    Don't mess with IOS's under 200. That is an easy way to brick. Your stubs won't hurt anything. You have a lot of patched IOS's as it is. Messing with more of them isn't a good idea.

    Ok so theres nothing wrong with my system and I should just leave it alone? I was also wondering, How do you use the NAND backup files to restore my Wii? Whats the process? I just want to know how it works in case I ever have any problems.

    Other than a few slightly outdated IOS's, your whole setup is perfect. You could update them, but I recommend just leaving them alone unless you buy a game that needs one.
    Depending on how new your Wii is, you may not be able to restore your NAND yourself. If you were able to install bootmii as boot2, then you can, but it isn't safe to use bootmii as IOS for anything other than backups.

    That does not mean you shouldn't make a backup if you only have the IOS version. In the event of a full brick, you can pay someone on this forum to reprogram your nand using the backup and keys that are made by bootmii. That is a lot cheaper than having to buy a new Wii because you didn't bother making a backup.

    Ok then I'll just leave it for now, but if you dont mind telling me which IOS are outdated?

    I did make a NAND back up when I installed HBC, and I installed Bootmii as a IOS because that was my only option (and according to the report I have Boot2 v4?). So I do have the NAND backup but what are the "keys" your talking about?

    I bought my Wii in 2009-2010 from Target.

    Thanks for the info I appreciate it.

    I'd go through them all, but I'm trying on several threads right now. If you want to check yourself, either look at the "What is installed" chart on my Update All Your IOS's guide (in my sig), or Ithians Complete List of IOS Files and Their Functions guide.

    If you made a Nand backup, you should have gotten a nand.bin file and a keys.bin (or maybe key.bin). Those two files are very important.

    Only Wii's made before mid-2008 can use bootmii as boot2, since Nintendo fixed a bug in boot1 that allowed the install.

    Ok so If Im understanding this correctly...I have a 2009-2010 Wii thus I was only able to install BootMii as a IOS during the installation of HBC ONLY in order to make a NAND backup, but afterwards am unable to use Bootmii?

    Any Wii can install and use Bootmii as IOS, and you can make a backup anytime as long as your Wii is still functional and you have the bootmii files on your SD card. You can easily access Bootmii as IOS through the HBC or Priiloader.

    I have bootmii as boot2 and IOS, and I usually make backups with the IOS version. I haven't actually timed it, but the IOS version seems to work a little faster.

    As of hackmii 0.7, bootmii as IOS is a required install. If you don't have have it when you install the HBC, it will automatically be installed, and I don't think the HBC will function without it.

    The fact that you have boot2v4 isn't what stops you from installing bootmii as boot2. If your Wii came with it, that is just an indicator that your Wii is too new. I have boot2v4, but my Wii was made some time around 2006 or 2007. Updating to 4.2+ through Nintendo automatically installs boot2v4. There is no benefit, it was just an attempt to overwrite your bootmii install.

    Ok I understand, so I can use Bootmii as a IOS anytime I want but I cannot use Bootmii as boot2. So then what is the difference between using it as a IOS or boot2?

    Correct. Take a look at this for an explanation (plus a lot of other helpful info) to your question. Ignore the Preloader part, since it does not apply to Priiloader (what replaced Preloader).
