    Why does the guide tell you to use and SD card smaller than 2gb?

    I went out and got a 256 mb SD card, but when I go into homebrew to install bootmii, it says my card is too small! Says it requires 600mb of space.

    Perhaps that should be mentioned in the guide.

    I was going to borrow my brothers larger 8gb SD card tomorrow. Is there issues with using a larger card as well?

    Thanks!

    To backup your NAND, you'd need a 1GB SD card. I think what mauifrog meant to say was use a Sandisk full SD card, 2GB. I do know a 1GB card would be sufficient, but not a 256mb one. Some things won't like your 8GB SDHC card, get the one I mention --- if you live in the states, the Wii-branded one (made by Sandisk) is $10 @ Wally World.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Will try again with the proper SD card tomorrow. Wish me luck!

    I do think the instructions should be modified to mention that you'll need at least 1gb though So future noobsters like myself don't run into the same problem!

    I've already made that suggestion to mauifrog... I think it a simple editing error. Be aware you can do this with a 256mb card, but you'd have to skip the NAND backup and do it later (something we generally discourage, but it is doable nonetheless).

    Noob having trouble...

    Im running on 4.1u and I've gotten myself stuck on Chapter 2. I have followed all the steps, but when I launch BootMii it always kicks my wii to a black screen and the disc opening flashes blue. When I try the other method Multi-Mod Manager never shows up in the HBC.

    I'm sure that I am screwing something up, but if someone has any tips that would be awesome. I've read threw about 50 pages of this thread and searched the forums and I can't seem to find anything. Please help.

    I also wanted to quickly ask what the advantage of downgrading the system is. The instructions mention that you can downgrade from 4.3 to 4.1, but why? It does say it's optional, so unless there is a good reason to do so, I'd rather not.

    Thanks again

    If you're already @ 4.3, the only reason at all to downgrade would be if you also had a hardmod (which 4.2 and 4.3 kills out of region game playing on the hardmod side --- but not the softmod side).

    Ahh, good to know. Thanks again for the fast reply. Honestly, the fastest reply I've ever seen!!

    This is all so new and exciting haha. I wish I had that SD card so I could do it right now, but this is giving me the chance to review the entire guide again which is very helpful.
