    P.P.S any good place for mym files forwii menu themes?

    THANKS
    Maui got your question so I'll get the P.S. parts. There is a lot you can learn and do with a Wii. I've been at it for a while and haven't even explored probably like half the things you can do with/to a Wii. Secondly you shouldn't be messing with themes unless you have a boot2 Wii. Otherwise you may need your NAND backup and someone to flash your Wii.

    It can be used for a bunch of things but the most common thing it is used for is making a NAND backup. If you can install it as boot2 it makes recovering your Wii a whole lot easier. You can flash your NAND yourself if you have a boot2 Wii...Otherwise if you have it as an IOS you can't restore your own NAND and have to send it off to someone to do it for you. Here is it's WiiBrew page.

    Probably made after they corrected boot1. Nobody knows the exact dates of things and cut off points.

    i have managed to apply some themes with mymenuify only a few seem to brick (or lose the system menu) but the themes are hard to find any idea where to find them? (mym files) thanks
    what i meant b4 was if the wii bricked and it wasnt set to autoboot bootmii ( as ios) and i didnt have priiloader would i be screwed basicly? last Q i downgraded the system menu to 4.1e with MMM is that ok? or should i of stayed on 4.3E?

    Yes, without priiloader you would be screwed. Installing csm files with mymenufii should leave a functional priiloader to recover with, installing themes via wad removes priiloader. There is a post here with a bunch of 4.1 csm files, just google wiihacks csm

    so would u think it is useless to have bootmii as ios even if u backup the nand if u were not willing to send away the wii to restore the nand from the backup as u cant do it ur self?
    P.S so take it if am right i would be as well just have the priiloader as the bootmii as ios serves no help.?
    P.S.S know any guides for xbox 360? think i have done all i can do with the wii.
    THANKS

    There is small sub xbox forum if you scroll down the main forum page. Not any guide exactly but The jungle flasher tutorial is available for d/l which gives you plenty of info n all xbox drives.
