    Bootmii allows full control the the Wii's hardware from what i understand. Now that its been out for a while and many programmers have been able to work with it, is there anything that has been released or thats being worked on right now using mini that couldn't be done 'before bootmii' or at least couldn't be done as easily.

    Only thing i can think of is cboot2. It's a tool that runs on bootmii for installing cIOS on LU64's that came with 4.0 on them.

    It's typically used to install a WAD of some cIOS like rev7, then just run a newer cIOS installer from HBC to update the cIOS.

    It works on all wii's, so it really could be a one-fits-all solution for hacking a wii. No more IOS35 downgrades!

    EDIT: WiiBlaster - You beat me! You guys are so fast at your posts...

    I hope so. The Wii would do well with some Linux development.

    Er, well there's no hope to it. There is. It's early yet I guess, but it does a lot of what Wii Linux already does. I think you have to compile your own for now though.

    Do remember that Bootmii isn't really official yet. I have yet to know the extent on what we can do with the current build but maybe once it grows, we'll (hopefully) have more access to tools.

    I hadn't heard of cboot before this because i havent really been looking (i don't have and LU64 wii) but its nice to see that there is something specifically developed for bootmii.

    Thats true, i'm sure we will see more stuff in the future, with future releases. Does anyone know of any programmer like waninkoko, or wiigator, or anyone on gbatemp, working on special apps that are bootmii only? they always seem to be working on something great so i'm sure something will come eventually.
