    About Bootmii on Boot2

    I am completely new to the Wii Modding scene and I am just wondering if these ideas will work/why not. The newer Wii's come with a patched boot1 so it does not allow a boot2 change. Isn't there a way to either 1. Downgrade boot1 to the exploitable one OR 2. Re-enable the exploit somehow by reopening the hole
    I was reading up on this and the ideas popped into my head. Please reply why you can't do this because I'm sure it went through someone's head.

    based on bootmii.org
    What does "The installed boot1 version prevents a boot2 install mean? Are you going to fix it?


    No, it can't be fixed. Installing as boot2 is the most useful way to install BootMii, but it requires that we exploit a particularly silly bug in a part of the system that can not be changed under any circumstances. Nintendo finally fixed this bug in new Wiis that were released sometime in 2008. We have looked for a suitable replacement for this exploit, but have not found one, and it does not seem likely that anyone ever will.
