Yu-Gi-OWNED! is an exploit for Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's Wheelie Breakers. It was only made for the PAL region, but the unofficial port (Yu-Gi-Vah) works on NTSC-U and NTSC-J Wii's.


  • An SD card (Best results are with non-SDHC cards, SDHC will only work on 4.0 or above) or USB device formatted to FAT(32).

  • Something to boot, like the Hackmii Installer.

  • Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's Wheelie Breakers.



Computer ----------------------

1. Rename the Private folder on your SD card to "privateold".

2. Download the Yu-Gi-OWNED!/Vah exploit for your region. In the pack should be a "private" folder, copy it to the SD card root.

3. Place whatever dol/elf you want to boot (usually the hackmii installer) in the SD card root.

Wii ----------------------

4. Go to the Data Management (Wii button > Data Management > Save Data > SD). Copy the Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's save file to your Wii.

5. Play Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's Wheelie Breakers. Press A on the title screen to see a loading message. The exploit should kick in a few seconds later.

Additional Hackmii installer steps:

5. You will see a Scam warning screen.

Wait for the message at the bottom to appear, then press 1.

6. You will see a screen like this one:

Depending on your Wii, it will show different things behind BootMii:.

  • If you see Can be installed, you can get BootMii as boot2 (which gives the best brick protection there is).

  • If you see Can only be installed as an IOS, you can only get BootMii as IOS (which will give you NO brick protection on its own).

Press A to continue.

Now we get to the main menu, where we can install everything.

First install the Homebrew Channel (choose Yes, continue).

The Homebrew Channel will now be installed on your Wii.

Optional (Recommended) Steps: Installing BootMii

BootMii is a helps greatly with Brick protection and it is recommended to install it.

It is not required however.

These steps don't work on WiiU

7. In the HackMii main menu, choose BootMii... and press A. You will get another menu.

8. Before BootMii will work, we need to prepare our SD card, so do that first with the third option.

9. Install BootMii as IOS. This will always work.

10. If you're one of the lucky winners, choose install Bootmii as Boot2, then Yes, continue and let it install.

Once you're done, return to the Main menu and choose Exit. It will launch the Homebrew Channel. You can press Home to bring up a menu and reboot the console.

Computer ----------------------

11. Don't forget to restore your old private folder if you had one!

If you installed BootMii (Wii only)

If you installed BootMii, regardless whether it was as boot2 or IOS, it is recommended you use it to create a NAND backup. This backup can be used to restore the Wii to a working state in case you brick it.

You can learn about launching BootMii and making a backup on the BootMii page.

If you installed BootMii as Boot2, the BootMii menu will appear every time you boot your Wii.

  • If you don't want this, rename/move the "bootmii" folder on the SD card.

  • Alternatively, you can enable Wii menu auto-boot in the configuration file.

So, what's next?

It mostly depends on what you want to do.

I want to run basic homebrew applications:

=> You are already done! Visit the list of Homebrew Applications on Wiibrew. You can also view our Homebrew Channel page if you need help setting things up.

I want to load backup games from a USB drive, install WADs:

=> Continue on to install a cIOS which will allow you to use these more advanced apps.

I want to change the system menu theme (Wii only, will brick WiiU):

=> First install Priiloader for additional brick protection, then read up on MyMenuify, the app which allows you to change the system menu theme.
