    Will downgrading allow me to install bootmii as boot2?

    Hello everyone,

    As of two days ago, I was a complete newbie, but I have done a lot of reading since. We just got a new Wii - serial # LU11, 3.4U firmware. I ultimately want to use a USB hard drive to boot games, and I think I have somewhat of an understanding what I need to do. I'm using the hackmii installer with bannerbomb exploit to get HBC, DVDx and bootmii on the wii. I currently have installed as IOS, because boot2 was unavailable.

    My question: I have read about how bootmii installed on boot2 provides a nearly-perfect safety net against bricking. Can I downgrade or anything to allow bootmii to install as boot2? Or is boot2 not as big of a deal as I make it out to be? Do I want to downgrade the firmware for any other purpose?

    Thanks in advance,

    Downgrading wii not allow you to install boot2. Bootmii as boot2 can only be installed if your wii has vulnerable boot1. Meaning wiis made before around September 2008 or so.
