    Bluebomb works on all firmware versions. I'm unsure, because I've never actually ran it, whether you need to know the specific firmware version or whether it asks "2.X, 3.X, 4.X". Since you believe it to be on firmware 4.X, you'd only need to try it 3 times.

    Neat, I didn't know the Mini could be hacked. But I think I'll try a LEGO game (certainly easier than rebuilding a Smash iso), because I have piles of 2GB SD cards and blank DVDs, and zero Linux PCs nor bluetooth adapters.

    Haha, I've got none!
    There are no Japanese Lego games to be had for free on the internet, as far as I can see. I tried that Yugioh game, and it needs elf files too. I tried poking at scrubbing Smash Bros, and even though I'm content with breaking the damn game, scrubbing it would take hours (maybe more than a day) of constant tedious clicking. I found a elf for SysCheck162, and it crashes in less than a second with some FAT SD card error (I fed it several different cards with different FAT formats even).

    So that leaves me 3 options
    1) Install Linux on some PC and borrow a bluetooth adapter from someone
    2) Buy a DL DVDR to burn Smash
    3) Give up
    4?) Just fucking guess some wads to install to make Hackmii function and force HBC on? That'd let me run syscheck, but that's a cart before the horse moment...

    Neat, I've never read up on those exploits either. Nice to see a variety of access points, but in my case, no settings means no internet connection so those can't run.

    Anywho, opttiiiiooooonn fffoooouuuurrrrr! I installed a clean copy of ios 58 (using Wadmanger v1.0's awesome elf version) and Hackmii finally works. Slapped on HBC and Bootmii as boot2, and have a backup. So now I can freely do stupid whatever. Ran Syscheck, and I think even I can see why Hackmii didn't work:

    I guess the next step is to simply run Modmii and pile on all the new ios files it wants, and then see how it runs.

    Edit: Launched Modmii, sneezed whilst typing "I Agree" and hit enter. The program closes. Kek, that's perfect

    Edit 2: Ran though everything Modmii provided, and the damn Settings menu is still blocked off... Syscheck:

    Any point in replacing ios 10? It appears to be a stub?

    Looking at that syscheck log... that poor Wii!

    Anyway, the issue here is pretty clear. System Menu 4.3U is installed even though the console's region is set to NTSC-J. That will cause a semi-brick, which is where the settings menu is inaccessible as you see.
    AnyRegionChanger can change that to NTSC-U, which will clear up the issue.

    Oh wow, I didn't even notice that.

    Edit: It's fixed, all is well!
    The various issues I had with the chipped drive tossed in my US Wii are not present on the Japanese Wii. I did randomly see a decade old internet post somewhere suggesting chips had to be soldered up slightly differently for different regions, perhaps that was the issue? Who knows, but all is well now so I don't care to figure it out.
