    Looks like not only the fix for v4.2 systems, but some very nice updates to the HBC!

    Buggy, buggy, buggy! I already had some errors... (After ejecting an SD card, it still let me switch between pages...even though they were completely blank...) and a crash (on the "loading" screen)

    EDIT: I love the shutdown function though [​IMG]

    Great work again from the boys. Looks like all it needed was a quick fix changing the title id. The other features they've added to HBC must have been sitting in the wings ready to be released anyway.

    What really bothers me is the following:
    "The [boot 2 update] code [from Ninty] is so buggy that we decided to write our own for the HackMii installer.

    It’s really sad, but that wasn’t exaggerated at all. The first reports about bricks due to this official boot2 update are reported on Nintendo’s forums. Replies, which Ninty doesn’t like, are getting deleted. Anyway, it’s up to you if you want to risk it."

    I have mighty respect for the team, but is assuming thay can write code for the Wii in a few days, better than Ninteno themselves, a little egotistical ?

    the code was not written "in a few days" but rather in a few months (remember the time from the first bootmii announcement to the final release date?). we actually used to use nintendo's code when we figured out that it has obscure bugs (e.g. not writing ecc data)
    so yes, out code is better. and no, that's neither arrogant not egoistical. it's a fact. our code reproduces ninty's behaviour minus bugs plus some minor changes (we only overwrite one of the two boot2 copies because we don't have ninty's private key, heh)

    So for the rest of us who have the old version of HBC and Bootmii, how do we install this latest update? By running Bannerbomb again?

    UPDATE: No need bannerbomb to update. Easiest way if you have wifi is to load HBC as usual and wait for the auto-update prompt. More details in readme if you download the newest Hackmii installer package.

    You just run the installer from the HBC, not the SD card menu. Just make sure the files are in the apps folder on your SD card. Should already be stated in the readme!

    Now on the 4.3 they'll change the codes again and again and again...
    lol..

    I can almost see...a bootmii install with a button asking the ID's to avoid [​IMG]

    But from what i see...id's have changed...soo. Should we upgrade our instalation if we have a working FW4.1/Bootmii0.3 running?

    Thanks,
