Soft­mod your Wii with HomeBrew and play cracked games

Hack­ing your Wii has­n’t been dif­fi­cult, but it has required a some­what detailed pro­cess. Now we have Let­ter­Bomb, which is an incred­ibly simple way to hack your Wii. It only takes about five minutes to accom­plish. Here’s how to do it.

First things first, you’re going to need the fol­low­ing:

  • A Nin­tendo Wii, obvi­ously, but make sure it’s run­ning Sys­tem Menu 4.3
  • An SD or SDHC card with some free space—it can have oth­er stuff on it.

Step One: Get Your Wii’s MAC Address

Before we can do any­thing, we need to go find your Wii’s MAC Address. Go to your Wii’s home screen and click the Wii Options but­ton. Once it loads, choose Wii Set­tings. From there, nav­ig­ate to the second page and click the Inter­net but­ton. Finally, click the Con­sole Inform­a­tion but­ton and you’ll have your Wii’s MAC address. Either write this down or just leave it up on your screen.

Step Two: Gen­er­ate the Let​ter​Bomb​.zip File

Now get on your com­puter and go to please​.hack​mii​.com and enter your Wii’s MAC address. You’ll also need to type in what you see in the captcha image. Once you’ve filled those things out, cut the red or the blue wire. It does­n’t really mat­ter. This will gen­er­ate a Let​ter​Bomb​.zip file that will start down­load­ing.

Step Three: Pre­pare the SD Card

Now insert your SD or SDHC card into your com­puter, because we’re going to need to copy some files onto it. First, unzip the Let​ter​Bomb​.zip file on your com­puter. Next, drag the con­tents of the zip to your SD or SDHC card. When it’s done copy­ing, eject it, and put it in your Wii.

Step Four: Open the Let­ter­Bomb

Back on the Wii, head on over to the Wii Mes­sage Cen­ter. There’s going to be a new mes­sage for you with a bomb in it, but where that mes­sage is going to be will depend on your time zone and when you gen­er­ated the file. In most cases, it will be in yes­ter­day’s mail, but it could be today or a couple of days ago. You’ll know when you see it. When you’re ready to pull the trig­ger, just click on the Let­ter­Bomb mes­sage icon. The pro­cess will take about a minute, so be patient. You’ll have a hacked Wii when it’s done.

If you run into any issues along the way it’s prob­ably because you don’t have the right ver­sion of the Wii Sys­tem Menu. If you try to use Let­ter­Bomb with the wrong ver­sion, it’ll freeze your Wii. Not to worry—just force-reboot your Wii, make sure you update prop­erly, and try again. Obvi­ously you want to do the update before­hand, but in the event you for­get it’s not really a big deal.

Step Five: Install Boot­Mii and the Homebrew Chan­nel

Once Let­ter­Bomb has done its thing, it’ll tell you to press 1 to con­tin­ue. Do that and you’ll be able to use your WiiMote to start installing things. What you’re really inter­ested in is the Homebrew Chan­nel, but Boot­Mii will provide you with some extra fea­tures (like backup). Once everything is installed, you’ll be all set.

Step Six: Down­load the games and install them on to a USB stick

Use WBFS Man­ager to format a USB stick and mount the games. Its pretty simple.
Find the game ISO or RAR files online
Format the USB using WBFS, load the USB and then mount the appro­pri­ate file. DONE
