    Just to ask, does my wii console have to online in order for the exploit (LetterBomb) to work?

    Many thanks...

    Yes since you receive the exploit on your wii from the HackMii servers.

    It exploits a flaw similar to what Bannerbomb did, but this one abuses a bug in the Wii's message board.

    It looks like... I'm going to have to use a different exploit then.

    Thanks anyway...

    You don't have to worry about getting an update/ beeing banned.

    I'm on 3.2 since it came out, never got banned from anything and I've declined every update.
    I still can play my originals and my backups (even those that require 4.2/4.3)

    If you really want an other exploit, you'll have to buy/lend them in order to hack the console.

    You obviously have no idea how it works, why are you answering the OP's question?

    I really thought that you received it on your Wii.
    My bad, haven't been in the Wii hacking scene lately.

    This. Only your pc has to be able to go online.

    I'm confused as well now.

    I also thought the Letterbomb worked by sending a message to the Wii (with the given mac address) - how can this message be picked up by the Wii if it can't get online ?

    Did you use LetterBomb? I didn't, but EVEN I KNOW HOW IT WORKS.

    Why do you think the site needs information? TO GIVE YOU FILES PERTAINING TO THAT INFO.

    The files go on your SD card, and what do you think they do? Sit there? NO. THE FILES ARE THE EXPLOIT.
