Télécharger HackMii Installer v0.2
BootMii, public beta 2
Copyright 2007-2009, Team Twiizers
All rights reserved; do not redistribute
This software has received only limited testing. We consider it to be stable (and safe),
but it still contains bugs and has only been tested on a handful of Wiis. It does not
contain many features that will be useful or interesting to most Wii owners, so we
recommend that only expert users or developers install it. If you encounter any bugs,
please provide feedback so we may fix them in the next release.
When possible, we have erred on the side of caution, so the installer may refuse to install
on some Wiis if safety checks fail. If this happens, please send us the install.log file
(described below), so we can correct the problem.
* Initial release
I. Packing list
The HackMii installer comes as one main executable; in addition to installing BootMii into
your NAND (either inside boot2 or as IOS254), it will create several files on your SD card:
/bootmii/armboot.bin - Starlet-resident code (MINI) -- this loads ppcboot.elf
/bootmii/ppcboot.elf - BootMii shell - this is the GUI that is displayed
when BootMii runs.
/bootmii/bootmii.ini - BootMii shell configuration file. See below
/install.log - installation log. After you install BootMii,
please email the contents of this file to
email@example.com so we can track any issues that emerge.
After installation, the file /nand.bin may be created; see below.
II. Installation notes
You have two options to install BootMii. Each carries its pros and cons, and not all options
are available for all Wiis. Specifically:
* BootMii/boot2: This mode will install BootMii into 2 blank blocks in the boot2 area of your
Wii. It will take over the function of the normal boot2. If no SD card is
detected or armboot.bin is not found on the SD card, the drive slot LED will
flash briefly and the normal system menu will boot.
Pros: Independant of system menu and the rest of NAND flash. Can boot even if the
rest of the system is completely corrupted. Allows for safe backup / restore
of NAND flash from SD card. Allows direct boot of Homebrew Channel, or other
Cons: Relies on a vulnerability in boot1 that was fixed mid-2008; if your Wii is
newer than this, the HackMii Installer will not allow you to install this
form of BootMii. Installation is complicated and slightly risky; we have
tested it and believe it to be safe, but a power failure at the wrong time
during installation could leave your system unusable.
* BootMii/IOS: This mode will install BootMii into your NAND filesystem as an IOS (IOS254).
It behaves identically to BootMii/boot2, but you must launch it from a special
program (the Installer, Homebrew Channel, or your own code.)
Pros: Universal compatibility with all Wiis. Allows booting arbitrary code
on ARM / PPC. Supports speedy backup of NAND to SD. Very safe to install.
Cons: Easily deletable or overwritten by a system update. NAND restore is
technically possible, but not safe because you cannot boot to BootMii/IOS
in case the contents of your NAND flash are corrupted.
Uninstallation: In either case, uninstallation is straightforward, but not yet implemented for
Beta 1. We do not expect many people to need to manually uninstall, but if you
have a dire need we may be able to help you out. Future releases will come
with a simple uninstall option in the installer.
I. NAND Backup/Restore
The NAND Backup/Restore code takes some shortcuts to improve backup and restore speed. Upon
backup, if your card is not "properly formatted", then you will be prompted for permission to
reformat the card. It will be reformatted as FAT32 and given the volume "backupmii", and a
nand.bin file will be created in the root directory of the card. We suggest that you make a
backup of your Wii's NAND Flash, label the SD card and store it in a safe place in case you ever
need to recover from it.
II. Configuration file
BootMii will look for a configuration file at /bootmii/bootmii.ini.
It expects to see a file in the following form:
VIDEO=NTSC (or PAL50/PAL60/PROGRESSIVE)
AUTOBOOT=HBC (or SYSMENU)
BOOTDELAY=5 (or any other number)
More options may be added in the future.
III. bootmii / geckoloader client
A USBGecko-powered executable loader is included; while BootMii is running, you can upload a new
armboot.bin or ppcboot.elf file without restarting your system. BootMii will also output
diagnostic messages to the USBGecko as it boots.
You can invoke the client as "bootmii -a armboot.bin" to load code to the ARM (e.g. a modified version
of MINI), or "bootmii -p ppcboot.elf" to load code to the PPC. Please note that the ARM code will
generally reload the PPC code from SD, so if you want to load code to both processors, load
the ARM code first, followed by the PPC code.
IV. SD Menu
We have included a simple launcher for PPC ELF files on the SD card. Please note that any
binary that gets loaded will be running under mini, not under IOS. libogc binaries will
not run; we are investigating options for a future release.
