Redundant Information

This page contains mostly redundant information, most of the process and description is directly copied from the Twilight Hack page. I think it is actually not needed as a guide, the Twilight Hack and the Homebrew Channel page describe the method quite extensively. --Drmr 15:17, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

It says "any SD Card smaller than 2GB will do". What if it's exactly 2GB? -Shado 22:23, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Help Me- At my wii the hack doesn't work!

I don't why, but help me please. At the Save Data-Menue i don't see the hack save data. Whether i use beta1 or beta2. I call like a noob, i want to develop to the wii. Thank you very much.

Boot.elf never loads... what do I do?

I get to step 2.4 Part 3: Setting up your Wii, then step #4- Insert your SD card into the slot found in the front of your Wii console

It says that boot.elf is supposed to appear yet it does not! I'm sure that I formatted the SD card correctly as FAT and copied the file from the HackMii Installer v0.6. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I'm using Wii Ver. 3.1U Thanks

auto update ?

hello, something is not clear and not described in this page http://hbc.hackmii.com/ how can we update to lastest 1.0.3 without internet on the wii ? even in download section, that's an old version (I use the zelda hack, yes I bought the game for that!) Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Whpfx (talkcontribs) 22:23, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Download the hackmii installer at bootmii.org and run it. Link33 00:45, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Detailed tutorial merged to replace bannerbomb

As requested by Blooper I completely replaced the bannerbomb portion of this page with my detailed bannerbomb tutorial. Isakill 02:47, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Update tut to fit HackMii beta 3

In section SD card setup 2 the tutorial says this:

3. Copy only the "installer.elf" file to the root of your SD card **see notes (See Picture 3 "copyinstaller.jpg")
4. Go to your SD card window and rename "installer.elf" to "boot.elf" (See Picture 4 "renameinstaller.jpg")

In the beta 3 version of HackMii, "installer.elf" is already called "boot.elf", so this might be a little confusing. Also, I think in some places the tutorial might have been made clearer; do I have green light to try and edit it a bit to make it clearer? I won't change any actual content.

Wavebird wireless controller

Now that Wavebird wireless is supported in hackmii installer, does this mean that the information in the troubleshooting section about holding all unused buttons down is outdated? i do not own one, so i cant s test this.--Hatredg0d 23:03, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Wiimote Stopped working after install

Hey guys, After installing Bootmii, Homebrew, and followed the tutorial to the letter (I have an early version of the Wii, so I did the boot2. Except for when it said after installing bootmi boot2 it asked again, so I complied. Now I reset it after putting on the apps folder. and the Wii mote does the little blinky thing and then doesn't work. I tried using multiple Wiimotes, batteries, and synching combonations, but to no avail. Please help ASAP! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Turnip (talkcontribs) 21:49, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Does you Wii reset in the Wii Menu or the BootMii menu? If it's the later. you can only use the buttons on the console: POWER = next item; RESET = select; EJECT = eject disc. If it's the former, I don't know. Diego_pmc Talk 19:16, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Needs update

This page needs an update (again). There also are some areas that could be made more easily understandable by inexperienced people. I plan to start working on this after the holidays. If someone wants to help, I won't mind, of course. :) Diego_pmc Talk 12:21, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
