Is this update to combat 4.2 firmware?

The cause of this update was indeed 4.2. However there are other changes (taken from hackmii.com):

HackMii installer (v0.5):

* New exploit to enable (un-)installation of all components on fully updated Wiis.
* Fix hangs on some setups (they’re all related to retarded IOS patches).

BootMii beta 4 (v1.1):

* Properly write the keys to nand.bin.
This fixes the “NAND dump is from another Wii” issue on restoring beta 3 backups. If you don’t know how to fix those dumps, you have to backup the NAND again. Dumps from all other versions are not affected.

The Homebrew Channel v1.0.5:

* Faster startup.
* Prefer boot.elf over boot.dol when launching apps.
* New shiny fonts, tweaked to the last subpixel.
* Widescreen support.
If your Wii is set to 16:9 in the system menu options, HBC won’t stretch the picture like it did on older versions. Unfortunately the fonts might look a little weird then, it really depends on the used display unit. Blame the lack of true widescreen support on the Wii for that.
* Grid view.
Hit 2/Y while browsing applications to switch between the old and the new view. This shows 4 columns on 16:9 setups, 4:3 users only get 3.
* Device hot-plugging.
You can remove and insert devices (front SD slot, USB mass storage, and SDGecko in both slots) at all times now without reloading HBC.
To change to another device, hit 1/X to bring up a simple option dialog.
* Application sort order.
You can now choose how to sort the shown entries. Current options: either by the name or by the release date.
Note that for the latter sort order a valid release_date tag has to be present in the meta.xml file.
Again, hit 1/X for the options dialog to set this.
* wiiload overhaul.
On-the-fly compression: Uploaded files are automatically compressed on PC side: This makes it way faster, especially on bigger files. ScummVM, anyone?
Improved USBGecko support: Faster uploads, and you don’t have to stop reading debug messages from the device while uploading files.
libftdi support: Because ftdi-sio fails, especially on OSX.
Note: Because of these improvements, older wiiload version and 3rd party upload clients are incompatible. Use the bundled v0.5, binaries and source code are included.
* Basic application management.
To add apps: Just wiiload a ZIP archive, it will then get extracted to the active device. The ZIP file must be structured in a certain way, check this description for the details.
To delete apps: There’s a new button on the application dialog.


* Allow PPC side hardware access.
Also known as the magic HW_AHBPROT register.
* TMD version bumped to 2, in case anyone needs to check for e.g. HW_AHBPROT.

Nintendo basically failed, as long as you have a copy of indiana jones or SSBB.

All they did was block the old HBC title (HAXX), so twiizer only had to change it and it works.
