Tgames has released StartPatch 3.2.0E. StartPatch is a homebrew application that patches your System Menu with useful hacks like skip updates, etc.
Please remove any Gamecube Memory Cards, Gamecube Controllers, or Nunchuck accessories, before using this App!

Featuring the hacks:

  • No longer displays black/white health warning screen, so no need to press A, it will go straight to the channels screen.
  • Move Disc Channel
  • Enables the Disc Channel to be moved.
  • Skip Disc Update Check
  • Blocks updates, which have been embedded in Discs.
  • Remove Diag Disc Check
  • Remove Diagnostic Disc check.

Team Twiizer member dhewg has posted a great article at hackmii as well as releasing a new installer!

As you all know, Nintendo pushed a huge update yesterday. Turns out it’s a rather lame attempt to block, among other things, our installer. They also remove The Homebrew Channel and DVDX on every system menu startup, but for that they just hardcoded the used title IDs. So let’s play this silly game: let’s switch title IDs!

Beware: Everything installable with this installer works with every system menu version, you do not have to update to v4.2! We even advise you not to update! On the last article bushing wrote:

The [boot 2 update] code [from Ninty] is so buggy that we decided to write our own for the HackMii installer.

It’s really sad, but that wasn’t exaggerated at all. The first reports about bricks due to this official boot2 update are reported on Nintendo’s forums. Replies, which Ninty doesn’t like, are getting deleted. Anyway, it’s up to you if you want to risk it.

If you already updated to v4.2, this version is the only one that works. If you don’t have HBC installed, use e.g. Indiana Pwns to launch this installer.

If you want to update to v4.2, you should install HBC before updating. Because of the new title IDs, the HBC and DVDX version from this installer won’t get deleted on v4.2. Installing the new HBC before updating ensures that you have a working HBC afterwards.

If you updated to v4.2:

BootMii/boot2 was wiped only if your boot2 version was v2 or v3. Just reinstall it.
BootMii/IOS will still be there.
DVDX got deleted, reinstall it.

The changelog:

HackMii installer (v0.5):

  • New exploit to enable (un-)installation of all components on fully updated Wiis.
  • Fix hangs on some setups (they’re all related to retarded IOS patches).
  • BootMii beta 4 (v1.1):
  • Properly write the keys to nand.bin.
  • This fixes the “NAND dump is from another Wii” issue on restoring beta 3 backups. If you don’t know how to fix those dumps, you have to backup the NAND again. Dumps from all other versions are not affected.

The Homebrew Channel v1.0.5:

  • Faster startup.
  • Prefer boot.elf over boot.dol when launching apps.
  • New shiny fonts, tweaked to the last subpixel.
  • Widescreen support.
  • If your Wii is set to 16:9 in the system menu options, HBC won’t strech the picture like it did on older versions. Unfortunately the fonts might look a little weird then, it really depends on the used display unit. Blame the lack of true widescreen support on the Wii for that.
  • Grid view.
  • Hit 2/Y while browsing applications to switch between the old and the new view. This shows 4 columns on 16:9 setups, 4:3 users only get 3.
  • Device hot-plugging.
  • You can remove and insert devices (front SD slot, USB mass storage, and SDGecko in both slots) at all times now without reloading HBC.
  • To change to another device, hit 1/X to bring up a simple option dialog.
  • Application sort order.
  • You can now choose how to sort the shown entries. Current options: either by the name or by the release date.
  • Note that for the latter sort order a valid release_date tag has to be present in the meta.xml file.
  • Again, hit 1/X for the options dialog to set this.
  • wiiload overhaul.
  • On-the-fly compression: Uploaded files are automatically compressed on PC side: This makes it way faster, especially on bigger files. ScummVM, anyone?
  • Improved USBGecko support: Faster uploads, and you don’t have to stop reading debug messages from the device while uploading files.
  • libftdi support: Because ftdi-sio fails, especially on OSX.
  • Note: Because of these improvements, older wiiload version and 3rd party upload clients are incompatible. Use the bundled v0.5, binaries and source code are included.
  • Basic application management.
  • To add apps: Just wiiload a ZIP archive, it will then get extracted to the active device. The ZIP file must be structured in a certain way, check this description for the details.
  • To delete apps: There’s a new button on the application dialog.


  • Allow PPC side hardware access.
  • Also known as the magic HW_AHBPROT register.
  • TMD version bumped to 2, in case anyone needs to check for e.g. HW_AHBPROT.
  • Either grab the new installer here, or use the HBC online update (a confirmation dialog should pop up when launching HBC).

Main Notes:

Compatible with the new System menu 4.2!

“Get a SD card. If it has a private directory, rename it temporarily, e.g. to “privateold”. Having other saved channels on the same card will screw it up.
Download and unzip it onto the SD card.
Go download the HackMii installer. Copy installer.elf to the root of the SD card, and rename it to boot.elf.
Press the SD card icon (for the SD menu). This is different from the last version. Then insert the card. It should either pop up Load boot.dol/elf? or freeze.
If it pops up a dialog, then fill out the survey.
If you encounter any problems from then on, don’t try other versions (it won’t help), but see the information below the survey.
If it freezes before popping up the dialog, you could try these versions: Here”

Nintendo firmware version 4.2 DISABLES bannerbomb. It also deletes the homebrew channel. Update at your own risk. Nintendo released the update September 29,2009. -BKF-

Just to add to that, there is a exploit out however this updates your boot2 to boot2v4 which means, you cannot downgrade your wii, This part of the upgrade is irreversible and would mean your unable to use some stuff in your wii you would like to.

This update also *I think* deletes bootmii as nand, So watch out fellow Wii-Brewers.

Any Title Deleter Mod v6

AnyTitle Deleter


AnyTitle Deleter MOD is an unofficial mod by Red Squirrel of Tona’s AnyTitle Deleter. It keeps all of the original’s functions, but it allows the program to show the real names of titles instead of just the ID numbers, making it easier to select which ones you actually want to delete.

From the previous version, some new features have been added such as an installed title back-upper, IOS chooser, and the possibility to exit through rebooting the Wii.

Also, before you attempt to use this program, make sure you know what you’re doing. It edits the flash memory of the Wii and that can be dangerous. Take extreme caution when using this program.

You get points for each group of blocks of the same color you click on. The more blocks together of the same color, the more points you recieve.

This one’s a cool hack. ubiq_01 has created an impressive and simple program to show off how the WiiMote and iPhone can connect through bluetooth. Apparently, many people have been waiting for this to come out for their homebrew programs. I don’t know why’d anyone want more accelerometers, but hey, whatever floats your boat.
