This homebrew application makes permanent changes to the Wii's NAND, thus, this application should be used with caution.

It is recommended to have a NAND backup with either BootMii as boot2 or Priiloader with BootMii as IOS installed before proceeding with the usage of this application.

This homebrew can't be used on the Wii Mini. Attempting to use this homebrew on the Wii Mini could brick the system because of hardware differences.

RiiConnect24 is a service for the Wii, serving as a replacement for the discontinued WiiConnect24 service. Created in 2015 by Larsenv, AwesomeMarioFan and PokeAcer, RiiConnect24 allowed you to visit once offline apps like the Nintendo Channel, Everybody Votes Channel, and the Forecast Channel.


Check Mii Out Channel/Mii Contest Channel

The Check Mii Out Channel/Mii Contest Channel works the same way as the original worked. It allows you to share and rate Miis with other RiiConnect24 users around the world. Contests are also supported, allowing you to vote on your favorite Miis.

Everybody Votes Channel

The Everybody Votes Channel works the same way as the original worked. It allows you to suggest polls and vote on polls.

Forecast Channel

The Forecast Channel works the same way that the original Forecast Channel did. However, it uses AccuWeather rather than Weathernews.

News Channel

The News Channel gets the latest news updates from many trustworthy sources of news.

Wii Speak Channel

The Wii Speak Channel works the same way as the old one did, you can send voice messages to other Wiis and voice chat with people. This requires a Wii Speak.

Wii Mail

Wii Mail is the same as the original Wii Mail service. It works with some games, at this time.


The IOSes installed have pre-3.3rev03 patches, meaning homebrew channels can be loaded from the SD card.


RiiConnect24 works exactly the same as WiiConnect24 previously did. You can register each other using your friend codes, and send each other mail and Miis.


There was a brief time where a competing project, Disconnect24 was being worked on. After Disconnect24 shut down, RiiConnect24 was the only remaining and working WiiConnect24 revival service, up until 2022, when WiiLink started their own WiiConnect24 revival. On 29 December 2023, it merged with WiiLink.
