Starfall: it as the title says it is the ultimate resource for any Wii homebrew user, it has a wide range of functions that range from “bricked” (unfunctioning) Wii recovery, to update blocking.
Starfall’s Functions (all optional) are:
Gamecube game, Wii game, and Wii channel reigon freeing- With these hacks you can make your Wii play games and use channels that are not from your Wii’s reigon. Tricky!
Wii main menu BGM (Background Music) removal- If you find the BGM when your wii boots annoying you can finally get rid of it! Yay!
Rescue Menu- This is a very usefull tool that will open up when you hold the Y-button on the first Gamecube controller and will open a menu that may be able to unbrick your Wii! This is a very usefull little tool.
Replace the health warning with backmenu- This is a nifty little hack that will, as the name says replace the opening health warning with the backmenu.
Skip disc update check- This is perhaps th most usefull tool of all because it allows you to automaticly skip Disc updates (Nintendo’s evil and useless little patches that may remove your Wii’s homebrew ability).
