recently purchased wii with LU32/3.4U, can I use bootmii/boot2?
I am a newbie to wii. Sorry if I ask stupid question. I read FAQ, softmod guid, etc. I am OK with most things but still have a few which are not quite sure.
I purchased my wii last month. The serial number start with LU38 and system menu is 3.4U. I knew I can use the guide in this forum to softmod it. But I want to have nano backup before I do it. I can not use preloader because somebody mentioned it not works for 3.4U. I want to use bootmii/boot2 but not quite sure if it is possible in this console. I did research and I think LU32 console should be made before mid of 2008. But how come a recently purchased wii with this SN? BTW I purchased from one big retail store in Canada.
If I can not install bootmii as boot2, any other way to protect my wii unbrick?

A recently purchased 3.4 Wii is probably not going to allow bootmii to install as boot2. When you run bootmii, it will tell what options are available for installation. While there are no preloader hacks for 3.3 and 3.4 Wiis, the softmod tutorial states that you should update to 4.1 following the steps in the tutorial. You should only update using this method, do not allow Nintendo to perform an online update. After update to 4.1, you will then be able to have the protection of preloader: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
