Default Goodies for folks running Wii System Menu v4.0

I apolgize for my lateness in posting about this, but recently Comex released what he calls "BannerBomb". What this is, is a new homebrew exploit that works in System Menu 4.0 and lower. It is so far the only way to run/install any kind of homebrew software on Wii Menu 4.0. This exploits some sort of flaw in the "Channels" Data management section of the Wii's menu (presumably something to do with the banner). If you have System Menu 4.0 and want to try some of the Wii emulators on this site, now you can.

You can get BannerBomb on Comex's site.

Also, Team Twiizers (the team that created the Twilight Hack, the original Wii homebrew exploit and the Homebrew Channel) have released today the "Hackmii Installer". This will install the Homebrew Channel, DVDx (needed by homebrew for loading files from DVD), and an early beta of BootMii onto a Wii of any System Menu. The Homebrew Channel/DVDx were previouisly not able to be installed on System Menu 4.0, and this should also be usable with Bannerbomb. If you are serious about homebrew, this is the most convenient way to load it.

You can grab it from the Hackmii blog. Keep in mind that BootMii is beta. If you don't know what it is or are unsure about it, don't install it yet.

I just wanted to note that I've installed BootMii and it's working well. There isn't a ton someone like I can do with it yet, but I intend to use it to make an image of my Wii's NAND later.
*edit*
And I've done it. I really like it's interface for doing this. It's rather like the Windows 98 scandisk (in DOS mode). Didn't take very long either.
