As the title of this thread suggests: Softmii is officially dead. When you try to visit their website you get redirected to the following site containing the announcement below: http://gamingexposed.com/ Personally I suspect the real reason for them shutting down is the fact that their newest "3.0" release was completely ignored in the Wii hacking community and they became discouraged. Their excuse that running the website was a distraction is probably only half true because they had a separate group of people to do that. Many people in this forum seem to look down upon these prepared packages like "Softmii" but personally I think they serve a purpose. Not everyone has the time to research all the various software that is required to get a soft modded Wii up and running. A carefully prepared package with good documentation is invaluable for beginners like myself. Unfortunately Softmii always struggled with the documentation and seemed to take the instructions as secondary. Despite how advanced users look down upon them, I wanted to thank them for making my first steps into the Wii hacking world a little less scary. Even the 3.0 package I found useful just in terms of seeing what they decided to include in their package.
