    Other stuff:

    * You can't actually install the homebrew channel or anything-- the bootmii installer will be able to do that in a few days, I hope.
    * If it gives you the dialog but freezes instead of loading the dol, email me. Tell me where it froze and whether or not the slot light is on. You might also try removing the disc.
    * Please don't copy/hotlink/whatever, just link here. Thanks.

    This one's also real, btw.

    [15:54] we are still pulling peoples legs right? or did you actually release?
    [15:54] nope, it's real this time
    [15:54] WTF

    Many people are confused and think this place is 4chan. Soon the merge will happen, welcome to gbachan.

    Where intellect matters
    Comex is on the IRC and he confirms this.

    This also works on virgins.

    This should do anything except install HBC.

    so the bannerbomb will actually be used for the bootmii installer? not for the hbc? then bootmii will be able to install the hbc?

    But surely you don't NEED a copy of Zelda anymore to install HBC on a 3.2 Wii? Wish I could test it...

    i know this is a stupid question, but what can i actually achieve from using Bannerbomb
    im on a virgin 4.0E, and though i understand it will run .dol files.....im not entirely sure what they are, and since it cant install homebrew channel, what exactly can i do with this release?

    A dol is an executable homebrew file. Normally the homebrew channel will show a list of all dol files on sd and then you can pick one to run. With this bannerbomb, it will just load 1 dol located in the root. So grab any piece of homebrew you want to try, rename its dol to boot.dol and try it

    You can run homebrew, except the homebrew channel. Like oldskool days twilight hack.
