<b style="color:red;">NOTE: Whilst the [http://bannerbomb.qoid.us/index.old.php original version] of Bannerbomb (the version which launches via Data Management) does not support [[System Menu 4.2]], the [http://bannerbomb.qoid.us/index.new.php updated version] (launches via the SD Card Menu) does!</b>
The original Bannerbomb exploit does not work with [[System Menu 4.2]], it only works with [[System Menu 4.1]] or older. However [http://bannerbomb.qoid.us/index.new.php Bannerbomb v2] has been released by Comex, and works on 4.2. No version of Bannerbomb works on [[System Menu 4.3]] or newer; use a different [[exploit]].
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 [http://bootmii.org/ HackMii Installer].
