Up until now the only way to liberate your Wii console and enable the use of homebrew with System Menu 4.3 was to use a gamedisc based exploit such as “BatHaxx”, “Return of the Jodi” and others.

Today we are announcing a project that changes this completely and removes the requirement for an exploitable game.

In memory of BannerBomb, we present you with LetterBomb , a brand new System Menu exploit that will allow you to enable homebrew with the push of an envelope Wink (no stamp licking involved)

This exploit reuses (and abuses) some of some Nintendo’s Wii Messageboard functionality. :-)

Works for me on UNEEK+DI.   Grin  Can't try it on the regular NAND.

I had read on another site that someone was working on something similar to this, as is stated on that HackMii article.  Until recently, I didn't even know that mail from the Wii Message Board could be read and stored on an SD card.

Also, it's nice to have a non-game exploit for System Menu 4.3 users, just like System Menu 3.0 to 4.2 has Bannerbomb.  I imagine that this would be pretty easy for Nintendo to patch, but I don't know if they are even bothering at this point.  I imagine that they would at least try to patch this and force people to buy a game.

I dunno, I thought bannerbomb was the easiest.  This exploit needs your MAC address and region.

the exploit works on any firmware, doesn´t it?
And it´s the easiest to use exploit.
The hardest part is still the download captcha and the MAC Address input xDDDD
I failed the first time and it asked me: "Iz you a human?"

The exploit only works on 4.3.  For 4.2 and lower you can use bannerbomb.

I still say bannerbomb was the easiest.  Drop it on your SD card.  Click a few things on the Wii.  done.  It didn't require anything else from you.

well... some people didn´t find the sd card screen and even if they did, some wii´s didn´t like that exploit and crashed on load or something similar.
I guess everybody can click onto the message icon on the right and open the bomb message.
This discussion is kind of useless right now anyways Tongue

But why does it only work on 4.3.?
Older firmwares had the same message service.
You´re right, just use bannerbomb and that´s it, ok.

I'm guessing that Team Twiizers could make it work on System Menu 4.2 and lower if they really wanted to.  However, System Menu 3.0 to 4.2 have Bannerbomb, which doesn't require a game either.

While some people may have a problem with some versions of Bannerbomb, I can't say that I have ever seen a case where someone couldn't get any version of Bannerbomb to work at all.  I personally have never had a problem with it.

This seems pretty neat. I'm having my friends who haven't hacked their wii to try it out.
