'''Bannerbomb''' is an exploit capable of launching [[homebrew]] from any version of the [[System Menu]]versions 4.0-4.2. It was created by Comex on April 5th, 2009, to replace the [[Twilight Hack]], which does not work on since [[System Menu 4.0]].
<b style="color:red;">NOTE: The [ original ] Bannerbomb exploit does not work with [[System Menu 4.2]], it only works with [[System Menu 4.1]] or older. However [ Bannerbomb v2] has been released by Comex, and works on 4.2. No version of Bannerbomb works on [[System Menu 4.3]] without previous mods; use [[LetterBomb]], [[Smash Stack]], [[Indiana Pwns]], [[Bathaxx]], [[Yu-Gi-Vah]] (NTSC-U/J only), [[Yu-Gi-OWNED!]] (PAL version of Yu-Gi-Vah), [[Eri HaKawai]], [[FlashHax]], [[Bluebomb]], [[Return of the Jodi]] and [[Str2hax]] instead. </b>
The exploit works by using a malformed banner to crash the Wii and run code to load the boot.dol placed in the root of the SD card. It can be used to install the [[Homebrew Channel]], DVDx and the BootMii public beta via the [ [HackMii Installer]].

== Troubleshooting ==
If your Wii freezes while trying to use Bannerbomb, follow these diagnostics:
* Repeat the procedure with the same version once or twice. It can be fickle.
* Make sure you're not trying to use the SD Menu on System Menu 4.0 (the little blue SD card button in the lower left).
* Check that you pressed the Channels button in Data Management.
* Make sure that Bannerbomb is the only channel on the SD card.
* Try a different version of Bannerbomb. Most people should be able to use aad1fthe recommended version of BannerBomb given, but some might need another version.
* Eject the SD card, go into the channels menu, then on SD where it says no SD card is inserted, then insert the card (works for Toshiba 256MB cards and Menu 4.0E at least)
== Bugs ==
*If it gives you the dialog but freezes instead of loading the elf/dol, email Comex ( comexk @ gmail dot com ). Tell him where it froze and whether or not the slot light is on. You might also try removing the disc.*If you press "no" when it asks you whether you want to load a elf/dol then it might freeze.*It is possible to press the back button "under" the dialog. Make sure you don't do that.
== Changelog ==
