The first and foremost thing to do is to update your Wii software. You should have the latest version of Wii. Next, play the Brawl and make backups of all the steps and store them in your SD card. Copy the contents of the card on to your machine.

Now insert the SD card in your machine and begin downloading the SmashStack material as well as the HackMii Installer. Both of them are in the format of a zip file. Unzip both the files and copy the folder on to your SD card.

How to Use BootMii?

BootMii, as the name suggests, is a boot loader and it can be used only for Wii’s that were manufactured before mid 2008. A BootMii is very similar to GRUB/LiLo in its functionality, however, the former lets you make backups of the memory of your Wii.
