    LetterBomb 4.3 exploit released

    As you recall there was recently news that Giantpune was working on a mailbox exploit which would circumvent the need to have a physical game disc to exploit system menu 4.3. This news is a couple weeks old tomorrow.

    The Hackmii guys went ahead and released a hack themselves, stating the wait for pune's hack was too long in their announcement.

    If you recall, a similar thing happened with one of the lego game hacks.

    Introducing: LetterBomb (the letter from heaven)

    Up until now the only way to liberate your Wii console and enable the use of homebrew with System Menu 4.3 was to use a gamedisc based exploit such as “BatHaxx”, “Return of the Jodi” and others.

    Today we are announcing a project that changes this completely and removes the requirement for an exploitable game.

    In memory of BannerBomb, we present you with LetterBomb , a brand new System Menu exploit that will allow you to enable homebrew with the push of an envelope (no stamp licking involved)

    This exploit reuses (and abuses) some of some Nintendo’s Wii Messageboard functionality.

    You will need:

    • A Wii running System Menu 4.3 (E/U/J/K)
    • A SD(HC) card with some free space
    • Your Wii’s WiFi MAC Address (available from your Wii’s system settings)
    • A few minutes of your time

    For this very special occasion we have created an easy-peasy webpage that takes away some of the pain that is usually involved with getting homebrew onto your system:

    http://please.hackmii.com



    This webpage will ask you for some necessary information (such as your System Menu region and MAC address), and will then return a nicely packaged ZIP file that is ready for extraction to the root of your SD card. Simple eh?

    All that is missing from that point is a boot.elf/boot.dol file (that you will need to place in the root of your card), and you should be good to go. For your convenience we have an option to prepackage and bundle the HackMii Installer boot.elf (this is enabled by default).

    So, how do I do this?

    Simple…. once you’ve unzipped the file to your SD card (and inserted it) just navigate to the “messageboard” on your Wii and in the default view you should browse to “yesterday” (the place where you usually see yesterday’s messages) – sometimes this may be “today” (this depends on the timezone you are in).

    From this view you will be presented with a small envelope (that should obviously stand out against the rest of your plain old boring ones), click it, kick back, twiddle your thumbs (the Brits among you, go and make a cup of tea) cross your fingers and hope it worked.

    DISCLAIMER: We are aware of a similar exploit by giantpune (good work!), but as of today this has not been released. In anticipation of its release we decided to reverse engineer, hack and implement something ourselves.
    Entire article.

    Ah, was wondering with the MAC address how it was gonna be noob-proofed in making sure the right files/addresses thing was going to be solved --- excellent. A bit stealing of GiantPune's thunder, tho. Ah well, the bottom line is it helps users NOW instead of "when."

    Thanks for fixing it. I thought I made it a hyperlink.

    Edit: I just tested it with 4.1 and it doesn't work (it froze). I know it says you need 4.3 in the article, but I wanted to make sure that wasn't just because you can use BB on 3.0-4.2 instead.

    And the race is on to create an offline compiler.

    Glad to see that this was released but I wish Giantpune could have taken the credit.

    Yeah, that really sucks for him.

    Has anyone here tested this with a 4.3 Wii yet? If not, I'll update and test it tonight.
