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). This is needed because the Wii will only accept messages addressed to its specific MAC address.
  • 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:

I'm a 4.2 man true & true. That being said, the last time I powered the Wii on was in 2010

I was wondering when this was gonna arrive!

I was lucky, I managed to pick up copy of Lego Indiana Jones a few months back for just thirty quid.

I just wish Ninty would provide useful updates for the Wii, in regards features, as opposed to security updates. Granted, the security updates are a necessity, but we haven't gotten any neat new features on the Wii in far too long.

My console is on 4.2E and last time i looked it was pretty difficult to softmod it.
Should I upgrade to 4.3 now as it sounds like this will make it more straightforward to mod?

Upgraded to 4.3 and used letterbomb.
Very straightforward and now have installed homebrew , browser and media centre.

Happy days.
