    BootMii Problems

    So i hacked my Wii 2 months ago and made a NAND backup and saved it on the USB.
    Last month i wanted to save it on the PC but it got corrupted, tried to make another one backup but i can't load BootMii.
    I click on the HBC Home button and choose launch BootMii.
    The Screen gets black and the Wii flashes.
    I did had some BootMii things on the SD Card but i deleted it with ModMii cause i didn't need them.
    Now i wanna ask u guys how to make it work again so i can load it from HBC channel from the Launch BootMii button.

    you need to have a bootmii folder in SD root.
    don't have it ? procced hackmii_installer once again, you'll regain the bootmii folder in SD.
    FYI
    the folder consists armboot.bin bootmii and ppcboot.elf

    When you are in the hackmii installer, you have the option to Prepare Your Sd Card.
    Start up the Hackmii installer, Press Continue then Select Bootmii, then select Prepare The Sd Card...Now you can install the bootmii.
    You have to prepare the sd card and then the bootmii and the files will be added to your sd card , then you can install bootmii and make a back-up of your nand/keys.

    I found a already prepared hackmii for PAL Wii-s here on Wiihacks and i downloaded it.
    It had the files armboot.bin bootmii and ppcboot.elf in it so i just copied the map to the SD and next tiem when i booted the Wii i got the BootMii thing on.
    I made a backup with it.
    Can i use that NAND backup if my Wii gets bricked?

    Yes, if it installed as boot2 then you can re-install it, if your wii bricked.
    Now if it only installed as an Ios , then you have to send it to a nand programmer, so they can restore it.
    Either way save your nand/keyswith the bootmii folder safe.
