    Hi guys,

    I am new to wii hacking, I have been trying to use modmii but it keeps failing on Hackmii and Bootmii I understand the site to retrieve these files by the program is down. I have got hold of Hackmii installer 0.8 and placed that in the empty folder modmii created in the copy to sd card folder.
    I cant seem to find files for Bootmii anywhere could someone please give me a link to them and could someone explain to me where on the sd card I need to place them.

    Sorry if linking to said files is not allowed on here.

    Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

    yeah, it looks as though hackmii.com is down, which is the server you need for the Letterbomb exploit. I'm concerned myself as I too am trying to hack my nephew's wii....

    Does anyone know why the hackmii.com is down?

    EDIT - I have just used Wiibrand to get the letterbomb exploit. I don't know if that helps OP?

    I have just hacked the wii myself using wiibrand - this is what I did.

    Go to http://gbatemp.net/threads/modify-any-wii-4-3-below.171901/ and download the mod.zip and/or update.zip if you need it. Then follow the instructions. Instead of using the letterbomb site, just use wiibrand. Make sure when you copy all the files from the mod.zip to your SD card, to delete the private folder BEFORE adding the private folder generated from wiibrand.

    Let me know how you get on!

    No worries. I do love modmii, but I always use the guide I showed you here at GBAtemp on virgin wiis, it's so simple and always works!

    Enjoy your wii!
