HackMii Installer v0.5 by Team Twiizers

HackMii installer (v0.5):
  • New exploit to enable (un-)installation of all components on fully updated Wiis.
  • Fix hangs on some setups (they’re all related to retarded IOS patches).

BootMii beta 4 (v1.1):
  • Properly write the keys to nand.bin.
  • This fixes the “NAND dump is from another Wii” issue on restoring beta 3 backups. If you don’t know how to fix those dumps, you have to backup the NAND again. Dumps from all other versions are not affected.

The Homebrew Channel v1.0.5:
  • Faster startup.
  • Prefer boot.elf over boot.dol when launching apps.
  • New shiny fonts, tweaked to the last subpixel.
  • Widescreen support.
  • If your Wii is set to 16:9 in the system menu options, HBC won’t stretch the picture like it did on older versions. Unfortunately the fonts might look a little weird then, it really depends on the used display unit. Blame the lack of true widescreen support on the Wii for that.
  • Grid view.
  • Hit 2/Y while browsing applications to switch between the old and the new view. This shows 4 columns on 16:9 setups, 4:3 users only get 3.
  • Device hot-plugging.
  • You can remove and insert devices (front SD slot, USB mass storage, and SDGecko in both slots) at all times now without reloading HBC.
  • To change to another device, hit 1/X to bring up a simple option dialog.
  • Application sort order.
  • You can now choose how to sort the shown entries. Current options: either by the name or by the release date.
  • Note that for the latter sort order a valid release_date tag has to be present in the meta.xml file.
  • Again, hit 1/X for the options dialog to set this.
  • wiiload overhaul.
  • On-the-fly compression: Uploaded files are automatically compressed on PC side: This makes it way faster, especially on bigger files. ScummVM, anyone?
  • Improved USBGecko support: Faster uploads, and you don’t have to stop reading debug messages from the device while uploading files.
  • libftdi support: Because ftdi-sio fails, especially on OSX. Note: Because of these improvements, older wiiload version and 3rd party upload clients are incompatible. Use the bundled v0.5, binaries and source code are included.
  • Basic application management.
  • To add apps: Just wiiload a ZIP archive, it will then get extracted to the active device. The ZIP file must be structured in a certain way, check this description for the details.
  • To delete apps: There’s a new button on the application dialog.

  • Allow PPC side hardware access.
  • Also known as the magic HW_AHBPROT register.
  • TMD version bumped to 2, in case anyone needs to check for e.g. HW_AHBPROT.
You may use HBC online update.
