Direct Download link to Lego Indiana Jones Exploit - Indiana Pwns

youtube video

Required materials

* SD card (<= 2GB, not SDHC) formatted as FAT16 or FAT32. (The game, and therefore the exploit, can only read SD cards, not SDHC)
* SD card reader
* A LEGO Indiana Jones game that has been played at least once
* Some homebrew to load (e.g. the Homebrew Channel installer) 

Step by step

  1. Ensure your SD card is formatted as FAT. By default SD cards are formatted as FAT, so if you’re not sure you can skip this step.
  2. (Optional) If you have an existing Indiana save that you want to backup, do so before proceeding:
    1. Put your SD card in your Wii and turn it on.
    2. Go into Wii Options --> Data Management --> Save Data --> Wii
    3. Find your Indiana save, click on it, click “Copy”, and click Yes
    4. Put your SD card in your computer, and copy the “private” folder from the card to a safe place.
  3. Copy the “private” directory from the Indiana Pwns download to the root of your SD card.
  4. Take your homebrew Wii executable (ELF file) and save it in the root directory of your SD card as “boot.elf”.
  5. Put your SD card in your Wii and turn it on.
  6. Go into Wii Options --> Data Management --> Save Data --> Wii.
  7. Find your Indiana save, click on it, click “Erase”, and click Yes.
  8. Open the SD card and select the “Indiana Pwns” save that corresponds to your game region. Note: Some people are having problems with the Wii not “seeing” the save file on the SD card. If you are experiencing this, try setting the archive bit for the data.bin file - in Windows this can be either be done from the file’s properties dialog (right click on it in Windows Explorer and check the box) or from the command line using “attrib +a <path to data.bin>”. More info at #wiihelp on Efnet.
  9. Click copy and then yes. Now exit out of the menu.
  10. Insert LEGO Indiana Jones disc and run the game.
  11. Walk to the “art room” (find some walkthrough on the intertubes if you cannot find it), look at the second character.

the original hackmii installer i included will get deleted everytime you start your wii.

here is a new installer for use on SM 4.2, hackmii installer 0.5

this is safe to use on all versions of wii system menu. this gives the HBC and DVDx different title IDs thus playing games with nintendo to delete homebrew channel. another failed attempt by nintendo. none of the applications which use DVDx will work with the new DVDx but any of the good apps will get updated in the days to come.

im still interested if IOS249 is installable? will keep you updated.

okay here it is, everything here is for an offline install of every mod you need for your 4.2 wii.

i cant take the credit for this one. please read the readmii.
