Wii HackMii installer v0.5 for all menu versions
Beware: Everything installable with this installer works with every system menu version, you do not have to update to v4.2! We even advise you not to update!
The first reports about bricks due to this official boot2 update are reported on Nintendoís forums. Replies, which Ninty doesnít like, are getting deleted. Anyway, itís up to you if you want to risk it.
If you already updated to v4.2, this version is the only one that works. If you donít have HBC installed, use e.g. Indiana Pwns to launch this installer.
If you want to update to v4.2, you should install HBC before updating. Because of the new title IDs, the HBC and DVDX version from this installer wonít get deleted on v4.2. Installing the new HBC before updating ensures that you have a working HBC afterwards.
If you updated to v4.2:
* BootMii/boot2 was wiped only if your boot2 version was v2 or v3. Just reinstall it.
* BootMii/IOS will still be there.
* DVDX got deleted, reinstall it.
General advice: Donít use some random update application, just update through the system menu if you really want to update.
General note: If you install anything with this installer version, update all the components you have already installed. E.g.: BootMii required some changes too, so the HBC with the new title ID gets loaded.
Note about DVDX enabled applications: Because of the new title ID, all current applications will fail to load DVDX. libogc needs additional code that checks for the new title ID. All DVDX enabled apps need to be recompiled afterwards.
Because Ninty fails to deliver new features with the latest update, I guess we have to compensate for that. Focus on this release are the promised improvements for HBC.

hum... sorry for being so noobish, but, all that confuses me to the point of not understanding anything. please could you explain it better? it's like this, i installed the backup downloader and all thanks to "the installing for dummies" and then i just followed the steps there and got it working with backup loader... but this thing, i really don't understand at all. bah!
I have updated a wii to 4.2e is there anyway to get the homebrew channel onto the wii with this version of firmware ??
If I have a fresh virgin wii updated to latest fm 4.2e. Is it too late to still install homebrew and other mods? All im really after is to play xvid files from my external onto my wii and play downloaded games. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks
