    I'm going to hack my Wii with BootMii because I got really reaaaalllly bored with it. I don't have an SD Card Reader, can't find my digital camera (-_-

    Please Register or Log in to view images

    , so I have a few discs and a USB drive.

    Can I use either to install it on my wii? x_x;

    Hi, congratulations to like haking ur wii, first, i don't think bootmii is the best, one question did u have the homebrew channel, ar u in 3.2U ,3.3U ,3.4U ,4.0U or 4.1U, if you want to hack ur wii u can do it 2 ways:

    * Twilight Hack(3.2U and above): Download
    Ensure your SD card is formatted as FAT. By default SD cards are formatted as FAT, so if you're not sure you can skip this step.
    (Optional) If you have an existing Zelda save that you want to backup, do so before proceeding:
    Put your SD card in your Wii and turn it on.
    Go into Wii Options --> Data Management --> Save Data --> Wii
    Find your Zelda save, click on it, click "Copy", and click Yes
    Put your SD card in your computer, and copy the "private" folder from the card to a safe place.
    Copy the "private" directory from the Twilight Hack download to the root of your SD card.
    Take your homebrew Wii executable (elf or dol file) and save it in the root directory of your SD card as "boot.elf" or "boot.dol" as appropriate.
    Put your SD card in your Wii and turn it on.
    Go into Wii Options --> Data Management --> Save Data --> Wii.
    Find your Zelda save, click on it, click "Erase", and click Yes.
    Open the SD card and select the "Twilight Hack" save that corresponds to your game region. Note: Some people are having problems with the Wii not "seeing" the save file on the SD card. If you are experiencing this, try setting the archive bit for the data.bin file - in Windows this can be either be done from the file's properties dialog (right click on it in Windows Explorer and check the box) or from the command line using "attrib +a <path to data.bin>". More info at #wiihelp on Efnet.
    Click copy and then yes. Now exit out of the menu.
    If you are using System Menu 3.4, you must immediately put the Twilight Hack to use. Turning off or running some other channel or game will have the System Menu delete the savegame again, and you'll have to start over.
    Insert The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess game disc and run the game.
    If you have the USA version of the game, load the "TwilightHack0" or "TwilightHack2" version of the game as appropriate (see above).
    Otherwise, load the only "Twilight Hack" save game.
    Once in the game, either walk backwards or talk to the man standing in front of you.
    Follow the instructions listed on the screen.
    Enjoy.

    *Bannerbomb(4.0U and above): Download
    If your SD card has a private directory, rename it temporarily, e.g. to "privateold". Having other saved channels on the same card will screw it up. (Also, if you don't have any channels on the SD card already, it's possible to skip this step so you can keep saves on your SD card)
    Copy the Bannerbomb "private" folder to the root of your SD card.
    Take your Wii executable, name it "boot.dol" or "boot.elf" if it isn't already, and save it in the root directory of your SD card.
    Put your SD card in your Wii and turn it on.
    Go into Wii Options --> Data Management --> Channels --> SD Card.
    A message should appear asking to "load boot.dol/.elf". If it freezes or does not appear, download the next .zip file from the Bannerbomb website and start over.
    The homebrew on your SD card will load. Enjoy!
    (Optional) Fill out Comex's survey on the Bannerbomb website.


    Download the installer from the link above.
    Expand the archive to find README.txt, wiiload and boot.elf or boot.dol
    Place the boot.elf or boot.dol file in the root of your SD card.
    Run the Twilight Hack or Bannerbomb, and allow the installer to load.
    READ THE DISCLAIMER! In the VERY unlikely case your Wii should be bricked by the installer, this will let you know where you stand in regards to Team Twiizers.
    Press the RESET button on your Wii.
    The installation should be automatic from this point on, and your Wii will reboot.

    No, you can't do it with usb because it isn't activated to be used for file transfer. SD cards and card readers are relatively cheap.

    I heard you can rip games to discs and play them on your wii if you mod it, if so then I want to mod mine(Just modded my 360's disc drive the other day)

    OK, I have access to an SD card and a reader. I have HackMii Installer. What the hell do I do now. Need answers, quick.

    OK, I tried bannerbomb but it freezes when I click my SD card.

    "Did you use the SD menu (4.x) or click Savedata instead of Channels? If so, then you're dumb"

    My wii says SD menu o-o;
