on it.

The installer will now write all the necessary runtime files to your SD card. You have to add those to your SD card’s Apps folder (you’ll need to do this on your PC).

Once the “press 1 to continue” text appears, it’s time to install the Homebrew Channel and Boot Mii. The next thing we’ll do is install Boot Mii, so click “Boot Mii…” to continue.

The Hack Mii installer is currently at version 1.2. Boot Mii must be installed as IOS (not to be confused with Apple’s mobile operating system i OS), which just means you’re going to have to use HBC to launch it.

Of course, the standard warnings and disclaimers apply: any changes or modifications you perform on your Wii are completely up to you and your sole responsibility.
