Updating a modded wii
Take that newly downloaded zip file and extract its contents to your empty SD card.Next, remove the SD card from your PC and insert it into your Wii.Of course, the standard warnings and disclaimers apply: any changes or modifications you perform on your Wii are completely up to you and your sole responsibility.It’s really hard to brick a Wii this way, but it could happen. It’s simply what it sounds like, a channel, much like the Netflix or Nintendo e Shop.To perform this hack, you need an SD card formatted to FAT16 or FAT32. In the following screenshot, we indicate our system menu version (4.3U), input our MAC, and we’ll go ahead and bundle the Hack Mii installer as well.The size of the SD card isn’t crucial, we found an old 256MB card laying around that is pretty useless as a storage option nowadays, but perfect for this purpose. Next, you enter the CAPTCHA and click “cut the red wire” to download the Letterbomb zip file.That exploit requires the Super Smash Brothers Brawl game, which isn’t necessarily hard to get or expensive to purchase, but the method we’ll be showing you has far fewer hoops to jump through.There are also a number of other methods however, Letter Bomb works without a game and only on System Menu 4.3.
If your new SD card isn’t formatted properly, you can insert it and click “prepare a SD card” on the Boot Mii menu screen.
In the past, Nintendo has issued system updates intended to improve performance but also remove “unauthorized channels or firmware [that] may impair game play or the Wii console.” The focus of this article will to show you how to install HBC and Hack Mii soft mods on the latest and presumably last Wii system update (4.3), with a simple exploit called Letter Bomb.
We’ve written previously about how to hack your Wii using a Super Smash Brothers Brawl exploit called Smash Stack.
Just make sure you update your Wii fully to the latest 4.3 update because after you run the exploit, you can’t update your Wii anymore (not that we expect Nintendo to issue anymore patches) because it will break any modifications you apply.
You see the version of our system is 4.3U (U=United States, E=Europe, J=Japan, K=Korea), so we’re good to go.
