    Install BootMii as Boot2 in 4.2u?

    Hi guys,

    I want to guarantee full brick protection for my Wii. I already have priiloader and bootmii as an ios- but I have heard that BootMii as Boot2 can provide 99% brick protection. I have homebrew channel installed and a 4.2u system menu. I already searched but there didn't seem to be a solution.

    Also, if I did manage to install it, how do I access it if my wii were ever bricked? Will priiloader interfere with boot2?

    You run the hackmii installer. If bootmii is available as boot2 on your console, great. If not, there is nothing that can be done.

    Consoles made after some point in 2008 (no concrete date is known) have a new version of boot1 that patches the vulnerability which allows the console to boot a modified boot2. The Hackmii Installer will detect this situation and refuse to modify boot2. Since boot1 cannot be updated, all consoles already manufactured before this update are safe.

    run the hackmii installer and see if it lets you install bootmii as boot2

    Just run the Hackmii installer (what you ran to install Bootmii as IOS and the HBC), and see if Bootmii as boot2 is available. Check here for more information on brick protection.

    Bootmii as IOS/boot2 and Priiloader will not interfere with each other.
