Hey XFlak, I tried using ModMii for the 1st time today and I ran into a couple errors. This is from the latest .zip (6.4.2) with my antivirus (Avast) disabled for the duration of the install. It wouldn't surprise me if it's still due to my antivirus though.

Did you extract the contents of the zip file or just run the executable from within the zip file?

I extracted the contents of the .zip file then ran the .exe (as Administrator to avoid any potential errors).

I did find a similar question posted earlier in this thread; I'm gonna give that solution a shot now.

UPDATE:

I downloaded this file (source) and extracted UnRAR.exe from the x86 folder, renamed it unrar.exe and placed it in a created /temp/ folder in the extracted ModMii directory before running it; seems to have solved the problem. BTW, I'm running on a x64 OS, but I figured the ModMii .exe is for x86.

Will a self contained Zip of it be available like v6.4.2?
Yes, all of modmii's recent releases can be found here in zip form.

The modmii installer will always download the most recent zip file for u. And the installer gives you the option of where to save it, and whether or not you want to make desktop or start menu shortcuts. So there's really no reason not to use the installer unless it makes your antivirus go crazy with false positive reports.

ModMii v7.0.0 and v7.0.1 are a hoax, they do not exist and anything you've read about ModMii in the v7.0.0 and v7.0.1 changelogs are not true.
Happy April Fools' Day

From Team Your Mom!

Many of you have just been the victims of a harmless ModMii April Fools' prank, codenamed "The Never Ending Update".


6gxw0h.jpg
ModMii v7.0.0 and v7.0.1 are a hoax, they do not exist and anything you've read about ModMii in the v7.0.0 and v7.0.1 changelogs are not true. The latest version of ModMii currently is still v6.0.7.


7.0.1 Changelog:
  • Corrected an issue that some users were having when updating to ModMii v7.0.0.
  • Hey Vegeta, what does the internet say about ModMii's download count?
  • Other minor changes and bugfixes.


7.0.0 Changelog:
  • The ModMii user interface was totally rewritten in this update and now not only works on Windows but also on Macs and Linux. Note that when ModMii is being run on a Mac or linux System Menu themes are not supported. Big thanks goes out to DeadlyFoez who played a major role in this update.
  • Chuck Norris doesn't use ModMii, ModMii uses Chuck Norris.
  • Other minor changes and bugfixes.

This joke was very elaborate, and I'll expand on all the juicy and funny details...

I first took ModMii6.0.7.zip, and simply renamed it ModMii7.0.0.zip. So ModMii would try to update to v7.0.0, but in actuality it was installing v6.0.7, and users would be prompted to update to v7.0.0 again and again and again. This was totally harmless as users could still use ModMii v6.0.7 like normal by either declining the update or disabling update checks.

Here's a youtube video one ModMii user sent me via email to report the update "bug".
And here's another video someone else recording to demonstrate the "bug".

Then to keep things fresh, we did the same thing but with v7.0.1 and also uploaded a text file to the google code page with this path "http://modmii.zzl.org/ModMii7.0.1.zip". If you followed this path, it would download a password protected zip file that DeadlyFoez mentions here:


In the ModMii IRC Channel, DeadlyFoez had people open update.bin in a hex editor and at that point most people noticed "PNG" in the header... this is because that file is an image, in fact, it's this image!

If you were then to visit http://modmii.zzl.org/changelog.html, and scroll ALL the way to the bottom you would have seen this spoiler

Once someone figured out it was an April Fools' Joke, we got them to publicly report they got it working and fool others to jump through the same hoops and so on and so on.

After all is said and done, ModMii v7.0.0 and v7.0.1 (really v6.0.7 in disguise) were downloaded over 5,500 times!

Thanks everyone for being such good sports about this harmless April Fools' joke!

PS. JoostinOnline's reaction was the best

Can you guys try renaming it to what the header says and tell me if it works then?

I recall some folks getting it to work on Linux and mac's using wine and/or VMware. Easier to just borrow a PC if you have access.

Hello,

I used Modmii 6.4.1 a while back with good results.

I have a few questions, please.

Should I run a later version now there has been an update made by you?

What can I delete from my SD card now it this is working well?

Can I get rid of the SD card and run everything from my USB stick by copying it over?
(I found the instruction a little difficult to understand in that respect).

I never could get Nintendeont to run from from loader CFG. Do you have any tips or config advice?
(I use wiiflow 4 by Abz and it works well, but I like cfg loader more).

Thank you for making this tool.

You don't need to run it again, but you might want to update your USB loader and cIOS (if you already have d2x cIOS v8 there's no need to update that)

You can delete any of the WAD files on your SD, along with the Priiloader installer in your apps folder if you have it, and boot.dol/elf on the SD card root. I think that's about it.

You can move most things to the SD card. Some homebrew might not be compatible as they are hard-coded to read files from the SD card, but USB loaders and emulators should work just fine off USB.
Other homebrew will mostly work as well, you'll have to try them to find out.

I don't know about CFG Loader, I personally prefer USB Loader GX since it can be set up to look exactly like the home menu. It also works fine with Nintendont. And I think it's the most polished out of the 3.
