System Menu 4.0 Rundown

I’ll keep this brief.

  • Nintendo, as expected, half-assed the SD feature by just automating the copy to NAND. No surprise there.
  • The IOS16 that warez users used to pirate is no longer an option, thank goodness.
  • HBC survives. So does DVDX.
  • They fixed the bug that the HBC installer and DVDX 3.4 installer use; time to bring out another one.
  • Twilight Hack no longer works. I’d like to remind everyone that this exploit has been in use for over a year. Whether it comes back or a new game exploit takes its place, I think we can say it’s served us all well.
  • No new problems expected with BootMii, other than needing a new exploit as mentioned above.

Yes, solutions are being worked on to run code via games and to install HBC. Sheesh.

    Got a question. I want to continue to use Ocarina as well as the savegame extractor/installer but also access the store and I’m at 3.3u version of my software. Do I go ahead an upgrade to 4.0?

    Hi everyone! I’m new here and to Homebrew as well. As a matter of fact, before looking into whether or not there was a action replay-like device for Wii games yesterday, I didn’t know that it even existed! I’ve been doing my research about it, and it sucks that the Twilight hack doesn’t work anymore (at least for people like me who updated their Wii to 4.0 as soon as it was announced from Nintendo). But, it looks as though BootMii is that silver lining on an otherwise dark cloud.

    I think that what you can do with the Homebrew channel is great. Now I’m not one for cheating when it comes to beating the game the first time through and experiencing it, but after completely beating it, it’s great that something like Homebrew can give it excellent replay value.

    For example: lately I’ve been revisiting Brawl after going through other games like Mario Kart and Mario Galaxy. After playing Brawl for a little bit (pretty much everything’s beat on it), I started to grow a little bored with it. Hence of why I looked into Homebrew (after all, AR was great for Melee).

    Now, I’m not here to ask anything like an ETA on when BootMii will be done (or the public beta for that matter), as I understand that the great minds behind this have more testing to do and stuff (not to mention their own lives to live), but I just wanted to comment on how great I think you guys are for making something like Homebrew and applaud you for doing your best to make Homebrew something useable for people like me.

    I do have a couple of things to ask though: 1)will BootMii be installed just like Homebrew was (as far as getting the necessary info to make it work on an SD card is concerned)? And 2)If yes to Q1, do you have plans to add Mac OS to the list of supported OSs?

    Any answers will be appreciated. Keep up the good work and I can’t wait to try the public beta (as long as my remains bootable, that is).

    First of all, i have to thank you guys for all the great work you have done!!!

    I have the wii with the firmware 4.0 so twilight hack didnt work on my wii i dont even tried to install it), and for all i have been reading, bootmii would be the solution for those who have this firmware ver?
    Or there would be another type of exploit like the twilight hack to install the HBC and the others applications?
    I really appreciate your work, and i cant wait to have this applications on mi wii T.T
