BootMii Configuration Editor v2.5 (Wii Application)

BootMii Configuration Editor llows you to change the values in the /bootmii/bootmii.ini file without having to take out the SD card and edit it on a PC.

Changes:

– Implementation Of BootMii Switch functionality. Can enable/disable BootMii through the editor by renaming the directory from /bootmii to /~bootmii and vice versa
– If /bootmii and /~bootmii exist you are given the option to switch the directories allowing you to use an alternate MINI implementation such as MIKE.
– If bootmii.ini exists in both directories you are given the choice of which to edit.
– The homebrew channel icon is swapped depending on the mode to give an indication of the bootmii status. A green circle indicates bootmii is enabled, a red circle indicates bootmii is disabled, and an orange circle indicates you are running in switch mode.
– Several fixes to resolve various minor issues.

SRB2Wii v2.0.0 (RC3) (Wii Game Port)

SRB2Wii is an unofficial port of the 3D platformer fangame Sonic Robo Blast 2.

Sonic Robo Blast 2 is a 3D open-source Sonic the Hedgehog fangame built using a modified version of the Doom Legacy port of Doom. SRB2 is closely inspired by the original Sonic games from the Sega Genesis, and attempts to recreate the design in 3D. While SRB2 isn’t fully completed, it already features tons of levels, enemies, speed, and quite a lot of the fun that the original Sonic games provided.

StartPatch v4.3.1U (Wii Application)

StartPatch is a homebrew application that patches your System Menu v4.0, v4.1, or v4.2 in a similar fashion as Starfall. It is based upon Menu Patcher by Isaac356.

Features:

Region Free Wii Games – Allows you to Play Import Titles.
IOS Selection – Allows you to select which IOS you would like to use.
Disable HAXX, DVDX, RZDx Checks – Disables the System Menu from blocking Homebrew.
Block Disc Updates – Blocks updates which have been embedded in Discs.
Block Online Updates – Prevents online updates being installed.
Region Free Channels – Allow installation of any region Channels.
Region Free GC Games No VM Patch – Removes region restrictions on Gamecube games.
Remove NoCopy Protection (Need To Install ALL Five) – Removes the Save File Copy Protection, which prevents Save Files from being copied to SD Cards.
Move Disc Channel – Enables the Disc Channel to be moved.
No Menu BG Music – Removes the System Menu’s background music.
Recovery Mode 4th GC DPad UP – Allows you to enter the Wii’s Recovery Mode easily.
Remove Diag Disc Check – Remove Diagnostic Disc check.
Auto-Press A At Health Screen – Automatically presses “A” for you at the Health Screen.
Replace Health Screen with Backmenu – No longer displays black/white health warning screen, so no need to press A, it will go straight to the channels screen.

Brick Warning
In the unlikely case that you lose power during patching process, you may brick your Wii. This will only happen if you lose power while the patches are being applied, and as this is a quick process, there is small risk of bricking. However, if you do brick, no one is responsible. There is no warranty with this app. You should take a BootMii NAND dump and have BootMii installed as boot2 (if possible) as a precaution.
