Thread: BootMii question

  1. #1

    BootMii question

    After following the Softmod ANY wii guide using LetterBomb all is working fine.

    However when I'm on the HBC and choose to start BootMii the screen goes blank and the blue LED (tray) starts flashing.
    Doing a search it tells me the bootmii folder is missing on the SD card.

    I found the missing files doing a search again and put them into place.

    Now when I boot my wii, with the bootmii folder on SD, the wii goes to a black screen and nothing happens.
    When I delete the bootmii folder on SD all is working as normal again.

    What am I missing here?
    I would like to know how to start bootmii in case I ever need to.
    Thx for your help.

    Make sure bootmii folder is on root of sd card with files armboot.bin and ppcboot.elf in the folder.

    Yep, I did create a bootmii folder on the root of the SD.
    With: armboot.bin, bootmii.ini, ppcboot.elf

    Somehow I could not download these files from the bootmii.org site.
    (Found it using the search on this forum.)
    The bootmii.org site gives you a boot.elf and bootmini.elf

    Is it possible it looks for these files?

    No, those files are for the Hackmii installer. I think you should rerun the hackmii install, probably bootmii did not install properly.

    Hmmm, today I did the SM 4.3 -> SM 4.1 downgrade and installed priiloader again.
    Do you think this is somehow related?

    If I run sysCheck it seems to be fine.
    I also see two short blue flashes when I boot the Wii.
    If I'm correct, this is the indication bootmii is installed.

    It's not related. Open up the HackMii Installer again and so the "Prepare SD Card" thing. Then install BM again. That should fix you up.

    I do know that the BootMii button on HBC only works for the IOS version of BootMii, if it's installed over boot2 then you won't be able to launch it through the HBC.

    I'm not certain, but I *believe* that the two short flashes indicate that BootMii is installed as boot2, which means that in order to run it, just make sure your SD card with the bootmii folder (and above-mentioned) files are in the root of the card, and start the Wii. It *should* boot BootMii before the System Menu. (not entirely sure, because aside from the initial NAND backup, I've never launched BootMii before...)

    That's entirely correct. However, BM/IOS installs automatically with HackMii Installer 0.7-1.0. His sysCheck says that it's installed, anyway.

    Thx all, but it seems I figured out what went wrong.

    On my NAS I found the original bootmii files, created when I followed the "mod any wii" guide.
    After putting these files inside the bootmii folder it works again!

    It could be there are some different bootmii files around here.
    So if you follow the guide, make sure you store the original bootmii files on a safe place.
    (Together with your NAND backup.)
    Lucky me, I found them again.

    The MD5's can be found here if anyone needs them to compare:
