    Who is this disc for? This disc is intended to be useful for those people who have bricked their Wii, don't have Bootmii (neither Preloader) installed as boot2 and/or don't have a backup of their Wii's NAND. If you have tried some autoboot discs unsuccessfully, try this one. It may do the trick.
    How does it work?
    Download it from http://www.megaupload.com/?d=39P21L63 (only if your Wii is bricked; I don't have a premium account), burn it with ImgBurn at a low speed (1x or 2x). Use it with the savemiifrii method and it will automatically launch the Homebrew Channel.


    What you need:
    1- A bricked Wii [​IMG].
    2- Homebrew Channel must be already installed on yor Wii.
    3- Not killed system menu (if system menu is uninstalled, you can't do anything without BootMii as boot2)
    4- Not killed system menu IOS (examples how to kill it: 4.0 -> 3.2 -> 3.4 what mostly modchip users do and old cioscorp on new Wiis)
    5- Trucha bug on system menu IOS.
    6- A Gamecube controller (to use the savemifrii method).
    7- Waninkoko's cIOS installed (any version).
    8- A modchip.
    6- An empty DVD (I recommend a -RW disc)

    F.A.Q.
    1- My Wii version is PAL/NTSC. What is the version of the disc? This disc is (in theory) prepared for working on PAL and NTSC Wiis.
    2- Does it matter what my firmware version is? It seems to work in many versions but it has very little testing (that's why I need feedback).
    3- Is it safe? You're kidding, aren't you? Your Wii is already bricked! Now, seriously. It doesn't install anything. Nothing at all so there's no risk for damaging (overbrick?) your Wii.

    If this disc helps you unbrick your Wii, please, let us know. I need to know what your firmware is and whether you had the trucha bug fixed/unfixed. If this disc doesn't finally help you repair your Wii you can give me feedback but don't complain. I didn't brick your Wii!

    Now that everyone has either bootmii or preloader, this IS quite useless. The fact that most people now have softmods means almost noone is going to use this.

    You need to have a mod chip? I think I saw a disk that doesn't need a mod chip, I'll see if I can find the link.

    Oh and by wii isn't bricked, but I like to be prepared [​IMG]

    This will also work if you have cioscorp installed

    Not everyone has a vulnerable boot2, so this will still be useful. Unless you know of a new exploit that lets you install bootmii even on newer systems. Also, preloader/boot2 was never publicly released so I don't even know why he bothered to mention it.

    I did the test on console 4.1u, and cioscorp 3.3, no modchip, loaded the HBC perfect.

    thats a really big claim, and a breakthru if it doesn't need it, you need to test that out fully before making a claim like that.
    cause so far every homebrew autoboot disc needs the trucha bug in the system ios , this would be the first fake signed disc that doesn't need it.

    Add to the requirements:
    - not killed system menu (if system menu is uninstalled, you can't do anything without BootMii as boot2)
    - not killed system menu IOS (examples how to kill it: 4.0 -> 3.2 -> 3.4 what mostly modchip users do and old cioscorp on new Wiis)
    - trucha bug on system menu IOS

    You, sir, a an arse.

    This is of great use for many people, among which I'm included as I didn't get past the beginnings of the softmodding era. For me, all those CIOs crap are nonsense, I just won't bother memorizing even more data than I do for university to fix a fucking Wii, so, yeah, this IS helpful. Cheers to the creator.

    Oh another method to kill the system menu IOS is to downgrade new Wiis. And running one of these IOS downgraders (the one that does not touch system menu and its IOS) on new Wiis renders HBC or at least 98% of homebrew unusable.

    Nevermind the negative comments, this is a very useful tool! Now wiis are virtually unbrickable! Those of us with LU64s thank you very much.
