Title: HackMii Installer 1.1 Released (Support for Homebrew Channel on the Wii U)
Post by: 111 on December 07, 2012, 09:09:40 PM
Team Twiizers have released an updated HackMii Installer, which includes the Homebrew Channel 1.1.1 and BootMii 1.5.  I don't see a changelog, and from what I can tell, the only difference is that the HackMii Installer now uses a different IOS exploit so that the Homebrew Channel can be installed on a Wii U in Wii Mode (although I suppose there could be minor bug fixes).  However, I figured that since this is also a Wii update, I would post it here...

HBC release for a new Wii U
December 7th, 2012 by dhewg

Another year, another console, another Hackmii Installer!

Despite all of the anti-reverse-engineering tricks we put into our last installment of the HackMii Installer, Nintendo managed to find the IOS exploit we used to install The Homebrew Channel and fix it sometime within the last two years. There never was a Wii system update for this, the fixed IOS versions can only be found on a Wii U.

They also blocked our old title ID. Consequently, we have a new release with a new version of The Homebrew Channel; this will install on both Wii consoles, and inside the virtual Wii sandbox inside the Wii U.  The currently used IOS exploit is courtesy of tueidj.

Please note that this is not running in full Wii U mode; running this on a Wii U will probably work just like on a Wii. (See if you can find any differences, we can all try to hack the Wii U together from inside Wii mode!)

Also, due to technical limitations of the virtual Wii mode, BootMii will not work on a Wii U. If we are able to resolve this, we will make a new release with BootMii support.

As usual, grab the new installer here (http://bootmii.org/download/?varnish=sucks).

If you’re unsure what do to with the installer, see this wiki page (http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_setup) for a general tutorial on how to setup homebrew on your Wii, and this one at the brand new wiiubrew.org (http://wiiubrew.org/wiki/WiiMode) for savegame exploits that still work on a Wii U.
