    Rev HackMii Installer v0.7

    News via http://hackmii.com/2010/07/hackmii-installer-v0-7/

    After more than four weeks we believe we’ve finally reached the point for the next public release of the HackMii Installer: v0.7.

    A lot of changes and improvements went into this release. After quite some headaches and a few puzzles (thanks Erant!) we stockpiled over 250 commits since v0.6, increasing the compatibility with even more Wiis.

    The installer now works completely differently, The Homebrew Channel got a few new features and a new look, and BootMii received a fair amount of minor improvements too.

    Next to the usual minor fixes, these are the changes worth mentioning:

    HackMii Installer (v0.7)

    New exploit to enable (un-) installation of all components on fully updated Wiis (up to, and including System Menu v4.3).
    Proper support for all regions, including KOR.
    General overhaul: the installer now requires BootMii/IOS to function. It will automatically be installed upon startup – either if BootMii/IOS is not installed or if it is older than the version this release comes with.
    DVDX died a horrible death. Rumor has it that someone dropped a snapple bottle on its head.
    Additional installer binary bootmini.elf, see the included README.txt for more infos.
    BootMii beta 5 (v1.2):

    Compatible with more SD cards.
    New font, borrowed from the deceased Twilight Hack.
    The button combination when restoring a NAND backup with only BootMii/IOS was impossible to perform with some pads. It has been changed to the Konami Code.
    The Homebrew Channel (v1.0.7):

    New title id to circumvent its deletion by System Menu v4.3.
    New look from our favorite pixel artist drmr.
    Both views now show five rows of application entries.
    On-NAND settings.
    The selected device, sort order, view and application are saved. Settings are restored when reentering HBC.
    The settings can be deleted via the System Menu’s Data Management.
    HBC now has the HW_AHBPROT flags set for direct hardware access, thus replacing DVDX.
    Ability to not reload IOS when launching an application.
    This effectively means that loaded applications inherit the title id, gaining direct hardware access via HW_AHBPROT.
    To use this feature, add <no_ios_reload/> to the <app> node in your meta.xml file.
    wiiloaded binaries automatically gain direct hardware access.
    libogc SVN (starting with r4166) has been extended for this feature. DI_Init() will detect if an application has been launched this way, and DVD access should just work without any changes to your code.
    USB access is more stable, thanks to tueidj
    Fixed the retry mechanism for the network initialization.
    Fixed some rare hangs upon launch and exit (Hopefully all of them).
    A little surprise, to be announced soon. Refrain from bugging us about it, you’ll know soon enough
    If you have installed HBC v1.0.7, it is safe to update your Wii to System Menu v4.3.

    Please note that HBC’s update check now contains data in the referrer string unique to each Wii. Its sole purpose is for anonymous usage statistics.

    Before asking questions, please read the included README files. You will also find information about how to report problems and encountered bugs.

    Thanks to all the beta testers, it’s been a long ride.

    Either grab the new installer here, or use the HBC online update (a confirmation dialog should pop up when launching an older version of HBC).

    As always: Please link to this post instead of mirroring the binary, thanks.

    Enjoy.

    Can somebody post a copy of what is in their bootmii.ini after the update?

    I have edited mine by using Bootmii Cfg Editor on the Wii and now when I turn my Wii on I get a black screen unless I remove the SD card in which case it boots up fine.

    I hope somebody out there can help. My bootmii.ini currently says:

    # BootMii config file
    # Created by bootmii config editor

    # Video mode, possible settings:
    # NTSC, PAL50, PAL60, PROGRESSIVE
    VIDEO=PAL60

    # Autoboot, possible settings:
    # SYSMENU, HBC
    AUTOBOOT=SYSMENU
    BOOTDELAY=0

    Yeah I'm also getting the same problem. My card setting looks identical to yours too. ;(

    For now I'm having to just take my sd card when i first boot. Very strange?


    edit: I reinstalled bootmii and all seems good now.

    From another forum I have been told this:
