    CFG USB saving pics to USB?

    Hey guys, I modded my cousin's Wii using Maui's guide (not installing BootMii, my cousin is 5 so it would add extra confusion.) So now I need CFG to have pictures, so she can easily pick between games. However the HDD has the "forwarder". The pictures save on the SD, so in order to get pictures I have to have the SD in. Well I think Hombrew Channel mistakes the SD for having the actual boot.dol, when in reality it's the HDD. So the solution I want is to get the game covers to save on the HDD.

    (This looks very confusing, if you need more clarity let me know)

    (When I put the CFG USB on the SD it works, however I need that SD for my Wii)

    cfg will save to the usb, just take out the card and get the covers via wi-fi. If that doesnt do it, look here for all of your cfg instructions.

    What you mean about bootmi? You need to install is and back up your nand....I am pretty sure it is listed as NOT OPTIONAL.

    Oh, well I didn't want to install it as my cousin is 5 and she has a brother who is 3 and the Wii process is already complicated. Didn't want to add something to make it even more complicated considering they don't have a GC controller to easily navigate through the menu.

    The "power/reset/eject" buttons act as the controls.. you dont NEED a game cube controller

    I don't think you understand what bootmii is for or how it is used. For your mod you should look at is as insurance. You may never need it, but sure will be glad if you do. Once it is installed you can pretty much forget about it unless something goes wrong with your wii, then bootmii may ave you from having an expensive paperweight. There is no reason for the little ones to ever see it or even have to worry about it. Bootmii and prriloader are the 2 things that ANY moded wii needs to have installed. Both can run in the background and hopefully never need to be used. By the time you realize that you need either of them it is usually too late. You make your own choice on that, but consider yourself warned.

    As far as the covers go, I hope the info I gave you has helped.

    It has but I know bootmii is brick protection, however doesn't it give you that screen when you boot up, it would just make the whole process if playing a game more complicated. I have priiloader though.

    Wait would installing bootmii as boot2 on an SD, making a nand backup, and not putting the SD in the wii. Would I still be able to fix my wii later if I brick.

    yes! You can even leave it on the card and just rename the folder so it does not start up all the time.

    Would Installing Bootmii as Boot2 on a 4.3 wii, and naming the folder Rochelle's Wii. Then installing it on mine (used to have it but it started as a black screen) and naming it Austin's Wii. Then lets say I one of our Wii's Brick. If Rochelle's bricked I rename Rochelle's Wii to the Bootmii default folder name and it's saved, given that I made a backup. And If mine broke, the same thing except renaming the Austin's wii folder.

    And could you install it on a HDD?

    The Nand.bin and keys.bin are unique to each wii. You can store them wherever you would like to, just keep them straight as to which is which. You only need one copy of the bootmii folder, it will run on any wii. I am pretty sure bootmii only works from the sd card, and it is very particular about the type of card as well.
