    Restoring NAND without Boot2

    I haven't had the need to do it i was just curious. I always see warning that restoring a NAND backup is not recommended if BootMii is installed as an IOS and NOT boot2. I can boot a new wii with Priiloader by holding the reset button then select bootmi but as far as i know that is launching it as an IOS. So how does someone with a Newer Wii without a vulnerable boot1 go about restoring a NAND backup? if restoring is not recommend then what is the point of backing it up in the first place. (triiforce, etc. asside of course.) I must be missing something about NAND restoring.
    If i helped you please click thanks.

    Well, you could use an Infectus to restore the NAND back-up. I don't know why it is 'not recommended' to restore your NAND with bootmii as IOS. I will give it a try on my wii to see what happens (I have bootmii as boot2 anyway).

    because if it failed half way through, you wouldnt be able to boot the wii to be able to get back into bootmii.

    if you try to restore a backup, it will warn you its not recommended and you need to press all the button on a gamecube pad for it to start.

    Did you ever try doing a NAND restore from bootmii IOS?
