    Talking Wii Fw 4.2 Update Defeated !!! here by our own members & staff



    Warning: Due to the new fw, we have not tested this much, so this may work, it may not work! those who want to try it out, this is what they should do:



    Ok so you Updated your Wii to 4.2 and now you have lost all your HomeBrew, well not all is lost, If you previously had Softmod and you are NOT using a virgin 4.2 wii then it means you most probably would have IOS249 installed, we all know that this has now been blocked by Nintendo, but what you don't know is there is a duplicate, yes IOS250, so do the following to get your HBC back up and running.


    more info here


    congrats to the Wiihacks members & staff ..technom8t, jamieupanddown and messie who was involved testing till really early into the morning...

    Thats just to show you how freakin awsome this site is. We found out about fw 4.2 first and was the first one to hack it. Congrates to the members that worked hard on finding a solution in so little time.
    Come to the Irc room to get help or just have fun

    Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.

    Seems it does not work for everyone tho! we had glorious times yesterday!! Hooray to us!!



    These ppl have left ios250 alone? seems it tries to overwrite, yet 250 version is higher or sth... Imagine that! and imagine that these ppl get 50$ from us for a game! LOL to them

    ok found why it sometimes fails:

    From hackmii.com

    New stub IOSes installed as IOS222, IOS223, IOS249, and IOS250. This seems to be the only effort made to remove “unauthorized firmware” from the Wii. This may or may not actually work, depending on the version number used in the TMD of the already-installed version of IOS.

    also we should expect a new bootmii version??? these guys rock!!!

    I’m surprised that they took the bold move of pushing an updated boot2 — I guess all of the cool kids are doing it these days. Their boot2-updating code (ES_ImportBoot) is not well-tested; they’ve never updated boot2 on retail consoles before, and in our testing we discovered that it often fails to write out ECC data for the new version of boot2 that it writes. We should expect to see some number of bricked Wiis from this; the code is so buggy that we decided to write our own for the HackMii installer. If you had BootMii/boot2 installed, it will be overwritten with the normal, stock boot2, but there should be no other harmful effects.

    First to hack it or more like the first site to have members with enough balls to update so they could have a go at hacking the HBC onto it.

    Thats the way I see it anyway.
