    There is no comparison . Letterbomb is a wii exploit that allows you to install hbc without the need for any game while Modmii is a pc program that downloads all the things you need to hack your wii & generate for you a guide to follow (which will contain using letterbomb if you are on 4.3) in order to hack the wii .

    So if I letterbomb I still get all the features in modmii?.

    Use Modmii. It shows you how to softmod your wii using letterbomb. Letterbomb is only an exploit, while modmii is a total softmod tutorial and tool.

    No you don't need any game when using modmii . Just say that you don't have any of the games needed when asked in the wizard .

    Letterbomb allows you to use the files that ModMii sets up for you, but ModMii will get letterbomb ready for you.

    Dont think of modmii as a wii mod, think of it as a tool to help you mod your Wii by telling you exactly what you need to do and what files you need to install (and downloads them for you).

    In short, this is how its done: You run the Wizard in ModMii, follow the directions, copy the files to your SD card as instructed, put in wii, start wii, launch Letterbomb and follow ModMii's excellent generated guide.

    Hi

    Another question my wii is 4.3E so do I use 4,3 on the modmii to do this, I'm guessing the E is for Europe?.

    Thanks, not sure if I miss this but do I need the Wii to have wifi on or should I switch it off??

    Plus since I'm stepping ahead is there a good N64 emulator so I can play Goldeneye again?.

    Thanks again kind community:)

    Ok, just going through the steps.

    I don't have any of the games so I typed in bomb to letterbomb which forwarded me to this address:

    http://please.hackmii.com/

    However, how do I nab the mac address?

    the modmii window should still be open and should have instructions on where to find it

    Thanks,

    Done pretty much everything and I downloaded the guide however, since I'm a wimp I need some clarification.

    As this is a virgin wii I have to letterbomb it first and which then installs the hbc but what was the point of using bootmii if it letterbomb does the same thing?.

    I dont think you understand. Letterbomb is the actual exploit to hack the wii. Modmii is simply a tool to download all necessary files and walk you through the steps of hacking the wii. I have recently hacked a virgin wii with modmii using letterbomb and if you follow the instructions thoroughly, you should have no troubles at all.

    ^Thanks

    OK letter bomb 'private folder' is on the root of the SD card,

    Modmii has downloaded all the files so I copy all the content from copy_to_sd to root of the my sd card or do I copy the copy_to_sd folder?

    One more thing and I do apologise but once I letter bomb it then how do I utilise all the modmii stuff I downloaded?. I'm reading the guide and I'm still tad confused.

    Thanks

    letterbomb is an exploit
    an exploit allows you to run your an app off an sd card
    the typical softmod process uses an exploit (ie. letterbomb) to launch the hackmii installer (ie. an app)
    the hackmii installer in turn installs bootmii and the homebrew channel
    then instead of using an exploit to launch other apps, u can launch them using the homebrew channel (as the rest of your modmii guide will explain when u get to that stage)

    I hope that clears up a few of your questions

    Do not copy the copy_to_sd folder, just the contents to the root.
