    Still cannot figure out how to back up the Nand

    I am still trying to figure this out. I previously softmodded my 4.2u so I can load ISO games with USB Loader GX. My SD card now has several folders. There is a bootmii folder on the root of the drive containing 3 files. There is also a cboot2 folder in which there is a subfolder "try this 2nd", and in this subfolder, there is a bootmii subfolder containing the same 3 files. So there are 2 bootmii folders -- the one subbed under the cboot2 folder and a separate bootmii folder in the root of the drive. Which one of these folders do I use to load bootmii? Do I need to copy or overwrite certain files, or empty the SD card and re-install anything?

    Thanks.

    If you used the hackmii installer to install bootmii and you didn't touch anything else, it should load when you boot up the console assuming you've got the SD card in the wii. Reinstalling it should put the proper folderrs in your SD card and patch boot2 if it's not working.
    I'm not sure, but I'm assuming that cboot2 would load a certain program relavent to whatever guide you were following to hack your wii.

    Starkiller95, right now when I try to load bootmii from the Homebrew Channel, the Custom IOS Installer screen comes up, not bootmii. This is that cartoon screen with the loud rock music. I had to install Bootmii as an IOS because I have a newer Wii.

    Cile, there is a bootmii folder on the root of the SD card, but only the Custom IOS Installer screen comes up. And which Bootmii folder are you referring to? I have 2 bootmii folders. One on the root of the drive, which does not seem to be loading, and another one which is a sub-sub folder.

    Okay, so you were following a guide to get USBLoaders working and gave you that folder which makes bootmii load up the IOS installer, and you've lost the original bootmii folder. Either someone could upload their bootmii folder for you to download or you reinstall bootmii.

    Maybe what I need to do is move the bootmii subfolder that is in my cboot2 folder to the root of the drive, and empty the rest of the SD card? I am trying to understand why I have 2 bootmii folders -- one being on the root of the SD card right now, and the other as a subfolder under the cboot2 folder. I also don't understand what cboot2 is.

    I suppose I can empty the SD card, and reinstall bootmii using the hackmii installer, but I don't want to mess up the softmodding I previously did or end up bricking the Wii. Those are my concerns.

    It's highly unlikely that you'll brick your wii. You're installing it to an unused IOS instead of the essential boot2, so there're next to no risk of brickage. I've never heard of the Hackmii installer bricking anyone single-handed anyway.
    You wouldn't need to empty your SD card to reinstall it, just delete (or rename, or move) the bootmii folder. Might not even be necessary.
    I have no idea what cboot2 is, only one way to find out.

    Place the attached files on an SD card which is at least 1Gb and has more than 540Mb free space

    Just make sure you rename the bootmii folder to something like bootmii.cboot2 or whatever before you place the files on your SD card.

    Thanks. Before I do this, should I be putting these files on a blank SD card? And why do I have to rename the folder?

    An empty card is easier. If you do not rename the folder your old cboot2 files are overwritten. Not a problem to me but if you don't have them you need to find them again
    Don't rename the folder of the files I have attached.
