    Nand backup pointless with Bootmii as IOS?

    I can't install bootmii as boot2, only as IOS. I did a backup of my nand, but somewhere I read that it is advised *not* to restore your NAND (in case of a brick) if bootmii is installed as an IOS, so whats the point? Hopefully someone can clear this up for me.

    Do you have Priiloader installed? If so it is a good idea to backup your NAND even with bootmii installed as an IOS as there are other ways of restoring it. Search it and im sure you'll find a more detailed answer then that. hope this helps.

    Yeah, I have priiloader installed, and backed up my NAND last night. Everybody seems to talk down on installing bootmii as an IOS as if it's not even worth doing...so I was just curious. Thanks
