    It's working for some but not others. I'm busy studying but DeadlyFoez is on irc (#ModMii channel on abjects server) feverishly trying to help those who can't update properly.

    edit: I see you've joined the irc channel, hopefully u get it working soon

    Ok, we found a few small bugs in 7.0.1 and XFlak will be releasing an update hopefully before the end of the day, but it is nothing that breaks the program and your wii is in no chance of being bricked. Thank you everyone who helped sort these issues out in IRC with me.

    Ok folks. After screwing around all day and finding a few more issues with the installer, we'll just tell the manual install instructions.

    1. Download http://modmii.zzl.org/ModMii7.0.1.zip
    2. Extract the .zip file using the password of "34kdujw832s", without the quotes. You will get update.bin from the zip file.
    3. Rename update.bin to ModMii.exe
    4. Run the executable.
    5. Profit!!

    You now have the latest windows version of ModMii and it's able to be run as a portable app. If you really want it installed with shortcuts and all then you'll have to wait until XFlaks fixes the installer.

    P.S. Don't forget to donate. All those who donate $1USD or more get the functional easter egg.

    It's a good feature and it does work! ;)

    Edit: I thought it was something else, never mind.

    It shouldn't be. I've got it opening on my x86 win 7. Actually, I totally forgot trying it on x64, but I think xflak runs that anyways.

    I get "program too big to fit in memory"

    Edit: Something is strange about this file, I don't know what it is... but, I feel like it's got another purpose and you'll have to discover it for yourself. ;) *try a using a hex editor and see if you can find any clues in there.*

    I'm running Window 7 Ultimate x64 and when I try this method I get an error message stating that "This version of the program is not compatible with the version of Windows I'm running". Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Can you please open up the file that you extracted in a hex editor and copy the first 50 bytes or so in ascii format and post them up here. Apparently our host has been manipulating some file which caused them to seem as corrupt because they did not match the hash that we had coded in the updater/installer.

    I don't know if this is an issue with just me && my computer or what not but I can't seem to update my Modmii from v6.0.7 to 7.0.1!
    This is starting to piss me off seeing as Modmii keeps saying "an update to modmii" blah blah blah. Excuse me for seeming disrespectful but I like to keep my apps up to date!

    If you rename that file update.bin to update.png, then double-click that file to open it, it is an April Fools picture. This file is not a program, it is a picture.

    Yeah, our host if messing with our files again. Apparently, from the header, the host is putting in a .png file and renaming it. This must be their own spam crap and what was probably the issue from the start. I guess we over used our bandwidth in under a day.

    Just out of curiosity, if it is in fact a photoshop/.png file, what do you get when you open it as such?

    A round of applause for the only person that did not need every final detail spelled out for them (only with %90 of the details already given away :P). Congrats.


    And remember, Jesus loves you :D

    Happy April Fools' Day

    From Team Your Mom!


    [​IMG]

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


    [​IMG]
    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!

    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
