TypePC utility

CustomizeMii is a custom channel creator for the Wii.
The .NET Framework 2.0 is required to run this application!

A mono version is available which runs under Linux / Mac OS X (Requires the mono framework to be installed!)

Thanks to icefire / Xuzz for the basic idea of this Application!

And No: This has nothing to do with piracy! It's for creating custom Channels for your Homebrew Apps (like the Homebrew Channel).

Editing WAD files can result in a brick of your Wii.

Only use this application if you have a bricksafe Wii, meaning either Preloader or BootMii/boot2 is installed, and if you know what you're doing. Editing of the banner can easily cause a banner brick (causes the system menu to crash after the health screen) if you are not careful (although this program should fix any issues with that) which is only fixable but easily so if you have access to Homebrew Channel or BootMii from the launch of your Wii.

This application comes without any express or implied warranty. The author can't be held responsible for any damages arising from the use of it.
