    If you have bootmii/boot2v2 then bootmii can be overwritten with a stock boot2v4 update - if this was done and bootmii was wiped out AND you bricked your Wii, you will need someone to reprogram the nand.

    If you update to boot2v4 while the wii is working, then reinstall bootmii, there is no boot2 update that is greater than v4, therefore it cant be overwritten by an update, which means your wii is recoverable no matter what ever you do.


    There is no preference in boot2 revision other than the above.

    Ah, so it's more time of night or perhaps a further refining/bullet-proofing. As things are, if updates are blocked via Priiloader --- there'd be no need to update it, correct? Thanks, tired at this end, LOL.

    Pretty much.

    I update all Wii's to boot2v4 that I repair, just for more protection. and in the context of the user I was replying to, updating to boot2v4 is much easier than leaving a socket attached to the Wii "just incase"

    As I said previously tho - I'm not entirely sure what effect the homebrew version (with different keys) will have on using it as a NAND flasher.

    i see ur point !
    the normal version sounds a bit promising, as there's less info posted.... i don't want to make my hobbies complicated.
    thx for the reminder.

    billyhome I got the InFectuS at modsupplierdotcom. Fast shiping from Aus. to US w/ DHL.

    Bad_Ad84 i'm rocking boot2v4. You right about the socket, I don't know what I was thinking, but it was fun to do anyway. (Made the removable cover and everything, so no need to disassemble wii.)
    I just have a little oops to take care of with preloader hack.ini (not there). Shouldn't be bad to take care of from what I've read.

    kemeam, wow~~, across the pacific ocean ! thx.
    solder a low profile tsop socket and make a "window" on the Wii cover, so easy to swap nand chip for every "update/region change". would u? .... lol
