Latest update in my efforts to save my beloved wii.
1) Bought a new wii branded sandisk sd card 2gb.
2) copied my bootmii backup and my nand and key backups
3) attempted to do another nand restore, succeeded same thing didnt make any difference
4) tried to use bootmini.elf same thing not showing up in my directory listing
I spent a little while (all last night) forum diving and saw something mention system menu 3.2 update upgrading boot2 to v4 which my info screen is showing. Is it possible my roommate updating my wii overwrote my bootmii in boot2 partially rendering it useful enough to give me a menu, but useless enough to not be able to execute anything from it? I may just be grasping at straws here but i cant seem to execute any elf file on my sd card except ppcboot.elf which of course just boots bootmii again. I'm going to try grabbing a fresh copy of the bootmii files from the forum for my sd card and seeing if it makes any difference, maybe my backup of them is corrupt?
