'''Bathaxx''' is a safe way to enable [[homebrew]] on a Wii without hardware modification. Bathaxx is achieved by playing a hacked game save for LEGO Batman which executes a homebrew application from an external SD card. Examples of such homebrew .elf or .dol files can be found on the [[List of homebrew applications|Homebrew applications]] page. The bathaxx was created by [[Team Twiizers]] & [[User:Lewurm|lewurm]].
== Usage & Installation ==
#SD card (not
SHDC) formatted as FAT16 or FAT32
#Some possibility to copy the savegame from the PC to the SD card (i.e. card reader)
#LEGO Batman ;-) (you have to boot it at least once before)
#(OPTIONAL) If you have an existing "LEGO Batman" savegame. MOVE it to another SD CARD.
#Copy the "private" directory from the ''Bathaxx'' download to the root of your SD card.
#Take your homebrew and put it in the ROOT of your SD card as "boot.elf"
#Put your SD card in your Wii and turn it on.
#Go into Wii Options -> Data Management -> Save Data -> Wii.
#Go to SD card and select the "Bathaxx" savegame that corresponds to your game region.
#NOTE: Some people are having problems with the Wii not "seeing" the savegame 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>".

#wiihelp on Efnet.
#Copy the savegame to the Wii.
#Boot LEGO Batman.
#Load the saved game you just copied to the Wii.
#You are now in the batcave, take the elevator on the right side. Then in the trophy room, go to the upper corner and go through the door in order to enter the "Wayne Manor". Now you can select a character. Choose the last enabled one in the lowest row.
== FAQ ==
::There's no easy way to merge saves between files. Use the Bathaxx to install the [[Homebrew Channel]], then copy your old savefile back into place. You probably don't want to merge your save anyway, Nintendo's M.O. of fixing these things is to simply delete the entire save when found.
